Girly Apron - A Project From Pinterest

I have been starting at this cut fabric and pattern for a week. It kind of confused me, plus the pattern was in centimetres and all my sewing, cutting and measuring tools are in inches. Not that I can't convert it, but it just was an extra step. I hd to make the bib quite a bit wider, the size from the pattern was half the size,  quite impractical. I think it turned out great, and was fairly easy to sew when I finally figured everything out!

This was my inspiration from Pinterest:

Phone/Mail Center - A Project

I have wanted a cupboard like this for a long time. I looked at a lot of stores and stuff, but everything was well over $200 and I didn't LOVE anything. My mom happened to have an antique cupboard in her garage which was pretty much what I wanted. 
 I cleaned it, sanded it, spray painted it turquoise and sanded the edges for a worn look and replaced the hardware. I love how it turned out.
 It is a much needed pop of colour in my grey and white kitchen! The more I look at it the more I love it!

Baby Boy Quilt

Finally finished my boy version of this pattern! But it can probably be used for a girl too!

Yet Another Beautiful Wedding

This past weekend I was excited to be the maid of honour for my cousin, Mallory. She was the maid of honour in my wedding party so I was glad I could finally return the favour! It was a busy weekend full of wedding activities, but it was a lot of fun. Saturday, the day of the wedding, was actually quite relaxed and laid back, probably due to the organization and planning abilities of my cousin and her family! It was a really great day. 

Here is my cuz, another bridesmaid and my with our hair all ready to go!

We took pictures at a really beautiful quarry close to where Mallory lives. I managed to snap a few shots with my camera, I can't wait to see the ones from the photographer!
 My beautiful cousin!
 Our adorable cousin was the flower girl.
 Love this shot!
 They had TWO wedding cakes! Such a neat idea! And the cakes were delicious. Their wedding was full of personal touches that suited them perfectly. I didn't get enough pictures of everything.
 Eric dressed to match me!! :)

37 Weeks

Size of baby: Length of a stalk of Swiss Chard ( 6.3 lbs and 19 inches)
Total Weight Gain: 34 lbs, yikes. But I am not really going to worry about it for the rest of the pregnancy.
Continuing symptoms: Sore feet, frequent bathroom visits, sore hips, braxton hicks, swollen feet and hands.
New symptoms this week: Heartburn is reappearing, but isn't really that bad. 

Sleep: Now that I am not working, I sleep in a lot. Probably too much.
Maternity Clothes: Some shirts are getting a bit short
What I'm Eating: Regular diet
Cravings: Nothing specific that I can think of

Movement: Lots of belly shifting, and of course LOTS of movement at night when it is time for mom to fall asleep. I often have to switch sides because that is the only way I can fall asleep. 

Other Pregnancy News: FULL TERM! This is an awesome milestone to reach. And with this the realization that our baby could be here any day. It is still so hard to believe, and I know it won't fully sink in until baby gets here. There is no way of me being fully prepared for something so unknown.

Mat leave is pretty awesome. I have been keeping myself pretty busy, but I have also done ALOT of relaxation. I was the maid of honour in my cousins wedding this past weekend. It was a lot of fun, and we were all nervous baby Dueck would decide to come before hand and that I wouldn't be able to be there. But I am glad he or she decided to wait. That wedding was the last event I really had to look forward to, so now I pretty much just wait around for baby to come! I don't think I will be bored for at least a week or two, I have a lot of project ideas that will keep me occupied!

This picture is from my cousins wedding this weekend:

This is how swollen my feet get. Anything that puts pressure on them leaves an indent. So bizarre!!

A Beautiful Vintage Inspired Wedding

This past weekend we attended the wedding of Eric's cousin Colton and his beautiful bride Tori. It was a gorgeous wedding and the weather was perfect!

 LOVED all of their decor. There was a lot of work and thought that went into it, and it paid off!

 Their wedding favors were Jones Soda with personalized labels!

 This pond was right behind the tent. It was such a pretty backdrop!
