We had our Dr.s appointment yesterday and we found out Presley has hair!! We got a picture of it and it makes me laugh when I look at it. If he's anything like his daddy, he will be a little mini chia pet :)
We have lots of Christmas festivities this week. Starting with the Robertson Tire Christmas Party, then the Robertson Christmas, my family Christmas and the Hartman Family Christmas (Shane's mom's side). This is the time of year when I am thankful we don't both have huge familiess because I don't know how we would do it all! Luckily it works out nicely. I've already posted pics of the nursery on facebook but I am just SO EXCITED about it! It's my favorite room in our house! Check it out :)
I had Urban Belly pics done a few weeks ago by the amazing Dale and Meredith and can't wait to see them! I haven't bugged them about when they will be done but I can't wait!!!!
I pretty much have baby/nesting brain and will be going out the day after Christmas to get some plastic bins and storage stuff. We will be moving in 2011 after the baby comes and I might as well start getting everything organized.
I'm also excited about New Years! It's our nephews first birthday and then we are going to hang out with some friends that night to ring in the new year. Not sure what we are going to do, but whatever we do it will be fun!

Place Mats- $2.00 each (I bought 2, one for each chair)
Pillow from Walmart- $2.50
I spent a total of $6.50 on my pillows for our porch! I bought the cheapest pillow I could find at Walmart, cut it open and used the stuffing to stuff my place mats.

We have finally started to get things done for the nursery! I am a huge planner and I can't imagine waiting until the last minute to get things done, so off we go. The chandelier arrived TODAY! Here is a pic :)
I found several online and then Shane picked the final one :) It's completely white so I'm really excited!
I went to Dallas yesterday with my MIL and we found all of the fabric for the nursery! Now our bedding will be made and then of course I will post pics :) Shane's Grandma is making our bedding and everything. We are so lucky that she is going to do it. I mean how special is that?! I also have a goal for myself this week. I am getting my sewing machine out and I'm gonna start learning as I go. I have too many ideas for Presley, I just have to learn...like now.
When we were looking for cribs, I just couldn't find one that had the total package. Finally, I found a crib I loved but it still needed my touch heehee :) Here is a picture of the applique I bought and painted to match the crib. (The pic quality is horrible...better pics will come later)
Today I went with my mom and ordered our chair and ottoman. Anyone that has shopped for babies has probably felt the dot fabric that is extremely soft...that's what the chair and ottoman are made out of! I don't think I will ever move from it when we get it haha.
The next step is meeting with a really nice girl this who is going to do some artwork for his room. She is also going to decorate the mobile I am making, that will hang from the ceiling over his bed!! I'm realllllllllly excited about it. I will definitely post pics when she is done with everything.
A few more pics of some new owl themed items I am getting for Pres...

I'm excited about the colors we have chosen...not the typical brown and blue most people do. I'll post pics of fabrics soon too. Presley is moving around more and more every day. Shane finally felt him move on Monday :) it's still a little hard to feel it from the outside but he felt it and it was sweet :)I get more and more excited every day! I'm really excited I'm having a boy because I LOVE fishing, horses, and all the fun things that little boys love. Now I'll have someone to do that stuff with! My dad also has a nickname picked out "Elvis" haha. I think it's adorable and anyone that knows my nickname from my dad knows that Presley got off easy! He's already got Presley a cotton candy machine so I hope he likes candy! Haha :)

I heard one of my favorite songs today "Love Like Crazy". I always sing like a rockstar when I'm in the car and it was cranked up LOUD. I just love everything about it. Maybe not the six kids part that reminds me of The Duggers haha. This song always makes me feel so thankful for what I have and makes me want to take chances and do things that maybe I wouldn't have before. Just thought I would share :)
I listened to Presley's little heartbeat today...I just love the sound, there's nothing like it. Shane and I have been discussing colors for the nursery...he wants blue/orange and green. It sounds a little crazy but who knows. I'm planning on going to Dallas with my mom and mom-in-law hopefully next month to pick out fabrics. After that, we will get the bedding made and of we go! Tonight I cleaned out a bunch of drawers and I can't believe how much junk was in them. I'm selling some stuff because I've always heard "one mans trash is another mans treasure" haha.
Tomorrow I leave for OKC for an over night trip with my dad. I'm excited to see what's in store for us Thursday at the Trade Show! Tomorrow is just setting up so it won't take very long.
Last but not least, a little fun to help me remember this time :)

I also have one in white as well :) We have shirts, signage, handouts etc. Everything is ready to go for Thursday! I'm excited to meet a bunch of grocery store owners and get some new business!
On the baby front, we are having a garage sale on Friday and Saturday to clear out even more junk. How I accumulate so much stuff I don't know but it happens. We are doing some remodeling and moving some rooms around after the garage sale is over. We can't wait! I'm 4 months along now and it has flew by. Crazy!!

Tomorrow is the first ARKANSAS game!! We are heading out bright and early! I am even more excited because we get to go eat at my absolute FAVORITE place Loafin' Joe's. I can't even put into words how much I love this place. I really am obsessed. Bye for now.

We decided we are going to do an owl theme for the nursery. I am super excited and I can't wait to start decorating! Okay, okay I already have started but I mean REALLY start. My grandma always loved owls and for some reason it popped in my head when I was looking on Etsy. To give you an idea, here is what one of the pillows looks like for the crib. This one has it's eyes closed like it's sleeping, the other two we are getting have eyes opened :)
Here is to having a good night and me promising to post on a regular basis.

As soon as we got to the house it was 96 degrees in the house!!! The ac wasn't working and the temperature continued to climb. To make a looooooooooong story short someone came over, couldn't fix it and got us a hotel room down the road. The hotel was one-of-a-kind. The room was so hot and the mattress felt like they picked a rock up on the side of the road and placed it in the room and called it a bed. I slept horribly and meanwhile I'm pregnant and hotter than Haiti. I don't think you can really understand how I feel unless you have been/or are pregnant. I'm already hotter than a fried green tomato daily, and when there's no cold air I am just a basket case. It's the worst situation.
The night turned out better because I surprised the hubby with a Doppler and we got to listen to little Robertson's heartbeat. Going strong at 165 :) I'm just grateful we don't have to go without ac because I know there's a lot of people that do.
Today we went to Dixie Stampede and I loved it! Shane of course thought it was kind of dumb, but he loved the food. About that...you eat with your hands and they give everyone their own chicken. The waitress placed it on my plate and I became a vegetarian for the meal. You could see the feet and arms and it was like it walked onto my plate. GROSS! I couldn't help but notice the poor chickens butt hole so it was downhill from there. I loved the show though because I LOVE horses. I used to have them and it was one of my favorite childhood memories :) They're my favorite animal.
We are having a great trip though despite all the setbacks. We are back at the house and it's cooler now, so here's to a good night!

Last night we went and saw SALT. It was way better than I thought it would be. It kept me on the edge of my seat and Angelina Jolie is just GORGEOUS. If you like action movies I would recommend it! We went to dinner before the movie at Hideaway with Adam & Sami. We are so excited that they just moved back to Tulsa! We love having married friends :) They introduced us to Orange Leaf after the movie and it was a.m.a.z.i.n.g. to say the least. They have 16 flavors of frozen yogurt and a huge topping bar. You pay by the ounce so it is pretty cheap! We will be making this part of our routine now :)
Today we went to church at GUTS. We absolutely LOVE this church and are excited we found our church home. We are excited about all of the people we will meet there!! I'm excited to get more involved once we join. We went to lunch with Shane's parents for his birthday and then had a fun day swimming and trying to come up with some baby names haha. That's all for now, I gotta take a nap :)
