My crafty side has been exposed!!!

Yesterday was our half-way point appointment to see baby Presley :) He's growing right on track! I am just amazed at how he already has such a cute little face. See what I mean?!?! He already melts my heart. I'm starting to feel him move around but it's still a little to early for Shane to feel it. We were at dinner tonight and I felt him still scares right when it happens, because I'm not used to it yet hahaha.

I am an avid follower of the TV show The View and today they talked about God and creation. How in the world could someone think that "science" is behind creating the world?? God created everything and there is no way I could be carrying such an amazing gift if it wasn't a GOD THING!! I could go on and on but I will stop for now. 

On this pic he was being bashful and didn't want his picture's neat though because you can see his little ribs :)

Being pregnant has made me really get into my craft zone. I have always loved making things but now it is in overdrive and I love it! I made a really cute little Halloween display from scratch for our porch today and also a wreath!!! See below!

A close up of the crow and spider :)

Here's the wreath hanging on our front door...

Last, but not least, we have FINALLY moved all of our furniture around and we are really happy with how it all came together.  We just got a new TV and a desk that Shane is currently putting together...tick tock tick tock heehee :) We had an armoire I found at an antique store and had it repainted white with a little distressing on it so it looks vintage. We are going to do all white furniture because I think it just looks classic and "baby chic". You can't really tell the distressed look in the pic but you will get the idea. We can hang some of Presley's clothes in it because it holds baby hangers :) YAY!!!!

OKC How I Love Thee

I'm in Oklahoma City for the AWG Holiday Show tomorrow. My dad and I set up our booth today and I am really excited about how it turned out. Take a look!

I had all of the signs made and they turned out great!! The other equipment dealers don't have half of what our booth has so I feel like it is a success!! This place is going to be CrAzY tomorrow. The distributors for everything from Bounty Towels, Febreeze, Smart Chicken, Kraft, Pepsi, I mean if it's in a grocery store it's here. I'm excited to meet a bunch of grocery store owners and people who are in charge of the buying for them. I know my dad is looking forward to seeing some of his friends. Today has been a really fun day with my dad!! I'm excited about where things are going with me helping my dad.

We went and ate at Chelino's tonight. It's my favorite mexican restaurant and it tasted just like it always does. Amazing :)

To top things off, the last client I sold a house to just called and wants me to list his house! He already got a new job offer in Kansas City and they are moving back up there. So Sunday I will have another listing! Things are going great!!!

Never Let Your Prayin' Knees Get Lazy

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 :)

Football Fever!!!!

College football is FINALLY here!!! I must say, I love the Razorbacks but my heart will always be with the SOONERS on game day. Shane and I headed down to Fayetteville yesterday for the game and had a great time. We went and ate lunch at my favorite restaurant Loafin' Joes! I was making noise while I was eating I loved it so much, LOL. I can't help it, being pregnant makes you either REALLY want a certain food or it makes you nauseous at the sight of something. Speaking of restaurants, I am really excited to be helping my dad do the Associated Wholesale Grocery trade show on Thursday. I'm sure reading this you have no idea what that means. Basically any grocery store (Reasor's, Food Pyramid, Homeland, Harps, Buy For Less...just to name a few) go through AWG when they decide to build a store. They supply all of the food, equipment needed etc. That is where my dads company comes in. We sell all of the bakery, deli, kitchen equipment needed. My dad has a long standing relationship with AWG and they asked him to be in the show for free! My dad wasn't going to do it because he's already busier than he can almost handle, but I jumped on the chance to take it over and show my dad what I can do. It's the perfect opportunity for me to build some relationships and get some clients of my own. I've always helped him with things when he needs me, but I'm starting to be way more hands on. Even though my dad started the company in 1972 he never really had an official logo he used on everything. Now he does :) Below is the logo I had created for the business.

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!!

John Mayer Concert!

We just got home from the John Mayer concert. He has the most amazing voice HOWEVER my B (Britney) puts on the best show I have ever seen. Tonight was Presley's first concert, lol. He's probably gonna love John Mayer which is okay with me :) The book I'm reading says by week 16 the baby can hear, so I bet he wondered where in the world he was. We went to the concert with MP, Chad, Kara and Jared. It was a fun night! We went to Baxter's, our usual spot before concerts. We always park there and just walk to the BOK. It beats paying and it's only like a 5-10 minute walk.

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.

It's raining, it's pouring, I wish I was snoring...

Well, it's raining outside and I wish I could sleep. I'm only 4 months pregnant but I already can't sleep good. Not because of my stomach, I just toss and turn and Shane goes crazy. Anyone that knows my hubs knows that when he gets in his sleepy zone, it's downhill from there. Last night I was watching TV in bed and he just said"I gotta go to the other room" I quickly said "OK" and I don't think he was expecting that LOL. I've always been a night owl, and even though I'm married that just isn't something I can change. We really need a solution so any advice would be great! It says on my list of medicines that I could take Tylenol PM but there is NO WAY I would do that. I can't imagine making Presley fall asleep because of that. Since it's raining tonight hopefully I will fall asleep faster. Doubtful. Last night when I was in bed, I felt the WEIRDEST thing and I think it was the baby! It's still not time to really feel him a lot but I definitely did.

Also, our precious nephew Jude just had some pictures done. He is the cutest kiddo! Take a look :)

Presley and Jude are going to be best buds and will probably be on the same sports teams get the point. They will be attached at the hip and there's no other baby I would rather it be than little Jude. 

On a different note, John Mayer is tomorrow night!!! I am excitedaboutit!! I heart him and love every single song he sings. I've always said John Mayer and George Strait are the only two people that can sit with a guitar and have people mesmerized. It's not about the "show" with them. It's about the music.

Oh Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy!!!!!

Wow, it has been way too long since I wrote a post I have had several people comment and say that they love reading it and this whole time I didn't think anyone really did. A lot has happened...we are having a BOY!!!!! We are both super excited!!! I have always wanted a boy and of course Shane did (what guy doesn't want a boy to carry on the name?!). The doctor asked Shane if he "pinned the tail on the donkey" right before we found out (meaning did you make a boy), lol and he sure did! There was no denying it :) His name will be Presley Trace Robertson and I'm in LOVE with the name! Cutest name ever in my opinion, lol. It's funny because my mom came up with Presley and Mark (Shane's dad) randomly came up with Trace when we were all swimming one day. I have to say it is unique and perfect.

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 :)

Also, I found a vintage owl necklace over the weekend when I was "treasure hunting" as I call it.

Last but not least for this post is an AMAZING handmade owl purse-type thingy-ma-jig that my mom-in-law got me in San Francisco!! I am in love and I will be using it to put diapers/wipes in my diaper bag :) 

Here is to having a good night and me promising to post on a regular basis.
