About to Pop!

So I realized that I never did a post on a baby shower that I threw before summer started.  Oops!  Our theme was Kendra is About to Pop!  We LOVE the way it turned out and I ate about 4 pounds of popcorn on accident.  Oh well!  I will blame it on the fact that I was preggo?!  Anyways, Kendra had a TON of great family and friends there to celebrate sweet baby Asher!  And now that he is here I can say that he really is a DOLL!!

So here is the main set up:


I am SO sad that this turned out so dark.  BUT, I do have other pictures that show what everything is.

Our blow pop centerpiece.


I LOVE the balloons as the cupcake toppers.


More food and simple d├ęcor:


We had a Blessing Tree that I am sure Kendra loved getting to read all of her guests blessing/prayers that we had for Asher!


Look at all those gifts!!


One of Kendra’s cousins made these ADORABLE cookies as our favors to our guests.


Here is Kendra and all of her hostesses!


I am planning another baby shower as we speak but it is all a secret until the invites go out!  SO EXCITED!!

I haven’t posted in well over a month!  Oh life.  We are doing well and Emma is growing and growing and growing!  We go for her 2 month check up next monday (tear) and I am going to bet that she is over 12 pounds already.  I love a chunky baby! Smile

Poor E has reflux and we haven’t gotten under control 100%.  She has really good days and then we have a spell of a few bad days in a row.  Today has not been a great day.  We can’t get 2 ounces down without crying and crying.  Sadness!  Poor thing is used to drinking at least 4 ounces at a time.  Anyone have any suggestions?  We are on Nutramigen and she takes Nexium in the morning and at night.  I guess we will see what the good old doc has to say!

I knew that getting back into shape was not going to be easy but this is RIDICULOUS.  I feel so fat that it is overly depressing.  I got the okay to workout at 6 weeks so I am on week 3 of working out at least 4 – 5 times a week and guess how much weight I have lost!  NONE.  Not even a damn pound.  Are you f-ing kidding me?!  Angers me.  Can you tell?  My mom took me to Kohls yesterday and bought me two pairs of pants because I am SO tired of wearing hideous maternity jeans.  The size that I had to buy was horrendous.  I have NEVER been that big, even when I weighed more than what I weigh now.  SO, Jeremy and I are going paleo!  I hear nothing but great things about it and a lot of people at Crossfit do it, so we are going to give it the ol College try.  Anyone do Paleo?  We won’t be 100% but as close as possible. 

These pounds better be coming off asap or I am asking for liposuction for Christmas. 

But, seeing this sweet smile makes all of this worth it!

Love my sweet baby!!
