The new abstract line looks great on canvas or framed.  Its a great way to add depth and color to an area.  These make great conversation pieces as the more you search the more layers you will find.

Hi Friends! It’s been awhile…..

Hi friends! It feels so good to be back.

It’s been awhile since I’ve been on the blog. 🙂  A set of twins and another sweet baby has me in a new life.  With this new life has come different opportunity.

A fresh look……

Along with my sister we are providing a way to own a piece of Oklahoma for yourself to jazz up your walls.  I recently was looking for something western to put up in my own house and after endless searching I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for so I made
it happen…..

Grandma’s Gowns

Today at the store the nicest man helped me take my cart to my car and load all my things up. I believe the world is still good and chivalry is still alive but I have also come to the realization that I must look as huge as I feel! 🙂

I have some of my Ga-ga’s gowns that I have saved from when she passed away and we cleaned out her belongings. Some women love shoes but this woman loved nightgowns. I don’t know why but three of them caught my eye and besides a couple of frogs from her collection they were the only “things” that I wanted to keep. My memories of our times together were enough for me and still fill up my heart.

Funny enough these gowns are now some of the most comfy PJ’s I own. Maybe because I’m getting big as a house but at any rate, days at home encourage me to get my camera out and document these last few weeks of being pregnant, my growing belly and feeling these babies close. I know myself and I know I am going to miss this part.

As excited as I am for our babies arrival I love to feel them roll around in my belly. When they are tucked away in there they are quiet, always close to me, I can take them anywhere, get in and out of the store fast and I don’t have to worry about them as much as I will when they are here in this big scary world. 🙂

Twin Bump-Date through 30 weeks

I left the last “bump-date” at 22 weeks and man how things have changed. I know I always say this but I really can’t believe how fast this pregnancy is rushing by. Especially when I look back through the pictures of this growing bump. I have LOVED being pregnant. I haven’t loved all the heartburn, extra weight or when an elbow gets in my ribs at 2 a.m., but I have such a new respect and outlook on my body that I never had before. God is amazing!

I am officially 30 weeks and we have 7 weeks or less until these two bundles of joy get here. I pray that I can go all the way to 37 weeks. I have never felt SO good. We have felt SO blessed that everything has gone so well and these babies have been behaving and following the rules too. They are just growing and so am I and they keep getting stronger by the day.

I missed Week 26 😦

Week 29

Week 30

My husband is away with his job for the next three weeks and so there are extra prayers that all continues to go smooth. Especially until he gets back home to us. My doctor has officially but me on moderate bed rest (on my feet no more than 6-hours a day) as a percaution so that we have the best chance of making it all the way to the end (she must know me – it’s hard for this cowgirl to slow myself down) 🙂 So I am taking leave from work for half-days from here until my official leave starts in a month. That’s probably been the hardest part for me through this whole experience. I’m not very good idol. but have come to accept that my JOB is to keep these babies cooking for a little bit longer.

I have officially gained 37 pounds. Not too bad for twins but the doctors tell me to get ready to pack on about two pounds a week from here on out – Math hasn’t always been my favorite subject but by my calculations that is about 15 more pounds and that is going to put me right over 50 pounds in the end and that is right on track for twins.

This weight is good weight and not something I am worried about at this moment unless you count that I want these babies to pack it on because I don’t want runts, but instead BIG STRONG babies that don’t need NICU! SO BRING IT ON! 🙂

I LOVE our Legend and Taycie with all my heart already and am relishing in these quiet times I am spending alone in our house just thinking about them with the anticipation of how much will change when they get here. I feel confident that we are as best prepared as we can be for their arrival. They will be our complete. My faith is strong – stronger than it’s ever been.
