so many wins.

This weekend was full of winning moments. Not only did my ECU Pirates beat Virginia Tech, but I also had 2 baby showers and finished up my last craft for the nursery!

Bright and early Saturday morning (aka at 7am when Sawyer decided to get up), I finally got to work on re-covering Sawyer's old pirate bumper using this tutorial. I have been putting off making the bumpers because I was so scared to actually cut huge hunks from the fabric I ordered, I bet I measured each strip 10 times! No pics of the finished product yet because I ran out of the stupid ribbon I was using for the ties, so come back tomorrow for a full nursery & name reveal.

Saturday afternoon we went to Raleigh for a shower with our tailgate crew. Saturday also happened to be the ECU vs. Virginia Tech game, so even though the shower was supposed to start at 2pm, we ended up not opening gifts until 4:30-ish because we were so busy watching the game!

too busy watching the game for shower business

I did get some great gifts from our friends though and it was wonderful getting to watch such a high-stress game together. We managed to not get any pictures because we were so caught up with the Pirate win!

Sunday we had another shower, this one was at my church hosted by two of my best friends, Dana & Hope and Dana's mom, Mrs. Teresa. While we were calling the shower a "sprinkle" since we don't expect much with this being our second baby and the same gender as our first, our church family, family & friends were too sweet and loaded us with gifts! I spent several hours in the nursery last night putting away diapers, wipes, outfits & bottles! Forgive the quality of the pictures below, they were stolen from Facebook or taken with my horrible phone camera (note to self: stop forgetting your actual camera!)

so much food
the whole driver-side backseat was filled, even with the seat folded down! #blessed
Now that we've got the nursery basically done and all the stuff we could possibly need (save for a few things I need to pick up thanks to some awesome Target gift cards) we are ready for baby. Well ready, but not wanting him to come out for at least 7 weeks!


  1. Look at all those gifts!! I am so happy ECU pulled off a win Saturday! What a great game!!

  2. holy crap with those gifts momma! you made out! Also, I had NO idea you were so tall.
