It's that time of year again...the great State Fair of Texas! Paul's never been, so I was really looking forward to being able to take him out there. Even though the last couple of weeks have been very hectic, we were really looking forward to taking a break! We went with Nate and Jessica one evening last week. The weather was a little chilly, but at least it wasn't raining!! Paul finally got to experience the unhealthy fried food assortment available only at the fair!!
We didn't get any pictures really since it was getting dark, but at least we got a couple.

Paul and I have been super busy lately trying to get everything together and finished for baby Sophia's arrival! I had my baby shower a couple weeks ago and that was a blast! We got so many wonderful presents...I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to change Sophia's outfit twice a day just so she gets to wear everything!! I don't have too many pics from the baby shower, but I did get a great picture of me and mom and grandma.
After the shower we went and purchased the rest of the things we needed for the nursery. With the exception of a few pictures on the walls everything is finished!! We had started painting the nursery several months ago, but just finished the final touches shortly before the shower. It may have taken a while, but Paul did a great job of painting the room. And, thanks to him and Dad, the walls look wonderful with the chair railing they installed! Here's a look at the LONG process of putting the nursery together...
Here's the aftermath of the baby shower and some shopping on our part...
But FINALLY everything is put together!!
Sophia's pretty "Going Home" outfit!!!!
Everything's ready, so now we're just counting down the days! I certainly know that I'm ready for her to be here...it seems like everyday she's running out of room!! I definitely can't complain though...I have been very blessed with an easy pregnancy so far...now we're just hoping it stays that way for the next 5 weeks!

Paul and I went down to visit Brian and Amber (and fam) a couple weeks ago and Amber took some AWESOME maternity pictures for us! They came out great! We really wanted to capture this time since it's so special.
Thank you so much Amber!

We created this blog last November in hopes that we would actually keep it somewhat up-to-date, but that obviously hasn't happened! So I figured it was about time I tackle the massive update!
Paul and I celebrated our wonderful news a little late, but I guess that's better then never! Paul's parents were gracious enough to give us an overnight stay at a wonderful bed and breakfast in Arlington. We went to the Sanford house on Friday, May 29th and enjoyed every minute! They had a live jazz band on the patio and we had the perfect room...we were able to just sit on our balcony and enjoy the band! Sorry, don't have any pictures to post of our little outing. A couple weeks later we had our official "summer vacation", although it was cut much shorter so that I could save up my vacation time. We went with a couple of friends to a great little cabin in Oklahoma on the Glover River. We spent 3 days there just relaxing and enjoying great company.
