A Very Royal Christmas

I know these aren't really the Royals, but I can't help but adore these photos anyway, with look-alikes spoofing Prince George's first Christmas.

The corgis!!!!

I've seen them all over the place, but borrowed from people of course! 

Oh, and I'm totally sending the Royal Corgis an invitation to my wedding. Surely they'd attend, yes?

baby pineapple!

This Sunday will mark 34 weeks, so I thought I'd share a photo...this past week, at 33 weeks, Baby C has been the size of a pineapple, they say! I don't know who makes these fruit determinations, but they amuse me greatly. Another website told me she was a durian this week, and I am not 100% sure what a durian fruit is, to be honest  :) 

The nursery is coming along, and she has loads of clothes already. She's so loved, it amazes me at how many people have been so supportive of Steve and I during this time. I've been quite lucky and not had many typical symptoms at all, and overall, have felt very good, aside from being quite tired. If that's the worst I've felt, then I really have nothing to complain about, I know. 

We've had three lovely showers (in NH, DC and IA), and will not be travelling at all for Christmas, but my parents are coming down the weekend between then and New Years, and then Baby C will be here sometime in January! She's due January 26, which is two days after my birthday. I wouldn't mind if she came a little earlier than that, but not too early, of course! We'll see what happens!

snowy Sunday sewing

Happy Monday! 

When I woke up yesterday morning, it was snowing, and continued to do so on and off all day! I spent the day tidying the house, writing thank you notes for the baby showers I've been thrown, and then doing a bit of sewing. I am working on a quilt for Baby C, but took a break from that to make her a few pairs of leg warmers! 

I saw a few tutorials on pinterest, and Saturday evening, I was at Target for a few things, so I grabbed a few pairs of women's knee socks ($2.50 each!), and whipped these up! Once I figured it out, each pair took about ten minutes. I will admit that I did the first one wrong twice before figuring it out  :) 

This is the tutorial I used, and I very much appreciated the photos! I had read the instructions a few times, but then when I went to make them, I turned one of the pieces the wrong way, twice, and had to redo them! No big deal. 

Cute, eh? 

Now I want to make so many more, I just love them! 

Babies in white onesies and leg warmers...nothing better! 

How was your weekend?

How many is too many bridesmaids? 

I'm just not sure what to do about them! I have a number of close friends, and I've been in a number of weddings too. I could have seven, I could have nine. Is nine too many? Most people say yes it is too many, but also, to do what you want, as it's your wedding. True, but perhaps easier said than done? I don't want to offend people, nor hurt any feelings, and I am feeling so torn about this! 

How many bridesmaids did you have? How many is the most you've seen at a wedding that you've either been in or attended?
