Ballet Slippers...

Thats the color pink I chose for the girls nursery and it is PINK! Lol. Thank goodness I didn't go with the brighter pink because this is definatly pink enough. I can't wait for the second coat to be put up and the cribs to be put in there! Mom also ordered the changing table and dresser for the nursery yesterday so that should be in around the same time the other crib comes in!

Now, because we are switching around all of our rooms we have stuff everywhere! I can't wait to get my house back to normal and all the rooms done and set. The good thing about it all is my whole upstairs has been painted at some point over the past 6 months! The only room left to repaint is the livingroom (and Gary doesn't know it yet but I am already picking out the color for it).

Now if I could just figure out what to put up on the rest of the walls I would be all set with the nursery! Any ideas???

23 Weeks

Here is my belly pic from this week! I am still feeling great except for this constant annoying feeling like babies are punching me in the bladder!

Spoiled Babies!

You know, it amazes me already. These girls are not even here yet and they are the most spoiled things on the planet! Everytime I see something cute I have to buy it for them. I think they have more clothes than I do already. Today on baby steals they had the most adorable rufflebutts. I of course had to buy 2 before they sold out! They are pink and adorable. I can't wait for them to get here!

On a side note. We are starting the nursery this weekend. I still need to pick out a paint color. Which of course will be some variation of pink and then we will be all set to go! We only have one crib to set up this weekend so that shouldn't take too long! Our other one is coming sometime in the next 2 weeks. Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later!

I will feel so much better when I get their dresser and changing table in though. I have so many clothes and cloth diapers to put away and no place to put them right now. Its driving me nuts!

There is soo much to do before they get here. It just overwhelms me sometimes! Between doing the nursery, and moving our bedroom, washing all the cloth diapers, washing all the clothes and bedding and blankets. I feel like screaming some days! i guess this is just a prelude of things to come! I am sure life will be insane with twins!

Diaper Bag

So there are two sites I have been watching like a hawk lately! The first one is and the other is Both of these sites list great bargains everyday for 55-65% off the original price. You need to be quick or somethings sell out in minutes!

Babysteals lists only once a day at 11:00 EST and 9:00 MST I believe but they have great deals when you come across something you love, dont hesitate! Just buy it.

Mamabargains will list something until its sold out and then relist more items all day like that. Its nice to find lots of bargains all day long!

So today I got a DwellStudio Diaper Tote on babysteals for $56.00. ORIGINAL PRICE WAS $160.00! What a great deal. I love their totes too. They are so big and cute! Here is a pic of the one I got. (I got the one to the far right called the charlotte)

I can't wait for it to get here so I can see it in person!

"See you in a hour"

Well, I got a email from my mom yesterday that my cribs came in that she got for me. I saw the same ones at BRU but then checked Walmart and they had the identical ones for cheaper so I thought "Okay, how bad could it be to deal with Walmart" so we ordered them from there. So......they came in and my mom did Site to Store delivery so we could go and pick them up there. Well she made the mistake of having them shipped to the most disgusting, ghetto store in the state of Ct. But we decided to brave this hellhole of a Walmart all for the babies! After making our way through the welfare mom's and their 28 kids they couldn't afford to have we got to the Site to Store pick up section. There is a sign that says "For Service Hit this button on the screen" so, I hit the button and Me, Mom and Gary started to wait.............and wait..........and wait. Every once in a while someone who barely spoke any English at all would come out of the back room and say "You being helped"? Then we tell them nope and they say "Me go get someone". That happened at least 10 times. Bunches of different people going to get other bunches of people but yet somehow we aren't getting helped?

So I keep pushing the button, finally some girl came out of the back room and acted stupid like she didn't know we were there. 40 minutes after we walked into walmart we walked out with our 2 cribs and 2 mattresses.

We got them home and openened them and what would you know, the first one had a hole right through the back of the crib.....this is my "You have got to be kidding me" moment of the day. So, we put it back in the truck and trecked to a different Walmart to return it (there was no way I was going back to the ghetto) and returned the thing. I ordered a new one last night. It should be here in a week. For now, we are just going to paint the room and get the one crib in there and patiently wait for the other to come in! Hopefully the new one wont be damaged!

Okay so I was getting ready for work this morning and noticed I had some red lines on my boobs. At first I thought maybe it was just lines from my bra I was wearing but after checking 20 times at work, they are still there. I asked Gary when I got home what he thought they were and he says definatly stretch marks. How in the heck did I manage to get stretch marks some place tht never grew?? I mean, they have grown a tad bit but honestly I am have always been tiny up top and nothing seems to have changed now that I am pregnant. My belly however that is gigantic doesn't have a stretch mark on it yet......go figure? Now I am super paranoid about the stretch mark thing, now that they have shown up out of no where some place that isn't even stretching??? Oh dear goodness help me now.

Welp here is my most recent belly picture. Man do I feel huge after seeing these pics!

So close but yet so far away.....

Well, I am going to be 22 weeks this week. I am so excited. Last weekend Dh and I cleared out the office, painted it and moved all the furniture in so that is our new spare room! Now we need to move our bedroom furniture into the old spare room and then clean out our old room. That will end up being the girls nursery. Mom ordered the cribs this week too so those should be coming in anytime now (Thanks Mom and Dad). All I need to do now is pick out a paint color!

So besides the rooms, everything else is going great. I feel great, I think I look pretty damn great and I love being pregnant at this point! Except for the heartburn, if I could never have that again that would be great! Lol. AND if my babies don't come out with TONS of hair like everyone is telling me I am going to be pissed!! Lol. I had no hair as a kid. I don't think I got hair until I was 3 and then I cut it all off with some scissors I found laying around so my girls need to have hair. I hate to end up with the little girls that look like little boys and wont have any hair to put clips or bows in!

Oh yeah and Dh said to me the other day that he thought it would be a good idea to take over handleing the money and paying the I am seriously not sure why he thinks he wants this job. He sucked at it when he had a few of his own bills to pay that's why I took it over before we got married and now all of a sudden he thinks he can handle a whole house full of bills and issues?? So this leads me to wonder if he thinks I spend too much money (which I do) and we have too much debt (which we do) and maybe he thinks he can "fix" it?? Lol! I have no idea? I keep asking him if that's why he says he wants to do it? Maybe he is trying to control my spending and he says no, but yet, for some reason I don't believe him?? Hm. So, I figure what the heck......I'm gonna let him take over. I need a break from worrying about the money anyway, but you know, I am still going to be checking up on him to make sure everything is paid! Lol.

Kung Pow Chicken kicked my butt.......

Okay I dont think it was kung pow chicken I ate, maybe it was mooshoo pork or egg foo yung?? Not sure anymore but it tasted pretty good going down and then within a few hours my stomach felt like hell! After finally dealing with my "stomach issues" I went to bed and woke up at 3:00am with the worst stomach cramps and horrible heartburn. I was literally begging for mercy after downing 3 tums and cursing that darn chinese food!!! Then on top of having all this heartburn the babies were moving around like maniacs all night and I could barely sleep a wink! OOh the fun of pregnancy!!!!

On the brighter side, Gary painted the spare room yesterday and all we have to do is move the bed in there and then move our bedroom into the old spare room and we will have the babies room all clear and ready to go for painting! Now if I could just pick a color in the sea of pink samples I have........

Time to get moving!!!

Well, FINALLY Gary and I are staying home this weekend to work on the babies room! The complicated thing is not only are we doing the babies room but we are moving our spare room into our office and moving our bedroom to our old spare that is moving 2 rooms and painting 2 rooms! This is gonna be fun!!! The hardest part for myself is going to be picking the paint colors! Lol. Other than that I am going to sit around and point fingers as much as possible! Lol. But it is going to be sooo exciting to finally have a place to put everything I got the girls so far. I have bags and bags full of stuff sitting on a dresser in my spare room and I can't take it anymore. I need organization!

Monthly OB appt......

Ugh, well, where to start! I guess with my weight would be good huh????? I weighted in at a whopping start weight was do the math! Lol. The doctor said I was right on track? Right on track for what? The plus sized section? My blood pressure was high too, 152/90. She said it was probaly a fluke, I have taken it twice already this morning and its fine now 122/78 was my last one so I am sure everything is fine with that. She asked me to track it for a few days and then fax the numbers over to her on Thursday so I will do that and hopefully everything will be fine. I am sure it will be. My uterus is all the way up to under my boobs. I forgot to ask her how far ahead I was measuring this time though as I was so shocked it was up that far already!

My next ultasound is on September 4th too and I can't wait to see the girls again. So exciting! I am feeling great too, no swelling, no fatigue, no morning sickness! I love this part of pregnancy. Hopefully everything keeps going this way and I continue to feel great!

"What kind of cake did you say this was"

That was the line that started one of the few fights Gary and I have had in our Marriage! Let me start by saying #1 I love my husband to death but #2. He is as dense as a rock wall sometimes! So, for the past 2 days I have been nagging Gary to do 2 things for me, one of them being put the table and chairs that are sitting in my breezeway downstairs in the storage area so I can have my breezeway back and the second being to sew the elastic back in one of the two pairs of black pants that I own that actually fit my huge ass right now! Yes you heard or shall I say *read* me right, Gary sews. I took Home Economics when I was in middle school, I even remember sewing some sort of demented stuffed animal for class but if you asked me now how to thread a sewing machine, I would certainly tell you to go fly a kite. My dear dear husband on the other hand took one look at this sewing machine when we got it and had it threaded and working in 5 mintues. He says all you need to do is "follow the arrows and instructions on the machine" Uh, all I can say. So, since he knows how to use this ridiculous machine and I have no clue, he is the sucker ( I mean sewer) in the family. Sooooooooooo, He told me he would sew the elastic back in for me and 2 days later it wasn't done.....I calmly went to my linen closet last night and grabbed one of our sewing for dummies kits and got out some black thread and a needle and proceeded to huff as loud as I could while I tried to get the thread threaded into that little ass needle hole. So, after he hears me huffing he turns to see what I am complaining about and says "What are you doing I said I would do that for you". So I nicely told him that I needed the pants for tomorrow and since it was already 10:30 at night I would just do it myself. So he took them from me and hooked up the machine and started pinning my pants. In the mean time I honed in on some cake he brought home from work with him and was asking him questions about the cake and he said some girl makes cakes once a week or something to that effect and that one was red velvet and it was really good then out of no where I sneezed and pee'd on myslef (yes one of the joys of being pregnant with twins) so I dont remember anything else of the alleged "cake conversation" since I was running to the bathroom trying not to pee puddles on myself at that point. So, I came back after fixing myself and dug into the cake. As I was eating I said " What kind of cake did you say this was and I thought you said this was good cake" and he looked at me and said "Well which one are you eating" and I said "The red one, why, there are a few different kinds in there" and he freaked.....he said "If I listened to him when he talked I would know there were TWO kinds of cakes in there and the other kind was the good kind"! Um, excuse me?????? If I listened to him??? Huh??? How the hell could I listen to him as I was trying not to pee all over myself?? I just dont understand, so I obviously screamed that at him and then of course in a rage I chucked my Red Velvet cake at him and my pants and my newly painted cabinets in the kitchen and stormed to the bedroom. The cake sucked anyway so it was no real loss to me and damn it felt good to throw something but seriously. He is freaking dense. Dense, dense, dense. He thinks the whole damn world revolves around his freaking cake explanation. So he came in later and apologized like a good husband and said he should be more aware of the things I am going through while being pregnant and blah blah blah but still, and he was sorry for being so insensitive (in my opinion the man is a little too sensitive these days) but still he's a idiot! But I love him just the same!

Snow Balls for Breakfast and Heartburn for lunch......

UGH......Why O' Why do I do this to myself?? For starters any "normal" pregnant girl with killer heartburn would take her zantac like a good little girl as soon as she wakes up. Nope, not this one. This one decides to down a cup of coffee, a apple turnover and a freaking package of snowballs for breakfast! Then I wonder why a hour later I have the most horrific heartburn on the planet?? Not to mention how horrible it was that I ate snowballs for breakfast! But seriously, there was no way in hell I was resisting the most delicious "snack" in the world! Everytime I see that fluffy pink marshmellow covered in coconut I just go nuts. I have no idea what comes over me but by the time I try to tell myself "no dont do it" they are both shoved in my mouth and gone! Ooh well. I am sure I am going to be sorry when I go for my OB appt next week and step on that scale but its a small (or maybe big) price to pay for that pink goodness!!!


So, I just can't stop ordering cloth diapers! Lol. I just keep looking for different kinds and just keep on ordering! My newest additions are Tiny Tush One size fits all with the snaps! Here are some pics of them. I think they are so cute. I can't wait for them to get here so I can check them out! Gary keeps begging me to stop ordering them until the babies get here but there isn't a shot in hell of that happening!

I also got one Bum Genius one size fits all with Velcro (it was on clearance)I like the colors, but am not sure how I am going to feel about the Velcro. I guess I will see after I use it for a bit?

So besides my cloth diaper obsession, everything seems to be going good. The babies are moving up a storm and kick so hard I can see them from the outside. I just love laying around feeling them move. It is so strange that I have two little babies in me! I have been doing lots of clothes shopping for them too and I know what everyone is going to say...."stop buying clothes, everyone is going to get you clothes" but I seriously can't help myself! I keep on finding the cutest things and just have to buy them!!!

Oh yeah and the names are officially: Gillian Adair and Finley Hope. There is no going back now, I already ordered their names for over their cribs!

Okay its been a while since I updated my belly pic so here you go! I feel gigantic and am freaked out that I am actually going to probably double in size before this is done!!! Oh the fun!
