My Two Peanuts are Here!

My little boys are here! They are the reason I have been missing the last few days. Hunter and Connor were born Wednesday, June 26th. They are perfect little boys. Connor came out first and weighed 4 pounds 14 ounces and was 17 1/4 inches long. Hunter was born two minutes later and was 5 pounds 7 ounces and 17 3/4 inches long.

The surgery went great, and recovery is going much better than my first time. I am already at home but my little peanuts are in the NICU for a few days. They are doing wonderful but just need a little help with learning how to eat and keep their body temperatures up. Hunter also needs a little respiratory help as well. They also are on some antibiotics. They are such little cuties! I was able to try breastfeeding Connor last night and he did pretty good. It is too tiring for him to try for more than 5 minutes but we will keep working at it each day.

So that's what I've been doing these last couple of days! Little man has not met his brothers yet and I'm sure he doesn't really know what's going on, but he will meet them soon. It's nice to be home with him, I have missed him while I was in the hospital. Now to catch up on some of what I missed this past week...Hope you all are having a great weekend!

What I LOVE Wednesdays (Baby Edition)

This week I'm doing a baby edition of What I LOVE. I'm sure some of you who have been following along will know why. Today is the BIG DAY! C-section is scheduled at noon, I wish it was sooner so I could get it over with. I'm super excited to meet my two little boys! I'm also really nervous about the surgery. If you are following me on Twitter or Facebook, I will be updating on how everything went later on! 

1. Nursery Wall Art // 2. Pacifier Pod // 3. Summer Infant SwaddleMe // 4. Star Wars Onesie
5. Fisher Price Space Saver High Chair // 6. Hand Stamped Initial Necklace

1. This nursery wall art is adorable. I would love to make something similar. The quote is very sweet. My nursery is already decorated, however, so I won't be making this anytime soon. 

2. I've never seen this before I found it today. It's a very good idea. The pacifiers always get lost inside the bag for me. If I had a fancy diaper bag like that, I'd probably get one. I'm using a backpack though, it's much easier to carry when you have 3 babies to carry as well. 

3. I love these swaddlers. We used them with little man when he was first born and we are going to use them again with these two. It's much easier than trying to keep a blanket wrapped up around them. 

4. I know this is a little girl's onesie, but it's so cute! I should find something similar for little boys. We have so many onesies though, I don't think we need any more! 

5. We also use these space saver chairs and they are great. It's much better than having 3 extra high chairs in the kitchen. We had to get a bigger table set this summer because we didn't have enough chairs for everyone. Now we have 6 chairs and 3 will be taken up by these high chairs!

6. I want to get something like this for my kids. This one only comes with the two initials, so it wouldn't work for me, but it's very cute. I'm pretty picky about jewelry that I like, so its hard for me to find stuff that I would pay money for. I do really like this one though!

I hope you all have a great week! Keep an eye out for an update on the new babies! I'm not sure exactly when I will be getting home from the hospital, hopefully it will only be a couple of days. Please pray that everything goes smoothly for us today!

How To: Latch Board for Toddlers

 I've had this idea for awhile now, to make little man a latch/sensory board. I've seen many different ones on Pinterest, so I decided to just make it this weekend. It would also give me something to do while I wait for Wednesday to get here. 

It was more expensive than I expected it to be, but little man will love it. He already wanted to try it out while I was working on it. We are going to be mounting it on the wall in the hallway for him to play with. I couldn't find too many different latches, so I added a mirror and a felt board to fill in some of the empty space. 

I spray painted the board first and then had my husband screw everything in place. I then added the letters for his name on top and used glued the felt board and mirror on. I put little reflective buttons on the edges for decoration as well. For now I just cut out simple felt shapes, but later on I will probably make some other felt items as well. 

I think little man will really enjoy playing with it once we get it up on the wall. Hopefully we can do that in the next couple of days here. So far the mirror and the wheel are his favorite parts.

36 Weeks Pregnant with Twins! (Final Update)

I can't believe it! I made it to 36 weeks and only 3 more days to go! Wednesday is the big day for us, sadly it is not scheduled until noon, so I will have the whole morning to be nervous. Hopefully it doesn't get pushed back any further. 

The babies are still finding room to flip around. Baby A keeps going from head down to breech and back again. I had my last BPP on Friday and was told that both of them have quite a bit of hair! I  am so excited and curious to see what they look like and how big they will be! 

Twins at 36 Weeks

There is a supermoon today, the biggest "supermoon" of 2013, and they say that the full moon makes full-term pregnant women go into labor. What is a supermoon? Find out here! Are there really more babies born during a full moon? I have no idea, but I'm hoping these babies wait until Wednesday. The good news is, I'm pretty sure they will be waiting patiently. 

It still seems a little crazy to me that there are two babies in there. Since it's been two weeks since I took pictures, I took some more for this week. The last pictures before having them! These last few days are going to slow...but my mom and sisters will be coming up tomorrow so that should help. They will be watching little man while I'm in the hospital. This will be a rough week for him.

 I hope you all are having a great weekend!

How to Add Buttons to Your Blog + Free Social Media Buttons!

I've looked at a lot of free social media icons available and it seems like a lot of them are very similar. So I thought I'd try designing some that might be slightly different. I love the way these ones turned out! I used some of the Pantone Summer 2013 Colors as they are very bright and cheerful. There are 6 colors with 10 icons in each set: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Etsy, Linked In, RSS, Tumblr, Google+, Instagram and Bloglovin'.

Download the buttons at these links: 

If you are not familiar with adding buttons to your blog, this is how I do it: (I am using Blogger so I do not know how to add them to a Wordpress blog, although it is probably similar)

The first thing you need to do is upload all your images to a photo hosting site such as Photobucket. That's the one that I use. Next go to your blog dashboard > Layout > Add Gadget > HTML/Javascript.

Use this code to add each button that you want to use:
<a href="WebsiteAddressHere"><img src="ImageAddressHere" width="Width" height="Height"></a>

The buttons I made are 75px, if you want to leave them that size you can leave out the width and height, if you want to make them smaller you can put in the pixel size in those areas. 

Copy the direct link for your image from Photobucket and paste it into the "ImageAddressHere" area.

Change the "WebsiteAddressHere" to the URL for your account on that site. For example this is what my Twitter Button would look like:

<a href=""><img src=""></a>

Do the same thing for each button you want to add, all on the same gadget.

I hope this is clear, if you have any questions feel free to ask me in the comments or by email and I will try to help! If you do end up using my social media buttons on your blog you should let me know so I can check them out in action! I will probably be making more eventually so keep an eye out for new ones in the future. Hope you all are having a lovely start to your weekend!

What I LOVE This Week (Geek Edition)

This week I am doing a geek edition of thing I LOVE! You might already know this, but I am slightly geeky. Not nerdy, just geeky...there's a bit of a difference. 

nerd: a foolish or contemptible person who lacks social skills or is boringly studious.

geek: a person with an eccentric devotion to a particular interest.

After looking up the definitions, I am definitely going with geek over nerd! So check out these awesome and geeky things that I love:

1. Boba Fett KitchenAid Mixer I've seen a lot of custom paint jobs on the KitchenAid mixer, but this one is one of the coolest. I don't even have a mixer, it's something on my wish list, but if I did it would be awesome to paint it with a custom design!

2. Superhero Wall Art I love superheroes! I was seriously considering decorating my living room with something similar and it would have been fantastic. Someday I still might do that because now I am reconsidering. Good thing I haven't really done much to decorate yet, we've been here a year now but I've been putting it off. 

3. I Still Believe in 398.2 Necklace Charm I just found this today and its so cute! 398.2 is the fairy tale section of the Dewey Decimal System. It combines two of my favorite things: books and fairy tales! I've loved all fairy tales ever since I was little. 

4. Leather Quote Cuffs These are really nice bracelets, I would love to get one. Mainly I like them because I love the Tolkien quote. I've been a big Tolkien fan since I was little as well. My mother used to read us these books (and many others) every afternoon. 

5. Legendary Maternity Set I've had a maternity or baby item on this list every weeks so far. But this is pretty cute, I had to include it. I love the show How I Met Your Mother, although the last season I thought it was getting a little old, but overall its a great show. This would be a perfect gift for someone who enjoys the show. 

6. Mad Tea Party Pocket Watch Necklace I absolutely love Alice in Wonderland. I've been working on an Alice in Wonderland illustration for awhile. It isn't getting very far because I've been putting it off, but someday I will finish it! Seems like that happens with a lot of my projects.

So now you know a few of my interests that I have an eccentric devotion to. What about you? How many of you are also geeks?

Tater Tot Taco Bake

Tater tot taco bake is kind of a mouthful to say, isn't it? It is one of my favorite casseroles to make, however. It's delicious and easy to make! Almost every recipe I like is easy to make, that's usually why I like them. This dish combines tater tots into a Mexican style casserole that tastes very yummy. There's also lots of cheese, cheese always makes everything taste good!

Tater Tot Taco Bake (Recipe adapted from Blog Chef)

Here is what you will need to make this taco bake:
  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • 1 teaspoon Minced Garlic
  • 1 package Taco Seasoning
  • 1 can Whole Kernel Corn (drained)
  • 1 can Black Beans (drained)
  • 16 ounces Shredded Mexican Cheese Blend
  • 32 ounce package Frozen Tater Tots
  • 19 ounce can Enchilada Sauce

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray.

2. Brown ground beef and minced garlic in a medium saucepan. Drain off excess grease. Add taco seasoning, corn and black beans. Cook until heated through.

3. In a large bowl, combine beef mixture, tater tots (I use probably about 3/4 of the package) and 3/4 of the cheese. Stir together to combine.

4. Pour about 1/3 of the enchilada sauce into the bottom of the prepared 9x13 pan. Add the tater tot mixture to the baking dish. Pour the remaining enchilada sauce over the tater tots.

5. Bake for 40 minutes. In the last 10 minutes of baking add the remaining cheese to the top of the casserole. Some additional toppings you might want to add: green chilies, onion, black olives, sour cream or salsa.

One Year Ago Today...(Part One)

My little boy is officially one years old today! It's hard to believe how fast the year has gone.  So since I have never written down what happened when he was born, I figured today was the perfect time to do it. Maybe I should try to write it a little sooner for my next babies! 

Last year Father's Day was on the 17th, little man turned out to be a great Father's Day gift for my husband. His actual due date was June 11th, so he was almost a whole week late. I was scheduled to be induced on the 18th since it didn't look like he wanted to come out at all. So I didn't really expect anything to happen before the induction.

Sunday morning I was up early while my husband slept in. I have always been a morning person and he doesn't like to wake up if he doesn't have to. I should have been sleeping in back then when I had the chance! So I was downstairs on my computer playing World of Warcraft. Yes I am a huge geek and I (used to) love that game. It's hard to play anymore and I haven't in a long time. 

So there I was doing a dungeon group and we just finished killing the final boss. And my water breaks! Perfect timing, right!? I thought so. I called the hospital and told them what happened. They of course told me to come in. I woke up my husband to tell him and he jumped up out of bed. Probably the fastest I've ever seen him wake up. I took a shower before leaving since I had been too lazy to take one earlier, and we drove to the hospital. We got there about 11am.

Nothing was happening. They checked to make sure it was really my water breaking and it was. They said there was meconium in it, which could be a sign of fetal distress since he might have breathed some of it into his lungs. We got all checked into the hospital and they decided to give me pitocin to try to get things moving. We walked around the hallways and still nothing was happening. They upped the dose and finally I started having contractions. 

They got pretty bad really fast and I told them I wanted an epidural. They got that all set up and still nothing was really progressing. I was only at 4cm and little man was in distress, his heart rate was very low. The doctor on call had been monitoring everything from home, but she came in and told me it was best if we do a c-section. This was extremely scary for me, I did not want to be cut open. But I agreed with her and said we should do that. As soon as I agreed they gave my husband scrubs to put on and wheeled me back to the operating room.

I was shaking so badly from the epidural, I thought my muscles in my shoulders were going to be really sore afterwards because they hurt so bad. Turns out they didn't hurt at all later on. They got little man out and he was fine but they didn't even let me see him. He was born at 6:45pm. I'm not sure what time they brought him to my room but I don't think it was very long. Finally I got to hold my precious little boy! 

Everything seemed to be going fine with recovery that evening and the next day. I was breastfeeding my little guy and that was going great. They let me eat something the next day (Monday) for lunch. That evening things started to get worse. I had developed an awful ileus, which is a bowel obstruction caused from the surgery. My abdomen was filled up with gas and extremely distended. It was bigger than I had been with my little boy inside. (This is where all my stretch marks came from) I couldn't move without help those first couple of days after it got bad. I was about to be released on Tuesday morning but I ended up staying nine days in the hospital. 

I had to have a NG tube to get rid of all the bile in my stomach and couldn't eat the entire week at all. They didn't even want me drinking water, I could only chew on ice chips. This was awful because I was really thirsty from the pain medication. I got x-rays every day to see what was going on and they almost had to do another surgery but thankfully it finally started to get better. Oh and let me say, getting that NG tube was the most extremely awful thing that has ever happened to me. They couldn't get it in, there is something weird in my nose and it hurt so bad. I threw up green bile everywhere when they first stuck it down my throat and they pulled it back out. They had to call someone else to come in and she just shoved it down my nose.

Thankfully I was still able to breastfeed my little boy this whole time, although it was hard. He stayed with me in the hospital even though they discharged him right away. He was a perfect little baby weighing 8 pounds 7 ounces and 21 inches long. By the time we left the hospital he was already out of newborn size diapers and into size 1's. Oh I forgot to say that during this time my incision also got infected and started leaking everywhere and they had to open it up again to drain it. That was pretty minor though.

We finally got to go home! Can you believe I hadn't even changed a diaper on my little boy that whole time?! My dear husband had changed them all up to that point because it was really hard for me to move around. It was so great to finally be home, I hate staying in the hospital! That was not the end of the story, however. Sadly more complications came up....but I better save that for later, this post is getting rather long already! I love my little man so much and it was all worth it. I just really hope everything goes much more smoothly this next time. (Keep an eye out for part two if you want to know what happened next).

Happy Birthday Little Man! I love you very much!

35 Weeks Pregnant with Twins (An Update)

Here we are only one week away from the big day! Well, technically its one week and 3 days but it sounds better to just call it one week. Let me just say, things are not very fun at all. These babies are the size of honeydew melons this week. says they should be about 5 1/4 pounds and 18 inches long. It is a mystery how big they actually are until they come out of course, but still, that's probably about 10 pounds of baby in there! Here's a picture of a honeydew melon to see the size. (That's not me in the picture, however).

I had a dream last week that the babies were going to be born on the 16th (today) but that's probably just because my little boy was born on Father's Day last year. Wouldn't that be weird if these boys came on Father's Day this year?! I've been having lots of contractions and cramps so I guess you never know. They might still try to come out this week. After all, 35 weeks is the average for twin pregnancies. 

Speaking of my little man, tomorrow is his first birthday! I will be posting his birth story so stay tuned for that! I know you don't want to miss it. Here are some pictures from his first trip to the playground. Isn't he a cutie!?

Doesn't all this talk of melons make you hungry? Look how delicious they look! Hope you all have a great weekend and all the fathers and grandfathers have a wonderful Father's Day today!

DIY Mini Terrarium in a Mug (Inspired by Miracle-Gro's Gro Project)

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

DIY Mini Terrarium

I've always loved gardening but lately I haven't been able to do anything with gardens or plants. We moved into our house last summer and I was pregnant with little man, now this summer I'm pregnant again. Next year I plan on making a small garden in the back. For now though I have to get by with potted plants. 

A fun and easy project I made today is a mini terrarium. I got the idea from Miracle-Gro's The Gro Project. They are working to create fun projects that show gardening can be easy and enjoyable. Check out their fun garden projects on Pinterest to see some more great ideas!

For indoor and potted plants, Moisture Control Potting Mix works great. That is what I used in my project today. You can also use Shake’n Feed All Purpose Plant Food to help your indoor plants grow. If you have a bigger, outdoor area to take care of try using LiquaFeed All Purpose Plant Food Advance Starter Kit.

Mini Terrarium in a Mug

DIY Mini Terrarium

Here is what you will need:

  • Miracle-Gro's Moisture Control Potting Mix
  • Glass Mug
  • Handful of small rocks
  • 1 or 2 small succulent plants
  • Spoon 

1. Place the rocks in the bottom of the mug and fill half-way with potting mix.

2. Use the spoon to dig holes that the plants will fit into. Place the plants in the mug and cover the roots with potting mix so that they are snugly planted. 

This would make a special gift that is easy to make. I am going to keep mine because it is the first houseplant I have had in years. I blame the cats for that. I just hope I can keep them away from this one!  Make sure you check out Miracle-Gro Online to find more gardening tips and advice.

What to Pack in Your Hospital Bag for a C-Section

What to Pack in Your Hospital Bag for a C-Section
When I went to the hospital to have my first little guy, I wasn't expecting to have a c-section. I also didn't expect to stay for nine days. Since we live very close to the hospital it's not a very big deal if I forget to bring something because my husband can always bring it to me from home. I would like to be better prepared this time, however. So here are my thoughts on what to pack in your hospital bag for a c-section. Let me know if I am missing something important!

Packing for a c-section really isn't that much different than for a vaginal birth, the main difference is you will be staying a little longer. Instead of the 24-48 hours you can expect to stay 2-4 days. I'm hoping for the minimum because I absolutely hate staying in the hospital, especially this time when I have to be away from little man. I've had my bag packed for a few weeks now and this is what I have in it:

(Electronics) Can you tell what must be most important to me since its the first item on the list! I don't know about you, but I would be lost if I didn't have my cell phone at least. I also need to have my camera with me, after all that's one of the reasons we bought it. I'm bringing my iPad as well because I'm sure there will be down time. Don't forget to bring chargers for everything, you wouldn't want the camera to die on you! I tried to bring a book last time, but there's no way I can concentrate that much on reading.

(Comfy Clothing) Last time I just wore the hospital gown the entire time, but I want to wear normal clothes as soon as possible this time! So I'm bringing 3-4 yoga/comfy pants, 3-4 nursing tank tops, a robe, nursing bras and sandals. I'm bringing my own underwear as well but I'm not sure if I will use it or not. I'll probably just wear the hospital gowns for pajamas but you could bring those too. They will have socks there for you to use and probably a robe as well if you don't want to bring your own.

(Toiletries) Shampoo/Toothbrush/Toothpaste/Hairbrush/Makeup/Deodorant/Perfume/Face Wash/Razor/Chapstick/Hair Ties...oh and lotion, last time those compression boots they make you wear made my legs really itchy. I'm bringing my own towel this time too. You don't have to because they have towels there, but they are really small. Make sure you have shower shoes to wear. 

(Stuff For the Babies) I am bringing an outfit for them to wear home. I think I packed two for each since I couldn't make up my mind. Some hats I bought so they didn't have to wear the same ones and we can tell them apart easier. A couple receiving blankets to put over them in the car seats. Of course you will need to bring the car seats as well, you won't need them until the babies are going home. Bring some socks for them to wear home or something to cover their feet.

(Other Random Stuff You Might Want) Your own pillow with a case that isn't white on it so it doesn't get mixed up with theirs. I'm not bringing this though, I thought the hospital ones were fine. Nursing pillow. This one I am bringing with me. Last time I didn't have it and it probably would have helped, using regular pillows doesn't work that great. So I have a giant twin nursing pillow to use, I hope it works. Abdominal binder unless your hospital will be providing you with one. It will help with the pain and with holding everything together. An extra bag to bring stuff home in because you will probably go home with more things than you came with. The nurses gave us all the extra diapers and things like that because you are already paying for them once they are opened anyways.

So that's everything I'm bringing with me this time. I hope I remembered everything important. It's strange but I'm bringing more this second time than I did the first. Usually its the other way around. I have this thing where I hate over packing and try to bring the minimum amount of stuff when I go somewhere, which usually means I forget something important and run out of clothes. I'm getting better about that though! 

If you missed my post on what I wish I knew before my c-section, you should check it out here. Also keep an eye out this week for little man's birth story. He will be turning one on Monday and I have yet to actually type it out. My c-section is only 10 days away, can't wait to meet my little boys!

Nursery Printables

Something I've been wanting to do for awhile now is design some prints to put up in our nursery. I've had ideas in my head but never actually sat down to do them. Now that the little peanuts are almost here (less than two weeks!) I decided I should do it now or I might put it off for another year again!

So I made a birth announcement print for little man, but of course I have to wait to finish the details on the twins' still. I also made a fourth print with a cute quote on it about little boys. That way I can hang them in a group of 4 frames. I included a link to the quote printable at the end of the post if anyone wants to use it! I usually bring my files to Office Max to get printed. I did that with my Father's Day one last week and it was only $0.52 to print. I'd rather pay that than use my ink jet printer at home, I think it looks much better.

Birth Announcement Subway Print

Little Boys Quote Printable

I've always loved this quote, I think its so cute. Good thing we are having all boys, right?! I can't wait till they get here! If you are looking for a last-minute Father's Day gift, you can check out my free printable. I framed mine and it will make a lovely gift. Also, here is the link to download the Little Boys Quote Printable if you are interested.

What I LOVE This Week

Six Things to LOVE This Week

Here are some of the things I love this week! It's so much fun to come up with this list. Now that I found out I could make collages on PicMonkey, it makes it even more fun! Check out this week's favorites:

Six Things to LOVE This Week

1. Paper Flowers on Etsy These flowers are so delicate and pretty. I love that they are made out of old book pages. It's such a great idea. I don't even know what I would use them for if I had them, but I know I like them!

2. Hilarious Onesie This onesie is the best. I would absolutely love to get it for my boys. It cracks me up every time I see it. "I'd flex but I like this onesie" I know, I know...I'm so lame, but I don't care!

3. My Quote for the Week This has been my Motto for not only this week but the last few weeks. If possible I nap during my little man's two naps every day. Unless I have stuff to do, but lately napping seems more important than getting things done.

4. Nikon 1 Camera I got this camera as a (very) early birthday/Christmas present this year because we want to use it for pictures of the babies when they get here. It's awesome, I love it. I have an older DSLR Nikon which still works great, but for some reason I can't find the charger anywhere. So I had been just using my iPhone all the time, which also works pretty good, but using an actual camera just seems to produce much better pictures.

5. Yoga Pants from Old Navy So lately I don't have many clothes to wear. I miss my normal clothes! The only thing that's comfortable to wear is yoga pants, unless I absolutely have to wear jeans I'm always going to go for comfort right now.

6. Double Chocolate Mousse Cupcakes from Lady Behind the Curtain Don't these cupcakes look delicious!? I'm also drawn to bright colors, so that makes them look even better to me. I bet they taste just as good as they look. Maybe I can make some this week although I doubt if mine would look as great as hers!
