Easter Weekend 2015

This past weekend was such a beautiful  Easter weekend- start to finish!!!  The weather was perfect here in Virginia and our family was over, great message at church and I am feeling SOOOO much better now!!! Spring is in the air!!!!  

We started the weekend by taking Chloe to see the Easter Bunny at the mall. Nothing like the last minute right?!?!  But she was so happy to see him, and for the first time we got a picture where she wasn't screaming!!!  

She just looks so grown up!!!!  My baby is  growing to such a big girl as she says!  After that we had a nice evening with friends, playing with their children and  eating Easter eggs and candy!!!  What could be better!!?!?

The Easter bunny of course came to see my little angel and she was so thrilled with the little things she received in her basket!!!  Mostly books and some figurines of her all time favorite cartoon called "Paw Patrol"!!!  She is obsessed with that show and we finally were able to find some merchandise at Target of the characters and she could not have been more happy!!!

We then went to church with my Mom and it was such a wonderful message and time spent worshiping the Lord! After church we changed clothes and mom gave Chloe her Easter basket filled with goodies from her!!!  And you guessed it, more Paw Patrol things were to be had!!!  MiMi was the hero for sure!  Here is a picture of the two of them before she dug into that basket!!!

Then Daddy and Chloe went out to the backyard to play and Mom and I began tackling the painting of the nursery.  One wall (the accent wall) we are painting in the same stripped pattern that is on the nursery bedding. We already went to Home Depot and got the light blue, dark blue and olive green paint to do the stripes. But the measuring and taping off of the lines is what was brutal!!!!

We finally had to recruit Sweetness to come help as well, because it really was a 3 person job. Someone had to hold the laser exactly perfect while the other two guided the tape down the perfect line.  I can not tell you how painstakingly tedious this was....... And after about 4 hours of doing it, this is how far we got on the wall, about 1/2 way done taping, haven't even gotten to the fun painting part yet !!!

I know it looks crazy in this picture but it's really going to be beautiful when it's done. So we will continue to work on it little by little each night this week and  I will keep posting pics of our progress
The pattern that we are mimicking looks like this, and hopefully the wall will look something very close when we get done!!!

The stripes are the inside pattern on the bumper pads and the elephants are the crib sheet. So here is a sneek peak of his nursery theme!!  Lol. 

Anyway, things are coming right along on all fronts really. I'm starting to get really excited about Jacob's arrival now that I am feeling somewhat human again.  I am weaning myself off the Zof.ran pump starting today because I have been able to eat and drink most anything I want and no vomiting. Still have bad bouts of nausea but I am going to try to push through those, and hopefully get my PICC line removed by this Friday!!!  

And today I started my new job. I am still doing pharmaceutical sales just with a new company. The Lord is just so amazing in His perfect timing in all things!!  It was probably a good thing I didn't have a job during the first trimester as I wouldn't have been able to work with as sick as I was, and now that I am feeling better, I can get out there and make some money to buy my little miracle all the pretties I want him to have and help Sweetness with the bills!!! 

Today began 1 week of home study, and then I fly to the home office on Sunday for 4 days of training there.  And then I come home and hit the ground running.  I am very excited about this company and the growth potential they have expressed when hiring me. They are wanting me to move up and advance as they continue to expand and grow as well and I love that!!!

Well that's all the update for now!!  Easter is over and spring is officially here!!!  Yippeeeee!!!!  Have a blessed week everyone!!!
