So now that we are about to have THREE children I am trying super hard to be better organized. The more kids you have the more stuff we seem to accumulate. Also I want storage for the things to keep out of the younger two's reach.

So for starters I want this for our entry..
It is a shoe rack.. I know crazy right.. it's from IKEA!! Here is what it looks like inside..
I love it. Gabbie is constantly getting into the shoes & since I am BIG on NOT SHOES in the house this would be nice to have right when we walk in.

Since we don't have much closet storage here for linens I have to be creative with how I will store most stuff. I have sheets under our bed ugh & I don't like it cause I think of all the dust that is under there so if I could do this which looks simple enough in our bathroom to put our towels I would have room in our closet for the sheets.

I found this idea on Pinterest.. on of the many reason's I love this site.. it helps me find creative ideas.

For the kids are supplies..
I love jars.. I found this idea on Pinterest too!

I love this filing cabinet. Ours is so small & FULL now so this would be perfect!!
again found on Pinterest.

Those are just a few of the things I would love to have & I am working on getting or creating :)

Bye Bye First Trimester

So today is the last day of my first trimester YAY!! I have been feeling a LOT better {Knock on Wood} but I have also still have my days of not feeling so well. But I am excited that this pregnancy is going by so quickly or so it seems. So far I have gained more weight then I would have liked more then I gained all together with Shiloh but I only gained 13 with her. I am just glad I can eat. I can still wear most of my regular clothes still but I really would like to get some long leggings from Old Navy I have just been slacking LOL
So far with this pregnancy I have noticed blotches on my skin {face mostly} that are darker then other areas. I haven't been quite as sick as I was with the girls.. man I am ALWAYS EXHAUSTED! Other then that I can eat pretty much anything. Ground anything is nasty to me.. but I can eat it as long as I don't look at it LOL I can't have soda or anything high in sugar it makes me feel horrible. I did have that with the girls but I never had issues with soda like do this time. But other then that things are good.  Her are my 12 week belly shots!!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Life In Oregon

So we are pretty much all settled in to our new place here in Oregon. I love being back here. It's just beautiful. Where we live is so much nicer then the town we lived in while in Washington. The air smells cleaner & the people are more on our level HA! I love having my besties close & my sister in law & nephew & niece 20 minutes away. Quality of life here I can already tell is going to be amazing!

Stephen's new America's Tires Store is coming together & I love to see him excited about this new adventure. It's like a little kid in a candy store. He can't wait for his grand opening on October 21st & 22nd. I am going to make some cupcakes & bring the girls to the store both days to show support & to be apart of all the excitement too. My brother in law & sister in law are also going to come down from Seattle & Sean {my brother in law} is going to help with the opening which is awesome!!

I decided to put the girls in the same room here, so we could have a playroom for all the toys & so far its been a fight still to get Shiloh to sleep in HER BED, but we have gotten her to fall asleep in there but she still gets up in the middle of the night & cries to come in our room or just crawls in our bed. So it's still a work in progress.. at least Gabbie sleeps in her bed. Now if I could get her to sleep through the night we would be set.

Shiloh is adjusting well. She loves to tell everyone we are in Oregon, which is pretty cute. She loves having her cousins close by & friends to see more often. We found a school to put her in after the first of the year. Its very close to our house & the prices compared to her school in Washington are great & it seems like happy place to be. Shiloh had her 3 year check up on the 4th & she is doing great. She is healthy as can be. I had both girls get their flu shots & Shiloh didn't even cry.. well a fake cry for like a sec & then she was done & asking for her sticker.

Shiloh on her 3rd Birthday
Gabbie too is doing great she is one happy girl. She has found her vocals now & loves to scream at everything.. she thinks its funny HA! She has 4 teeth to front ones on the bottom & to fangs on on top which I think is so funny.. I need to make her a vampire for Halloween. She is walking along the couch like crazy  can even stand for a second without holding onto anything. She does so big & laughs at her self. She nods yes ALL the time & she is drinking from a sippy cup most of the time. She eats EVERYTHING & can pick up her food & feed her self now which is nice. She thinks all food is her food & well yell at you until you share. She is growing so fast & is one healthy girl.

Labor Day Weekend

I am 12 weeks pregnant now. I will be taking some belly shots sometime between now & Sunday to post but I have been sick so I haven't wanted any pictures of me. I am not sure if I have a head cold or if it is allergies but what ever it is is not fun. Tylenol isn't helping & I have had a pounding headache which makes everything worse. But I will live. I have my next doctor's appointment on Nov. 2nd & our ultra sound on Dec. 5th. I really want to do the gender reveal party but it all depends on how busy my husband is. So we will see but I will keep you posted on baby #3.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
