What I'm Loving Wednesday

I am linking up with Jamie on this gloomy Wednesday for WILW!

I'm loving all the sweet snuggles the twins and I have been getting in this rainy weather from my sweet Lib!
Straight out of the bath snuggles!

I'm loving my hardwood floors! Here are the best before and afters I have right now.
AFTER! (from Tiffany's shower)

I'm loving that we have the babies names picked out! We pretty much always have but we changed a middle name and its official now! YAY!

I'm loving all the encouragement my sister has given me this week! She is always so encouraging thats just her, but this week she has really been a source of encouragement straight from the Lord! It just reminds me to never take an opportunity for granted where I might be able to do the same thing for someone else!

I'm loving that I finally duplicated the Mila Kunis makeup I loved from the Oscars! This is the best picture of it and it was not planned to show the "look" so just look at the eyes. I took the picture at the end of my day so my lipstick is nonexsistent! Mila's makeup artist used Lancome products on her I duplicate her look using all Mary Kay so I purchased no products for this look!

I'm loving these cutie pies!
AND their Daddy!
Happy Wednesday! I'm hoping for some sunshine tomorrow!

Friday's Favorites

I am linking up today with my beautiful, bestie and SIL Lyndsie for one of my favorite topics!

In my perfect world I would probably spend all my money on my children's clothes and decorating our home since these are two of my favorite things! haha! I do everything on a budget which means my house projects are never "done". Our home is always a work in progress but I kinda love that because I love decorating and design so much! When our twins arrive this summer we will have 5 children and 3 bedrooms so the babies will be in with Mommy and Daddy for as long as possible! I have lots of ideas for our nursery and I know just how I want it to look! Since we really aren't working on the nursery just yet because that's the girls room for now, here is a super "sneak peak" of what the room will look like when the time comes for the babies to move to their own room.

Benjamin Moore Alexandria Beige

This is a Ralph Lauren sheet set that I found and LOVE! I hope to turn this material into part of the bedding! Oh if I only knew how to sew....So that's my work in progress!

Have a relaxing and wonderful weekend! I am so looking forward to our weekend!

Tiffany's Bridal Shower!

This past Saturday, Kendyl and I hosted a bridal shower for my future sister in law Tiffany! Kendyl, is one of Tiffany's bridesmaids and my girls are her flower girls!

Beautiful Kendyl making coffee punch!
We had all desserts! Yum!
The bride to be opening gifts!
Tiffany and her Mom!
Tiffany with her bridesmaids except for Amy.
Twenty seven weeks with the twins! Following the shower I sat with my feet up for a full day! My legs were so swollen. My feet only got swollen one time during Thanksgiving weekend when I was pregnant with Libby. I didn't experience swelling with any of my other pregnancies. So the huge swollen legs, ankles and feet were new to me. Regardless of the swelling I'm so glad Kendyl and I were able to host a shower for Tiffany! I can't wait for the wedding! Uncle Kevin and Aunt Tiffany's wedding will be the twins first outing! So excited!

Oh yeah....YAY IT'S SPRING! Warm weather and weddings just make me happy!

What I'm Loving Wednesday!

Tonight I'm linking up with Jamie for WILW!!!

First off I'm LOVING the new camera my Nana and Bethany got me for my shower gift! Talk about totally blown away! I have wanted one for a really long time now! I especially wanted a new camera before the babies came! Any decent pictures on the blog are always from someone elses camera. So I finally have pictures worthy of blogging!!!!

I'm LOVING this week so much more than last!!! Our hard wood floors were being installed so we were stuck at a hotel for three day because we all got sick and didn't want to pass our germs onto my sister and her family who we were supposed to stay with. It was a rough, cooped up three days but we made some memories! haha! Brian kept saying one day we will look back on all this and laugh! We made it through, and tried to make the most of it despite our circumstances! I am so glad to be back home!
The girls got to sleep in the same bed for the first time! They were LOVING that!

I'm LOVING that my sweet friend Kendyl and I are hosting a bridal shower Saturday for my future sister in law Tiffany! I have lots of cleaning and getting ready to do but I love to host showers!

I'm LOVING that yesterday I had another sonogram and got to see my babies! We could see that our little boys eyes were open and that both babies have hair! AMAZING! I loved every second of seeing them on that tiny screen! Both babies are almost 3 lbs each! PTL!

I'm LOVING that tonight my husband brought home Moe's for supper! Our kids love Moe's!

I'm LOVING that yesterday I finished the big kids outfits to wear to the hospital to see their brother and sister! Yes, I am a planner like that! Their outfits are all pink and turquoise!

I'm LOVING my husband who has been working so hard to get our home ready for our babies!

I'm LOVING these cute little helpers!

Have a wonderful Wednesday evening!

Showers of Blessings!

Sunday, my amazing sister and some very sweet friends and family hosted a baby shower for me and the twins at my sisters home! We were truly blessed with some amazing supplies for the babies! Diapers, wipes and giftcards galore! SO BLESSED!
I wanted to say a really big THANK YOU to Bethany! She has always put others needs before herself and even though she is my sister she is one of the most selfless people I have ever known! She loves the Lord and it is so evident in everything she does! So Beth thank you again for blessing me and the babies! I love you more than words can say! This shower was such an act of love from all my family and friends! I am truly blessed to have each of you in my life!

My friend Brysty made the adorable cake it was soooo good! In fact I just ate a left over piece while typing this post!! haha!
My little helper with all the presents!

I wish I had a better picture with everyone in it!

Me my Nana, Bethany, Holland Jane and Rinna Beth
Such a precious time!

Celebrating Amy!

Today we are celebrating Brian's wonderful sister Amy's birthday!

This is one of my favorite pictures from our wedding day! Scanned straight out of our wedding album. (Ten years ago we didn't get a CD of our wedding we got an album.)

Today we celebrate your beautiful life! You were just a little girl when we met and now you are a beautiful young woman! You are a light in the darkness! You bring so much joy to our family! I love your ability to make us all laugh! You love seeing other people happy! You are a wonderful example to our girls! They love to pretend they are Aunt Amy! Thank you for setting such a Godly example for two little girls, soon to be three little girls who love and look up to their beautiful Aunt very much! I cherish our relationship Amy! I hope your birthday has been just as special to you as you are to each and every member of the family! I love you!
