A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to go back to Logan and walk at the commencement ceremonies.

I am nearly-after-i-finish-two-online-summer-classes a college graduate!
Walking was something I really wanted to do-- even being seven months pregnant! 
Logan was where I started my college education-- and where I spent the first three and a half years-- so I wanted to finish there as well.

So many memories came flooding back to me! 
I will always love Utah State. 
It's where I really discovered who I was and what I believe in. 
It's where I made lifelong friends. 
And it's where I met that best-o of mine!:)
Logan will always have a piece of me.

 Aggie for life!

My dad who serves on the Utah Education Board of Regents was able to hand me my diploma cover. That was such a neat experience! It was fun to see my dad dressed up in graduation garb watching his last daughter graduate from college! 

 Parading through campus, making ridiculous faces (apparently).
 In a sea of graduates-- Hi Mom!
 The people who got me to where I am today!
 My number one fan.
 Aggie Grads!
 All of my supporters!
 My awesome in-laws!
 Sisters- minus Al!
 Baby getting some recognition for making the walk with me. :)

Now I leave behind that stage of my life and take on the next: motherhood. 
And you know, I couldn't be more excited about my post-college plans! I think this boy will be a pretty cute daily companion.

33 weeks down, 7 to go! It's creeping up on us. We're a little nervous (or a lot), but we can't wait to meet this little man.

 Last week I had a little self-portrait photo shoot in the baby's empty room.

I had to mark 30 weeks. My belly is growing, so baby is too! I can tell he is getting more squished in there, because part of his body has taken residence up in my right rib cage. 
That's okay baby, I love you enough to let you poke and prod me any way you want.

I am now 31 weeks. Only 9 weeks until the due date. Hooray!
I love single digits.
Bye bye toesies.

Baby Boy's Nursery

Let me just start out by saying this post has been a long time coming!
I have spent quite a bit of time on it... and after doing so one afternoon, my internet browser crashed and blogger did not save my draft! 
So I hurry and wrote down everything I remembered so I could recreate it.

Anyway-- I have been planning my little buddy's nursery out for the last few weeks (since I finally settled on my color scheme/ideas).  There isn't really going to a "theme" to the nursery. The style is simple and modern with a vintage twist. 

Some of the items I have purchased. Some I plan to purchase. And others are going to be used as inspiration! 

I am really excited for it to all come together and for this little guy to live in it. :) I mean, it is FOR him and created with him in mind. Of course. :)
