Bow Holder

I was crafty this weekend! I made miss Ryan a cute little bow holder!
It was really easy - I bought the letter and ribbon at Hobby Lobby.
I painted the letter... it took about 3 or 4 coats of paint and then I cut 3 foot strips of ribbon to attach to the letter.
I hot-glued the ribbon to the back of the letter, and discovered that the ends of the ribbon at the bottom wouldn't lie flat against the wall... so I hot-glued two pennies to the ends of each ribbon... it worked perfectly!
Now, I just need some more bows!! :)
I stole this idea from Pinterest! Super easy!!!
Enjoy Thanksgiving this week... I'm looking forward to time with family and yummy food! No diet this year!!!!
My next Dr. appointment is one week from today, I'll be 28 weeks!

My mom loves horses.... she has always loved horses! She has 3 full grown horses living at her home, she and my dad live on about 4 acres of land and enjoy raising a variety of different animals. Mom's heart is sold out to horses though. 

I like horses... I don't have the love for them that my mom does though. She swears that the horse obsession skips a generation.  So, Ryan will probably have the "horse-lover gene". 

Not only does Mom love having horses to ride, she really loves teaching kids about horses. So, once she found out I was pregnant, she started shopping around for the perfect pony.  She found him!! Clint and I met him Saturday night... he is beautiful and has a sweet deposition. 

Meeting  the pony for the first time. He is amazing! It's hard to tell in this picture, but Ryan was wiggled around funny and my stomach looked so weird! For the first time, my belly was crooked. :)

P.S. The pony doesn't have a name yet. Right now, he's just "the pony".

3 months

Wow... yesterday starts the official countdown. Three months till Ryan is here! I'm curious to see if time will drag or fly by.  I hoping with all the holidays coming up that it doesn't drag by at a tiring rate. 

Clint touched up paint in her room last weekend, I'm painting a few things - a wall hanging and a step stool. We haven't really started shopping for a dresser yet... that's still on the to-do list.

I'm 26 weeks today and feeling good. Every once in a while, I'll get a good jab in the ribs - not sure if it's a foot, elbow or arm... but some pointy body part. I passed my glucose test - yay!! And, I'm looking forward to eating lots of yummy food at Thanksgiving!
