Weekend Crafts!

This weekend I crafted a few things for the baby's room! We've been buying and receiving a lot of clothes and since there are so many sizes I wanted to create some closet dividers. I love how they turned out! I created a template on PhotoShop, printed the PDF file onto a full sheet of label paper, cut them out, and then stuck them on the dividers. I used the blank closet dividers from The Container Store. I want to experiment a bit more with creating these dividers and am hoping to be able to add them to my Etsy shop sometime soon! My second craft this weekend was a hair bow holder. I wanted to create a piece that we could display on the wall in order to add some color to the room. I created a framed hair bow holder using an 11 x 14 open back frame that I found at Michael's. I … [Read more...]

Most items are up to 50% off retail value! I was browsing the website this morning and picked up a few things for our little girl...

Baby McClure is a…

GIRL! :) Scott and I found out a little over a month ago that we are expecting a baby girl. It was quite the process to figure out her gender... I had my 20 week ultrasound with my doctor and we were so excited to find out if our baby was a boy or a girl. Well, the baby did not want to cooperate that morning and was curled up into a ball as low as she could get! It didn't help that we were an hour late being sent back to the ultrasound lab... We sat in the waiting room forever and somehow my chart was never sent back. The doctor told me that we could try for gender again in 4 weeks. There was no way I could wait 4 more weeks! A friend of mine told me about a place near our house called Baby's First Images. For a very small price we got to book a 3-D ultrasound and find out the gender. I … [Read more...]

We’re having a baby!

Scott and I have been married for almost 2.5 years. We always said that we would want to be married at least two years before having kids. We celebrated our 2 year anniversary this past June and decided we wanted to start trying for a baby in September. On October 1st, I took a pregnancy test (4 days early) and this is what I saw! A few weeks later, I got a sinus infection. I went to see my general doctor and she was able to confirm my pregnancy!  I am now 20 weeks pregnant! We have been to the doctor three times so far. We were able to see the baby at week 10 and 12. I've been feeling great so far! During the first trimester, I was never sick. I only lost my appetite at night and I slept a lot! Now that I'm into the second trimester, I feel so much better. I've started walking a lot and … [Read more...]
