36 Week Bumpdate aka Full Term

How far along: 36 weeks/ Full Term
Gender: Girl
Weight gain: 18 lbs.
Maternity clothes: Sleeping in the hubs t's due to night sweats and maxi dresses on weekends.
Stretch marks: No
Belly button in or out: It's definitely at it's maximum
Sleep: I'm up at least 4 times a night. I've been waking up with numb and tingly fingers (another pleasure of pregnancy) due to pregnancy carpal tunnel so I've upped my water intake to around 140 ounces a day. Good bye sausage fingers. 
Best moment this week: Well last week I found out that I am starting to dilate and that the baby is where she is supposed to be! I have a doctors appointment tomorrow and hopefully I'll find out some more info. These last few weeks have been crazy with wrapping up house projects but watching them get done and crossing them off of the list has been liberating. We've put together all of our gadgets except for the high chair because we won't need it for a while.
The best moment this week will be when our upstairs bathroom gets sheet rocked. Oh and when the accidental hole in my kitchen ceiling below that bathroom gets repaired. 
 Miss anything: Margaritas, my ankles and my stamina. I've noticed a drop in energy these last few weeks.
Movement: She is a wiggle worm. Every time we go to the doctor, she boots the heart beat microphone. 
Cravings: Still not much. I've been on an avocado kick but I go back and forth with them all of the time.
Looking forward to: Baby day!! I seriously can't believe how soon she will be here. And this may sound totally pathetic but I need her to stay in there for at least another 10 days, due to the fact that June's birthstone is pink and May is green (bleh). 
I added these cute little printables to her nursery last night. I'm loving the popsicles, I think that they add just the right amount of color. 
Alphabet and Popsicles

I know that I need to do a full nursery reveal soon, I have literally just been too lazy! I will try to get to it this weekend but my big plan is to get my garden planted before Baby Casey arrives.

My Push Present Came Early!

Most girls want some type of jewelry for their "push" present. If you don't know what a push present is, google it. 
A push present to me, isn't just for pushing. It's a prize for the last nine months (other than the baby being born, which is the ultimate prize). It's for giving up booze, sushi and Italian subs.
It's for surviving morning sickness, back aches and sleepless nights.
It's for going from sexy thongs to granny pannies and high heels to flats accessorized with cankles (google cankles if you need to).

My push present request was a gazebo on the deck, fully furnished of course. I thought that this would be a great gift considering it's summer, and I'll have 8 weeks off to enjoy it! It has screens so it will be the perfect place to hang out with the bambino and not getting eaten alive by the mosquitos! (and enjoy margaritas)

Here are some pics of our new outdoor living room.

I would say that it is Puppa and husband approved. We literally spent all weekend enjoying this new area!
We have 5 weeks and only a few days left to finish getting everything ready for the arrival of Baby Casey and believe me the pressure is on!

My Weekend In Pictures

1. The Bump Nest Pillow has been kidnapped.
2. One of my blogging bff's, Jen mailed me the cutest baby gift!!! I mean seriously how perfect is this onesie!
3. BLT's with Avocado and cheese. BLTAC's.
4. I had a small scare this weekend and realized that I need to pack a hospital bag stat. In two weeks this momma will be full term and could pop at any time! So I started a list based off of my Instagram post-thanks ladies!
This was from last Thursday
 5. And of course I needed a new Vera Bradley Grand Traveler bag to put all of my hospital stuff in!

Friday and Saturday consisted of cleaning and organizing! My sister helped me with a ton of stuff on Friday and the hubs is still working on wrapping up some loose ends before June!
Saturday night Josh and I went to see Neighbors. If you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and get to the theater. It's hilarious.

Lastly, this pic seemed to get a lot of "likes" on Mother's Day so I figured I would share it for those of you who hadn't seen it! 
This picture was actually from 2 years ago on Mother's Day. I had ran into a gas station to pay for gas and saw these blue blockers at the checkout and I just had to get them for her! 
I am so thankful to have her in my life!
