The Downside to Summertime 3rd Trimester Pregnancy

I really don't have much that I can complain about when I am pregnant. I haven't ever thrown up. I've never had a complication. I've never even had a long labor. (my fingers are crossed and I knocked on wood so I hopefully didn't just jinx myself!)

But the one thing that kills me is that my hips don't seem to be able to handle carrying a baby very well.  They ache, they burn, they just plain ol give out when I am walking. 

So right now, today, for Throw Back Thursday I reminisce of other summertimes in the past where I have been able to take these cute girlies (even if they have bed head) on walks down the railroad tracks, through the grain fields. 

I remember that once, not so long ago, I became a runner.  Even if I was slow, at least I could run.

1 month ago I was showing my girls how to do a cartwheel.  Today, I don't even dare attempt one.  Not because I think my 30 week ol belly will be in the way, but I am worried, my hips won't be able to handle it. 

Today, I remember how much easier it was to be pregnant all winter long and have spring time babies.  I remember why I have always sworn that I will never have a baby in the summer or in the fall. 

But today, even though just want to go for a good long walk/run, I am so very grateful that I have been able to have 3 very healthy beautiful girls, and to carry another baby.  This time a boy.

I am grateful for the chance to be a mom, even if it is not pleasant to bring those kids into the world!

Can't Believe I just did THAT!

I've been wearing my comfy, ugly shoes around the house lately. The only problem with that is I ended up going to town wearing those ugly comfy shoes. On the plus side, I realized at the end of my town trip what I did instead of at the beginning.

I can't believe I left the house in these shoes!! Seriously?!? I think I've lost my brain! At least they are comfy even if they are nasty looking. �� via Instagram

PS the shoes are made by +Nike and my husband steals them from me all...the....time. They are seriously that comfy!

WIP Car Seat Tent, Boys and Girls: A Vision to Remember Instagram feed

I have had a stack of scrap pieces of fabric that have been driving me nuts lately!  I normally keep all of my pieces that I use regularly in little shoe boxes on a shelf, but each of those boxes were over flowing and I couldn't keep the lids on anymore. 

So, then I cleaned the boxes out and created over 20 new quilts and car seat tents from all those pieces being the inspiration.  Here is just a sample of what I was able to do. 

2 days and 20 quilts cut out, laid out, and ready to be sewn.  Phew!  That was a lot of work and now my body is telling me that it was a bit too much for my 30 week prego body. 

Lucky for me I now get to sit at a sewing machine and sew all those to give my body a nice rest ;)

Keep a watch in the ol A Vision to Remember Etsy shop for new car seat tents to hopefully be added over the weekend and next week. 

In the last 2 days I've cut out 20 different #ragquilt and #carseattents. My body this morning is reminding me that I'm in the #3rdtrimester and should rest a little. #feelsgood to get so much accomplished! via Instagram

I just adore the quilt that was given to me! Seriously Pam outdid herself. She took careful consideration and researched me! I am so excited to have this quilt hanging above my embroidery machine!

I am so late getting this posted but I am in love with my mini quilt from Pam! #schnitzelandboominiquiltswap #makeaquiltmakeafriend via Instagram

New Boy Car Seat Tents

With baby boy on the way and set to arrive in September I have been thinking of different styles/colors of car seat tents that I might want for myself.  All 3 of these car seat tents are available at A Vision to Remember Etsy Shop  (click on the picture for a direct link to each car seat tent)

The first is a gray and turquoise car seat tent featuring an argyle and paisley print.

Chuckars Baseball Game: A Vision to Remember Instagram feed

Once again I find myself taking pretty much the same exact picture.

The annual #idahofalls #chuckars game. The bird is the highlight every time. Except for the 2 year old. She hates him. #fearthemascot.

I need to find all of the pictures I have of my kids with the Chuckar so that I can compile them and see just how much they have grown.  I <3 and="" br="" kids="" my="" nephew="">

Herringbone Sling Bag Sewing Pattern

The herringbone sling bag sewing pattern is now available at A Vision to Remember

I absolutely love how it turned out and so do my girls. They barely put their bags down. 

My favorite part is this little girl wanting to "model" her bag for me.  She is such a crack up!
