Here are some preeesh-ious shoes I found and a cute onesie...mama can always dream that he loves to nap, right?! (Sorry the picture is turned...can't figure out why it's doing that - anyone know? I've re-uploaded it 3 or 4 times and it keeps doing it.)
Another cute pair of shoes I got for 99 cents!
One of my favorite onesies from Gap...only $3!!
And finally, a few decorations for the room. Some of you have asked if I've decided on a theme, and we're not really going with a set "theme", so to speak. His bedding & room will be in blue, chocolate brown, white, and khaki mostly. We will have some accents, such as vintage airplane type stuff, and of course you can't forget this guy, so a monkey or two will be present. Here are a couple of planes and a frame I got from Kirkland's.

Check out this sweet onesie my Aunt Nancy sent him...I love it!!
My mom and dad got him these outfits...aren't those monkey feet too precious?!
Sound off below with your guesses! :)

We'll be there for about 2 weeks and can't wait to spend time with them and our niece and nephew! I'm planning on spending some time at the orphanage there as well as visiting my nephew's school...I just know it's going to be such a great time. I do wish I could speak Spanish a little better than I can. I mean, if anyone needs me to count to ten or know what color something is, I'll be the go to person. Apart from that, let's go ahead and call my 15 hours of college Spanish a waste. Patrick speaks Spanish so he's tried to give me some pop quizzes lately...however, they mostly result in me staring blankly at him. So wish me luck!
We sponsor a little girl through Compassion that lives only about 15 minutes from where they are, so we were hoping to get to meet her while there. Unfortunately that isn't going to work out this trip due to Compassion not having the ability to schedule a sponsor visit at this time, but there's always next time!
I will try to blog some while I'm there, but no promises. (Not that you guys have any expectations of me anyway since I'm pretty hit and miss on my blogging consistency...) Please pray that this will be a blessed trip and that I will continue to feel great. :) Thanks!

And here's another shot proving he's a boy...because my husband just can't get enough of those. Notice the comment he typed on the screen...silly boys!!
It was so fun to see him again and know he's doing well. I've been feeling really great...enjoying the 2nd trimester through and through. Here is an update on some belly pics of me. I will be honest though...I forgot to take my 5 month picture. This picture was taken Sunday, so I'm technically 23 weeks...which is still in the 5th month, so that counts, right? Anyway, as evidenced below, I continue to grow from the chest up...it's getting ridiculous.

The Office Quote of the Week
"Hi, Jan, it's Michael. I just, um, I just want to let you know that I am going to go to your Lamaze class tomorrow. Um and if there's any details you need to fill me in on, like what exactly Lamaze is, that would be great, and I will see you tomorrow morning." -Michael
I was so sad to get to the end of my Office Daily Quote calendar. I've searched everywhere but can't find it in stores. I did see it on Amazon, but am waiting until I need some other things so I can qualify for free super saver shipping...makes it all worth it. No worries though, I saved some quotes from my 2009 calendar to hold me over on my Friday posts til I get the new one.
I'm still on a huge organizing/decluttering kick, which makes me happy!! If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen this unruly picture of my closet:Pretty much this is what happens when you a.) haven't unpacked from all your travels since Thanksgiving, and b.) add maternity clothes to an already crowded closet. I have since divided & conquered the closet, and have 3 huge bags of clothes to get rid of now. SO much better! I will post some before and after photos next week because...well, because I forgot to take any after photos. I have moved on to my craft armoire which has completely fallen apart, so I hope to find a solution to that this weekend. All this organizing makes me feel warm & fuzzy. You know what else makes me feel warm & fuzzy? Labeling things. So in honor of that, I have some labels I am going to giveaway next week. (I will post pictures & details of what words they are, etc. when I do the giveaway.)
And finally, a friendly reminder...
Happy Weekend, Friends! :)
