We are still waiting on baby girl to arrive. I'm trying my best to be patient and trying to enjoy every minute I have left to myself before she arrives. My house is spotless, my bags are packed, and we have everything ready for her to arrive!

We've done everything to try to start labor naturally...and she's just not ready to come. I've been eating spicey food, walking, swimming, reflexology, acupuncture, massage...everything!

She'll come when she's done cooking! My little bun just likes being in the oven!

Diesel is ready to meet her, too! He won't leave my side!


  1. Pea salad looks beautiful, but I am really anxious for pics of your little sweet pea :) Come on baby girl!

  2. The salad looks fabulous. I think I am going to give it a try this weekend.

    You look ready! Hang in there. It cant be too much longer. You still look beautiful.



  3. Oh yum...looks so good...great to see you at Farm chicks!
