High Five For Friday 9.28.12

I missed last week with all the stress and hustle and bustle of baby drama, so this week I will play catch up with some of my favorite moments for this week's High Five.
Linking up with Lauren From My Grey Desk Blog

1.) The baby nursery is coming to be complete.  We still need to order the rocker/glider and finish the changing table/dresser.. but these beauties came in from Anthropologie at the end of last week.   I plan to replace the boring wooden knobs on the dresser with these ceramic ones. They are the perfect color to match the coral theme I'm going for in the nursery.  

2.)  My 28th birthday was this week (Thursday).  I don't feel any different that I did last week at 27, but I was spoiled with great gifts from family and friends.  I received not one, but four of these holiday candles from Bath and Body.  The Pumpkin Cupcake is my favorite and smells of all things Fall. SO delicious.  I love this time of year.. LOVE it.

3.) Have I mentioned that I LOVE this time of year?  Well, yes, I LOVE it.  It makes me sad to be missing out on all the store themes for Fall as well as the pumpkins, squash, and gourds for decoration.  Being laid up in bed is not fun when you know all this Fall business is going on.. but Jordan snapped this picture last weekend while he was at Central Market.. not to tease me, but so that I could choose the pumpkins I wanted for the porch:)  

4.)  My brothers (minus one) were in town with my parents for the baby shower last weekend and its been awhile since I've snapped a picture with them, and at 10:30pm I decided it was the time to get in a good one. Sam (on the left) is a freshman in high school at Round Rock High (Austin) and Patrick is a sophomore at UNT. Both out size me by, well... a lot.  Sam is growing like a weed and Patrick has always been huge next to me.

5.) We went in for our weekly OB appointment yesterday and had my first non-stress test.  The girls looked just fine- super active (per their usual) and making so much noise because they kept kicking the monitor.  I ended up having just one contraction while I was there.. I didn't even feel it.  I was nervous for this appointment since it was the first one since they sent me home last week after threats of a hospital stay.. and I didn't want to go in there and have them tell me something I was not ready for.  All turned out great- my pre-term labor progression has stopped and continued to improved and the once severe funneling has come to a minimal and even begun to close.  Best news ever for this birthday girl!  Bed rest continues and will continue until I have these babies.. but if it is working and keeping them cooking for as long as possible- I'm willing to do anything!

No big plans for this weekend..laying in bed, movies, puzzles, trash magazine reading, starting a new book. Looking forward to today- my sweet bestest, Ashley is coming to spend the day/night with me while Jordan is at the fire station.  It makes a huge difference to have someone here to help me get what I need while he is away for 24 hours.  The less I'm off my feet the better!  

I believe Diana and Jacqueline will make an appearance, too.. I get to see all three of my bestest!  How lucky is this girl??  

Have a great weekend!
