Visit from friends!

Last weekend Joe and I had a visit from two of our close friends, Pat and Sarah! We had such a great time with them!! They are also expecting their first baby girl too and it was a lot of fun to 'be fat' with Sarah! We got a lot of looks and even some comments from people who thought it was funny to see two totally pregnant girls together!

We took them around Hartsville one day and gave them the grand tour of the gardens and the town (took a total of 3 hours :) and then we went over to Pearl Fryar's Topiary Garden in Bishopville, SC. This man, Pearl Fryar, has created an amazing garden in his yard of plants and trees that he creates incredible designs out of. His website is It really was amazing to see all that he can do! And kinda weird that he lets people just walk through his yard!!

Then on Sunday we took a trip back to Charleston and the 'lowcountry' to give them a real taste of South Carolina. It was a lot of fun to go back as tourists rather then residents!

Here are some pictures from the weekend.

Thanks for coming Pat and Sarah!! We'll be out to Colorado once the babies are here!!

As for me and baby, we're doing good! We're officially 35 weeks and in the homestretch!! I'm starting to get a little frantic cause we don't really have anything done and her room still looks like a storage facility, but hopefully that will all change next week when we get the crib set up and everything starts to come together! She is still really moving like crazy and I think she has her foot stuck in my ribs :) But other than the swelling (I can't fit into any of my shoes) and then constant achyness, we're doing great!!

Some people think I have a problem :)

But I just want to make sure all the baby products are up to 'Chrissie Code'

BTW - I don't think this is considered animal abuse - she actually loves it! I could even get it to swing a little before she would freak out!

YAY for baby stuff!!

This is the week of baby stuff at the Thomas house! We got our stroller from Matt and Katie for our shower (thanks guys!!) and then our carseat came in this week and I assembled the swing (thanks mom!!)! Our furniture should be here in 2 weeks and then the bedding (thanks Grandma Faye and Bumpy!) then we'll be ready for baby! It's so weird to have all this stuff in the house and I keep having to go back to the baby's room to check on it and make sure it's all still there :) Joe tried out the stroller to make sure the pink was still manly enough :)

Baby is still kicking like crazy! She's at a point where I can feel body parts from the outside. She loves to stick her butt out and at my last doctor's appt the nurse even made a comment about how far it was sticking out on my left side! And lately she's been running an elbow or something boney (must be from the Maslar side of me :) along my right side. It's such a weird feeling!

Baby Shower!

My baby shower was last Saturday - the 29th in Largo, FL at Nicole Hartwell's house. Nicole, Anna and Katie did such a great job!! Everything was so cute and everyone had a great time! Thanks you guys for making it so special!!

Here's the link for pictures.

We've also set up the account on Shutterfly to where you can view all our pictures as we add them...the link is

Everyone was so generous for our sweet little girl and we appreciate everything!! I can't wait till she gets here so I can dress up my little doll!

Today I spend all day painting the closets in the nursery and while I was at it I decided to do the ones in the guest room too...I don't know what I was thinking! I'm completely exhausted and worn out!! Joe's not one for painting so it was all my that I don't want to do again for a long, long time!! But now that it's finished, the carpets will be cleaned next week (thanks to the dogs) and then furniture delivered!! I can't believe how fast it's all going!! I have less than 2 months and that's not nearly enough time to get everything done that I want to do!! And we have visitors coming for the next couple weekends so that's going to make everything go even faster!! Joe and I can't believe that in just a matter of weeks we could be meeting our baby girl! AAAHHH!!! It still feels like a dream!!
