It was also my first time meeting Rachel and I look forward to getting to know her, John and little Henry better! I am sure you will have lots of great advice for this soon-to-be mama! Henry is the cutest!
Going out for dinner meant I skipped my evening workout but it was worth it!
Saturday hubby and I went for a walk in the morning. I needed some fresh air to wake up! When we got back it was time for me to tackle my costume. I learned that being crafty is time consuming because I am way too much of a perfectionist! I seriously have a whole bunch of craft supplies but I am afraid to waste it because I need everything to be just-so.
I decided to make my own Halloween costume this year as I wanted to make something that incorporated the belly but didn't break the bank and that is comfortable! A couple people suggested that I make a jack-o-lantern shirt (thanks Deb!). Seemed easy enough- find orange shirt (on sale for $2 and it's a regular non-maternity small! Sweet!) and some black felt.
First I cut out pieces of felt and laid them on the shirt for placement. I had to cut some pieces a couple times...
Then I pinned them on the shirt, tried on the shirt and adjusted them. This took a couple tries but I finally got it. Well I decided that I wanted to make life difficult for myself and hand sewed each piece on rather than use the glue gun. It took a good 45 minutes to sew all the pieces and when it was done, I hated it!! Some of the pieces shifted during sewing and the ends just weren't crisp the way I hoped.
So I had to take all the pieces off, re-place the pieces on the shirt, try the shirt on again and then glued each piece. It looked 1000x better glued on!

Not as fluffy as I like them to be
Hubby also had a productive Sunday. He put up all the decals in the nursery (pictures coming later!) and they look soooo good! Now I want to go out and buy furniture for him to put together! Haha!!
Since I was feeling guilty about slacking in my workouts last week, I convinced hubby to go for a walk with me in the evening. I felt bad for always leaving CoCo at home so I brought her so she could record how slow I actually am! We did just over 3K in about 34 minutes. Need to pick up the pace!
