Baby J's Nursery

Baby J's nursery is all done and ready for our newest little guy... we are all getting excited. We have about 8 weeks left! I know it is going to go so fast and our lives are going to change so much.
The Tree- came in a million pieces- took 6 hours to put up. Justin did most of it but Jackson and I also both helped. We are super happy with the way it turned out!
The "art" This was something I found and loved... I could have bought about 4 other cute ones too... They say "Someday I'll have Big Muscles" and "Someday I'll be somebody's Prince Charming."
The crib skirt- I made it! I even went a little rouge on the directions and it actually turned out well! It is actually reversible too...
The Curtains- half way home made... I put the trim on them to match the crib skirt.
The blank wall.... We have two brown birds and the name to put on this wall... we will put it up once we are home... keeping the name a surprise! I am actually doing really well with this secret (for once).

Fun Fun Events

We have been busy attending some fun events! We figure we should get some big kid stuff in before Baby J comes.
We went to Sesame Street Live at Sprint Center.
We also went to Monster Jam at Sprint Center. Complete with Pit Passes we were able to walk down on the dirt and were able to get real close to the MONSTER TRUCKS! They really are huge and more that they are big... they are LOUD. We had a really good time.
This is Monster Mutt; he was our favorite!

Two totally different events....

Maui Wowie

We went on a trip to Maui in January! Here are the details...
Justin received an awesome award at work... Peak Achievement Award. People are nominated by other co workers and then selected by senior leaders. It is about 200 employees of the thousands across the entire company of TMobile. It really is a huge deal, once in a lifetime award and was such a big honor for Justin. By far this is the biggest award you can receive at TMobile! Justin is so modest but this really was great recognition for the amazing hard work he puts in at Tmobile.
So the reward for the award... an all expense paid trip to Maui for 2!!! Luckily Justin picked me to go with him.... So we made plans for Jackson to be in great hands and Justin and I packed for 6 nights away from home. This was the longest we had been away from Jackson... luckily it did not phase him one bit! He stayed with Mimi and Poppy and really enjoyed his time.

We were treated fabulously while in Maui. We stayed at the Sheraton Maui Resort, were greeted with new shade from Maui Jim on the second day and fed great meals all week. We got to go on a snorkel and sailing excursion and also a traditional Luau. We also rented a jeep and made the journey to Hana down a winding road through the rain forest. It was perfect! The weather in Maui was about 80 degrees each day. We loved every moment and truly relaxed. This time of year is special in Maui as it is Whale season... yes... humpback whales travel from Alaska to Maui each January through March. It was so fun to see them just flopping around in the water about 100 yards off the shore. Not to mention a few other fun events- a wonderful dinner out (date night in Maui rocks), Justin "cliff jumping" and lots of time by the pool.

This was a once in a life time experience that we will never forget!
Of course baby J was with us... I was 26 weeks pregnant on this trip- we did great!
