Christmas in July

I don't know if I've ever looked forward to Christmas as much as I'm looking forward to it this year! Everyday I picture exactly how I'm going to decorate my home, I daydream about staring out my windows at all the snow, and I already have my Christmas play list put together on my iPod :) Why am I so anxious for Christmas to get here? Because... I'm going to have a brand new BABY!! I'm only a little excited ;) So when I saw the Christmas in July gift exchange floating around blog land I had to participate. I was paired with Jordan, and this girl is just plain awesome. Love her! She sent me the most adorable necklace ever! I never buy jewelry for myself (I have no clue what's cute, and what's not, ha ha) so I'm super excited about my gift :) She also mention sending our baby a little somethin' when we find out the gender... which is way too sweet!
Now it's time for a confession... I have not had 2 seconds to sit down and blog this week. Eric and I have actually been having a life in this little town (which we are loving) and I've forgotten how to balance blogging and real life ;) Ha ha, I'm kidding! But I'm ashamed to admit that the only picture I have so far of Jordan's gift is not the best. But I have to get to work in a few minutes so I'll be updating this post with more pictures at the end of the week (bad blogger- so sorry).


 This picture was taken on Sunday... the beginning of 19 weeks! (Can't believe I'm almost half way! Woo hoo!) Notice the necklace I'm wearing? SO CUTE! I love it, Jordan! Thank you so much :)

Christmas in July reminds me of Thanksgiving in August, which is what we had at our house last year because I was craving Thanksgiving food, lol. I figured that by the time Thanksgiving came, I would either have a tiny baby and wouldn't be able to cook or go anywhere, or I would be too huge to appreciate all the yummies! :) Love the necklace. You are adorable with your tiny bump.

Don't feel bad...on the way to our beach vacation last week we definitely put on a Christmas CD... ha! And I also never buy jewelry. I always think everything looks really cute, and then when I try to actually pick something I suddenly can't envision myself wearing any of it so I just give up. I don't think I know what's cute or not either!
