Top 2 Tuesday

Once again, it is Tuesday, which brings us Top 2 Tuesday, thanks to Taylor @ The Undomestic Momma!

This week's topic is: Top 2 Favorite Places in Your Home

1) The porch. Kyle's dad & brothers built this onto our house as a wedding present. 2 years later, it is finally stained & furnished! Kyle just recently bought me a nice porch swing as an early mommy present. He knows I love swinging & have been dying to have a swing somewhere in the yard. He thought with the weather being as warm as it's been, that I will enjoy swinging outside when sweet Kinsley arrives. I have already spent lots of time out there watching the dogs play and just enjoying the mild temps (and sometimes hot temps) since we've gotten it

2) Kinsley's nursery. I did a post on it here. It came out so well. I used to say, before marriage, that when I had a baby, I wanted the nursery done with Classic Pooh, mural on the wall & all. However, once I found out that I was pregnant, my mind quickly changed. I wanted to steer clear of a theme & I knew I wanted to include pink but didn't want it to be over-the-top frilly & princess-y either. I think we managed to create a classic room that Kinsley will be able to grow in.

..anddd, the runner up is my master suite. I LOVE our king size bed & my bathtub. I spend lots of time in both places when I just need to relax after a long day.

& just as an update from my exciting weekend, explained in this post, I went to the doctor again today as a followup. I lost my mucous plug today (ew) & am continuing to have contractions, sometimes closer together than others, but generally getting more intense. Kinsley Anne's heart was beating nice & quickly & strongly. When I got checked, I was still 1cm (same as Friday) but I am now 80% effaced whereas I was not effaced at all. My next appointment is scheduled for next Tuesday, but the doctor made sure to tell me "you know where to find us." Wish us luck and send up some prayers on our behalf as we try to keep her cooking long enough to avoid the NICU, if possible.

Until Next Time..
Love, Jen

Hi! Just stumbled across your blog. I don't have my own but have bookmarked a few to come back to.
I don't usually comment since I have nothing to link back to but I did notice your "burning question" from a couple of weeks ago- I am a waitress at Red Lobster and they always tell us to put the number of people+1 for biscuits. That way they stay warm and you can always ask for new ones :)
Love the name Kinsley- best luck for the rest of your pregnancy :)
