Thirty Plus One

Today is a big day.  

First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JUSTIN!!!  While we can't be together to celebrate another year, know that Charlotte and I will be sure to eat lots of ice cream and cake in your honor.  :)

Secondly, we wanted to make a little announcement...

Digital Papers and Elements by Crystal Wilkerson.
I've hesitated announcing this to the blog but since today officially marks 30 weeks plus one day (one whole day longer than Charlotte stayed in my belly), I figured it was the perfect time to let the blogging world in on our little secret.  

Charlotte is already preparing to be the "best big sis" ever.

I'm trying to nest and make pretty things for the baby's nursery.  

Supplies:  Twine by The Twinery, Floss by We R Memory Keepers, Cardstock by American Crafts and Martha Stewart Crafts, Frame from Ikea, Adhesive by Xyron (Creatopia, 5" Creative Station).
And since I know that it's hard for Justin to be away while all of this is happening, I made him this little pillowcase to remind him how much our entire family loves him.  It still amazes me that by the time he gets back from deployment, there will be one more little person to hug and love and welcome him home.  :)

As always, thanks for stopping by!


  1. Congratulations Van and Justin (and Charlotte!) You must have been on tenderhooks until 30 weeks went past. Best wishes for the next few weeks.

    1. Thanks so much for the sweet words, Lisa! It's definitely a relief to be past 30 weeks now!

  2. Such happy news! Congrats Van! And, I love the sailboat decorum. Too cute!

    1. Thanks so much, Erika! And I just noticed that you've recently joined the blogging world as well. Welcome!!
