Project Life Tuesday - Week 27

Welcome to Project Life Tuesday 2011! If you are new to my blog, welcome! I hope you will stay awhile. I'm Jessica and I am participating in Project Life, a different way to record our lives by taking one photo a day. This was inspired by the fabulous Becky Higgins who has put together a wonderful kit to make this challenge easier.
Don't worry, I'm not leaving traditional scrapbooking behind. This just gives me the opportunity to focus my scrapbooking on trips and things that are important to me right now and not get all bogged down with every birthday, dinner, and holiday that comes along.
Each Tuesday, I will post my pictures/journaling from the previous week. Project Life Tuesday was created by Jessica Turner over at The Mom Creative and she hosts a linky for readers to link up their pictures. So if you want to join in or want to see others POTW, just click the Project Lift button at the top of this post.
And finally, my POTW:

Saturday - Juan decided that he needed ants to crawl across the beam in our living room.  I'm not real thrilled with them, but he thinks they are "artsy"!
Sunday - Mom came over to help me modify our new curtains and get them hung.  Juan had to install all of the curtain rods and after about 5 different curtain configurations, we ended up using them just they way they were intended.  Our bedroom is almost finished!
Monday - Today is the 4th of July.  We were supposed to go to the fireworks tonight with Mom and Vanessa's family, but Coco decided to wear me out and upset my tummy, so we bailed out at the last minute.  I couldn't stand the thought of sitting outside in 103 degree weather. Adam was planning on going with us, so he and Juan decided to grille instead.
Tuesday - Here is our new bedroom, almost all complete!
Wednesday - Today I am officially 26 weeks pregnant! This week I am really starting to feel big. It is much harder to get up and down, especially from bed in the mornings. She is also very active, just in the last couple of days; but now it is different. Instead of feeling her high when she moves, it is way down low...almost to my chahula! And it sort of feels like little spasms. I keep having this reoccuring dream that I look down at my belly and here little face and hands are pushed clear through almost my skin and I can make out every feature and detail; but then I panic that she is suffocating. How wierd! Weight update: 230.2 lbs. She is now about 14" long from head to heel and weighs about a pound and 2/3rds, about the size of an English hothouse cucumber. For some reason that makes me laugh.

Thursday - I made dinner for the first time since we've moved back into our house. It was just mexican chicken casserole, mexican rice and salad; but it was nice to sit down together for dinner at our new table.
Friday - This week I was finally able to start scrapbooking again.  I was excited to learn that one of my pages was "featured" on Scrapbook Challenges and one of my pages was "featured" on Let's Scrap. What a way to inspire me to create some more!  I have soooooo been missing my scrappy loft.  
Thanks for visiting!
