Project Life Tuesday - Week 34

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 - We got so much done today.  Juan put up the tree above Coco's crib, although I still plan to add 3D flowers to it; Juan helped Vanessa install bulletin boards in her classroom in preparation for school starting on Monday, and we went to BabiesRUs and finally ordered a rocker (a huge ordeal)!  Ok, so maybe Juan got a lot done, LOL.  Unfortunately the rocker will take 10-12 weeks to arrive so Coco will be about 6 weeks old before it even arrives.  :(  Guess I didn't plan that very well.
Sunday - After church today, Juan and I met Marco and Gracie at Whiskey Cake for lunch.  It was pretty good food, but even better to spend some time with family.  It has been way to long since we've seen them both!

Monday - Juan brought me flowers today.  Aren't they gorgeous?  We are having friends over for dinner tomorrow, so it was a perfect excuse for him to bring me some color!  Thanks babe!

Tuesday - We invited our friends, David and Siobhan over for dinner and to see our home remodel.  It's been months since we've seen them and it was a great night.  It was fun cooking dinner and preparing for company with Juan.  We work so well together.
Wednesday - Today I am officially 33 weeks pregnant!  This week it has become difficult to get a good night's sleep.  I am up about every 2 hours as Coco lives on top of my bladder!  Starting to feel uncomfortable; but overall I'm doing well.  Getting very excited for her arrival.  This week our baby weighs a little over 4 pounds (a pineapple) and has passed the 17-inch mark.  She is rapidly losing that wrinkled, alien look and her skeleton is hardening.  The bones in her skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, thus making it easier for her to fit throught the birth canal.  These bones don't entirely fuse until early adulthood, so they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood. Pregnancy stats: 245.6 lbs.  I seem to be gaining weight too rapidly all of the sudden.       
Thursday - Juan and I went to Al Biernet's for restaurant week tonight.  Restaurant week is local 'fancy' restaurants provide a 3 course meal for $35 and donate a portion of that to the local food bank.  It is a great opportunity to try new places that typically would be too expensive.  We love Al Biernet's but do not get the chance to eat there often.  I had a rocket salad, salmon with a blueberry glaze and spinach, and carrot cake for dessert.  It was all delicious.  
Friday - Juan found out that another of his photo's is being published.  This one of the fountain at the Latin Cultural Center in Dallas.  I don't know all of the specifics of when and where it is being published, but we are excited about it.  
Thank you for visiting me again this week.  I really enjoy all the comments and seeing everyone else's pictures of the week!
