Yesterday marks 38 weeks! That seems unbelievable that our baby boy will be here so soon! Some friends of ours gave us a gift certificate for a resort that's just 40 minutes from us. so we decided to have a little babymoon this weekend and get away.

One view of our room- They even accepted pets so Emma got to come along!

We ate at their restaurant that overlooked the entire resort. It was a gorgeous view! Here we are just outside the restaurant before heading back to the room.

Chris relaxing in the room....Emma is hidden away in the covers as usual.

Sitting beside the lake enjoying a delicious breakfast.

We had a great time, just walking the resort and relaxing!

The resort really was amazing! There's so much to do that we couldn't take advantage of given how far along I am! We're definitely planning on going back at some point soon when we can spend all day out on the lake and running along all the trails!

Baby Liu Nursery

I've had the nursery set up for a little while, but I haven't been good at taking pictures! So here's the nursery so far! All the major stuff is done; we just need some wall decorations now.

This is the view from the doorway

Here's a close up of the bumpers

And a close up of the quilt

Here's the's pretty bare right now. However, I'm going to get matching green letters to spell his name on the wall. Well, that is when we decide on a name!

Here's the changing station

I plan on spending a lot of time in this corner. We're having a monkey painting done for this blank wall, but it's not done just yet.

And the diaper stacker!

I absolutely love the bedding and curtains! My mom custom made it all for us! I'm so blessed to have a mom that can make anything I can dream up! I'll post updated pictures once the walls aren't so bare!

Garden Take 3

Remember this post? Well, that was an epic fail....turns out when you leave town for a month and your husband doesn't weed the garden, it's pretty much unsalvagable. I couldn't tell what was weeds and what were plants, so I ended up mowing over the entire thing. So that was two years ago.

Then last year if you remember this post, I just did a couple plants to see how that turned out. Obviously, the few plants I had didn't produce a lot, but I deemed them a success since they were easy to keep alive and gave us some veggies!

Now we come to my 2011 attempt at gardening, and I'm going a little bigger again this year. Since I won't be going home in June for a month as usual (seeing as how that's when baby Liu is due); I decided it'd be easier to do a bigger garden again.

Here's everything ready to go in. It's not huge, but there will be much more than last year, and hopefully ease our produce budget. We're planted a combo of seeds, plants, and plant roots.

And here it all is in the ground!! This year we planted a combo of different sweet peppers, tomatoes, spinach, asparagus, and strawberries.

I'll keep you posted on how it all goes this year!!
