Maia Papaya

Edited to add: This post was supposed to be on my photography blog ( but I goofed and put it on here first...and since I LOVE LOVE LOVE Maia Papaya I figured I post it anyways :0) The date bars were lovely...I need to get a recipe to make them!

Melissa, owner of the Maia Papaya, was another one of this year's Women & Co. Boost Award winners with WREN. The Maia Papaya happens to be my favorite coffee shop & Melissa makes delicious salads, wraps, smoothies and yummy treats (all organic!). If you haven't been there yet, you really need to make a trip to Bethlehem, NH- she is right next to the Post Office.
Congratulations Melissa!

Oh, Happy Day!

It's official! The SHEETROCK is here :0)
Nate made a new friend with the delivery man from Varney & Smith.
Thank god for Nick, he's loaning us his sheetrock hopefully it will be up in a few days!

On a side note, I think next year for Father's Day I have to get Nate a new grill....ours is pretty sad looking!

Baby Shower at Gram's

Yesterday we had a baby shower at Gram's house for everyone "up North." Luckily, Nate was able to stop by and have lunch with was a great day...a little on VERY warm side....but it was so nice for everyone to come & it was everything was perfect! (See the banner? Sara made that & it will certainly be hung in the nursery!)
Abby gave us our wedding amazing quilt she has been cross-stitching for the past 3 years! Gram is going to help finish off the edges & hopefully we will have it in time to put in our new (1/2 completed) master bedroom!
Me & Gram and the adorable baby quilt she made for Marcus...
Sara made everything, of course, and it was perfect! I saved some candy to eat AFTER the baby comes :0)

   Sara made these little "hamburgers" with nilla wafers, a peppermint patty, and frosting for the lettuce and ketchup!
 I hope this sweet little hoodie, handmade by Amanda's mom, will fit him! I can't wait to try it on :0)

A BIG thank you to Sara, Gram, Mom & Hannah Bess for all of their hardwork putting this together!

32 week check up

today nate & i went to marcus's 32 week appt with dr. marks.
i lost 3 lbs in the past 2 weeks- prolly due to being sick...dr marks wasn't concerned since i've gained a total of 21 so far. marcus's heartbeat was good, my bellly measured right, and he is still staying head down- but kinda lopsided...since he is all on my right side. my bloodpressure was 98/62...the best part is that because I seem to being keeping my blood sugars under control, I now only have to test my blood sugars 2 days per week, rather than jabbing myself 4 times a day!!!! Yay!

i feel terrible today- very pukey and sore. i'm sitting on the couch with a heating pad and oscar (taking a break for editing photos)...nate is upstairs drilling holes in the 2x4s so they can pull all the wiring tomorrow (they = dad + nate).

the upstairs is all framed- so we are just needing to get the wiring done..and then they can insulate (already purchased ) sheetrock (need to buy)...paint (abby, mom, sara- i'm using the same beach blue in the kitchen for the nursery...and will need to buy the light brown/cream for the bedroom) and then we can put in the flooring..which i bought a few weeks ago.

32 weeks. 8 weeks to go. 146 lbs.
tired of someone's little foot under my rib cage :0)
