Cake created by Jamie @ Baker's Bliss
Six days to go until BB King's estimated arrival!  He is now affectionately referred to as Alexander Grant King.  Alexander and Grant are two of my great-grandfather's names and my dad's middle name.   By the way, Alexander also means 'King.'  It pleases me so much to have settled on a name that means something and has family ties.  This boy has some mighty big shoes to fill with that name!

Pregnancy fortunately has been very smooth sailing for me.  I had some fatigue at the beginning but no nausea at all.  Supposedly that is indicative that you are giving birth to a boy.  Baby Alex has been quite the traveler with trips to Marco Island and L.A.  There was no slowing us down.  However,  now as I am at the 39.5 week mark, I am so ready to get this over with and move onto the main event of meeting Alex in the outside world.  Getting up 4 times per night to go to the bathroom, not being able to find a comfortable sleeping position, not being able to bend over, or move around very easily for that matter, is really starting to wear on me.  I pray everyday that Alex is a healthy, happy and normal baby and that his birth goes smoothly.  However, God willing, the sooner we get to that moment the better at this point :)

I would use primer on my eyes to 'try' and prevent my eyeliner from migrating from my upper lash line to the crease of my eyelid. The primer only helped slightly.  Saturday, I splurged on the Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner.  Love it! It doesn't fade, smudge, or run.  It stays put!  I got the purple tang color and it is so vibrant.  I think I may go to Sephora for the rest of the colors!

I think these would go smashingly with the Michael Kors watch.  The wonderful thing about Toms shoes, if you didn't know already, for every pair purchased, Toms will give a pair of shoes to a child in need.  You don't see Nike doing that and their shoes cost way more!
