5 on Friday

Linking up with the lovely ladies above for 5 on Friday today! 

Exactly one month from today, we'll be meeting our sweet Avery Rose!! I seriously can't wait to hold her and kiss her sweet cheeks!

I'm also excited because my husband is having a Poker and Pampers Party tomorrow evening. He has around 20 guys coming to play and to get in, you have to bring a package of diapers! I saw this idea a while back and thought it sounded so fun, so I ran it past Jake and he loved it. He loves playing poker and thought it would be a fun night for he and his friends. They're getting pizza, snacks, soda and beer and will play a couple rounds of Texas Hold Em. It should be a fun evening and I'm looking forward to all the diapers we'll get. :-)

The invitation I made for the party.

 With my mom and my sister's help, I'm hoping to get the nursery completely done this weekend. We just have a few decorations and frames to hang up and it will officially be done. :-)

 Lately, my sister has been cutting Jackson's hair and she does a great job, but for whatever reason, Jackson throws a big fit and cries the entire time. So when it was past time for him to get another haircut, I thought maybe I would take him to someone that he didn't know to get it cut and maybe he wouldn't act crazy. I found a fun children's salon here in St. Louis called the Hairy Elephant. So I made an appointment for him for last Saturday and he did great. He was a little apprehensive about it, but he didn't cry at all. The kids sit in cars and he got to sit in the one that looked like Lightening McQueen! They also get to pick a movie to watch while they're getting their hair cut, which was a nice distraction. After he was done, he got a sucker and actually didn't want to leave. Ha. Needless to say, I scheduled another appointment for him for after the baby is born. :-)

 I'm also hoping to get a few Maternity photos this weekend and then a few more after getting my hair done in 2 weeks. My sister is going to take a few for me tomorrow, as long as the weather is decent. Here is one of my favorites that I really want to try of me and Jackson.

I hope you all have a super fabulous weekend!!!

The Poker and Pampers idea is brilliant! You can never have too many diapers. :)
The haircut place looks and sounds amazing. Marcus throws a fit when we give him in-home cuts. We might have to try something like this.

We love the Hairy Elephant too! Mac has a hard time initially, but warms up after a sucker and playing on the train table for a while. And I have that exact same bump/toddler photo pinned! I can't wait to see the photos you get!
