Nursery Make-Over (part 1)

If you will recall the crib mom and dad surprised me and finished the crib while I was gone to San Diego. We had started it before I left but it was such a nice surprise to have it done! The completion of the bed and a free Saturday sparked the rest of the furniture re-finishing to take place. Let's just say we had a VERY productive Saturday and a lot of fun in the process! Enjoy the pictures of our nursery in progress!

San Diego

I went to San Diego this past week for the annual AAPA (American Academy of Physician Assistants) conference. This was my fourth annual trip to the conference. My dear friend, Kate Turner, and I got to be roomies while at conference and we had a grand time!

Reunion time! Kate Turner, Mandy Ormond, Stephanie Clark Mayberg, and Cheryl Ball Potter- BCM class of 2007!

Carson meets Payton

On my way to San Diego I had a layover in Houston, so I was lucky enough to be able to meet up with The Heston's for lunch! It was such a treat!!

27 weeks

Carson is growing! 27 weeks.
Larry got a great laugh out of this one- I'm wearing my Houston marathon shirt from 2008- you may barely notice a little belly hanging out of the bottom. I forgot to change before I went for my walk/jog and ended up looking like the funny little fat mouse on Cinderella whose shirt comes half way over his belly!

Happy Birthday Larry!
We celebrated Larry's 28th birthday last weekend. We had dinner at a great cajan restaurant in Little Rock, Copelands. Then Saturday we grilled burgers at the state park across the street from our house. We had a great time and look at the beautiful sunset!

Nursery Time

Working on Carson's nursery...We don't have a "theme" but have some fabric prints picked out and a lot of ideas of how to re-finish some great second-hand furniture. These are a few of the highlights...

Going Live....

After much persuasion, I have decided it is time to start a Walker family blog. While, updates on our day to day life might be a bit boring at the about 3 months that will all change and you will find our blog much more exciting and inviting. Why? Because around August 18th, we will welcome into this world our first little bambino- Mr. Carson Jack Walker (AKA or formerly known as "Peanut")! For now, your glimpses of his growth consist of my belly growing larger by the day and the evolution of his nursery decor. Enjoy and please be patient with me as I try to figure out this crazy world of blogging!

Here's a brief overview of our journey toward parenting!
