Then on Friday my sister and I went to the most amazing concert ever-BRITNEY!! Okay, I might be a little biased...I love Britney! But, I will say, it was so entertaining and so much fun to be in the crowd-just like a little kid giddy at the circus, which I assume that's what they were going for. I love going to concerts but I usually go to the run-of-the-mill Texas country concert. I love Texas country; however, the experience was completely different. We were lucky enough to have really great seat about 3 rows back from the floor! The first part of her performance was actual circus performers-like a contortionist (not sure if that is spelled correctly), two men balancing a beam on their shoulders and then throwing a lady in the air while she was doing flips. It was very impressive. But then, she came on and her whole set was just unbelievable-great dancers, interesting sets, fun costumes, and they even had a large screen that would come down from the ceiling that they played videos on. It was really spectacular! At the end of the show they had a confetti shower...ahh, what more could I have asked for?!!?
Although, the only things that made me a little nervous was the music was sooo loud and the bass was really intense. I was just anxious that it would hurt my little Pason. But, I'm pretty sure it's okay. It's not like it is a daily occurence and it wasn't more than a couple of hours.
On Saturday, my sister and I ran errands for a little while and then worked on the house. I'm so glad she came down. She's very good at organization. I love to decorate but when it comes to organizing I'm not the greatest. So, now our house looks and functions much better..thanks Courtnie! :) That night we had over Derek and Jenny and had a nice BBQ with our new grill! It was a lot of fun-besides the fact we had to watch Tech play. My husband is from Tech and is a crazy fan and this only poses a problem because I'm from A&M and 100% Aggie! This doesn't make the greatest combination if anyone knows much about Texas college football. So football season around our house should be interesting hahah...but we really did have a great time!
On Sunday, my hubby and I woke up and decided to go take a hike at the Tyler state park. It was beautiful but my allergies were going nuts! We walked about 2.5 miles and I took lots of pictures with my camera. I love being outdoors and taking pictures so this was a welcomed trip for both of us! We will be making many more visits now that we know how much there is out there! Pictures to come!

And...IT'S A BOY!!! Undeniably so! I've been so good about not shopping until I found out what our little baby was going to be so you better believe after I got out of the appointment I went shopping and found lots of cute stuff for my little boy!

I have to say...I'm happy in a sense that I'm not showing too much yet; however, I guess I'm just a little anxious and excited to see it finally pop! I'm seeing a lot of other pregnant friends who started to show as early as 9 or 10 weeks and really have a bump by now. They say between 16-20 weeks you should feel the little "flutters" of the baby kicking around and I can't wait!! I'm still very pround of myself as I have yet to buy ANYTHING..and for me, that's pretty impressive. I promised myself I wouldn't buy anything until we found out if baby Probandt is a boy or a girl. We have our scheduled ultrasound to find out on September 8th! The anticipation is gonna drive me crazy so I hope these next few weeks fly by! As I've said a million times before, as long as it is a healthy baby I will be happy with either!

Beyond the fun stuff like shopping and daydreaming...as long as my little one is healthy that is all I care about!!! I'm almost to the end of my 13th week and this week my baby is the size of a peach and is forming teeth and vocal cords (oh, the better to wail with in a couple of months haha) and the intestines are starting to move their way from the umbilical cord into the tummy.

For the hair, I know I want to wear a flower on the side but I don't know if I should go for a red and make it more of an accent (and would match my shoes and bridesmaids and tie everything together) or if I should go for a classy ivory to match my dress. My fiance loves my hair down and loose curls but I have really long hair and I know that it won't hold beautiful curls all night. So, I've thought about doing half up and half down. I'm meeting with the hair dresser in a couple of weeks so maybe she'll have some good ideas of what to do.
I like this cake and the colors are perfect!
These are the centerpieces I've already bought. I'm going to place 3 different size candles in the lantern with willow branches in a circle around it. For the 2 different sized vases I'm going to put my flowers in with willow branches coming up out of the arrangement. I'm going to place candles around the vases in Ball jars. For a table runner, I'm using a natural color burlap.
I love this idea I found on Snippet and Ink....

This frilly dress (also from lulus.com-gotta love 'em)I love peonies, but this picture makes me wanna go out buy some and then put them in my hair in hopes that it looks half as good! Maybe one day when I get married :)
These boho rings from pinquechocolat's Etsy shop!
And last but definitely not least, I really love EVERYTHING from Junk Gypsy! This is just a couple of shots of the things I love; however, there will be a longer more detailed post about the fabulous ladies over at gypsyville at a later time! There are not enough words to describe how much I respect the work they do! They are truly the most creative ladies with such a spectacular eye for style and fun! Once again, these are just a couple of things...
