Nursery Furniture and School

Yesterday, Joey and I, (along with help from Grandma Bintliff and Grandma Edmisten) picked out, and ordered our nursery furniture for little baby Edmisten! We went to USABaby in Riverside. They had a great selection of nice quality furniture. We are so excited about what we picked and Joey and is looking forward to painting the room! We chose the Bonavita Metro Collection. We are getting the crib, tall dresser, and 6 drawer dresser (that is not pictured). We chose the cherry finish which is shown in the picture. Once the nursery is finished, we will post pictures here for sure!

Also, Joey officially starts a new school year this week! This is already his 4th year at Fairmont Private School in Anaheim teaching 4th grade and he loves it! As for me, I am sad that a new school year is starting and I don't have a classroom to call my own! I love teaching and I hope that something works out for me! If not, I will be substitute teaching and getting ready for baby!

First Trimester Screening

Joey and I went last Monday for our First Trimester Screening. They measured the nasal bone and nuchal translucency (back of the neck). Everything looked good! The ultrasound tech was great and spent some extra time showing us how nice the baby's head and skull looked, which made us give a huge sigh of relief based on our history.

We are so excited for our next ultrasound which is where they will measure bones and organs and also confirm the sex of the baby! We have already started looking at strollers and cribs and Joey is SUPER hands on for all of this! He has enjoyed test driving the strollers and we think we have found one that we like!

Tracy's Favorite Things

As many of my friends know, there are some products in my life that I am VERY passionate about using. For a long time, I wanted to start a blog called "Tracy's Favorite Things." At this point, I don't think I will have time to start a separate blog, but I figured I would start posting some of my favorites since I got this blog up and running. Besides products, I am also an amazing deal finder, so I will post good deals I find here too!

My very first favorite thing is something that I tell people is "life changing." Now I know you might be thinking that no skin care product could possibly be life changing, but I swear to you, your face will never be the same after this!!

Do yourself, and your skin, a favor and get the Microdelivery Peel by philosophy! It is a 2 step treatment that I like to do every Sunday night. I feel like it's a great way to get my skin ready for the week. You can do this peel in less than 5 minutes and the result will leave you amazed. Your skin will feel softer than you've felt it in a long time!

The best deal I have found on this product has been through It's a super size 4oz. set for $100. Here's the link:

If you're not sure you will love it enought to spend $100 right now, it is also available in a 2oz. size through Sephora for $65.

I have convinced MANY people to use this product and they all say they can't live without it now! They all tried the small size and said, "Next time I am buying the jumbo QVC size!"

If you own it, or if you try it after reading this, please feel free to comment below! I'd love to hear what you think of it!!

Entering the blog world

So many people I know have their own blogs and I read them faithfully! I love to read about what they're up to, and I figured it was time to get started on a blog about Joey and I. I'm not 100% sure I'm doing any of this correctly, but here I go anyways.

I am looking forward to sharing Edmisten family news, especially about baby, with everyone!

Our Wedding Day!
