The Nesting Post

We have made it to the fifteen day mark. FIFTEEN DAYS. Wow. I've finally been bitten by the nesting bug. I was kinda worried that it hadn't really happened yet. I think it's baby #2 syndrome. With Aiden, we were buying stuff, washing stuff, and setting up stuff left and right. With this one, we've just sort of coasted along. I am sure we feel more comfortable this time around. Well, that...and the fact that we have an almost 3 year old to keep us occupied.

We have all of the gear set up, bottles and clothes washed and ready, and arrangements made for Aiden when the big day comes. But? That's it. We I still have the nursery (Anna Scott's side of the room) to finish, the hospital bag to pack, Aiden's bag to pack, a house to clean (hopefully our housekeeper can come next week), and -MY FAVORITE- a shower to go to today!

For the nursery, I already have her bedding basics. My mom helped me pick out and purchase the cutest stuff at PB Kids last weekend! She also got lots of accent things that I will get this afternoon at my shower. I can't wait to put it all together. We went sans bumper this time around. Even though they are so stinkin' cute, my pediatrician freaked me out with Aiden.  His didn't last. I took that sucker out as soon as we got home from our first appointment. But I love what we have put together. It's girly without being frilly-froofy, which icks me out.

quilt - We have it on the reverse side (a solid soft pink) for now.

I noticed that her corner of the room seemed bare. We have letters being made for above the crib, but I thought it still needed more PINK. I've seen the tissue poms and have always thought they were cute, but it never occurred to me to do them for her. And thanks to pinterest and Becky at From Mrs. to Mama I know how to do it! So that's my project for the week. We also need to go to Babies R Us (my favorite place right now) to pick up the changing pad cover and some sort of basket/caddy thing for the changing table.
Lots to do, lots to do. But first, off to the shower (which is at Jim 'N Nicks bbq-I know; you wish your friends were that cool) I am sooooo excited! I can't wait to post the finished product(s). Nursery and human.

Coffee Confessions

I do not blog enough. I don't know why. I freaking love it. Really. But also? I am a major procrastinator, no matter what it is. Even things I enjoy. I'm weird and I know it. 

On that note, I believe I am officially "old". For several reasons: Every time I watch SNL, I know the host, but have no clue who the musical guest is. And when I watch the performance, I fast forward it because "Music just isn't good like it was in MY DAY." Seriously, though? That group LMFAO? They look like a couple of idiots. And while the songs are catchy, do they really have as much talent as R. Kelly, Boyz II Men, Nirvana, Dave Matthews? Negative. WOW. I sound like a parent. Oh, wait...

There are two huge plants on my patio that are so D E A D. But I do nothing but walk past them twice a day and think, "Dang. The plants are dead."

I butchered my dog's hair yesterday. I thought I could cut and clip him like the groomer and save $100. But he wasn't having it. He even bit me. So now he looks awful. Every time I look at him, I hear Sarah McLachlan singing. We're taking him to the groomer next week. And when I say "We" I mean Jamie. Because I'm too embarrassed. 

I am obsessed with two things right now. It's not healthy. One is the JuJuBe diaper bag that I am willing to almost do anything for. It is way too expensive. It is also way too awesome. So it's worth it. Right? The other is Tarte lip tints. I spent a gift card at ULTA a couple weeks ago and bought one for $24 which is ridiculous, but I justified it b/c of the gift card. But I LOVE IT! And now I want more. I found a set of 5 for $30, but everyone is sold out. This makes me sad.

In four weeks or so, I will be a mother of two. I will also be able to stay at home for almost five months. I am tearing up right now just thinking about it. To say I am thankful would be an understatement. SO blessed.

I came home Friday night around 10 and straight-up baked a chocolate cake. Then I ate like three pieces of it. Truth.

I lost a gift certificate for a mani-pedi. This upsets me to the core because I really want pink toes for Valentine's Week (silly, I know). Usually, I would do it myself. But? I'm pregnant, and I can't reach my dad-gum toes. I may have to ask the husband. Bless his heart. 

I wear the same pair of pants to work every. day. They are black Liz Lange pants from Target, and they feel like pajamas. I wash them on the weekend. So that makes it okay.

I absolutely adore my husband. He is still the hottest thing walking. He is kind and gentle with our son. He goes to the grocery store for me and gets gas for me. He comes to all of our doctor appointments. He even has tried to pick up after himself lately. I know he is making an effort for me, and that melts my heart. His smile is awesome. And so are his legs. 

I cannot wait until Valentine's Day! Everything is pink and red. I get to eat chocolate. I get to go out to dinner and get dressed up. It also means Spring is just around the corner! Bring it on.

K. I'm done.
Happy Valentine's Week!
