I am in LOVE with my girlfriends

My wonderful friends threw me the worlds most spectacular baby shower over the weekend. I'm still in awe of their talent and creativity. I spent my entire ride home telling Koka how blown away I was, and how every single detail was truly perfect. Everyone was so generous, and Koka and I now have a living room full of fabulous baby goodies.

Here are just a few pictures of the shower. Really, there are no words...

No real updates

Just a picture of me from last week.


Looking large and in charge...

PSA - If you're pregnant

If you're pregnant, and it feels like your labia may explode

You could have varicose veins of the vulva.

Just saying.

Oh, and if you have said pain - don't bring your DH to the OB appointment where you ask about it and your Dr tells you to invest in a "Vulva belt"... or female jock strap. Because if your DH is anything like mine, fun making will ensue.

Nursery purchases

Well I may have been pretty absent from my blog over the last few weeks, but my credit card has been working hard!

K and I (ok, who am I kidding, mostly me) finally picked out and ordered a bunch of stuff for the baby's room. I'm giddy to start putting it all together. That is, after I finish painting the million inches of crown molding and window trim throughout the house - but that's a story for another day...

Anywho - here is what I've picked up:

This rug from PB. I went with the 5x8, which is little on the small side - but I'm hoping with all the furniture in, it will look fine.

Our glider from Room and Board. It was kind of a splurge - which is why I waited so long to get it. But I actually think it's cute enough that I can move it to another room in the house when baby outgrows the nursery. Of course, it won't be here until a week or so before baby is due. Just call me the queen of procrastination. :)

And I actually didn't get the ottoman. I got this super fun one instead. (I had a hard time gliding in the chair if I used the ottoman.) I need something more stable.

I found this picture a few months ago - and it's what gave me the idea. (Well the photo planted the idea. the fabulous Becki at SMC gave me the nudge I needed. Thank you Becki!)

Now, the closer I look at it - the more I think that's my glider in the picture...

I also picked up the bedding I think I like from RH Baby and child. But, I didn't want a white crib skirt - so I mixed and matched sets. I have NO idea if I'll like it when it actually gets here. We'll see. But since I'm just not sure how I feel - and Target was offering free shipping. I went ahead and pick up this set as well.

I actually like it a LOT better in person than in the picture. It's a really pretty light blue.

So, again. We'll see. One set HAS to go back.

Ok, really?

Target has the Britex Marathon Carseat (in a nice normal grey color), for only $43. And free shipping.

Pick it up here before they're gone!

Ok, it looks like it's already gone. (Along with a video monitor they had listed for $12.94! I wish I knew about that one.)

Of course, the inwebs are blowing up saying it's an error Target will not be honoring. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

I suck at blogging

It's true. I'm lame.

Sadly, I'm only here to wish Heather and Jeffrey lots of love. And to ask that they find comfort after the tragic loss of their sweet baby Grace at 38 weeks.

I'll be back later when I'm better able to compose my thoughts.
