Im 37 weeks and 3 days
This weekend we ran up to the cities to return a frame to IKEA that was too big before the baby gets here. For some reason, we decided to be brave and let Owen wear underwear. I was a nervous wreck on the way up there. Our first stop was an estate sale. Ian and day went in while Owen and I hung out in the car. They came back with a pile of books and a couple of other trinkets. Ian was happy with his books but a little shocked at how much it cost him. Oh, Owen was still dry!
Our next stop was lunch! Nothing fancy, just Chili's. We stopped off at Target and I got Ady some much needed shoes! Two pairs, one dress and one everyday pair, for only $11!! Score!! We also picked her up a new bookbag. I had a very very hard time walking past a new quilt for our bed. The one on our bed has been there since we got married. I'm ready for a change!
See, that's been my thing lately. Change. Last weekend we went to Ikea for some frames because well, we had some stuff to frame. Ian thought I was half crazy, but I had a piece of scrapbook paper that I wanted to frame. I love it! It's in our living room and looks so good!
Anyway, back to this weekend. We finished up at Target and headed for Ikea. Holy cow. What a zoo! We returned our frame and headed into the madness. Now I could easily spend all day in there but with a husband and two tired kids in tow, it was a quick trip. We picked up a new lamp for the nursery, some light bulbs, and a little footstool for Owen.
When we got home, I set about putting scrapbook paper on letters for the nursery. No, I won't show you pictures mom. :) you'll just have to wait like everyone else.
Today I woke up with the strongest urge to paint the office. I want to paint it gray and put up orange and cream curtains. Sadly, I dont have any paint on hand nor do I think I could have convinced Ian painting was a good way to spend the day. Ha ha. Instead I made waffles for breakfast. Then cleaned the kitchen. Ian put the crib together for me and we put up the nails for her name to be hung. I got the guest room ready and did laundry. Also, Ady and I went to the store and JoAnn Fabrics to get a pillow for another project I'm wanting to do. I don't remember the last time I had this much energy!!
Maybe it's a sign? I'll go into labor a little bit early??? Please??
Oh and Ian made a great dinner tonight... Actually we all helped, but Ian did most of it. He made baked ziti with homemade breadsticks. The breadsticks were great!
