Thursday came too fast this week. Why is it when you need the days to go by slowly, because you have so much to do, that they move in fast forward? I think I may just pretend that I am this busy all the time so my weeks go by at this pace!
**********First, I can't believe it is going to be May this weekend. I am very happy to be moving toward warmer weather and getting my kiddos out and about. Nate needs it. He is driving me batty with his pent up energy. I need it. I am as pale as a ghost and am sure my vitamin D level is at an all time low. Arielle needs it. Ok, she doesn't know she needs it, but she hasn't had enough fresh air in her short little life yet!!
**********I participated in a consignment sale last week. I didn't sell as much as I'd hoped (only 52 items out of 180), but I made more money than I spent so I am calling it a success. I got some great things (pictures to come later). I ended up with 5 or 6 Gymboree dresses or outfits for the girl and 2 pairs of shoes (Red Mary Janes and pink ones too that make my heart flutter !) that were brand new with tags for 5 or 6 bucks each. There wasn't much in the way of 3T stuff, but I got Nate a bunch of 4T shirts for later. Yes, I know, I shop way too far in advance. Don't tell the hubby that I have a coat for the girl that is a 3T. Ha!
**********I made cake pops last night. Let me tell you, it is way harder than it looks. Well, the baking of the cake and getting them to the naked pop stage is not so difficult, but the dipping was a little rough. I microwaved the candy to melt it, but next time I think I'll use a makeshift double boiler. It might work better. They turned out cute I will have to post pictures of them later too. I fear I will be obsessed with these cute little things and will be making them for all occassions! Nate kept calling them "surf pops". I have no idea why and now he wants "Spiderman surf pops" for his birthday.
**********Tomorrow morning I will be waking up at 4am to get myself and the baby to the airport. Shoot me now. Our flight leaves at 6ish and we're heading to Northern California to visit my grandma. She hasn't met Arielle yet and has been scaring me by going in and out of the hospital 5 times already since January. I would be crushed if anything happened and she hadn't met her, so it's a girl's weekend for us. If you have any suggestions for flying, ALONE, with an infant pass them along. I'm hoping she nurses and sleeps the whole time. A pipe dream. I know.
**********Today it is officially 4 weekes until the amazing BabyMama comes to little Rhody to enrapture us with her photography skills! I am beyond excited, not only to have another family session that includes the baby OUTSIDE of my belly, but to spend time with someone who became a friend in a matter of hours the first time we met. Sometimes I think it's not fair that I meet such amazing women by blogging and they all have to live so far away. Fortunately, I get to meet Brooke as well since she will be driving all the way here from MI! Ahh, my very own blogging conference...without all of the hoopla!
