A spring in my step

I thought I’d do a happy post today after so many that are a little more on the downer side. So how about some things I’m excited about?

  • My mom is in town for the weekend! It’s the first time I’ve seen her since last Christmas, so I’m totally thrilled she’s here, even if it’s only for a few days. My mom is super cool, and like I said last week, sometimes a girl needs her mom around.
  • The nursery is done being painted, and OMG, it’s entirely too cute for words. N.C. has been working on it for about 2-3 weeks, and he finally finished it up yesterday, and I just might die from the cuteness. I’ll post pictures probably next week, because…
  • The crib bedding should be here by Monday! We got the bedding custom made by a seller on Etsy, and the pictures I’ve seen are too adorable. I can’t WAIT to see it in person. Once we have it, we’ll take some photos of the nursery since it will be about 90% done by that point.
  • Since my mom is in town, we’re getting stocked up on baby stuff. She hasn’t even been here 24 hours and she’s already bought the little man a trunk full of supplies. We had to drag her away from the Target baby section last night (we went to Target for creamer and a watch battery). We tried to tell her no, but since this is her first grandkid, we apparently have no say in the matter. Resistance is futile, so we’ll graciously accept her gifts. Although I hope she doesn’t follow through with the threat to buy all the noisiest toys she can lay her hands on since she won’t be around to have to listen to them…
  • My 3 biggest projects at work have all been approved, with budget set aside, and work has started on them. My goal was to have these in the works before I have this kid, so they can be in progress while I’m on maternity leave, and I managed to accomplish that. Everything is rolling along on them, and I’m super proud to say that I was able to get them started after 2 years of battling for them. It’s also nice to show all my coworkers/bosses that just because I’m pregnant doesn’t mean I’m checked out–I think that knowledge will go a long way during my maternity leave.
  • I won tickets to see Julie & Julia next week–yay for free movies (and air conditioning)!
  • It’s Friday, it’s cooler outside, and I’ve got a wonderful weekend in front of me. What’s not to be excited about today?

Have a great weekend everyone!

Love hearing you so happy!

Happiness is good! Sometimes I just want my mom–even though she only lives an hour away in Bulverde, I feel like I never get to see her with her work schedule.

Anyway, I can’t wait to see pictures of the nursery!

No matter if she buys only one loud toy, it will no doubt become the favorite.
