-Friday somehow feels a little less exciting when its your 3rd day off school due to the snow storm the other day. Oh, and thanks to the Holiday Monday--I have off then, too. Hello-it's been a 6 day weekend here.
-Nothing gives me warm fuzzies the way it does when I receive a package in the mail *just because*. It seriously makes me feel like a million bucks, and so so special. This week, to my surprise I got a package from my dear blog friend, Kayla. She picked out some beautiful hair bows and a headband for my little girl!! I seriously danced around the kitchen and squealed out of excitement. I am secretly obsessed with all those little headbands with flowers and bows on them (and don't even own any yet)--so Kayla has officially kick-started my obsession. Thank you, my dear friend!
My little unborn girlie can feel the love already, most certainly so did I.
-As you know I took my glucose test this past week, and found out yesterday at my OB appointment (yes, I ventured out--the main roads weren't bad at all!) that I passed with flying colors! woohoo! No diabetes for me.
-I finally had a good jump in my weight gain. According to my appointment I gained another 7lbs. Which, did scare me a little...honestly-but, in the grand scheme of things at 28 weeks I've gained 11 lbs, which still is pretty good. I'm gonna just say little Miss is having a growth spurt :)
-As you know, I participated in my own swap. What the heck, right? I should get to have some fun, too. I received my package this week from the dear Ginger (aka: Mrs. A) and it had some of my favorite candy, a pair of earrings, headband, candle, lip balm(s), and a really cute sign for baby's room. Thank you, hun!
Here it is:ps: i may or may not have eating the sour patch kids before I took this photo.
[SWAP FRIENDS: Come back MONDAY and I'll have up a Mr. Linky where you can link to your post in which you post about your swap package! This way, we can jump around and check out what you got. If yours hasn't come yet, b/c I have had a few people email me only this week claiming they didn't receive their partner info (it went into junk mail!), it's probably on its way!]
-Oh and lastly...when I'm bored (I really shouldn't say "bored", but more or less, trying to avoid other necessary "work") in the house, I do random things....like make Valentines Day-themed cupcakes. Since I didn't have work today, I made some for Declan to take in-and I'll deliver some to my Dad and Mom later too. You like?
The funny thing is....I don't even really eat cupcakes...but making them was fun :)
Happy FRIDAY, loves!
