I found a few maternity items that I would actually look forward to purchasing. I had no idea that Ann Taylor had a maternity line.


Now we are getting somewhere :-)

Catching Up....

You would think it would be easier to write a blog post the longer you are away from the computer. Not so...I actually have so much I could say that I actually really don't have a clue of where to start.

Colin's Party: Went totally awesome...we had loads of help of which we are very grateful and Colin had such a good time that he said, "thank you for paying for my party." My heart completely melted. For him to say thank you and realize how expensive he is at the same time...well that was just priceless :-) Even though this party hardly cost of anything I'll save that thank you for the next one.

Baby Faust: Well I have one more thing to forget to take with me somewhere. My One Touch Meter. I have Polycystic Ovaries and I'm insulin resistant...hence the trouble in getting pregnant, so as a precaution I essentially pretend to have Gestational Diabetes from day one. So I am counting carbs and testing my blood sugar four times a day. I'm being extremely well behaved so hopefully I can avoid taking insulin this time like I needed to with Colin. A girl can dream!

Maternity Clothes Shopping: Oh don't even get me started on this topic. Maternity clothes are such a racket! Motherhood Maternity is a monopoly of crap that they peddle in more than one department store. Seriously, I am having a tough time getting dressed every morning and cannot wait for my Gap Maternity order to arrive. I just wish there were more options that I could actually try on instead of having to order. Did I say that a girl can dream?

So if anyone has any tried a true stops on the Maternity Clothes wagon PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, let me know. Any great websites? My next quest will be looking for a swimsuit, OY!

Long Time No Blog :-)

I can't get over how quickly time flies when you are sleeping.

I turned 29.

Matt turned the big 3-0.

And Colin will be 5 in a week and a half.

Hmmm, I wonder if I can pull off planning a birthday party in one week?

I have a feeling that I am about to find out :-)

Just reposting this layout that was seen in February's Scrapbook Trends.


Did anyone see the March/April issue of Creating Keepsakes? Colin has the cutest photo in it with some of his friends from school. It's in the Reader's Gallery section with an appropriate title considering how all of the kids are dressed, lol!

Well I gotta run, I have to work out, go to the grocery store and consume 30grams of carbs before dinner. Sounds like a piece of cake....however there will be no cake involved.
