So today, I got a VERY large package at my front door! Guess what it was?
I'll give you a hint... I talked about needing one of these in this, this, and this post on my blog. After taking all of your comments and suggestions into consideration, I half pipe-dreaming-ly registered for it at Target. Since my wonderful friend Marsha is giving me a car seat and 2 bases, and I know it is pink and brown I decided that this one would fit our needs best, and crossed my fingers hoping for a miracle--that someone I know has an extra $224 plus tax that they wanted to spend on this desperately needed gift. A great online friend of mine named Scott (but I know him as potato boyo) from plurk said he wanted to contribute to my baby needs. I gave him my registry link and now a week later, its here! Is the anticipation killing you because you didn't click on any of the 4 links in this paragraph?
So there it is. Beautiful isn't it? I am so happy :) We also ordered my baby shower invitations. If any of you would like to be invited, email me your address and I will mail you one.. but if you just want to see what it looks like, here it is... some of the details have been removed for internet privacy reasons, etcetera :) Or, I can send you a web invite via FB private events.
Also, do you remember that giveaway I told you all you should enter? Well, EVERYONE who entered won, which means you MISSED OUT for not entering... and also means, that I WON!!! What a great day for things falling from the sky.
Other noteworthy events of this week: I got the pack and play set up in my bedroom (you can see it here), which means I cleared enough room in there for it, and also got Joe to move in Eloise's dresser, and went through all the hand-me-downs I have received, organized them by size and put'em in her drawers. I don't have a whole lot of "newborn" sized stuff, but am not sure how long they really stay in that size anyway.. I have a lot more 0-3 and tons more 3-6. My Registry is not very big, but I am going to definitely welcome DIAPER contributions at my Shower.. since we definitely will need those!
Also, I lost my cell phone on Sunday. I cannot lie, I really didn't like that phone, but either way, I looked high and low, even cleaned in a dither to find it (and nest for Eloise) but to no avail. But Joe came home and surprised me with a new phone on Tuesday, and I love it. We are one great big Apple family now.
