Mia, I will get pictures posted soon. I'm glad you were able to get so much done yesterday, but take it easy! Hopefully that baby can bake for a few more weeks. Yay for time to spend as a family! It doesn't seem like it's ever enough.
I told the kids we were cleaning the house this morning, then we are baking for tomorrow. I have vacuumed most of the house, but had to take a break cuz I was hurting...and now I just want a nap. Ugh! Oh well. Maybe I will finish cleaning and sneak in a nap before we start baking--just 30 minutes would make a world of difference.
I know just how you feel Lisa! We did the same stuff at our house today. I had a long to do list and plans to get done early but had to stop and take a nap. We did finally get the house clean but have just now started baking. I might be up a little late tonight trying to get everything done. Hope you got a nap and are feeling good enough to enjoy your baking time with the kids!
Was laying in bed last night, with DH facing away from me, and I was cuddled up behind him, and baby was kicking like crazy. DH says to me "it's kicking so hard I'm getting a back massage out of it! How on earth do you sleep with it kicking like that?!" SLEEP?!!?! What's sleep???!!!! I haven't slept for so long, I think I forget what that is!
Hahaha Amanda that is too funny of DH!
Taylor - I hope you get some good finds on the lightening deal(s)! I LOVE Amazon for everything I can't get "local". We got a new co-sleeper mini to replace DD's because while it's in great shape, one of the top support bars busted a while back. DH was able to fix it until he broke it down to move (it folds up like a PnP). The TRU we went to doesn't usually carry the co-sleepers but someone had received one as a shower gift and didn't want it so they returned it to Concord. Without our asking, the manager gave it to us for 15% off just to "get it off his hands" so that's a huge relief! That was the main thing we needed to get before this LO arrives. I'm excited to set it up tomorrow. I also ordered/made our Christmas cards yesterday through WalMart. I usually get them through Shutterfly but some of the designs on WalMart's site were exactly the same. It's nice to check things off the holiday to-do list!
Carters.com is having a "50%" off sale, which just means they're taking 50% off their MSRP that no one ever pays anyways. You have to search too hard. I really need some baby girl clothes though- some fleece sleepers, a bunch of pants, a few socks. I have some onesies and gowns.
I missed my deal 20 minutes before it went live, the seller upped the price so when the deal hit, the price was $10 MORE than it had been all day long! I was pissed. I still am. It was a Razer gaming mouse DH has been eyeing for a long time.
I managed to get The Lorax (3.99), both Nick Jr Big Box of Playdates ($22), the first season Once Upon a Time ($19), and Assassin's Creed III ($34). I also had about $20 worth of Swagbucks giftcards loaded to my account so I ended up getting really good deals.
My mom is getting Brandon a Leappad Explorer for Christmas so instead of getting him a kitchen, we're going to get the accessories and games and app cards for him. I'm really irritated with my inlaws though- I found out at Thanksgiving my FIL went and bought him a ************ BIKE. A BIKE. Not a tricycle- a mini bike with training wheels. I'm pissed because we had told them we were getting him a trike for his birthday in February. I'm not speaking to my FIL right now because I've figured out it's him talking my MIL into all these firsts that were mine, not her. My SIL is upset too, she thinks the bike is too much for him. And I agree. He's not even 3 and it's freezing. And a *************** BIKE. Way to upstage us.
I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving! We had a pretty relaxing day spent with the in-laws. I did NOT go Black Friday shopping, but I have ordered some things online and we are almost done shopping for our kids. I just need to get a few books and make sure I have picked up all the stocking stuff I need for them. Then I just need to get the gift cards for all the extended family--we are being very uncreative this year and going simple with gift cards. And then all I have left is DH...and I don't know what to get him!
