I also have much more than a suitcase full of anticipation to meet this BabyGirl I've been dreaming about for so long. It's hard to imagine that we'll be meeting this sweet girl so soon.
BabyGirl, even as you enter the world, you've already showing your momma and daddy that you want things done your way and not the way we have planned for you. And that's ok. We love you for it already and can't wait to see what other wonderful things you'll teach us.
And although we're not thrilled about our 6:30am tee time this morning, we're pretty happy that you're making such a scheduled entrance. You know you're momma likes things to be on time. And Daddy hates surprises so lets keep things simple today, okay?
Also, this should allow for a nice late afternoon family snooze today as well. After all, we're going to be a quiet family. And we like to sleep. A lot.
Not sure if you got that memo.
Baby, can you believe this is the very last trip, even if it is only a few miles, that we'll be making as just a couple?
The next time I get in the car I'll be a mother.
Part of a family of three.
Okay four, sorry SweetBoy.

A girl can never be too prepared.
I'm also making cookies. Chocolate chip to be exact. I plan on bribing the nurses with them in exchange for an unusually high dose of morphine with a nice sedative mixed in.
Shaken, not stirred.
I can't wait for y'all to meet some of the fun guests I've got lined up!

Could her life or her rooms be any cooler?
I think not.
I adore the coral and teal color pallette
Such a pretty bedroom. I wish I could peek out onto that Palm Beach balcony and check out the view. I'm sure its as outstanding as the interior.
Hope everyone had a splendid weekend and a bearable Monday.
I'm in the midst of cleanapoolza 2010. I spent all weekend cleaning and organizing and rearranging furniture. Its not nesting, my house was just dirty and needed some help. I also did a lot of decluttering and moving things from "looks great there" to "we'll use it more here". Function over design. Uggh. My sweet little sitting room in the kitchen is gone but we now have a couch and comfy chair in our den where we actually sit and hang out. The color scheme is all wrong of course. The den is Matthew's domain with light blue and khaki colors, not to mention a duck flying proudly on the wall. Isabella (my pink couch) and her pal (the pink & green club chair) look a little out of place in there. They were pretty discouraged when they overheard me mention something about keeping them in that room and having slip covers made to match. But new furniture for that room just isn't in the budget and we're tired of fighting to see who gets to sit in the lone chair while we watch tv. I guess since I'm pregnant I always won this battle and didn't see the predicament as quite so severe. I know it will be nice to have the couch and comfy chair to relax in after as I recooperate.

I can't decide which I love more, her coat or her hair cut.
Don't worry, I know the curse of the preggo who wanted to cut her hair and I have NO plans for chopping off any locks any time soon. I've spent the last 12 months growing out my hair, literally, with no plans to go short in the near future.
I did have hair this short in college and I know I'll go there again one day. Especially since I now know a thing or two about strategically placed bronzer and am in possession of two different bobbi brown shimmer bricks. It does wonders for finding cheek bones. A must with short hair. Or any length hair for that matter. If you don't already use it RUN to your nearest counter and get you some. You can thank me later.
I'm a complete sucker for the ladies at the counter who upsell me the brush to go with the makeup I buy. They swear it perfects the application and I buy it. Their lines and the brushes.

This house totally makes me want to paint all the furniture and walls in my house white and go decorate everything in bright green with pink accents.
to La Dolce Vita for giving me this sweet award!
Thanks girl, you're a Sugar Doll yourself!
