This awesome crafty sign was Matt’s dad gift! It’s from the Bele Chere festival in Asheville that Mark and Cheryl go to every year (and once we did too!) How cool!
I had a bit of a burnin’ rubber afternoon in my automobile. I’m trying to get all kinds of paperwork for the fall complete now so I can spend 99.9% of my time with the baby when he’s here and not worry about household things. I’m renewing my passport that is about to expire and had to run around town getting a new photo made, going to the post office and getting something else notarized this afternoon. Lots of errands this week – and they are now all complete!
After that, our doula came over for a “you’re now on call” meeting! We went over a few labor positions and talked about what to expect. She thinks I will be on time or a few days late. I wish I had a crystal ball! My mom just told me that she was 10 days early and I was 3 days early….is it genetic!?
We had tons of leftovers in the fridge and had “eat what you want” night for dinner. I heated up our Pesto Ricotta Pasta with tomatoes and goat cheese
And Matt had stuffed peppers, veggies, millet, hummus and cheese.
And then I spent the rest of the evening building our baby bird’s nest, one straw at a time.
If you’ve seen my laundry video, you can imagine what the baby’s drawers looked like. I had only washed the newborn stuff and everything else for 3 months and beyond was just thrown in the bottom drawer! Now everything is washed and sorted and packed by size! Just a few weeks ago I wondered if we had enough clothes – and all of a sudden thanks to my friend Katherine’s loan and the new clothes that came today, we’re all set! [Hi Feet!]
We watched the Olympics while I folded, but it’s just not the same now that I know it’s over!
A while later, I made an evening snack that I call a Milkshake Mug Mash!
Take about half a cup of Breyers Vanilla and mix it with about 1/4 cup milk and whatever mixins you like – tonight it was fresh peach. Then you mash it all together into a milkshake with your spoon! Dilute the ice cream, but still get the creamy flavor.
We had planned to go to Fridays tonight, but we just never got our act together to go. I think we both just needed a night in to rest. I’m planning to spend the rest of it reading in bed!
