Saturday Projects


Got a ton of stuff done today! Including finally finishing the wall letters for Little Miss A's room. But don't get too excited, A and D are the two letters we already let spill at the baby shower, so if you think you are getting some kind of special treat, you are wrong! LOL

The morning started off with Ben and I heading out to drop some clothes to donate off at the local thrift store that benefits a domestic violence program that helps women get out of bad situations, which is where I always bring the stuff I need to pass along.

Once we were done there, we drove through McDonald's for a special chicken nugget treat, which he fell asleep eating. Super cute if you ask me... And then off to the craft store we went. I originally was going to use scrap book paper to cover the wall letters, but I decided to hand paint them instead, which I think worked out kinda well.

I am a perfectionist, so I am not 100% happy with them, but the imperfections I can see, no one else will be able to once I hang them.

After that we headed to Old Navy, yes... we braved crossing the Post Road in Milford on a Saturday... and let me tell you... PEOPLE ARE INSANE! Apparently red lights are optional today!

I had to see if I could find something to wear to Getting Gorgeous in New York City this weekend. Of course I am still playing things by ear at this point depending on how the ultrasound on Wednesday goes. But basically Getting Gorgeous is an invite only blog party for the day where 300 bloggers are pampered by awesome companies, and get one-on-one time with rep's from big companies. Some of the companies this year include Degree, BJ's Wholesale, Simply Orange, Sandals, etc.

So anything that can give me a day of rest, relaxation, and pampering, I am down with!

In the end I found a super cute and spring like shirt I liked, and of course matched a pair of sunglasses, and new bag for the trip. And my new business cards came in yesterday, so I am really ready. I will be traveling with Courtney from OneBoredMommy and can't wait!

Anyways, now to figure out what is for dinner since Will and Camden are still napping, and Ben is certainly ready for food!
