Primping for the party.... I have a hair cut today and I was going to dye my hair too. The more I think about the hair dye though I am going to pass. I have gone 8 months with out it, 1 more month isn't going to make a huge difference and then I'll have to worry about maintenance after the lil' baby arrives. I also have had reactions to hair dye in the past, I would just hate it if something happened. I am going to try and squeeze in a manicure this weekend - although that may be more of a wish than reality. Since there is some family coming in, we have a party the day before the shower too - craziness!! I also ordered about 5 dresses that will be waiting for me from target when I get home tonight to try on. I have a backup outfit planned out just in-case (pants and a silk top). I wanted to wear a dress but I didn't really find any in a store that were particularly flattering. It's really annoying that most maternity is offered online only. So, we shall see what works.
I am super excited to get things set up in the nursery, and have the vision start coming together. Since, by nature I am a visual learner and it's hard to imagine how things will look until I can see them. I am excited to get the bedding set up and start decorating. I have been holding off getting lots of things to see what I will get at the shower first. Some of my friends have asked me what I am most excited to receive - I'm just happy to get everything. It's all feeling like it's coming together easily and quickly now.
On a side note: I have made some adjustments in my decorating scheme - the frugal part of me took over and I just could not spend $200.00 on a set of mirrors... but I think I found something just as nice. I will post a "grand reveal" hopefully sometime next week.
I keep saying that the last 2 months have flown past. I feel like I only really started to look pregnant. My plan was
It's also really exciting to feel these big movements that I can feel now. I always described that movement in the past as "popping bubbles" now - it's like I feel an elbow jabbing me! It's really fun - and exhausting.
My body is starting to feel really tired and putting on shoes has become a hilarious spectacle to watch. I just hope to get some sleep each night which has also been somewhat of an issue.
Here is looking forward to the WEEKEND!!!
