He’s here. :)
After many long months of waiting, my perfect little nephew arrived this morning at 9:20am. He is a healthy 9 lbs 3 oz, and both the baby and Peeah are doing well. In fact, because she is super woman, she was back at home shortly after lunch. I spoke with her this afternoon and she sounded so happy–tired, but happy. I haven’t met him yet, but I hear my little nephew has reddish blond hair and I’m positive I will absolutely melt when I hold him on Thursday.
(…is it Thursday yet?)
I hate that I’m not with my family right now, but as we were already planning to drive up for the weekend on Thursday, we decided to wait. *sigh* I already know that the next two days will be verrrrrry long for me. As soon as I meet him I’ll get a photo for you so we can all share in his cuteness.
Also, you may or may not have noticed the presence of a new little poll on my sidebar! Yay!! Polls!! HOO HAH!
(Are you excited? I’m excited.)
I’ve decided to take on another challenge for my Thrifty Thursday posts. I had a ton of fun hunting for accessories two weeks ago, and I’d like to do something like that again. So, I’ve come up with five ideas, and I’ll let you make the final decision!
Six Months + Six Dresses*
Last year Kyla ran a series on her blog about her quest to add dresses to her summer wardrobe. So, she took on a challenge to buy one new or thrifted dress each month for six months and found some beautiful pieces. It was such a fun series to read over the summer and I was really sad when it ended. I thought it would be fun to try, so I thought I’d have this as an option!
This would be an extension of the challenge I took on two weeks ago. I could hunt by item or colour, and show ways to jazz up a bland outfit with a little burst of colour and some fun accessories I find in thrift stores.
I’ve seen some pretty fabulous shoes while I’m out thrift shopping, and the turquoise ones I bought are just one example. I’ve thought about hunting for some bright, fun colourful shoes to add to my closet (that is currently a sea of brown, beige and black shoes).
Five Looks + One Shoe*
Alana, the voice behind The Good Girl Gone Blog, recently ran a series on her blog that I LOVED: 1 Shoe, 7 Looks. She took one pair of boots, and created seven different looks and outfits for them. It was such a neat idea, and I think it could be fun to try!
You all know how much I love a good blazer, so I thought about not only shopping for blazers, but wearing them to create both dressy and casual outfits.
So… it’s up to you! Which challenge should I take on first?? The poll is just on the sidebar (right side of the screen).
I finally updated my Blogs I Love* page. Since so many of you lovely writers have made beautiful buttons for your blogs, I decided to use them! Once you’re on the page you can now just click on their button and it will take you right to their site. Isn’t that magical?
I met my new doctor today! Aside from the long wait, I am very happy with her. She is young, outgoing and professional and I liked her immediately. I am SO relieved to finally have a family doctor, and I already have my first physical scheduled for next month. And the best part? Everything happened in just over a month! I am seriously loving Health Care Connect right now.
Well, that just about does it for me, lovelies! I’m exhausted, and very ready for bed.
Two more sleeps until nephew time! :)
