Fun Finds

So in preparations for Macy's arrival, we pretty much did a complete overhaul of the house this past weekend. The main thing we needed to do was get all the JUNK (and when I say JUNK, I do mean JUNK) out of the junk bedroom so that we could convert it to her nursery. And boy did we have some junk in the trunk. We threw out a TON of trash (and recycling!).

I just had share with you our most amusing finds that I'm not sure we will be able to part with solely due to their hilarity factor. I'm sure Burin thought he was the bomb dot com with these high-tech gadgets. Check out this cell phone and laptop (circa 1997?)!!

The laptop has to weigh like.. 13 pounds (and is about two inches thick), and the cell phone isn't much lighter. I mean, I'm pretty sure he communicated with aliens with this thing.

Misread signs by Brandi

There's a store around the corner from here called Material Possessions. Every time I see the store name I get a little excited thinking it says Maternal Possessions... (omg it's a new maternity clothing store!)

Then I saw a billboard the other day advertising a casino in Vicksburg, and in big letters it said "Mystery Points." At first glance I swear I thought it said "Maternity Pants," and again got excited and was like "where?! ....... oh.."

Can you tell I'm in desperate need of somewhere else to shop for maternity clothes? I don't like it when I get let down like that.

I still can't get used to it

It seems like almost every place of business I go into these days, someone is asking how far along I am, or when I am due.

I walked in the bank yesterday and the teller was like, "when are you due?" I thought she said "what do you do?" and I must have had this "come again?" look on my face (I mean, what business of it was hers what I do?), so she asked again. It finally registered, and I was like, "oh, in March." :)

Then I was in the produce section of Wal*Mart the other day and this old man comes right up next to me and asks, "how soon?" And again, I must've had this "huh..?" look on my face (you can't blame me here, it was an odd question), so he asked again. I said, "two more months."

"Whaddja order?"

"A girl." :)

And he walked off. It was kinda funny.

Maybe one of these days it won't catch me off-guard when someone asks. I guess maybe I still can't believe I'm pregnant. Or I "forget" that my belly is growing to noticeable proportions.

And I feel like my legs are getting shorter. Maybe that's because I can't see all of them when I look down.

Baby Bedding

Ok, after MUCH searching for baby bedding, I think I have found it! You can click on the photos for a larger view and more detail.

**Update: It has officially been ordered! Yay! I actually got something done!

(I only wish her nursery could look like this!)

And here's a matching lamp and organizer:
