Tags:
I didn't do a lot this weekend, but I think it was just the right balance (aka - no housework!). Saturday hubby headed in to work at some ungodly hour, and I shifted my butt from the new bed to the living room couch. I managed to fall asleep out there and was almost late for my babysitting gig over at Stella's. She and Willy had the year-end softball tournament to participate in, so I pitched in by watching the little dude in the afternoon. I got to feed the little man his first taste of squash, and I'm sure if my sister ever gets her butt in gear, I'll be able to post pics of the event. I'm not sure how much ended up up his nose compared to in his mouth, but I'm fairly sure I didn't get any in his ears.

On Saturday I also managed to complete the Baby Einstein coat and as soon as I get those pesky seams finished I will post pics. I'm now working on matching Sheepy Pants, because I truly do want my daughter to look like a blueberry.

Sunday hubby and I got up early and after some awesome strawberry pancakes, we headed to the Baby Boom Show. I'm sure I'll regret signing up for all the 'free' draws I did, but I managed to get some really good info from a couple of shops in town that I had wanted to visit, and I found a local woman that does belly casts and belly bowls. I need to have one of those. I managed to miss the doulas, who I was really hoping to talk to, but hubby mentioned that they appeared to be really pushy and would have completely turned him off the idea.

We did a little bit of on-line furniture shopping after the show, and I think we have a couple of stores to check out in our never-ending quest (I know it just started, but I also know how long it takes hubby and I to find something we both like)

Once we got home we watched The Lady in the Water, and while it was nothing like I thought it would be, we both really enjoyed it. I knit like a madwoman the entire afternoon and evening and finally managed to make up the garment that I was lagging behind. I also heard from one of the 'wits that she has located her koigu stash and has it ready to donate to my soaker project. Sweet! Hubby cooked up a tonne of butter chicken which was fantastic. We tried the new President's Choice naan, which I'm not that thrilled with. I really should just make a batch of it, but I've been saying that about chocolate chip cookies for the past 3 months too! Now that I have a bit of breathing room with the knitting I may try either some baking or some scrapbooking tomorrow night.
Who does she think she is?

It's an Indian dish, also called murgh makhani. Chicken in a spiced tomato cream sauce. Yummy.

I was hoping it was just chicken in a giant vat of butter. Damn.

Okay-thank God I wasn't the only one wondering what the "butter chicken" was, but now that you've explained it....it does sound yummy!

LoL-remember the days when you would lay on the couch and find it utterly uncomfortable? These days it just seems like you are able to sleep just about anywhere. Ahhhh~baby making is a hard thing to do...it really gets a mommy tired. I loved the baby shows! So many neat things. Is your little girl going to have her own little room? What color? What theme? Hey! I haven't heard any names being mentioned. OMgoodness! I cannot believe how time is flying. I can see you knitting like a mad woman. You must snap a picture of the Einstein baby coat~sounds sooo cute.

Okay-now get back to relaxing and remember to drink and eat plenty of yummy stuff.

i have been catching up on you lj, i am soo glad things are going well with you and the baby! i have been very busy, but i have thought of you and the baby often. i always get worried about my pregnant lj friends (which i always seem to have a lot) when i can't get the time to catch up on my friends list. you understand i am sure. all my pregnant friends have tried so hard to get that way. i try to at least look at their ljs when i can. anyway it sounds like you are having fun getting ready for baby. i have missed everyone but i am still really pressed for time. sooo i am just checking in and sending you and the baby hugs!!
