Things that caught my eye

I found this cute idea on and for someone like myself who is constantly writing to-do list, I was in geeky paradise.

What To Do Pad
A notebook featuring three separate colored pads to organize "to do" lists by: Shop/Call/Do or Buy/Contact/Do
Keep lists organized by task

Also because a few of my close friends are pregnant (side note- and my sister...I'm going to be an AUNT!) I've been eyeing registries and found this cute boy theme for a nursery. Ah, Matie...

Certaintly a son of Dave's would dig this room! I love it too.

I've been browsing childrens photographers for inspiration and found this adorable shot. It says so much about how a child looks at the world. If you've seen Knocked Up, then you might remember the scene where the two men are talking about how they wish they could love anything as much as children love bubbles.

Jen's Wedding

It was a great day! I know every bride stresses just a little right before she's about to walk down the aisle in front of everyone, especially if you're a bit shy like my sister. She did great and right when she was standing next to Kevin, everything was just about that moment. I know shes been waiting for the day it could be "official" for a while and I'm glad she had that day with our family, his family and ONE BIG family now. It's so weird to say I have a brother now (Dave didn't give me any sibling-in-laws) so thats neat to say I have a brother now and his twin brother, Jason, through marriage. Can't wait to be an aunt and see if they have quads (by Kevins math thats what he's expecting, haha). Jen- things are all finally worked out and I hope going forward we continue to work on our sisterly relationship with as much happiness as we do now. I love you.

A pregnancy craving story I thought was pretty funny.

"Early in my pregnancy I had many cravings. I craved ice cream, mashed potatoes, Caesar salad, and I especially craved kosher dill pickles. One evening, I opened up the refrigerator and found that we were out of pickles, but fortunately the jar still remained in the refrigerator. So, I stood there and drank the pickle juice straight from the jar! I would have gotten away with it, but my husband caught me in the act and poured the rest of the pickle juice right down the drain."

I didn't really crave anything when I was pregnant. It's funny how your tastebuds change though because I wanted nothing with flavor. Yes, plain chicken, mashed potatoes and corn was really all I could keep down-safely. Forget about fruit juices and anything with red sauce. I hope thats not the case next time I'm pregnant. I really want to be able to eat anything and no morning sickness...please?!
