top ten things I've done lately

Friends, if you miss me half as much as I've missed you then we're in business... let me just get the "I suck at blogging and life" pity-party out of the way.

Okay. Donewiththat.

Here's what I've been up to since we last spoke.

1.) Convinced hubs to let me paint over the creepy M & M people in our nursery-to-be. (As you may recall, this wall art is leftover from the previous home owners.)

2.) Driven to Goodwill 6523 times and donated about 531213 pounds of clothes and other trivial junk lovely home decor.

3.) Cleaned out EVERYTHING from the baby's room... except for the furniture. After one more trip to Goodwill and pick-up from Cedar Lake Lodge (we're getting rid of a full sized bed, a random could-be-a-breakfast-table table, and a few other large items) I'll be ready to move the furniture out of the room and it will be empty and ready for painting! (Yeah, no. I'm not moving furniture. I'll have someone else do that.)

4.) Mostly, completed my registry. Asked my co-workers if they'd prefer an invite to my baby shower or, and I quote myself, "if they'd prefer to do their own thing for me."

5.) Somehow, avoided coming off as a heinous gift-hungry snob when I breached this topic of conversation.

6.) Wondered if Wished someone from Ergo Baby Carrier (or one of their competitors) might read this and send me a product to review.

7.) Gained another 6.5 pounds. (Well, probably.)

8.) Sucked it up and purchased a boppy pillow from a consignment sale. (I mean, I paid $10 for it... and I can just register for a new slipcover.)

9.) Cried random-hormonal-pregnant tears only ONCE. (Thankyouverymuch.)

10.) Had the following conversation with hubs... enjoy:

Hubs: I don't care what you name her... I'm calling her Penny.

Amber: You can call her whatever you want, but you'll be calling her that every other weekend.

Will you blame it on mommy-brain if I mention that there's no "spice" whatsoever in this post...?

Congrats on the impending arrival, good lady! :)
