First Registry Gift!

June 11, 2012

Happy Monday! We had a pretty low key weekend around here. I stayed busy by working on painting projects, making cookies, and cleaning the house. It was 90 degrees here yesterday....what is going on??? Pregnancy and heat do not mix well at all! We stayed cool by staying inside and going to the movies. (We saw The Lorax at the discount theater....some of it was cute, but don't waste your time on this one.)

But the most exciting thing was that our first baby registry gift arrived! Our stroller! It was a gift from my aunt and uncle, who were like second parents to me growing up. My aunt and I have a close relationship and since she has a son she has always treated me like her daughter. 

We chose the Baby Jogger City Select. In red of course! Wrigley is still a little scared of it, so we'll have to practice walking with it before the baby comes. We walk at least once every day ,and often twice, so we needed a good stroller that would hold up to our activity level. 

Guess who was not scared of the stroller? Sophie hopped in while I was putting it together. She LOVES the stroller. 

In other news.....True Blood is back! Who's excited???? The first episode is waiting for me in my DVR...I can't wait!

This is random, but my mom and I stopped at a couple of antique stores on Friday and I saw this and fell in love. I have no where to put it but I like it. I might have to make something similar soon!

How was your weekend?

  8. yay for your stroller!! and dont worry, wrigley will get used to it quick. he'll only get hit by it a few times and then he'll be an angel on walks (i know this from experience). if you practice before baby arrives please creep people out and put a plastic baby in there :)
