Surprise, surprise: The nursery/guest room projects have been delayed a week on account of a shipment delay. (Doors and door frames.) There may have been some tears shed over this, haha, but I’ve fully recovered and I’m focusing on decor to distract myself. ;) The furniture/decor for the nursery has mostly been settled, but the guest room? Woo-ee. Just started thinking about it!
I’ll admit that running the blog has a been a little bit of a challenge this week–which is probably pretty evident to you guys, as I’m just now getting this post up and it’s 1 p.m., haha. But our friends Katie and Darren arrived yesterday, and we had SO much catching up to do! :)
Woo! First ball game of the season for us. Unfortunately, the Cubs aren’t in town for Tara and Mike’s visit, but we did get to see the White Sox play last night. While they didn’t do so well, the whole experience screamed summer, and brought me back to happy times at Yankee Stadium and watching the Trenton Thunder at Arm & Hammer Park. Of course, I couldn’t have a hot dog or a beer, but whatever. Soon enough, right?! ;)
How is possible that I’m in my ninth month of pregnancy?! In some ways, it feels like I’ve been preggo forever. Yet in other ways, I can’t believe how quickly the time has flown by. And yet I’m ready. Not in the literal sense of the word, of course. (Still need to pick up some last-minute things, have those pesky doors installed, set up the nursery furniture, and pack my hospital bag. And Baby Larkin is still cookin’!) But I can’t wait to be a mom and actually meet our baby.
There are some amazing sales going on today, so I thought I’d share my picks from a few of my favorites. ;) Definitely daydreaming about fitting into normal clothing over here, but I’ll just have to live vicariously through you guys! My eyes are on these pumps (which I’m actually featuring next week!), this dress, this bag, this satchel (swoon!), and this robe (for the hospital). Did you swoop up anything good?!

I truly can’t thank you enough for your kind, supportive and understanding messages after yesterday’s panicked post. I was undoubtedly having a rough day, and the hormones were off their rockers. ;) But really: thank you! Things are coming together; I think I was just too overwhelmed to see that. (Also, I wrote that post at night, and I’m definitely one of those people who tends to melt down when tired.)
I know. I’m huge. ;) But today marks 35 weeks, which means I only have five weeks left!
Things are starting to get real. While I’m beyond excited, I’d be lying if I said I’m totally calm over here. There’s just so much to do. I realize that this is a very typical feeling to have in the third trimester, and I know that I’m not exactly rational right now. I also understand that “nesting” occurs when you want to control a situation that’s very much out of your control.
