Look What I Made!!!

I am really excited about this! Here is my first elephant painting for the baby room. I decided to paint them on 24" x 30" canvases instead of directly on the wall due to my history of moving furniture around. Now I can keep them forevers - or maybe even sell them one day. Okay, okay give them away, but at least they can get lots of enjoyment. Not to mention it was a lot easier than painting on the wall and I could sit! ;) Which is very important these days. I absolutely cannot wait to hang this up! Yay!! 8 weeks and 5 days to baby time! It's coming up so fast, but I think the nesting thing has kicked in again giving me some much needed energy. Though all I want to do is paint, vacuum, do laundry, and admire all my cute baby things when what I really need to be doing is writing salesforce code. yuck. Or sleeping. But how can one sleep when there are adorable elephants to be made?

2 Dogs?!? Are You Effing Kidding Me??!!??

In short. Yes. It has been a while since I have last written because I have been a bit distracted by all that is going on. We were on vacation in Seattle and our poor puppy Annabelle (who mainly went by Puhpeh!) passed away due to complications from corn cob ingestion while she was at day care. Greg and I have been extremely sad, but trying to focus on happy baby things such as my upcoming shower and moving the crib from wall to wall to determine where it will look best. It is much too late to get a new puppy - get her potty trained and deal with all the constant supervision they need plus an infant. And I know I will be too busy and excited with the new baby to even think about wanting a puppy in a few months, but I kinda still do. I miss my little pup lots. Maybe daddy will get Liam a pup for his first birthday. Especially if I still have baby weight to loose since I know I'll get double the workout chasing a toddler and a pup around the house 24/7. Regardless of when or if we ever do get another pup, we will always miss and remember our dear sweet little Annabelle. She had a great little life and was very well loved! Especially by her big brother Colbert!

Baby Clothes are NOT Gay!!!

So I can't ever become famous or I will have to apologize for using the word gay in this way - publicly - on the internet for life. But just for the record I am not the one that said it... And yes, this little outfit is rainbow colored and fruity, but it's also A-FREAKING-DORABLE!!! And I love it sooo much! When I am having a bad day or even getting a little freaked about the whole concept of a B-A-B-Y, I like to go peek in the closet at some of the adorable little outfits I have gotten (myself). How can anything that can wear something this cute be anything but perfect??? Besides all baby clothes are a little queer because they are for babies - little itty bitty tiny cute babies. I am sorry dear husband that our baby's clothes are not manly enough for you, but I promise not to paint his nails like Whit's friend did to her little boy. (And by Whit's friend I am obviously referring to the woman in the j. crew catalog - I just have a feeling that they are all her friends, even if they don't know it...)
Though that promise only counts if you are in the same area code.
Just kidding...

kind of...

Tum! Tum, tum, tum, TUMMMSSS!

Tum! Tum, tum, tum, TUMMMSSS! That’s the tune that has been playing in my head all day every day. Before I eat, while I eat, after I eat, in my sleep. The makings of a pregnancy Dr. Seuss book! We can title it Mommy has Heartburn. By Doctah Gee. Except I’m not a doctor, but I’m pretty sure Dr. Seuss wasn’t either so I think we are all set. Though on the bright side (look at me! I’m all optimistic and shit!), Tums are a fabulous source of calcium! Okay maybe not fabulous, but for someone that hates milk and has to trick herself into drinking it by mixing it with Fruit Loops, (GM cereals actually have a lot of vitamins nowadays so don’t knock me until you read the label) Tums are actually pretty okay. I guess to be specific I am not taking Tums, I am taking Walgreens antacid tablets because honestly who can tell the difference and that yellow price tag that says save $1.00 always gets me. Though checking out went a little like this…
Me: “I’m sorry I don’t have my CVS card on me.” (which was a lie I later found out…oops)
Cashier: “That’s okay because this isn’t CVS...” (she didn’t really make it feel okay though if you know what I mean)
Me: “Oops, sorry I bet that happens a lot” (or at least I hope that happens a lot…)
Cashier: *whatever look*
Me: *fake fumbling in purse* “I don’t have my Walgreen’s card on me either…”
Cashier: “Well, that’s good because we don’t have cards” (again – didn’t really feel like a good thing if you follow me)
Me: “Oh…Okay…Sorry, it’s been a long day” What I wanted to say: w/e (<- hip internet lingo for the common slang whatever) lady I’m flipping pregnant, ob-vi-ous-ly, now give me my flipping tums before I EAT YOU!!!
I really need to stop with the eating people comments or ya’ll are going to think I have a problem. (Yes I know it’s spelled y’all, but I prefer ya’ll so get over it)
On a side note about old internet slang, can someone please explain to people over 40 that YAY! Is spelled Y-A-Y and not Y-E-A-H, or Y-E-A.
Synonyms: Yippie!
Definition: I’m super excited about that.
Sentence: YAY! I win!!! (okay not really a sentence, but whatevs – whatevs: another slang for whatever)
Synonyms: What? Or Yes!
Definition: Nicest way a teenager can say what, response to hearing your name, or an agreement.
Sentence/short story: Mom: “KATHRYN!!!???” Me: “WHATTTT???” Mom: “Don’t say WHHAAATTT!!!” Me: “….” Mom: “KATHRYN???” Me: “Yea? What?” (Story is from the past – I am most definitely not a teenager)
Also: Greg: “Hey, Kari do you want me to pick up some more Tums on my way home from work?” Me: “Yea, thanks so much sweet muffin pie!”
See what I did there? Ended back on Tums! That took SKILL with a K!
I believe this concludes today’s post. Thanks for hanging in there!
