8 Weeks Left

I’m 32 weeks today (as I write this but I’ll probably be closer to 33 weeks when it posts…YAY!) so that means I have 8 weeks left of baking this baby.  I’m liking the way 8 weeks sounds.  Much better than 2 months or 50 something days.  I’m feeling huge but now I’m only going to get bigger.  I’m not quite sure how much bigger I can get but I know I will.  The kicking has stopped for the most part but the rolling all around happens frequently.

My First Just Between Friends Consigning Experience

I’ve been shopping at my local Just Between Friends (JBF) Consignment Sale since Munchkin was born in 2012.  I’ve gotten some great deals and I always enjoy going.  This time though, I decided to take the plunge and consign some of Munchkin’s stuff that we weren’t using.  I like to pass clothes on to friends with who are smaller than Munchkin since I’ve had so many given to me.  I mostly wanted to sell our pocket diapers since I don’t want to use them with Punkin.  I know I could sell them on my local cloth swap page and not have to share the profits but I didn’t want to have to meet twenty different people on twenty different days and drag Munchkin with me.  So consigning at the JBF sale made sense to me!

A New Floor

When we bought our house four years ago, it had all new floors.  The whole downstairs had carpet as did the two bedrooms on the main floor.  The carpet downstairs got taken up pretty quickly after the washer flooded.  It took us awhile to replace it (but it’s finally all laminate now and looks great!) The rug came out of Munchkin’s room before she was born and we replaced that as well (two years ago!)  So all that was left was the nasty rug in our bedroom.  It’s had cats throw up on it and dogs poop on it.  It was just GROSS.  I really don’t like carpet very much but I dealt with it because well, it’s what was there and was working for the most part.

Visiting the 9/11 Memorial

It was a cold December morning when we visited the 9/11 memorial.  We were in New York City for a day and a half and we were visiting because it was the one place on my must visit list for the short time we were in town.  I had been a college senior going to school just outside the city in a town on the Hudson River when Twin Towers fell, the planes crashed into the Pentagon and the plane crashed in PA.  After that day I was never same and I know as a nation we were never the same.  Since we now live on the west coast, I wasn’t sure when I would get the chance to visit the memorial again.  I’ve been wanting to visit so I jumped at the chance, even though the memorial is not complete.

5 Reasons Why We Love The Drive In

I didn’t grow up going to the drive in.  We didn’t have one near us but I always wanted to go.  I had seen the drive in in movies (Grease anyone?) and it looked like so much fun!  We discovered there was one five minutes from our house not long after we bought it four years ago and we’ve been going ever since.  We usually only make it once or twice a season but we make it a point to get there.  It’s one of our favorite summertime activities.
