Exciting Times

I've had quite a bit going on lately. This past weekend, we picked up Graham's crib and put it together. Exciting (pictures below)!

I also finished reading Confessions of a Shopaholic. Then, I took a couple of books back to the library and got a new one: The Girl Who Played With Fire. I liked The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, so I think I'll like this book too. Looking forward to getting into it!

I was pretty worn out from cleaning, ...but not too worn out to shop for baby stuff! So, I went with my (about to have a baby any day now) friend, Mindi, to Rhea Lana's, a consignment sale, in Rogers. I didn't find too much I had to have, especially since I haven't had any showers yet. I probably will go back on Thursday, because everything that has a red dot on it will be 1/2 price that day. Maybe I'll find more stuff I need then! I did happen to pick up some cute Razorback baby bibs (that say "Lil Razorback Fan") and newborn Razorback hats. I figure it'll be cold when Graham comes, so he might as well be representin'!

When I got back, Dustin and I worked on cleaning the upstairs (we'll be having a special guest stay with us this weekend!).

My new Kaplan LSAT class started Sunday, so I'm excited about that. I ran a little long in our second class on Monday night. Overall though, so far, so good! I'm also looking forward to this next weekend for many reasons. I get to see my good friend, Jessica, on Friday night. I'm also having Dannelle, another friend I haven't seen in a long time, stay at my house and I have a law school baby shower on Saturday! It'll be a mini-reunion and I'm excited to see everyone who can make it and catch up with them!

And today, I picked up Graham's carseat! There's not too much to see in Graham's room yet, but here's what we've got so far:

Left to right: Dustin's childhood rocking chair, activity playmat my sis, Lori, gave me, Graham's awesome carseat, jungle swing Lori gave me, and crib!

Left to right: Vibrating chair Lori gave me (with carseat head rest on it), bedding/decorations (we don't have a mattress yet, so we can't put the bedding on), and adorable storage boxes my friend, Sisi, gave me (better pictures of those below)!

I came home today and had two packages waiting for me. My good friend, Sisi, sent me baby presents. I must say, they are AWESOME! This is a green (yellow on the inside) sling... it seems sturdy and like it'll last a long time. Plus it is gorgeous! [Oh, and Sam's foot on the left side of the picture]

These are storage boxes she sent to use in the nursery. They are so cute!!! They look like they are hand painted too (very intricate)! Here's another pic of them:

Aren't they beautiful?! I am so thankful to have such thoughtful, loving people in my life... Graham will be too!

There are some other miscellaneous items/clothing I didn't take pictures of, but you get the idea. It's becoming more real! I'm very much looking forward to meeting my lil' man.

  1. Oooh! Oooh! So exciting to see my car seat surrounded by baby stuff again! I hope you like it.

    Oh, also, fyi, the half price sale at Rhea Lana's is for anything withOUT a red dot. They use a little moniker "red dot equals NOT" to help you remember. Silly, I know, but didn't want you to get all excited and then bummed when they tell you it's not half price.
