Waco finds

Here in Waco today with Meg and Mark when he is on breaks we went to this adorable store. An adorable array of cute things and antiques I was inspired to turn the nursery into a vintage feminine heaven. It was an awesome store. Then we went to the Dr. Pepper museum and to Rudy's!

What I've made

I have been saving this polka dot fabric to make something special for my baby since May, I got it at Mood in NYC, So I whipped up this little dress/tunic for her the other day.
And obviously my baby girl needs a pair of little leopard print pants to hang out in , so I made these today out of left over fabric from a past project. I tend to make things really small, even though I try to cut out everything with plenty of extra room, so I guess I will have to work on that...


all these clothes for the baby girl.

Herman Wouk Books

This book, which I just finished moments ago is excellent. The story of an Author who gains success and lives a fast-paced life, taking place largely in New york City in the 40s and 50s. At about 800 pages it is quite an undertaking. I have been reading little bits at a time for months. It is amazing though and I just wanted to tell you about it.

And now Marjorie, which I read earlier this year, is also a fabulous book. Of the two this one is just slightly my favorite. The story of a young girl and her journey to maturity. As a girl the craziest thing about this book is that a man wrote it, it truly is mind boggling the insight into a young woman's brain he has. A must read!
I have been wanting to just share these books, because they are fabulous, the kind that make you smarter and make you shake your head at the things the author seems to have figured out. At least that's how Meg and I feel, and my folks too...

Amarillo and Lubbock

This past weekend Paul and I went up to Amarillo so that I could attend miss Katie's baby shower. We stayed with our buds Richard and Dana on Friday and had a lovely breakfast with them, and then I went on to the shower and got to be with Katie and take more belly to belly pictures (very important). Then we went on to Lubbock to see Brianna and Spencer where we were treated to a tasty dinner and a nice time just chatting and hanging out in their cute home. And getting to know Scout, their rambunctious adorable dog. So it was a busy one but I'm so glad we went for it!

Boy or Girl?

Went to the Doctor yesterday and we got to watch our baby on the monitor! It was so cool to see him/her in action (baby Y was moving all over the place! the technician was laughing at their evasive maneuvers as she was trying to get a glimpse of their gender). We did not get to find out if it is a boy or girl, we are saving that for the party a week from Friday, my mom gave me these cute litte charms to keep me company until then :)
