Home Sweet Home! Don’t get me wrong there’s nothing like family, but there’s nothing like home either. Last night we went straight from my Mom’s house to a Christmas dinner at Husband’s Brother’s House (my Brother in Law). They have a lovely home and are great people but you know how much I love lots of people gathered in one place. Well, there were 6 adults and 3 kids there – all in one lovely but not overly large open concept house. That coupled with cranky, sleepy Baby and cranky, sleepy Mama equaled a fun but stressful and chaotic time. So I was quite happy when we got home and put Baby to sleep – ’cause then Mama could finally relax.
And this morning (since I had the use of Mom’s car) I went to get a large, and I mean large, purchase of groceries – we were out of everything. So that meant I had to get dressed. And I felt like being a little nerdy/preppy today. I loved wearing vests while pregnant – somehow they worked with the large belly – don’t ask me how. And I have continued to love wearing them now that I’m no longer sporting a basketball in front. This one is a favorite. And I wanted to be fun and playful by mixing patterns with the shirt.
After returning and unloading the vast array of groceries I sat and played with Baby. Husband took some shots and started teasing me through the process; hence, the various assortment of faces I’m making. Another reason I’m so happy? I spent all my Christmas money and my Birthday money (it’s coming up soon and I just know you’re excited!) on one big ticket item that I’m been secretly lusting after for Months. What is it you ask? Why it’s a DSLR camera! Specifically the Nikon D3100. I spent many an hour researching and stressing over which is the right one to choose and finally settled on this one (so if you disagree with my choice, please refrain from commenting about it – it would only make me feel bad). It’s sold out all over the place in store, so I bought it online and it should hopefully (fingers crossed) be here before the weekend. So excited!! Can’t wait to share the wonderful pictures with you!
Another reason I wanted a great camera? Baby’s getting bigger and cuter by the second. And I just have to capture her in all her wonder. I can’t get enough. How did I get the cutest little girl in the world??
What was your favorite gift this Christmas?
