Weekend Update

This past weekend was SO busy. DH and I went Saturday night to a poker party that all his soccer friends were having. We got to the bar at 7:30 and didn't leave until 2am! We got home around 3! It's been SOOOOOO long since I've been out that late. I'm surprised I was able to stay on my feet and be coherent. Needless to say, as soon as I got home, and my head hit the pillow, I was OUT. We had a good time though. I've never actually played Texas H0ld'em before, but I've always watched when we've gone...I'm pleased to say that out of the 3 games I played in, I was only the first one out in the last one (I attrribute that to the fact that it was midnight when the game started!). I didn't win any of the games, but I was pleased with my performance. Most of the guys there couldn't tell it was "my first time"!

On Sunday, DH and I went to buy the paint for the nursery. We're painting it a beige color so that any color accents will go and can easily be changed without having to repaint. So now the paint sits in the nursery...just waiting to be put on the walls. We also looked for new hardware for the dressers and armoire we took from my parents. We wanted to liven it up a bit with new handles and pulls...but standard now is 3 inches...out handles need 2.5 inches. So we'll need to see if we can special order anything.

I'm still hesitant to buy anything "baby" though. Paint and new hardware hardly seems like getting ready for a baby...but I did give in and buy a receiving blanket to match the bedding we are hoping to register for. And I only did that so that we could color match the paint to the bedding. Oh yea...and I bought a package of baby hangars to meet the $25 minimum required to use the coupon I had.

16 week checkup in 2 days!

I didn't buy anything for the baby for ages and ages. I think I was 32 weeks or something ridiculous like that.
