yesterday i made a "quick" trip to waterloo (the big city) with my folks. i was on the hunt for shoes for katie's wedding. target did have the shoes but not in my size - what a bummer to drive 90 miles to figure that out. so, of course i had to make a little purchase while i was there. target for me always means buttered popcorn jelly bellies. got those! i also purchased diary of a mad black woman. i'd wanted to see it but it came out in theatre after i was no longer able to sit through an entire movie comfortably. wednesday i got to watch Oprah and she was talking to the cast about the movie. it was fun to hear the inside scoop and made me want to see the movie even more. so, i splurged yesterday and bought it. what a cute movie with plenty of humor for those boys who get suckered into seeing it. i thought it was kinda like the black version of Hope Floats. what fun to watch, i might even watch it again tonight with some friends and i don't usually like to watch movies more than once.
still no baby. i guess he really isn't in a hurry. still hoping for 4th of july which is quickly approaching. we do have the carseat in the car for the day we need it. but of course, for those of you who know me well, i don't like packing in advance. so, we're still not packed for the hospital. i did plug in the video camera though to make sure its charged. and we do know what will go in the bag, its just not done yet :) still a little fearful of the process but the light at the end of the tunnel, the thing i'll focus on for an end result, will be seeing ryan hold that baby all snuggled up. i can't wait!!! last night ryan was sitting in the chair and he held the puppy like a little baby which just made me that much more eager to see him with a baby. I love my husband, he's so wonderful.
the nursery is done and now ryan is making a shelf to go in there. he's also been spending plenty of time out in the blazing sun working on the north porch. i have such a studly husband! last night he was all upset that "it looks like crap". it doesn't and i tried to assure him of that. i think it looks fine. he's a veterinarian, not a carpenter. i just think its awesome that he's willing and able to do that kind of work. so, the porch is slowly making progress again. there's so much on his honey-do list and i appreciate him working on it.
TGIF, enjoy this Independence Day!
