zulily and a whole lot more on a sunday.

hi guys.  

sorry i've been so incognito.  life has continued to be a bit crazy.  but soon, we will all be forced to slow down, sleep, and keep quiet as a newborn enters this home.  is it wrong to think that'll be a break of sorts?  (you moms-of-newborns are probably shaking your head at me right now thinking, "break!?  you fool.  as if!  get ready for it to get crazier!" and you are probably right.).  but anyway, we're getting lots done.  a trip to ikea (which somehow can always make you feel super productive), cooking, cleaning, and building... things are happening.  but it doesn't stop me from staying awake after one of my middle-of-the-night bathroom breaks to mull over all that's still left.  i hate when i do that.  but alas, it is the curse of being a woman?  or being a pregnant woman in her last trimester?  i'm not sure.  either way, i was up from 4 am on thinking about cleaning mildew off a spot on the bathroom ceiling, reinstalling a toilet paper holder that just won't stay in, and fixing a paint spot in the nursery.  and let me just say, my husband is making room for this crazy (and helping me all the while), which makes me love him even more.  

my mom has been around this week which has been wonderful.  she's been helping lots and of course we can chat and talk about the baby, and watch a movie in between the going-going-going.  she's always a welcome visitor.  she planned on answering your doctor marianne questions when, on a bit of a whim, her and my dad decided to go look at a potential place to move (jersey shore, what what!  and for all you nay-sayers, this is south jersey--not snooki-ville).  they took the jump, put their house on the market, and one week later, it has sold.  so, needless to say, her life is a little crazy too.  but, i promise, they are coming soon.  we've been talking about them lots.  so thank you for asking them and thank you for your patience!

and... as you can see, i missed a 33-week dear baby post.  i'm bummed about that as i hoped to have them all and one day put them in a book (per so many of your suggestions!) and now i'm missing a week!  baby will just have to realize, mama had a crazy week, and i'm sure all will be forgiven.  i will try my very best not to miss another though as i really love doing them.  

and last but not least, this baby needs to get head-down cause i am fairly certain he's laying across my stomach right now.  so, send your head-down, labor-ready thoughts to him, if you don't mind.  i know i've got some time, but i just like to be ready.  have you noticed?

oh, and the picture?  has nothing to do with this post.  it's just some cute zulily clothes that popped into my email this morning and i thought i'd share.  oh, and thank goodness this one's a boy because it's so much easier not to spend oodles on clothes if you're having a boy.  but, you should join.  and not just for the kid's clothes.  i scored a beautiful table cloth on zulily and they've got all sorts of other stuff like women's clothes and bathing suits, and so on and so forth.

now, i am going to most likely be a crazy person somewhere else and scrub something like it's never been scrubbed before.  

have a fabulous sunday.

  3. I'm in my 2nd trimester and I've been staying awake thinking after my bathroom trips too. ; ) We just found out we're having a baby girl so I like to think about names in the middle of the night.

    If you only miss one week out of 40,I'd be pretty proud! What a cool reminder!

  4. @verna, you feel my pain! and it'd be really impressive if it were from 0-40 weeks but i started at 19... so less impressive i'm afraid.

  5. Good for you to even have the nesting nature! My husband keeps waiting and waiting and at 39 1/2 weeks, I'm just going to have to face reality that it's not happening for me. It's far too exhausting to nest. =)

  6. @jessica, you are hilarious. i say kudos to you. nesting is overrated.

  8. don't worry about the babyflip! I did and she waited until the very last minute anyway. I played music between my legs to encourage her (on a iphone, but anything portable would work), which at first was weird and then I loved as a chance to chill out together. Also, downward dogs.

  9. friend. i can say that this nesting thing is soooo legit. I did it EVEN when the baby wasn't in my own WOMB! p.s. I'm still laughing in my head at the plane/hitler scene in Bridesmaids. and the topless driving.

  10. hi, bridget!! i'm michaela over at www.mjanegarrett.blogspot.com. i think i'm a new commenter to your blog. wait, is commenter a word? anyway...just wanted to agree with you that it's good to have boys when you're a zulily member. the girl stuff would be waayyyy too irresistible.

  11. Seriously, when the baby comes don't go out of your way to be quiet. You will be happy if you do. My niece grew up on an airforce base and she heard planes come and go constantly. That kid can sleep thru anything. I know of someone who shut down and no one made a noise when her babies were born. Her kids awake at the smallest of noises. MAKE NOISE, LOTS of it!

  12. I'd say life with a newborn is on a much slower pace but not exactly restful. Does that make any sense?!

    And I used to wake up at 5 am having your exact same thoughts! The nesting instinct is totally for real.

  13. my boyfriend is from south jersey and they all totally resent the snooki-isms. :) as a floridian myself, i was so pleasantly surprised to find that the south jersey shore is absolutely awesome! i almost love going there more than the beaches at home, because since it's not a year-round thing up north everyone just gets so freaking excited about it! in florida everyone's all like, "yeah yeah beach whatever ok cool." laaaaame.

    anyways, enough rambling. good luck with the rest of your pregnancy and hope everything continues to go well!

  14. Yay Jersey shore!! Will you be returning again to Stone Harbor as you did back in the day? You once visited me and some college friends at my house there :) The pictures you took of us are still plastered around my bedroom.
    Lucky you will have a nice place to vacation either way now

  15. Also, just shoot me if another zulily clothing auction for boys is entitled "motorcycles, surfing, and soccor!"

  16. I keep a notepad next to my bed so that I won't forget any thoughts that come to mind in the middle of the night. It helps a lot! Maybe not if all of the tasks are for the hubby though... lol
