swap meet treasures

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Y and I went to the Head to Toe Women's Expo in Orange County. They had some interesting booths. We bought tea and Y got a cute t-shirt. After that, there wasn't much else that we were intersted in. However, just outside the Expo, was a huge swap meet. Neither of us knew what to expect but we decided to give it a shot. Well, what an experience. We were there for hours in the scorching sun. We went up and down every single aisle. We had sausages and ice cream to keep up our energy : ) Y bought a cool apron with cherries and skulls on it. In the same booth, I find this darling bib.

Instantly, I knew I was in trouble. After buying the bib, I started seeing cute baby stuff everywhere I looked. I ended up leaving the swap meet with the following goodies:

bib and diaper/wipe holder with scottie dogs

terrycloth and cotton burp cloths

silky blanket with Day of the Dead skull pattern (too cool!)

darling asian style dress with butterflies

I can't wait to go back after my baby girl gets here!!!

baby girl's first piece of furniture

It's official. The first piece of furniture has been purchased! I was looking at cribs online and decided to go to Pottery Barn Kids. One of my friends got her baby furniture there and it's so cute so I thought I'd look at the current styles. Well, I fell in love with this bookcase and when I told my mom about it, she offered to buy it for me. Yipee! It should arrive sometime next week. Then all I have to do is put it togehter. Oy. Wish me luck!

agency update

I decided that it had been a while since I bugged my agency and I was starting to wonder if the 6 month wait for a referral was still reasonable or if I should start preparing myself for a referral next year. Six months would put my referral around Christmas. So, I sent an email to my agency and the response I received started with:

"It is very likely that you will receive a referral soon (before Xmas)"

This has me very excited. It actually made it a little more real for me. To think that I will have a picture of my baby girl before the end of the year is just amazing!
