Days 25 & 26 - A Photo a Day Challenge

It has been like a month since I posted a photo, but here I am in the final stretch and I guess I cannot give up now.

Photo A Day Challenge - Day 25: Something You Made

I somehow managed to crochet this little ditty, and after I was done I realized that I did not really like it.  The yarn is sort of itchy and because of the length it weighs a ton.  What you gonna do?  I made it and that is all that counts.

Photo A Day Challenge - Day 26: Color

I bought this tiny little suit at Macy's this weekend for little Olivia.  Since she is going to be a summer baby and we are planning on hitting up Palm Springs at some point, I am certain she needs a suit and how can you not love this color.  So lovely!

And We Are Now One Step Closer...

As part of this journey to become parents, we made a list of things that we definitely needed to do to be prepared.  The list had so many things on it like clean out the office that will now be the nursery/office, find a pediatrician, find a daycare/nanny, figure out my maternity leave and finally buy a car that won't trap a child in a serious emergency.  And I don't mean to imply that will be because of the suicide doors but rather the fact that my key would never come out of the lock, so we could literally be trapped in there for days.

Initially I was looking at a Kia Sportage, but was outruled by Paul.  I am rarely outruled by anyone, but since I will be driving around his daughter, I figured he deserved a say in how safe a car we purchase.  So we decided on the new 2012 Honda CR-V.  I hesitated only because both my sister and my mother-in-law have one, and I wanted to have something different and in the end, I am glad that I went with the CR-V. 

I am going to miss the Saturn.  I had some very good memories in that little lady and I know that someone will love her again, as much as I did.  Well maybe not as much, since I had about 6 years without most of the issues that made me hate her in the end... But still.

Here I am with the my little lady... In the rain, might I had.

And then Paul and I with the little woman.

It was a pretty darn easy experience with our guy Andy Mata at Weir-Canyon Honda... I would recommend him to a friend.  Bonus, he smells really good.  We took Friday off and wanted to get the car purchase taken care of before the weekend, so we headed over there early and were out of there within 3 hours.  They gave us what we wanted for the Saturn and met us on our offer for the car.  So once it was all said and done, we got exactly what we wanted and did not feel all grimmy afterwards.  The only down part of the day was having to take our car home in a down pour, where there was threat of hail.  Oh well, not all things can be perfect...

Oh and as a side note, cleaning out your car can be a learning experience.  I found that I keep a lot of trash, mainly from Starbucks in my side doors and more Mapquest directions than I really want to admit.  Either I am just very organized or I have a severe fear of getting lost.  I had the directions to the same places in multiple locations in my car.  Strange and sad.

Train - Feels Good At First

One of the many amazing reasons that I love my husband is that he brought Train into my life.  He loved them so very much, that it was infectious and how could I help but love them as well.  Next week they release a new album titled California 37, and today they emailed a link to listen to the entire album before it is released.  And with only one listen, I already know it is AMAZING!  And to boot one of the best songs I think that they have ever released is on this album, Feels Good At First.

Give it a listen.  Or two or forty like I have over the last few hours.

Day 24: Guilty Pleasure

A Photo A Day Challenge - Day 24: Guilty Pleasure

I have to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Soy Chai Tea Latte at Starbucks.  And yes, I order me a Venti.  I know I should be sans caffiene but this is the exception I make.  It's too yummy to pass up.
