and Registering Galore......
My first exciting news is that I passed the glucose test. If you read my previous post (see below) you know I've been a basket case worried about that thing. They let me know today I passed and not just passed, but it wasn't even close. It may look like a tiny miracle to some, but to me it was HUGE. Just a reminder God cares about it all and he's got me in the palm of his hand. Insert *sigh of relief* here!!
This weekend was Valentine's Day. I have chuckled with friends over the last week when we say "are you doing something romantic" and we all laugh, yeah right. Those days were gone with saying "I do". Seriously though I don't need roses that will die, chocolate that will break my face out or expensive gifts to remind me that Andy loves me. Thankfully he's a man who isn't afraid to remind me 100Xs a day if I need it and I'm so blessed. (I did get a box of chocolate and sweet card) Our Valentine to each other was our $200 deposit for our Fall Disney Trip, Cole's first official trip (outside the womb - he he he)!!
We decided to make the most of our icky weather Saturday since we were stuck inside anyway. We went to Babies R Us to register!! It was so much fun! Thanks for your advice a few posts back, it helped. I will confess to you here, because you're going to find out eventually right, that we have 15 pages worth of stuff!! Yep, 15 is what I said! We decided it was better to go ahead and put it all on there, you never know. Plus, we get to buy whatever isn't purchased at 10% off if we've registered for it. The place was crazy insane crowded, we spent almost 2 hours in there. Andy was a trooper and truth be told, had as much fun as me I think. I'm pretty sure there are some things on there that I don't know about, maybe I should go look at it more closely.
We got a $10 gift card for registering and I bought two sets of onesie shirts. One set is cowboy print that I absolutely adore and it will match my cowboy blankie I'm making. The other set are little cars & things that match a blankie I bought there a few months back!! I spent under $1 ~
We had our Valentine Supper at Ippolitos, good stuff. It wasn't our original plan, but we'll get to that. It was close to Babies R us and it was fantastic. We'd eaten there a few weeks back after a doctor visit. Great Italian place if you've never been, over across from Town Center, check it out.
I had a coupon (thank you Misty) for Gymboree, so I "had" to stop on the way home! The clearance stuff was 20% off the clearance price and then my coupon was an additional 20% off the total of that. Wowie Zowie, good deals. I got some super cute stuff, pictured below. The monkey blanket I had way before Cole was a possiblilty which is so fun and the little monkey hat our niece Ruthie bought for Cole. So it was fun to find monkey things to go with it.
Sunday was filled with church, lunch (where I was about to beat the door down because we were there early and they hadn't open the door yet, can't keep a preggo hungry woman out I tell ya) and then a quick nap. Followed by "Shopoholic" movie with my awesome friend Misty!!
Monday was a school holiday & Andy was off too, yipee~ We went to I-HOP for breakfast and decided to register at Target. It was empty in there on a Monday morning, so it was fun!! We came up with 6 pages worth in there, even though Target's baby section isn't that huge. What can I say? Target is my favorite place and we registered for some things at both stores. (That was the right thing to do, correct? I figured most people wouldn't make it to Babies R Us)
Monday night we went back to our original plan for Valentine's which was Sapparo for Japanese, yummmmmmm...... Funny because everyone else ate out over the weekend. We were the ONLY people in the entire restaurant last night! We had the place and our chef to ourselves. It was fantastic though, good times!! We now have one on our side of town, if you're near Hiram/Dallas there is now one on 278!!
