This past weekend was a pretty busy weekend. Both J & I had yesterday off for Columbus day. We decided to take full advantage of it and use it to get ready for baby.
On Saturday I went to the gym and lasted through the kickboxing class. I couldn't finish the class 2 weeks ago so I was glad I made it this week. After the class, I went home and decided to sort through the items we got from our baby shower. We got a lot of clothes ranging from Newborn to 15-months. I wanted to sort through it so we could see what else we need.
After sorting through the clothes, I sorted through the coupons we've received in the mail so far and then went through the other non-clothing items.
I then went to Michaels to get a few more thank you cards to send out to those who got us gifts and then it was off to get a much needed manicure/pedicure (thanks to my sweet hubby J).
Excuse the fat fingers. Everything appears to be swollen these days :-). I know its a winter color but I fell in love with this color. Can't remember the name now but its OPI.
When J got home, we headed to Babies R Us to get the items from our registry that we didn't receive during our baby shower. Almost 2-hours later, we had a VERY full cart of baby items. We felt like we had accomplished quite a bit that night.
On Sunday, we went to Church and then stopped by Target to get a few things from there since we also got some gift cards there. That turned out to be a wasted trip. For the record, I HATE poor customer service! I'd rather pay a higher price for better customer service. Anyways, we decided instead to order the items from their online site. Since I LOVE a good bargain, I spent the rest of the evening comparing prices online and trying to make sure the items I was getting from the online site was comparable or less than other sites.
On Monday, I had my 36-week OB appointment. So far, no dilation and not effaced so baby is hanging in there for a bit. When I got home, J and I went for a long walk and then we decided to get to work on the crib. Here's J looking so happy building our daughter's crib.
About 2.5-hours later, we were done with the crib. Here's the finished product of our baby's first bed. We decided not to convert the other room into a nursery because my mom will be coming to spend some time with us and also because we will be moving early next year.
After building the crib, I was tired but wanted to get more done. We went through the items we purchased the night before and then I took a MUCH NEEDED nap. Later on in the evening, we went to the outlet mall by us to walk around and pick up some household items.
Overall, a busy weekend and I feel like we need a few more days off to really relax.
I finally feel like we are making strides in getting ready for baby.
How was your weekend? Did you get Monday off? If so, how'd you spend it?
