so what is it about impending motherhood that suddenly makes you stop sleeping? i have memories of my mom whistling around the house at 6 in the morning, makeup on, breakfast cooking, and coming to wake me up saying, "up and at 'em" in the most cheerful voice. i have many times thought i could never be like her, so happy and alert in the morning. these thoughts passed through my mind at 6:20 this morning as i was making the bed, opening all our shutters, and filing my nails (why i need to file my nails at daybreak is beyond me).
and it's not because i was well rested. our neighbor's dog-for the 6th time in 3 weeks-kept us up until 1:45 am with his incessant barking, so i definitely did not get enough sleep, but maybe my body is getting ready to exist on very little rest. i know i probably won't see 8 hours of sleep again until about 2015! so all of you out there who slept well last night...good for you (yawn ;)
changing the subject now...yesterday mike and i went to the olive branch for lunch. it's a yummy little cafe with the best cream of potato soup. and since my 30 week picture was so yucky (see previous post), we took another one.
after lunch, we went to spice to get some gifts. i'm always talking about spice on this blog, so i thought i would take a pic of it, so those of you who haven't been there can visualize it. it's a group of old warehouses that have been redone and filled with wonderful things like furniture, gifts, and clothes.
and i just love their gift wrapping. they can do whatever colors you want for like $2 or $3...the little gift was for a friend who's having her baby boy in 2 weeks and the bigger gift is for my cousin's anniversary.
and here is the most wonderful little shop of vintage goodies...it's called bloom and bee swanky. isn't that a cute name? i love that our little town is getting such cute places to shop!
