Daydreaming

about a pretty new dress like this. If it didn't cost what it does I might look into it as a motivation dress. When given a choice of what to eat for the next few weeks, I'll consider the impact that what I eat will have on Joy. Trying to be careful, I avoid salad, anything spicy, caffeine--I still have a little but nowhere near what I had while pregnant--and stick to a bland, comfort food diet. Nursing burns calories so don't worry that I'm not eating enough. I can out-eat most teenage boys. And I plan on it. But see, there's a wedding coming up (love you Bonnie!) and it would be fun to find a new pretty dress to wear to it to celebrate the wedding and having a baby...without looking like I'm still pregnant. A dress like this would do the trick even if I don't succeed. Isn't it cute?

Love the dress and make it your I just had a baby dress. And, yes, I've had 3, so new shoes would be nice too.

Tell Carley we want pictures!! Was she able to go naturally- tiny thing that she is I imagine an epidural started sounding pretty good.

I love that dress! I agree that you definitely deserve it!!

Hope your first week at home "home" is going good! I saw your message about us Aggies! We are '99 and '00, so we were all there at the same time...crazy world! LOL!

Ps..I do my own blog...not that great, but I don't want to fork over the money to have someone else make it over...such a cheapy!

Crazy that you had a similar situation. I wonder if we had carried Benadryl with us if we could have prevented the blue lips. We will be carrying that and the Epipen at all times now! so crazy!

Yes, schedules are definitely what make things happy in our house... I'm usually the "schedule nazi" and really don't know what I was thinking yesterday. I can't even blame prego brain anymore!

On the blog, the design on it right now, I did the background and everything myself. It was a first try. If you are at all familiar with photo-shop, it really isn't too hard. Also, on thecutestblogontheblock... they have little tutorials that explain how to do it. I think it's under "blog secrets."

ps. Get the dress! I walked by anthropologie yesterday and thought of you!
