 One of those days...

The kind where you are on an adrenaline high And you feel kind of giddy... And by the end of it, your face hurts from smiling so much... And you start to think - "Oh my, I don't think I can take any more exciting good things.." THAT kind of day. THAT was my yesterday. See - I have been constantly nagging continually, and sweetly, asking Dave when we could go out and buy paint for our room. I have been SO excited about getting the color in there. But alas, many things needed to be done before the painting - and Dave didn't want to think too far ahead of all the projects which still needed to be done. So I waited, and looked at paint colors every time we were at the store, and planned, and waited.... And then early this week - those magic words "Hey Wendi, I am just about running out of stuff to do in the room before paint can go on the walls. Do you want to go buy paint with me on Thursday? Oh - and I am ready to buy carpet too." So I began to hyperventilate in excitement and did a crazy happy dance while throwing myself at him calmly said that I would look at the calender to see if Thursday was open to go paint and carpet shopping. Ends up it was. So, I knew it would be a fun day. I was also looking forward to it because it was the first Mom2mom meeting of the season (our version of MOPS). We were having brunch, which is always so, delicious!! Imagine my delight when my dear mom2mom friends surprised me with an amazing showering of diapers and sweet things for Malachi! Oh my, what a wonderful and affirming morning. I was just amazed at the generous gifting that was bestowed on us. You mommies will understand - stacks of free diapers excite me like crazy. :) After the boys napped Dave got home and we all headed out to do our shopping. It was every thing I dreamed it would be. :) We now have everything we need for our target date of completion - we hope to be moving back into our room next Friday, the 25th. And - to top the day off - upon our arrival home we found a very highly looked forward to package in our porch which contained this... A good, good day. My cheeks are still grin tired.

Ok, on another note...remember when you sent me the link to that nursing cover. Well. It looks like it sold out a little while back - so is there any way you could browse around and find something else you like and let me know??? :)
