Monday Monday

Thanks so much for all of your kind words about our Grace Madeline's name! We L-O-V-E it and can not wait to meet her in 13 weeks (or less!)

Baby plans are in full swing, with the purchase of our crib, changing table, and pack and play last week (33% off everything!) I have some sweet friends here in town who are throwing a baby shower for me in mid February and I am so looking forward to it! I've tried to keep myself from buying all of the little baby things until we know what people are gifting us but I feel like I'm not doing enough to get ready for her arrival!

We have final exams next week and then a two week break between semesters. We were supposed to take a vacation to Jordan to visit some friends, but due to some circumstances we decided to stay in town and use the money for baby gear.

I'm really looking forward to those two weeks! We will still be using our vacation days from work (they expire in March, so we might as well try to use some of our 28 days that we haven't used!) and we plan on hanging out in the house, moving our office furniture into our room, putting together the crib, and having Ian teach me how to drive manual.

I have a feeling January is going to go roaring by and although it won't be the most interesting month, I will end it by looking back on all that we have gotten done!

Also, on a totally random point, what do you guys think of having breakfast for dinner (Brinner.) Yum, and always a favorite OR Save breakfast for Saturday mornings? Ian and I were talking about how we love brinner but feel like we do it more often than most people (once a week or every two weeks!) In our defense, we roll out of bed and have to eat right away so cooking a big breakfast isn't really an option.

working on the nursery is so much fun. I still feel like we have SO FAR to go...

Cooking for breakfast is not an option for us either, and we do brinner quite often! I love pancakes and bacon at 6pm! :)

Wow, only 13 more weeks to go. It seems like it's been a quick pregnancy (not for you I'm sure).

We love breakfast for dinner. We have it one or two times a month probably. In the winter months probably more than that. Something about warm pancakes on a cold night is so comfortign!

We have Brinner ALL the time. So you are not alone. Usually Saturday mornings we are too lazy to make a big breakfast and on Sundays we have to be up and out fo the house early for Church. So it's always breakfast for dinner at our house! When I was a Nanny I would have Breakfast days with the kids and all 3 meals would be breakfast food. They LOVED that. I plan to do it with my kids too.

January will be quick! Just wait; you'll look back and wonder where all the time went! It's crazy! Can't wait to see the nursery all done!

Where did all the Emilys come from?! I'll join in...must be a sign..."Brinner" is something my kids love. Though the original introduction to the idea was rejected by Emma when she was 3 years old! She actually shed tears because in her mind, serving breakfast at dinner time was a mortal sin! She was so goofy about it, I almost got out my Bible to check if she was right! Now all of us enjoy it as a treat!
