Just Waiting

It was really nice to not have anything I had to do today. I got to sleep in and then I ran a few errands and just hung around the house the afternoon. I got a text this morning from one of the teachers at our school and she said my sub didn't show up. I was freaking out and then she sent me a text a little while later and told me she was just kidding and that she missed me! Really sweet way to start the morning. Thank you Megan!

After I recovered from my heart attack, I decided to attempt to be crafty today. Key word there is attempt. I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a "B" and some leopard print scrap booking paper and made this for a shelf in Brody's nursery. It matches the leopard print fabric on the outside of his crib bumper. Here are some pictures of me working on it and the finished product on the shelf.

There is a little monkey whose legs hang off a shelf that I want to get for the space still left. Jill found it yesterday at a pharmacy in town.

Jill came by today and brought a few little things she had picked up for Brody yesterday.

Corduroy was Jill's favorite book when she was little so she bought a copy for Brody.

Here is the soon-to-be aunt with the little onesie! She is so excited to meet him!
