I'm Spilling the Beans...

Ok, so here it is.....my big news....I am pregnant and we are absolutely thrilled! The details: I am 9 weeks along and due on September 21, 2007. Thanks to those who have been on the lookout, I have been feeling just a wee bit tired and some nausea too. But all in all, feeling happy and getting excited! Needless to say, I haven't had much energy lately for all my usual duties...and I am already starting to worry about the incidentals such as a more suitable vehicle...my current car will fit two car seats, would be a tight fit I'm sure, but it will not hold for instance a double stroller and add, lets say a second diaper bag to the mix and I am looking at some cramped quarters, eeek....I am panicking too early aren't I? I know that most of you are across the states, at the risk of sounding crazy, you just never know...I am looking to sell my car. I will post more details and some photos if there is interest, so in the meantime let me know...

Don't you just love fun surprise packages and scrappy mail?? Well it has been quite a happy little mail week in the Paddack home. Today I received the most awesome swap package from Jennifer Henson, filled with an array of colorful flowers, ribbons and buttons and these never seen before super cool library style pocket thingy's...and the ribbons were absolutely perfect, none of which I already had in my stash--really love that!

I also received my first issue of Cottage Living Magazine compliments of Kimber-Leigh and a super fun RAK giveaway she was holding back in December... I am hooked and cannot wait for the next issue. Besides all the fabulous home decor ideas; which is just my style by the way, I couldn't help but wow at the most mouthwatering recipe for a Warm Artichoke and Spinach Dip... mmmm! Promise to make and share the results very soon.

Until next time...xo

Congratulations! That is such fun and exciting news! How old will Bella be when the new baby comes? I remember worrying a lot about car seats, and strollers etc! My double stroller was the best investment ever, made life really easy! Take good care of yourself, Anne

Hi Jillian

For my olive trees as gift, I'm going to find a cute pot to put them in, along with a little notecard of instructions for how to care for them. I'm really excited about it, but none have even sprouted yet, it said it could take 1 - 3 mos! I'm very impatient ;) Take care, A.
