Our Day

It has been an absolutely gorgeous day out today. It is 71 degrees outside and I was able to go out without a jacket and in short sleeves. My windows are open and there is a wonderful breeze coming through the living room. If only it would stay this way, but alas, I do believe it will be getting cold again shortly.
Russ and I started off the day by going to a furniture store. We recieved some money from my Granny Tiger and Pappy and decided to buy a glider with it. We only have a sectional and I wanted something that rocked for Chloe. I looked online at a few stores around here and decided on one that I liked. When we got there, I didn't like the feel of it as much as a different one so we ended up getting the one I liked the best. It was a little more than I was planning on spending, but we both loved it much more than the others they had. So, within 20 minutes, we made our first big purchase for the baby! Here is a picture of the glider we picked out.
We bought it in a dark green color that will go with our neutral sectional very well. We didn't buy the ottoman with it. I don't think we would have room for that, too. I'm so excited to get the glider! They will call us in 2 to 3 weeks to come pick it up.
Then we headed over to a department store to get Russ some much needed new jeans. He has lost 40 pounds (GO RUSS!) and is still wearing the same jeans he had. He went down 3 whole sizes! What is really funny about this is that between the weight I lost before getting pregnant and the weight he lost, we have lost 110 pounds. That's a whole person! I'm so glad we have changed our lifestyle the way we have. I want Chloe to grow up with parents who are healthy and active.
I decided to look at baby stuff while we were there (the actual reason I wanted to go) and ended up buying a few things for the little girl. I also bought a maternity shirt that was on sale for me. I'm going to have to stop buying maternity things, though because I only have 3 1/2 months of this left. It is so weird to be able to say that! Here are the things I picked up for Chloe.
I love baby headbands. I know they are annoying and never stay on, but they are sooo cute!
All of these outfits are 3 month size so she will be able to wear them all summer hopefully.
That's it for now. We are expecting a couple over who are going to bring us a crib mattress. Yay! Another thing to check off the list! I hope you all are having great weekends!

Nice glider! I'm so glad we went with a good quality glider with my daughter as it turned out to be something that we spent so much time in between feedings, bonding and reading over the past four years. I never missed the ottoman either.

The outfits are darling!

And yay on lifestyle changes...that is something to celebrate!

Your glider sounds like it's going to be perfect for your space. Congratulations! I am glad that you thought our the ottoman- they do take up a lot of room (usually 60" with the chair), and they tend to overpower.
Chloe is going to be such a girly girl with her cute little headbands!!

I just stumbled upon your blog - Congrats on the little one. Please relax about your weight, you and hubby chose to get healthier before you got preggo and that's great. Now realize that you're gaining for that sweet little girl, it's what nature intended and what's needed for a healthy pregnancy. And if your body never measures up to the picture you have in your head, it won't ever matter to Chole she'll just love her Mommy. I was a cute tiny thing before my first was born and it's taken me too long to realize that it doesn't matter as long as I'm healthy and so are my children. Best wishes to you, your DH and your little one :)

I went back through your journal and saw your weight loss pictures!! Way to go!! I too have lost alot of weight, 75 pounds. When I get my computer back from the shop I will send you an old picture of what I used to look like. I wasn't always heavy but getting my thyroid out and then taking injections in the stomach, being depressed because I couldn't get pregnant, my family I am estranged from....well it took it's toll and I turned to food. Now I am alot healthier for my children and I have only 20 pounds left to loose!!! Anyway, I thought you would want to know some more back ground on me. :)

Aug 30th is my mom's birthday too! She thinks it'd be funny if the babe was born then too. I'm hoping I'm not late - you know the whole uncomfortable thing - but that seems to be a trend in my family (I was 3 weeks late) and so we'll see. I'll keep that in mind!! :o)
