I feel icky. My throat is super sore, I took NyQuil last night and snoozed until 9:30 this morning. Matt's parents were super nice and took care of Ari this morning so I could catch a few more z's. Ari was super nice and slept all night, until 7 this morning. I think he may be feeling a little punk too, he took almost seven hours worth of naps today and was in bed by 7 tonight. Huh, that's a lot of 7's... anyway, Sharon thinks he's teething, Dick thinks he has "baby jet-lag" and I think he's coming down with something. Either way, he's super cranky and sleepy... maybe it's a combination of all three. We go home tomorrow so hopefully we will all be back to normal very soon!
I had tons of great photos to post from Turkey Day but somehow deleted every last one of them (there were 800). I have them on a disk, it's just going to take me FOREVER to get them back on the laptop.
My Label Tulip kit came here yesterday, I asked the lovely ladies there to send it to me here in Louisville so I could make sure it didn't sit on my porch all week. I can't wait to dig it, it's full of goodies!! If you like what you see you should head over there pretty quickly... the kits sell out super fast and they are taking pre-orders for December right now. I've been a member since September and have yet to be disappointed, their stuff is very eclectic and fun!
Sharon and I went to The Summit today, it's a shopping area very close to their house. I needed a few things from J.Crew and Sharon needed some candles for her holiday mantle display. We were in Pier 1 and I found the perfect ornament for Ari for Christmas this year. We plan on getting him an ornament every year then giving him the entire collection when he gets married (in 30 years...). I'm even going to take it a step further and make an album of all of them explaining why I picked that particular ornament. The story behind this years ornament is 1. That it's super cute 2. It has a cute silk keepsake box and 3. It's called "Li Bien" which in Chinese means "inside". The Li Bien ornament showcases the age old skill of inside painting. Each ornament is hand painted through a tiny opening in the mouth blown glass making them unique. I tried to take a picture, my camera wasn't doing a very good job so Dick took some pics and will send them to me via email first thing tomorrow. The ornament is dated with the year so we will always know which Christmas it was for!
I would have loved to have shopped more today, I found so many neat things but my suitcase is overflowing as it is! That, and it started raining while we were out and the shopping center is open-air. Brian and I are hitting the mall hard when he gets to my house next week, I will do some serious damage to the checking account then!
Last but not least, my RAK drawing!!! I pulled a name from Dick's hat earlier today and the lucky winner was Michelle Lloyd (aka. Michelle & Ella)!! Luckily she lives in my town so I don't have to mail anything, you can pick it up at my house this week!! I have lots of goodies, I will post a picture of the super fun prize pack when we get home.
I think I'm gonna go to bed, my throat is still pretty sore. The NyQuil is calling my name, tomorrow is going to be another long day, our flight leaves at 3:30 arriving in Charlotte at 5 and we have to wait for Matt to help us with all the baby travel gear. Then it's straight home for eternity... hehe ;) Well, home for two weeks until we go to Florida to visit my dad!
