working, sleeping, shopping, working...

I really really love my job, I do. I love the babies, I love the nursing aspect, I love most of the families...I hate going and staying up all night. I think it would be really great to work 1 day a week. That sounds like the perfect schedule. But I have to work to afford all the great things I want to buy!

Since my expanding waistline as made it difficult to wear most of my regular pants, Mr. Football agreed that I needed to go shopping. Which doesn't happen very often...so I jumped at the opportunity. I bought my first pair of maternity pants yesterday. Now I'm a little annoyed that I have to already adjust my wardrobe this early in the game, breathing I've decided is a necessity. I got the basics, a pair of capri's, a pair of white cargo capri's, a few tops. I was a little shocked however at the price of everything. I didn't help the situation that I also needed to purchase an outfit for my SIL's upcoming wedding. So while Mr. Football approved said shopping trip, I don't think he realizes the amount that was spent. So let's just keep it a secret.

With that being said, I wanted to share our book of the week...
This week was my pick, and I decided that I really liked this book when I was little. And it is a cardboard book which I was told is very important in those early reading days when the little one's like to help.

I'll be working the next few days, then it's off to the in-law's for the wedding. Have a great weekend!

Maternity clothing is SO expensive! It's ridiculous!

Your right, maternity can be so expensive. Then? If you are lucky, a "family friend" offers to borrow you the WORST maternity outfits you've ever seen and you don't know what to say. Or maybe that is just my experience.

Try Old Navy for a lot of the basics! You can buy their maternity clothes online!

It is unbeleivable how much can be charged for maternity wear. Look for a second hand maternity shop in your area; that definetely helped me expand my short-term wardrobe!

Cardboard books are definitely a plus. Little hands can handle them good, and cannot tear them! My sister lost a ton of $ in books learning that lesson : )

I hate night shift too...well, that isn't true. Night shift is nice because no one bothers you :) But I hate the way it screws up your internal clock!!

Maternity cloths are a pain in my but. The PX here charges crazy amounts and I have yet to find them for sale in a German store. I buy most of mine online just for anity sake.

Oooh, Noah LOVES that book. Especially when I make the stuffed worm toy "munch munch munch" on the food. He giggles. :)

I think the best thing about that book are all the little holes in the pages.

Ooooh good book choice! That one is one of my favorites, and Baby Girl loves it too. Eric Carle books are great!

Oh, my waist couldn't stand anything touching it, even before I was all that big.

I am so excited for you! Have you seen that widget that people have that shows a little baby floating around and the countdown to the due date?

Just come on my blog on today's meme and click on DarcyLee's name. She has one on there and if you click on it it will take you to the site where you can get it (if you want one, I mean). Clearly you dont' have to do it!

That first trimester is rough and you just get worn out. But the second one is pretty good!
