“At first an ordeal and then an accomplishment, the daily run becomes a staple, like bread, or wine, a fine marriage, or air. It is also a free pass to friendship.”

May Have Gone a Bit Overboard

So, I went shopping for the baby today, the 2nd shopping trip.

First of all - we've learned that the baby can now hear us outside the womb.  So, my husband - knowing I was going shopping today, told me to "get some books so that I can read to the baby."  First off - how cute is that?  (don't tell him I said that, of course).   Second - WHAT WAS HE THINKING???  To tell me - the book addict - to go to the bookstore and get some books for the baby without placing any kind of limit whatsoever.  HELLO????  Have we not been married 10 years?  Should he not KNOW better by now?  I mean, seriously.

So.  Um.  I may or may not have spent $80 on baby books.  Which is about the same amount I spent on cute little girl outfits.

After the shopping trip - my shopping buddy Lindsey - who knows I'm a runner, and knew from my comments that I wanted little running shoes for the baby....pulls out of her closet a teeny, tiny box of Nikes.

OMG.  How freakin' cute?   Anyone that doesn't think itty bitty sneakers are cute just needs to stop and re-think life.  I'm just saying.

And now, I'm off to try to fit my run into my day.  


  1. I hope you got baby a copy of Everyone Poops. That is (obviously) one of my favorite children's books. I'm so excited for you, Mandy! You seem so happy. Hope your run went well!

  2. My absolute favorite board book is Time For Bed by Mem Fox. You may have to go back out and spend a few more $$ for it! ♥ it!

  3. I absolutely LOVE the book recommendations! I'll have to look for each of these!


Comments pretty much make my day - so thank you for yours!
