Happy St. Paddy's Day!

In our typical fashion, we had to celebrate the Irish holiday with some delish corned beef, cabbage, and veggies, as only my mom can whip up. She is one great cook! While Andrew enjoyed his green beer in typical fashion, I had to abstain from my annual pinot greenio, and settle for green 7Up instead. Hope all you lads & lassies had a great time celebrating!

kudos from my bff.

Good morning bloggers!

I thought I'd start off this week with a little blogging excitement - an award! My first, I might add. toot toot!

How did I get this award, you ask? Well, since it clearly isn't for posting on a regular basis, it can only be because my lovely pal, Mrs. Smith, is just so fabulous. In fact, for more info on how fabulous her life actually is, go on over and check out her blog. You'll love her!

The rules of the award are:

  • Link back to the blogger who gave this to you.

  • Post where you'd like to be in 10 years.

  • Give to five other lovely ladies.

Since its currently a quarter after 7 here in our household, I'd like to think in 10 years, I'll be out doing the school dropoffs for one (or maybe two?) kids. The fabulous-to-be Delaney will most certainly be in tow. After that, let's say I'm out to take a walk, maybe do some shopping, and otherwise enjoy my life of retirement?? Hey, its 10 years, it could happen! Either way, as long as my wonderful husband is along for the ride, I am pretty much game for anything.

Now, to pay some bloggy love forward - here are a few lovely ladies I'd like to pass this award on to:

Emery's Mom

Tracey, my Fellow Mom-to-Be Blogger

My Sis-in-Law

It's a GIRL!!

Well, most of my faithful readers already know this news, but I have been a little behind on the interwebs lately...I blame "restricted activity" {i.e. the horrible phrase which I blame for everything these days}*.
Anywho, to get back to the excitement, let me share again:
This means fabulous things such as a to-die-for nursery {pics and progress coming soon, I promise}, adorable clothes, and someone to play dress up with for the next few years! It has been so great to finally know, so we can settle in to the idea of a little girl. We are both so excited, and can't wait to meet Delaney Kate Klahn!
*Now, for the concerned set, a note on "restricted activity." This is a term apparently used to describe the fact that I am allowed to work & go home - ONLY. This means no chores {not complaining} and also no shopping and various running around after work and on the weekends {cue whining here}. I am blessed to have an amazing husband and similarly fabulous family & friends that help make this challenging time more fun & bearable on everyone involved.
Mommy & Baby are both perfectly healthy, and I couldn't wish for more than that. In the meantime, I am having fun reading baby books, watching Friends reruns {let's be honest, I already spent way too much time doing that}, and delegating nursery tasks.
Before long, Mommy, Daddy & Delaney will be running around everywhere together, and "restricted activity" will be a distant memory of the past!
