Baby on the brain

What is the best way to clear your mind when you are trying to relax and not freak out that you are getting induced in a few hours...blogging.  Well, I thought it would help but it hasn't.  I put together a list of top registry items.  Now I must clarify that I do not have the baby yet so I have no idea if the little man is going to like this stuff but I do.  I will do a follow up post to let you know how they work out.

My next post when ever I get around to it will be on the cute baby stuff I have found on instagram through other moms and bloggers.  My bank account is getting a work out to say the least.  Hopefully it wont take me 3 months to blog again.  Sorry, I have been crazy busy at work and home trying to get ready for this baby.

What I want Wednesday

It's that time again...what I want Wednesday.  It is maternity/baby theme...weird I know.

I also wanted to say thank you to all my readers. I have gotten some great comments and emails on things to add to my registry and helpful advice.  I am a newbie and love all your advice :)  Keep it coming!

If it's meant to be

Yesterday instead of hitting up Target to snag a few pieces from Prabal Gurung I was condo hunting.  Talk about stressful.  Not as stressful as London but very close.  We were out all day and have 3 choices but the way the market is going they could all be gone by time we get to making an offer.  I found out late last night, while watching the Grammys, we missed out on our top choice by a few hours.  So, we quickly moved onto to our 2nd and we are waiting to hear back.  The agent did let us know we are not the only ones interested but we were the first to contact and apply.  However, I have been waiting for an invoice for a few hours to pay so they can start to process our application and I am yet to hear from them. I am getting beyond impatient.  If they come back and tell me we missed out there will be words as they told me we were first to apply.  Wish us luck - I really hope we get this one.  My husband said I am not cut out for this and I think he is right.

Today this is what I need to keep reminding myself

Friday Favorites - baby edition

So, I am about to enter my 6 month of pregnancy.  Crazy, right?!  I can hardly believe it either.  My husband and I just moved back to Chicago from London and we are currently condo searching.  I like to have a chaotic life.  I like to think I work better under pressure.

Anyways, we have been doing some shopping and I have bought some of things below and others I am saving for my registry but these are my baby favorites right now.  The big ticket item we are actually going to buy this weekend is the stroller.  Living in the city I wanted to invest in a nice stroller.

BTW the snoogle is amazing.  I was having issues sleeping and this has been a life saver.

Next week I will share my nursery inspiration board.  We've finally agreed on bedding last night and made the purchase.  I was not prepared for how picky Matt was going to be with this little guy.

Happy Friday
