Things that make me smile

Keurig- We got this as a gift for Christmas and Lou and I use it probably 5-6 times a day between us. I love the Cafe Mocha and Buttered Toffee flavored coffees. Lou got me a milk frother for Christmas as well so I can make my very own lattes. This has made my break up from Starbucks a little less painful. Lou makes Hot Apple Ciders every night (I still think it would be better with a little rum in it! haha) and is looking forward to some caffeine assistance this year for tax season. We didn't forget Dominic! He gets his share of hot chocolates as well. Just this week we came across the website which has a HUGE variety of K-cups cheaper than you find in stores, larger quantities with free shipping!!

Maybelline Baby Lips- I saw an advertisement for these lip glosses in a magazine about a month ago and have since searched stores for them. Every time I looked, they were completely sold out except for the bright red color. Last Friday, I stumbled upon a single peppermint/clear color at Target and snatched it up! I am in love!!! I have been a LipSmackers gal for over 20 years (wow I sound old!) now and these lip glosses are smooth and actually work! I don't have time to reapply lip balm over and over throughout the day so this is right up my alley! (No, sadly I am not paid for endorse Maybelline cosmetics--but if someone out there wants to pay me to play with makeup....)
My boys- Of course these little guys are the number one reason I smile each day! I feel so blessed that I could fill this blog up with reasons that I'm smiling, I just wanted to share a couple while I had a few minutes to blog! :)

Bennett Robert

Bennett was born on Monday January 9th at 9:33 am. He was 8 lbs 5 ounces and 20 inches long! We are adjusting to life as a family of four here at home and just in awe of how blessed we are! :)

Here we go!

We're on our way to the hospital! My surgery is scheduled for 9 am (but I'm sure will be later, as that goes) and soon we will meet Mister Bennett!!! :) I'm a mix of emotions right now. Of course my knee and hip have flared up and it was so painful that I could only sleep an hour. I'm actually looking forward to the spinal block and pain meds for some relief! :) I'm super excited and anxious to meet this little guy who has been so busy the last few months karate kicking my ribs. And I'm also very hungry and thirsty. <--if you're wondering how I'm feeling entirely. Lol

T minus 4 days

For some reason I just seem oblivious to the fact that our world is going to flip upside down in less than 4 days. I'm busier than ever and on my feet all day instead of resting. This is due mostly to the fact that I have dedicated this week to making sure Dominic gets out and about. We went to a movie and open gymnastics yesterday, playground world today, inside playgrounds, played every game under the sun and made special big brother cookies. I know we are going to be stuck inside due to a newborn being here and the cold Ohio temperatures so we are soaking up the outside world while we can!!

I wonder when it's really going to hit me that there is going to be a baby here in f-o-u-r days or less!!!??

One week!

We are officially at T minus one week until Bennett's scheduled eviction. We figured that today was a good day to finally get everything out and set up. I packed (and will repack I'm sure) my bag for the hospital and Dominic's overnight bag for his stay at Nana's house. Lou is a quick packer so if anything should happen before Monday, he'll be ready. It is super strange to have the pack and play and bouncer downstairs and to see teeny tiny diapers!! I guess it's getting a bit more real huh? Next week at this time I'll be watching the "Bachelor" in my hospital room with our new baby boy!! :) eek!!!
