I had a very rare day for any mother. It's the kind of day you take for granted before there are children running around, but covet once they are here.
This morning I found out I won some earrings on April's blog dot...dot...dot.... Waaaa hoo! I got to pick any pair of earrings I wanted from Wire Wrapped Designs so I picked the green disc wire wrapped earrings. This is the first time I've ever won anything! I can't wait to get them and try them on.
Not to long after that dear Niki, who hasn't popped yet and was due today, asked me to go to a movie and then get a pedicure with her. Since Mom is off of school for the week and could babysit, I was allllll over it! She wanted to see New Moon, and who am I to deny a woman that should be giving birth, so I sacrificed personal pride and went with her. And you know what? It wasn't that bad. I have never read the books and I didn't see the first one, but I still enjoyed myself. Plus it helped that there were only three other people in the theater so we could visit all we wanted without getting shooshed. She filled me in as the movie went on. Then we went to get a pedicure and it was oooooo-la-la. We both got a lavender mint pedicure, and boy was I ready for a nap afterwards. She is getting induced in the morning, so soon the world will get to meet Miss Riley Nikole! While we couldn't coax her to come on her own, we sure did have fun trying.
Then since Mom and Dad had Luke anyway, I just went over and had dinner with them. They made this stuffed chicken breast dish that was wrapped with bacon, and then we had baked apples for dessert. Mmmm-mmmmm. I've actually never had a baked apple, but I can guarentee that it won't be the last time.
So are you jealous of my day yet? :) Tomorrow it will be back to the grind of laundry, play date, cooking, and more laundry. It's been awhile since I've forced myself to do it.
