I Swallowed the Basketball

Boston Celtics vs. Utah Jazz game last night!  
We figured we'd try to fit in one last date (boo hoo hoo) in what will surely be a very long time.
I figured I couldn't go to a basketball game looking THIS pregnant, and not have a little fun with it!  I got SO many comments from fans, as if this was some crazy thing never been done before!

 Thank you Emily & Emily for a fabulous baby shower!  I was blown away by the craftiness of these sisters in putting everything together.  Beginning with this announcement:

 The little baby owl hat?  Oh my word!  I felt so loved today, by so many friends.  The cherry on top was coming home to Jason scrubbing the high chair clean.  Just a wonderful day!  Thanks everyone!

A Little Purple

 My darling friends Emily W and Emily M are throwing me and friend Rebeckah a joint baby shower tomorrow!  Those little dears.
And here's the little baby skirt and matching headband (which I may or may not have tried on Lincoln) that I made for Rebeckah's baby!  (Rebeckah, if you follow this blog, stop reading now.)  I used some scraps from the Prom dress you'll see in a few weeks.  I ran the skirt downstairs to show Jason and squeal about it a little, and realized: I know exactly why God doesn't give me any girls.  I would spend WAY too much money on fabric and WAY too much time making frilly things.  Good thing I have friends who keep having girls!

Happy Patty

Happy green day!  Everything we did that was St. Patty's-related was centered around food, though I did go down to Haymarket yesterday morning (which I guess is also food-related), and even at 10:30am, the city was preeeetty crazy with drinkers.  We thought we'd stay indoors.
A. Green waffles & banana coins
B. Shamrock Shakes
C. Normal deviled eggs (I got a little too excited about using my new shamrock plate, that I totally forgot to dye the filling green)
D. Jason brought me home a gorgeous St. Patrick's green bouquet of flowers on Monday to enjoy all week!  How perfectly seasonally thoughtful to a girl who loves the holidays so much!
E. Zucchini muffins (which look green when you bite into them)
F. Key lime yogurt pie

Can You Find the Baby?

I found a place even more trashy and more fun than a thrift store!  The Garment District in Cambridge opens a bale of clothes every day, dumps it in a big room, and you get to climb and swim in the mounds of junk and pay only $1-a-pound for what you find.  Seriously.
Lincoln seems to think its the greatest place in the world!  I usually leave with a big bag of things I rip apart for the fabric, trim, and buttons for under $2.  And for the entertainment of watching a rolling, tumbling toddler playing in a room of laundry?  Priceless.

Hockey Mom

This commercial came up during one of our latest guilty pleasure Castle episodes.  I kept thinking "That's going to be me!  Oh my gosh, that's going to be me!"
