My Latest Obsessions
Happy Friday! It is Fun Friday as the little gals said this morning.
So, today I'm starting my 13th week. Our little "shrimp" is now almost 3 inches long and weighs nearly an ounce. So exciting! My Dad's friend Bonnie gave me this great pregnancy journal that I know I'll definitely appreciate later. I'm also really enjoying reading the book, A Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy. While there are so many books out there that discuss the wonderful things that go along with being pregnant and so forth, I love the total honesty of this author (who at times is pretty darn funny). She gives you the "real" scoop - the good, the bad and the ugly and talks about those embarrassing moments along the way!
I have a total girl crush on Meryl Streep. She is such a great actress and she has certainly run the gamut - from her role in "The Devil Wears Prada" to classics such as "Out of Africa." I recently saw "It's Complicated" with the lovely Streep and Alec Baldwin. I thought the movie was HILARIOUS! I have to say that there is something about Mr. Baldwin that always strikes me - maybe it is his adorable boyish charm. But he had me cracking up in "It's Complicated"(for sure!). I couldn't help but find him endearing in the movie. And OMG - I LOVE Streep's amazing home and kitchen in the movie (and her chic bakery).
I'm a 30-something gal who went from Sassy and Single in the city (Chicago) to an instant mom living in the burbs w/my husband's 2 adorable little girls (ages 9 and 11). My husband's late wife's sister's husband (who I used to work w/) introduced us and the rest is history. I've never been happier. And summer 2010 we added a little boy to the mix. We love our little Prince Georgie!
