It’s Friday! That’s good news in my book. Now that Paul has normal weekends off from work, Fridays are even more special. Of course, he’s probably going to have to work late tonight, sad. :-( (Big news events, like earthquakes in Japan, always make things a little crazy in the newsroom.)
I decided to go to another consignment sale today. I didn’t like it as much as the one I went to on Wednesday – it was more expensive and was most likely picked over by the time I got there. But, I did get something I’m really excited about – a PeaPod! I looked into these last October when I was traveling, as a smaller/lighter alternative to a pack & play, but I couldn’t find any used and they are so expensive new. But I picked one up today and set it up when we got home, and I’m really excited. We do a lot of traveling, and I’m hoping this will fit into our small car better than a huge pack & play. It will also be good for camping!
KidCo’s PeaPod™ the travel bed that does it all for the on-the-go parent! The inflatable air mattress helps protect baby from cold, damp floors while providing a comforting place to sleep. Great for outdoors because of its UV protection and wind screens. Zippered panels allow parents quick and easy access to baby from virtually any angle. The slick, easy to fold design makes it ideal for storage and use anytime. Weighs 4.75 lbs.
I’m excited to try it out! I will let you know how I like it. :-)
In other news (microblogging now… argh I miss posting things to Facebook!!!):
* I put Savannah’s hair in pigtails today. I’ve been waiting for it to get long enough that I could put *all* her hair up without it falling out. It looked sooo cute!! I didn’t get a picture, but maybe I’ll get one when she gets up from her nap.
* It’s gorgeous outside. We had a brief cold snap, but it’s supposed to be highs in the 70s this weekend! And high 60s all week next week.
* Looks like Atlanta is going to get some streetcars!! I’m a fan of public transportation, so I’m excited about this.
* I’m starting a reading plan for Lent. I’m a few days late starting, but I’m excited about this since it’s also the first time I’ve ever given up something for Lent. I really like these reading plans – they make me excited to dive into the Bible!
