Daddy is in big trouble!

With a new little one on the way, I have been bitten by the baby shopping bug! Lucky for G, I haven't bought anything yet, but this little one who won't arrive until April, has a Christmas list a mile long (at least)! Right now, I am coveting the Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bags! These are some beautiful snazzy bags! I figure, if I gotta carry around supplies for two little ones, I might as well have a beautiful bag to do it with! I'm having a hard time deciding between the Coco Roll bag and the Miso Lovely Roll bag. I'm also really liking their bedding too, I'm gonna have to find a place to check those out in person! WOW! I am in love!

Aside from all the shopping wishes, I'm also thinking of all the things to scrap before this little one makes its' appearance. I saw this great idea in the Simple Scrapbooks Slice of Life special edition book. I should have bought the book when I saw it at Barnes and Noble, but I passed and now I regret it. Next time I see it, I'm snatching it up. There were lots of great ideas in it. The one great idea, that I am definatley going to lift for this little one is an altered board book. I wish I remember who the artist was, but it was based on the Dr. Seuss book Oh, the Places You'll Go!
It was photos of the baby's first home, the crib, the bathtub, and other things that the baby would experiece in the next year. There was a bit of journaling for all of it. It was the sweetest, most adorable idea I've seen in an idea book in a long time. There were a ton of other great ideas as well. Definately something I must pick up! Why! Oh! Why! did I pass the first time!

My mojo has finally made a reappearance, but of course I don't have any of my scrap stuff with us on our little trip here. G said I would regret not bringing it along. Ssshhh! Don't tell him he was right! I have all these ideas spilling out of my head, and no stuff to accomplish it with! We did go to a local scrapbook store here. It is the cutest little store (besides my usual favorite
The Garage). She had tons of stuff that I have been looking for! I found the new American Crafts felt and plastic flowers, the new Cloud 9 Valentines line as well as the Heidi Grace Valentines line. It made me feel a little better to do some scrap shopping. I miss all my scrap buddies at the Garage though.

Since I don't have my scrap stuff, I'm hoping to get some good reading done. Keep your fingers crossed for that though.....I always have lofty goals of reading lots while away from home, but it doesn't always happen.

Laurie! Congrats to you and the family! :) Wow, a little one on the way! I'm so happy for you!

Miss scrapping with you. Stopped by Suzy's the other day and I remembered our crazy Tuesday crops... I need to get MY mojo back too.

Carl and I are actually expecting too! We're due in February! :)

Hopefully we get to see each other before then! Have a great Thanksgiving!
