Dear Peanut

Dear Peanut,
I promise we are trying to be good parents to you, but I just don't know how we are going to pull this off. This weekend was filled with a ton of to-do stuff to get ready for you, including a baby safety seminar, re-caulking our bathtub and birthing classes, but the biggest one was what we thought was putting an offer on a house. Last night we met with our Realtor to put together our first offer, we left feeling so excited we even went out and treated our self to expensive Gelato!!! All day I have been wondering about if they will accept it and then I see a missed call from my realtor, I quickly call her back and she informs me we forgot to sign the second set of documents and the offer won't go in until tomorrow. I'm seriously trying not to laugh, I really feel like we don't know what the heck we are doing. We are keeping our fingers crossed that tomorrow everything goes in smoothly and we don't' mess up again.
Love your crazy parents!

Wedding Season is picking up

In the past week my email has been flooded with brides contacting me about flowers!!! But so far I've had to turn down 2 brides all because their wedding is too close to the arrival of Peanut. I guess it was bad planning on our part to have a baby right in the middle of wedding season, however I'm very excited to be having a summer baby!

Worst Part of Waking Up is Decaf in your Cup

Only 23 more weeks of drinking this stuff! Oh the sacrifices I'm making for Peanut....

Surprise in the Kitchen

My co-worker strikes again. I think people are too afraid to cut into it, but I'm sure I'll be grabbing a piece once someone make the first move.

Baby on Board

Some may know some may not, but Chris and I will be expecting a little peanut around June 28th. We could not be more happy and for the past few months have been enjoying the blissful thoughts of having a baby around until reality sunk in last night and we began to panic.

It all started out innocently with a gmail chat to my friend who has a 18 month old, at first we were talking about architecture but then got onto the topic of what baby stuff we are going to need, I casually mentioned all car seats look the same so how hard is it to pick the right one.... she comes back with a link to her favorite one...apparently there is more to research than we thought, do the straps adjust easily, does it click into place easily, does in fit in a shopping cart, then is dawned on me?..... Does it fit in a shopping cart, how about will it fit into our tiny 2 door RSX car? So when we came home from dinner last night Chris and I started to chat about the car seat discussion I had with my friend, he tried to convince me that putting a car seat into an RSX was no problem until he starting googling what would fit. Results came up as NONE, no car seat will fit into an RSX and we couldn't stop laughing about this one guys comment to another couple:

"Grow up, You are going to be a father, so you need a nice 4-door car like a Camry or an Accord to carry your child around. When you are an old guy like me with your kids through college and out of the house, you can get a sports car again. "

We could not stop laughing, not because it was that funny but because I think it finally hit us that we are screwed. We now have 6 months to buy a HOUSE and a CAR, put on a National Conference, throw in a couple wedding flower gigs, pass an Architecture Structures exam, find a daycare without a 18 month wait list and oh yeah actually have the baby all while I'm big and fat.

So you ask where am I going with this.... the blog has been kinda dead lately but mostly because I haven't really known what to share with you all. So from here forward I'm going to talk about the 6 month road to bringing home peanut. Wish us luck because I think we will need it.

It's that time of year again...

...that's right it's DC Restaurant Week and I just made my first reservation for tonight at La Tasca. Yeah I know it's not some fancy smancy place but it's unlimited tapas so how can you go wrong. We're heading out tonight to see some friends that left us for good old New Jersey and are in town for work, I can't wait to hear all about their new addition to their family, Riley.
