Baby Loretta's Corner

why I blog... today has been one of those days that remind me of why i blog. i do this site to focus my energy on the best parts of my day or week. to put my life in a perspective that reminds me that i actually am so blessed and happy even when i'm trying to be overwhelmed with the stresses of life. i looked forward to writing this post all freaking day today (a really long, kind of really bad day) because i knew it would make me happy and wipe away a few bouts of tears. 

tagline for blogging --> blog therapy because when you're pregnant wine therapy ain't happenin 

le sigh! now if the plumbing fairy would just take mercy and sprinkle some awesome dust on our rental's sad pipes i would stop wishing i could curl up on a bean bag chair with a jug of whiskey and goth out to Elliot Smith for a few hours... goths still goth out to ES don't they? 

so i want to share with you baby Loretta's corner of our bedroom. until we move into a larger space this summer, she'll be sharing our room with us which is just fine by me as we co-sleep anyways. unfortunately my POS5000 laptop decided to stop getting wi-fi so it had to stay put in the same corner we earmarked for the baby. but i think we built Loretta's space around my mini-blog-station in a way that's very sweet and functional for our needs during her first few months. 
the dresses on the wall are my mom's own baby dresses dating back to the 50s. 

what do you think of not having a changing station? we thought we could just use a towel on the foot of our bed. are we crazy?

related... then, on friday, my coworkers threw a surprise baby shower for me, the thoughtfulness of which would have been enough to melt my brain in the first place. they thought of all my favorite foods (broccoli cheddar soup, chicken noodle, veggies, special almond bark chocolate from the fancy grocery, red velvet brownies, root beer, cake) and balloons, flowers, streamers, a sign printed for little Loretta... it was just so beautiful and beyond cool. on top of all this, they made (made!) this beautiful crib/rocker for our family... 
made! unreal right? i mean, so unreal. i just love it so much. i have no words...

i wish i could showcase it better than this picture up against the fireplace does, but we have to move part of our sectional out of the living room (and into a bonfire) before we can fit the chair in, which is awesome by me because our sectional was cruelly and unusually murdered by our dog over the past few months since we moved here. it's dead. i'm excited to get it out and have this beautiful chair/rocker in its place!

thank you for sharing my happiness with me here. it really did put me in a better mental place just to focus on these little perfect spaces within our chaotic home. the imperfect stuff will hopefully be fixed soon. hopefully before Et makes her debut! Two and a half weeks left til d-day, i wonder if i'll make it? starting to have little contractions pretty frequently, eek!

Sorry to say, there are tons with predators on the web. Sperm types and also personal types. Keep in mind with con artists and also fraudsters. There are actually individuals on the web whom earn a living out of conning individuals by means of pretending [url=http://beautifulcoachbackpacks2t.webs.com/]coach backpacks online[/url] to be desperate for money and asking for help or wanting to meet up to get a visa or passport.Long distance relationships can seem very romantic. Think carefully about meeting anyone who lives a long way away. It may look very romantic and exciting now but will it still seem like that when the date is over and they are hundreds of miles away?
Under no circumstances meet a much different person from a silent unpoopulated area. Usually meet from a open put. Convey to somebody you possibly can faith and also depend on in which you are going and also make sure you possess your current mobile or portable [url=http://coachfactoryhandbag3e.webs.com/]coach factory handbag[/url] phone on you. Tell them you will let them know when you return home. You may well think it is a good idea to meet for a drink the first time so that you do not lose a whole evening to what might be a wasted and pointless meet. Think outside the box. People now meet up for a drink during their lunch hour when it is a first meet and then perhaps arrange a much longer meet when they are more sure of the person. Others meet for a drink after work and then go on to a whole evening with a [url=http://ccoachonlineoutlet.com/]Coach Factory Online[/url] trusted friend after. Serial daters can fit in dozens of first meets in a week! I find out a lot more about them BEFORE meeting and only meet a few that I know I will not regret meeting. This is how to meet a date online.
