Quick Takes Vol. #59

  1. Happy August!! August has come to mean vacation with ocean breezes, time with family sharing hot dogs, ice cream and good seafood.
  2. This year it also means approximately one more month till Cashew's arrival, and therefore making ready. The bins with newborn clothes are out of storage but not yet washed, the cradle is still filled with blankets and other random stuff, and car seat base needs to be installed.
  3. Enjoyed a wonderful lunch date with Elizabeth of That Married Couple. In person she is taller, but every bit as warmly wonderful as you would expect reading her blog. Another get together has been planned for the spring when we will be able to meet the coming babies on the outside.
  4. Lisbeth was initially somewhat confused to meet someone with the same name, later deciding it was great fun!!
  5. Personal accomplishment of the week was completely a continuing education module for my license. Really nice to have that in the done pile pre-vacation and baby.
  6. Very excited to have finally lined up a contractor to replace the fence which has been falling slowly for awhile and quickly since this winters storms. Happily anticipating an enclosed backyard very soon.
  7. Wishing all a good and restful weekend!!

  1. Yikes! The last month of pregnancy, both the longest and shortest of the entire pregnancy. And how nice you got to meet a bloggy friend!

  2. That's so wonderful you and Elizabeth got to meet! I wish we all lived closer!

    I'm kind of getting nervous about the arrival of my own baby- I have nothing ready! I have my 2 showers this weekend so hopefully after that I will get to work preparing!

  3. It was great meeting you and Elisabeth, too! :)

  4. Ugh! You are a totally ahead of me...We're due Thanksgiving and we pretty much have nothing accomplished - just painted the nursery and bought a stroller. Granted, it is our #2 (with almost 5 yrs apart in age....)

  5. Sounds like a great month! So fun that you got to meet up with a fellow blogger IRL. I've yet to have the opportunity, but there's a whole list of people I'd love to meet if it worked out. Hope you had a great weekend!
