Good morning friends! Happy Monday! Did you all have nice weekends? Thanks so much to those who left such sweet comments on my post on Friday. I'm adjusting to my new normal and it's not so bad so far. The worst has been missing my morning orange juice and not splurging on my weekend latte, but that's been about the hardest thing! The positive things? Sugar free butterscotch pudding is really tasty and Crystal Light makes a margarita flavored drink mix. I think I can rock this thing ok!
Lots of baby stuff this weekend, we took our childbirth preparation class. Nothing makes this entire thing more real than that, let me tell you. It was pretty awesome though - the Pants Monkey's aunt is a childbirth educator and ended up being the one teaching the class. You might think that would be awkward for us, but actually it was really nice. She's unbelievably awesome and makes you feel so at ease. We learned a lot and had some great conversations about what we want when the time comes. I'm glad we did it as early as we did so we have plenty of time to plan.

Sunday we slept in, then I met up with Lori and we swung into Amanda's fantastic Tandem Vintage sale. Sad panda, she had so many pretty plaid skirts that I'd love to wear this fall, but there is no way the bump will fit at this point! That's ok though, I found some fun kitty cat earrings and a rather ridiculous cat wall hanging that I'm going to put up with another cat picture a dear friend gave me. Crazy cat lady FTW! After the sale we went to Target so Lori could help me pick out makeup. I definitely have some better ideas of what to do with my face now!
I headed home, had a wonderful dinner out on the deck with my Pants Monkey and then settled in to watch the Emmys - what a GIANT disappointment! I had a mild panic attack because our TV was acting up and we don't have cable so I was worried I wasn't going to be able to watch - yeah, I don't know that it would have been the end of the world to miss this year's show. It felt like everyone was rushing, struggling to read the teleprompter, the "In Memoriam" spotlights seemed like a good idea but were poorly executed. And I adore Modern Family, Breaking Bad and Jim Parsons - but at the same time, spread the love a bit on the winners. I didn't find anyone's dress all that stunning besides maybe Claire Danes - she's always a class act though, that wasn't much of a surprise. But the show overall was just yuck. Anyone else watch? What did you think?
