In like a Lion, out like a Lamb

That's how I'm hoping March 2010 treats us this year.  I am so ready for summer, I just want to skip spring and April showers completely and just go straight to 85 degrees with 85% humidity.  I want to sweat and have flat, limp hair for crying out loud.  I am OVER winter. 

Moving on.

We had a lovely weekend despite having to attend a funeral.  If you've ever been to an Irish Catholic funeral then you know they are long (like 5 hrs) and have ample amounts of alcohol flowing (to get you through the 5 hrs).  I swear Irish Catholics can turn anything into an excuse to throw a party or luncheon, what ever you want to call it. 

The Terps beat Virginia Tech this weekend in a double overtime which was awesome and made me reminisce my about my glory days college years spent watching b-ball.  Oh the memories.

In EXCITINGJUMPUPANDDOWN news my brother and sister in law left for CA today because they are adopting a baby boy and he is due on Wednesday!! We're hoping he comes on time so they can hurry home and I can spoil him with presents. 

So do any mommy's have any suggestions for must haves with a newborn/infant/baby boy??  Since they're adopting she didn't have a traditional shower and I know she has the "essentials" but were there anythings you just could not live without that you could suggest I get for them.  
Any suggestions would be much appreciated!!

Are you all ready for the bachelor?? Since I hate surprised I totally read the spoilers so I'm hoping Reality Steve was WRONG!!

  1. I'm right there with you on wanting summer! I am ordering warm weather clothes and accessories to get me through this cold :)

  2. When I lived in Maryland, a coworker found that her baby girl could not live without the Twilight Turtle! They are so adorable, I bought one for Boyfriend's sister when she was pregnant.. Now that her baby is born, she can't live without it either!


  3. Congrats on being a new auntie! How exciting!

  4. I can't wait for the summer to finally get here! I'm ready to sweat instead of freeze.

    Oh my, the bachelor tonight was crazy and if I never hear the song, "On the wings of love" again I will be forever happy.

  5. Congrats on being a new auntie!! That is so exciting! I would say my #1 thing that I needed when Em was a baby was a good swaddling blanket. I used Kiddopomus Swaddle Me Blankets and they worked like a charm to keep Emma asleep and Mommy and Daddy happily in bed! And of course, diapers, formula and wipes are good too!

  6. amen, i too want that 85 degree crazy humidity that is a maryland summer. bring it!
