Today we braved the below freezing weather -yes, ridiculous for Central Texas- and made a run to the grocery store. Besides restocking the fridge and pantry just in case the little bundle arrives sooner than later, I also created a collection of snacks and treats specifically for the hospital. I had a little too much fun. Granola bars, beef jerky, trail mix, flavored rice cakes, several types of sugar-free candy (for during labor, even though I still have a bag unopened from Wilder's birth Brian had gotten me) and even the game Boggle. I almost snagged various International Coffee tins -you know, the powered flavored coffee beverages in those cute rectangular tins? I restrained myself, albeit only slightly.
The car is packed with a quilt my grandma made me, 2 extra pillows, the bag of goodies, and a sleepover bag for Wilder with several days worth of clothing just in case he has to come with me to the hospital and be transferred to MiMa's from there. My bag, on the other hand, is pretty much packed but remains in my bedroom so I can still access my make up. I made sure to bring the cozy socks Betty gave me and the nursing nightgown/robe set my mother bought me to use with Wilder -it's white with hot pink toile, perfect for welcoming a little girl into the world.
This afternoon I made a little treat for the baby shower Betty and Brooke are throwing for me, white chocolate covered pretzels with pink sprinkles. I ADORE the fabulous blend of crunchy, sweet and salty chocolate covered pretzels provide. Fun texture, outrageous taste, super easy.
*Sigh* more (restless) waiting, but being productive. Now it's time I did something constructive -I think I'll tackle some written correspondence that is embarrassingly overdue. Have a wonderful day! You can count on hearing from me tomorrow, I've become oh-so-chatty in these last days of pregnancy. So, what are you doing?
