While Waiting

I have about 3 1/2 weeks until my due date. Mostly likely I will have four more weeks until actual baby day, going by my record so far. Suddenly though the weeks are counting down and perhaps it's nesting or maybe it's just the settling in of reality, but I'm realizing time is limited. I've got a list prepared of all that needs to be done (wash baby clothes, make lists for kids, prepare freezer meals, prepare freezer baby food for Gianna, rearrange nursery items to accommodate supplies for both littles, etc.) Not all time consuming things, but THINGS none the less. Again, I'm sure I've still got plenty of time.

In the midst of that are little things that we promised the kids we'd do before baby arrives. One of them was that we'd take an hour drive to stock up our pantry at Aldi's and Sam's Club, along with hitting up a new Cherry Berry yogurt bar.(Thanks, Jamie for the heads up!!)

We delivered on that promise over the weekend. End result: a stocked pantry and some very pleased yogurt-filled bellies.

Have you been to Cherry Berry? There are an assortment of flavors to choose from, then you load on the toppings (not too much though, because you are paying per ounce) and enjoy!

We each made our own and then taste tested between the four of us. White chocolate and chocoholic for mama; cookie monster for Lily; cheesecake and chocoholic for Jonah; vanilla bean for daddy. Top them off with fruits, candies, brownie pieces and Bobas to your liking and we were set.


We stopped by my favorite craft store while running errands and I bought several things for a couple projects before baby arrives. You know, because I have so much time on my hands. Although exhausted when we came home, I put this together last night as my 2012 reminder.

Now I'll just wait and see how things are looking after my doctor appointment this afternoon. And then, continue to wait.

Hope your Monday is off to a great start!


  1. I am praying for you as these days dwindle that you are able to keep your tranquility! Prayers!

  2. I'm with you, Girlie! We have a variety of yogurt bars in our area and went to one last week. Believe it or not, I tried this avacado flavored yogurt (could get a sample first) and it was DELISH! Sounds weird but wasn't. It was actually sweet and kind of reminded me of kiwi flavor.

    Hang in there!

  3. Ever since we went (and I didn't get to choose my own) I've been wanting a strawberry one with fresh strawberries on it!!

    Glad you tried it and liked it!

    We'll have to meet there this summer?!

    Thinking and praying for you....

  4. Mmmmm, what a great trip, and I love your word sign! The end is so hard, and You are in my thoughts and prayers!!!

  5. P.S. Just packed my hospital bag last night. Just need to toss in my nightgown.

  6. Oh goodie - a cherry berry is 'coming soon' up here near me!! We'll have to try it out...

    Continuing to pray for you as that due date nears...


You're so kind for dropping me a line!
