Bullets -- Toddler Mardi Gras and Support Our Troops Valentines

Today's Thursday (You know that, of course), and all I've got is bullets:

* You can find a full post with some of my favorite NOLA girls here where I talk about our Mardi Gras endeavors while here in Texas. I can't wait for this year's play date!

* People keep reminding me how close this baby really is, so yep, we have big weekend plans to get the nursery a little closer to ready. And I also have "nursing bra" tabs open on my computer. Just a day in the life....

* Last night was my worst need-to-have-it-now type of pregnancy craving. I wanted some extravagant dessert like a piece of chocolatey cheesecake or decadent brownie or hot cookie in a mini skillet with ice cream on top and I wanted it all to myself. I settled for a less than spectacular milkshake as we ran out of ice cream and didn't have enough for the consistency to be much thicker than chocolate milk. I think I'm a good wife for this; I'm not going to lie. You're welcome, honey, for not sending you out! (You'd do it though if I asked because you're wonderful.) Enough, I know, get a room, right?

* I think not finding out the gender is a lot of fun, but right now I would really like to know. I guess it's part of the nesting and preparing, but it would be so helpful at this point!

* Santa brought Lightroom. I have no idea what I'm doing but want to be good at taking and editing pictures. Like yesterday.

* I should be napping or working out or doing something a bit more productive like glueing toddler handprints together for our group Valentine card to send with our care packages for Hugs for Soldiers. If you are looking for a service project to do with your kids, this one is great! Deadline is January 31, so get some cards, chocolate, and hand warmers together and support our troops!

Nursing TANKS are amazing. I didn't jump on the bandwagon until Noah was...well, old, but I love them!

I was so excited to see your name on our calendar for a guest post. :)

Can't wait to see your plans for the nursery!

One of my goals is to learn my camera and eventually some editing software like Lightroom.
