the short list...

I am a regular "stalker" on to see what other soon-to-be moms have on their minds and most of the third trimester moms are marking their profiles with their short list of first indulgences after baby is born. I thought it was a delightful thing to focus on to get me through these last few weeks! (At last check I am 1cm, so while she's not quite ready to make her debut, it sure is a start!)

1.) Sleeping on my stomach. Oh how I miss that...

2.) A giant fat ham sandwich from the Sandwich Block. White toast, lettuce, tomato, colby jack cheese, mayo and mustard. Top that off with the LARGEST fountain coke available. And maybe throw in a blue raspberry ICEE.

3.) A delightfully icy cold New Castle Ale.

4.) Top that off with a frozen strawberry margarita from Julio's Camino Real.

5.) The last on my list is being able to paint my toenails again without wallowing around on the floor! I can't wait to try out my new polish colors from e.l.f. for only $1!!!

The end of a shabby era...

I had heard from my sis-in-law that Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic was going out of business. I was hoping that it was a nasty rumor. Unfortunately, my dissapointment was confirmed when I checked the Shabby Chic blog today. The poor economy was just too much for Ms. Ashwell's online store and most of her bricks and morter stores as well. However, she will still sell her Simply Shabby Chic line at Target stores for the time being. Rachel commented on her blog that she is currently in England working on a book and that while it is goodbye for now, it won't be forever. I give Rachel and her inspired line the credit for my love of all things shabby and will continue to always be a shabby chic girl.
