Labor Day 2011 & More

I had a fantastic weekend with some fantastic people.  I definitely made the most of my three days off in a row.  Our many adventures included knitting, movie watching, pedicures, italian cream sodas, baby shower (not for me, for my friend), baby clothes sorting, more movies, raiding the Carters 50% off sale, Trader Joes (oh how I miss thee), Melting Pot, and so much more.  

This is my friend Kate and I at her baby shower.  We are kind of orange because the walls and the ceiling were all totally orange, but what ya gonna do?  It was a fun shower and she got many thoughtful gifts from friends and family.

The weather also took a dramatic turn and suddenly became beautiful.  It was so nice we took multiple walks to take advantage of it.

In the world of knitting to prep for Indie Emporium, I got a wonderfully luxurious merino and cashmere cowl knit up and I have a hat going that will match.  It is a wonderful deep green and I can't wait to get pictures to share it with you.  I also got back to some baby hats and I hope to get a few more of those done fairly soon.  I'm really excited about the inventory I will have for this show, I think it will be some of the most decadent overall inventory I have ever presented at a show.  So I am holding my breath and crossing my fingers that it is received well.

I suppose its time to get ready to go to work, but if I am being honest I must admit that I really don't want to.  I hardly slept a wink because now instead of just one hip hurting they both hurt and neither one wishes to be laid on but I can't sleep on my stomach (duh) or my back.  If anyone else has been through this and has a favorite body or maternity pillow, speak up!  I spent half the morning researching them and they are so expensive.

I've never been to Trader Joe's, but everyone says it's awesome. I'm sorry your hip is bothering you, baby Mama. :-(
