Happy Birthday, Boo!

This morning Ant and I went to Old Navy. I had a 25% off coupon that expired today and wanted to get some maternity pants. Most Old Navys don't have maternity sections in-store, but the one closest to us actually has a small section, so we lucked out! I was in desperate need of some maternity pants. The past month I've just been schlepping around in yoga pants. Yoga pants are all well and good, however, I was honestly getting a little depressed wearing them every day. I have some jeans that I can still wear, but they are super uncomfortable after like an hour.

So, maternity pants were a much needed item. I ended up getting two pairs. One pair of flare jeans that were $25 with the coupon and another pair of skinny jeans that were on clearance for $21. I'm wearing the flare jeans right now and OH.EM.GEE. They're incredible! I just might have to retire zippers and buttons from my wardrobe from now on and always get maternity pants, haha!

We also picked up a cute little Batman onesie that was on clearance (surprise, surprise!). I usually don't like character-themed clothing, but this one is kind of distressed for a vintage look, so I like it. 


This evening I met my dad and (future) step-mom at Costco to price out their diapers. I have heard good things about the Costco brand and wanted to compare them to the prices on Amazon Mom and Diapers.com. I was really surprised to find out that some of the Huggies diapers and wipes were actually cheaper per item than the Costco brand! I haven't checked out the online prices yet, but when I do I'll let you guys know what the best deals are!

We were only at Costco for about 45 minutes but let me tell you, my feet were KAH-ILLING me when I got home. And I wore my most comfy shoes, too! Uggh. But I was able to pick up my favorite turkey roll-ups for dinner, yum!

Happy Birthday, Boo!

Tomorrow is Ant's 27th birthday! Like I mentioned, all of our baby buys from yesterday counted towards his present. But, of course I got him something else to go along with all the practical baby stuff.


I got him the Kodak Easyshare m52 point and shoot camera. I ordered it from Target.com during their Black Friday sale last week. I realize the camera looks a little more magenta than Ant would probably like, but I swear it looked red on the internet! It came in this morning, so I let Ant open it early. I've never had a Kodak before (I'm a Canon girl), but it seems like a decent camera for the price and really easy to use.

The coolest thing about the camera is that it has some really neat filters built right in. You can get a vintage looking photo with the camera, no PhotoShop needed! There are also a ton of different modes to take the best pictures in any situation (portrait, sport, panorama, sunset, fireworks, sunlight, etc.). Another neat feature is the capability to share photos and HD video to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube with just the touch of one button! But, probably the best part is the size of the camera. It's smaller than Ant's cell phone, so it'll fit perfectly in his pocket!

This camera is perfect for an amateur photographer. I was half tempted to get Ant a DSLR camera, but they're a little out of my price range and I doubt Ant would want to take the time to learn how to use it. So, this little point and shoot is perfect to record anything and everything our little guy does when he's born.

It's hard to believe this will be the 6th birthday Ant and I are celebrating together! He even still uses the first birthday present I ever got him.


Sorry if the wallet is offensive to anyone, but it's a nod to Ant's favorite movie, Pulp Fiction. I think I paid $40 for it off some random website, and it's held up quite well after all these years.

Not sure exactly what we're going to do tomorrow night, dinner somewhere nice probably. Along with homemade Sprinkles cupcakes :).

Happy Friday, everyone!
