Weekend Update Easter 2012

I hope everyone had a great Easter! We had a nice weekend.

Saturday we went yard sailing for the first time in a while. We've had an unusual string of bad weather and other commitmments keeping us from our Saturday routine.

It was my first time to go since finding out about the baby. It is going to be so hard holding off until we find out the gender to purchase things. I looked at several items and asked John if they looked "gender neutral" or not, but to be honest, it's hard to find things that are. Even something all tan seems to say "boy". At first I was thinking I would try to buy all the big things- like a car seat, stroller, swing, play pen etc... in neutral themes so it could be used for the next baby no matter what. I am starting to see that might be a little hard to do.

Anyway, I did get some things...
$2. I realize we can't use if for a good year, but it was quite a steal. Plus I love the compactibility of spring floats.

$10. I'm told I'll want one later. It had a couple rips but I sewed them up this afternoon.
$5. Watched a YouTube video and the Moby wrap seems easy enough to use. I think I am going to like it. Gracie not so much.
I also got 6 hardback children's books for $5. I snatched them up because they are classic stories that I remember reading as a child- like Chicken Little, The Three Little Pigs, Squirrel Nutkin and the Little Red Hen.
I also got a couple things for myself- some black flats (that rub my heel, glad I only paid $1) and an interesting necklace, also $1. I got quite a few things altogether. I probably spent too much :)

In the later afternoon I went to the beach with some long-time friends. It was pretty windy but bearable up until about 6pm then it got too chilly. After heading home we all stopped together for mani/pedis! Well, I got a shellac mani only. My toes are ok :)

Easter Sunday we went to church and then out to lunch at a steakhouse. Yumm-o!
Last year John made me an egg hunt. This year I made him one :) I also made little baskets for him and mom. Mom got me a great "grown-up" basket filled with Estee Lauder products and Bath and Body Works lotion.
Mom an I (my yard sale necklace too!)

I can't wait til we get in the house and I can really start to rack up at yard sales- since I'll actually have somewhere to put it!

Happy Easter!
