Hola Chicas,

I was up at 3am this morning with Braxton Hicks contractions… they’re becoming stronger and a bit more frequent. So so scary. To take my mind off of them, I ate a cup of yogurt and watched Sunday’s episode of Boondocks (OMG… ‘cross dressing for Christ’… epic episode). This was pretty effective for a while, but I’ve been quite anxious lately and my mind wanders a lot.

I have a due date of August 20th, but I know she’s not gonna hang out until then. I’ll be considered full term on July 30th… and I feel deep down that sister girl will be making her big debut shortly thereafter (seriously, it feels like she’s gonna fall out my butt). So all of this was racing through my mind this morning at 3am… I’m NOT ready… she IS ready, and ain’t waiting on me…the nursery is still currently a junky office… I haven’t read all of my ‘parenting books’ yet, and the biggest anxiety provoking thought of all, ‘will I even be a good mom?!’ Before July gets here, I need to sit my ass ‘on the couch’ and let y’all therapize me :0) No joke. I plan to do a post very soon on my thoughts on impending motherhood.

This was supposed to be a short post. All of the above was to explain why I decided to take a trip to Tarjay today. We’re not ready. Period. And I need to rectify that. I’ve got a living room full of baby stuff from you gals (thank you!), fam, and friends, and we haven’t done our part yet. My sweet granny sent me money to buy a bassinet for baby back in April, and I had yet to do so. I went today and bought the super cute sleigh style bassinet to go in my room, plastic tubs to pack up the office, and this super cute headband. I know we’re always on the hunt for cute cheap accessories… this is an easy one to snag 🙂

It was not in the hair department. There’s a section when you first walk in to most Targets… it’s near the Juniors department, and has like a ‘celeb’ theme. There’s always colorful scarves, big handbags, and jewelry. Well, they had three headbands on display– a brown one, a black one, and a color that is escaping me right now. They’re going for $6.99 and are adorable! I was rocking a bun today and after the lady rang me up, she asked if I wanted to put the band in a separate bag. I told her, ‘nope, I’ll wear it, lol’. And I did… it totally jazzed up my bun 🙂

I’ll probably go back tomorrow and get the other colors. I like that it doesn’t give me a headache (most headbands do), and has what looks like a goody ouchless headband underneath the material to keep it from sliding off. Flawless design… couldn’t have made it better myself 😉 Oh, and the flower is detachable!

Later Gators,
Nik

p.s. Packing up the office today… any takers to come and put the crib, changing table, bassinet, bouncer, stroller, and jumperaoo together? Oh, and why in the hell does one little person need so much (colorful) stuff?! Good grief!
