Did a Little Shopping

First of all, I really want to say thanks to every single person who reached out to me/us this week. To all of you who commented on my "Pity Party" post, phoned, emailed etc. THANK YOU! Your love and support overwhelms me!

So, I did a little shopping in the last couple of weeks much to Yvan's chagrin.

Ordered some books from Amazon for the on-line book club I am in.




I ordered - "The Train To Djibouti", "Parenting Your Internationally Adopted Child" and since I already had this month's children's book I ordered "A Perfect Orange - A Tale from Ethiopia". One of my weaknesses is books. I love new books - I love the smell and being the first person to open the book.

All three books look really good - the parenting book is so far already very interesting! You will notice that little Grissom wants to help me read them too.

Thanks to Rhonda posting about some retail therapy she did - I decided to do some too. (Yvan said to say "ya, thanks Rhonda!" - he he)

I bought this cute little onesie

*Edit - the onsie is from Etsy click here :)




















I also ordered this cookie cutter in the shape of Ethiopia




I am really excited about this because every year I do a baking exchange at Christmas with girlfriends. There is usually about 6 of us. We select and bake one of our favourite treats and then we exchange them. So, we end up with 6 dozen different types of baking and you only had to bake one kind. It is a good excuse for us to get together during the holidays and it makes baking for this crazy time of year easy peasy! This year I am doing Gingerbread cookies in the shape of E! Fun!

I also found these baby bottles from Think Baby at a store in town here.



The bottles are BPA free which is always good right? At least that is what THEY have been saying. I only bought two because we don't even know if our kidlet will need bottles but it seemed like a good idea at the time :)

Now, all I/we need is a holiday!!!

Oh ya, we're taking one IN 5 DAYS!!!!!
