kitties and kiddies

Up until this point in time our 2 kitties have been our babies. They are hugged and kissed and played with constantly (when they are not sleeping of course)...We are just hoping that when Baby K arrives the kitties are not too jealous and can cope with the new addition to our family. We do know that our new kiddy will be taking up most of our time and we will have to make sure our kitties don't feel neglegted...We may have to invite friends and family over (namely my brother who loves to play with our animals) to spend special time with our furry babies...
anyway i thought I'd share a pic of our older baby Jamie sneaking a ride in our new bassinett-oh what a sight he was!!

my last day!!

Today was my last day of work. I can't believe I won't be working again until next year...still feels surreal and very dreamlike!! Everyone had the same advice for me- Get sleep now, while you can...and that is just what I plan on doing for the next week and a half!
My team threw me a surprise baby shower today. I can honestly say I was blown away! I knew SOMETHING was going on but I had no idea just how much prep work and planning they were actually doing. Here are some pics of the wonderful party they had for me :)

my new obsession

A few months ago I rediscovered the library. I had always liked reading but had gotten out of the habit for some unknown reason. So one rainy Saturday afternoon I decided to make a trip to our local library branch, I grabbed my hubby and drove to the library-he was in heaven as reading is just his thing (our house is filled to the brim with tonnes of books-all non-fiction unfortunately for me) I picked up a few books and enjoyed them immensely...but lately I have been going for the "chick lit" category. I don't know what it is about these books but I just can't get enough of them- they aren't as trashy as Harliquen Romance novels but they are generally very easy to read, involve some sort of love interest, and of course some type of conflict which inadvertantly always finishes with a happy ending...
My latest book is called Something Borrowed by Emily Griffin. It is about plain-Jane attorney Rachel who cannot find love but on the eve of her 30th birthday she ends up in bed with her best friends' fiance. AND of course they fall in love and the story just progresses from there, predictable but a good read none-the-less...
I have already requested Emily Griffin's next novel entitled Something Blue which is written from the view point of Darcy, Rachel's once best friend, whereas Something Borrowed was told from Rachel's standpoint. The first chapter or two was previewed in Something Borrowed so I think I will enjoy it just as much as I did the first book in this new series.


At least these books have reinstated my love of reading and I hope that eventually I will be inclined to get back to the more intellectual books of my past but for now I am superbly enjoying the chick lit genre.

I love my hubby

This morning my husband said to me "I better learn to change diapers." He is so funny and cute!! I think the realization hit him this morning that the baby will be here in exactly 2 weeks and he really hasn't a clue how to deal with babies! Sure he has held a new born (maybe twice) and kind of oohed and aawed at them but never had to deal with bathing, changing diapers and all the other niceties that come with new babies...
This is one of my favorite pics:

He looks so scared of breaking Daniel...hopefully he'll get better with our baby!!!

easy cooking 1,2,3...

Since I will be out of commision for about 6 weeks after the baby is born my husband will be responsible for feeding us...I am looking for some VERY EASY recipes that he can use. As of now he can make 1 dish- Chicken baked with rice and mushroom soup. It is tastey but I cannot imagine eating it everyday for the a whole 6 weeks!!!
I do plan on making a few things and freezing them so that we do have some good food to eat and I'm sure my parents will be able to help out a bit in the kitchen too but now is probably a really good time for hubby to learn to cook anyway!!
any suggestions PLEASE????
