My hair has finally gotten really long which means I'm ready to cut it off. Always happens. I just don't take the time to care for it. I'm debating though. Do I do it now or wait until after the baby is born and I start shedding like a dog?  I have 2 weeks before my appointment to decide.  eek!

I have recently inherited a lot of seasonal items from my mother's stash. I nw have some nice serving platters and dishes for the holidays. Do you stow it away in the kitchen or pack it away with the rest of your seasonal decor?

I am looking for a new book to read.  After a horrifying journey through Anna Karenina (it's seriously embarrassing how long it took me to finish that one) I have been hesitant to dive into anything else.  I did start Motherless Daughters for about the 4th time in a decade but not sure that I will actually stick through to the end (pregnancy does make me a little more emotional).  Any suggestions on a decent easy read?

I am trying to finish a photo wall on my stairs that I over a year ago?! It has been sifting through photos on the computer and reminiscing.   How did my baby get so big all the sudden?  I love that little girl so much and I can't believe I get to experience the joy of it all over again.  

Riesling hugging the baby(27 week)

Riesling is so excited about babies right now. The anticipation of our new baby must be so hard for her.  She is so loving and caring about the whole situation; kissing and rubbing my belly, talking about the baby all the time, and practicing her big sister skills with her baby doll.  She gets beyond excited to see other babies with friends, around the neighborhood, or even just our in public.  I have a feeling she will want to be overly helpful with some things!  And I know there are a lot of things she just doesn't see coming (like sharing her Mama!).

Anna Karenina was a horrifying experience for me as well. The only thing that kept me going was proving to the librarian that I could do it since she was so snarky when I took it out ("YOU'RE going to read THAT?").

Anyway, a couple recommendations: "Graceling" by Kristen Cashore or maybe "Eat, Pray, Love"?
