Finally, I can sit down and write out my thoughts.
Last weekend started with me participating in a Baby Bargain sale...I didn't just look around, I actually had a table and sold items. It was a nice setup, all baby to 5 year old items, all in one place, for only 5 hours from set up to tear down.
Crazy, no? After all, I am pregnant.
Not to fret, I didn't unload everything baby I have, honest! I did sell my highchair, which I could never find room for in the odd shaped rooms of my old house. I sold a couple of big little ty.kes pieces that the twins would not use for years and were just taking up space. Most of all, I sold a ton of Miss O.'s 3T and 4T clothes. Clothes that were just sitting in bins, after the local consignment shop had taken all they wanted from them.
I managed to make $100 in just over 3 hours!
Best of all, as I walked around the building just before the sale started, my eyes landed on a crib. A crib that matched Miss O.'s crib. Same color, same brand, different model. I couldn't believe it. The sign said $25. I practically sprinted back to my table, and told M. to go take a look. About 10 minutes later, he walked in with part of the crib. He had managed to talk them down $5, so I got the perfect crib for $20!
I'm so happy, because I had really thought I wouldn't end up with another crib until after the twins were born. Now, I'm itching to figure out the nursery decorations.
After the sale, it was time to finish Miss O.'s birthday cake.
She had requested a Tink.erbell theme this year, and wanted marble cake. I ended up doing the bigger layer "triple chocolate fudge" and the smaller one "marble". Both layers were filled with chocolate buttercream.
Overall, I thought it turned out cute. I did try a new buttercream recipe and it set up a lot quicker than some of my others. I was disappointed that it cracked quite a bit, but Miss O. was happy.
Finally, if you've made it all the way through this rambling, I'll reward you with my 20 week belly shot.
As for what's baking in there....PJ from "Infertility On The Brain" and K from "Our Box Of Rain" got it right!
We're expecting a GIRL and a BOY!!!!
Both babies looked great on Monday. Baby A, the girl measured 11 oz., up from 5 oz. a month ago. Baby B, is for boy, weighed in at 12 oz, doubling from his last weigh in at 6 oz.
I am SO happy and blessed.
