me likey.

I can't even begin to describe how excited I am for fall.

Maybe it's the fact that I've carried ten extra pounds around on my belly as well as seventeen extra pounds on my arm, that made me so daggum hot this year, but I've been freaking miserable. And I'm over it.

I find the older I get and the more my body changes and I lose the desire to run around in a bikini all summer, the more I loathe the hot weather.

Hate, hate, hate it.

I'm tired of being sweaty, smelly, and ga-ross.

I'm just ready for fall.

Fall brings about so many goodies, but I have to say my favorite part, well one of them, is the fact that my day of birth falls in just a few short days.

And this year, I've got a fierce case of the "I wants".

1)Bumbleride Indie

I've spoken of my desire to own this before, but I have yet to acquire it. Baby Girl and I both think Mama needs this big time!

2)a good pair of boots

This pair in brown would be heavenly. I am dying to have a good pair of boots. Problem; I apparently have elephantitis of the calf. Meaning, I can't get boots over my honkers. Boo. I want boots!

3) a new pair of running shoes. Ties in with numero uno. And that 10 pounds on my belly.

4) some new clothes. I have nothing that fits. But being as how I don't want to stay at this size for long, I just want some cardigans and scarves and such to play up the shirts I have now. Gift cards are acceptable!

5) a "me" day.

I love my child more than life, but I need a day to go take care of me. Mani/pedi, time with a good book, maybe a massage.. le sigh.. I just need to feel like a woman again!

I can't believe I'll be twenty eight in ten days. Where did the year go?!?

I LOVE that stroller, but $470... GULP. And, I could totally use a "me" day too!

I have such a bad case of the "I Wants", too! Only here, it's Spring, so I'm dreaming about tank-tops and cute sandals :-)

Happy early birthday!!!

I want a stroller like that too only I'll have to settle for a cheaper Target version!

I also need a me day! Pedicure and a massage!

Happy Birthday! I think your 17 lbs of armfat has transferred across the interwebs to my arms. I'll take it on for your birthday.


(I have the baby jogger citi mini elite and LOVE it. Can't wait to jog with it!)

A me day sounds kind of awesome! I also want to get new sneakers, preferably the reebok run tones. I know that the studies show they don't do anything significant, but I'd like to try! I'm a sucker for a gimmick sometimes!
