My sister-in-law, Mindy, brought her camera over today to take a few pictures of my new dress. Well, of me in my new dress. Of course, we've had perfectly gorgeous weather for several days in a row now - 75-80 degrees, sunny and breezy. But today? Well, rainy and 65. Not exactly summer dress-wearin' weather, but whatever.
Wince. I hate looking at photos of myself. But, the dress is very pretty and I love it. It goes almost all the way down to my toes:
And pretty soon, it'll be warm enough to wear it again. Like, Thursday or Friday. And maybe next week once or twice, too.
Now for the Something Else New:
I have been holding in this secret and thought I might burst from it. But now that everyone who needs to know first-hand knows, I can spill it.
Mindy and Joe are going to have a baby!! We are all so excited! We haven't had a baby in my side of the family since Emma (8 years ago) and everybody's on cloud nine. I keep looking at Chris and, really, anybody nearby and randomly squealing out, "I'm getting a baby!" Even though I know perfectly well this baby is not mine, exactly. But I have serious plans to hold and entertain and love and feed and...hug him and squeeze him and call him Geor...heh. Sorry. Got carried away there.
I had a crafting agenda for this year. All the projects have been nicely queued up in my mind for these last couple of months. But now? That slate is wiped clean. My future is now filled with baby sweaters to knit and booties and hats! Woo! This is going to be great! I'm gettin' a baby! And if you have a minute, pop over to Mindy's blog and give her some lurve. Welcome her into the mommy club, or just say congrats if you're not in the club yet yourself.
