Today I took advantage of Martin being home and escaped for a few hours during nap time. I had a yummy lunch in peace and quiet. No one asked me to share my food or have a sip of my drink. Sound greedy? It was so nice. It also made me realize that once baby number 3 arrives it will be that much harder to have these afternoon outings. Sigh. I love being a mom, but I also love having time to myself. I will have to find a balance. While I was out I found the girls some real panties. They have a choice of Dora, Hello Kitty, and The Little Mermaid. They are washed and folded and waiting for tomorrow morning. I haven't showed the girls yet. They are going to love them. The girls are doing great with the potty and they are much further along in the process than I had anticipated.
Lastly, I am looking for a single serve coffee maker and was hoping that someone may have some advice. I have only looked on the Linens & Things website and the two that appeal to me are the Tassimo & Keurig. Both look very indulgent. I can check out a consumer best site, but thought I would throw the question out here as well. Hope everyone is enjoying summer!

The girls have pig-tails for the first time. I love them. They like them too. They were shaking their heads & laughing because the hair was tickling them. I have a feeling Dad will be a fan as soon as he sees the new hair-dos too.

There really wasn't much I had to do other than string the beads. I thought about embellishing it with beads from my collection but decided it was cute as-is. I have a few color combinations that I really like, and this is definitely one of them. The paper beads are from Martha Stewart's new line at Michaels. I really love the colors. I am sure the necklaces will end up in the girls jewelry box, but for now they are perched on my dresser as eye candy.

I was leery of going since I am on my own and attending the party meant the girls were going to miss their nap. We had a busy afternoon scheduled after the party and I wasn't sure how the girls would handle it, but not surprisingly they did great. Sabine (Jessica's mom) did a great job and we all had fun. The remaining afternoon was busy but not fun. We had people in and out of the house from 3pm till 6:45pm in preparation for the closing. The girls were a little cranky but it was manageable.
This was them at 7:30 pm. Sound asleep (in the wrong bed, but that's okay).
