First order....

So I just placed my first order for maternity clothes! :) I gave away the majority of my maternity clothes this summer and don't have much to work with....especially for work clothes. I know I won't be needing maternity clothes for awhile but wanted to start looking at sales right away and try and find some good deals and boy did I ever. I received a friends and family coupon for Old Navy, Gap, and Banana Republic where you save 30% off your total purchase so online I went. I found four adorable tops and with shipping and the promo code I only paid $39. Can't beat that!!! I'm stoked. I just hope they look as cute on as they did on the web. Today was an ok day....I have been soo incredibly tired this week and today was no exception. The day flew by though which helped but I took a nap right after dinner tonight and am now wide awake. Tomorrow I'm taking a spinning class with my friend Jill at the Y and am looking forward to that! I have a DNA extraction project I have to finish for my genetics class and then of course there is laundry and chores that we'll need to attack as well. My girlfriend Amy, and her two kids, Ava and Quinn, came over for a playdate tonight and it was a lot of fun to hang out and catch up. We've known each other since we were 18 and she is one of my dear friends. It's actually kind of funny because I met her when I first moved to Wisconsin and was going to college and working at Sears. She was working there at the time too. Her boyfriend at the time, Nick, who is now her husband, has been best friends with my husband Chad since they were 3. At the time I didn't know Chad and while Amy and I were friends for 3 years before I ever met Chad I always heard about Nick's friend Chad. Well then I met Chad's sister through the church I was going too a year after I moved to WI. We were good friends for 2 years and I heard more about Chad but never met him. Then one summer I started a young adult Bible study and a group of about 20 of us hung out all summer and got together multiple times during the week to hang out. And that is where I met Chad. We became friends and after a year started dating, then got married. So now Amy and I are dear friends and our husbands have been best friends forever! Isn't it funny how God works things out. Anyhow Nick is in the Army and is overseas and has been for 14 months. He was able to come home in July for 18 days when Amy had Ava. He should be home for Christmas if all goes according to plan. I don't know how Amy does it with a 2 year old and 4 month old all by herself, but I'm glad she was able to move back home while he is away. My boys and Quinn have a blast together and Amy and I were able to catch up a bit which was nice. She is my scrapbook partner in crime and normally we get together on Friday nights after the kids go to bed. I drag my stuff over to her house and we take over her dining room table and scrap for a couple of hours. So that's my evening in a nutshell. I have a feeling i'll be up for awhile puttzing around on the web. I'm in seach of a cute baby sling.
