Fact Friday 11/14/13

Oh, hey! I'm back already. :)

L tends to go to bed a little earlier on Thursday nights after a long week of daycare and playing with her grandmas. And I currently have Fridays off, meaning I'm not running around like a mad woman Thursday nights making sure bottles are made, clothes are picked out, alarms are set, etc. It's quite nice actually! And I'm going to miss this terribly come January.

Anyhoo. Here's a little recap of what's been going on lately.

1. L's a little holy baby now. We held her baptism this past Sunday and it went better than I could have ever anticipated. Girlfriend hardly slept all day and was so content. She did so well in the church and I just loved how the ceremony went.

2. Confession: L never put her costume on, on Halloween. BUT, she rocked it the weekend before at a family party, and the day before at my work's Halloween party. Our little spaghetti and meatballs!

And I can't leave out my nephew, JR. How adorable is this family costume?!!

3. We pulled the trigger and ordered new wall-to-wall carpet for our family room. It's overdue. And is a real priority now that L spends so much time in there. We don't even know if there's a pad under the current carpet. It's terrible. We decided to stick with carpet since it's the only room in the house with carpet, and it will be nice and cozy as a certain someone becomes mobile.

Pictures like this make me cringe. Cannot wait for the new plush carpet!

4. I'm also coming to terms with the fact that the family room is becoming just that, a family room. There is no hiding the baby toys! And I don't even mind. :)

5. I finally had the chance to help out in the ravioli making process this year. It's a long day for all involved so I was happy to help this year. There were thousands of raviolis made. My Nona, Mom, and Aunts are nuts!

6. I joined Rent the Runway PRO. It's a year of shipping and insurance for a one-time fee of $30. Next weekend is my company's holiday party and the following weekend is my 10-year high school reunion. I just couldn't muster up the desire to go dress shopping. Crazy, I know. So this was totally worth it. Shipping & insurance is typically $15/rental so $30 for the whole year is a steal. We have 5 weddings already scheduled from May-Sept next year. Looking forward to renting some fun, new dresses over the next year! This dress is making its way to me next week. Hope it fits!

7. I can't believe L will be 4 months next week! Ah. Here are her 2 & 3 month photos.
 And an extra one I made for fun. Those cheeks! :)

8. And because this girl keeps growing, I've started getting her 6 month wardrobe together. 3 month LS shirts are getting a little too short these days. And we needed a few warm layers. I snagged all this on the Carters site and picked up these 2 (this and this) outfits at Macy's recently. Doing my best to stagger purchases since many 3 month items still fit....but it's a struggle.

9. Before I went back to work we took a trip up to Maine for a long weekend. I really wanted to put a post together with all of the pictures. The leaves were unreal this year! But I'm not holding my breath on that. So, here's a picture I snapped from the Height of Land. Gorgeous, right?

10. I don't know about you, but we woke up to snow here this morning! Yikes. Not ready for that just yet.

What are you up to this weekend?
We'll be relaxing over here! 

Have a fantastic weekend!
