I'm back from a very productive weekend of Ikea shopping and house cleaning. With my due date about a week away, I realize that my days of solo shopping trips to Ikea on lazy Saturday afternoons may be limited, (which is really too bad, because solo shopping is one of my favorite sports, I'm very good). Hopefully this next chapter in our lives will be just as much fun as solo shopping, and I will not miss it one iota! Speaking of which, I should warn you that it's possible that sometime this week or the next (hopefully not the week after that) I may be mysteriously absent for a few days (maybe not that mysteriously absent, but absent none the less). Rest assured, I will be back with photos of the little one and updates just as soon as I am able. In the mean time, I will just keep on bloggin about pretty things. Keeping busy keeps me patient!
Speaking of patience... I found these amazingly detailed cookies on Sweet Ambs. Martha Stewart, eat your heart out! They are just so... perfect! I made lemon cookies the other day and got so sick of scooping batter after about 20 cookies, I started making them HUGE so I could be done. I can't imagine having the patience to create these little wonders by the dozens.

You won't miss the solo shopping (well... maybe a little), because the trade-off will be totally worth it. My little angel is turning one in a few days and I can't believe how fast it went. She's the best thing I have ever done. Good luck and congrats! Oh and great cookies by the way.

how incredibly exciting for you! my best friend (who lives three blocks away) had a baby in november and it was so much fun to be by her side during her whole pregnancy. lots of luck with the delivery!

p.s. cookies are gorgeous, but i'd feel like a jerk for taking a bite and ruining all of their prettiness!

Good luck with the delivery, I hope it's short and sweet, and comes on time or even a little early. I was more than a week late with my little sweetie, and it gets old fast.
