Most days feel like they’re just flying by. But today was one of those days that I’ll remember for a long time. At 12:01am today I delivered my first baby!! I was concentrating so hard to not shake and look terrified (b/c I was just a little bit…). This was the mom’s first baby and she did great. She had a relatively quick labor, which I’m sure we’re both thankful for! The baby girl was so cute (so much hair!) and it was crazy to be the first person to ever hold her. I even got to stitch mom up afterwards. Its so stressful to stitch someone that’s awake, even though I know she couldn’t feel anything. Congrats to her and baby!! I love watching the immediate bonds that form between mom and baby
What better way to start off 2012 than by buying things…
Last month was an extremely successful, albeit unintentional, saving month. Love it when that happens!! Consequently, I have a pretty darn vacant “items bought” section. I cant really think of many things I want either, but I’ll struggle through it…
Burberry Scarves – I got these beautiful $10 ones instead!! Love them.
J. Crew Cafe Capris – I got a pair of the wool check ones, which are great. I just picked up some waverly chino’s in store for $27, too.
Tights – I give up on skirts, tights, leggings and skinny jeans. Maybe later.
January 2012 Goals
Capris – Its a little odd that I would get a capri obsession in the middle of the winter. But I’m just in love with the look of these- dressy yet casual. I need them in every color, pattern, fabric…
Knits – My dryer accidentally ate some of mine. Lovely old dryers.
Chambray – after seeing Jenn rock her chambray shirt, I’ve definitely decided I need one. I tried last year with no success. Time to try again!!
Necklaces – Long, dangly and fun. They really do add so much to outfits. And since I cant wear scarves at work, this is the next best thing. Scarves are kind of like ties, right? Why do men get to wear ties if I cant wear scarves?
I’ve found out why I hate getting dressed in winter.
Jeans – I don’t ever find jeans comfortable. I never have, actually. I remember avoiding them since childhood. I think the fabric is uncomfortable. And, while skinny jeans look great, I really hate having my legs wrapped like sausages. Not comfy. And since my weight goes up and down by about 4-5 lbs, I really have to be having a “skinny day” to fit into them somewhat comfortably.
Leggings – Opposite case here. They’re super comfy, but I feel like my upper thigh muscle/ fat just bulges all over the place. Even when I wear long tops and can’t see it, I know its there…
Boots – I love boots by themselves. I just never wear them because I can’t make a decent outfit with them. Its hopeless.
I may as well scrap my whole wardrobe and start over. Again.
Its just one of those days.
