A relaxing sorta day....

I've had a very relaxing day so far.

I got up early, because I had to meet a student at the university (about this plagiarism thing that's going on)...okay, so that part wasn't exactly relaxing, lol!

I then went to the mall, because I'm in desperate need of a new pair of maternity jeans. My old ones are TIGHT-o-rama. Gads, my belly is getting big. Found some pyjamas, which will come in handy. And a few t-shirts. But my favourite buy, was a white, fluffy, snowsuit for the baby. It has little "ears" on the hood, and a "tail" on the bum. TOO CUTE! Oh goodness, it's already begun. I'm shamelessly dressing up my baby (even before he/she is born) in cute, animal outfits for my own pleasure. Oh well.

After that, I went to the Aveda salon to treat myself to a massage. It was divine. The massage therapist used patchouli-cinnamon oil (yum!), and I fell fast asleep during the treatment. It was a wonderful break in my day.

Now, I'm prepping for my class (okay, also not relaxing) - and waiting for my groceries to be delivered. Yes, we're trying out a new grocery delivery service....not because we're lazy, but sometimes it's nice to have a little convenience. Especially when this baby arrives, we'll need all the help we can get!

Lots of walking around today, so no "formal" exercise. Eating has been mostly okay - still too many sugar cravings for my liking.

I must get back to prepping, even though blogging is sooooo much more fun!

I can't wait to see the outfit! I dressed my baby as a panda bear! That was one of my favorite outfits for him :-)

So, yeah, massages and grocery TOTALLY deserve them!

The outfit sounds adorable. I've done the grocery delivery thing before, I tried it out in -30 and it worked well.

I just know if I ever have a baby I'm going to be an absolute nightmare when it comes to cute clothes. I can't walk through a baby department in any store without 'oooo'ing and 'ahhhh'ing even now. I will end up spending my life savings on cuteness!

Holy cow..7 weeks to go!!!! Post a picture of your belly!! I wanna see!! Pregnant bellies are soo cute!!

The couple yoga sounds awesome. I hope my husband and I do that when it's our turn.

are maternity jeans comfortable? i feel like jeans would be the last thing i'd want to wear when pregnant.

I have a love affair with Aveda. I'm actually going to get this pregnant woman foot massage pedicure thing in two weeks (my first week off from work) - I've heard about pedicures starting labour... wouldn't that be grand?

And yes, I ditto - you DESERVE the delivery and massage!

Totegirl - panda bear outfit! cute - you're giving me ideas.

Cowgirl - do you have 'grocery gateway' in Calgary? That's the main service in Toronto. It was excellent!

Bella - The "cute" factor never wears off, I think...this is only the beginning!

Sarah - okay - belly shot to be posted! They look cuter than they feel, those bellies.;-)

Pinknest - maternity jeans (and other pants) have a big elastic across the top - no button or zipper. So it "hugs" the belly. Very comfy! Unless there's no more room (like in my case). At first, they felt like pyjamas. Now, I kinda miss "normal" jeans.

Christy - ooooh - ask for a mix of scented oil at Aveda! They also have a special "pregnancy" massage, where you sit on floating warm water cushions...apparently, it's incredible. That's what I'm getting next!
