There is simply nothing better than a 4 day workweek...well, other than a 3 day workweek..or no workweek at all! Enough of my bad humor...despite the down turn in the weather today (85 yesterday to 60 today:( - boo!), it's my Friday and I couldn't be happier. Good Friday is observed by the company I work for and the hubs is taking a vacation day so we can spend the day as a family tomorrow. I have already mapped out some plans for the day and hopefully if the weather cooperates we'll have the perfect balance of spending some quality time together as a family and also take care of some upkeep items around the house. I've already got an appointment scheduled to get some studio Easter pictures done of Addie at the Picture People (say what you will about cheesy mall pics but we have had some great success taking Addie there) and then I'm hoping to head to my fave consignment shop at the beach, Sprout (isn't that just the cutest name?), to buy some 6-9 month sleepers for Addie. If all goes well, I'd really like to get the flower beds mulched in the afternoon - that kind of makes me tired just thinking about all that. When I sent my hubs my ideas he responded with "yeah, come to think of it, I think they're gonna need me here on Friday." HA! Not happening! And because I didn't post a whole slew of updated pics of the girl yesterday...here are some I took this past weekend ( I know, I know, I just can't get enough of the picture taking):

Anyhow, I'm hoping to spend some time tonight putting together a post for Friday about breastfeeding thats honest and completely open about my experience (the good, the bad, and the oh my nipples are cracked ugly!). I'm hoping it will be good info for anyone thats pregnant and trying to figure out the pros and cons of BF and make for good laughs for those of you that have been through it.
