Remember this little giveaway over at Pussycat Vintage I mentioned last week? I won!!! Well, I won 2nd place...but I won!! I never win anything! I'm thinking we should be trying the lottery this week. So far I know that I have this lil lovely coming from Benandi. How stinkin cute is that!?
I'm still not sure what else I have coming as I think I'm getting 2 or 3 more things from the giveaway...I think... haha.
Like I said, our car died on us this weekend. Actually we think it just needs a starter. Unfortunately our car was made within a 3 year span that Nissan decided to practically tuck the starter away, never to be seen again. So our estimate for repair was about $450 with most of that being labor costs just to get to the starter. Boo. Hiss. I don't even think this car is worth that in the first place. Well, it just so happens, one of our close friends is getting rid of one of these lil gems:
It's a 1995 Saab 900s! Cute huh? Much cuter than our 1988 Tony Stanza (Nissan) that we have sitting in our driveway. We are paying just a little bit more than the repairs would cost on the old car and it's 7 years newer and way cuter! And it has heat and air! B is stoked on that! So yeah we are having to spend money and we don't have much to spare since I'm doing the stay at home thing, but I think it came at a good time when our friend was trying to sell her car for cheeeaaaap. So we are going to have a new (to us) car tomorrow! YAY!
The dude gets out of school in 2 weeks and I think we will be spending some time at my folk's house who live close to the beach. Double YAY! B works 6-7 days a week, but I'm hoping he'll get to get away here and there over the next few months. I hate that he has to work so much, but I really appreciate it and LOVE that I get to stay home with our sweet girl and boy this summer.
Little Miss Magnolia has been super fussy the past few days. She's not wanting to nurse and just arches her back and screams. She's never had a bottle so I don't think it has anything to do with that type of thing. She has also started scratching her head and face and pulling her ear and hair on her left side, so I'm worried she has an ear infection. Hopefully I can get the car stuff squared away tomorrow and get her over to the pediatrician to see what's going on. I'm also trying to break her of the habit of sleeping in this thing.
It's the Fisher Price Rock n Play Sleeper, which has been awesome. She usually sleeps like a champ in it, but we'd like to get her back in the habit of sleeping flat on her back. So needless to say, we will probably have a very restless night tonight and the next...and the next.
Tomorrow: New car and plastic pool. I'm on it!
