Insta-Friday. Week before baby edition.

We had a happy, full week as a family of five, busily preparing to add another tiny human to the chaos.
Here is a peek into our days through Instagram.

 The handsome mister had a birthday, complete with a Star Wars pinata, boat ride, emergency cupcakes for our brave trip through Carmageddeon (biggest media fueled sham since Y2K, we have never driven to LA faster) and topped off with an old school arcade cabinet for the iPad.  It was a good one if I might say so myself.

Girl week wouldn't be complete without a cousins trip to the American Girl store for lunch and doll hair dos.  At the doll hair salon.  Yes.  There is such a thing and it is spectacular.  Girly fabulous.  

 Just a bit of the carnage that was Bakingpalooza 2011 with Drew.  So fun.  But soooooo messy.  Times like these I especially miss my very-efficient-at-floor-cleaning dog.  Other times too, I'm not heartless, but especially these times.

Rainbow nails... all of the kool kids are doing it and now I know why.  Seriously cute, and I am not a nail polish girl.  These little rainbow hands have changed all of that.
Best accompanied by a few games of Pretty Pretty Princess.

My kitchen foibles continue.  Somehow I had extra boil-y water that freakishly cracked my mason jar and filled the barely recovered kitchen with tea.  Rad.

These three things deserve sooooo much credit.  I dosed our little family up like crazy and we washed hands like loco OCD people.  All in an attempt to fight the tiny ugly germs, so operation c-section could go as scheduled.  It worked brilliantly.  Somehow the rest of us escaped the summer plague.

Never ever, ever let a scrap go to waste.
Ever.  
Because you never know when you need to make Big, Bigger and Biggest sister shirts.

Which the girls are wearing TODAY!!!!

To meet their BROTHER!!!!

Yay yay yay yay!!!!

Excitedly freaking out.

Can't wait to see him.
Can you?
