sister, target and babies...fun stuff!

Sister came by this morning.
She works most weekdays now so it's always a nice surprise when we get to hang for a bit.
Normally if the sun is shining we'd seize the opportunity to lie by the pool for hours upon end.
However, for the past two days you can feel Fall on it's way in and sun bathing just didn't feel right.

So we did the next best thing.
We went to Target.
You know, to stock up on essentials like butter, ketchup, horseradish. ;)

While there I finally picked up a journal.
I've been meaning to buy one for quite some time.
You see I often daydream about the day Mr. P and I will have babies.
To say that I'm excited to be a mother would be an understatement.
I used to be all awkward around babies, sometimes I'm sure I still am.
BUT I know once we have OUR babies, it will just feel right.
It may sound silly to some but I just really think I was meant to be a mommy.
You know like some people are really talented on the violin or an amazing ballerina?
Well I think I'm going to be an amazing mommy.

Before it's time to birth our youngsters there are lots of exciting things to look forward to.
Like getting married and being newlyweds for a bit. :)

In the meantime I thought it might be nice to begin a journal of sorts.
I'll begin each entry 'dear future baby'.
Hopefully one day our children will want to read this journal.
You know, so they can have a glimpse of the way mom and dad were back before they were 'mom' and 'dad'.

I just finished my first entry and I feel unbelievably happy and at peace.

Happy September friends.


  1. that's so sweet! what a treasure for your future child to have one day. and i always love going to target too...it has this calming power over me.

  2. What a sweet idea, I'm sure they will love reading it.

  3. I've often wondered if I'll let my children see the journals I kept for years in high school. My answer now is no, but it's possible that when they are feeling alone and like nobody understands them, they might want to know that I felt that way too.
    But to write something specifically for your future kids? Way cool. I often wonder what kind of people my parents were before they had us, and this sounds like a great way to communicate that.

  4. You are so stinkin' precious. XOXO
