My Lucky Day

Today was one of those days when the design/thrifty/frugal stars aligned for me,I just happened to stop by one of my "go-to" second hand stores.You may remember reading about one of my other finds here. So back to the goods, lookey at what I found...

Sorry this photo is a little blurry, what you get for holding a baby and trying to take an iPhone photo inconspicuously

The first is a lovely microfiber couch I scored for $100, seriously people it is brand spankin' new it might as well of been wrapped in plastic. They were asking $150 for it but thanks to the encouragement of my hubby {the seasoned pro at negotiating} I offered 100 bucks and they took it. :)

just envision me doing any variation of one of these dances {on the inside of course} a.k.a. my happy dance. 
On to score #2 a very cute shabby chic table that was perhaps used as part of a vanity set, but will now become a console table for our living room. EEK! I'm so excited, yes it is missing a drawer (bummer) but I'll figure something out I'm sure. Best of all, it was $5! Yes no typo there, $5. See what I mean about the design/thrifty/frugal stars aligning for me today. Aaamozing! *whit that last line was for you, hope you can guess the show ;)

WTF? why the funk?

Well if you've been around me lately and thought, "Gee, Amber just doesn't seem herself". There is a very good explanation for that. This may enlighten you on the lack of blogging, cleaning, hygiene, being sociable, pretty much anything that involves me leaving the house.  

 if you've been blessed to have one of these growing inside your belly, then you know the toll it takes, especially in the very beginning. Extreme exhaustion,sciatic flare-ups {in my case}, nausea, all around feeling like butt everyday.

 Pretty much you don't want to get off the couch let alone do every day things. Thankfully me and my peanut are slowly getting better I can feel the fog of the first trimester lifting, wouldn't you know it, right around 13 weeks. I have already had my first appointment and the doctor said it is a very healthy looking fetus and that my due date is October 11th. I'm very excited and scared to have another little one in the house so soon. But it's all in God's plan, and I feel very blessed to be a vessel to one of his heavenly creation's. E has brought me an insurmountable amount of joy, and taught me the blessings of motherhood. I can't wait to open my heart even more and let the love of this little one wash over me too.
