Paypal loves me

Pregnancy has turned me into a shopaholic. Wait, no strike that. I already had a problem. At least I'm a bargain hunter though! Yesterday I was inspired to buy some tan-n-a-can, a brand I hadn't heard of but apparently the stars rave about. I love celebrity endorsements. It doesn't take much to inspire me. Nice weather, white skin, a friend talking about fake tanning in prep for her florida keys trip (me=totally jealous), our upcoming trip to Duck, NC and of course said celeb endorsements... all that combined lead me to the internet, which lead me to Xen-Tan (which I got for "cheap" through hsn.com). We'll see how that works out.

This morning I finally got Chris' undivided attention to make a decision on baby bedding. Such things are important you know. How am I to choose a nursery color if I don't know what the bedding is going to look like. So I provided him with my top 10 choices and we quickly narrowed it down to two. One cost $179 for the crib bedding set, the other cost a mere $39 at Walmart. Both were equally cute. We went for the Walmart deal. I pretty much despise Walmart, I'm much more a Target girl myself...but in this case I made an exception. Birds, trees, fruit, cute colors, mod - totally bought. We should get it next week. Here's hoping it's as cute in person. (PS... We're having a BOY!!!)

Last and not least, to go with my fake tan I need a preg swimsuit. Duh. Until you actually search for a maternity swimsuit, you don't realize how hard it is for a pregger to look somewhat cute on the beach. Most suits are dull and highly unflattering OR they're kinda cute but incredibly pricey. After almost dropping $30 on an Old Navy tankini, I went to the ever-so-promising Ebay. I ended up with a cute Shoshanna tankini, much cuter than the old navy choices this year, and for about the same amount of money. Ok, a slight bit more but I'm hoping it's worth it.

So there ya go. I'm starting to feel like I'm a character out of Shopaholic and Baby, but whatev. If I can't drink cosmos and eat goat cheese at least I have online shopping.

A boy, how cool! I wonder if I ever had a kid if I'd want to know in advance? Nice to know, but kind of fun to not. Not that I ever have to worry about this issue, mind you!

Just a quick follow-up to this post, Xen-Tan rocks. Love it. Quick color and it smells yummy going on. My hands did look brownish, even after washing - but an hour later they looked normal. go figure.
