I'm still here...

My brain is refusing to let me think about my little blog or about much these days except for one very life-changing event which happens to be the one where G and I are expecting our first baby. I know, Whoa. It seems a bit surreal yet as I'm only 10 1/2 weeks along but after 7 1/2 years of marriage and 32 1/2 years of life in general (plus G's 38 years), we think we're as ready as we'll ever be. And we're so very excited! And nervous. And at times overwhelmed. But in general, completely happy!

So on that note I wanted to share one thing that has been a small joy to me through this weird time of not wanting (but ironically being allowed by my doctor) my usual morning coffee.



Prince Vladimir Kusmi Tea is so so good and smells so dark and orangey and wonderful. I bought some in a beautiful tin somewhere in NYC which of course I don't remember now (do you, P?) but nevertheless you can order some here.
I want to sit in this kitchen with people I really like and drink tea and eat pumkin pie.

Hey there pregnant buddy!!! I, too, am 32 1/2, have been with my honey forever (13 years), and am expecting my first. But I'm a little behind you -- only 6 1/2 weeks, so the total obsession hasn't set in. YET.

And it's so early that I'm also just nervous. About everything. Like, will not eating sushi and blue cheese turn me into a cranky b*tch that my husband wants to divorce?

Anyway, congratulations!!!

I think it might have been Zabar's now that you mention it...thanks, P! And yes, we'll think about Prince Vlad for a boy's name. That or Stephen Patrick. ;)

I'm so excited for you, Erin! And how cool that we're so close in weeks. We'll have to discuss from time to time...
I have to say this whole food thing is a real pain in the arse. The whole can and can't have and want and don't want. All I know is that your hunny can't divorce his baby mama so you're good. ;)
