“Mrow!”

tabs-diva-cat-diamonds“Yes, buddy. I’ll make your food.”

“Mrrrrrrrrow!!”

“OK, buddy. Hang in there. Mommy just needs to finish feeding Connor.”

“MEEEEEOWWW!!!”

“Buddy. Please, you have to be patient. Connor needs food too.”

Suddenly Tabs takes off like a rocket down the hall and straight down the stairs at top speed, his tabby claws digging noisily into the carpet. No longer able to see him, I can still hear him tearing sh*t up as he runs circuits around the living room, leaping off of the furniture in a hunger-fueled rage.

“Tabs, what are you doing!?” I shout. “Why are you being so crazy right now?”

*Sigh!* This is how my mornings are right now, LOL! Tabs is very patient around Connor as long as it doesn’t interfere with his schedule for lurvies or gravy. ๐Ÿ™‚

Rise and shine, morning glory. Happy Caturday. How was your night?

My nights sort of blur into my days right now. That’s the phase we’re in over here. Connor Claire is now just about two weeks old, and she’s doing her baby thing. Every once in a while she’ll sleep a block of four hours at a time, but it’s usually between two and three hours at a time, so either El Hub or I will get up to feed her, burp her, probably also change her, and then try to get her to go back to sleep, which is sometimes easier said than done.

It’s an adventure, LOL!

Top o’ the mornin’ to ya! Rise and shine, pal o’ mine. Happy Caturday!

Question for you: when will it stop raining? That’s what I’d like to know. We’ve gotten so much rain this week that the neighborhood is greener than I’ve seen it in years. There’s stuff blooming out there that doesn’t usually bloom here, like, get this: about a month ago I was about to throw out a few potatoes that had started to sprout in their bag in the kitchen, but El Hub said, “No! I want to plant them outside…”

And, you know, that was weird, but boys will be boys, so I said “Um…OK?”

Anyway, he took them outside and buried them somewhere…

I come to find out yesterday that they’re growing huge! So now we have potatoes growing in our front yard. If this had been another year, like last year, I don’t think that would have happened, because I can’t remember it raining once all through last February or March.

In other news, Happy St. Patrick’s Day week! ๐Ÿ™‚ Will you be having green beer? If you are, please have a sip for Connor Claire, who happens to be one eighth Irish.

Sephora giveaway!

This place needs a Sephora. That would totally take the Kaiser SF hospital to the next level. Picture it: Sephoras inside the maternity ward — mini Sephoras, like the small ones inside JCPenney stores, but, like, a Sephora in the maternity ward at the hospital.

I think I’m on to something. ๐Ÿ™‚

Good morning, beautiful! I just woke up from a rollicking four hours of sleep, which sounds lame, but in this brave new world of being Connor’s mom, four hours is awesome.

I should be going home today, and I’m really excited about it. Introducing Connor and Tabs will be like a meeting of world superpowers. I just hope the two of them can reach a dรฉtente.

It’s Saturday, right? I’m pretty sure it’s Saturday… I’m starting to lose track of the days, but assuming it’s Saturday, let’s get on with the giveaway. I hope your weekend is filled with delicious brunch goodies, lots of hugs, a cat or two and good coffee. Talk to you soon, my friend.

Rise and shine, pal ‘o mine! I’m actually writing this on Friday afternoon because I have no idea if I’m going to be here, or at the hospital tomorrow morning. I had another appointment with my doctor today (Friday), and she said that I’m ready to pop! Of course, she’s been saying that for the past two weeks, so who knows? I am convinced that I will be pregnant until forever.

I hope you have a wonderful, fun-filled weekend, and I will hopefully talk to you on the flip side soon.

“I’m never gonna dance again; pregnant feet have got no rhythm. Though it’s easy to pretend, I know you’re not a fool…”

Dude, those easily could have been the lyrics to that song, because I kid you not, I’m a total klutz right now. I waddle like an emperor penguin, and if I stub my toes one more time… I swear…

Haha! I made myself laugh! It’s true, though.

Rise and shine, morning glory! Happy caturday. ๐Ÿ™‚ What are you up to? I slept in a little, which my body seemed to really like. This weekend, it’s just more of the same for me — the baby waiting game. She could show up any day now, so I don’t think I’ll be going on any very long, solitary hikes. Probably not a good idea to get too far off the beaten path right now, ya know? I don’t want to deliver Baby Girl in a car or the woods.

No. That would not be ideal.

Here at Casa de MBB, while I’m off attending to Baby Girl’s needs, the interns will take over! Yes, six intrepid blogging beauties will be posting product reviews, makeup tips and other interesting things, and I’ll still be checking in from time to time, too. I’ve been working closely with the interns behind the scenes for the past few weeks, and I’m very impressed and excited. We’re all in for a treat.

Have a great weekend, my friend, and I’ll talk to you soon. Good luck in the giveaway.
