A little antiquing...

This morning me, Brek and Brittany went to her doctors appointment. Tuesday's are ultrasound days. Everything is looking good. They didn't measure his size. They'll do that next week. We also went to the hospital to meet the doctor who will take care of baby Mark after he's born. We got to take a tour of the NICU. They were all very sweet and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. The only bad part about the hospital is that parking is just terrible because they are in the middle of building a parking garage...but on the upside to that, the do have FREE valet parking over at the maternity door. COOL!

After the doctor I took them to a cute place called Grandma's kitchen in downtown Mesa for lunch. Then we spent 2 hours walking off lunch in an antique store. Brek got himself a little trunk like box. He LOVES trunks. He wanted a big one, but couldn't afford it. I think I'll get him one for his birthday in October. I got a very cool scale (so love it), a little fan and 2 salt and pepper sets. I collect them, so I've always got my eyes open for different looking ones. The blue set is real heavy and were made in Italy. The anchor/lantern ones were just so different, I had to get them. There were a couple of other antique stores that we didn't get to. Maybe Brittany and I will hit those of Friday. We like to do something fun after doctor's appointments.


Completely off topic...I was sitting here eating a few candies from my candy dispenser. I have skittles, reeces pieces and m&m's all mixed up in there. So it's kind of luck of the draw with what comes out. Here's a tip....I just discovered that an m&m and a reeces piece in your mouth at the same time taste real good! :o)

I love antiquing...I've been doing it since before birth (so I've been told!) And the peanut butter M&M's are my absolute favorite...but it's much more creaitive to make your own with Reces and M&M's...hmmmmm
