Seven Year Itch?

We seem to have beat it!  Happy Anniversary to Us!!!!  7 years ago at 7pm I became Mrs. Randazzo!  It really does not feel like it's been 7 years since we said "I Do" and it really doesn't feel like we've been together for 10 years.  Time is funny that way!  We've definitely had our ups and downs but so thankful that we've persevered and are where we are today.

Weren't we cute???  :)

We don't normally exchange gifts for Anniversaries but this year the Italian surprised me.  He gave me a beautiful ruby & diamond pendant as an anniversary/(advance) push present.  Since it's officially July 1st and the little princess hasn't arrived yet that means that her birthstone will definitely be a RUBY.  So thoughtful, and I mean no disrespect but definitely unexpected coming from The Italian. 

I LOVE IT!!!!!   

Speaking of her highness, the little princess has not made any further progress.  At my doctor's appointment Thursday we were still dilated 1 cm and 50% effaced.  Doc says that that really doesn't mean anything - he's had patients not dilate at all and deliver that night and some who walk around dilated 3cm for 3 or 4 weeks!  Her majesty has however discovered a new bladder.  The Italian and I were trying to watch a movie last night and I literally had to have him pause it 3 times in 10 minutes...I am NOT exaggerating either.  (wish I was).  

I did get some packing done yesterday...

Nicolette's bag is all packed (Boppy, Going Home Dress - which was actually one of my dresses when I was a baby, Extra Onesie for Going Home, Hair Bows, Blankie, Baby Legs, Socks & Mittens). 
Sweet Nicolette's Bag of Goodies for the Hospital 
I LOVE this bag from Auntie Laura - it's the only one big enough to fit the Boppy to take to the hospital!  

I packed a basket full of "snacks" to give to the sweet Labor & Delivery Nurses at the hospital.  It's my "please-be-super-nice-to-me-even-though-I might-yell-at-you-peace-offering gift". 

I also vacuumed the whole house (again), cleaned the bathrooms (again), started working on Nicolette's baby book, learned how to make a Sock Bun (thinking this might be the best way to keep my hair out of my face during delivery), packed up (and hid) snacks for Daddy...but I cannot seem to make myself make any significant progress on MY hospital bag...
Mommy's Hospital "Pile"
At least I have some stuff together - pjs, slippers, chapstick, hair ties, headband, flip flops, leggings, t-shirt, hospital paperwork, starting to get charging cords together for camera, iPad, computer, going home dress, etc... I don't know why I'm procrastinating so much with this!  Maybe today will be the day that I get fully motivated...
