Babyfest '06

Today I accomplished a major feat. Today was the fourth consecutive day that I ran on the treadmill and I wasn't horribly out of breath and I didn't experience any knife-stabbing pains in my chest! Fantastic. Tomorrow will be day five...perhaps I may push myself beyond 2 miles?? Perhaps...

This weekend I am going to my friend, Ana's, baby shower. The last time I saw her, during THESIS, she was just barely starting to show. Now it's only a matter of months before she gives birth. Woah baby. I checked out her registry on babies-r-us and GREAT GOOGLY MOOGLY! That thing was 14 pages long! Goodness Ana! Atleast it made it easier to pick out stuff since there were so many items to choose from. I do believe I picked out the cutest items plus my own little add-on. Look, how adorable!

Baby stuff is too pricey considering its short lifespan. Babies grow so fast. It is ridiculously cute though. I'd go crazy buying itty bitty clothes, soft blankies, and teenie tiny shoes but I'm not having a baby anytime soon. So I must buy these precious items for my dear friends who keep getting knocked up, one by one. One day I'm getting a puppy and setting up a registry for it at Petsmart or something. Hell, my dog would love baby toys and soft blankies....I'm registering my future dog at babies-r-us! Dogs are people too!

attempt #2 this is my second attempt at writing a blog. The first time was a horrible piece of crap I was required to write for a most dreadful class entitled, "Professional" Practice. The name archijeans is a remnant of that class and it seems I can't change. Oh well, here goes attempt #2!

The purpose of this blog is to document my new life, chapter four as I call it, in New York City. Technically, I am starting chapter four in Palisades Park, New Jersey, but this is temporary until Sam and I find a place in the city (or as close as possible). This is my last week of freedom before I start my new job at Perkins Eastman in New York on July 31st.
