Link up with Life After I "Dew" if you wanna dish too!
I currently have two of the best nephews anyone could ask for.
(stole this pic from my dad's Facebook!)
Well, come February,
a third will be added to the mix!
My brother and his girlfriend are expecting
a baby boy President's Day weekend.
So of course, those first baby gifts
are being given, well, now.
Both of my sisters have already beaten me to it,
but that's because I've been scheming.
Angela went the classic route
and got some cute outfit that would be needed.
A sweet gesture.
Then there's Jennifer who got them this...
Good move, sis.
Well, knowing I could never necessarily beat that,
I had to at least rival it equally.
Well, I did some Facebook creeping
(but as a journalist, I consider it research)
and find out just how much Brian and Kristen love soccer.
And that they love Manchester City.
And they joked about that being the them of the nursery.
(Except, knowing them, it probably isn't a joke.)
based on this information, I found this...
Ordered and arriving by Thanksgiving.
So when it comes to being the favorite aunt,
and I've got more competition for this one,
I'd say I'm still in the running ;)
So this is a little overdue,
by about 42 days to be exact,
but I still had to share.
During the last weekend in September/first of October,
I was in St. Louis with some fellow designers at Ball State
attending Society for News Design's annual conference.
Yes, I spent ridiculous amounts of money
to listen to lectures about design.
Now that's passion.
(Or maybe just insanity, but I like my description better.)
So I enjoyed every nerdy second of the sessions,
and had a blast at open ceremonies at this place called
The City Museum.
coolest. place. ever.
But I also had a lot of fun exploring the city
(and going up in the arch!)
with some friends.
It was such a nice break from everyday class.
