Slap-Happy and counting down to D-Day

Yes, I chose a new blog template. And who knows?? I may choose another one next week.

We'll see.

I guess I'm feeling kind of slap-happy in a tired kind of way (which makes sense, I guess) after a two-hour walk with Buttercup this evening. I did the usual route with stops at the bank ATM, the coffee house (for a sugar-free, fat-free iced-latte), and then walked to a little diner to order take-out to bring back home with me.

Buttercup was happy as a clam in the Bob Revolution (it's like the Hummer of strollers, only much, much cheaper), and then when she decided she was no longer happy as a clam in the Bob, she became happy as a clam in the Ergo Baby Carrier, which I am reviewing for a future Five Fab Finds column.

All in all, it was a pretty nice walk. Well, except for the strange looks I got for pushing the stroller with nothing but the diaper bag in it after Buttercup decided she was through with Bob. I almost laughed as people driving by me almost snapped their own heads off of their necks tying to see the baby I was wearing like a back-pack.

Hopefully, with trips to the gym and trying to keep up with my work, I can continue the hard-core walking schedule. Granted, I only have about a week to train for the March for Babies, but I do have about two months until Buttercup's First Birthday, otherwise known as You Can't Use the Baby as an Excuse Anymore.

See my motivation?

An empty stroller..that's funny and would get some strange looks!
