The Countdown Is On

replies

With only eight weeks to go until the birth of Baby Kerr, I think my maternal instinct is finally starting to kick in. Today I stopped by Petsmart to pick up some food for Bella and I almost left the store with a parakeet and a chinchilla. I wanted to hold and pet every little creature in the store, even the lizards! I chalk it up to the hormones. I did get a good chuckle while watching the lizards; they were all piled on top of one another trying to get a spot underneath the heat lamp. As I was taking a picture of this lizard mountain, they lost their balance and toppled over. Too funny!

Anywho, at this point in my pregnancy, I’m feeling a bit uncomfortable and not so attractive. I’ve already outgrown some of my maternity clothes and my shoes are too tight. My husband compliments me every day but he has to do that because he’s my husband! Of course I’m excited for the arrival of the baby (and very nervous!), but there are also a few other things going on that have been a nice distraction.

The nursery is coming along nicely and should be finished soon. The crown molding and chair rail have been installed and the wallpaper hung. Judson should finish up the last of the painting this week, and the custom curtains should come in any day now. Also, my baby shower is this weekend and I can’t wait to catch up with all my girlfriends who I haven’t seen in forever. The theme is a tea party and my mother and mothers-in-law (I have two of them, lucky me!) are throwing it for me.  My husband is the designated photographer, so next week I promise to share photos from the shower.

Another great distraction is work. I plan on working right up to my due date, so my last day on air is January 8. Every Monday, I look forward to PM Style to get a fashion and beauty fix while hanging out with my girls. If you missed last week’s show, you missed a good one. We surprised Lisa by celebrating her birthday with cake, presents, and a phone call from her best friend, Kym, all the way in South Africa! We got Lisa so good and her reaction was priceless! By the way, model Kate made the most delicious carrot cake for Lisa which she decorated with chandelier crystals. It was so beautiful and so Lisa!

You don’t want to miss PM Style this Monday because we have a special-edition four-hour show planned. You never know what may happen, but I can tell you Nicole Richie will be stopping by along with Lori Goldstein, Mally Roncal, and Isaac Mizrahi!  It's a jam-packed show with lots of brand-new items from the luxurious (cashmere and leather) to the budget-conscious (several items under $30).

So grab your coffee and your energy drinks because it’s going to be a marathon show!! And, as always, I’ll be moderating our live chat on Facebook during the program, so make sure to tune in and log on! And don't forget about my Perfect Pair--a fabulous pair of boots from Easy Street (A318622). There's even a Bonus Pair of trouser socks included with all Easy Street items starting 11/10 through 11/12!

See you Monday!

I enjoyed reading about the nursery and everything. You are gorgeous while pregnant and of course when you are not. Your hair is really sexy long like that. Don't cut it after the baby comes!! I understand where you are right now. This stage can bring about mixed emotions and thoughts about what it all will be like. Don't worry a bit, God has equipped us women to have what we need when it will be needed. Get ready for sleepless nights and days, too, sometimes but it's amazing how the body adjusts and just remember, each day that passes puts you closer to the end of the sleepless nights, etc. I always tell people that I loved my Son (and only child, who is turning 42 in January), sooooo much and every day we were blessed to wake up, I truly counted it all Joy!!!!! God bless you with an easy, short delivery and a healthy baby. God bless you, your husband and the baby with a lifetime of Love, happiness, excellent health, spirituality, and prosperity. I will be looking for photos.

You are an excellent Host and a valuable asset to QVC.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND MERRY CHRISTMAS, TOO.
