Congrats to us!!

Hi girls,
WE DID IT!! SI SE PUEDE! I suspect my in-utero munchkin was the campaign's good luck charm, but I have no way of proving this. I'll just have to know it in my heart, the way I know that America and the world will NEVER be the same! Isn't it exciting that this happened in our lifetime? WOO-HOO! I'm just mad that I couldn't find a New York Times ANYWHERE yesterday, dammit. My poor child's baby book will suffer for this.

It's certainly a magical time, as evidenced not only by the election results, but also by the invitation I received to appear on The Today Show yesterday. So random, but totally fun and hilarious. Me, Adam, and le bump were part of a Kathie Lee & Hoda-hosted panel called "Modern Marriage." Check my wild gesticulating and Adam's frozen-in-mortal-terror expression here.

And in more let's-humiliate-Sunshine news, the "I Married a Metrosexual" article I wrote for The Nest magazine was just picked up by! Let me know what you think, and if you have any beloved Metros in your life.

Stay tuned for Monday's post...the last one before my C-section on Wednesday, November 12th!! I'll be giving you a very premature holiday gift guide, as I wanted to make sure your shopping needs were taken care of before I went under le knife. I'll be going on a little maternity break, but I'll be back on March 1st!! Can't wait to give you all the deets on my Obama Baby!!

Tia, good luck on the delivery! i had a c-section and it was quicker than i thought it would be.:)

I love how Sunshine had nothing to say and let you do most of the talking. A quiet man is a price!

Aww Tia! Love the interview and the article. I am still trying to metrosexualize my pumpkin. We are making headway though... Good Luck on your C-section! I pray blessings and good health for you all.

Wow! The time went by so fast! Best wishes for an safe & happy delivery...

Thanks for the Kiehls review I have my SO picking up the Restorative lotion on his trip to DC. I gave him my list and postcards so he can turn them in for my deluxe samples. Unfortunately there aren't any flagships/counters in Upstate NY...booo!

Tia congrats on the baby. I'm sure this beautiful baby girl will be just as beautiful as her lovely parents.

My beau started out not wanting to try any skincare products, now he can't live without his beloved Lab Series.

Much blessings to you and your family on next Wednesday. I'm doubly excited because that is one of my nieces birthday as well.

November is really turning out to be the best ever, especially for you! You're going to have the cutest little girl. We're gonna miss you and your great advice Tia but I'm looking forward to Monday's post and it's really nice of you to even think of doing that for us before your delivery. Thanks : )

Like you Tia, I never thought I'd witness this kind of history in my lifetime... So, like millions of others, the feeling is unexplainable. Actually, one of my cousins described it as that "warm and fuzzy feeling."

I've been reading your blog for the last few years and I've read both of your books (total guilty pleasures, cuz I'm over 35). I was so happy to hear about your pregnancy and now you'll be giving birth soon. Congrats to you and Adam and I hope you have a safe and beautiful delivery. I can't wait to find out what you name your new bundle of joy. God bless to all of you!

Aww good luck and I hope all goes well Tia. I'm so happy for you. By the way I'm a certified lurker, so you probably have no idea who I am, but I love your words and that's all that should matter right :-). May God Bless you and your family on your special day!

The segment on the Today Show was very interesting. I married my high school sweetheart while we were still in college. We were only 21. I think it has it's ups and downs. Loved your article too. Is that you and Adam in the picture?? Congratulations on your baby.

The MSN article was great. I thought I had it bad because my husband has swiped a deep conditioner or nice smelling moisturizer or so in the past thirteen years, hee hee hee.

For those of you out there who don't already know, Cave is porting their gothic arcade shooter DeathSmiles to the Xbox 360 in Japan. The game represents only the second horizontal shooter from Cave and is unlike anything else they've developed before. wow goldThe spooky theme of the game, not to mention the manic game play, gives the game a very unique look and feel to it. Considering the arcade PCB still retails for in excess of $2500, it's a safe bet that shooter fans are quite happy that Cave is bringing the game over to the Xbox 360 console. wow goldThe game is set for release in Japan sometime during Spring 2009. It's nice to see Cave still taking the time and spending the money to bring their amazing shooters to the home consoles. Let's hope this streak continues. I'll have impressions of the game as soon as it's released in Japan

I still remember the hell I caught when I posted a blog entry stating that Star Ocean: First Departure was coming to the US. I can't count the number of emails I got telling me that there was no way this game would be coming to the US since the Super Famicom original never made it stateside. world of warcraft goldbuy wow goldcheap wow goldwow power levelingwow powerlevelingeverquest 2 goldeq2 platfinal fantasy 11 cheap gilbuy ffxi gilffxi gilfinal fantasy xi gilmaple story mesosmaplestory mesosmaplestory mesolotro goldlotr goldlord of the ring goldWell now that the game has been released here in the US, I'd like to thank all of those who tried to save me from utter embarrassment. What would I do without you guys? Okay now that I got that out of my system, it's time to talk about the actual game. runescape goldrunescape moneysilkroad goldbuy silkroad golddofus kamaskamas dofuswarhammer goldbuy warhammer goldflyff penyabuy flyff goldflyff moneyeve iskeve online iskarchlord goldbuy archlord goldstar wars galaxiesswg creditsI recently played all the way through the original Super Famicom version of Star Ocean so I'd be good and ready to play this updated version. The first thing that blew me away was the 3-D presentation of the game. It took a little getting used to, but so far it's proving to be quite the impressive visual tour de force. The music in the game isn't too shabby either and really does a great job of carrying the original mood of the music with a much more orchestrated and full-sounding presentation.

I'll post a full review of the game when I've had a chance to finish it off.
