When Billy saw me working on this post he said, “WOW, that is a lot of pictures.” I just couldn’t narrow any of them down so let’s just go with it mkay?
Last night my amazing mom and my old boss (I have known her since I was 10 and I was also her personal assistant for a few years, aka hung out with her all day, went to lunch and talked about everything) threw me the most beautiful baby shower.
A pregnant woman’s biggest heavenly spread: baguettes, gourmet cheese, fresh fruit (my mom went crazy on the fruit and now we have a fully stocked fridge of heavenly goodness). PS I did just use the word heavenly twice in the same sentence.
Strawberry shortcake. She asked me what my absolute favorite dessert is right now and I answered strawberry shortcake with ice cream and homemade whipped cream… not high maintenance at all:)
I had the best present helpers (since it is hard to bend over and grab them they brought them to me). I could have been a nice aunt and let them open a few of the presents too but I am like a 6 year old and opening presents is one of my favorite things to do.
The cutest dress from my blogging turned real life friend, Susette.
We will be starting to brain wash our little girl early on to be a runner with this future marathoner shirt!
A homemade quilt from my best friend’s mom and another one also from a good friend. They are breathtaking, I think I might keep them for myself and I have decided I want to learn how to quilt. Billy, buy me a sewing machine now. Thanks.
The family at the party: Mer, Mom, Sissy, Cousin, Aunt, SIL (that drove 2 hours to come) and two of my nieces!
Beautiful friends! Congrats on making the tennis team this year cute girls!
I have officially decided that moving is more tiring than running a marathon. I am experiencing major DOMS just a few hours after but maybe that is because I am typing this while on the floor because of the lack of a couch. I think I might try to convince my mom to let us live with them for the next 1.5 weeks so that we can enjoy their furniture, TV, treadmill and of course their FRIDGE. I bet if I bring her chocolate she may say yes.
Crossing my fingers that I am still feeling good enough for a run this morning, if I can chow down on 37 pieces of bread with cheese and 3 lbs of shortcake I am sure I will feel good enough for a run. PS Baby countdown (because all babies come right on their due date) is 24 DAYS. 576 HOURS. Sorry, I can’t tell you how many minutes because I probably couldn’t even figure that out with a calculator right now I am so tired:)
What is a skill you are really wanting to learn how to do?
-I REALLY want to learn how to quilt.
I just learned last night that Billy’s ALL-TIME absolute favorite fruit is Blackberries? What is yours?
Random question coming from talking about my friends making the tennis team… were you ever cut from making a team in high school?
– I tried out for basketball and was out of there in the first cut.
Any AUGUST BIRTHDAYS?!?! Tell me the day!!!
