weekend happenings

This weekend has been fantastic in every way and I have a lot of people to thank for it.

On Friday, I got two packages in the mail - both from blog friends!

One package was a delicious assortment of cookies from Heather - so good Heather, thank you!! I didn't get a picture before we devoured most of the cookies....oops!

The other package was a beautiful quilt for baby boy from Oak, BU, Natalie, Kelly, Amanda & Elizabeth.  The colors match his room perfectly, and I love it so much!  Badger loves it too, I'm not sure she is going to let me give it to her brother.

I sat down with these packages and cried tears of happiness, for real- I'm blaming it on pregnancy hormones.  I feel so blessed to have such great friends.

On Saturday, Steve and I had our first night away from Emily.  I swear she knew I needed some extra cuddles before we left.

We went to Pittsburgh to celebrate our anniversary and to get a little rest after a hectic week.  Steve's parents stayed with Emily (thank you Grandma & Grandpa!!) and from what I could tell after getting home this morning, she didn't miss us at all!  I was nervous to leave her and I knew I would miss her but it was so good to have some one on one time with Steve and to sleep without a baby monitor!

So what did we do?  Well, since I'm pregnant our little babymoon centered mostly

We went to a fancy dinner (delicious) that ended with a free dessert and a free limo ride to Heinz Hall where we saw Lisa Lampanelli.  My stomach was seriously sore from laughing for 2 hours straight, it was a great show!  I highly recommend going to see her, as long as you aren't easily offended- she is known as the "Queen of Mean" after all.

happy anniversary to us!!

that's an almost 33 week belly right there!

We got up this morning at 7:30 (that's sleeping in for us, believe me) and went to eat breakfast at Deluca's, known for having the best breakfast in Pittsburgh.  We got there just in time because when we were leaving there was a line out the door and down the street!  And yes, I sat in the same seat as Tom Cruise.

After breakfast we took our time walking around The Strip District with a hot latte- it was perfect.

We also decorated our Christmas tree this weekend....I seriously can't believe the difference a year makes.  Where did our baby girl go??

  12. Delicious- food, time, weekend, all of it, sounds perfect:] You look great, I can't believe you are so close! I also read but didn't get a chance to comment yet about the surgery... made me sad but glad that is done and y'all can focus on the holidays and time you have remaining as a family of 3! And what a beautiful quilt!

  13. can't believe you're 33 weeks already! i love the quilt (i'm sure the cookies were good too).

  14. Thanks for the b-day wish and yes... I bookmarked the website with the teething necklace and finally got it! We don't use it so much for teething but it is a great "toy/distraction" in stores and when you just need a quick distraction. I love it, comfortable too. Hope things are going good for you!


I would love to hear what you have to say!
