Weekend Wrap Up

baby shower


L to R top row: "cute as a button theme" banner to show off the theme with cupcakes and a diaper cake / close up of the delicious blue velvet  cupcakes / cute clothes for the little guy hung up and paper in the shape of onesies for guests to write and advice for me on and pin up

middle row: what my niece wrote on one of the cards they had at the shower for giving me advice / my nephew's message to me in the card that went with the present he and his mom gave me...this may have made me cry :)

L to R bottom row: with my momma and brother's girlfriend / with my niece who discovered her head is right at baby belly height and that he makes a great pillow when standing next to me / mad that I didn't snap a pictures before my other SIL had to leave for work, but with my SIL, niece, and MIL


So how's this for ridiculousness - this isn't my wrap up for this weekend we're just now finishing up...it's from last weekend. Whoops. Last weekend we headed up north for our baby shower and used it as a great opportunity to be home for the last time before having the baby (my husband and I aren't from the same town, but grew up in the same area). The baby shower theme was "cute as a button" and it felt like my sister-in-laws, mother-in-law, and mom put effort into every last detail. We headed back to Columbus that night with full hearts and a full car!

I have some vacation days that have to be used before the end of October or I lose them, so thankfully I had the foresight to take Monday off to rest a little bit. Good thing too, because Sunday mid-morning through about midnight that night with the exception of the time it took me to go to Walmart and drop my husband off at the airport for a work trip, I did nothing but write notes, put things in their place, and washed and folded all of his cute little clothes and blankets. It was almost an obsession, so even when I did take it easy on Monday my mind could only focus on my to-do list, leaving me with no focus for writing blog posts and then no energy for it the rest of the week! 

So hopefully I learned my lesson! It's time to slow down, try my best to enjoy these last weeks of pregnancy (very hard to do!) and rest up when I need to. Which is exactly what I did all afternoon after my husband convinced me that the living room needed re-arranged and re-organized. :)

  2. Aww, looks like such a cute baby shower! I love the theme! And yes, take as much time to slow down and relax as you can! It can be very hard, you are probably getting to that nesting mode a little bit, but it's good to rest when you can!

  3. I love the theme for your baby shower!! Super cute :) Washing and folding baby clothes is so fun - I remember doing that when my little cousins were born (13 years ago...but still...). How much longer do you have until he's here? About 4 weeks??
