A Wonderful Weekend...

I know I should have posted this on Monday but I've been working like a crazy person trying to get things ready for this baby!

I had the most wonderful weekend!

Saturday we cleaned and did laundry and it felt so good to make some progress on my list of housework! J was home so he was able to help me with the girls so I could get SO MUCH done! Thanks baby!

We had planned for his parents to keep the girls overnight Saturday night so we could have an Anniversary Date (a couple days late). The girls were being awful before we left and we called to cancel but my sweet Mother-In-Law wouldn't let us! Thank you!!! And much to our surprise, the girls were angels for them! It makes me so happy when my babies act right for other people.... it really does!

So we dropped the girls off and headed out for our date.... We had planned on eating at our favorite restaurant, Benihana, but when we got there we were told there would be an hour and a half wait if we didn't have reservations. We apparently missed the memo about the rap concert down the street - I guess Benihana is a popular place to dine before a rap concert. Who knew?! So we left and decided on a Plan B.... Outback. We used to eat there all the time but we haven't been in ages. And we both love some Outback bread, so we headed that way. Luckily we found a booth in the bar area so we didn't have to wait and we had a great meal and a great time together!

We came home and put in a movie. Have you seen The Hangover? Oh my gosh.... we laughed through the entire movie. It was so stinkin hilarious! It is definitely not a movie for everyone, but we loved it! I love just spending low-key, quality time with my husband.... and I'm thankful we got to have that this weekend.

We got up Sunday morning and finished our housework and got ready to have a special day. My mom and Nanny came into town Sunday morning so they could go to my baby shower that afternoon. We had a great time together just hanging out. They are so great and I am so blessed by them!

We went to the shower and of course I forgot my camera. But if you want to see a couple of pictures you can go here. It was wonderful and I felt so loved and so blessed by my family and friends. And Little Miss M got some GREAT things! I can't wait to show it all to her :)

Speaking of the Little Miss.... I have our bags packed for the hospital and her room all ready for her. This is the most prepared I have ever been for a baby so I just know she will hang on until the last possible minute. And while I'm beyond excited to meet her and have her here with us, I won't mind her sticking around until she is ready to come. We'll see what the doctor says tomorrow! I need to take some pictures of her cute things.... maybe I can get that done this afternoon and post them tomorrow :)

It was a great weekend and we've had a great start to our week! Hope your week is going wonderfully as well!
