Weekend Recap: My mom, David, and I drove up to Atlanta this past weekend for our first baby shower! The beginning of the trip was a struggle. The night before, I decided to take my workers midnight bowling not realizing it was daylight savings and that we would lose a hour of sleep. So after only a couple of hours of sleep, we were frantically packing for our trip the next morning. After driving for more than an hour, I realized that I forgot my shoes! I mean who forgets their shoes?! This preggo. Once we reached Atlanta, we had to stop by the mall to pick up some heels. Again, not realizing it was Sunday and the mall doesn’t open until 12pm (which is what time my shower starts) we were driving ALL OVER to try to find a place that was open early. Thankfully, there was a TJ Maxx open and I was able to score these cute Michael Kors heels on clearance. That my friend is what I call “winning”.
Once we got to the shower, all was well. I was no longer stressed. I was there with my best friends. It was so fun and exciting because that means it’s getting that much closer to when I can finally meet our little panda. My friends from college threw us this beautiful shower and it was held at the coolest little venue called Southbound. For those who know me well, knows how much I’m totally OBSESSED with exposed brick and wood work. Talk about swoon-worthy. Not to mention the food was uhh-mazing. We just had the best time catching up, laughing, playing games and being completely spoiled with all kinds of fun things for baby Greyson. With all the panda decorations and gifts, this kid is literally going to think he is a real life panda! The shower showed me just how much this sweet little boy is already SO loved! We are lucky he has such awesome aunties in his life 🙂

House Update: Things are actually moving along pretty well. The exterior of the house is done (except for the stone work), all the rooms are painted, cabinets are installed and the granite is in– it really looks like things are finally coming together! We also started packing up our current house. This is the not so fun part. Who knew how much stuff we can accumulate in less than a year. However, my last day working at my restaurant, Splendid Shabu, will be the first of April so I will probably be in full nesting mode by then and we enjoy the packing/organizing…. maybe. We are still hoping to move our closing date a couple days sooner so that when David’s parents come in town they can help us move. Lord knows I will be a big, waddling pregnant lady by then. Fingers crossed! (Will try to go by the new house and take some pictures later this week!)
How I’m Feeling: 2 words. Braxton. Hicks. And boy are they strong at times. Other than that, same old same old. 9 more weeks to go!
