Whew! It's been quite the last couple weeks!

It all started with a wonderful and much needed girls weekend with the best ladies around! We ate, laughed, crafted, laughed, ate, and laughed some more! I won't post too many pictures because what happens on girls weekend stays at girls weekend!
Saying hi to Jessie- which next time it's a MUST that you are there!

A cute wreath for my little miss' room...which is really all I did...there was a bit of crafting with some burlap but after being banned to the deck by a certain someone (Kelly *cough *cough) where I was exposed to the elements I came inside and gave up! Just kidding, I actually started to break out! Ha!

The lovely Andrea's quilt, the light doesn't do it justice, its beautiful! She is so talented!
This is what I spent the last night doing...I figured I will only be able to reach my feet for a little bit longer so I took advantage! You'll notice the antacids which were a must for me with all the AMAZING food around!
Like THIS can't have a girls weekend without PIE!

This was the beginning of what I believe we are now calling "Mug-Rug-A-Palooza 2011" We ended the weekend with about 15 mug rugs, too much cute fabric to pass up!
It was such a fun weekend, I hope that we can start making it a annual or bi-annual tradition! It was so wonderful to be surrounded by some of my best friends all weekend!

With only 3 more months to go (um, yeah I know...only 3 months, may I have a paper bag please?!) before we have a little miss around these parts we bought the first piece for her room...the adorable crib!
After about an hour or so of me cleaning up the room that has become a catch-all instead of a guest room Greg had the crib up and put together in less than 30 minutes! He's awesome, he did have some help from a 4-legged friend...
I still can't believe we are blessed to have a little girl coming into our lives! I'd be lying if I said I wasn't freaking out a little, parenting is a lot of pressure! I'm so beyond lucky to have such wonderful family and girlfriends to look up to for advice and someone to lean on when it gets a little rough, I know that she will be in good hands!

Speaking of family...we had a wonderful time last weekend celebrating Jesus' Resurrection!
Kelly posted a wonderful reminder of what Good Friday was all about and it set my heart straight for the weekend to come. What Christ did willingly on the cross needs to be a constant reminder each and every day, and the fact that He rose again gives us HOPE for the future! Who doesn't need and want hope?!

We got to spend some quality time with Greg's say I love that I am a part of this family would be an understatement! Sadly, when Greg is in charge of the camera you get more pictures of food and people not looking at the camera then nice shots...

This is only a portion of the yummy food  we ate!
Not to sure what we were talking about but I'm sure it was as loud as it looks!
Yup, that is the only picture of anyone looking at the camera!!

Lastly, I'm going to leave you with a video that I have watched probably 15 times this week. If you don't tear up then maybe you aren't as hormonal as I am or you don't have a heart (just kidding). This is one of my favorite hymns sung by my favorite singer! I've heard her sing it live and it is beyond amazing! This hymn is one I sing a lot, it reminds me that no matter the circumstances in my life, good or bad, the Lord is great in all things and I need to praise him for each and everything!

Have a wonderful Friday!


  1. I saw that video posted on FB last week and cried through the whole thing. Seeing the people in the audience singing along and the standing ovation before it was even done was so great. But the best part is being able to tell those words of praise were coming from her heart!
    We need to start planning our next weekend! That was so fun!
    THREE MONTHS?!? Wow! That means there should be a baby shower soon, right? :)

  2. Thanks for the morning cry :) How beautiful!
