Well, this weekend was an exciting one! Let’s jump right into it with my shower on Saturday….
My Mom threw my second shower and it couldn’t have been more fun! Let’s just say that after the crappy week I had, this was the perfect way to end the week! I’ll be sure to include all the details on what’s been going on in my bump update next week!
We had the perfect group of all of my neighbors and some family members.
See those adorable little booties…my mom made them!! I’m so excited because will the extra, we are going to stuff them with some pink & white M&M’s for the hospital to hand out to the nurses. Such a great idea (thanks, Mom!).
Brutus had to get in on the action! He felt quite honored considering he was the only guy allowed to be there ;)
All the ladies!
Not only was the afternoon a lot of fun but most exciting, we received our car seat as a gift!! YAY, now we can officially take our baby girl home from the hospital when she makes her debut.
Saturday evening, Derek and I headed off to my work event.
Some how I lost my Nikon wireless remote (seriously, I never lose anything!) and I was trying to get a full body picture….but, this is what I ended up with. One, I wanted to show off the bump! And two, Saturday was the first time I’ve worn heels since I’ve been pregnant. At first when I stepped into the heels, I was like, ow these hurt. But then after walking around in them, I couldn’t stop thinking about how much I’ve missed walking in heels!! Made me feel a lot more like myself.
Anyway, we attended the Gourmet Sensation, a benefit for Hospice of Cincinnati, downtown. I’ve always wanted to go to this event and was sooooo incredibly excited to attend!
Basically, you have your wine glass (which was sadly not utilized by me that night) and your plate, and you walk around to all these different stations and try gourmet food. They bring in chefs from all around the country. Each dish was paired with both a wine and beer. Although I didn’t get to try the pairings and some of the food (i.e. the tuna tartare and caviar), all of the dishes were very good and a lot of fun to try. I tried rabbit for the first time and actually found a lamb dish I actually liked. We kinda felt like we were at an event you would see on Top Chef. PS- can’t wait for that new season to start!!
Well hope you had a great weekend. Our week is super busy with our first class, doctor appointment, and maternity pictures. Looking forward to all of it!
