Girls Weekend

I have been trying to write a post about the amazing girls weekend that I had last week. THE PICTURES WON'T POST!!!!! It is so annoying! ( i think i got a few to work)
We had a wonderful time. Here are a few highlights.
Natalie flew in tuesday morning a little bit late but it worked out for the better. We came home to my house and played baby clothes. I had a shower on saturday and I wanted to share all the new goodies. Plus the new bedding for the babies crib arrived in the mail the day before so there was alot to play show and tell. Rich and Crewe took us into the city later in the afternoon, where we stayed at a great hotel right, located on Union Square. We started out the "offical" part of the trip with SHOPPING!! We spent an hour in the Macy's shoe department. You can't go wrong with shoe shopping. Topped off the evening with dinner at Cheesecake Factory.
Wednesday morning started out at the Nail Salon. We all got Chocolate pedicures and manicures. HEAVEN!!! It was so perfect. At 8 months pregnant nothing feels as good as having someone rub my legs, my feet and make my feet pretty. Eating lunch at Housten's, YUM, followed by more shopping. That evening we went to the play, "Beach Blanket Babylon." Very good.

Thursday morning was a short day of shopping, eating and taking Nat to the airport. It was such a wonderful fun weekend. Thanks Mom! We missed our other sister-in-law, Natali, who decided not to come this year. We spoke of her throughout the weekend and finally asked a random woman to step in her spot. Not really, but we have recieved applications from others who want to join the family.
It was a great weekend. A great way to finish up the last part of this long hard pregnancy. Thanks mom and Nat for coming and playing with me.

I have not forgot to post. I am just busy. My parents have been in town. It was so much fun to have them both here. My dad left on sunday and the Jody is still here. We are picking Natalie up to today for a little girls weekend. So more fun to come. I also had a wonderful baby shower on Saturday and another shower the next friday. Yeah.

The couch

When we got married (almost 7 years ago) the first thing we bought (actually before we were married) was our beloved green couch. It was choosen with much care and MUCH conversation. Rich wasn't sure he wanted color in our house and I couldn't imgane living without it. It has been a good couch to us. We have sat on everyday of married life. When Crewe was a newborn I slept many nights on the couch holding the tiny bundle. My mom sleeps on the couch as a makeshift bed when she visits. It has been good to us. About 4 months ago the couch DIED!!!! It went from looking a "little worn" to looking "a little white trash".

The couch frame broke and then the fabric tore. It was all very sad.Then we bought a new couch a little over 6 weeks ago. It finally came today. (and now for some reason I can't attach the new pics...will work on later). So my pregnancy hormones are kicking in and I am finding myself very happy for the new couch. AND very sad to say goodbye to the green couch. I won't let Rich move the green couch out tonight. Not yet, not time for goodbye.

so tired

Crewe skipped his nap and was moving along with his night. Then he crawled up onto Rich's lap. 30 SECONDS LATER...... a 5pm nap was taking place.

Fires out

A couple of months ago I slept on my shoulder in a crazy way. My shoulder blades were killing me!!! So finally I cornered my husband and said, "Will you please rub my shoulder blade. It feels like it is on FIRE!"

Crewe came flying up onto our bed, "Dad, hurry! Mom has the fires!!! I help rub them out!"

Now, last night I had tricked Rich into rubbing sleeping balm into my scalp. I was laying on the couch in total bliss when my assistant, Crewe, jumped up again, "You have the fires again, on your head. I help get them out!"

not crazy

I am not crazy about the new blog look. I am just stuck between what I like and what i can choose. I will be working many different looks for awhile to see what works.
