Weekend Wrap-Up

Not going to lie. We were freakin' productive this weekend and I'm pretty doggone proud of us!

I had a list of things I wanted to accomplish this weekend, and we blew that list out of the water.

On Saturday we braved the crowds and went crib shopping. We looked at 3 places before we finally found one we like. We narrowed it down to two choices and eventually we went with Mr. Perfect's first choice, my second. On the condition that if I don't just LOVE it when it comes in (it's ordered), we can go back and get the other one. Mr. Perfect didn't like the bottom on the other. He said it went down too low and he'd constantly catch his foot on it. Valid point.

After that we went and wandered around Tar*get for a while just looking at baby stuff and buying her mattress. Baby mattresses are expensive!!

We got home in time to watch the SEC Championship game (way to go Bama!) and work on Baby Girl's room. I wanted it cleaned out this weekend and Mr. Perfect certainly delivered. Remember this? Check it out now.

Oh yeah. Not only is it empty, but the nasty rug is gone and Mr. Perfect went and got her flooring last night.

Have I mentioned before how much I adore that man?!?

I think he would have kept on working if we'd picked out a paint color already. It would probably be painted. As it is, we picked that out today and he's going to get it tomorrow to paint this week.

Sunday, Mr. Perfect had to go in to work for a few hours so neither of us made it to church.

Yes, I know.. but I didn't want to go by myself.

We went and met the grandparents for Sunday lunch and then my aunt came by to take our Christmas card pictures.

Freakin' ridiculous.

The past four years, we've taken our pics just inside in front of the tree so the animals can all be involved. Well, I think this is the last year for that. One of our dogs is so uncooperative (look at the pics- you can tell who it is), and I think next year, I want really nice pictures of the three of us. So this is the last year of this type of picture.... Kind of sad. =(

I mean seriously, look at Duke?!? He's so special.

My favorite!

Sunday afternoon, Mr. Perfect and I headed to a Jack and Jill shower for our friend's, KP and her hubs. Is it just my husband, or does every guy have to be practically dragged to these things?! But we made it. Baby girl danced on my bladder the whole time we were there. Duh. It was a great time with some old friends we hadn't seen in a while and even some former friends that we haven't seen in a while. Not as awkward as it could have been though. Sweet.

KW & I. She just had her baby girl, Gabby in September and is already ridiculously small again. I kind of hate her.

Bellies! 22 and 35 weeks

Such a fun weekend. This time of year is always busy with the holidays, but with all these babies getting ready to make an appearance, I feel like we're always on the go from some shower or shopping or something. But secretly? I love this. Of course, if my weekends weren't so busy, I might not be this tired heading back to work on Monday! Oh well.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Although I don't comment often - I do follow your blog and pretty much *love* it. :) I am excited for you and your husband about your new arrival (in the least creepy way possible...since we don't know each other and all).

Rando question (I'm going out on a limb here) - my hubs and I are heading to Savannah for the weekend. This is our first trip there (we're from upstate SC)... are you familiar with the area? Any good recs on things we "must" do/see? Places to eat? It's supposed to rain on Saturday - so we're trying to get creative.

If you want, you can email me or comment on my blog...
