Life Lately.

Hey Friends.

Is anyone else exhausted with the week thus far?

I know it's only Tuesday but it's sorta kicking my butt already.

So, so much has been going on over the last couple weeks and I hate that posts around here have been a little scarce.

I think I owe you a little life lately post...

Lucie's first party!
Lucie had her first party thrown in her honor over the past weekend. My sweet God Family, who might as well be blood relatives, threw Reid, Lucie and I the sweetest little shower. Monograms galore, sweet party favors, delicious food and drink and amazing company from all over Virginia and Colorado.

And can I just say that I die every time I look at this sweet cake and cookies with Lucie's monogram... It just makes me feel like she is so real and already such a big part of our family.

A very special thanks to Palmer for helping me open all the presents....I didn't have a clue what anyone gave me until I got home but the look on his face was priceless.

All of the ladies in my extended family completely outdid themselves with personal touches and such sweet gestures. I love them all beyond words.

An update on her nursery.
Things are also coming along nicely in Lucie's nursery.

Sorry, no pictures yet but we have made some headway in cleaning out the room and finally, finally selecting a paint color. I only have 6 different samples up on the wall currently, but who is really counting besides Reid?

We also took advantage of the 20% off Pottery Barn Kids sale and pulled the trigger on this glider and rug.  I still cannot believe we spent that much money on a chair but we did, so now I am officially excited. This mirror caught my eye at work the other day, and I just had to have it. Her nursery is heading in a different direction than what I had originally planned, but I'm loving it.

Work is work.
Work is so busy right now, I don't know which way is up. My main store is about to embark on a 6 month remodel. This complete gut job has been pending for literately years and now that I'm prepping for maternity leave in 3 short months, my luck would have it that surprise... demo starts July 6th!
womp womp.

Top that off with our semi annual physical inventory this weekend, 4th of July holiday and a week long vacation we have planned in mid July.... to say that I will be one busy girl at the ole enterprise is an understatement.

That's all I got for now.
