Weekend Wrap Up.

No rest for the weary in this house folks...we were on the go from the time we got off work on Friday to Sunday at 7pm.

We are in total baby prep mode and are up to our ears in gift bags, boxes and Amazon deliveries.

What I really need is for Amazon Prime to offer is a 500 square foot extension to our house - do you think they can deliver that in 2 days for free?

No, I didn't think so either...well here is a recap of our busy weekend.

Friday we dinned with 2 of our fave people at Southbound. The food was delicious and so was the company. Nothing like good friends and good food to end a crazy work week.

Saturday, I woke up at 6am because you know, I'm 32 weeks pregnant and can't sleep. I cleaned the kitchen, re-oranized the cabinets to accommodate all the new bottles, breast pump supplies and other baby items that keep piling up and wrote a mountain of thank you notes. Around 9am Lucie's curtains were delivered by my new go to sewing lady and I'm in love. I can't wait to get them up and show them off. When Reid got home from the gym, we finished painting Lucie's dresser and grabbed lunch before heading to infant CPR class at noon.

After we learned how to successfully save our baby in the event of an emergency, we treated ourselves to naps on separate floors of the house. Reid took the downstairs couch with the pups, and I claimed the master bedroom.

Alarm went off at 4:30 and out the door we went again to a quick stop at Chick Fil-A and then down town for a trolly brewery tour. Yes, you read that, at almost 8 months pregnant, paid to get on a trolly with 25 other people and brewery hop. No, I'm not crazy...we bought this Groupon, along with 6 other of friends, before I even got pregnant and it was about to expire. We had a great time but I was wiped out!

Sunday showed no mercy either. Up again by 7am and mind racing with so many things to get done. Laundry, finally unpacking our bags from the beach, more baby organizing, a completely embarrassing pregnancy rage moment and then showering and getting ready for my baby shower in Williamsburg.

Reid and I hit the road around 11:30 and made it down to Williamsburg just in time for me to raid my parent's fridge and a quick change for the baby shower.

My fabulous Godmother Joanne, and my mother's two amazing friends hosted the sweetest shower in honor of Lucie and me. The personal touches were just so sweet and I feel so grateful to be bringing our daughter into this family filled with such amazing and strong women.

Since the Williamsburg shower was the total highlight of my weekend, I decided to spare you from all the boring aspects of my weekend and show you what you really want to and fabulous shower decor.

I died for the personal and special touches at this shower. The monogramed cake, real silver and china passed down from mother to daughter, sterling silver baby cups hanging from the chandelier, the fact that one of those cups happened to be my own mothers baby cup and my baby picture.


Lucie is one lucky little lady! 

I honestly can't believe you made it through this entire deserve some wine for sure! In fact, have a whole bottle for me.

Did I happen to mention tomorrow is a special day on Virginia Sweet? And we will be celebrating with a gorgeous give away?

Hint hint, I have them on in the photo above!
