Friday - I got to leave work early so I hit the mall. I'm 34 and pregnant and I bought things at two stores - Forever 21 and Motherhood Maternity. Does anyone think that's weird? ha! I got a good pair of black maternity pants that should help me get through the next few months but I have to say I'm just not crazy about maternity tops so I went to forever 21 and got a long shirt that will fit me and still look somewhat trendy.
Saturday was one of those great days where I didn't even shower until that night. I slept late, worked in the yard and cleaned the house. I finally feel good and I got caught up on things I've been neglecting. Mean while - Scott and Steve hit the gym and then went to eat at a new Fried Chicken place in town. They took Emily with them and Scott sent me these pictures from his i-phone.
I had the MOST fun afternoon today. For the last few years - I have heard stories about our pastor's niece, Catherine. She has one of those amazing stories of someone who suffered with infertility so they decided finally to adopt and before that adopted daughter was born - she found out she was pregnant! So now they have a BEAUTIFUL daughter who is 15 months old and a precious son that is 10 months old. They have a double blessing. She has been such a HUGE encouragement to me in the last year - she has e-mailed me so many times and has just lifted my spirits. And today we got to meet in person because she was in town visiting her family. This is her son with her cousin Hannah.
I told Scott when I left to go over there that I was only going to stay for an hour - maybe less and I ended up staying for 4 hours. I just had the best time. Catherine's mom and our pastor's wife (they are sisters) and Elizabeth and Hannah just kept me entertained with their stories. We sat on their beautiful deck and just talked and talked. I felt like I had know Catherine forever - she is just as friendly and sweet in person as she is in her e-mails. This is the two of us and her kids in this picture.
I hope ya'll had a good weekend too!!!!
P.S. I'd like to welcome my DAD to the world of blogging!!!! Now if we can get Scott and my brother and his new wife blogging - the whole family will be in on the action! You'll have to check my dad out! :-)
