On Saturday, we both hit the ground running. For her birthday (which we celebrated last Thursday with a traditional pizza party), all Forrest's mom wanted was for her boys to help their dad clean out the shed behind the house. What an event!! Forrest was busy cleaning and organizing all morning! While he was being a good son, I was in domestic diva mode. I had laundry to fold, tons of things to unpack and put away from the Girlfriend Gala (more on that later) and a batch of Neiman Marcus brownies to bake. After that, it was time to get ready for Lauren Puckett's baby shower! I can't wait to meet little Hudson and can't believe he will be here so soon! Lauren got TONS of cute baby swag to ring in Hudson's arrival! I realized that other than a baby "party" in a bar a few years ago, I haven't been to an actual baby shower since my friend Emily Smith's shower--that's right, the shower for her before she was born, and it just so happens that Emily started college last fall! Clearly I am rusty!!!
|One of these things is not like the other.........|
On Sunday we went to speak at the 8am Mass, ran a few errands (which included a stop at Jack's for breakfast--a real treat!) and then went back to the 10:30 Mass. After all of our churching, we went home for another quick change. Forrest stayed busy in the yard all day while I went to the Gadsden Service Guild New Member tea. So many great girls got in this year (including Farrah, Denise, Sarah Kathryn, Kristen, and Lisa, just to name a few friends) and they all seem eager to be a part of our group! The tea was a lot of fun and was the perfect way to mix and mingle with all of the new girls, as well as the "old girls"! After the tea, I went to my Aunt's for a while before picking up Forrest to go to dinner at Mom and Dad's. Beef tenderloin kabobs--yum! Can you tell why we are both dragging today???
