Okay, Paul is not much of a helper in baby stores as you can see in the picture above, but at home he's such a big help. Last night, I decided to pay my toes some attention and file them. The hope was to repaint them too. I attempted to paint them, but couldn't really reach them. Paul volunteered to paint my toes. I think he felt sorry for me. He said that since we're having a girl he needs to get used to this kind of thing. He was very meticulous in his painting and did a good job. What a helper!
...of our SAVIOR! Happy Easter to you and your family. What a wonderful day it was to celebrate our risen Lord.
Well, really it was a great weekend all together. Here's our weekend in a nutshell. I had the day off of work on Friday so I went with Ashley and Leighton to Discovery Place. It was so fun watching her play and interact in the different exhibits.
On Saturday, Paul and I hosted an oyster roast at our house for both of our families. Last weekend we spent some time in Charleston and on our way home we picked up 2 bushels of oysters. Paul was quite the chef and steamed ALL of them. It was his first time and he did a great job! They were delicious.
We enjoyed playing in the yard too.
That leads me to today! We spent more time with family and sweet little Leighton. We enjoyed a delicious lunch, time in the sun and some time together just sitting outside on the deck talking and relaxing. I couldn't have asked for a better weekend.
It's amazing how 3 years can fly by so quickly. They've been the three best years of my life! There have been some ups and downs, but that comes with marriage. I thank God everyday that I have Paul to share life with. I love you sweetie with all my heart! Happy Anniversary!
A week ago today, heaven welcomed a new little Angel. At 20 weeks, my sister Ashley and my brother-in-law Daniel lost their precious baby boy. The past week has not been an easy one for our family. Please continue to pray for comfort and healing for Ashley and Daniel.
I'm going to warn you up front that this is a very random post.
We had a great weekend and I hope you did too. We spent time outside in the yard, picked up a few things for the nursery and ended the weekend with some of Paul's homemade paninis and guacamole. My sister came over on Sunday to drop off a few baby girl items for us since she is having a BOY! I'm so excited about having a nephew! I had such a good time looking through Leighton's clothes. It's amazing how fast time flies! It seems like yesterday that Leighton was in those little clothes.
As I mentioned, I picked up a few things for the nursery over the weekend. One being baskets for her room. I've been keeping my eyes open for the perfect color basket. I love the two below.
They are from here and here. I ended up finding two baskets for the nursery at Home Goods. The color is perfect and they are functional.
Lastly, here is the bump at 25 weeks.
Note to self...do not take these pictures after a long day of work - you look like a tired mama! :)
