Hm, not sure why I titled this in the plural form, as there was only one baby shower and singular day date this weekend, but somehow it flowed more nicely. The jest of it though, Saturday was so much fun!
It started with Julie’s baby shower that was just beautiful. I get so excited to celebrate babies, especially someone’s first, because it really is such an incredibly special time in their life. And if there happens to be wine, well that just makes it sweeter (wink).
I tried to play it cool but when it comes to games my inner Monica Gellar just can’t be muzzled and it showed as I giddily accepted one of the prizes. I also loved the diaper note idea and think these will certainly be sweet to read at those 12am diaper changes (and the 2am and 4am…).
Julie has some really wonderful friends (and family!) and I was so thrilled to finally meet Alyssa and Brittany, who were both so sweet, just as I expected. I feel like I’ve known Alyssa for years, and as I predicted, she had me laughing the whole time!
Though we love a good dinner out, I’ve been craving some adventure so we switched things up and got a sitter for the afternoon to hit up the USNWC’s Brew Bash.
Local brewers offered 4oz sample pours and we wasted no time joining in…
However, as much as we love beer samples, we were more drawn to the activities. I’ve been wanting to do the ropes course for a while now and the new one over the river was just too tempting to pass up.
Fun fact: I’m scared of heights. It makes my stomach flipflop and my legs shake, which only made me more determined to conquer it. With David’s encouragement, we suited up and went for it.
I wish I could have brought my camera up there, but you’ll just have to take my word for it- we ended up completing both black (expert level) courses! By the end, my arms were shaking and we were pouring sweat, but victory tasted so sweet.
Sunday was a TCB day (taking care of business). And that we did. We knocked out multiple lingering chores, including going through all the girls’ clothes and organizing their closets while separating out clothes to donate.
I also hit up the grocery store and after reading this funny yet accurate article, I couldn’t resist buying a bottle of Pelligrino.
…Annnnnnnd splurging on cedar planks for dinner.
Today is starting off like a true Monday, as Kaitlyn is up brighter and earlier than usual, but after a fun weekend, I feel ready for it. And with that, I’m off!
