There's been a handful of happenings around here that aren't significant in themselves to deserve their own posts but that I want to share anyways. So here's a compilation of some fun we've been having lately....
J and I spent the 4th of July out at the lake in our usual tradition although this year was a bit different than years in the past. We got up there Friday morning and stayed only a single night because I'm not sure this prego-bod of mine could have done another night in the pop-up. It was supposed to be over 90 degrees all weekend and thankfully the heat wasn't as tough to deal with as we anticipated. Since I can't actually get in the lake (or rivers or streams, etc etc etc) I was a bit worried about not having a way to cool off easily but plenty of water and cold drinks, dipping my feet in and rides on the boat were lifesavers. It's crazy to look back at all the summers we've spent up at the lake and know that next summer it won't just be the two of us anymore!
love this summer. She was a stunning bride, the forecast for rain didn't produce, they shared in an Irish blessing much like the one J and I had at our own wedding and the evening went off fantastically. Complete with BBQ for dinner, cupcakes and a cookie bar, and plenty of dancing it was great to celebrate another marriage with close friends. Also, I'm thrilled this dress still fits although it's quite different than the last time I wore it when we were in Mexico for spring break!
Now here's to a few smaller happenings around here. The other night our neighbors puppy decided she didn't want to be in her yard anymore and instead dug under the fence to come play with Ollie. It was quite the surprise to see her wiggle her way under and they had quite the ball running laps in the yard. After a few minutes of play time (and enough time for J to fill in the hole she dug) we kindly returned her to her own yard laughing at her mischievous ways.
Baby boy officially attended his first MLB game over the weekend. It was scorching hot, probably around 95 degrees and our original seats were directly in the sun. Thankfully after sneaking our way into some shaded seats we were able to enjoy the rest of the game and avoid heat stroke! I can't wait to bring him to games next summer as a 9 & 10 month old!
We've been making some serious progress in little man's nursery over the last few weeks and I'm happy to say there's only one major thing that needs to be hung on the walls, one more sewing project I have to tackle and one more piece of "furniture" to buy and his room will basically be ready! We're waiting until after my baby shower to do a lot of the last minute smaller purchases we'll need (onesies, diapering supplies, etc etc) but his room is basically ready for him to arrive and is Ollie's new favorite hang out place. And mine too if we're being honest. Sometimes I sit in there imaging holding him on my chest instead of in my belly. Ollie walks around sniffing things and peaks through the bars into the crib. So crazy that he'll be here in around 80 days!
