a weekend of the best kind.

[ripples from skipping rocks] 

[19 weeks, 6 days | March 30, 2012]

Brats + grilled chicken sandwiches, rootbeer/black cherry soda, & chips out at Lake Mary with some of our best friends. They're moving down to the valley in May, and we're going to miss them so much (as in, I don't know a life without my best friend 5 minutes away). We enjoyed the gorgeous weather, skipping rocks, and the beautiful sunset.

Waffles and hash for breakfast, General Conference-watching, running errands, cleaning, and sewing....Saturday was inspiring and productive. Oh, and it was beautiful weather which merited flip-flops and open windows (both in the apartment and in the car).

Sleeping in, baking cookies, watching Conference with family (and possibly an accidental nap during the last thirty minutes of Conference), eating the most delicious chicken salad sandwiches + homemade broccoli and cheese soup, and laughing until my sides hurt....Sunday was a perfect day to unwind, enjoy being with family, and think about the things that matter most.

Coming Soon:

It's hard to believe that we're halfway to meeting our little jellybean! What do you think? Boy or Girl? Oh, and I hope you had a lovely weekend as well!
