I swear I am awake

Good morning friends!  Back at it on a Monday.  I look sleepier in these pictures than I am - I blame allergies.  I actually was quite rested this weekend even if it was a hair on the busy side!  It's been nice and cool at night and that really aids in sleeping I've found!

Saturday I went to the baby/kid/maternity/etc consignment sale with my mom.  We got to the sale right about the time it opened.  I tell you - I got a few more items for myself to get through the rest of the pregnancy into winter - but I also got a bunch of outfits for baby boy and the stuff was SO cheap!  There will be another one of these sales in my area about three weeks before my due date and I think if I'm up to it I might have to go back!

Sunday I had my first baby shower with my mom's family - it was really nice.  It was a rainy cool day so there was no better way to spend the time honestly!  And we got some really nice stuff for our little man, including the stroller we wanted and lots of clothes - in varying sizes which is awesome.  I was worried we get all newborn things, but we have stuff that may take us up through the first year.  One of my cousins was also sweet enough to get a couple of things for me - some nice pajamas for after.  She worked in OB for years though, so I guess she gets it!  Overall it was a nice weekend!  How was your weekend?


  1. Glad to hear you had such a great weekend! Sounds like you got some nice stuff from the shower and that sale!

  2. I had a much busier weekend, but still lots of fun - yours sounds like a good time: shopping, friends, presents! Love your maxi!

  3. Glad you picked up a bunch of stuff and the sale and got so many wonderful gifts at the shower!

  4. I think that buying clothes in all sizes is so helpful! They grow out of things so fast. Also, your cousin is awesome for buying you something as well. The mom's sometimes get forgotten about after baby comes. Glad you had a good weekend and scored some goodies. I wanna see some cute little baby clothes :)

  5. So cute! Awesome job at the sale and I bet the shower was super fun!

  6. Your weekend sounds great! I'm so glad that you hot some maternity stuff for winter - I've also started looking for some sweaters and tights now. The baby shower sounds awesome - did you take any pics? I'd love to see! :)

  7. Pregnancy suits you! You look beautiful!!


  8. Sounds as if you had a great weekend Beth.Nice to get some pressies for yourself too:)

  9. So happy you received a lot of stuff at your shower! My friend shower is in 2 weeks and I'm a little stressed, only because it's going to be at my home and 70 people RSVPed. I'm sure I'll be happy on the day of, but until then, I'm worried about having everything in place :)
