This weekend I had to catch up on grocery shopping for the next 2 weeks in addition to shopping for the little one AND getting the nursery completed. Did I get it done? YES! I probably tired myself out more that I should have but once I get going I cannot stop. Ryan reminded me not to overdo but better said than done.
I am cherishing my nap time, obviously not as much as I should but I am getting more tired and my feet are killing me, especially when I run errands from 1 pm to 7:30pm. Yes, I know, I know.
This past Saturday I had my 1st Michigan baby shower. I say this because my mother had thrown me one back in May when I headed to Houston for my sister’s wedding. The ladies at church got a wonderful shower and games together and we had a lovely time.
How about some yummy punch with crustless mini quiches, lemon cheesecakes, fruit cheesecakes, fruit-filled chocolate bowls? Yes, I was all very delicious! We played 2 games where the ladies had to guess who the baby would look like or be most like either Ryan or me. The game was very amusing.
It was nice to receive more of my items from the baby registry and it inspired all my arranging I did on Labor Day. I finally updated my registry on Babies ‘r Us and Amazon, so I know all that I have left. It is pretty amazing the things that one needs to bring a new life into this world. There are so many CUTE things too. Either way, I was blessed and grateful with th baby shower my church family put together. It was nice visiting too!
Monday I worked on the half nursery I have. The wall decorations are all up and finished but the bedding for the crib is not so I will wait till tomorrow to show you an update. It has been a huge relief to get another huge part of getting ready for the little one. It is exciting!
I took a break from decorating on Monday to make a delicious lunch. I made burgers along with some crispy potato wedges and a carrot and kohlrabi slaw that was delicious. Ryan claimed that the fries were the best I had ever made. That is really saying something. Really.
Here are the quick recipes for the Potato wedges:
