Weekend Recap

So, I had another very busy weekend! On Saturday, I went to a really nice baby shower for a woman I used to work with. She is due in 5 weeks and they are waiting to find out the sex of the baby. Now, can I just say something....? I don't understand people who decide to wait. The explanation I usually get from these couples is that they want to be surprised. Now, aren't you just delaying the surprise by waiting? Are you any less surprised when they tell you in the hospital months before the due date? I think not! I am definitely finding out the sex - I need to plan, decorate, and monogram for goodness sakes! Why does it bother me so much that some people choose to wait? Because I really don't like having to buy gender-neutral baby gifts. I had to buy all yellow and green items for my friend when all I really wanted was some adorable pink or blue! Oh, well - she will be getting an additional baby gift from me - hopefully something pink!

I had such a lovely Sunday. The weather in DC was perfect and I spent the day with my wonderful family! It was not only a day to celebrate my Mom and Grandmother but also my stepfather's birthday. Here is a pic of my Mom and I. She is the cutest - I feel so lucky to have her nearby!

I also could not wait!

I have a friend who waited both times, and she said it was more about experiencing it all at once.

I seriously need time to decorate accordingly and monogram as well!

I won't be able to wait either and agree 100%. I'm all about the pink or blue :)

I'm glad you were able to spend Mother's Day with your mom. It really is nice being close by. That is a lovely picture of the 2 of you!
