Long. Overdue. Update.

Sorry it's taken me SO long to update from our trip to Sea-town. I'm a terrible, no good, very bad blogger these days ;-)
Actually we've just been super busy!
Here's the basic run down of what's been happening:

8/27-Thursday left around 1ish, uneventful drive, got into town around 7:30 and went to dinner (Old Spaghetti Factory YUM! one of my FAVORITES!), stayed up way too late talking with my siblings.
8/28-Friday was our "down day" (as much of a down day as you can have with my family LOL) Batman stayed at my parents house most of the day and got homework done... had I mentioned Batman was going back to school for he MoE? Well he is and the first week he already had 2 papers to write. I ran errands with my dad- costco, lunch, shopping, etc, then spent the evening with my mom, sis and the japanese exchange student... ate at applebees. For some reason while we are in town they hardly ever eat at home... weird! Stayed up way too late again and got almost no sleep (Batman and I were sharing my little bro's twin bed... kind of a tight fit these days) ;-)
8/29-Saturday my SHOWER!! It was SO awesome!! My mom's friend put it on at her house and they did a full brunch (Same lady that threw my bridal shower 5ish years ago). I think we had about 15 people show and they were all people that I love most in the world ;-) Mainly women my mom's age, but I grew up with as role models and such. It was a "princess" theme so Olive got a ton of pink, princessy things... including a Sleeping Beauty costume for her to wear when she is like 4!

LOL I LOVE IT!! (and of course my favorite part was my mom's german potato salad.. SO YUMMY I wish I could eat it every day!) Here are a bunch of pics:

After the shower we met up with Batman and my bros and dad and headed off to my cousin's wedding. So beautiful (aka very expensive lol) and she looked gorgeous! It was funny how many people came up to me and said how much she and I look alike... well DUH! We are cousins, and our mom's look alike, so why wouldn't we too? Crazy! We didn't stay too long at the reception, just through the cake cutting and then the sibs and Batman and I went and saw District 9... pretty good! :)
8/30- Sunday we skipped church (I know... the horror LOL) and went to a late breakfast (IHOP) and then headed downtown for the Mariner's game. They lost but it was SUPER fun!! It was kind of a bummer that Ichiro and Griffey didn't play too. Oh well though! I hope that we will get to take Olive there sometime when she is older! We LOVE baseball in our (meaning my parent's) house and I loved going to games when I was growing up. After the game we did some shopping for my little bro- he started his senior year last Monday, but they hadn't gone school clothes shopping for him yet! And wonder of wonders my parents bought me a new purse for my bday!!! YES!! I was hoping they would (that has been their go to gift for the last few years)
It's not a Coach (which is the usual), but I LOVE it!!! We found it at Nordstrom and it is definitely big enough to double as a diaper bag LOL It's basically like this one: only more patent leather-y black and silver hardware instead of bronzey. I already started using it and I will admit it IS a little big... but it fits SO much stuff, I know it will be great for all sorts of baby stuff ;-)
8/31-Monday we got up early and headed home so Batman could make his class. Another uneventful drive. We got home unloaded everything, cleaned all the dog hair out of the car and then loaded back up to go to class and a cheer meeting. Whew!! Busy!
Then all last week things were super hectic! I was trying to catch up on stuff with work... still trying to ;-) and the evenings were spent working on all sorts of projects along with softball (Batman, not me) We ended up getting a closet organizer unit thing for the nursery and got that put in over this last weekend (IL helped).
Then my bday was Friday (9/4) so we did dinner with gma and IL. Batman and his mom and dad got me a camcorder :) It's really nice (even though I told Batman NOT to spend much if anything on me this year) and will be great once Olive is here. I did tell him though he will need to leave it at HOME on D day... no WAY is he taping her "coming into the world" LOL (and no still pictures either... I don't need a recap of THAT in pics)
All weekend we spent working on the nursery and sorting through baby stuff. It looks like we won't have to purcahse too much and thankfully we got a few gift cards so it will help with how much we'll have to spend out of our own pocket.
I don't have my 34 wk belly pics yet... well at least it's on my camera, just not uploaded ;-)

This week has been just as hectic: Softball, sewing, BF class tonight, cheer tryouts Thursday, Friday and Saturday, drill weekend... GAH!! When will it ever end?

Thanks for hanging in there if you got through all this. Hopefully, I can get some pics uploaded of the nursery and bedding soon! It's turning out SUPER cute! ;-)

Looks like you had an awsome time in Seattle. Glad you had a good time away.

Christine said...

sounds like you had fun in Seattle!!! Can't wait to see your new belly pic!

Melissa said...

LOL, my husband bought us a camcorder right before my baby's due date with the intention of bringing it to the hospital to capture special moments and such. I made it VERY CLEAR that there would be no intimate birthing movies, which apparently my husband wanted to do. The camcorder was left at home, LOL.

So glad you had a nice shower. It sounds like your trip was phenomenal. Welcome back!

Glad you had a good time! Josh has gotten the same threat with the video camera and normal camera. Luckily he doesn't know how to upload pics to the computer.
