Monday Morning Musings | No. 203

A little of this, a little of that!

This weekend felt like a whirlwind, and honestly by last night I was like HOW is it already Sunday?! Ah!

On Friday night, a handful of my close girlfriends threw me the most beautiful baby shower (I wore this dress!) for our little one. And it truly was one of my most favorite nights of all time. Just being surrounded by so many women I admire and adore was *so* incredibly special.

We sat around the table sharing stories until the candles burned out and it was far past all of our bed times, which is the kind of night I live for! To say it was a magical evening would be an understatement.

On Saturday, we spent the entire day at home doing all the baby prep things! We watched tutorials and practiced with both our carseat and stroller, which was so fun and funny. We also started the Taking Cara Babies Newborn class, which was incredibly helpful! By the time we went to bed on Saturday night we had to laugh because we had spent the day buckling, strolling, and swaddling a teddy bear. Ha! You really can’t make this stuff up.

And on Sunday after church, Ryan and I swung by our favorite little spot on Park Avenue for a quick brunch before heading home. And then I spent the afternoon with my mom and sister packing my hospital bag and diaper bag… which felt surreal. I’m still a few weeks out but my doctor on Friday was like, um… you need to get on this! I was so grateful for their help.

Truly such a fun and beautiful weekend, but like I said, a whirlwind for sure!

Okay, now that I’ve totally caught you up on our weekend, let’s get into the five things I’m loving right now…
