3 days!

This is the greatest week ever!! Tomorrow will mark snow day #3 for the week. The week began with an awesome trip to Boone this past weekend to see my baby brother (who is not so baby since he's in college now, he is well on his way to a beard, and has hair as long as mine). Even Gretchen was able to come with us for a weekend with the family, and it was so much fun to be together! We ate a lot, played a lot of games, and laughed until we cried. I have the best family in the world! Our car trip home took 9 hours (should have taken 5 1/2 or 6), and was VERY slow. Fortunately, Dad is so experienced in driving in crappy weather that we were safe the whole time! We found out on the way home that school had been canceled on Monday because of snow. Much easier to relax and hang out in the car when you don't have the impending doom of an early morning ahead of you!

We woke up to a little less than a foot of snow on Monday. We were able to get out to the store on Monday afternoon to pick up a few things. We had cleared out the fridge (especially the milk) before we left because we didn't want it to go bad! Who knew it was supposed to snow?! It's certainly a challenging act to walk carefully in the snow with a large belly that makes your sense of balance all crazy. We were out again today, so Mom and I went to lunch and to pick out paint for Babe's room. This is the big painting weekend, so we are all ready now! Kristen comes in tomorrow (and school is canceled once again), and we can't wait for her visit! My first shower is on Sunday after church, so I'm really looking forward to that. Our first baby class (Confident Childbirth- whatever that means!) is Thursday night, and then we'll get to hear her little heartbeat again at our appt. on Friday.

Life is so good. I wish that Daniel and Gretchen lived closer so we could all play together. It's so weird- I was the first to leave home, but now that I'm back in Richmond and living on my own, it feels so strange to have them in a different city and state. Something doesn't seem quite right! It's been 23 years since I lived in Richmond without one of them!!

Now it's time to motivate myself to clean and be productive. I'd rather just sit around or take a nap!


  1. What color did you choose for the nursery?

  2. That is exactly what I was going to ask! I'm glad your trip to Boone was fabulous... I really miss you guys... is everything going well? Hugs to you both (or I guess to all three of you!!!)
