It was another great weekend! VERY different from last weekend, but highly enjoyable. I took Friday off from work and went garage saling with TJ and Kell. I got some onesies for the new baby - yay! They are soooo little. Also got Bella a new pair of shoes. That girl LOVES shoes (and all accessories). She may LOOK like her father's twin, but she's got my love of accessories. :) Came home and took a nap, which I don't often do, but I guess being this pregnant will make you wanna do that sometimes. Then, TJ and I went out for dinner. I had been craving my favorite Chinese place, Hong Kong 97 (weird name, huh?) so we went there. Bella and I took Greg to work, but he arranged for a co worker to take him home when he got off at 2 in the morning! YESSSSS. Thank you! That was the last Friday we have to think about that. Come Monday morning, he's "back in the Volvo saddle again."

Saturday was really a family day. We need to have more of those. We hung out together all day. It's so good for all of us to be together. I find I have more patience with Bella the more time I spend with her. She's so sweet. And mischievous. She gets these looks that let us know she is about to do something pesky. And she loves it! It's usually harmless, but we're working on her NOT pinching me.....ahem. Anyhoo, another afternoon nap was had by the pregnant lady and at night, we went to our friend's house. They are out of town. They have AC. We have a key. It was 100 degrees. 'Nuf said!

Today, we went to church. It's been awhile since we went as a family. It was, well, rough. We finally came to the conclusion that it's just not the church for us. So the search goes on....... but we got another idea for the new baby's name....... WE'RE NOT SAYING IT YET! It's just that everyone has their opinions and criticisms and with my hormones raging, I just can't take it! But you'll know when we choose. We will share it with the world! :-) After church, I read, relaxed, and napped. Again, not something I'm used to doing, but I just physically HAVE to right now. This evening, we've been playing, cleaning, catching up on things we've put off. Greg and Bella went for a long walk. I couldn't bring myself to join them in this 97 degree heat!

All in all, a very good weekend. I hope yours was good too!

Sounds like you had a nice weekend despite the high temps! It is in the 70's but feels like 64 degrees and there is a most delicious breeze so the windows are open and I am in heaven. It's been so awfully hot and humid for the last few weeks - we were due for a reprieve! Hope you have a great week! Can't wait to hear what name you pick! Love ya!

Oh my, I'm slipping. I like to comment on your posts but sorry I haven't ... yet til now. I love hearing about your time spent in "another day another weekend in the life of my pregnant working daughter/mom/wife/friend". I'm amazed you're still working. YOU'RE amazing, Charlotte how active you've been right up to your due date. You are with your beautiful daughter & wonderful husband, & incredible friends having quality time together & still have time to relax with your new unborn sweety-pie tucked away safe & sound. You're doing an awesome "job", honey & I'm so proud of you. Dear Darling Daughter ~ you AMAZE me! xo
