I've had a lot of quality time with my awesome brother this week! A highlight was Wednesday night when he came over after church. The plan was to have popcorn and watch a movie. We were chatting on the couch and as Kevin was telling me about this super creepy movie he saw the power went out!! John went to get the flashlight and Kevin kept telling me about this pretty disturbing plot line. It was pitch black and I was so freaked out. It was like ghost stories during sleep overs! Later on Kevin told me that he was getting kinda scared telling the story in the dark too! haha Anyway, after a few minutes the three of us took the flashlight outside to explore. It was a major outage!! So we took a walk in the dark and then went back to the house. About 11pm the power came back on. We decided it was too late to watch a movie, so we popped in some old TV shows and watched a few episodes. It was pretty fun!
(Kevin - he's pretty cute isn't he???)
Tuesday was a day with Heather and it was so much fun! Her husband's grandparents live next door to them and they have a pool. It was almost 100 on Tuesday so we took full advantage! We put Christian in his adorable little hat and swim trunks then made our way over to the blue bliss! It felt so good to relax in the pool on such a hot day! Heather, we really need to start taking pictures of our dates!!
I've been able to do some much needed work in my veggie garden this week too - we're getting LOTS of tomatoes in and enormous cucumbers!
Yesterday was a full day of working in Tucker's room. It was great! I painted his dresser and cleared out the guest bed. I emptied the closet so it's ready to fill with baby boy clothes as soon as we know his size! Today we're hopefully getting the crib out of John's parents attic (we already have one thanks to the wonderful twins!) While I was working in his room I dropped a pair of scissors on my 2nd toe... and it sliced out a sizable chunk of toe! It hurt like wow but it was kinda funny because I hobbled to the bathroom and put my foot in the sink - John was trying to help me and goes, "geez - that's a bleeder alright!" haha I don't know why I think that's funny ... but it was!
And now - what to look forward to??? MY FIRST BABY SHOWER!!! Heather is throwing me a shower on Saturday with some of my High School, college, and work pals!! I can't wait!! One of my good friends from college is bringing us a changing table that a friend donated. So we're going to paint it to match the crib this weekend! After the shower there will be lots more to put in Tucker's nursery so I will post pictures of our progress on Monday!!!
Til then - enjoy some more randomness over at Andrea's!
