Dan and I had a great Easter weekend. Friday we saw a great comedy show at the Funny Farm. There were some british comedians that were really good. We had a great time. One of the coolest things happened on Friday too…I felt the baby move! I had a big dinner which consisted of a salmon sandwich (sounds gross, but it’s really good) and tater tots (reminding us all of good ol’ Napolian Dynamite) and a brownie topped with icecream (which I could barely finish). I think the brownie is what set little sqiggles in motion! It was such a great feeling.
Saturday Dan and I went back to Ga Baby and Kids to finalize our baby furniture purchase. We stopped off at “Baby’s Room” another baby furniture place first, but we weren’t too impressed with their furniture. The staff didn’t seem as nice and helpful either. So, we finally decided on a discounted floor model that was one of the higher-end of their lines at GA Baby and Kids. It had been discounted a few thousand dollars and with the amount of furniture, quality of hard wood, and european design, I think we got a great deal. Here’s the furniture we decided on:
The floor model that was discounted included a crib, armoire, 5 drawer chest, dresser with detachable changing station, and nightstand. The picture looks like the furniture is black, but it is really a dark wood color instead of painted black. Since it is a floor model, we’re getting the room finished this week, and the furniture delivered on Saturday. I can’t wait! right now the room is bare, but once we get the carpet stretched and cleaned this week we’ll be in good shape! We picked out our glider as well. The ones at Ga Baby and Kids were about a thousand dollars for the exposed wood gliders, and that just seemed a bit too pricey. So, we looked at Babies R Us and they had lots to choose from. This is what we decided on:
It doesn’t look like much, but as soon as I sat in it I just sank down in the chair. It is SO comfortable! We got the ottoman that goes with it, and it was WAY less than the thousand that the other place wanted. We’ll get that in about 12 weeks. So, that’s it for the big items! We just need to plan on painting the room after we find out what we’re having on Monday!
We ended the evening with my Mom and sister Amanda coming over for dinner. We enjoyed dinner and a movie. The movie (Disaster movie) was a little silly…but still entertaining. We had a good time coloring and decorating eggs and spending time with each other for the holiday.
We had such a great time yesterday for Easter. We started the day off taking care of the little boogers in the church nursery. We had about 12 little 1 year olds to watch and it actually went pretty well. We enjoyed the service and message that Steven preached. There’s always something that I can take away from his teachings.
Lunch was at Aunt Angie’s house like the years before. We always have a great time with the family catching up. We hadn’t seen everyone since Christmas, and some it’s been longer. I love visiting family and seeing the many ways that God has blessed us all and for that I am thankful.
Sunday night we had a wonderful time over at our friends Scott and Kristin’s house. We had a lovely dinner and had a great time laughing and goofing off with friends. We had our first-time ever grown-up Easter egg hunt! It was a lot of fun…most of all because I won! Yep, that’s right I found the most eggs. It must’ve been mother hen’s intution! The guys started up a bon fire and we had a good time hanging out and watching the guys see how high they could get the flames to rage. Good times.
