Friday night we had Candace's baby shower at our house, and had a complete blast hanging with all the girls and celebrating with Candace! So much fun, in fact, that our house wasn't cleared out until about 1am...then once we were done picking up we didn't get into bed until about 2:30am. Long story short, Ben and I both slept through our alarms on Saturday morning. We got some much needed sleep, but decided it was too late in the day to head all the way out to the resort for a such a short time. So, we postponed our little getaway until this upcoming weekend - we're still looking very forward to it and are excited to go on a little mini-vacation!
So...in lieu of our resort weekend...we still decided to keep Saturday as a full day-o'-fun with just the two of us. And we had a blast! We went out to a great brunch...then went and looked at new TVs and eye glasses for Ben...(and, of course, I got a little shopping in!)... Then we headed over to Babies R' Us to start looking at baby furniture, bedding, necessities, etc. For those of you that know Ben, this won't surprise you at all... He definitely didn't start off too excited about this little Babies R' Us errand, but by the time we left the store he was already researching strollers, high chairs, cribs, you name it...on any consumer report he could find (shocker...I know!). The poor little girl who stopped to ask if we needed any help was bombarded by questions from Ben that she had no clue how to answer. It was funny to me...it was so Ben. It made me happy that he got so in to the baby stuff =)
After Babies R' Us, we headed to a movie (saw Miracle at St. Anna - pretty good!) then ended the day at Palio's for dinner. All in all, it was a great day! It's always nice to be reminded about how much you love hanging out with just your spouse...just the two of us...we really do have fun together.
Just FYI...we're already working on our top lists of names for Baby P...not ready to share them yet, but let us know if you have any cool name ideas.
Oh! And here's a pic of all the hostesses from Candace's shower on Friday night..thank you girls so much for all of your help!
