Before being married and having children, my travel partner was my sister Amy. We went everywhere together... From silly Mardi Gras and Cancun trips in college to more elaborate Europe trips as we got older -- we were ALWAYS together. As we got older are trips started to dwindle and the ones we did go on always included our hubbies. The reason I mention this, is she came with me to the shower in California and it was the first time in forever that it was just us! You should have heard the things we talked about on the plane. Since when is a 4 hour plane ride so much fun?!?
It was such a perfect girly weekend with my girls! Spa pedicures, shopping in adorable boutiques, lots of wine and lots of girl talk. (Well, Kari's husband Bob, is not a girl, but I consider him one of my girlfriends just the same. Will he kill me for saying that?)
"Pedicure on my Toes, Toes"
"Tryin' on all my Clothes, Clothes"
Shopping @ Farmers Market
Now, we all know that baby showers can be a little, well, how do you say it, baby shower-ish... But Kari's mom out did herself... It was so nice!
The best part -- the cupcakes!! (I am an ADDICT.)
The worst part -- decorating baby onesies... I am an engineer, people, not an artist!
Embarrassingly enough, Kari ended up "fixing" my onesie just make it decent. I can tell you for certain what Baby Girl won't be wearing this spring.
Stephen and Nonna held down the fort here while I was gone!! Thank you guys so much for letting me get a much needed break.
P.S. Funny fact - I delivered my babies when I was 30 weeks and 5 days... Exactly how far along Kari was the day we got to California. Look at how CUTE she is. Besides cute, she was showing me aerobics moves to help strengthen your core... I couldn't even do them and I'm not pregs! !
P.P.S - Amy delivered her son at 30 weeks and 5 days too!
