We had a pretty big weekend over here. Like I mentioned on Friday, I found a sweet glider for the nursery on Craigslist. We went to pick it up Friday night and the people were super nice. They gave us lots of helpful baby advice! Once we got it home, of course all the animals had to check it out. Then, on Sunday, hubby put up the shelves we found to make the bookshelf wall I wanted. I love it!!
We also finally bought a new grill. We’ve had a charcoal grill forever, and although I don’t think anything rivals the taste, we’ve been talking about getting a gas one forever. It’s just so much easier. So we bit the bullet this weekend, brought it home and even assembled it ourselves! We only had a few minor mishaps including putting the wheels on wrong (so both the ones with locks were on one side) and dropping a few screws under the deck (which meant we had to pry up a deck board to get them). But in the end, success! And it is awesome. By the time we got our act together and went grocery shopping, it was late…but you better believe we were out there grilling our dinner at 10pm 🙂
Your weekly dose of animal shenanigans!
Baby update. We hit 21 weeks this weekend. This past week was a bit rough. I had three days in a row of some of the worst nausea I’ve had this whole pregnancy. BUT, I did find some cute maternity jean shorts and Gap and I love them! The bump continues to grow. I can definitely tell it’s there more and more each day….but it’s definitely not to the “she’s clearly pregnant” stage yet.
Also…that tank top…although not always true during this pregnancy….pretty much the story of my life pre-pregnancy 🙂
