Weekend Update

-Courtney and Renee threw us an absolutely fantastic baby shower over the weekend! It was a tremendous blessing, and we were given some great gifts! I will post more pictures after I go steal the pics that Kaitlin took, because in almost every picture my dad took, I have my eyes closed, or look like a goon. Case in point:

Yes, I am a giant.

- Justin and I both have to work pretty much all week. Every year, I ask myself why we don't plan ahead and take a few extra days off. It would make everything so much easier! All our Christmas shopping is pretty much done. We do still need to pick up a few baby essentials though, and I'd like to get that done before Christmas.

-I think I am going to try the Williams-Sonoma recipe for Bacon-Wrapped Beef Tenderloin tonight. For some reason, the recipe has always intimidated me, but I'm not sure why. Do y'all have any recipes like that? Things that just seem intimidating?

-I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to wear for the big, fancy Christmas Eve dinner.

-It looks like we won't have a white Christmas this year, and I'm sad!


  1. Your shower looks nice and bright! I hope work isn't too bad this week and maybe I can send you some of the snow we're supposed to be getting here in Missouri.

  2. LOL at your comment below the shower picture because the first thing I noticed was not that your eyes were closed, but that you are so tall!

  3. Giraffes should be taller than other animals. It's completely natural.

  4. Mer,
    I love the picture ... your tummy is so beautiful!! I wonder when Lizard will make her appearance?! Exciting and terrifying all at once ... Have a great week.

  5. Oh Gosh, I can't remember the State you live in, but here in Iowa, we're suppose to get another 12+ inches of snow within the next few days.... 2 weeks ago we got 14 inches! It's horrible! lol I love snow, but not that much!

    You are very tall! haha I'm usually the one in the picture who looks like a midget lol, I can only imagine us taking a picture together! haha We'd look ridiculous!

    I hope all goes well this week and that you get to enjoy your fancy dinner!! Have a Merry Christmas!

  6. You look so cute!
    PS- I'm pretty sure we're going to have a white Christmas here in Kansas. Not to rub in in or anything. =)

  7. Your eyes might be closed but you still look cute!
    How tall are you? I'm 5'9.5 and thankfully my sister is half an inch taller so I look shorter in all of my important life event photos. ;)
