So I have the most amazing husband and step dad ever! My mom has been working a lot so she hasn't been able to do much Christmas shopping which is killing her so she wanted me to go with her on Saturday. That wouldn't have been a problem but Pat and I had already planned on working on the nursery. So my step dad offered to come over and help. Friday night Pat and I got the room painted. Saturday morning we got up and made breakfast for my parents. We made pancakes, eggs and bacon. It was yummy. I've been wanting pancakes but Pat doesn't like breakfast for dinner even though that used to be my favorite dinner growing up!!! After that my mom, Ally and I headed to the crazy mall. Ashley and her friend met up with us there. I got a few things crossed off my list and after I told my mom she had to start buying stuff she did too. hehe. When we got back to my house about 7 that night the nursery was all put together. They painted and hung the chair rail, steam cleaned the carpets and put together the crib, changer, end table and glider. It looks so good! I am so grateful to have such amazing people in my life. I appreciate everything they did to get the room ready while I was out shopping. Hopefully this week we get the closet organizer installed, some little spots touched up and finish decorating.

When we were at the mall, I came across a kiosk that sold hair bows so I decided to get Savannah her first bow. I am sure I'll be torturing her with them as she grows up! They are just too cute not to. I am in love with zebra print and hot pink right now. That is what I originally wanted to do the nursery in but couldn't find anything in those colors so I figured I could use it everywhere else.

We had our first birthing class last night. It was pretty informative and I am glad we are doing it but it makes for a long Monday. We left our house at 5:45, grabbed a bite to eat at Subway and made it to the class just as they were about to start at 7. That means for the next 5 weeks we'll have to leave even earlier. I don't get home from work until about 5:15ish so I have no time to just chill out. We didn't get home until about 10:15 or so. Pat did have to give me a 30 minute massage in the class which was pretty awesome since he hates doing it at home. My doctor's office, hospital I will be delivering at and the birthing class is all in Clear Lake which is about 45 minutes in traffic from our house. It's worth it though because the hospital by our house isn't as good and I'd rather drive a little further and know I am in good hands. Of course I was late to work this morning by 30 minutes. Hopefully I can wake up next Tuesday on time!!! I was just so exhausted and still am!!!

Benji has been awfully cuddly lately. Here is a picture of him all snuggled up with me while I was watching a movie the other day. He is just too darn cute. I know him and Bella are going to love Savannah!!! Bella already loves her toys....hehe

I hope everyone enjoys their week! And if you haven't started Christmas shopping yet, you better start soon. Only 18 days left!!!!!
