LONG weekend

We had a GREAT long weekend!

Friday night we had dinner at Texas Road house with a friend for her birthday! It was a lot of fun, even though we had Cori with us. She behaved very well and I was thanking my Best Buy credit card for allowing me to purchase my iPad with 0% interest for 12 months. Cori LOVES watching all her little shows on there, and it keeps her entertained and happy. After we got back James went with my brother and some friends to ride 4 wheelers. As much as I LOVE riding and feel so left out when they all leave me at home (while I'm pregnant) I LOVE letting Cori snuggle in my bed and watch tv until she falls asleep. If James is home he won't let me do this....so we take advantage of our time alone without daddy =)

Saturday I woke up early and snuck out of the house before anyone else was awake. I had an appointment to get my hair cut and had some errands to run so it was some good alone time. I found myself at the nail salon to get a pedicure and my eye brows waxed and ended up getting my nails done too (for the first time since my wedding, almost 4 years ago)....I deserve to be pampered.....right?? As I was leaving I was thinking of heading home and looked around at my truck and realized it was filthy - so off to the car was I went. When I got there I noticed I was 2,000 miles over my oil change.....oops.....so I got that taken care of too. When you get your oil changed you get a free car wash so it worked out. As I stood there and watched my Armada go through the car wash I felt kind of guilty. I sent James a text that said "I'm such a lucky girl". I am so thankful that I have have so much and I am grateful for it too. But I did feel so guilty as I'm standing there - probably one of the youngest people in the car wash with such a nice vehicle. Both of the cars in front and behind mine in line were not so desirable cars, that older people were getting into. I feel proud at the same time that James and I work so hard for what we have. I said a prayer and thanked god for all my fortunes and my ability to get up and go to work everyday. I am lucky & blessed.

After I got home I started working on laundry and got my extremely pregnant butt in the pool. I forget I'm pregnant when I'm floating around. All the pressure on my back from the extra weight is gone, my hips don't seem to hurt as much, and I just feel so light. Its a nice break - and the sun beaming down on me makes me happy too. That was our Saturday. I think we went to bed early Saturday night.

French Braded Cori's hair for the first time!! So cute!

She said she had a lot of "bobo's" and needed bandaids....or stickers in this case! 

Sunday we didn't have plans but we had been invited to my aunts on Lake Conroe to hang out, eat, swim and have a fun family day. So we headed that way. I was real nervous with Cori around their pool & the lake (mostly the lake b/c I wouldn't be able to see her if she went under). Although there was a lot of people there watching her I still was scared. My aunt had a floaty that fit Cori pretty well and to our surprise she wasn't clinging on to anyone - in fact she kept saying "let me go - I wanna swim by myself!!" Boy did she do a good job! I was so proud of her! I have no doubt now that she will do so good in her swim lessons, that start next week!

The view from my aunt and uncles upper level deck! Awesome!

Sunday night we went with my brother and Bridget to go see the Hangover II. It was exactly the same movie as the first one with different events. It was still pretty funny though! I am looking forward to seeing Bridesmaids sometime this week or this weekend. I've heard its funny too!

Monday we had another relaxing chill day. James and I went grocery shopping and then came home and had my brother and Bridget over & our friend Dylan. We cooked some sausage and chicken on the grill and for the 3rd day in a row swam around and soaked up the sun! While @ walmart we got Cori some arm floaties and she loved them....  She is putting her face under water and swimming all over the pool on her own. She is so proud of herself. Its funny how in one weekend she can go from clinging on for dear life to begging us to let her go! The pool wears her butt out too!! speaking of butt - I just LOVE her little white booty tan line from her bathing suit! I think its the cutest white butt ever!

Its Tuesday and back to work! I hate when our awesome family weekends end. Every weekend should be a 3 day weekend!!! My shower is this Saturday and I am so excited. I don't feel very prepared for Levi to come so I'm hoping after the shower I'll feel a little better! 


  1. Great weekend, and good job, Cori, for being such a brave swimmer! Where is your shower going to be?

  2. Bridget is hosting my shower this time around. She's having it at her house!!
