Back in action

I’ve had an extremely busy and stressful last couple of weeks. Unfortunately the blog gets neglected. Now that I’m back I thought I should recap the craziness.

My parents, Maxfield Grandparents and Dustin came to town on 29th, they are here till the 10th helping us work on the house. Nicholas took two weeks off to be home to get work done on the house. I was able to spend the weekend with them over the 3 day memorial weekend. While the guys worked my mom, grandma and I got organized for Baines. We went to Ikea and bought a dresser and put her clothes away. It was really strange to see all her little things folded and in their place. We also had a BBQ at Nicholas parents on Memorial Day. It was really fun to spend time with everyone all together.

On the 2nd I had to leave for my last Dallas Market and last work trip. It was really a hard one since I’m 31 weeks pregnant. I was so exhausted the whole time and the time change didn’t help. Every night I just wanted to go back to the hotel room and eat dinner in bed then sleep. That is exactly what I did. The show was okay but it was nice to see my stores for the last time, well some of them…. I heard from about 15 different people “Wow you are really big, are you sure your only 31 weeks?” “Are you having twins” “you look like your ready to give birth now”. Some times people need to learn to shut their mouths!

I flew home from Dallas Saturday night and was so shocked by all the improvements on the house. The guys have been working really hard. They got the cement done which means we now have a pouch!!!

This is my porch for drinking Mint julep drinking on hot summer days!!!!

Sunday was a really fun day too! It was our baby shower and we got completely spoiled. I couldn’t be more grateful for our awesome family and friends. It was a nice way to end such a busy week. My mother-in-law, Diane and Sister-in-law, Andrea did such an amazing job. they really went overboard and the event was lovely!!!

My Mother-in-law made this cake. So cute!


  1. So awesome. I wish I was there to celebrate.

  2. The house is looking so good. Nicolas is so handy!

    You looked so beautiful at your shower, I can't remember if I told you!
