Our 2nd Anniversary and Nesting!

Chris and I celebrated our 2nd anniversary on Tuesday, June 17th. It is really amazing how time flies!! We had a date night at Satterfield's in Cahaba Heights. For those of you who haven't been, it's wonderful! I feel so fortunate to be married to him and I am so excited to see him as a dad!! He really just makes me laugh all the time. God is teaching us both so much and it's just really fun to see how much we've grown in two years. He says I'm not half as sensitive as I used to be and I think he's more patient with me! We are trying to have at least one date night a week now until Wells comes because the nights we are at home, Chris knows I'll have a project for him! He thinks I'm completely in the nesting phase. We went to a birthing class today and when we returned I had two projects in mind. Unfortunately I couldn't find Chris anywhere after we walked in the door. Then a few minutes later I see Chris and Vedder peeking behind a corner upstairs hiding from me! For those of you who know Chris well, I know you're laughing. This is very typical! Once again, I just died laughing. He was super sweet and helped me with my projects! Anyways, I just wanted to fill you all in on how lucky I feel to be married to him and how we are going to really take advantage of these last five weeks of being just the two of us! (And I hope I don't come up with too many more projects in the meantime! : )

A Shower to Remember!! : )

Well, today was more than I can explain! 14 of my friends threw me a friends and family shower at my mom's house. It was just perfect in every way! It was really overwhelming at how many amazing friends God has put in my life. I am truly blessed! The shower was full of my favorite things: ice cream sundaes, lemonade, and of course best friends!! They all came from all different walks of my life and made the day incredible. We received not only tons of love, but tons of presents!! Wells is one lucky boy!! I'll be sure to tell him everyday! We received playmats, tons of clothes, diapers, bottles, monitors, diaper genies, homemade gifts that were adorable, blankets, burp cloths, and much much more. When Chris came to help load up the car he was completely in awe. My sister joked that my baby shower was bigger than her wedding!! ha! The truth is that I love my friends to death and each and every person there meant the world to me. So thank you all so much for coming, helping, serving, and making the day one to never forget. I love you all so much! And there are many of you who couldn't make it, but know that you were missed and I appreciate you and all you do as well! What a great day! : )
