Wonderful Weekend

Luckily several of my best friends are expecting as well, so we have a good time sharing tips, bargains, etc over email. Two weeks ago, I decided to go ahead and purchase our stroller because it was 20% off and no tax/shipping. I felt a little silly since the baby won't be here for another 6 months, but it was the one I wanted and on how could I refuse! It came in last week and I immediately put it together, but since I don't have a baby to put in it yet, I decided my other "babies" would have to test it out for me! They didn't want to stay in there long!

On a different note, Whitney went to the lake to meet a plumber and I stayed in Bham. It was nice to get some things done around the house and enjoy some girl time on Saturday. Jennifer, Tate and I met for Breakfast at Bogue's (yummy!) and then enjoyed the day. We made and decorated cookies. Tate was so funny because I think she got more sprinkles on herself than the cookies. Later that afternoon we went to a store in Irondale, Stray Cats, and I found so many things I would love in my house! The store is really neat and they use a lot of reclaimed wood and old things to make "new" things. It was very cool. Thanks Jennifer for introducing me! I will definitely be going back!

One thing I often take forgranted living in Birmingham is the numerous great state parks so close. Sunday afternoon, Whitney, pups, and I all loaded up and headed to Tannehill State Park (near Bessemer). Whitney loves to fly fish and heard you could do it there. Well, he didn't have much luck Sunday, but we will definitely go back. It is an iron works facility used during the Civil War and had so many neat old buildings. Good walking trails and camping sites.

I'm Back!

I know it has been a while and I don't have that much to post! We survived the holidays, but sadly I didn't get very many pictures. Here are a couple of Lilly opening her Christmas presents and wanting her stocking. Aphid wasn't too sure about all the action and sat more in the corner...I don't think he liked Christmas very much! But she sure does love the tennis ball. So here are a couple pics from the park.
