Weekend Highlights

We had such a fun weekend! My weekend starts on Friday really so I get three days off each week, which is much appreciated given my pregnancy exhaustion. :)

Thursday night we went to a huge rummage/consigment sale in Hillsboro that I got to shop at "early" because I am an expectant mother. Now, I didn't have high hopes. I am kind of picky about used items, I am not too good for them, I just want them to be in good shape. There were SOOOO many good things at this sale!!! I can't wait for it to come back in the Fall when she is born, then I will have a better idea of what we need. There were tons of brand new toys, barely used breastpumps, etc. We got Emersyn two pairs of adorable jeans, one still has the tags on and everything. We also got her 4 pairs of darling shoes, including her first pair of Nikes. All the shoes are in brand new condition. So 2 pairs of jeans and 4 pairs of shoes totalled up to be.....$20!!!! I was SO happy!!

Friday we went to OMSI in the morning, courtesy of free passes that my work provides (score). We went primarily to look at the baby exhibit that has actual embryo's and fetus's that have been preserved after they died of natural causes. It was incredible to see how big Emersyn is inside of me. As the babies got older in the exhibit, they too were incredible but sad to me because they were real, once living babies that didn't make it. I know everything happens for a reason though. Anyways, after OMSI we went to Babies'R'Us to register which was fun/tiring! Friday night we had some good friends over for dinner and grilled burgers marinated in Yoshidas, grilled pineapple, potato salad, and corn on the cob. It was a delicious dinner, so delicious in fact that we had that dinner literally for the entire weekend due to leftovers. We had my parents and brother over on Saturday night to help us eat leftovers too. That is one great thing about shopping at Costco. You have LOTS of leftovers.

Saturday during the day I got a pre-natal massage with my friend Amancia, who is being induced TONIGHT! It was our last day out before her little girl arrives. I also got a manicure. It was a pampering day, for sure.

Sunday afternoon I washed my car inside and out. Well, the carwash washed the outside, but I vacuumed out the inside and wiped it down. It looks brand new! I also got the house cleaned up and did some laundry. It was a peaceful Sunday afternoon. I hate that Brett has to work the weekends but it is temporary and allows for me to get things done too.

This week I am looking forward to entering my 20th week of pregnancy!! Also, visiting my friend and her baby girl tomorrow night. This is sure to be a great week!

Hope everyone is doing well!

Wow, I am jealous of your awesome weekend...good food, friends, a MASSAGE (the most envious about that!).... nice! I would love information about that rummage sale you went to in Hillsboro. Does it happen 2x a year? Maybe we can join you next time?

Have fun seeing your friend's baby! How exciting!!
