Weekend Recap

This was supposed to be a lazy weekend, but it turned out to be anything but! It also turned out to be pretty wonderful. :)

It included working at Maiden South, and utilizing our full length mirror to get some updated baby bump pics. Oh, and Easter goodies! I don’t get an Easter basket anymore, but if I did, these would be my picks.


    Whoa! Where’d that thing come from?  I want to hear your guesses: boy or girl?  I got a new one last week (from two separate people!): I’m carrying 100% all out front (I don’t look pregnant from behind), which is supposed to mean it’s a girl. What are your tried and true wives’ tales? I need to test them all and do a blog post documenting the guesses ASAP.

Saturday night my very dear, very sweet friend Mary invited me to dinner and a show… The Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra, to be precise! She was lucky enough to have her brother’s tickets to use, and I gladly accepted her offer to join her! We dined at Z. Bhardi’s in Tallahassee first, and we both ordered the seafood lasagna. It was AMAZING, and we both cleaned those plates!  

The Symphony was unreal! It was my first time attending, and I enjoyed it more than I ever could have anticipated. I’m so grateful to have gotten the chance to go! My favorite was basically the second half: Clouds by Debussy and Bolero by Ravel (which was the grand finale). This baby loved it too apparently – it was moving the entire time music was playing! Which got me thinking… Before this babe is even born, it will have heard (but not seen) JJ Grey and Mofro, the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra, and Jason Isbell, as well as hearing Elizabeth Gilbert speak. I hope it’s taking notes in there!


Sunday morning we let Juin out, and then came back a little while later to see this precious sight:

So sweet I can’t even stand it.

Sunday after Church we went to the annual Allee Trout Pond Draining. Each Fall Dr. Allee stocks a pond with rainbow trout, and each Spring he drains the pond and the fish must be caught. Down the chute they go to the lower pond, and the folks and kids line up with nets to catch them. It’s a ton of fun to watch!

Then we came home and worked on taxes. Weh! #grownupproblems Trying to wrap up as many of those sort of things as we can before le Bebe makes his or her appearance… 7 or so short, short weeks to go!

Happy Holy Week, friends!  This is my favorite time of year!

    Boy vs girl. Hair. Do you have more or less than pre pregnancy? Shave more or less? Thicker or thinner hair? More hair is boy. Less hair is girl. That’s my theory and I’m sticking with it!

    Our friend who works at the hospital carried all out front with her son, and I had way more hair while pregnant with Katie. Funny how everyone has a different take on it! I’m still mourning the loss of all that hair. It was the only time in my life I’ve had good hair. :)

    I’m also carrying all out front and it’s a girl :) Currently for me, “pregnancy glow” is not a real thing, and they say girls steal your beauty. Because you look SO fabulous (seriously, get outta here), my guess is boy!

      Adrienne! I’m so happy for you. :) :) for background info, Bobbi Brown foundation is amazing and first and second trimester I had to stock up on neutrogena acne facial care, so don’t judge me 100% on these third tri pics. ;) but I still am probably totally having a boy!
