I would hashtag this entire weekend as #blessed.

I feel like I’ve been drugged, my heart is so happy lately.

(Or maybe it’s the cookie dough iced coffee that’s talking. I guess that’s kind of like a drug.)

Anyway, I had another one of those weekends that makes me so happy I feel like I’m walking on air for days afterwards.

I’ll keep this short and sweet, but I simply can’t write another post today without sharing some…

Weekend Highlights:

//  On Friday evening I was exhausted and Tim and I stayed in to eat Thai food and watch Orange is the New Black. I was so tired that I didn’t even mind that we didn’t finish the entire season and chose to go to bed instead. It was the perfect restful night.

//  On Saturday morning my brother graduated from grad school (hip, hip, hooray!) so my family watched him walk across the stage and we also went out for brunch, because brunch is pretty much a required event when celebrating anything.

//  After brunch on Saturday, Tim told me that we had to pickup a surprise. I had no idea what he was talking about, but his surprises usually don’t turn out very well so I was a bit afraid of what he had in mind. It turns out my surprise was one of my bestest of best friends! Brittany, who moved to Portland earlier this year, flew into Chicago for the weekend to hang out with me. Could my heart have been happier or more shocked to see her?! Nope. 

//  And then the friends kept on coming in! We had our last shower for Bumpy on Saturday evening and about 20 of my closest girlfriends showed up, which I was totally not expecting. My lady friends came in from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Indiana, Oregon, Missouri, and of course the Chicago area to celebrate Bumpy, Tim, and I! How lucky am I to have such amazing friendships with such generous ladies?! I cannot even express how much it means to me that my friends took the time to and effort to celebrate my growing family, and I was truly humbled by the turn out. 

//  On Sunday we brunched again, because one can never brunch too often. Then we took a mini-nap and celebrated Father’s Day with Tim’s extended family in the suburbs. I always love chatting to Tim’s relatives and it was simply a very pleasant way to spend the day.

//  We finished our weekend by watching the rest of Season 2 of OITNB. I should have known better than to suggest we ‘just watch one episode’ at 10pm. One episode easily turned into 4 episodes, as it always done. I was satisfied with the season and the ending and now I’m anxiously waiting for Season 3 to be released!

//  Also, our nursery is finally done and that means I have one less thing on my to-do list, which feels pretty awesome. Now I’m just sitting here, waiting for Bumpy to decide to make an appearance! We really don’t have anything major left to do, which is super comforting. Although, it’s seriously the strangest feeling to know that his/her arrival is happening at some point in the not-so-distant future. 

Happiness overload, I tell ya! I cannot emphasize enough that despite me feeling a bit uncomfortable every once in a while, I’ve been feeling so overwhelmed with love and support throughout this pregnancy, and it’s truly been the happiest 9 months of my life (and counting)! There’s not a day that goes by that Tim and I don’t comment on, and thank God for, all of the love we’ve experienced so far.

I hope you had a restful/eventful/blessed weekend!
