I was able to get Mack down for a nap at 10:30 am (as predictable when he's up at 7 am) and Jamie ran out to get some bagels for brunch. I wanted to make sure I had eaten a bit before going to the bridal shower, because I didn't know what time food would be served, or if there would be enough food for me to eat (diet appoved) so I didn't want to go hungry. There is a bagel place around the corner from us, and they have these really awesome whole wheat flax seed bagels. Yum!
After brunch I started to get ready for the bridal shower. I even applied some make-up today.
And got to wear my adorable new shoes. (Which were the best deal ever). I have the best of luck finding shoes at really good prices. They are just too cute. I love them.
The bridal shower started at 1:30 pm, and my mother, sister & I were one of the firsts to arrive. (Above left to right: myself, my grandmother, my mother, and my sister).
The bride-to-be opening up our gift, the Log Cabin Blanket.
I had a good time at the bridal shower today. I indulged and had a piece of strawberry cheesecake. Oh, was it absolutely devine! Heavenly!! Homemade strawberry cheesecake, how can you go wrong?
So, probably due to the cheesecake (and eating all afternoon - there were TONS of healthy snacks there today!) I was not hungry for supper when I got home close to 6pm. (It was late!)
This evening after feeding the boys dinner, I played with them in the playroom. Sean wanted to play "cars". He's obsessed with anything that has wheels right now (cars, trains, etc...) It's too cute. Totally a boy thing.
Somehow tonight, Sean managed to suck me into reading him 5 books before bed. Our usual routine consists of 3 (short) books. But tonight, he just managed to convince me to read him an extra 2! The little bugger!
This evening I cleaned up my office a bit,and now I can start to see my desk again. I don't even understand how my desk becomes a mess so fast, but it does. (And I have 2 desks in my office so you can imagine how messy both of them are!)
This evening Jamie and I watched Survivor from a few weeks ago (we're a few episodes behind). Eh, we'll catch up. We also watched Big Bang Theory, while I knit.
As of today, I decided I am no longer buying sean sunglasses. He destroys them. He's terrible! He breaks everything. I need for him to understand that you cannot just go and break the arm off, and he's just going to get a new pair, like that. It doesn't work that way. And there is no way to fix them. (Or worth it). Bah, it's too bad.
