Best. Week. Ever.

My heart is absolutely running over with joy this week, I can't even begin to explain it. Thank you everyone for all your congratulatory messages- we are just so happy with the news of a healthy little boy. Jared and I are both pretty much still on a high from that Monday appointment. I can't tell you the amount of times we've said "boy" or "little man" this week- an obnoxious amount I'm sure ;) This week has just been so special for us and now I'm looking forward to a great weekend with my guy(s) as well!

Also this week, I'm reminded of how many sweet friends I have- near and far. Becky sent me an e-gift card to Zulily since she knows I've been chomping at the bit to buy some baby stuff. I am carefully stalking now and deciding what adorable stuff I wanna buy first. Allison and I also met up for dinner this week and it was SO good to catch up. I find myself still referring to her as my 'blog friend' but in reality she is definitely my real-life friend :) Throwback to our first time meeting, THREE years ago!

Jared and I have our last vacation as a twosome booked and we are now counting down the days. Initially we thought about going out west, but the idea of a BIG trip with lots of stops, flights, not to mention how pricey it was getting overwhelmed me a little. We ultimately decided that a relaxing week somewhere together would be more ideal so we're going back to our favorite beach on Hilton Head Island and including a day or two in Savannah, GA as well. A week away near the water sounds perfect!

There's a lot going on at work for both of us, that normally would be causing a lot more stress but the news of our little boy has carried us through this week. :) Now let's bring on a weekend of fun and maybeeee a start on this nursery! Happy Friday!

    And time at the beach is the perfect last trip before the baby! We went to Florida back in September for our anniversary, and it was super relaxing and perfect!

  19. Savannah is amazing! We went for vacation last July (it was so hot, not sure what I was thinking!) but it was amazing. There is a man named Eimir who plays trumpet in Forsyth Park who is the sweetest person in the worth to talk to. He and his wife own a photography business. Hope you all have the best time!
