Our Wonderful Life

Raise your hand if you took no photos this weekend!!! *My hand is officially raised for those wondering* It was a glorious (yet snow-filled) few days away from the office and just what I needed. If only I were off yesterday like so many other offices downtown. Oh, well. Yesterday was better than your average Monday because after work I headed straight for a prenatal massage and it was glorious. One day when I'm wealthy I need to have a standing appointment with a local masseuse each month. 

Jared and his dad painted our boy's room Friday and it looks absolutely fantastic! We chose two different shades of blue and it turned out so perfect. We'll be steam cleaning our carpet this week and THEN we'll finally set the crib up. The giant box has been staring at me, practically begging us to put it together so this week we definitely will at some point. Then, let the decorating begin!

Our Valentine's weekend was low-key and I loved every second of it. We shopped for awhile on Saturday, for nothing in particular; we just let the day take us wherever we pleased. Neither of us had really made any plans for Sunday so we did our usual church/lunch and headed back toward home, since we knew there was quite a bit of snow coming our way. At the last-minute we decided to stop in at CVS and each spend $10 on each other on a gift. It was fun, funny and creative- truly the only gift I needed was spending time together. Although it was quite hilarious that we each bought each other some sea-salt & caramel Ghirardelli's for part of the gift ;)

That afternoon, we laid in our son's freshly painted, unfurnished room and just talked for who knows how long as the snow came down outside. We discussed everything imaginable and it was in that afternoon I truly just felt reminded how blessed/lucky/whatever you want to call it we are. Our life may be simple to some, but I couldn't imagine it any other way. Life is wonderful♥

And this concludes my blogger faux pas of a post with no actual photos.

  1. Aww love this. $10 at CVS sounds hilarious. And wasn't the snow falling peaceful? I may or may not have taken a 3 hour nap so I missed most of it.

  2. As much as going 100mph is fun slowing down and enjoying life together is just as important! Cant wait to see everything come together for your little one! I would be itching to get it decorated too!

  13. The one thing I wish I would have done while pregnant was get a massage! I had planned on it and then the only great local place was booked up. It's on my list for the next babe haha. I'm glad you got the chance to relax!
