Highlights of the Week

Happppy Friday!!! I hope everyone indulged in lots of chips and queso yesterday to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. I'm still hoping post-pregnancy that my love for mexican food will return... it felt very odd to avoid it yesterday (and for the past 8ish months!) This week had a couple fun highlights I wanted to jot down before I bust outta' this office and into the weekend ahead:

Highlight #1: Getting lunch with this beautiful gal who I like to refer to as my cousin-in-law. I feel so fortunate that many of my friends are a result of marrying Jared! :) This girl has a heart of gold. Calena and I had a much overdue dinner date to catch up on life and talk about everything from jobs to babies to church to how we're going to celebrate her 30th birthday this summer. We don't schedule time together nearly enough but I'm glad we did it before I have a baby! 

Highlight #2: Attending a luncheon with a group of women from work. A couple times a year I generally get invited to these types of things so it's always a welcome couple of hours out of the office. I attended the "Go Red for Women" luncheon with the American Heart Association. Heather Mitts (a three time Olympic gold medalist) was the speaker and as always it was a good time!

Highlight #3: Finding out that this same group of women at work are throwing me a small baby shower in a couple of weeks! I honestly didn't expect that, but it's very sweet of them to want to celebrate us and our little boy. I'm hoping for a few more Bengals outfits as gifts- hint hint ;)

Highlight #4: Tonight! Jared and I are going to be in a suite for our first (and possibly only!) Reds game of the season. I've been looking forward to this night for weeks. Free food, great seats and a fireworks show post-game! It will be a super fun date night out for us and I really just can't wait. Reds games have always been one of my favorite things for us to do together, all the way back to our early dating days.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend celebrating their moms, sisters, aunts, grandmas and other special women in their lives!

  4. So one of my biggest fears is that I won't like Mexican food when my husband and I decide to start a family! Chips and salsa is one of my main food groups and I don't know what I'd do without it! It sounds like you had a great week, and that's so awesome that the women from your office are throwing you a shower! I hope you have a blast in the suite this weekend too!

  14. Mexican food was a no-go for me, too! I couldn't even be around it...but my love for it came RIGHT back. I actually ate it in the hospital before I went home. So there is hope!
