This past weekend was great, very productive! Okay, well maybe my “to do” list didn’t shrink, but I still got a lot done. I woke up early Saturday morning and went to water aerobics and really enjoyed the workout in the beautiful Arizona sunshine. Straight from the gym, I headed to a local maternity store that was having a great summer sale…everything in the store was 50% off! (How could I pass that up?) I brought my mom along to help me pick out clothes and get her honest opinion. The store wasn’t too crowded when we arrived, but it didn’t take long before all of the pregnant women looking for great deals arrived. Both my mom and I managed to gather armloads of clothes and headed to the dressing room. I ended up leaving with some pretty cute and very practical outfits. I don’t quite fit into all of them yet, but I am sure it won’t be too long. I came home and had a fashion show for Mike, who agreed that all of my purchases were good ones.
Mike and I went to the pool in the afternoon and then headed to a movie and dinner. I have to say, I am not a big “movie-goer” and I am not sure why. I like movies, but I don’t head to the theater all that often. Mike actually bribed me in a way. He said that if I’d go to the movies, then we could finally name our little baby girl. Of course it didn’t take me long to say, “I’d love to go to the movies!” So now we aren’t calling our little girl, baby anymore. We have officially named her Katherine, with a nickname of Kate. What a beautiful name! We had a few other names that we liked too, but we’ll save those for siblings. After the movie, we went to one of my favorite places for dinner and it was nice to relax and enjoy a great dinner with my husband.
Sunday morning I got up and did a few running around errands. I am heading this week to visit my reproductive endocrinologist and I always bring them a sweet dessert treat, so I needed to get stuff for that. Since we are having a little girl, I wanted to do something with pink. I decided to dip Oreos in white chocolate, yum!!! I actually did half in white chocolate with pink sprinkles and the other half in pink chocolate with white sprinkles. I finished them off in a cute jar tied with a big pink and white ribbon. I really appreciate all of the support and love we received from our doctor, so I enjoy doing little things like this to show our many thanks!
I’ll hit the 21-week mark this week and am looking forward to all that this week has in store!
