Lovely Sunday

We had such a wonderful day today! Except for the fact that I accidentally hit my "dismiss" button rather than my "snooze" button this morning, causing us to miss church we had a pretty close to perfect day : ) We started out the day by meeting with a good friend and his girlfriend at Starbucks to say goodbye before they move to Nashville. I mean, it's kinda hard to have a bad day when you start it with a white mocha from Starbucks, right!?

Although it was still a little on the chilly side, it was an absolutely beautiful, sunny day! To take advantage of the weather we headed out to a local botanical gardens to take some recent pictures of us so we have some while I am pregnant with Ella Grace. The picture taking didn't go quite as planned. It was a little too bright to get some good pictures with nice backgrounds but we did manage to snap a couple of "okay" shots. We will definitely head back out one day when its warm but still cloudy.

We had lunch at a yummy Greek place, then hit up Home Depot to buy the paint for EG's nursery! I finally decided on a color for her room. It has not been easy for me. I need it to be perfect, of course! We have tried lots of samples and even bought a whole gallon of paint I ended up not liking...oops...I'm pretty sure I'm gonna love this color though, and even if I don't I will learn to because I'm pretty sure Mikey would be trying to divorce me if I changed my mind again, ha!

We then made a trip to Babies R' Us to look around and then to Lowes (yes, in addtion to Home Depot...) and we finally found a rug for our living room! YAY! was a GREAT deal!!! Like the discount was more than the rug actually cost! Good job Mikey : ) So now we just need some type of coffee table or ottoman and the living room will be complete! Hopefully I can snap some pictures sometime this week of the living room.

So then we headed home, put down our new rug, started painting EG's nursery, I made some yummy nachos and we are now relaxing/blogging/homework/watching the Super Bowl! I feel like we got lots accomplished today and I got to spend some time with my bestest friend in the whole wide world! I hate to start another work week over already...ugh! I really do not like working 5 days a week! I really miss my 3 12-hour shifts per week, but that's okay. Day shift is working out well for me and eventually after I get back from maternity leave my schedule will change back! Yay! I guess I better wrap things up for now. I still have some laundry to do tonight. I will leave you with a few pictures we snapped today...

Hope you all have a fabulous Monday tomorrow!
