I have had the most wonderful, amazing weekend!  This is just a quick little bonjour post, and I’ll share more in a day or so!

I had quite a full house this weekend, and boy, hosting is exhausting!  We all had fun though.  We also had a blast at Pete and Lindsey’s wedding!  They are such a wonderful and fun couple, and I’m so glad Pete has brought Lindsey into our little “2A” family.  It was a beautiful night!  Look at the name of our table:

DSC05857 During the cocktail hour, my friend Becca asked me to hold her beer!  I felt kind of sketchy.  Oh, Becca moved to London for work today for 3 months, crazy!  So jealous, she is going to have such a blast.  I’m really disappointed I can’t go visit 😦

DSC05858 No beer for me, but I settled on an Arnold Palmer.  They had a cute little table with lemonade and iced tea in beautiful glass jars.  I love drinking out of a mason jar!

DSC05861 Somehow I didn’t get a picture with the bride and groom, but I did get this silly one with my friends.  From left to right it’s Eric, Becca, Pete and I.  Becca and I were freshman roommates, and so were Eric and Pete, and they lived across the hall from us.  We have all stayed close ever since.  We lived on Shapiro 2A, so Eric and I are representing!

Finally, this afternoon I had the most wonderful baby shower!  I have some of the most incredible family and friends anyone could imagine.  Solomon and I are so loved, and this baby is already so loved.  Plus, he is going to be incredibly stylish!

I have some pics on my camera, but there are many more, so so once my friends get them posted, I’ll share a lot!  Something I did have to share (OK, brag about!) is a gift from my parents.  They wanted to get Solomon and I something for US.  I present you with…JAMES DEAN, our Rebel!

DSC05915 We can’t wait to learn how to use this rebel, with a wonderful cause!

Don’t I look shocked to have opened this?!?!  It looks like I may break down in tears!

DSC05909 So HUGE thank you to Marlene for hosting, and my mom, Robin and Deborah for helping to make my shower phenomenal.  I hope to post some pictures in the next day or so, but I think that will be a long post!  It had a rubber ducky theme (of course), and everything was truly perfect!

Also, thank you to all of my friends and family who love this little boy, and made it THE MOST WONDERFUL day ever!

Finally, because this little short post just keeps going, thank you for your insights into my post from Friday and letting fate take charge with your life.  Sometimes, life takes you where you don’t expect it, and that’s OK!  Embrace the unknown 🙂

How was your weekend?

    I just got a Rebel last week! Now if I can only figure out how to harness all of it’s awesomeness…

    At least you weren’t in a college bar! I have to go to a college bar pregnant in a couple weeks. What fun that will be. The looks I get should entertain me enough for the night though. LOL

    I think a nice camera is the PERFECT baby shower gift. People need to be able to register for those. After all, you want quality shots of the special little one.

    What a wonderful wedding and shower! How funny that your table was called Jersey Shore. I love when people get creative!
    You are looking so great!

    Yay for your Rebel! You are the cutest preggers woman ever 🙂 And I have to admit that I indulged in a glass of wine for the first time over the weekend! Doc said one every now and again is a-ok. Don’t judge 😉
