Then Saturday, I went for my best friends bachelorette day in Columbia. We had so much fun! We started the day off with a lingerie shower and brunch then headed to Cola to paint pottery, go to dinner at Za's pizza then ended the night with Eat, Pray, Love. It was such a nice day to be with the girls and just have good ole quality "girl-time!" I did miss my boo-boo, but mommy-me-time is needed every once in a while!! I have the best friends a girl could ask for! All of us are finally at a point where we are getting married and having babies so it is funny to see how our conversations and "girl talk" has evolved over the past few years from dating and break ups and sorority chats to marriage, babies, house decor...haha! I love it!
Sunday, we didn't go to Church because Ella Jae took a 2.5 hr nap and I hated to wake her because she has been recovering from a sinus infection. Adam and I were all ready but just let her sleep. So Ad picked us up some Dunkin and he watched sports while I surfed the net for E some cute Halloween outfits :) It was really nice and relaxing. Sundays seemed kind of rushed sometimes because it's like...get up, get breakfast, get E fed and washed and dressed, get us dressed, and off to Church we go-usually running behind. So this Sunday morning was relaxing compared to most! After E got up about 11:40, we went to Grandma's to eat lunch! Then we cam back to the house to get ready and let E nap before her 6 month photo shoot with Crissy Callan :) Crissy is really great and takes the cutest pics of our family. She has become like family and we really appreciate her! E did so good during the photo shoot!! I was really surprised. Fortunately, it wasn't 900 degrees outside, maybe 80's so it was some what of a relief! I cannot wait to see the pictures that Crissy captured! I know I will be pleasantly surprised, as always!!
Now it is back to the weekly grind...

What a precious gift from God you are! We love you so much that we wanted to declare in from of our closest family and friends that we will raise you in a God honoring home and teach you all the ways to live out a Godly life. We pray that God will lead us to be the parents for you that He created us to be and He will help us lead by example. We love you more than anything and want to be the best possible parents we can be for you in every way. This is our prayer for your sweet life: "I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return. May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ—for this will bring much glory and praise to God." -Philipians 1:9-11

Sunday was Mom's birthday! Happy Birthday, Mom!! I am super blessed with a wonderful MIL who is a great friend, shopping partner, advice giver, shoulder to cry, babysitter and my partner in 'dumb and dumber plumbing' (inside joke)! I went to Church early for the Baby Dedication meeting. We didn't make it back to Church because E was sleeping and she hasn't been sleeping well :( So we let her sleep then we went to Grandma's for lunch which was super great because Tiff, Chris and the boys came :) Then we went to Mom and Dad's for her bday party. We had pizza and icecream cake. It was a great day! Everyone kind of snuck out early so it was a nice restful day!!
Looking forward to another week to quickly pass us by so our little family can have our weekend back to ourselves :)
