TGIF!!! What's been going on in our world.

I haven't blogged all week.  I'm sorry : (  Here's what has been going on in our world -

I am loving this weather.  It's not too humid yet, and it's warm enough (but not too warm) to sit on a patio.  It's a dream come true!

We hired a painter to paint our house!  I have wanted this house painted since before I moved in, and we finally decided on a painter and colors!  We are going neutral, but the walls now are eggshell white, which has turned kind of grey over the years.  Let's just say this house wasn't taken the best care of when Hubby and his friends lived there.  It's only 6 years old, but it needs some love and TLC.  We are getting it painted in three weeks.

We are having our last get together at our house before Jaxson arrives this Saturday.  My parents are coming, and I am so very excited!!  I love when they come to visit.  Bandit is even getting his hair done Saturday morning for the party - haha!  Any good party recipes?  We are going to keep it easy and grill hot dogs, my Daddy is bringing his amazing deer sausage, I'm making cupcakes (of course!), and then chips and dip...a veggie tray...and I'm not sure what else.  I'm looking forward to seeing everyone!

Our nursery is done!  Thanks to my Edaddy and my Mom's sweet coworkers, we got our last piece of furniture!  So, thanks to our last shower and our party being this weekend, we got everything put in it's place and put away.  I'll post pics this weekend.

We also worked in the yard, and cleaned out our embarrassing flower bed.  It had gotten bad.  It took a whole day, but we cranked the country music up, let Bandit hang out with us in the front yard, and got it done!  We even mulched and everything.

I'm ready to have this baby!  I'm big and getting a little sore.  I can't wait to meet him!  It's almost here!!!!  Just a little over a month to go!

We had crawfish for the first time this week!  We went to Willie's and spent a couple of hours on the patio.  That was the first time that I have really, really wanted a beer.  There's just something about crawfish, a patio, and perfect weather that = a cold beer.  haha!

What have you been up to?

Your party sounds fun! Any excuse for a party sounds like a good time to me! :) I love making this mexican chicken tortilla dish as a dip, and buy the tostitos scoop chips. It's always a hit at any party I make it for!

I can't believe how soon your baby will be here! You're going to have him while I'm away on our honeymoon! I can't wait to see what he looks like and hear all about everything! So exciting! And hurry and post pictures of the nursery! I want to see! :)
