A lot can happen in a week...

On Friday, I was blessed to have a baby shower thrown for me at school.  Baby Brody was spoiled rotten with all the wonderful, thoughtful gifts.  He got some adorable clothes, and other practical and useful items.  I am lucky to have such wonderful women (and men) on my campus.  After the fun of the baby shower coming to a close, Gabe and I headed off to Addison to meet some good friends from Tech that we do not see often enough!  We had a great time with girls on one side of the table chatting and gossiping, while the boys were on the other side of the table reminising about a spring break trip they all took together many years ago!  Thanks to the 3 who drove up from Houston!  We had a great time with everyone and we enjoyed eating yummy fajitas from Blue Goose!
Saturday was B-U-S-Y!  I got up and went to meet some girls to plan a baby shower for my friend Amber.  We got lots accomplished, and I think it is going to turn out adorable.  Then, I ran home for a quick minute to pick up my hubby and off we go to my school for a bit.  After an hour, we headed over to Bella's 3rd birthday party over in Arlington.  Bella is mine and Gabe's adorable niece.  Unfortunately Chris had the flu so he couldn't even enjoy his daughters birthday party.  He had to stay outside since there were so many kids around, and me and my preggo belly!  I cannot believe how grownup little miss Bella is.  She will be a great cousin to Brody.  And she is hilarious...she told me that she had Brody in her tummy too.  How cute is that?  After we left the party, Gabe and I headed over to Babies R Us and Target to get a few items we needed that were still necessary to have before our new family member arrives.  Thankfully we had some giftcards to spend.  
Sunday was almost as busy as Saturday, but we were home most of the day.  All of Brody's 0-3 month clothes are officially washed and ready to go.  We have our bags packed, the car seat installed and moved the cradle upstairs.  After our mattress comes is delivered, we can finish setting up his bed.  
Yesterday, after work I met up with some of my friends from Fossil, who I miss dearly.  It was our last dinner before I become a mommy.  How weird is that?  I always enjoy their company and love to hear the latest gossip from Fossil.  While I was gabbing and eating delicious Pei Wei, Gabe went and took some photos on the progress of the house! His pictures were really dark since it was so late, but luckily our wonderful sales manager had gone over today to see the progress and sent us some pictures that were taken in the daylight.  She is so thoughtful to do that since she knows we are a little farther away and is sometimes tricky to get out there.  This picture is the one that Dana took today.  

Please do not be jealous of all of the sexy men working on my house, ladies!  ;)

Baby Update-  No news.  No progress to share, which is alright by me considering our magic day is the 14th!  We are hoping for the 14th so I am able to maximize my time off from school.  No other reason than that.  Yesterday, while at my weekly appointment, we asked our doctor about how big she thinks our little guys might measure.  Her comment back was, "I am sure you will have a good size baby."  Her guess was 8.5 lbs.  Bigger than I am hoping for!  haha.  We love our doctor and know we are in good hands when she is around.
