I'm in love....
Meet Emma. She belongs to Kevin's sister & brother-in-law. Born just a couple days later than expected but she graced the world on the 4th of July. Like her soon-to-be, Auntie Heather, she wanted a holiday birthday :) Mine is New Year's Day for the record. lol She's just precious & I cannot wait to meet her. I suspect that'll happen early August when she & Mommy come to go wedding dress shopping with me & her Granny (who's loving her big-time right now!)
Speaking of wedding, I just got word from my groom-to-be that my Save the Dates are complete. It makes my heart go pitter patter (almost as much as looking at baby pics!) I will get my addresses together & get labels printed.
We had a great weekend doing alot of little things.
Friday had dinner at Hacienda, shopped, drove the lakeshore & went to the boat (I was $30 richer when we left.)
Saturday went for a run, shopped at Sam's Club, watched a movie, had dinner at BW-3 & sat on my porch watching neighbors set off fireworks with beverages in hand (wine for me & Michelob Ultra for Kevin.)
Sunday we went to the final service in the church's current sanctuary & got a glimpse of the new worship center. It was very overwhelming to see friend's come to the stage with just a piece of cardboard sharing their story. Some lived with abuse, neglect, addiction, regret, loss, etc. It was a tearful reminder that I said my final good-bye to my Mom in that very place as well. My friend's husband's poster said this "Opiate addiction left me for dead" and the flipside read this "but I was saved again by God's grace." God is good.
We spent a couple hours driving around the area because it was so nice. We did that as kids & it was so nice to just veg out taking in the sights.
I made us a big dinner last night...grilled steaks, oven potatoes & corn on the cob. It was intended for Saturday but it was raining. Dessert was our fave lowfat poundcake, FF vanilla ice cream, fresh strawberries & a blob (yes, blob) of lite cool whip.
It was a low-key weekend & honestly one of the nicest I could have asked for :)
I hope you all enjoyed your weekend & shared in some blessings!
