Baby Shower and Gal's Weekend

Last weekend I helped throw a baby shower for my friend Brittany. She was my first college roommate and she's having her first baby, a boy! I'm excited, her little guy will be friends with Baby V, they will only be about 3 months apart. Here are the gals, the same group of ladies who helped with C's shower last year around this time. 

Right after the shower, we took off for girl's Christmas weekend. It was fun! We did the usual: ate a lot of great food, played cards and charades, exchanged Christmas gifts, and laughed a lot! See more photos of gals weekend HERE)

I set up the camera to take pictures automatically and it fell over...

Better...but I hate looking at pictures of myself. I'm growing my hair out and it is at such an awkward length.

Sidenote: I had a weird allergic reaction to my favorite shampoo (your body does weird things after having a baby) and my head and ears are all red and swollen. Wonderful...especially combined with the lack of sleep AND (sidenote #2)  my car was broken into while we were in church on Thanksgiving weekend. Shattered window and missing chocolate brown Longchamp, with wallet, nursing cover, lots of diapers and a handful of loose goldfish. Thanks a lot, criminal. I know without a doubt you are an Obama supporter and that makes me even more furious. In a year or so he will be taking what belongs to me and giving it to you anyway, just be patient.

On our last night, we drove up to the top of a hill to watch the sunset and drink a "sundowner"-it was a beautiful night. (Baby Sandwich!!) Overall a great girls weekend, I'm lucky to have such lovely friends.
