Jon's week while I was away

While I was gone Jon had a fun packed week! Jon's Brother Tim came to visit! They played golf, went hiking and watched lots of movies! Also they grilled out a lot and my husband cooked! Also I think all the guys did laundry at my house! This was funny to me! But here are a few pictures from the hiking trip!

Baby Shower

So July 11th I flew home to go see all my family! WOO HOO!! I had missed the south oh so much! It was nice to see green the closer that I got to Atlanta! After landing we went to the mall in Douglasville to shop a little! (My favorite thing to do is to shop with Mom!) And then we had lunch at Johnny Rockets! Yum! Then on to Babies'R'Us! I love that store! I do not think I can describe how much I LOVE THIS STORE! We got lots of fun things! My Mom finished by several things to add to my gift from Lolli and Pop! And well I just am addicted and can not help myself! Yes I said it! But they had a new swaddler that was aqua with chocolate trim that Tyler had to have and well a few other items as well! Then time to go to Bama and we stopped in to see my Nana! She was so excited!
Sunday I woke up late, go figure I was still functioning on two hours behind! But I did make it to church and then lunch with the in-laws! It is so great seeing everyone at church and then spending quality time with the in-laws! It was nice to see family! Sunday when I got back to Mom and Dads house I got presents! :) My Mom gave me my Diaper Bag and all kinds of adorable outfits! I can not wait for my little guy to get here and put him in all of them! I was so sad that I could not show all of them to Jon but I took pictures and sent them to him! Wow I didn't realize how much I was going to miss him!
Monday morning my Mimi came and picked me up and let me go to Dillards and pick out some adorable things for my sweet little boy and then we had lunch at one of my favorite places in town, China Luck! It was so yummy and I stuffed myself! Bad thing was all the salt plus the humidity I was swollen like a blowfish that needed to be popped! I literally thought I was going to pop! After Mom got home we hit the town trying to finish getting things for the shower!

Tuesday I had lunch with one great friend and her adorable son! He was such a entertainment! It was so great to see her and spend some time together! Jamie and her Mom gave Tyler some adorable sleepers and a cute little pull toy! After lunch and Jamie left my Moms I placed my self in the swimming pool! Heaven on Earth! I enjoyed it so much! It took all the swelling out of my feet and hands! Loved it!

Wednesday I had lunch with Jon's parents and sisters! We had mexican and it was wonderful! Such a good time visiting with them. Then when I got home I went with my parents to Atlanta to pick up my sister and Ansleigh at the airport! Yeah! It was so good to see them!

Thursday morning was going to be a great day! Today was the day for the haircut! I was so excited to get to see Jan as well. So we cut 11 inches off! Yes I said 11 inches I feel like a new woman and a huge weight was gone! Long thick hair in the middle of the desert pregnant is no fun! I am so happy with it! That afternoon we took Ansleigh back for her first haircut! She was so cute but was no sure about this haircut thing! But she is so adorable now! We also went to go visit Mrs. Eva! She was so excited to see Ansleigh for the very first time!

Friday was a busy, yet fun day! We got up and went to the church to set up for my shower and get everything ready! It looked so great! Then at lunch time my Mom's office gave me a baby shower! It was so much fun! We had Mata's pizza (YUMMM) and yummy cake! I really appreciate them thinking of us at this special time! We took Ansleigh home for a nap and then that night we went to eat at Red Lobster Friday! It is our favorite!

Saturday we had my shower and it was fantastic! I really appreciate everyones efforts to make it such a special day! Baby Tyler got so much great stuff! We feel really blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives! After the shower we cleaned up and headed home! I was told I had to put my feet up and rest and after a while I got up and went through all the gifts! Man I didn't even remember all that I had gotten! It was fun and I got to take pictures for Jon so that he could see everything. Later that night we went to Martins to exchange some sizes and then to Target to take back some doubles. Mom and Carrie took me through Target telling me all the stuff I needed that I had not got yet. I had no clue everything that was in my cart! LOL. It was a blur of "you will need these" and "okay" and when I checked out all I knew was that I had gotten stuff that I needed! It was fun though.
Sunday morning I got up and went to church and then had lunch with the St. John's. It was great and I got to visit some with Ricky as well. I miss getting to see him some when we lived so close to each other. After getting home we all played in the pool with Ansleigh! She loves the pool! She is so cute!

Monday we got up and got ready and after Ansleigh's nap we went to Birmingham. We went to Babies'R Us to go finish getting my big items. I got so much stuff it was great! I felt so much better knowing that we had everything almost that we needed!
Tuesday was a sad day! We got up early to take Carrie and Ansleigh to the airport! So sad to see them go! Buggy did not want to leave her Pop! She loves him and her Lolli! Then we tried to waste time before my flight! Man we got bored! We roamed Target TWICE! But the good thing about target was I found my baby monitor for less than half price because they are changing the color of my monitor! Crazy, but good for us! I also found some other things marked cheap! Yeah for baby! And at Ross we found Tyler a Braves onsie! He is going to be so cute in it! Mommy is going to have to take him to game and send pics to daddy! Later that day I finally got to go to the airport and get on my plane! I totally decided that flying by yourself pregnant is STINKY! I arrived in Phoenix to my sweet husband all dressed up in a suit! (SO HANDSOME) He had cleaned the car all up and we got home he had cleaned the house, done the dishes, and washed the clothes! WOW! It was great!

So to sum this up a great week but I missed my hubby lots! I do really want to Thank all our friends a family for the great showers!

Las Vegas, Baby!

Vegas, What can I say? It is what everyone says it is! We had a blast! It is amazing place to go and visit and to say that you have visited there!

First I am going to start by saying please do not let anything I say offend anyone! It is my personal opinions!!!!!

Thursday night we flew in late at night! My first flight pregnant and it was a little scary! Thank goodness it was super easy and my blood pressure stayed perfect! And yes I flew with my blood pressure monitor just in case I needed it! I was so nervous! But praise the Lord everything went perfect and it was a easy flight! When we got to Vegas we got our luggage and got transportation to our hotel! We had reservations at Caesars Palace, which by the way was fantastic! We checked in and then went to check out our room. The room was a fantastic as we could have imagined! I loved the huge tub!! After wondering around a little we decided to go to bed!

Friday morning we slept in a little and then went to brunch at one of the buffets at Caesars. It was yummy and I was starving! Then we went shopping and exploring in Caesar's! We bought Tyler a adorable pair of pants at Gap, Jon a new suit from Banana Republic, and some golf stuff at the Nike store! After shopping we went back to our rooms to get ready for dinner and our show. We walked from Caesars to MGM! What was I thinking??? But when we got there we looked around MGM and then went and had dinner at Emeril Legasse's Cajun Seafood Restaurant. It was so yummy. After dinner we had show tickets for KA by Cirque du Soleil. The show was amazing I would advise it to anyone going to Vegas as a must see! After the show we took a cab back to Caesars.

Saturday morning we got up and got ready and decided to walk around Vegas after we had brunch at Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill. We went to see the Venetian, the Mirage, and a few others around there. Lots of walking but a great time! We were all tired and needed to get ready for dinner and show that night so back to our rooms we went! Jon took a nap and I took one in the huge jacuzzi tub! Then we had dinner at Joe's seafood, Prime Steakhouse, and Stone Crabs! Wow is all I can say! It was so yummy! After Dinner we went to see the Jeff Dunham Show. We all laughed so hard we cried! It was great! After that we realized we had missed all the fireworks but went to see the Fountains at the Bellagio at night time! And they were amazing as usual! Love the music with the lights and the water! It was great!

Sunday was going to be a sad day because Kevins wife had to leave but we started the day out at the Pool! One the pools were amazing and two first time in the pool pregant equals amazing! After Pool we had lunch at Seredipity! The frozen hot chocolate was so yummy! Then Kevin's wife had to go to the airport and we took a cab to the Bass Pro Shop! Yes I did say that! My dear husband loves that store. Well acutally not the one in Vegas because it was stinky but all the others! After that we went back and did some more exploring and then had dinner at Boa Steakhouse. I think everyone should eat there once! It was the best restaurant I have ever eaten at! YUM!
Monday we got up and finish packing up and then we checked out and left our luggage with conceirge so that we could spend the day roaming until our flight later that night! What a great trip! We enjoyed every moment! I think my feet thought I was being cruel to them but other wise it was a wonderful trip!
