Brent, Kyle, Angie, and I went to the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia- a huge indoor marketplace with lots of food vendors. So, we ate our way through the day and posed for pictures with this bronze pig since Angie and I share a love for the creatures :-)
Alex's chosen theme (which I loved!) was Hip Hop Hooray! She knows I also love bunnies. She really outdid herself with awesome handmade decorations, fun games (and that's coming from someone who doesn't usually enjoy them!), and tasty treats.
|Alex made three kinds of cupcakes- all very good!|
|I made cardamom and orange star and bunny cookies.|
|One of the games and some bunny garland! I've saved it for the baby's corner of our room. #9 is me!|
|Everyone was so incredibly generous. Baby Hill will be very well-dressed and accessorized, to say the least.|
|My former field ed. supervisor and church friends Robyn and her daughters were able to join us!|
|Brent and Fry making the most of their baby-free time.|
Somewhat last minute, I went to Michigan to visit my parents and little brother Brett. We were really missing each other. Plus, who can say no to a few days of pampering, relaxation, and quality family time? Not me! I was spoiled with a massage and pedicure, we explored the new Grand Rapids downtown market, and got to look through my old baby clothes! It was a nice trip and way too short. But, I didn't want to be away from Brent and Fry for too long at this point.
|So maybe he's not so little anymore...|
Last Sunday night, I attended an annual Oscars Party thrown by friends at our apartment complex. Even though I only saw TWO nominated films (one foreign and one a documentary available on Netflix no less), it was a really good time and a good excuse to get all dolled up one last time!
|Beautiful Alex guessed every single award correctly (seriously, she didn't even miss one!!) and won the grand prize of the evening!|
|Me and Alex, at our most glamorous.|
As you can see, Brent and I have been trying to make the most of these last few childless weeks and the energy that I've had. We are so excited for Small Fry to get here, but are also very thankful to have some time to spend together and with those we love before everything changes!
