This n' That

The weather this week is finally starting to feel like spring!  Yesterday it was 65 degrees and sunny!  What better to do than take the kids to the zoo!  We headed out with friends Sarah and Jane and we had a blast!  I think the girls had more fun chasing each other around the exhibits than looking at what was inside!  That's ok, we have a pass so it doesn't matter to us!
 Elise and Jane on the Footsie Wootsie's!
 Elise trying her hardest to pet the goose. She was unsuccessful.
Elise was having fun throwing sticks into the pond.  Mom (in all her 35 week glory!) decided to show her how it's done.  Here is the belly picture for those of you asking!
I love this picture of my sweet girl!  My baby for just a little bit longer!
I am officially 35 weeks today!  I can't believe how fast this pregnancy has gone!  I only hope that the next few weeks will feel that way too!  I went to my doctor yesterday and everything is going well and measuring just as it should.  I had him check to see if baby was in the right position and sure enough, he is head down.  Good boy- now just stay that way!
With only 5 weeks left to prepare I also finished some art work to hang in the nursery!  I asked friends on facebook if I should do trucks, animals or sailboats on the canvases and the majority voted for sailboats so that is what I did!  I was really pleased with how they turned out and it was a lot of fun to make them too!  I saw similar nautical canvas art on etsy for about $80 so I felt really good that I only spend $15 to do this whole project!
I spent the morning hammering and getting them hung above the crib.  Looks like everything is ready for baby boy to be here.  I hope he stays in a few more weeks so we don't have to deal with any NICU time, but after 37 weeks we are happy to welcome him at any time!
We had a fun weekend and amazingly had things to do each night.  Friday we had our friend Courtney over for dinner. She and Zack are good study buddies and she invited me to be in her book club too!  She was so sweet and even brought some beautiful tulips over as a thank you!  I love seeing them bloom on my kitchen table.  They make spring feel like it's really here! We had copy cat Cafe Rio salads that were very yummy and watched Despicable Me with Elise until it was her bed time.
Saturday our friend/landlord had a "Juicy Lucy" party at his house.  A Juicy Lucy is a HUGE burger that has cheese inside the meat all melted and gooey when you bite it.  It's delicious!  It was fun to hang out with some of our other friends and neighbors and enjoy a yummy meal that I didn't have to prepare!  It was a fun weekend!

I LOVE the little sailboat and anchor. Great job. Also, Elsie is so darling. (I know I say that all the time, but whatever.) Happy 35 weeks!

Nice work. I'm assuming you're naming him something with a J?
