Happy 19 weeks to me! Feeling happy, in love, and overall blessed this week. I left Friday morning for Austin, TX for a bachelorette weekend with college girlfriends, returning early Monday morning. Check out my Instagram for photos from the weekend. It was so much fun! First of all, Austin is amazing. Although I’ve been once before, it was only to film for a night and we never got a chance to fully explore the city. I would highly recommend checking it out if you’re in need of a vacation. What’s also great about a weekend away? It makes you appreciate what you’re coming home to. I missed my family so much. I hope everyone had a great long weekend and enjoyed their Memorial Day! Ours was spent picking up our crib from Pottery Barn Kids!!, taking apart the crib because it wouldn’t fit through the nursery door, going to zero BBQs and lounging around the house all day instead. Alright, we had In & Out. Whoops!

The crib I’d been eyeing went on sale a couple months ago, and then off a month later. Meh! I suppose I had it coming since I made the decision to wait on purchasing. I got a call on Sunday from PB Kids reminding me of the memorial day sale and the fact that the crib I am looking at (they know) is now on back order and I wouldn’t receive it until the beginning of October. Huh? Who has that kind of patience? I went ahead and purchased the crib and dresser without hesitation. After I received the confirmation email, I thought… I wonder if I could buy their floor model instead? That way… I get it tomorrow vs. 4 months from now. We went in to the Kierland store at exactly 10am on Monday, and it was still there! Lucky! Although it has a couple scratches on it, it was $200 cheaper than ordering new online. Sold! The pregnancy feels that much more real now that these type of purchases are being made! Stay tuned, will be posting which crib I went with tomorrow morning.
