Awaiting the arrival of Baby Krew

My younger sister, Ali, is headed into the home stretch with her pregnancy - only a few weeks left.  So last Saturday we celebrated her upcoming arrival of Krew Braden with a baby shower. 


Keeping with the decor of the nursery, we threw her a sporting event themed shower, complete with concession-style food - corn dogs, nachos and cheese, boiled peanuts, wings, popcorn, and soda.  YUM.





Ali, with the party throwers (correct term?) - Sal Gal, me, and Aunt Sara 

Ali and her best friend, Brooke



We asked all the guests to sign this football as a keepsake.  One day Krew will be able to look back and see all of his fans that came to cheer him on.





Kate and Hamp spent the weekend at their Grammy's, so M to the Izz-A and I took advantage of the free time and went out to dinner with a group of our best friends on Saturday night.  I forgot the camera at home.  On purpose.



I'm loving this warm, almost hot, weather.  Kate, Hamp, and I have been on bike/stroller rides almost everyday for the past week or so.  We love it.  And Kate would ride all over this little town if I'd let her.  She never wants to turn around and always throws in a quick recommendation of riding all the way 'up town' to Subway or McD's for lunch.  Not to mention, we can't ever just hop on the bikes and go, she's got to 'work' on hers for a little while before we leave.  Every time.  It's hilarious.




So we give her the time she needs to work on her wheels while Hamp and I take shameless SP's.  Ain't no thang.




I love the view - my two loves.  Wait, make that three loves.  I just noticed my DC made it into the pic.

The only thing missin' from that picture is M to the Izz-A - then it would have been perfect.  Maybe he could join me at home, be a SAHD, and we could live on love and frozen Girl Scout cookies. 


And here's a pic of my girl and me from today.  Why is this pic so important?  Because it's the first knot dress I made her. 
And, well, I need to document it just in case it decides to come apart at the seams before the day's over.  I still get nervous about that.  Just kiddin'.  Kinda.




In other random news:

-- Hamp turns 9 months old this week. 

-- Shawntel on last night's Bachelor scared me. 

-- Kate asked to take Hamp to school in a box with her this morning as her show-n-tell.

-- For a second or three I actually considered it.
