A Shower of Love.

by katelin on January 26, 2015

Feelings, I have them all. ALL I TELL YOU. Between all your sweet comments on my last post and this weekend in general, my heart is just so full. And I’m basically on the constant flux of crying from happiness or crying from excitement and generally freaking out sweet mercy.

Friday: Knowing that we had another busy weekend ahead of us, we decided to take Friday night easy with dinner and the DVR. As boring as those nights sounds, they truly are some of the most fun. It was nice to relax and chat and watch some of our shows. Embrace the little moments that we probably won’t have for much longer.

Saturday: Baby shower day! Matt left early to help set up and I spent the morning lounging in my towel and doing my nails (a rough life I tell you). Before I knew it, my aunt picked me up and we arrived at my BFF Megan’s parent’s house to celebrate Baby Bannan with an oh-so-adorable Baby Shower.

Seriously, how I didn’t start crying at some point doing the day is beyond a miracle. There were so many family and friends from near and far, the decorations were adorable, the setup was just perfect and my goodness, just so much love for this kiddo.


There were so many fun games and we had a great time catching up with everyone. The food was delicious and I went to town on so much gluten free dessert (my people know me, ha). There were so many times I realized I should have taken a picture but didn’t because I was enjoying the moment so much (that and Megan’s boyfriend, JR, was taking a whole lot of pictures for everyone). And so many other moments that I was so grateful for all of Megan’s hard work and crazy to believe that my bridal shower/bachelorette was at the same place four and a half years ago.  Basically, I am incredibly grateful. And have the best friends. And the best family. And am on cloud nine of love. And so glad this guy is by my side.

Sunday: After waking up way too early for a Sunday, I spent the morning tackling all the unpacking and reorganizing of presents and goodies for the kiddo and put the finishing touches on the room. It’s about as done as I think it’s going to be. Matt and I hung out, watched TV, did a Target run and ultimately relaxed (well I kept doing little things because apparently I just don’t know how to sit still) the day away. By the time it was evening we headed up to Matt’s mom’s house for dinner. It was nice to catch up with her and my brother-in-law, his wife and our niece. So much baby play time and catch up time and some SAG watching and just, twas a lovely night all around.


And how was your weekend? Any baby things? Friend things? Lazy things?


happy monday!

Things that happened yesterday.

by katelin on January 21, 2015

Maternity photos! www.lannynguyen.com
We had an appointment with our doctor and looks like we may not be waiting long for Baby Bannan to arrive. I’m already dilated three centimeters. Which apparently is a lot. And more than some people are dilated when they actually are in labor. I’m just hoping this little one can stay cooking until at least Saturday night (I have my baby shower on Saturday, ha).

I bought a nursing bra with a cup size F. Which literally made me say, WHAT THE F?

After the morning appointment and running some errands I decided to take the afternoon easy. I literally worked in bed. And watched House of Cards.

I had a minor freak out over all of the things happening. And how I have absolutely no idea what my life will actually be like in a month. Which is strange. And weird. And crazy. And exciting.

I started a new book by Lianne Moriarty. I really enjoyed the last one I read by her and don’t know how I hadn’t read anything by her sooner. Time to get my reading in while I can.

We went to our last infant care class at the hospital. And yup, yesterday was just a whole lot of baby. Sweet mercy. This is so real. And happening so soon.


happy wednesday!

The Christmas Wish.

December 19, 2014

Tweet A year ago today I wrote this. I remember how defeated I was. But at the same time I was hopeful (weird, I know). I was in the holiday spirit, I had family and friends nearby, I had a husband to get me through it all. I still have all of that and this […]
