iPhone weeks 5 & 6: until next yearHere I am again, trying to catch up on my weekly posts. I've promised myself now that the holidays and craziness of December are over I'll keep up better, but only time will tell. I have a baby due in less than 20 days! So here is what you've missed...
Christmas marked our last year as a family of 2 and another year closer to 30 (Nick turned 29!). I worked the night shift on Christmas Eve, so our celebration began when I arrived home around 8am. We drank mimosas (only 1 for me), opened our gifts from Santa and each other, and finished the morning with an incredible breakfast courtesy of my sweet husband. We spent the afternoon napping and headed to a friend's house for Christmas dinner. They prepared the most amazing meal for us, showered Logan with gifts, and even provided a cake to celebrate Nick's birthday. I didn't have to work the day after Christmas, so I propped my feet up and enjoyed my first day of relaxation with nothing to do in a long time. The perfect ending to a perfect Christmas.
I arrived home on New Year's Eve after a long day at work to find a beautiful bouquet of roses from Nick. It was exactly what I needed! He also treated me to an incredible dinner of filet mignon, green beans, baked macaroni, and french bread. We watched the ball drop in our pajamas from the comfort of our bed, and were both asleep by 12:30am. I have a feeling New Years Eve won't be the same for many more years to come.
On Sunday we drove to Chattanooga to ring in the new year with my family and celebrate our 5th (and final!) baby shower for Logan. We had a great time but after 5 bathroom stops on our way back (a 2.5 hr trip), I was ready to be back home. My parents and nieces followed us back to Nashville, where we exchanged Christmas gifts and enjoyed a french toast breakfast Monday morning before they headed back to NC. It was difficult to see the holidays come to an end, but it was nice to know that we will see them all again in just a few short weeks! Goodbyes are always easier when they're temporary.
