I just realized that my last post was post #900 on this here blog. Oops. It probably should have been something more monumental than whatever it was I rambled on about last...oh well. Maybe #1000 will be something special.
I had an awesome weekend in Augusta! My sister's baby shower was the main reason we went home, but the obvious fringe benefit was that we got to spend the whole weekend with her and the rest of my family (and the beloved niece Carley, of course!). It's been a long time since we've had any sort of 'sisters weekend,' so I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
The shower was beautiful and fabulous. And several sweet ladies even brought presents for ME!! I definitely didn't see that coming, so their thoughtfulness was an incredibly happy surprise.
I got my hair did.
This is how it looks when your hairdresser is your 31 weeks pregnant sister with swollen cankles and her current salon is your parents' den. I used it as an opportunity to cuddle with in utero Laney.
We did lots of shopping, lots of planning, lots of pedicures (well, one each), lots of educating our mom about what kinds of hair bows are acceptable and not acceptable, lots of lounging in the hot tub (with no heat, because duh), and it was absolutely awesome.
And then we got back home to Athens and discovered that our AC had quit working. Womp womp. Yes, that would be the same AC that we JUST BOUGHT in August of 2012, thanks for asking. Wouldn't you think that a $5,000 HVAC unit should last more than two years? Me too. So I'm not angry at all about that. We unpacked our bags, started some laundry, sweated to death, and repacked our bags to spend the night at Matt's parents' house. I have approximately zero interest in sleeping in an un-air conditioned house when it was still 94 degrees outside at 8 p.m. UGH. So anyway. Hopefully that is getting fixed today.
I haven't taken any pictures of my new hair yet, but it's shorter, redder, and super fun!
Annnnd now I'm running late and I've got to go get my Monday work day started. Hope your week is off to a great (and air conditioned...) start!!
