Friday we stayed in but I was pretty busy washing and folding all the baby clothes and organizing the nursery. Finally I can see the floor of the nursery! I also made these No Bake Energy Balls that Leigh recommended here. After a shaky start (I messed up the melting of the peanut butter and honey!), they turned out really well!! I like that you can use whatever you have on hand to put in them, so mine were a crazy mishmash of things. I am definitely making more of them though!
I pushed a little too hard though and my feet were so swollen by the end of the night. Thankfully hubby offered to give me a nice foot rub so they felt much better!
Saturday was another baby prep day. My mom, sis, niece and I went out for lunch which was so nice!! My niece insisted that I sit beside her- she likes to feel her cousin kick! Afterwards we went to Shoppers Drug Mart to stock up on all the baby and postpartum essentials. There are so many options out there- it was quite overwhelming so I am glad I had my mom and sis there to help me out!
I had a bachelorette party to go to in the evening for my good friend A. We started at Parker House for dinner- which I highly recommend if you are looking for a fancy place for dinner.
|All the pretty ladies!|
Afterwards we kicked it up a notch and went to Vicious Circle for drinks and dancing!! Of course I did neither of those in my condition but I had lots of fun visiting with friends and feeling especially old (and awkward) in a bar full of 18-21 year olds!! I didn't stay too late as it was quite loud and I am not sure how good that is for the baby! Plus I was just plain tired!

|Lap dance time!|
It was a great night and I am so glad I was able to "party" with the girls one last time before the baby comes! Can't wait for the wedding next weekend!
Sunday morning I slept in. I met up with our Half Marathon running group for brunch to celebrate the completion of their final long run (20K) before they race in 2 weeks. It was awesome to hang out with everyone and feel part of the group even though I haven't run in what feels like forever!! Plus we got to hang out with our instructor's cute little baby Emily!
I made the dumb mistake of going to Walmart on a Sunday afternoon. Never again!! What a zoo! I ended up being there for 2 hours and was a grumpy mess when I got home! Hubby insisted that I lay down for a foot rub and of course I fell asleep for about an hour!! I felt much better after that!
I spent the rest of the evening doing more laundry and chores around the house. Still working on getting rid of the nasty burned chicken smell!
I start training my replacement's temporary replacement (long story- involves a broken wrist and 6-8 weeks of disability) at work this week. Only two more weeks of work!!!! Yippee!!
