Summer here I come!

I will be returning to Decorah TOMORROW! I am so excited!!!! For one, going to/working at Luther has been the official "start" to my summer for too many years so folks, Vanessa is pumped. Gary and I will be heading down after I am done with work tomorrow and I will not return home until July 25. Woah.

Recap of a lovely weekend:
1. Friday dinner with Maura & Emily (two of my LSM friends from the cities). It was soooooooooo nice to finally get a chance to hang out with them. We went out to eat at Chianti Grill, which is an Italian restaurant where my co-worker's husband works. We all forgot to make a reservation so we ended up waiting for almost an hour but it was well worth it. I got the capellini with shrimp. YUM!!! and of course, we all splurged on dessert. Lava cake? Yes please. We ended up staying there for a total of 3 hours but it was such a great time to catch up before I leave. Emily is also pregnant so that was fun but miss Maura is not a baby person so we tried to keep our baby talk to a minimum. Tried :) Maura is also heading off to grad school in Arizona so THANK GOODNESS we were able to get together before I left. She leaves 2 or 3 days after I get back and I highly doubt I'll have the chance to say goodbye. Oh well :(

2. Shopping Saturday! Gary & I headed to some mall in the area for the sole purpose of me buying some clothes that will fit. Old Navy was a bust but then Target saved the day! I found some super cute stuff. And a swimsuit. I have wanted to go swimming since I got pregnant. I'm not so much craving foods, but I am definitely craving some fun in the water. We also went to Bridesmaids, which is totally inappropriate but hilarious! My Gilmore Girls Sookie was outrageous.

3. Productive Sunday. I went to work for about four hours to get some things done and out of the way. It felt so good going to work on Monday and not feeling bogged down. With having to finish up loose ends and pack up, those four hours were welllll worth it. I also did dishes, went grocery shopping, made goulash and read. Lovely Sunday.

4. Tuesday - 2nd doctor's appointment. Gary and I just went this afternoon. All is still well. Baby's heartbeat is still 150. Sadly, I don't have another appointment until Aug 9 since I'll be out of town. But I'll be getting an ultrasound that day! Get excited.

The end. I move tomorrow and I still need to clean the apartment and pack. Woe is me :)

Yay! So glad you guys will be close. I'd love to go swimming with you sometime!

And I said the exact same thing after watching Bridesmaids. So inappropriate, yet so hilarious!
