Here are some of the things they gave me:
After a lovely drive home with my dad (we passed time by reading from one of my new, favorite, and dictionary-like books, 100 Words to make you Sound Smart), Gerald and I had pizza and wings with my parents while watching the Pens game.
The next day, my mom and I put all of the finishing touches on the nursery, very efficiently if I might add! I love how it looks, and she has been soooo helpful!
Gerald was then off on Sunday where we had brunch at his parents and began errand-running! We didn't get too much accomplished, but it was nice getting back into the every-day life. We did get some Pittsburgh gear for the baby at my new favorite store, Once Upon A Child.
Also, what would a Sunday be without some homemade placemats!? We found these at Target for only a buck!

The funny thing is that I finished my entire bunny before he even finished one ear.
Because of the unknown with the baby, we decided to have a date night on Monday, just in case it would be our last one for a while. We went to PF Changs (my first time!) I broke my "no ice cream during pregnancy" rule for the very first time at desert, but it was worth it! Below is the banana/coconut concoction of deliciousness!
Later in the week, my mom and I took back some stuff back and did a little "possible last minute shopping." This is my favorite purchase of the day!
I'm dying to find one in my size!!!
Gerald got a bonus at work for some great customer service reviews, so the following Monday ended up being a date night too (the last for a while???). We went to Bravo and decided to walk around for a bit afterward.
The next day I had a doctor's appointment where the doctor said he assumed I would not make it to my next appointment, this Monday, April 7. So, we have been playing quite the waiting game!!
In case anyone forgot, Wednesday was my half birthday! I had a great day shopping and going to lunch with my mom and grandma. The evening ended with Gerald and I getting Frozen Yogurts and going to one of my very favorite stores, Half Priced Books. I started my new book and think it's going to be great. It's called, Half the Sky.
While many have been asking about the rest I've been getting, I have been pretty busy, and I must say I'm grateful for that! Yesterday was probably the first day I didn't have an agenda, and it drove me a little crazy!! Today is a rainy day where I should be enjoying the end of relaxation and peace and quiet for a while, but I'm struggling!! I don't know how to fill my day with mundane tasks, but I must say I have been doing lots of reading, which I love, and even some crafty things like this:
As I've mentioned several times, I love schedules! This is an old picture frame. I cut out scrap book paper and wrote the days of the week and a "To-Do" page and put it behind the glass. With a dry erase marker, I write what's going on for the week; love it!
My first due date has come and gone (April 3), but the doctor did say she predicted more like 4/6-4/12, so who knows! I'm eagerly awaiting the birth of this little girl, and I'm happy to have blogging to occupy some of my time!
