{My last Monday}

Happy Monday!
This weekend was good but seemed busy!
Friday Justin was out helping his buddy Darren with new house stuff so Cruz and I hung out, I put all the hardware back onto the dresser and then we cozied up on bed with popcorn and watched The Never Ending Story. 
I had seen it numerous times as a kid but hardly remembered it. It is so strange! And a little creepy but still a classic.
Saturday morning after a raining family walk, I met up with Leigh as she invited me to go check out a huge kids clothes and toy sale at the community center in her neighborhood with her. It was great - so busy and tons of stuff. I lucked out (with Leigh's help!) and got 2 sleep sacs, 1 sleep sac swaddle, a cute mexx coat, 3 newborn onesies and the cutest pair of baby Toms all for $40. Thanks again Leigh.
Afterwards I got groceries, came home and quickly vacuumed & washed the floors before heading off to Emerson's 3rd "Wizard of Oz" birthday party.
Crystal did a great job with the details..
And Emerson was the CUTEST Dorothy you ever did see!! She had a blast.
 {My MIL made her outfits and this will be her Halloween costume too. :)}
Then we had to come home and quickly get ready for Blake and Karen to come for dinner. Justin took Cruz for walk while I finished cleaning and made apple crisp.
We had a great night catching up with B&K as it had been a while since we had seen them.

Sunday Justin was out of the house bright and early to go help Darren start building his garage. Cruz and I slept in a little and then enjoy a beautiful sunny walk and breakfast on the deck. I then went through 3 boxes of clothes Crystal lent me of Emerson's, tried to work on the gallery wall in the nursery, did a yoga dvd and worked on thank you cards. I met up with Jolie in the afternoon to watch Jeff's hockey team that he coaches play. We enjoyed our first Pumpkin spice Latte of the season too!
[It was funny to see Jeff on the bench decked out in a suit and not on the ice! But I know he'll be an awesome coach and I am proud of him for taking this on]
Then Justin and I met up back at home, took Cruz for a walk and then headed to his mom's place for a belated birthday dinner for both Crystal and Justin. Can't go wrong with chicken casserole and family time!
Emerson is just a riot. She is seriously the funniest kid so we had a great time playing and laughing. Nixon too was a happy camper and was full of smiles and giggles. Love them.
When we got home we went through all the gifts from the lake shower so Justin could see all her goodies and then we tried to hang shelves I bought but they are a really crappy design so they are not being used. Sad but it's ok - we'll get different ones.
The end!

My favorite part of the baby showers was to wrap them back up and then watch Eric's reaction as he opened them at home :) It was fun for me to go back through and really focus on each item as well!
