My mom, dad, and I drove to my sister Tracy's house in Virginia on Thursday. We got to watch my nephew Ben's baseball game which was super fun, aside from the bitter cold! Chilling out with my niece Madeline was pretty fun too. It's been a while. I gave her a french manicure so her nails would match mine for the shower.
We had dinner Friday evening at a yummy Mexican restaurant in Long Island City with my sister Kerry, her husband Nick, and her friend Cindy. It was a nice evening.
The shower was Saturday and it was fun. I made the favors and they were a hit! I found the idea on Pinterest and adapted it in my own way. I love the way they turned out and I'd be lying if I said I did it all by myself, Brad helped!!
It was nice seeing my Aunt Barbara and my Aunt Ellen, and some of my sisters friends I have known for a very long time. It was also nice being back in New York, even if it was for only a nano second... we left to return to Virginia Saturday evening.
Quite a whirlwind trip, but worth it! I can't wait to meet my new niece or nephew in December! I am voting the baby is born on December 11, mine and my sister's birthday!
