Weekend Update

Well hello lovely friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. As always, like I say every Monday... the weekend went by WAY too fast! Happy Monday to you all, because if you're like me, you need a little happy oomph on Mondays.

First off, I wanted to say THANK YOU for the sweet comments about Jon and I having a precious baby girl. We are thrilled! and we are so glad to finally know the gender... of course I CANNOT wait to go shopping!!

Here's a quick weekend recap:

Friday we had pictures taken to announce the gender and she also took some of just Jon and me so we could make our yearly Christmas photo card. If you didn't see Friday's post, here is one of the pictures she took for us, which of course, is my favorite one.


I'll post more pictures from the photo shoot tomorrow. I can't wait to share them with you. She did such an amazing job! I wish I could just hire her to walk around and take pictures of our life here in Germany, so I can remember every special moment of living overseas.
Later Friday, we got to spend the evening with my most favorite little man, Evans! His parents got to have a lovely date night and we got to snuggle with this cutie all night.

Jon made Evans giggle and smile all night.
He is going to be such a wonderful father!

He was such a good baby and I LOVE him to pieces!

Saturday was our errand day, as EVERYTHING in Germany is closed on Sundays. We made a trip to Ikea and grabbed a couple of much needed things for the house. Then ran a couple more errands before we headed back to the house, where we didn't move from the couch for the rest of the day. It was definitely a perfect day to sit on the couch; the weather was so icky.

Sunday we woke up to the most BEAUTIFUL weather. I'm telling you guys, we don't get a lot of these days in Germany so when we do, you better believe we're outside trying to soak up every ounce of the loveliness that we can. We went hiking in one of our favorite areas. Here are some pictures from our adventure.

I LOVE all of the trees and leaves on the ground.

I love these trees and the sky looked so beautiful blue.
Like I said friends, this is a rare occasion to see the sky like this.
I think Baby B loved the hike as well!

Here's to a lovely Monday and a lovelier week to you all!
