weekend festivities

{First of all, sorry for all the 10385 grammar mistakes I had in my last, tiny post. That’s what happens when I post in the wee hours of the morning! I think I corrected most of them today when I read the post : / }

We had a nice weekend and I hope you all did too!

Unfortunately, Brent’s grandmother passed away this weekend :( She would have been 90 years old this fall and she lived a wonderful life. I really enjoyed getting to know her. She was so sweet! We are excited for her to meet Cohen :) I bet he loves all his grandparents so much.

Friday night, we ordered in dinner from our gift account and watched Brooklyn’s Finest. It kept my attention but it was just not my kind of movie. It was too violent for me. We also watched Dateline. We love Dateline. We love 20/20 and Primetime, too, but for some reason the 20/20 didn’t record :(

Saturday morning I went to my sister-in-law’s baby shower. She is expecting baby Paxton in October :) While I was at the shower, Brent hung out with his step-brother (husband of the momma-to-be). I left before she opened gifts, but I think she got some wonderful things.

How cute is this watermelon?!

These are from a local cupcake store. I didn’t know they had the mini ones!
The diaper cake was SO cute!

sweet hubs :)

On Saturday afternoon, we went to Penny’s baptism and after party. It was beautiful and lots of fun. I wish I would have snapped more pictures but I got a few good ones! The after party was a luau at the pool with super cute decor.

Miss Penny…
loved the center pieces…

Lucy was still carrying around one of these straws the next day :)

Sunday, we picked up our house for an open house. We then ran some errands and attended a coney eating contest. Yep, man versus food. Nope, hubby nor I participated. I couldn’t actually watch the men stuff coneys into their mouths for more than a second or two..ick. It was still a fun time!

The weekend always goes by a little too quickly.

Today, I had lunch with Jessica, which is always lovely.

If you follow me on twitter, you may have read about my excitement for our nieces and nephew to return from their trip. Brent and I saw them for a few seconds tonight, but they were sleepy and ready for/in bed. I tweeted that I needed another outing with the girls like this one. Those pictures always make me smile.

Packet #2 of insurance EOB’s arrived today. There were 62 of them in the package. HA.

I attempted to come up with something to cook for dinner without pots, pans, mixing bowls, etc. I only got as far as a salad. Then, I bought the ingredients and realized we didn’t have a knife. No kitchen = not so fun. I did pick up a rotisserie chicken from Target, which was delicious.

I go back to work two weeks from today. Scary.

I’m glad you all liked king Curtis. One of the funniest little kids!

I’m going to attempt to go to bed early tonight. We will see!

    I'm glad you had a good and busy weekend. I want to commend you on still going to those showers because I can imagine it's not easy. You do things on YOUR time, so I really do commend you for doing what you do and for blogging…you are simply inspiring.

  2. says

    I agree with Cristy – you are very inspiring to us! I would not think going to a shower is an easy thing but I think its great you are getting out. Thanks for letting us be part of your life!!

  3. says

    i agree with the two comments above!
    you are an inspiration and jesus just shines through you megan!

    i'm glad you had a busy weekend that was fun and relaxing!

    I saw posters for the eating contest. It looked like fun. I can't believe you go back to work in two weeks. We need to do lunch before then. (Not that your work has ever stopped us from lunching before.) :)

  5. says

    Wow — you should really be proud of yourself for having the strength to go to the shower because I can't imagine that it was easy to even think about going. You really are inspiring like the first comment said, and I just had to tell you that. Also, I'm dreading for you that you have to go back to work! I pray that it's an easy transition for you. Going back to something is never easy, regardless of why you left. I hope that all your fears of returning are washed away by the time you get there.

    First Off, You are such an inspiring person! You and your Hubby! It must be hard to attend events like this so soon. But, you can't stop life, right? You are so awesome and a strong woman! I look up to you! My eyes are filling up with tears, and I only .0001 of who you are.
    – Second, the watermelon looks adorable, along with the diaper cake. My mom is brillant at stuff like, and she has made both… but never a diaper cake with flowers. I'll have to show her.
    -The Centerpieces… What a fantastic job! WHoever came up with them, did a fantastic job!
    Have a great day Megan!

    So glad you had a nice weekend! Matt and I did too! Matt actually LET me go a lil crazy at TJ MAXX, Target, and one of our malls the last two weekends…
    So sorry for the loss of Brent's grandmother…continued prayers for you….

    AND…congrats on the soon to be addition to the family….I happen to LOVE the name PAXTON!!!! When we named our little one a year ago we had never heard of it as a first name…and everyone who asks "what's your baby's name" and we tell them they say "how unusual" or "love it …never heard of it before"……and now it's popping up EVERYWHERE!!!! Matt and I both have common names and I always had to put my last initial on my papers grwing up….we tried to help our boy out…may not be the case!!!!LOL

    My husband and I watch Dateline, 20/20, Primetime (Would would you do?) and record all of them! It's our favorite to watch when nothing else is on or have a marathon of them on a rainy day.

    I love the teal dress that you have on! Looks so cute!

  9. says

    your weekend looks fun. those girls are just darling!

    so sorry about the passing of brent's grandmother…i'll bet she's having so much fun rocking cohen :)

  10. says

    I loved the carved watermelon! I can't believe you go back in TWO WEEKS! I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers hoping you have a good first day of work.

  11. says

    Busy weekend girl! Glad you got out and had some fun. I hope you enjoyed it!

    I'm sure his grandmother is rocking Cohen right now and telling him all kinds of stories about you guys.. =) hugs

  12. says

    I'm so sorry to hear about Brent's grandmother. I miss mine everyday.

    I tried to watch a hot dog eating contest on tv once and it made me sick. I have such a weak stomach. Glad you had a good weekend!

  13. says

    Sorry to hear about Brent's Grandma. I'm sure she and Cohen had a joyful reunion beyond anything we can even imagine.

    The shower and baptism look amazing. Everyone is such talented party planners! I know it's prob. hard super hard for you guys to go to those, but it's really nice that you guys did go.

    I love the name Paxton, btw. It was on our "list" for the future — but I eliminated it b/c I thought it was too off-beat — but maybe it's not, after all.

  14. says

    So sorry about Brent's grandma. It's always comforting to know that when a loved one passes, you may miss them but they are being loved and lovin on the rest of your loved ones up in Heaven!

    You look so great! Sounds like you had an eventful weekend with family and friends!

  15. says

    I'm sorry to hear about Brent's grandmother, from what you've said about her in a few blog entries, she sounded like a wonderful person. We also enjoy Dateline and Primetime, all those shows. We DVR all of them :) I hope your open house went well, I know you need it to sell!

  16. says

    Thank you for being an inspiration to us all every day. You approach life with such grace – it's truly amazing. Glad you had an enjoyable weekend and may Brent's grandmother rest in peace with sweet Cohen.
