This last weekend we had amazing weather in Portland but we spent a lot of our time inside getting ready for little brother!

Thursday I spent some time nesting.
I organized this cupboard which was previously filled with a disorganized assortment of laundry and cleaning supplies that kind of just got thrown in there when we moved in almost a year ago. 
(wow has it really been that long?!)
 I couldn't handle it any longer and now I actually like looking in there.
I have a craft/cookbook shelf on top and a laundry/cleaning shelf on the bottom.
So nice!
 I figured out outfits to take to the hospital for the little man:
(call me boring but I like stripes and solids)
 and I made breakfast pizza for dinner:
(TJ's whole wheat crust topped with ricotta, breakfast sausage, 
yellow potatoes, shaved parm, eggs and green onions)
 Friday night Chris and I went to one of our favorite Thai restaraunts:
 and we finished off our date night with some fro yo:
 Saturday Lauren and I had planned on having a "grown up lady time" breakfast to start off a fun day of shopping and pedicures...only when we got to the Doug Fir all of my sweet friends were there!
Lauren and Abi had planned a surprise baby shower for me!
I had originally told everyone that I would feel weird having a second baby shower, but this was the perfect low-key-non-baby-baby shower. It felt more like a last hurrah over yummy food with all of my friends before little brother shows up.
(friends who live in pdx at least...I missed you out of town/state/country-ers!)

simple and sweet decor:
(I love me some succulents)
(ps: can you guess what his name is?!)
and more friends:
 after my shower Lauren and I had a perfectly girly/indulgent day, leaving no craving unfulfilled.
This included boba tea:
 clucks and fries and a chocolate malt at red robin:
(both of which we health concious of us. everything in moderation people.)
(also, I'm pretty sure I haven't eaten at RR since college)
 I also got a third one ever.
Can I even be considered a girl?
I was desperate since I can't see/reach my feet.
 Our day also included some shopping at H&M for a few post-maternity/nursing friendly things.
All in all it was an amazingly fun day and I felt so blessed by my sweet friends and also by my amazing husband who watched Bennett the entire day!

Sunday B was being super needy
(he totally knows his life is about to change big time)
so we spent the day having fun with him and giving him all the attention he could soak up.
The weather was amazing so we took a wagon ride to the park:
and we played in the back yard and I made some frozen yogurt drops
after church and putting B to bed, I finally got a chance to work on the
 non-cheesy baby book I'm making:
and a belly pic...could this be the last one?!

Happy Tuesday Friends!

    In the photo with Bennett on the little horse thing, is that Chris riding one too in the background? Whether it's him or someone else, I still found it pretty funny.
    Also, I'm glad I could be at your shower, it was so fun!

    Where did you find the cute baby clothes? I'm due in a few weeks with our first baby and have found it hard to find solid colors or just stripes. Thanks!
