A GREAT Weekend!

This weekend we traveled home to Cincinnati for not one but two fabulous showers hosted by my aunt and sister and girlfriends, Jaime & Amy! It was so nice to see all of our friends and family and have them share in the excitement of our impending arrival:

Needless to say everyone was beyond generous and we are incredibly grateful for it all. We feel so lucky to be surrounded by such amazing people. 

*Of all the unnecessary and ridiculous things my OCD self packed for our trip, the one (extremely important) item I forgot was my camera. So, until I get some real photos these iphone pics will have to suffice! 

It's hard to imagine that the next time we see everyone there will be a baby in tow!

A HUGE thank you to our shower hostesses, who put so much time and effort into making the day special for us- every single detail was just perfect! And to our parents, for all that they've done for us and baby Tanner, as well as our sweet angel dog, Cooper, who I feel certain will make an excellent big brother :)

Who knew blogging would take so much energy/motivation? Kidding!

Kind of.

Here are some things that have been occupying my time:


Jeff Lewis's new show, Interior Therapy


Making an effort to maintain some (pathetic) level of fitness 

Then cancelling out all of the exercise by eating several bowls of this


or the occasional frosty

On top of all that I've been reading lots of baby stuff, complaining to Mark, and searching for adorable outfits for my baby boy (I'm really busy, I know). Also, I watched a yoga DVD tonight. That's right- no performing poses and whatnot. I have to say the whole thing was pretty slow. Not sure this will be able to hold my attention. However, I'll most likely be giving it a try because I can tell my gym days are numbered.

While I've had a pretty easy pregnancy thus far, I am definitely starting to slow down.

29 weeks

 I had to make a few maternity purchases this past weekend because apparently, Charleston is skipping spring and going straight into summer. Some solid finds at Target which I'd showcase but their website crashes my comp every time I try to access it.

Overall, I'm still feeling really good! I cannot believe we only have 2 months to go!

I am so so excited to be headed home in a few weeks to celebrate the arrival of baby McCall with our friends and family!

In LOVE with this invite

Can't wait to see of my gf's

Why do I only want Chick Fil A on Sundays? Obsessed with their lemonade.

I'm already annoyed with these fools.
(but will continue to watch)

How unbelievably pretentious is Heather?

I'm sure you all have heard by now that Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minillo are expecting a baby. While I think it's great and am happy for them, I can't help but wish it were Jessica? I'm still nostalgic for the Newlyweds days.

Everything is coming together in the baby's room and I'm really happy with how it all looks so far.
