My First Baby Shower

Thank you to Heather, Vanessa, Natalie and Amanda for hosting my college friend shower plus a few extra Nashville friends. They had everything decorated so cute and the food was delicious. They, of course, did way too much for me. Our friendships go back to our freshman year in college and now we all live in Nashville. I am so thankful that God brought all of these girls into my life!
I had to post this picture for a "shout out" to Jaren since she couldn't drive all the way from Oklahoma...I don't know why not! Thanks J for these cozy covers, I know they will come in handy this winter. I got several monogrammed burped clothes and bibs which I absolutely love. Reed and Braden are going to have a lot of matching stuff and some really cute burp clothes. Here is the belly shot for those of you who keep asking for it. This is me at almost 31 weeks. So far, these boys have stayed mostly in my belly but I am still waiting for the rest of my body to expand:-) I still don't reallly feel that pregnant besides a belly that causes me to not be able to see my toes and the constant fighting these boys already do in my stomach! They had these cute craft projects at the shower. I mshould have taken some pics of the final products. Everyone either painted or sewed on shirts, onesies or bibs...they are so cute!
Thanks Nat for having the shower at your house. I cannot wait to find out what she is having. I am really hoping that it will be a boy so that our boys can grow up together.
Martha Lynn, Heather and Sara
Mom and I. She was the only "adult" of the group but she has known all these girls for a long time.

Labor Day Weekend

This past weekend we went with some friends to Centerhill lake. Martha Lynn's parents have a cabin up there which was a bit crowded with 10 people but made for a lot of fun. The lake was really not that crowded for being a holiday weekend.
The guys threw football while the girls layed out in the water. The hard thing about being pregnant at the lake is not being able to tube, ski or ride the jet ski really fast!
Saturday night we all went back out on the boat. This is Ryan and I headed for the dock.
This was the girls right before we went out on the lake. You can definitely see my belly now!
Josh, a.k.a "Juice", and Lindsay Story
Josh and Lori Willeford
Josh and Mandi. Can you tell that there are way too many Josh's in this group...that is why they all have nicknames.
Josh Story was the entertainment on the boat. I told him that his shirt must have come from the gay weekend at Pensacola Beach on Memorial Day weekend!
It's bad that I don't even have a picture of Martha Lynn and Zach who were responsible for letting us go to their cabin! Thanks though!
