Weekend Wrap-up!

Goodness, weekends are exhausting! We spent Friday relaxing at home. Carl got home early because he drove to Alabama and our house is closer than his office at the end of the day. It was a gorgeous night so we decided to take Evie to eat at Mellow Mushroom in Downtown Franklin. We had a good time even though it was PACKED. I do not mind waiting without Evie but with Evie - that's another story. She did better than me though. Evie loved her pizza and was absolutely perfect during our meal. We went for ice-cream after dinner at Baskin Robbins. Evie had to have pink ice-cream which was strawberry. She was thrilled with her pink spoon too. It was a fun night. Evie has been talking about icecream non-stop!

Evie visiting the chick's last March! She sure has changed.
  Saturday we went to Franklin again so that Evie could see the baby chicks. We did this last year too and she loved it even more this year. I talked Carl into picking a chick up so she could pet it. Evie practically yanked his head off but was so excited to pet a baby chick. We even met another little girl named Evie. After the chicks, we went to the Farmer's Market for doughnuts. We love fresh produce too but it's not too plentiful yet this season in our neck of the woods.

   Campbell and his family invited us over to celebrate his birthday. We had a blast! Evie loves those boys so much and they are so cute together. We had a great time hanging out in the backyard and we enjoyed delicious burgers along with scrumptious cupcakes complete with John Deere decorations. We love the C's!

   I am getting a little anxious that we have done nothing to prepare for Baby Boy and I mean NOTHING! Carl helped me pick the paint this weekend. We decided to go neutral to help me with my bedding choice so now I need to pick Evie's color. It will be a major switcharoo but will be so nice when we have both rooms ready to go! Courtney gave us LOTS of precious little boy clothes which made me so excited to see my sweet little boy. Although, I am wondering how in the world, we are going to manage life with two kiddos. Everyone keeps telling us it will all fall into place!

  Evie spent most of the weekend swinging. Carl pushes her and she squeals with delight! It's so cute to watch although I must say that the rigging of the swing makes me a tad nervous. Even our 8 year old neighbor, said she wondered what "that" was for as she referenced the rope. So far, so good and Evie is as pleased as punch. Evie loves to swing so this should provide countless hours of entertainment. She even ate lunch in her swing.


  1. Baby Boy will be decked out with those hand-me-downs. I love all the clothes I see on those boys. You still have plenty of time, although I'm sure you're eager to have a space for everyone. I can't wait to hear about your adventures with two.

  2. Cilla would swing non-stop if we would let her too! We love Mellow Mushroom, too! we have one here in Fayetteville and it is yum-o! Looks like a fun weekend! But I hear you....weekends are so tiring, too!
