Girls Weekend!

Last weekend we helped my bother and sister-in-law celebrate their 1st anniversary! Here they are with a few little gifts and big smiles...filled with love! To many more!

This Valentine's weekend brought 5 of my wonderful friends (some since the age of 4) to my house for a girls weekend! Even though we no longer live in the same city we make sure to get together about every 6 months, no husbands or kids...just the girls. Beth traveled from Milwaukee, Liza and Shelly from Green Bay, Chloe from DePere and Megan from Spruce. Thanks for making the trip over, it was so great to see everyone and to catch up!

We have a traveling pink flamingo that gets passed from girl to girl as they get married. Beth is the current "owner" of the flamingo and made sure that it made the trip! It was perched in the front window ALL weekend!

Girls weekend is a very relaxing weekend filled with food, sleeping, food, catching up, did I mention food and of course lots and lots of laughter!

Beth and Liza in a very common position...lounging on the couch!

Megan and Shelly snuggling! Watching the opening ceremony of the Olympics.

Of course Paisley joined in on the girls weekend, here she is giving Chloe a "hug".

Saturday afternoon we decided to get off the couch and go to a movie. We got dressed and enjoyed an afternoon at the movies and then dinner at Manny's!

Chloe and I have shared a lot in our lives and now we are experiencing pregnancy together. Chloe is due June 14th with her second, she already has an adorable son Jace! Here we are belly to belly.

Here we all are! From left to right: Chloe, Shelly, Liza, Beth, Megan and me!

Dinner at Manny's (a fun Mexican restaurant), don't worry they were NON-Alcoholic margaritas!

Shelly and Liza finishing off a bottle of wine...nice work ladies!

Shelly, Liza, Megan and Beth left Sunday morning and Chloe stayed until Monday. Chloe and I decided to venture to Woodbury MN and hit up the gap maternity store!

Thanks again ladies for making the trip!

David was off in Menomonie with all of the "baseball guys" reunited to play ice softball. He had a fun say the least. Here is how he spent his Sunday!

As I mentioned in the previous post, the beard is suppose to disappear now that ice softball is done...I will be sure to post a picture when it finally goes away!

Baby Update:

We are currently 19 weeks pregnant...almost 1/2 way. We have our "big" ultra sound on February 25th. Even though we will turn our heads if and when we are able to tell if it is girl/boy; we are still very excited to see our little peanut again! It seems like so long ago that we had the first (unplanned) ultra sound.

Some big news...I have now felt Baby Rueber move two different times (I think). It was a crazy feeling and made me cry the first time I felt it! I am so excited to feel him/her more and more as he/she gets bigger!

Baby R. weighs approximately 8 1/2 ounces and is about 6 inches from head to bottom, about the size of a large tomato. Hair is starting to sprout on his/her head. Those of you that know my husband, know that we will have a baby will a FULL head of hair, so I am sure by now it can almost be put into a pony tail! :)

Look for a post in two weeks, we will have new pictures of our little peanut!
