My sweet friends threw me a little baby shower last weekend. It was so nice to just sit around and chat with my girls. We collected diapers and wipes to donate to a local pregnancy home for young mothers which made my heart happy. I’m working with Pampers on their newest diaper and wipe launch so it was nice to be able to collect items for moms in need.
Justin and I spent a little time this past week nailing down our top names for the baby. We now have 3 boy names and 3 girl names on our list. Before that we only had 1 each so I feel a little better having a few options to bounce around after he or she is born.
Speaking of he or she, David is utterly convinced it’s a girl and I think he will truly be sad and possibly pout if I reveal another brother to him in the hospital. I’m spending the next few weeks trying to explain to him that if the new baby IS a boy, it’s going to be great. So far I’m making zero progress in creating any kind of interest in another brother so we will just see how this all unfolds in May.
Fancy grill or not, if you love to grill but don’t have a meat thermometer yet, let this be the last thing you read before buying one. My parents have been using a meat thermometer for years but for some reason Justin and I never felt compelled to buy one. With Justin’s newfound interest in grilling, he bought a cool thermometer that allows you to keep an eye on the temperature even when you are inside. Not only has is given him more confidence in his grill skills, but our meat is cooked better than ever. If you are thinking,”Obviously, where have you been!?” then I don’t blame you because I’m not exactly sure why we waited so long to get one! We grill ALL summer long and I’m glad we have this helpful tool now!
