Weekend Rewind~Family Time

This weekend was all about spending time with family. Nick & I have been blessed with an incredibly large support system of family & it's always great to spend time with them.

Friday night we had dinner with Nick's family and everyone got to love on Elyse! After dinner we headed back to our house so Elyse could show off her rolling over skills...of course, she got stage fright and decided to keep her performances a secret for a while longer. She has still yet to roll over for anyone except for her Momma & Daddy!

Saturday we ran to Springfield and took care of some errands. I had some birthday money burning a serious hole in my pocket so I took advantage of a Banana Republic online sale to purchase some fun new clothes! I'm still working on getting back into pre-pregnancy shape, but it's so nice to have some new clothes that I feel great in!

I also splurged a bit and bought a small Coach purse to carry when Nick & I are able to go out without Elyse. I certainly don't need to carry the entire diaper bag when she's not with us! The purse I picked out hasn't even been released yet, but I'll have it on Thursday! It's the perfect plaid print for the Spring & Summer so I'm super excited!

Saturday afternoon and evening we spent at home just relaxing. Nick's parents came over on Saturday evening, and once again Elyse failed to show off her skills. Silly girl, do you like having a secret talent that you don't show to anyone?!?

Sunday was a typical day with church and then lunch at home. During the afternoon my parents and brother & SIL came over to see Elyse. They stayed most of the afternoon even after Elyse fell asleep for her afternoon nap. Uncle Nick decided he needed to wake her up quite a bit early which threw off her sleep schedule for the rest of the evening...Uncle Nick, don't you know you'll pay for that one of these days?!?

It's supposed to be such a spring-like week...sunny, windy days followed by a chance for rain later this week. I can't believe it's already March!

Yay for new clothes, family time and your sweet pea!! So glad you had a great weekend.

She's SO BIG! And SO gorgeous. I love watching her grow :)

You'll definitely have to keep your camera close at hand and video her when she decides to finally show off those rolling skills! That way you can share them with Grandma and Grandpa...and perhaps all of us here ;)
