an incredible weekend

Tim and I had a great weekend.

For one thing, Tim had an event at work that we had been praying would go well for a couple of weeks.  And the turnout was amazing!  What an incredible answer to prayer.

And for another, I got to go shopping with Tim's sisters in Casa Grande on Saturday.  It was my first time ever buying anything for our baby girl and, well...now I'm a bit addicted.  Seriously.  They should have an anonymous group for this kind of thing.  I am sincerely attempting to show some restraint, but I am now tempted to buy every single cute baby thing I find.  Which is a lot.

And now I'm already agonizing about accessories.  Talking about baby fashion with Tim is in no way satisfactory, which is why it was heavenly to spend an entire day with his sisters.

And going to Olive Garden didn't hurt, either.

On Friday night and Sunday night both, Tim and I spent some time decorating our condo.  I love decorating for the holidays, and Tim loves...making me happy.  Just kidding.  He likes it too.  [Just maybe not to the same degree.]

Late last night, I even convinced him to help me put up outside lights.  [Read: Put up the lights himself without very much helpful assistance from me.]  Sorry these pictures are blurry.  No one should ever hire me to take pictures of Christmas lights.  Like, ever.

There may have also been Christmas music and caramel apple cider involved.  Oh and an incredible BBQ:

We make a great team, that man and I.

HOW DO YOU HAVE SO MANY CUTE DECORATIONS ALREADY?!?!? I love them! And that first picture from old navy, I've wanted to buy every item in that photo at least ten times.

I am also wondering how you have so many pretty decorations already too. I am a wee bit jealous. Buying stuff for babies is fun, but I will warn you that I gave up on baby fashion fairly quickly. Austin is the king of spit up and laundry. Not to mention he has outgrown everything so FAST! Now I just put him in whatever is not soaked in spit up and still fits him - regardless of whether it matches or not. (And it doesn't match more often than not). Though I never cared much for fashion anyway and he's cute no matter what he wears. I'm sure Ellie will be more fashionable than Austin though. Can't wait to see the pictures!
