What a weekend! Chris and I had one of the best weekends that we have had in a long time. It all began early last week when Chris surprised me by telling me that he got us tickets to go and see one of my favorite bands EVER - The Black Eyed Peas. They were coming to Denver to this great venue that is outside and overlooks the city on the last stop of their first headlining tour! I was so excited! We also had planned to go to the Rockies game on Friday night to see them play against the Toronto Blue Jays.
We headed to dinner and the game with our friends, Matt and Stacey, on Friday and had a blast. They are always so much fun to hang out with. A favorite hangout of ours offers free beer to those who come after the game with their ticket stubs. Stacey didn't like the beer option, so need I say who got to enjoy two beers each? Stacey and I each enjoyed a lovely glass of water with a lemon. :)
Saturday, Chris and I ventured into the world of the baby as we undertook the task of creating our baby registry. It was tons of fun and completely overwhelming all at the same time. I found myself in awe of all of the things that a baby "must have" according to the experts at Babies "R" Us and Target. Whatever happened to bottles, diapers, a couple onesies and a blanket and calling it good? While it was, at times overwhelming to think about all of the items we needed to make sure that our new bundle of joy would be healthy and happy, it was pretty exciting to think that we are nearly half-way through the journey already! Tomorrow marks 4 months of being pregnant! Whoa! Don't worry, I'll put up a picture this week. My students told me that I look funny because nothing on my body looks different...except that I am "looking a little round" in the front. I guess that's a compliment. Who knows with these scholars.
Sunday, we went to church and ran some errands before coming back to enjoy a nice afternoon nap, cleaning our cars and heading off to the concert. The concert was sooooooooooo incredible! It felt so good to be outside and enjoying the music of a band that I have followed for so long. It was also so refreshing to know that REAL musicians still do exist and that dancing and scantily clad appearal hasn't taken over all modern groups.
Needless to say, we were both pooped when Monday came around, but everything we did this weekend was so worth the exhaustion. We are now getting ready for our good friends Kamran and Nicole to come and visit from Michigan over the weekend. We are so excited to see them!!
As for now, I am up to my neck in grading and hopeful that I can swim out in the near future. Grades are due next week and that marks the nearing of the END of the year! No grading for 3 months? What will I do with myself?
