bump update {34 weeks}

34 weeks is already here & it's hard to believe in another 3 weeks I will be considered full term.  YIKES!

Little E & I are enjoying:

beautiful spring walks
decaf frappuccinos
dates with hubby/dad
reading up on labor & delivery
and sewing up a storm prepping for little man's arrival

California through our eyes.

Our trip to San Fransisco and the Monterey Bay area was so fun & I was so amazed at all we were able to do & see during our time there. 

Ben obliged me on our first day, as we strode along Union Square by going to Britex Fabrics with me.  Four stories of wall to wall fabric.  Complete bliss.

We did the touristy thing & rode the cable cars around San Fran to see all the fun sights like the Cable Car Museum, Lombard St., Fisherman's Wharf, & more. 

The Ferry Building near Fisherman's Wharf was one of our favorite stops at the Wharf.  Local artisans pack out the place with delicious local foods, handmade treasures & more.  I am pretty sure I had the best Vanilla steamer made from local milk.  Ever.

Boudin's was our stop for San Fransisco Sourdough & it did not disappoint :)

Monterey, Carmel & Big Sur were our next stops--I could have spent weeks exploring this area..or maybe I will just make it my goal to live there someday.  Either way, it was gorgeous. 

We did the 17 mile drive through Pebble Beach & saw seals, the Lone Cypress & so many other natural wonders.

Hiking through the cliffside beaches of Big Sur was just as breathtaking.  We even ate our lunch overlooking the cliffside beaches.  Heavenly.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium & Nemo.


 And back to the Golden Gate where we said good bye to sunny CA, for now :)

A Surprise

Little E & I were in for a big surprise this weekend when my sweet friends threw a beautiful & fun shower for the two of us :)  Ben was even in on the surprise & completely had me fooled until we walked through the door.  So sneaky!

Super cute decor & amazing food, made for such a charming & memorable day 

Party favors & delicious treats

The tree branches in the picture below, were used to write down guesses for what little E's name will be.  
We had guesses from Eli to Eduardo...
Just a couple more months to wait & see :)

I love old baby blocks <3

Many sweet gifts from sweet, sweet friends...

Thanks for a beautiful day!!
