Busy Busy Busy

I always know that my trips home will be full of things to do but this trip has taken it to a new level! I feel like I have been on the go since I landed here on Thursday and I am almost too tired to type this post! I will have to give a brief overview of what has been going on and go into more detail later on! Friday I got to pick up all my friends from Ole Miss who flew in for my baby shower. We had such a fun weekend and it was so much to see them and get to catch up. The shower on Saturday was awesome and I got SO much awesome stuff. Now I just have to figure out how to get it all home! I have one huge box ready for the post office tomorrow and hopefully it won't break the bank! Then I have a feeling that there is going to be one more box that is about the same size. Lord, if it all gets their in one piece I will be thrilled. I wanted to get it in the mail early because I will be dying to get my hands on it on the other side so I can organize it all!

Sunday I had a shower at my mother-in-law's house and it was nice to see that side of Deaner's family. The weather was nice and we were able to hang out around the pool. Today my mom and I went up to the outlets and I got a bunch of great stuff. Lots of cute pajamas for the baby and then all the maternity clothes that I will need for the rest of this pregnancy. I have to say that it was very stressful shopping for maternity clothes. Everything makes you look so big AND the stupid lady there made me put that belly pillow on which REALLY freaked me out. I was happy to buy some new clothes and I should have plenty now to last until August. So, my stomach is really going to get that big?? Yikes!

Tomorrow we are heading to the Atlanta Mart for cash and carry. Can't wait to see if we find some cute things! Then tomorrow night I am having dinner with a friend who is flying in from St. Louis. Can't wait to see her! I'll update more when I have more time! Hope everyone is having a good week!!

So glad you have a good time!
One (maybe) helpful thing:
When I moved back to Germany from the States I needed to figure out how to get my stuff back home, luckily no furniture, just clothes and stuff.
What I found out was that it was cheaper to pay for extra luggage and take it home by plane than shipping it with usps.
You might want to compare prices.
It depends on how much you want to ship though.
I had 100 extra lbs in two bags and that was way cheaper than shipping 100 lbs with usps.
