From jello shots to onsies

Oh the good ole days circa 2006

One of my bestest friends Nikki came to visit me for the weekend! I kind of had to laugh as I thought of things for us to do and how times had changed since our college days. With both of us pregnant I certainly didn't have to worry about late nights and hitting up all the hippest bars. The jello shots and bottles of wine instead replaced with decaf lattes and bottles of water. (Did you know they make decaf espresso...I didn't. I feel like I've died and gone to heaven!!)

We had a great time indulging in lots of yummy food, including this new yogurt place....twice. (Don't judge, we're eating for two..haha) We met Gwen, fellow KC blogger, for an afternoon of pottery painting. I hadn't done anything like that in years and can't wait to see how my snowman cookie jar came out! We chatted and I picked her pregnancy brain, at 27 weeks she makes me look like a novice. We ate some more, can't come to KC without a little BBQ, and caught the movie Leap Year. (super cute chic flick BTW)

I was actually kind of glad my hubs was out of town cause we got to spend some QT time just the girls...and I couldn't tell you the last time we did that! Some days it's hard be so far from my friends, but weekends like this make me appreciate the time we get together!

Thanks for the great weekend Nikki!! Can't wait till your baby shower in March!

Sounds like a super fun weekend! I am obsessed with fro-yo and decaf lattes here and there make me feel more "normal" when joining the girls for coffee!!

I'm SO jealous you got to meet Gwen!! I love her and I wish I could have joined y'all!!

Oh jello shots - They will come back around one day :)

How fun that you and your friend get to be pregnant together!! When you guys want pickles and ice-cream I believe your hubs will be thankful that they can opt out, lol.
