Birthday and Mother-To-Be Day

It's been a while since my last post! 

WELL, it was a crazy fun weekend! I had my birthday and Mother-To-Be Day all in one! I was extremely spoiled! Grant got me a new camera (see other post) for my birthday and for Mother's Day he bought me a dozen roses and spending money for our Florida trip! Grant is speaking at a retreat in Destin and they GRACIOUSLY allowed me to come along! And, my bosses GRACIOUSLY allowed me to go! So grateful! We have 6 days of not doing anything at all! It's going to be super nice!!! 

My side of the family got me a prenatal massage! Sooo nice! I think I am going to hold off on cashing it in until after Camp Electric...when I will need it! Grant's parents got me a pedicure and manicure!!! NICE! I think everyone wants me to relax!!! 

Here is a super cute onesie that my bosses bought for me! It's from The Bomb Mom Website which is TobyMac's wife's website! They got me a maternity shirt and a onesie for Maksim! 

My wonderful friend, Chelsea, took me out to eat at my favorite restaurant, OLIVE GARDEN! She was passing through on her way to see her parents and stopped in to see me! She gave me some fun shopping money and I bought some maternity shorts (I wish I could wear these shorts all year round when I am not even pregnant. I have a complex with shorts...always have and maybe always will unless I wake up one morning and I have Heidi Klum's legs!) and I bought this cute onesie for Maks! I know, I know! #1: It won't be baseball season when he gets here and it's a newborn onesie, #2: he won't be able to wear it for long, and #3: The Braves are pretty much on a losing streak right now, but faithful fans will stick by them!!! It might be kinda mean to push this on Maks, but he's gotta learn young! 

I have a little more shopping to do with my shopping money from Chelsea and I will have a BLAST doing it! 

On my actual birthday, we had one of my favorite lunches! Spaghetti with my family and then after my Mom left for work, my Dad, Kristina, Matt, Grant and I went to Lowe's to pick out paint colors that matched these bowls/place settings that Mom has and we painted her kitchen! It took us about 3 hours tops even with clean up! I was impressed! She was totally surprised! Here's the end result!

It's funny how paint can really change a room! It even makes her table look better and new! It goes with the country look of the space. My Dad and Kristina looked at me funny when we started the bottom color...they were unsure about it, but I think now they love it! It even makes the dark blinds pop!!! 

My Mom and I are throwing a shower for my sis-in-law this Friday so I am excited to use the new space! 

More pics to come! Showers galore this weekend!
