Chicago Baby Shower

Erin Schindler and Jan Cowan graciously threw me a wonderful baby shower up in Chicago last weekend (thanks guys!). The shower was at Cafe Ba Ba Re Ba (one of my FAVORITE restaurants in Chicago) and we all had a blast! I was able to see many college and high school friends that I had not seen in a while and my Mom's side of the family all made the trek from the burbs to the city for the afternoon. Thank you to everyone for coming and thank you for your generosity...we received many items we really needed! :)

Mom's Visit

My Mom recently came up for about a week to visit with Pat and I. We had a great time while she was here...dinners out, home cooked meals, trip to Chicago for a baby shower and just getting some stuff done around the house. Thanks for coming up, Mom! :) Here are a few pictures Mom took while she was here.

Nursery Continued...

Pat worked his butt off this weekend and hung the chair rail and crown molding...and it looks AWESOME! He is working so hard on the nursery and I am very proud of him and his efforts...the room looks great! Thanks to B O B (Pat's Dad) for helping hang on Saturday and Sunday and to Kurt Thomas for his crown molding expertise. We also had a new ceiling fan installed. Check it all out! The nursery is coming along! :)
