Here are a bunch of pictures...
Many thanks to the Robinsons, Sineways and Cowarts for throwing the shower for us. You guys are such great friends and it was a perfect evening! Griffin can't wait to meet you all and hang out at next year's tailgates.

I was about to make a list for all the things in my life that I am thankful for, but honestly, couldn't find the words. I just know that I have been truly blessed...God is good!
Speaking of giving thanks...I have GOT to finish up my thank you notes for all of the gifts we got at the shower. If you haven't gotten yours yet, it's coming soon.
Speaking of coming soon...I've got a lot of things I want to post (nursery pics, gift pics, etc), so stay tuned! Hopefully I'll get to update the blog a few times this week.

The first major task for the weekend was installing a ceiling fan in our master bathroom. I've wanted one of these forever and I'm so happy to finally have it! Now, on the off chance that I decide to actually dry my hair in the morning, I will not be pouring with sweat when I finish...ahhh, luxury! (Notice Chad's grandfather reading the instructions in Spanish...ha!)
The next day, while the girls were getting ready for the shower, the men put Griffin's crib together.
Now on to the shower!! Like I said before...It was fantastic! It was at the Benefield's beautiful house and everything looked wonderful.
And now for a bunch of pictures...I'll try to shut up and just let you look.
Have to say that this sweet little pillow with Griffin's name on it was hand made by Mrs. Case. So cute! It's now haning on his nursery door.
There are so many more pictures from the shower, but unfortunately they are not on my camera. I will work on taking photos of some of our great "loot" so y'all can really see some of the fun stuff I (sorry, we) got! We've already started putting things away in the nursery and have even done a few loads of "baby laundry." Let me just tell you, there is nothing better than the smell of a clean, warm, fluffy baby blanket that is straight out of the dryer. Love it!

My jaw dropped when I saw 80 DAYS LEFT!!! Really?! Holy Cow!
I mean, I know 80 days is still a while, but....80 days!! Throw in Thanksgiving and Christmas, then my birthday and that of the good Martin Luther King (no work...woohooo!) and I just feel like these 80 days will fly by!!
PS...I know I have a few loyal fans who are anxiously awaiting pictures from my ladies shower this past weekend. They will come soon, I promise! It was such a fun and special day, I can't wait to share and document!
My lovely shower hostesses...you all are so wonderful!

We are really happy with the furniture and really love this dresser!
I love how this room is turning out! This couch has to stay (because we have no where else to put it), but it really doesn't look too bad in the room.
Yesterday was a big day. I found out the following information:
My friend Shannon from high school got the great news that she and Nat are expecting a little GIRL!! As far as I know, this is one of the few members of the female sex that will be born in 2010. Seriously, everyone I know who is pregnant is having a boy. Shannon and I had fun planning our weddings together 3 years ago, and have had a blast talking babies so far. Next, we look forward to planning the wedding of Griffin and baby girl Doughtie - but we'll give that another 25 years or so.
My BFF from college Lindsay found out yesterday that she and Adam will be welcoming a baby BOY into the world! Lindz, I think we're right on track with our 5 year plan...so what if a few of the "details" have changed?! haha! Can't wait for Griffin and baby Todd to be BFF's just like us! I only wish we lived closer, but maybe we can bring back the whole "pen pal" fad, huh?
