Weekend Review

It is Monday again!  Where do the weekends go?  I hope you had a good mine.  Mine was busy, but fun!

Because it is really no fun to buy clothes when you are pregnant, I haven't been shopping in forever!  But I've had a bit of an itch.  I've had my eye on this Henley Dress at Gap for awhile now, and have watched it go on sale and then more on sale.  On Friday I finally decided to go and see if they still had any.  I remember after I had Phoebe all I wanted to do was wear new/different clothes other than the maternity clothes I had been wearing for the past nine months or so.  Good news!  They had it and it was $30 rather than the original $59 price-tag AND I had a $10 reward coupon.  Sweet.  New dress {not tight} for me that I can wear post baby.

Well of course while I was there I found many other cute items that I am now drooling over.  I LOVE these Legging Skimmer Jeans!  I really wanted to buy the coral polka-dot pair, but Chris convinced me that wouldn't be a good idea because: one- pant size is always a little tricky post-baby and two- I probably won't want to wear tight skinny pants for awhile, and three- they were only 20% off so still a bit pricey.  He's a good and smart man.  Maybe they will be on super sale in a two or three months when I could more comfortably buy and wear them??

A few other items from Gap that caught my eye-

On Monday I have to go into work to take a class to renew my CPR/NRP certification and now they've changed the class to where you have to take an online NRP (neonatal resuscitation) test before the class!  You only have 2 chances to pass each lesson (there are 9) and if you fail any of them you have to do it again and pay to take the test yourself!  Miserable.  Anyhow, I finished up my test this weekend (and passed) so I'm off to finish my certification.

On Saturday Chris' mom and sister came in from out of town for my baby shower.  Yep, some sweet friends of mine threw a baby shower for me!  
I'll post more about it later in the week, but here are some sneak-peek pictures from the fun...

And yes, this banner has made several appearances at both wedding and baby showers...

And speaking of babies, we have potentially changed our girl name again.  Yep, we were so sure with Phoebe and had no trouble picking it and sticking to it.  We didn't even think about changing it.  This time we were set on Harper Sage.  Then I fell in love with Ava Grace because I love double names and Chris said we could call her "Ava Grace."  (Double names are not something he has always been fond of, so I jumped at the opportunity to have a double name!!)  Well I've heard A LOT of Ava's recently and sure enough its like a top ten name right now...  I like it a lot, but I don't want something THAT common.  So our new name that I am obsessed with is Hadley Grace.  And we've talked about calling her "Haddie Grace"  (I still get my double name!)  We'll see...

So I know I've mentioned before that Chris has been preaching at East Cobb Presbyterian Church as pulpit supply for the past couple months.  We've loved being there.  That church has been such a blessing to us in so many ways and many of our RUF students have been attending.  We had been going out to lunch with them after church, but that gets expensive so this week we planned ahead and had them all over to our house for lunch. 

By Sunday afternoon we were all ready for a nap!

Happy Monday!

Linking up with YOLO Mondays, Miscellany Mondays, Monday Mingling, and Weekend Shenanigans 



  1. I think "Hadley Grace" is pretty.

  2. I love all of the names you mentioned! How will you ever narrow it down?!

  3. you look so great! and I love the dress that you picked up at the Gap. Good for you for treating yourself to something to wear post-baby! :) And double-names? a girl after my own heart :)

  4. I love Hadley Grace! I think it's beautiful.

    Also loving any and everything polka dot!

    Stopping by from the link up.

  5. Love the polka dot scarf! I have always loved the name Sage...but with our last name of Hill (Sage Hill) it sound a little to much like a Civil War battle field or something ;) I've heard the name Haddie a few times lately and think it is beautiful!

  6. Love all your finds! I need to go shopping now!
