Busy Weekend

In the Craig family we like to poke fun at the car my mom drives.  We like to call it the Gold Stripper Car.  It's a Mini Cooper convertible in this obnoxious gold color.  It reminds us of Vegas.  Yesterday, my family and I went over to my Grandparents house to plant some flowers in their garden beds.  I told mom we needed to drive home topless.  So we did.  

Mother's Day was very nice.  I feel very grateful to have a mom who loves and cares for me.  I talk to my mom everyday and am grateful for the wonderful relationship I have with her.  McKay was so thoughtful and tidied up the house for me while I prepared for my YW lesson.  He also got the equipment to start taking down the ugly wallpaper in our living room.  Service and doing things on my honey do list is the way to my heart.  Thanks McKay.   

We had a busy weekend.  I had a long list of things to get done and this is what we felt Saturday night.  Pooped.  

McKay being the plant lover that he is we had to go to three different nurseries around town to see which place had the best flowers.  This took up most of our morning and afternoon.  We finally found some plants worthy of purchasing and got enough to fill our front garden bed.  It took us most of the late afternoon to prep the soil and to plant them.  

I've been in this get this done mood.  Today marks 100 days until the baby comes and I'm getting excited, nervous, and anxious.  Nine months seems so long, but it's gone by really fast, especially this second trimester.  I have a lot of things I want to get done before the baby arrives.  Normally I would have McKay do this, but I was so determined I moved a queen bed all by myself.  McKay helped me to put the crib up.  The nursery is starting to look like a nursery.      

I went to Michael's this last week and found a great find on clearance.  I'm throwing a bridal shower for my cousin Jessica and found this to make decorations for her shower.  Normally $20, I got it for $7.  

Friday night McKay was down in Utah County helping his younger brother install a sprinkler system.  So I had the night to myself.  I've been really bad these past couple weeks and haven't been very active.  I was determined to go on a hike with Winston.  We went up Adam's Canyon in Layton.  It was a beautiful day and there were a lot of hikers on the trail, so I didn't feel scared going by myself.  Winston was really whinny the entire time, it got kind of annoying.  As we passed people on the trail I could hear them laughing about how high pitched and funny his bark sounds.  You gotta love little Winston.  On the way back was the most fun.  I slowly jogged down the trail and you should have seen some of the faces of the oncoming hikers.  It looked like they were seeing something so frightening. I guess seeing a six month old pregnant woman with a screeching dog trying to jog down a hiking trail would be enough to scare anyone.  Oh well, they'll probably never see me again anyway.  Winston was so dirty when we got done, he's normally white but was brown.  On the way home I put him in the way back so he wouldn't get me and the car dirty.    

I'm excited. McKay, my family and I will be off to California this week to celebrate my brother in-law graduating from medical school.  I'm sad Melanie and Andrew are moving farther away to Alabama, but am so happy for the next stage in their lives.

Winston is cute, no doubt about that, he actually acts human sometimes. He's going to have a hard time when Amelia comes. By the way I didn't know you all thought my car was ugly and vegas like! Mom
