Baby Shower and Low Key Weekend

We went to Kevin's hometown on Friday night and had dinner at the cutest little restaurant with his parents.  Their specialty is French Onion Soup.  It was perfect for a chilly day and end of the week treat.  We also got salads to go with it.  Yum.  The best part was that we got to catch up with his parents which is great to do!

We both felt pretty crummy with our colds so we headed to Wal-Mart on the way home to pick up OJ, fruit to make smoothies, Claritin D and Niquil.  We had most of this stuff but needed more...we knew we didn't want to go back out once we were home for the weekend. 

I slept 13 hours on Friday night thanks to basically not sleeping for 2 weeks and going too many places.  It.was.wonderful. to get that much sleep in. 

We rallied for a baby shower for some Avenue friends and it was held on the 10th floor common area so we just had to slip downstairs. 

They served lasagna, meatballs, garlic knots and salad.  It was a hearty meal and it was so tasty.

We loved seeing all of our neighbors and... some of our ex-neighbors.  Yes, Josh and Wendy moved across the street after they sold their place.  We're sad but glad they are still close to us.

Kevin and I.  We went home right after the shower and crashed. 
I did get up and run with Tara on Sunday morning, boy that was not very fun.  I mean we had fun running and chatting but I couldn't breathe.  I was a mess and glad to be home when we were finished.  It was good to get some of the congestion out of me but yuck!  Ha!

We got our chores done mid-day and I made chili to sizzle until an early dinner.  It was so nice to simply rest and recoup.  Hopefully this week isn't as nuts.  We'll see!
