A Weekend of Firsts

First, I just want to say thank you to everyone who either commented on or sent me an email on my last post.  Your kind words and prayers mean more than you'll ever know.  Thank you!

On a lighter note, this weekend was pretty fabulous if I do say so myself.  Friday night we hung out at home and Abby took her first steps - 3 in a row.  I then tried for the rest of the weekend to get her to do it again without much luck.  I think she did it again twice, but only when we weren't really looking at her.  Life's about to get really exciting!

On Saturday Abby spent the night with her Mimi so the husband and I could have a very needed date night.  This is only the 2nd time Abby's spent the night over there and the first while I've been home (the other time happened while I was in Las Vegas for a work trip).  Needless to say, it was a much needed night without the baby for the hubs and me! 

We spent our night with dinner at McCabe Pub and a night out on the town at 3rd & Lindsley to see Andy Davis play.  If you ever have a chance to hear him play you should definitely go.  His music is so fun!  He's definitely one of our local favorites.  Bonus, since he's a local guy he's friends with many of the other local artists around town and Jeremy Lister and Richie Lister of Street Corner Symphony (any Sing Off fans out there?) were there and joined in on a few of the songs.  So fun!

We had a great time, but sadly I have zero pictures from the night.  We did joke with one another at dinner though that we really had no idea what to do since we weren't having to entertain the one year old!  We were also home and in bed by midnight.  Funny how life changes!

Now some of you may have heard there was a little blog conference in town this weekend which meant there were lots of fabulous ladies in town as well.  Sadly, I wasn't able to make it over to the hotel to meet everyone like I had hoped, but I was able to have breakfast Sunday morning with a few fabulous ladies (some who were here for the conference and some fellow Nashville bloggers).  Although none of us had ever met prior to this weekend, it was as if we had all known each other for years.  We talked and laughed for a good two hours and probably would have stayed longer if some of the girls didn't have to be at the airport.  This is why I love social media!

 Claire & Abby had so much fun together

 Lauren (& Claire), Annie, AP, Laura, Elizabeth, Jen, & me (& Abby)

We ended Sunday by attempting to take Abby to the park.  Unfortunately, the one we chose was more for older kids so I took her down the slide a few times and we called it a day, headed over to the mall to get her fitted for real shoes, and then headed home to watch the Oscars.  Well, Abby and I watched them anyway.  Happy Monday, everyone.
