This is going to be a GREAT week!

Tomorrow I leave to go home to Arkansas!!! Yeah!!! Bonnie is already there, she flew in on Saturday. I was just informed that she and my Mom bought us matching outfits to wear to our shower next Saturday. Of course you know me…I will be taking LOTS of pictures during this trip and I’ll share with you all about the shower and I am hoping to get some cute pregger pictures of me and Bonnie together.

Things I am looking forward to:

  • Seeing New Moon finally with my Mom and sister! Everyone in bloggyland has already seen it and I am dying over here! Yes-we will miss you Edward…you are hardly in this one!
  • Spending time at the farm and my Nannie’s fried taters
  • Our double baby shower
  • Seeing family and friends I haven’t seen in awhile
  • Black Friday shopping with my family…I haven’t been able to do this in SEVERAL years because I always have to work.
  • And just RELAXING!

I’ll be back December 3rd so everyone have a great Thanksgiving week!

XOXO Becky
