Weekend Rundown

Lately I have been a bit of a homebody.  Little Pearl and I hang out around the house most of the time these days.  By the weekend I am itching to get out and do something.  Thank goodness I had a ton of fun events to go to over the weekend.

On Saturday morning, Pearl stayed home with her daddy while I attended the Portland Bloggers Meet-Up with Becca and Lauren.  I didn't take any photos of the event, but Sara and Jenni have great ones on their blogs.  There was delicious food and fun craft projects to do.  I actually ended up making one of the hair accessories I had pinned on Pinterest recently.  Thanks to Jenni for bringing the supplies!
After the event, I ran errands on my own which is so much faster than with a baby.  It was nice to check all of those things off the list.
On Saturday night we took Pearl over to a friend's house for dinner and conversation with a great group of people.  This is Pearl and her new friend Charlie.  He was born just a day after her!
Sunday morning, Pearl and I attended Lauren's baby shower.  It was beautifully planned.   The theme was "Fern" which will be her name.  I'm super excited to meet her in January!  See more photos on Lauren's blog over at Babble.
That evening, Pearl went and stayed with her grandparents while Jeremy and I went to LaMarcus Aldridge's Rip City Basketball Classic.  It was so nice to watch a basketball game and get a little taste of the NBA.  The lockout is bumming me out.  The game was heavy on offense and very light on defense, but there were a lot of fun plays and it was exciting to see what guys like Kevin Durant can do up close.

It was such a fun weekend!
