Weekly Recap

Last week, Pearl and I spent a lot of time together.  Jeremy was studying for the PE exam so Pearl and I were on our own.  We spent most of our time at home during the week.
On Thursday, Pearl and I finally got out of the house.  I drove down to Dallas (about 1.5 hours away) to visit my grandma Pearl with my parents.  She is living in a care facility now for people with Alzheimer's Disease.  It was sad when she had to move there, but she seems to really like it.  She also does a pretty good job of remembering who baby Pearl is.  I think it helps that they have the same name :)
Pearl watching me sew Thursday night after visiting grandma.
Pearl also hung out in my studio while I did some sewing projects, but I mostly worked on them during her naps.
Jeremy had his exam on Friday.  Once he got home that night, I went to get takeout at his favorite local restaurant.  I think we all felt a sense of relief that the test was done.
At home on Friday scooting backward down the hall saying "da-da."
Saturday was nice and sunny.  I finally got a baby break, too!  I went  Becca's surprise baby shower.  It was fun to chat with other women and not worry about Pearl for a few hours.  I needed that after this week!  That evening we also went over to a friend's house for a potluck and good conversation. 
The only photo I took at the shower.  Cute decor made by Lauren.
On Sunday, we walked to church (still sunny!), stopped at a garage sale on the way home, ate giant breakfast burritos, played games with Jeremy's parents, and had a short visit with my sister and her family.
Ready for church.  I love the floral print on her overalls.
The weekend was a much needed re-charge. I hope you all had a great one too!


  1. Yay for your hubby - i hope he did well on the exam! And yay for a mommy break! I finally got a little one this weekend too :) Love Pearls church outfit!

  2. So cute! Yay for your hubby's exam being done! Holden has been saying "Da-da" a lot lately, too...but don't think he has any idea what he is saying yet. I LOVE the floral print overalls.

  3. Sounds like a great weekend! I hope Jeremy did good on his test! We also enjoyed the sunshine this weekend, our yard looks fabulous and I am proud of the work we've done so far. I don't even remember last summer, so I am hoping to spend more time out there this year. See you tomorrow!


  4. I love the cactus decor!! What a great idea

  5. eeeeeek. the PE exam! I bet he's glad to be done with it. Daniel will have to start hitting the books sometime next year, I think. And goodness, I'm so bummed I missed out on B's shower. Totally spaced. xoxo
