First up on Friday night was my cousin Grace's wedding.
It was a glorious Catholic celebration with lots of genuine beauty, a church packed to the rafters, and tons of dancing and drinking (for the non-preggos) afterwards. The reception was outside and it was a perfect, beautiful night.
I was worried about what to wear because it was outside, and because I'm 9 months huge. I ended up buying this maxi from Kohl's which was actually in the junior section and totally not a maternity piece. I just bought it a size up and it worked great. I highly recommend this process if you are pregnant and running out of places to shop for maternity things (the selection in Lincoln is small and expensive).

Plus it was immensely freeing to buy non-maternity clothes, even if I bought all the wrong sizes and end up having to return them. I don't even care at this point -- all I wanted was to shop for normal clothes and I got my wish...and a very cheap wish at that!
Then on Sunday, David and I went to town on our yard, because we haven't done anything to it yet this year. Like zip, zero, nada. It was a desperate situation. We bought a new lawn mower (nothing like expensive not-very-exciting purchases to make you feel like an adult) and a bunch of plants for my garden that is yet to be.
Here's a random photo of the front of our house because I didn't take any pics yet. Once the garden's all done I'll post something. For now I'm dreaming of something beautiful like this:
