New slideshow and update

Okay, so I've really been slacking on the blog lately which I have no excuse for. There has been so much going on that I could probably post at least a couple times a day and still not fit everything in, well...that might be a slight exaggeration.

In an attempt to catch up on the almost two weeks that I've been MIA I made another slide show of just a few pictures.
I think I mentioned that Koby's co-workers gave us a baby shower a couple of weeks ago. It was really nice and pretty relaxing as far as showers go. We sat around, ate burgers and cake and just had a good time.
For our anniversary Koby had Angela bake a cake and he also gave me a gift certificate to the Boardwalk Spa. The cake was really good and the gift certificate was heavenly. Caren and I went together and got manicures and hour-long massages. I was so incredibly relaxed for the rest of the day. If you are pregnant (or even if you are not) I highly recommend getting a message!
We've had a lot of company mom stayed with us for about a week after she got back from dad and Jason and Caren came in Friday night and Glenda (Koby's mom) and Stephanie (Koby's sister) came in on Sunday. They all came for the baby shower at the church on Sunday night. It was a lot of fun and baby Olivia got quite a few gifts. It was a huge blessing!
Last night we went to a breastfeeding class taught by St. Joseph's hospital. Even though I've been around breastfeeding on and off for the last 8 years of my life (thanks Irene!!) it was still really helpful to hear all about it. I'm not as intimidated as I was before and I'm looking forward to a pleasant experience. We go to our childbirth class ALL DAY on Saturday. We'll be there from 8:45am-5:30pm. There goes my only day to sleep in, but hopefully it will be worth the time. After this weekend we don't have any plans except to stay home, rest and prepare for Olivia's arrival. The nursery is not even close to being ready so I've got some work to do. I also need to get the baby book started and make sure I have all the things for the hospital bag. Yikes!! I can't believe I'm already close to that point.

Enjoy the slide show!

What I'm ExCiTeD about...
Every day that goes by means that I'm one day closer to meeting Olivia, AND one day closer to cooler weather!!
