May has been a very busy month for us so far, and it's only going to get crazier each weekend until Landon's birthday party the first weekend in June. We normally do Kindermusik classes on Monday afternoons and Saturday mornings. Due the amount of parties we have on Saturdays and the fact that Landon absolutely has to have a morning nap, we've switched to Friday afternoons for the last few weeks of class. The Friday class is a "sign and sing' which is not what we usually do, but a few friends of mine do the class, so we joined it. It's SO MUCH FUN! It's basically a little sign language, music, and letting the kids play with toys while the adults socialize and play with their babies. It's awesome and I might sign us up for that class in the fall. Landon and I both enjoyed it very much and I liked hitting the drive-thru Starbucks I recently discovered on the way home.
Friday night once Landon was asleep I did some crafts for his birthday party. I will post a sneak peek later this week. I think everything turned out well. I did really simple crafts and I found them to be tedious and very time consuming. I don't know how some of you do crafts all the time! I'd much rather spend a little extra money to get something pre-made if I can haha!
Yesterday I went to a bridal shower for a good friend of mine who I used to work with. She's getting married to one of my former co-workers in July and I am so excited for that wedding (and to get a new dress)! The shower yesterday was held at the school I used to work at, the same place my engagement party and baby shower were, and where Landon's party will be in a couple of weeks. It was a pretty fancy shower with servers passing around appetizers (all of them were seafood, which I hate.) There was also some delicious sangria and a really good lunch. We did a little quiz to see how well we knew the bride and groom and a friend of mine and I won! We each got to pick a prize. I got some yummy smelling lotion and a pumpkin face mask, my friend got makeup. I was away from Landon for 4 hours, which I think is the longest I've been away from him (I know how pathetic that is) and Jeff got to watch him. It was really nice to go out for a few hours by myself, be with my friends, and have adult conversation. I also really loved my dress and makeup for the shower.
Today we're just hanging out. Jeff doesn't feel well and just wants to relax. It's gorgeous out, so I'm thinking about taking Landon for a walk once he wakes up from his nap and eats.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that the weather where you are is as nice as it is here in CT!
