my pregnancy journey

random thoughts from a first time mom

week 20

road trip!!!

we are HALFWAY there and i can't believe it!!! it's going so fast!!! we took a road trip this week up to ohio to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday and then to asheville, nc for the 10th east lane brewer's cup. it was a lot of miles in the car with quite a few bathroom stops and lots of traffic, but we made it through what will likely be one of our last road trips for a while.

the trip was LOADS of fun with many events and lots of quality time with family and friends. first, we celebrated mom's 60th birthday with a night on the town with close family. it was a wonderful and fun night! next, my wonderful friends threw me a surprise shower! i thought we were just having a quiet lunch, and instead i walk in to the restaurant to see some of my favorite women in the world around a table full of decorations and gifts!! I was beyond surprised and was so touched that they went through all the trouble to plan and keep it a secret. see the adorable invitation {here}. i am so blessed to have such fabulous friends! lastly, we had a get-together at the willoughby brewing company where friends and family gathered for happy hour. it was so great to see everyone without have to drive all over northeast ohio!
