A Weekend of Celebrating Baby Lucie

Sunday, August 9, 2015

Why do weekends always go by so fast? We arrived back home just as slowly as we got to our destination. Remember our drive to Virginia on Thursday? Well, we made the exact same drive in the opposite direction today and it was so sad leaving our friends behind. 

We had the best time celebrating baby Lucie and the mama to be, but it made me realize how much I miss not having Caroline and her husband close to us. We soaked up every second we spent with them and made many memories. It was also the first time I've seen Caroline since she announced she was pregnant, so I loved on both of them and cannot wait to meet Lucie within the next few months! 

Stephanie and I spent the day together and went to one of my favorite restaurants in Williamsburg and it has quickly become a traditions of ours. And, I mainly just love it for their french onion soup. After lunch, we jammed out to some Whitney, Mariah and Celine at the nail salon while getting much needed pedicures. 

How beautiful is this venue for Caroline's baby shower? The blue skies opened up as soon as we got there, and the hostesses couldn't have done a better job!

The four of us. 

Pound cake french toast, cheese grits, bacon, potatoes and mushrooms…need I say more? The perfect baby shower menu. 

One of the sweet burp cloths I gifted Lucie. I adore seeing her little name written out. 

After arriving back to Steph's parent's house, her parents cooked the most amazing meal consisting of freshly caught fish and shrimp…and so much more! 

How happy do our husbands look to be around each other? Ok. Maybe only Reid looks excited, but they are secretly holding in their excitement. I promise. 

Caroline, Lucie and Reid - we are so excited to meet baby L and love y'all so much! 

Steph and Justin - thank you for your wonderful hospitality and sharing your parents with us for the weekend! 

We are already planning our trip back up to VA!
