A Quick Hit (w/ a few pics!)

 Trying to look cute posing with our friend Grey!

We had a really fun weekend here in Harlem! Our BBQ baby shower was on Saturday (I'll be posting pics soon from my friends), and we thought we'd get rain, but we didn't so I was very happy! The shower was so chill and low key and it was awesome to see all our local friends together in one place. We had about 30 friends and neighbors show up and it was great!

A couple girlfriends, Becky and Anna, from Boston came down for the trip and although it was a short stay, it was fun catching up. We went to one of my favorite brunch spots, Sarabeth's, for brunch. I really like their cherry-almond French toast, but I was in the mood for their club (yes, I like taking pics of my food!):

Anna and Becky are SO crafty, and I was delighted to receive these from Becky:

Aren't they adorable?! They'll go perfect with our monkey theme! I think these might just inspire me to take up crocheting too . . .

Anna also made a lovely mini-scrapbook/baby milestones calendar scrapbook for us. I can't wait to use it!

Well, this was the last of the baby festivities, and now it's time to hunker down and wait. This week I'm looking forward to childbirth classes and starting my document scanning project - it's the last bastion of clutter for me to conquer, and I'll feel settled before baby arrives. 

My sister is staying with us now as she searches for an apartment, and she's been a tremendous help. Thank you Ariane!
