33 Weeks/ Love in Toronto

33 weeks!! 4 weeks till D-day!!
EH and I made it back safely from Toronto on Sunday night and we are so happy to be home. This was one of those trips that was too short to do any sightseeing or really take in the city. We were there solely to celebrate the love of these two special people:

Looking sharp and in looooveeeee!
It amazes me that, given the small amount of time I spent at Spelman College, I could make such a lasting friendship (10 years and counting!!) that has transcended distance and time. My girl walked down the aisle wearing a beautiful Mermaid dress that showed off all the, ahem, assets and her husband was cool and calm during the whole day.

I'll say this: I Love Weddings! especially when they are not mine.

EH and I left home at around 5:30 in the morning and had a fun road trip all the way up to and across Canada. Along the way we stopped to visit some friends from our old church who moved up to Canandaigua, NY. It was a great little breather and we got soooooo many clothes and toys for Ms. W because our friends had just had twins about nine months ago. We even got a present from our friend's mom, which was so thoughtful and unexpected. And of course I forgot to take pics of the visit. I'm still kicking myself for that one but I'm sure it won't be the last time we visit them.

The hotel was nice and comfortable, food was great. The ceremony took place in a historic church in Downtown Toronto that was right down the street from our hotel, which made it super convenient for us. The wedding was so beautiful and the reception was awesome, even though we didn't get to stay until the very end because of our early departure time the next day.

See how she's bending down for the pic?? Yep, I'm that short! And I was wearing short heels. Ha!
My dress for the wedding was actually a little too big for me and ended up looking very blousy on top but it was super comfortable. I ended up changing into sandals for the reception because my feet were already swelling.

EH was looking sharp too!
EH and I stuffed ourselves silly at the reception. I was determined to eat at least a little of everything even though my stomach capacity isn't what it used to be because I hate when folks waste food at a wedding. EH and I rolled ourselves back to the hotel, packed and promptly passed out. We toyed with the idea of visiting Niagara Falls on the way back home but nixed it because we didn't leave Canada as early as we needed to.

Now that we're back home, we can't believe that in four weeks, God willing, we're going to be holding a little mamasita in our arms. It's kind of mind blowing. Tonight, EH and I are going to a breastfeeding class at the hospital where we'll be delivering. I feel like I need a million distractions just to make the time go by faster. This weekend we have our third and FINAL baby shower and then ,the weekend after that, we're off to Ocean City, Maryland for my birthday/Mommymoon.

Soooooooo excited to lay on the beach!!


  1. You are glowing! Look at Ms. W! I'm so glad you all are having a good time and enjoying each other. Four weeks is going to fly by!

  2. hAHAHA! I think I'm just Ughhh, I know the time will be upon us soon but some days it feels like it's creeping by...I just have to keep her in until after Ocean City!
