At least we hope there will be some sleeping!

The final piece of furniture for the nursery is in place! We drove down to Georgia to get the crib this weekend from Sanders Furniture Company in Monroe. It's Brian's family's furniture business, and they were gracious enough to give us a crib for little miss Baby Sanders who will be arriving in less than 9 weeks! The Explorer was loaded down with the boxed up crib, a new mattress, and several bags of hand-me-downs from the cousins (thanks again, Kathryn!). It was dark by the time we got home, so I didn't get a photo of the packed car, but here's the bed once we got it inside...

Even though it was after 9pm or so, Brian got right to work (I guess he was as anxious as I was to see it put together).

He claimed it was pretty easy to assemble, and it must have been because it only took about an hour before we had a fully functional crib!

He also claims that it's sturdy enough that one of us could even sleep in it! Haha...

We still have a few more things to move out of the room though, including that desk in the corner. Thankfully my aunt will be taking that in a couple of weeks! Just ready to have the room clear of everything, so we can finally finish decorating in there. It's definitely coming along though!

We had a great time in Georgia, starting with the trip down, where I played around with Instagram for the first time (I know I'm late to the game, but did it just become available to Droids?)...

We had dinner with Charles and Veronica on Friday night. Then Saturday morning we were able to see our niece Graham's first soccer game of the season, we hung out at the furniture store for a while, having lunch with the family, then Brian and I scoured a few of the local antique stores, where I came across the most precious baby hat ever. It's a hand-knitted pumpkin by Bee Haus Designs at Hodge Podge Art, Antiques, & Interiors. Just perfect for our little November baby!

Once we walked miles of antique malls, we went back to the furniture store to load the crib! After a quick nap, we made it out to the farm for dinner with William, Kathryn, Kristie, and Daniel, while all the kids built forts upstairs, and modeled the latest trends in princess-wear.

Sunday morning was quiet, and we were able to spend a little more time with Kathryn and the kids before we left. Because we were taking off from Monroe a little earlier than usual, we took a detour through Athens to eat at Last Resort Grille, and window shop downtown, getting a brief glimpse of the UGA campus from the fringes. All in all, it was a relaxing weekend, but still too short!

These will serve as my 'weekly photo' for 31 weeks. And here's one more just for fun... one of the largest La-Z-Boys I've ever seen...
