We started off the month celebrating an entire year of home ownership, reminiscing about moving into our condo last Labor Day weekend, and celebrating the day off work with some sloppy joes and some Gardening Mom, Hat Dad and Sister Singer company!
Handsome Husband and I had fun catching up with some old friends (we're talking 7th grade connections here, people!) at a BBQ.
I had not one, but two fabulous lunches with Best Friend Cute Apartment over the weekends of September!
I decided to get involved in my community, and joined the Board of Directors for my neighborhoods Homeowner's Association! (I'm the youngest person there by about 10 years...)
We spent a weekend getting a lot of puppy love from Cute Apartment's doggies while we pet sat for them. Let's just say, they're cute, but I like my house puppy free for now!
HH's alma mater started off their soccer season, and we were happy to head up to Dominguez Hills to watch them play! (We would have been even happier to watch them win, but a tie ain't nothing!)
I had another doctor's appointment with an ultrasound, so we got to get another little peak at our baby girl! The farther along in the pregnancy I get, the more detailed and awesome the ultrasounds and photos are! It is so fun to see the shape of her profile, with her little nose and chin and everything showing so clearly!
I hosted Ms. Art Teacher for a little dinner and a movie, and was sufficiently freaked out by the movie, Side Effects.
HH and I spent the evening at a Breastfeeding Class, and learned a few things!
Baby Girl got another musical treat when we attended the Panic! at the Disco and Fall Out Boy concert as a family. I think the music soothed her, cause she wasn't moving nearly as much as I thought she would be. Maybe she won't be a little dancer after all!
Grandma Beach Bum and Grandpa Backgammon came over to our house for dinner to celebrate a belated birthday for Grandma BB! We have some yummy chuck roast, veggies, and salad and topped it off with some brownies!
Just a few days later, we celebrated another family birthday - Aunt Fancy Chef! This time with tacos and a pretty fabulous chocolate crossaint bread pudding, made with love by Grandma BB!
We had a fun mid-week dinner with Twin Beauty School and The Bouncer at our local deep-dish pizza place.
We got all fancied up for a black-tie event at HH's old company to celebrate a big milestone for the group. It was fun to get all dressed up, and especially fun to see my handsome man in a tux! This was one event where I was wishing I could indulge in a few cocktails though!
And the month ended with a big night of TV - the series finale of Breaking Bad (I can't believe it's over!) and the season premier of Homeland! Luckily we had Cute Apartment and Number Cruncher over to provide us with some commerical commentary throughout the intense shows!
In October? I have to do that yucky glucose test for pregnancy, HH and I are planning to hit up some more soccer games, I've got a fun shopping event, my first baby shower!!!, and of course - Halloween!
