Happy Monday!

I’m sorry I was missing in action last week. I was hoping to do a couple of posts and do more updates on twitter, but this pregnancy has really zapped my energy. I took last week as a true vacation, unplugging from the real world, taking naps every afternoon when Keenan slept and catching up on my reading. We also had lots of fun at the beach, but I made every effort to get some much needed rest and relaxation since I have been so exhausted the past few weeks. It was SO nice to finally be able to rest!

Since we had such a marvelous time at the beach, what better time to link up with Katie for her fabulous Marvelous In My Monday link up! If you haven’t visited her blog, you must see her adorable new little guy, Rocco. He is absolutely precious!

Anyhow, marvelous is…

A pre-birthday celebration for Keenan, thanks to Auntie Mimi and Uncle E, since they can’t be here for his actual birthday. Keenan was ecstatic to have a tractor cookie cake with two of his favorites: kettle corn and ice cream!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
