Girlfriends and Costumes

DSC_0216

A few weekends ago, I made the short trip up to Northern, VA to see my girlfriends for a surprise baby shower. My best friend Stephanie is having a baby in February!! She now lives in Rhoade Island and I miss getting to see her all of the time. Since moving up there, she met a guy, got married, and is now having her first baby. We surprised her with brunch, shopping, and dinner, along with a gift card to Babies R Us. She hasn't registered yet, so we figured she could put that to good use. We all bought her our favorite children's book too to start her collection. She had no idea about any of it, and was so excited!

Old Roomies...Steph, Lori and I all lived together in our Kappa Delta sorority house at Virginia Tech. Gotta love these girls!! There was a whole crew, but we didn't get a group shot!

In other fun stuff...Bradley got his Halloween costume in the mail. They were priced really great, so I ordered him two different choices. I figured he could use them to play dress up around the house.

What do you think he should be??

It will probably be whichever one is suiting his mood around Halloween. But, I just had to share those sweet photos!!

He looks so cute in both costumes. I think I am leaning towards the fire fighter, but either one would be great!

What a lovely thing to do for your friend. Sounds like a great day to catch up on some gossip too!

Both outfits are just lovely..I wonder what he'll choose?!?
