It has been a busy week! We spent last week in MS and the day before we left we drove to Jackson to my friend Melinda and her husband. After we said goodbye we stopped at Babies R Us since Baby Depot was farther away and I wanted to see if they had any deals. They did! The travel system I had on my registry was a Graco Alano and was around $170. Well for the weekend only, Babies R Us had the Chicco Cortina Travel System at $100 off for $199. While that is more than I planned to spend, I couldn't pass up the deal! I never expected to be able to get one. They also had a Pack N Play with Elephants that I loved for 69.99 (the others were around 149). I was hoping to find the miPump breast pump, but they didn't have it there. I did find the Gumdrop pacifiers I want to use though. Very good shopping trip!
On Sunday on our trip back "home" we stopped for gas. When I got back into the car there was an envelope that said "Allison, do not open until June 12". Pessimist that I am thought it must be something awful and looked at Matt uncertainly. He urged me to open it and inside are maps, brochures and tickets to Disney World, including shows and hotel reservations! The sneak had been planning it for weeks and had taken care of EVERYTHING. If you know me you know that I really really really HATE surprises and I wanted so badly to be mad, but hard as I tried, could not come up with a reason to be angry. We had a very nice trip though the heat was almost unbearable. It was a really cool surprise and Matt really got me good. :)
So we finally decided on a name! Our baby will be named Adrian Christopher. We have not yet agreed on what to call him. Matt likes Adrian, but I like Christopher. We shall see.
