Baby Shower & Beach Goers

This past week Chris' entire family (aunts, cousins, parents, siblings, etc.) all came down to spend a week here in Newport. I, of course, requested the week off & was ready to play! We started the week off with a baby shower for Courtney (I feel like her pregnancy has flown by!)--Lindsay, Ashley, Linda, and I threw the shower. We always have so much fun throwing showers, but tend to get a little crazy (as you can see below!). 

THE SHOWER


The next day, everyone headed south! The week was full of beach, pool, yummy meals, laughing and just enjoying each other. The problem was, Chris was not able to join. Like, at all. He spent like 15 min one night and caught a dinner with us on the next. That's it. No beach, no sunshine, no nothin'! I had a great time this week, but I couldn't shake how guilty I felt. Chris has been working 8am-11pm roughly each day for the past 10days...he hasn't had a day off (yes, he works weekends). He looks tired and worn out. I know this past week would have been just what the doctor ordered...but no such luck.  So here I am, enjoying his family and playing in the sun everyday...while he is working his butt off at this job. I missed having him there and I hated having fun without him. :(Ah, it was the worst!! 

The week was full of nice, beautiful weather.  I love LOVE LOVE where I live, and I love it even more when family comes into town to enjoy it with us!
