Hey all!  So sorry I did not have time to post this weekend!  Unfortunately I did not take many pictures either.  Since you are not allowed to take pictures while house hunting I often forget to take it with me on the Saturdays that we are with our realtor.  Speaking of house hunting, I have good news!  We found a house!  We are working on putting an offer in this week.  We are SO excited about this house!  It is a 2 story dormered cape style house on a really cute street.  This house has TONS of space and was kept immaculate by the people who lived there.  The house was built in the 40’s so it has a lot of charm 🙂 All the things that worry me about a house built in the 40’s (electrical, energy efficient windows, efficient heating and cooling methods, etc.) have all been updated.  The electrical is up to code, the windows are new, the switched the natural gas a few years ago, and have central air conditioning!  The kitchen is also adorable (I need to add my own touches 🙂 ).  I’ll keep you updated on this process 🙂

Saturday morning I wanted to run the Windsor Locks Canal trail for my long run since the weather was incredible.

Unfortuantely I got about a 1/4 mile into my 10 mile run when I hit a big closed and locked gate that said the trail was closed until April 1st in order to protect the wild life that live along the trail.  I was dissappointed 😦  Since there are not many other places to run outside where we currently live (busy road with no shoulder and limited and sidewalks) unless you want to run back and forth on one little section of sidewalk, I had to run my 10 miles on a treadmile!  Horrible!  Luckily E! News and the Kardashians were on 🙂  Nothing makes 10 miles go by faster than some juicy celeb gossip 🙂

Saturday night we went out to dinner right after house hunting with a bunch of family.  A lot of Stephen’s relative’s were in town for Elizabeth’s baby shower the next day.  It was very fun, but unfortuantely there were no pics taken 😦

Sunday was Elizabeth’s baby shower!  It was so much fun!  The food was excellent, and the cute little blue martini’s (since she is having a boy!) were to die for!  Elizabeth got lots of adorable clothes for the little guy and some very cute toys and stuffed animals.  Unfortunately we did have a bit of an emergency during the shower.  An elderly woman who was there was complaining of a cramp in her leg and then lost consiousness.  911 was called and it was all very scary.  Luckily we heard from her family that she seems to be ok, although the doctors are not sure why she passed out.  Besides that scary moment, the shower was a big success 🙂

Before the shower I enjoyed a breakfast burrito 🙂

Two eggs, One egg white, tomato, avocado, onion, spinach, and cheddar cheese.

Below are some pictures from the shower 🙂

Jordan almonds with little baby booties on them!

The cake!!

The table who won the baby songs game!  Posing with their prizes!!!

I am off to work!  Then to Gold’s for a 5 mile run!  I really cannot wait until it is light out past 7 or so and for the trail to be open so I can run outside after work!
