Finding the harmony between being productive to prepare the nursery/work while on maternity leave/house has been harder than anticipated leaving me feeling less than stellar even though looking back and considering I'm toting around a watermelon, the month was far from a bust. I'm certain its part me trying to do too much and my body telling me to slow down, but alas -- hard lesson to learn.

Feb 4, 2016
A mutual friend of Marks and the other couple due at darn near the same time husband (Hey Anthony + Christine!) threw a Diaper Party in their honor over the weekend -- it was so much fun, and both dads-to-be had a great time.
The party was broken into two parts: food/drinks at the host's home then onto a bar for some patio sitting/day drinking which as luck would have it, St. Louis was 60+ degrees that day!
The gift tag read: "bottoms up!"
While they continued to celebrate, I snuck off to dinner with a friend.
Steak and garlic fries, forever.
Thanks again Meredith!
