Cousin Alayna Meets Shelby

Back to reality here in 'Dee's World' after an awesome visit with my cousin Alayna who happens to my best friend.
She arrived Thursday afternoon and unfortunately the weather just wasn't good for her visit.

That didn't slow us down though. We made the most of our time.
I didn't take as many pictures as I would have liked but here's what we have.
Shelby dressed for a day of shopping on Friday.
I have found an easy outing is SouthPark Mall.
We can lunch, I can feed Shelby then we can shop around.
Also, Nordstrom has a great Mother's room with a great changing table complete with sink and all.
Alayna insisted we have someone take our picture in Pottery Barn Kids giving how cute it is.
Love all the pink!
I feel so honored to have Alayna travel in to meet our daughter.
It's very special to both me and Brad.
Of course, Alayna was there the past few years when we were trying to conceive.
She listen to me cry.
Only, maybe a few hundred times.
Brad was nice enough to watch Shelby one evening and one afternoon so we could get out without the baby.
On Friday we celebrated 'National Margarita Day' with dinner at La Paz.
Then on Saturday, we enjoyed an afternoon snack and cocktail at The Wine Shop.
Then Saturday evening we laid low and stayed in with Brad cooking his famous pizzas.
Such a GREAT visit!
We can't wait for the rest of the Arkansas family to meet Miss Shelby.
The next group gets here in April!!
