Last Hoorah Weekend


So I get home from grocery shopping Friday and Russ tells me to pack a bag, we're going to Atlantic City.  He figured it may be the last time we go for a loooong time.  He had just booked two nights at Showboat and we were off!

Even though I tried to steer clear of the smoking tables (there are plenty of non-smoking sections), I still felt guilty for walking through areas where people were smoking.  I felt like I was being irresponsible...It really wasn't bad though.

Last night, we went to Carmine's Restaurant which a classic NYC place, but there's one in the Tropicana in AC.  The best meal ever!!! Mmmm....  And when we sat down, Russ said that the reason he wanted to take me away is because we never took the time to celebrate the baby and that when he looks back at it all, he realizes that I made the whole process easy for him and he wanted to thank me.  And he said he could never have gone through what we did with anyone else.  And that if anything were to go wrong, he knows that we'd be OK because we have each other.  Aw...I cried.

And last night, I think I felt a true blue KICK!  It wasn't any of this flutter was a thud coming from the inside.  Perhaps an elbow or foot?  For the first time, I made a real connection to the fact that there is a living, growing person in me.  Whoa.

Tomorrow I have a 4 week check u/s (that's 4/16), but I'll get checked out.  I'm feeling very positive and happy...Yay.

Then it's back to work.  Boo!  =)


  1. Awww, what a lovely weekend!!!!That Russ is a keeper ;) I almost cried reading everything he said. We just do things without really thinking about it, and sometimes make difficult times appear easy. It is so nice to be acknowledged you for keeping it together through one of the most challenging times of your life. I am so excited and happy for the two of you! xoxoxoxoxoxxo

  2. What a sweet thing for your husband to do! I'm so excited for you that you felt the baby kick... I'm also very jealous. I think I felt mine on Friday once, but haven't felt anything since so now I'm confused and unsure... Anyways, glad you are doing well!!!

  3. Sounds like a priceless weekend!! Russ sounds like an amazing husband!! :)

    YAY for the first KICK!!!! Isn't it the BEST feeling ever!??!?!


  4. Hopefully there will be many more Hoorah's in your future with baby in tow!!
