That's why they call it Labor Day

My friend Kristi had her baby boy today!! Congrats to her and her husband, Todd. Baby Connor is absolutely adorable. He was 9 pounds, 1 ounce, and born by Caesarean about 48 hours after reporting to the hospital for a scheduled induction. I'm planning on going to visit tomorrow and will hopefully get a couple of snuggly baby pictures.

On Friday, I had happy hour with Mrs. ESPN and she gave me the coolest bridal shower gift: the first course in the Wilton Cake Decorating curriculum, and the supplies I'll need. It is such a cool and creative gift, and I can't wait until I have the free time I'll want to devote to it. And speaking of sweets, I've found a couple of other really cool cookie deorating sites, The Good Apple and A Dozen Eggs. I can't get enough of cute cookies, and can't wait to give some dessert decorating a try.

We've had a good Labor Day weekend so far. The rule is no wedding talk, and we've stuck to it so far. Yesterday, we slept in and were lazy, took a nap, then went out for sushi and hit up Dave & Buster's. Today, we've been especially lazy. I got my hair cut, and Mr. Kingston went to the grocery store for dinner, but we've mostly been oohing and aahing over the Planet Earth marathon on the Discovery channel and then various stuff on the Food Network. I'm completely off tomorrow, but Mr. Kingston has to work his evening job, so hopefully we'll find some fun to do out of the house tomorrow.

Hope everyone's having a great holiday weekend!
