I am so uncomfortable now and unable to sleep (thus the 1:00 am post), so I'm trying to do stuff until I get tired. It beats staring at the ceiling and trying to go to sleep.
So my wonderful friends threw me a baby shower this past weekend and I am so grateful for all that they put into it. Both my mom and mother-in-law were able to fly in to Raleigh to celebrate with me too. This was my mom's first time on an airplane in about 20 years - I am very proud of her! As I was looking at the pictures from the day, I realized just how transient my life has been the past few years. Everyone at the shower (minus my mom and mother-in-law) was someone I've met within the past year and a half. And these are the main people in my life right now. For some, new relationships are a norm, but for me, it is something I think I'm still getting used to. I love my new group of friends and am wondering if (and hoping) there will be a little more stability to who I know.
To all of you that came and helped me celebrate, THANK YOU! I had a great time and really appreciate the your kindness :)

Fellowship Raleigh recently moved its office a few blocks south on Glenwood Ave. Besides the new office being MUCH better than the old one, it is right across the street from my new favorite restaurant, Hard Times Cafe. The specialty there is chili, and evidently you can get it plain or over spaghetti or cornbread. And there are four types of chili they have you sample when you first sit down...kinda like an appetizer. Ever since our drive to Chicago where we ate at Skyline Chili in Ohio, I've really enjoyed chili over spaghetti with LOTS of cheese on top. So needless to say, I like this place. The atmosphere is nice too, and they have root beer :) Go check this place out if you are in Raleigh!
