So What if it Was Six Months Ago.

Well, I'm on day four of bed rest over here. 
I had an OB appointment on Monday and long story short, they're now monitoring me for contractions.  Because my cervix is still closed they're not entirely sure what's going on, but I go back on Monday for the third time in a week to get hooked up to the monitor and just check how things are going. So in the mean time, I'm pretty much not allowed to do anything. 
And I'm kinda losing my mind over here.

So. I figured all this time sitting on my bum would be a great opportunity to finally go through that last handful of photos from our time in Connecticut over the summer. Yeah, yeah, I know it was six months ago and they're hardly relevant now, but hey, have pity on me. I'm running out of my favorite shows on Netflix so I've gotta do something to pass the time. 
Six months to the day actually, we took a little trip to Newport, Rhode Island to see a couple of the super amazing Newport Mansions. They were amazing! I can't even imagine living in houses like these. We didn't have a ton of time so we only visited two, but The Breakers (the Vanderbilt's home) and Rosecliff (where the 1974 Great Gatsby was filmed) did not disappoint. You can't take photos inside the homes, but just hop on Google and take a look at how breathtaking they are.
On our flights to and from Italy we re-read The Great Gatsby, and I tell ya what, going to these fabulous mansions really brought a new perspective to the book. Definitely a recommended trip and one we can't wait to do again!
