Weekend Wrap-Up

It was a short weekend for me since I spent all Friday, and half of the day Saturday, in California for work. I was so ready to get home to my guys because I feel like I have spent almost this whole month in a hotel room or in an airport. I love getting to travel for work but I am so happy to spend this next week home.

When I got home on Saturday we went for a quick walk, since we knew the weather was going to be nasty the next few days, and Bennington would be darting out the door every time we opened it if we didn't. Then we jumped in the truck and headed to the grocery store to stock up on some junk food and adult beverages because those are the most important items on the list when there is an impending ice storm coming your way, amiright?

When we got home we played for a bit, pampered Boston, and then put him to sleep. He is so darn spoiled.
Then Dustin and I made ourselves "dinner" (cheese and crackers… my kind of meal) and tasted some new beers. Our grocery store has a "Build Your Own Six Pack" section so we thought it would be fun to have a little beer tasting once B was asleep. 

We watched St. Vincent, drank our drinks, and munched on our snacks. It was such a great movie and I bawled like a baby when it ended. But I think my whacked out hormones made me way more emotional than normal which would almost be embarrassing if I didn't have somewhat of an excuse.

For those who don't follow me on Instagram, I started up fertility meds again this past month. They didn't work as well as they did with Boston and left me with OHSS and some really messed up emotions. Hopefully we will get things leveled out soon, but until then, we will be taking it easy around here. Doctors orders.
Sunday morning we made a big breakfast and some mimosas.
And Daddy entertained Boston with his Valentine's gift.
We spent the rest of the day curled up on the couch watching Fixer Upper (which again had me crying my eyes out.  Lord help me). Staying warm by the fire. Playing with Boston…
And soaking up all of this awesome family time.
I feel like these are the things the best weekends are made of. I really hope I will remember some of these moments for the rest of my life. And I hope everyone is staying warm and had a great weekend like we did. We will be waiting for the next one all week long and that is one thing that I doubt will ever change.

  1. What a perfect weekend. Beer, cheese and crackers... yes please. That sounds like the PERFECT evening together.

    Have a great week girl.

    1. It was so much fun! And so much cheaper than a night out. ;P

  2. A cheese plate and beer tasting?! You're a girl after my heart. OHSS, poor you! I thankfully didn't deal with it during our IVF cycle, but I know too many women who have, and I know it's no fun. I hope you're feeling back to normal soon. And until then, cry as much as you want to.

    Our Little Miracles

    1. Thanks so much, Jenn! I hope things get back to normal soon too but until then we have a great excuse to stay home and take it easy I guess.

  3. Your little one is so cute! Sorry to hear you have to travel for work. I struggled with being away from my little one for work too and ultimately ended re-directing my career so I wouldn't be away from him as much. I'm sure you will find what works best for you.

    1. Thank you! Right now is our busy season but here in a couple months it should slow down so there is light at the end of the tunnel. And I don't mind traveling but 3 weeks in a row was a little much. I am glad you found a solution that worked for you!
