Weekend Staycation

THANK YOU so much to my Mom and Dad for keeping Graham this weekend!! And thank you also to my brother Jon and my Grandparents who were there and helped! Here is what life was a little bit like this weekend:

I put away toys and no one pulled them all back out.

I put the throw pillows on the couch and they stayed there.

I actually left the house in the afternoon, that hasn't happened in a while!

I slept in!

I went shopping by myself. No stroller.

Chad and I worked in the yard for hours. (beautiful weather!)

Chad and I went on a date out to eat and to the movies. We got popcorn and candy.

All in all, it was a fun, amazing, free weekend!!!

But then....on Sunday...I started to miss the living room being messy. I missed cutting up Graham's breakfast. I felt sad to see his room dark and empty. It had been fun....but I was so so glad to get back to my little buddy! I definitely needed a break and thoroughly enjoyed it, but I was happy to return to my normal life when it was over.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful weekend! So glad you got to enjoy some kid-free time. :)

  2. What a sweet post! Such a great way to cherish the blessings of both sides of your life
