Happy Monday! The weekend went by so fast, but it was SUCH a great one, I wish I could do it all over again. I want to tell you all about it, and I hope you had a good one too (especially all you moms out there!)
Friday did not start out very good for us though. Unfortunately, Emma Kate was up all Thursday night with a bad cough. I tried holding her upright in the rocking chair, giving her water, etc. and nothing worked, so no one in our house got much sleep. Even though she was acting like her crazy self and didn’t have a fever, I decided to call the doctor because, just my luck she would get worse on Saturday. They were able to fit her in Friday morning so I missed boot camp, but it was worth it to make sure Ek was ok.
Checking out the doctor’s chair during her appointment.
Thankfully her ears and lungs were clear, but she had a significant amount of drainage so we were given some meds to help her out. I decided to take her to the park after since she was so good at her appointment. It was a gorgeous day, and lucky for us this weather would continue all weekend.
Friday afternoon was spent cleaning up the house because we had some friends coming over for dinner to BBQ with us. Also, sometime during the afternoon, I got a text from my mm asking if they could stay for the weekend. They had gone up to the Biltmore for a few days, and didn’t feel like driving all the way back to New Orleans in one day, so they ended up arriving late that evening after our dinner guests had left.
On Saturday morning, mom and dad watched little bit so Bobby could go to the gym and I went on a five mile run.
We took my parents out to Livingston for lunch, they had never been out there and I told them then needed to come back during the week so we could take them to the Farmer’s Market. We walked around the shops after lunch and then headed to the house so Emma Kate could nap.
Bobby had to be up at the yogurt shop for a birthday party, so my dad and I drove around looking at open houses while my mom hung out at the house relaxing while EK napped. My dad and I share a love for looking at beautiful homes, so we randomly drove around to different neighborhoods an found about 12 houses to go into (our area has TONS of new construction so they were easy to find!) Check out this gorgeous house on the water. I loved the kitchen.
It had a huge screened porch and a deck. Heaven.
We went back to the house after the baby woke up and then the four of us piled in my SUV and we took my mom back to our two favorite houses to show her (one being the one in the above pics, of course.)
Then we surprised Bobby at the yogurt shop and grabbed a snack there before heading back home. The weather was so beautiful we were able to sit on our screened in porch and drink some wine while we waited for Bobby to come home so we could eat dinner. Then we just relaxed and watched TV that evening. It was the best relaxing day!
Sunday morning we hung out and got ready for church, and when the three of us went to leave, my mom and dad headed back to Louisiana. It was so great to see them, especially for Mother’s Day. We took the opportunity to get some family photos before they left which was fun.
After church we came home and I worked on my laptop on the back porch. Trying to soak up this low humidity while I can! Bobby’s sister babysat for us last night so we could go out to dinner for Mother’s Day. We went to eat at my favorite Mexican restaurant and then grocery shopping (very exciting).
Looking at the flower section made me laugh, totally wiped out for Mother’s Day!
On or way out of the grocery store in the parking lot, Bobby was goofing off with our cart (we had one of those short half carts) and he hit a hole and the cart flipped over forward and the momentum threw Bobby over top of the cart. Groceries EVERYWHERE, and I was dying laughing. A man jumped out of his car and came over to help us and I just couldn’t stop laughing. Poor Bobby. He hurt his shin, and his pride. We are tempted to contact Kroger for the surveillance footage just so we can watch. Sadly some of our eggs busted during the whole ordeal!
Such fun memories from this weekend, can’t wait to do it again!
QOTD: What did you do for Mother’s Day?
