Everything I Needed

This long weekend was absolutely everything I needed and more. It was so nice to have Jared home for a few days with no work and no coaching obligations. Saturday we blitzed the house because goodness, it was overdue. Do you ever find yourself cleaning something... I mean really scrubbing something clean and then asking yourself how in the world it got that bad? No? Just me? Needless to say we deep cleaned and scrubbed in places that desperately needed it and I now feel so much better. I'm always curious how often other people do certain cleaning tasks... I keep up with the basics but I know there are things I should probably do more often. One of these days I might actually make a cleaning schedule and stick to it. 

After we called it quits on our cleaning for the morning I ran some errands and did all those fun adult things like getting an oil change and cashing a check while Jared and T played at home. I love how this little Saturday routine has become a thing because an hour or two alone, out and about in the world is good for me. I love to crank the tunes in the car and sing as loud as I want, roll the windows down and not worry if T is going to cry in the back seat. I also made a solo trip into Lowe's after my errands and it's embarrassing how much I enjoyed it ;)

Then on Saturday night Jared and I made history. We went out on a date for the first time since T was born. It was a little impromptu, but Jared's parents had mentioned recently that they'd be happy to come over while we go out to dinner. Since T has been sleeping 7:30pm-7am pretty consistently we knew now was the time! I was so anxious leading up to our date, which is so silly, I know. T would be asleep the whole time they were there and we were just going to dinner at a place less than 10 minutes away. Fortunately, Jared and I went out and had an awesome time together! It was so nice to be out just being "us" and I'm so thankful my in-laws were willing to help.
Sunday I drafted my fantasy team for our family league, accurately named "Who run the world? GURL(ey)" since I got Todd Gurley with my first pick. and I'm SO ready for the games this week! I'm also doing an all girls league for the first time this year and will be drafting tonight so I'm pretty pumped about that.  And yesterday? It was a lazy, family day at home. We played and napped and watched movies and I really can't think of a better way to round out our long weekend. I hope you all enjoyed yours!

  4. Yay, Gurley! He was a GA boy :) Sounds like you guys had a great weekend. I am sure that I will feel like a trip to the grocery store alone would be a vacation after that baby comes so I totally get loving Lowe's alone. So glad you guys got to have a date night! Those are important!

  8. I was just thinking this weekend that I need to hire someone to come wash the walls, base boards, etc. I'm good w/ everyday cleaning but those big ones are overwhelming!

    Glad you had such a great weekend! xo

  9. Hooray for getting out of the house by yourself, and for also getting out of the house with your husband too! That little bit of time by yourself is definitely needed! A cleaning a house is no fun, but at least you had the time to get it done! And hooray for Fantasy Football! We're drafting our teams today and tomorrow!

  10. Ahhh yay for your first night out!!! Ours is going to be on Sunday night to a concert we bought tickets for months ago and I'm. So. Nervous. Mostly because someone else will be putting her to bed and that makes me so stressed! But I know we just have to do it and then it won't be so bad :) And yes! One of my new favorite things is rolling around with the windows down, music blaring and not worrying about anyone making noise from the backseat now, ha!

  21. We had a similar deep cleaning kind of weekend! It was kind of exhausting, but it felt so good to get it done. I'm so jealous you guys had a date!!! James and I have yet to go out alone since Gracie was born. I'm not bitter at all ;)

  22. That fantasy team name is ON POINT. I'm keeping with my JJ Watt-themed names and going with Fetty Watt this year. I'm glad you got out with Jared for a bit. Whenever I think of having a baby, I get really sad thinking about all the time with just Wheat that I'll be losing!
