After being sick all week long with a nasty cold I think I deserved a few wonderful days and I absolutely got them! It had been a long time since a weekend has felt like a true weekend and it was glorious.
Last minute, my mom asked me to go to this one-night women's conference at a local church. Somehow, I was free and (finally!) healthy enough to meet her there on a whim and it was an awesome Friday night. It was night of music and multiple speakers that really challenged and inspired me. I hadn't been able to do something fun with just my mom in awhile so I'm glad it all worked out :) Even though I was out way past my bedtime, it was worth it.
Saturday, Jared and I were SO thrilled to feel like there weren't any major house things that needed done that day. Friday afternoon we had our realtor photos taken and that was one of the last 'big' things before listing our house for sale. We were exhausted from the cleaning, decluttering and staging that went into that- so lounging around Saturday morning was amazing. Of course, we were up at 6am with little T as usual, but I snuck off on a donut and and iced coffee run thanks to some gift cards we'd forgotten about.
And then? On another whim, we decided we were well past-due for a date night so after T went to bed my in-laws came over to hold down the fort. Jared and I were like a couple of kids headed to prom, I swear. We were so excited to just be out of the house with no diaper bag/bottles :) We grabbed dinner at a new Mexican restaurant and window shopped at a few local places just for fun. While we were out, we decided it was essentially our Valentine's Day date so as typical tightwads that we are- we picked out cards for each other. And then showed each other which card we could have given each other. And then put the cards back and didn't buy them. HA!
Sunday was an equally laid back day with church and a trip to the mall. The whole weekend just rocked my face. The weather was warm enough for long walks through the neighborhood and it was incredible not having any plans or obligations. With all the house craziness life has been a blur, so we needed a slower weekend of hanging out and just being a family. It was just what I needed and I'm ready to rock this week ahead. Let's go! :)
