What a Weekend

After some disheartening news from the doctor Thursday, I was so thrilled to have a weekend to look forward to. The news was that my fracture is worse than they thought and that means crutches are going to be in my life longer than just 6 weeks. Try 12 weeks. Yeah, I can't talk about it. Regardless, Jared was home all weekend AND he's taken off all this week for a little staycation. If you can call it that. Really, it's just so I can rest more and not worry about T for awhile. It's going to be a huge help in my healing process! As much as I wish we'd be out doing all the fun things possible, I'll take what I can get.

This weekend was a doozy for us! We attended two different birthday parties. One for a 5-year-old and one for someone turning 50. Opposite ends of the spectrum but both lots of fun! At the kid's birthday party we got to see our college pals, celebrate their oldest and meet their newest little boy who's only 7 weeks old. T was in backyard heaven at their house. Since we JUST had our sod and grass seed laid a few days ago, we haven't been able to spend a lot of time out there. At this party he was a climbing, crawling, playing little man and couldn't be happier about it.

After T crashed hard Saturday night we were able to squeeze in church and some meal prep before heading to a surprise 50th for Jared's Uncle. We used to live down the street from him before we moved and he was always our favorite neighbor ;) I can't tell you the number of times he let us borrow tools, how many times he came down to help with a project we were working on and he always kept an eye on our house for us. He is such a good guy and we were happy to have the afternoon free to celebrate and catch up with lots of family members.

T also got to hang with some of his second cousins at the party and he thought they were the best! It's so nice to get T around other young kids since it doesn't happen nearly enough.

In other news- Jared and I did SO MUCH COOKING this weekend. I'm not sure what got into us but we made a ton of different things that all turned out really good. The bonus? They were all healthy recipes! We got a little crazy on Dr. Axe's website- he has some amazing recipes on there. I made something with dates for the first time and surprised myself by liking it.

And okay, I lied- I said everything we made turned out really good... but we had one disaster Friday night. However, that story is getting it's own blog post later this week. Stay tuned.

  4. That's such a bummer that you have to be on crutches for 12 weeks! I know that it's going to suck, but at least you have a good support system in your amazing husband and friends! All of your birthday celebrations looked like so much fun, and T looked like he had a blast!

  10. 12 weeks?? I am so sorry! I have no idea how you're taking care of a baby on crutches. No idea. But you're a superhero to me. I wish there was something I could do to help!
