Weekend Notes

My husband rarely has to travel for work, but when he does, I delight in sleeping diagonally in the bed.

(Sorry I'm not sorry.)

He headed to Minneapolis for training -- sidenote, it's really cold there -- and I took that opportunity to let Camille see for the very first time where her mama grew up. She's been to our family lakehouse a few times but has never been to my actual "home home" (and I haven't been there since I was 6 months pregnant!). So we packed up the car and headed to Columbia, SC, after I finished work Friday.

Moms.  :)

It was great being around my folks and relaxing at home. We ate well and laughed a lot. And it was nice letting them take care of me, feed me, and let me drink their wine!

The craziest thing is that the crib that Mom has for Camille is on the first floor, near their bedroom. And my bedroom is upstairs. It was an odd feeling having that distance between us, but she slept so well both nights.

Mom and I worked on a really fun sewing project at home which I can't wait to share on the blog, but it will be another two weeks or so before it's complete. 


When we got back to Charlotte yesterday, we were so excited to see Ian. We all went out to lunch at Maverick where Camille was loving Dad's "air chair" and waving to everyone. She did have a little runny nose then, but later that afternoon she developed a low fever, was pretty fussy, and just wanted to cuddle. So I cancelled some plans I had with friends and just snuggled her and monitored that fever. She's much better today.

One of the absolute highlights of the weekend was reading all of the awesome email entries I got for the Ja-Vie cheetah flat giveaway ... wow, talk about a lot of positivity! If you haven't yet sent in an entry, I'll take them through today and announce the winner tomorrow. Reading your sweet emails was an instant mood-booster. 

Also this week I'll be sharing a yummy muddled cocktail recipe and a low-carb side dish recipe that will seriously have you questioning your dislike of cauliflower. Promise.

Happy Monday, y'all!

Fun weekend, I usually head to my parents' when husband is gone for a few days too, letting someone else cook for you and pour you wine is the best : ) We've been eating a lot of cabbage and cauliflower lately- all roasted- YUM!

  11. Sounds like a great weekend! I love spending time at my parents house. Even though I love cuddling with my hubby while we sleep, I love having a whole bed to myself and not waking up once during the night when I travel

  12. Camille is such a sweet girl! Is the mountain house closer than their main casa? Seems like I always get confused when I compare CLT to Highlands and Columbia in terms of driving distance!
