Weekend FUN (And Where's The Carolina Snow?!)

Hello from UN-snowy Charlotte, NC! We are "supposed" to get snow today; about that we will see. My refrigerator looks like a college kid's (lots of cheese, some lemonade, yogurt tubes and beer -- O'Douls Amber for moi, if you must know). I'm planning on taking the girls to the grocery store this morning to load up on the essentials -- tomato soup and bread for our grilled cheese sammies.

This weekend was GOOD but it was also TIRING. I was a single mama for the long weekend! Props to all of you who parent solo (or have a traveling spouse).

Ian went on a work trip to Colorado and skiied his heart out! It was awesome for him.

Friday night I had a babysitter and was able to attend the Emily Ley book signing! I had her two books Grace Not Perfection and A Simplified Life signed by her and we chatted for a few minutes. What a sweet person she is! I can't imagine doing the city-to-city book signing she scheduled; rockstar status. I know it's got to be exhausting but she had a permanent smile and lots of energy.

I did have a little bit of time to kill before the signing so I walked around the mall for a bit and looked at some tops to transition me into spring. The junior's department at Nordstrom is no hidden secret but it's definitely my favorite way to shop for Nordstrom quality and Nordstrom customer service, but lower prices.

So hubby's sending me photos like this:

And I'm responding with pictures like this one (cleaning up from lunch). I'm sure he was jealous. 

But we girls had a really good time. We let go of the mess...

... and we had FUN!

We spent a good amount of time at home for ease, but also had some outings and the girls enjoyed a proper Waffle House breakfast. 

I secretly love weekends like this; my husband (who works SO hard for our family) got some great time to do something he really loves, and I was able to hunker down with the girls and have a very sweet low-key weekend.

But man, I am definitely scheduling a looooooooooong manicure and Marshalls shopping trip for myself THIS weekend ;) And he knows I've deserved it!

  1. Girls' Weekend! Sounds like a nice weekend. & that pink top - LOVE IT! :)

  2. I especially love the last pic of the girls-precious! :-) Sounds like a nice weekend with your girls and I hope you get some alone time soon!

  3. Jealous of his Colorado weekend skiing! You are such a great mama to those precious girls!

  4. You are seriously THE cutest pregnant gal. I was always so puffy and chubby! Haha! I love that pink top on you. Brandon travels for business often, but it's thankfully during the week 99.9% of the time; you're a rockstar for handling it on your own -- on the weekend! That's SO hard for me for some reason! :)
