It’s already Friday, yet I am still trying to play catch-up since we were travelling most of the week/ trying to get back in the groove before the weekend approach…oops, that didn’t happen.
Los Angeles was tons o’ fun. And by tons o’ fun, I mean we all made it back alive. I’m not going to lie…travel with little bit wasn’t easy. Don’t get me wrong, she was good for the most part, but with the ins and outs of airport travel, shuffling around a hotel room for 3 nights, and trying to keep our sanity, it was tough, but oh so worth it. To see Jeff’s grandmother’s face when she met Caroline for the first time was priceless and a moment I will cherish forever. We got to spend a lot of time with her catching up, playing endless rounds of her favorite card game Skipbo, and of course CC entertained us all with her antics. But at the end of the day, I was excited to come home and return to “normal”. To those of you who travel with multiple small children, I humbly bow down to you.
P.S. I’ll be working on an airport travel what to/what not to do post soon!
This Wednesday was our last MOPS meeting of the year…it’s been such a fun experience and I cannot wait to go back next year. I’ve met some incredible women, learned more about my faith, and listened to some wonderful and inspirational people-if you have an opportunity to join a similar group in your city, you should absolutely check it out! It’s changed my world for the better and I feel happier when I leave after each meeting.
Last night, Jeff and I had a fun date night to an early dinner and then went to the movies to see Lincoln. I had been reading all the rave reviews about the newest Steven Speilberg flick and have to say I was blown away…it was an incredible movie and one worth seeing in the theater for sure. I’m a history nerd and love anything that pertains to the Civil War. I’m going to go ahead and call it right here, too-Daniel Day Lewis will win the Oscar for Best Actor this year…he was amazing yet again.
I tackled my mission and got our Christmas cards mailed out-it’s something I like to do sooner than later so I got to work as soon as we got them delivered and put them in the mailbox yesterday morning-hallejuah! Can’t wait to show them off very soon!
That’s all I’ve got for today folks…tonight we’ve got friends coming over for dinner, then tomorrow us girls will be heading off to Franklin to celebrate Dicken’s Christmas, and Sunday will be jam packed with church, wrapping endless amounts of gifts, and decorating our real tree to go in the downstairs family room…a fun weekend indeed!
