My lovely Weekend

First of all, before I begin, could someone explain why I am getting such huge influx of traffic from Star Style Inc.? Surely they aren't posting pics of bloggers in their day clothes? Cause if they are, I'm not leaving the house again.

Second, thank you to all of you who posted your thoughts on facebook about the tackless lady at my church. If you haven't chimed in yet, please do. It's an awesome thread.

Third, I know I said I would do a giveaway each day this week, but I really wanted to post about this weekend. Don't worry, I'll have them the rest of the week.

Now, to the good stuff....

Last week was Shane's birthday. We got a babysitter and went downtown for dinner. (Camera phone pic, not the best.) He is so dang cute! Even if he's an old man of 33 years old.

The next day was Friday. I've been having problems sleeping and basically crying a lot. Sleeping problems are normal. The crying has been just since we moved. Shane booked me a hotel. He sent me on a "Mom's weekend out." YAY! 

When I got there (with my Chinese takeout, peanut butter snickers and sleeping pill), Shane had flowers waiting and this little note. The three months he is referring to is the three months of rehab time I sometimes feel I need. 

I spent the night eating in bed and watching "The Social Network". Incredible movie. 

I sleep all night long.

The next morning I slept in, and ate breakfast in bed. Read blogs and watched "Barefoot Contessa". I requested a late checkout.

 I went shopping and got a mani pedi.  

I had dinner with some new friends from church. 

I went shopping some more. I had a birthday party to prepare for....


Shane and Lydia have been really into "Where's Waldo" lately. They lay in bed and look for all the hidden people and objects. I thought it was a perfect birthday party theme for the sweetest daddy/husband in the world.

They both loved it.

Milk free cupcake for collin.

After the cake we had a "Where Are My Birthday Presents!" hunt. There was a present hidden in each room. Some of them were for the kids to play with too. It was so fun, I'm thinking of making it a tradition.

Happy Birthday Shane!


When I was talking to a friend during my day off she said that I probably shouldn't mention my weekend on my blog. She said it will make women expect the same thing from their husbands. Well, ladies, there's nothing wrong with that. Everyone needs solitude. Everyone needs a break from their job. Every father needs to know what it's like to be alone with the kids for a couple days. 

Stay at home a room.

Oh that sounds fabulous! I went to Women's Conference last year and my husband watched the kids for 3 days. It was awesome. I'm going again this year. Hooray! And I seriously can't believe what that lady said to you. Well, actually I can, but it's still appalling.

Sounds wonderful! And I don't see any reason why you shouldn't blog your's your blog, your weekend, and then we can be happy for you! :)

P.S. That Waldo cake is FAB!

I could sure use a "day off"! But, I'll have to wean the baby first!
PS- LOVE that cake!

Natalie -
My heart goes out to you that you've cried a lot since moving to Boise. Is there anything I can do? The offer to meet up for lunch is still open...

Kelli said...

Rehab.... That's going to be my new need. Haha. Looks like fun and I love the cake and them. I guess I haven't seen pics of your hubby lately or something but I always thought your daughter looked like u but next to him.... Boy oh boy does she look like her daddy . So sweet!

Shannon said...

Oh all looks so lovely!!!!
(hope you got my emails, thanks again for the swap goodies, love them)

I can't even begin to imagine!!! :) It's nearly a miracle for me to even go to the grocery store alone or even sleep 'late' on a weekend!! :) Maybe I should pay your husband to talk to mine! Glad you enjoyed your time!!

Do you realize you still have a LOST poll on your blog? Jack was the hot one if you are still wondering.
