That is how I feel after our long weekend away, refreshed. It was so nice to have have a baby free weekend (although I thought about Sterling every minute and missed him like crazy). It was nice to go out to dinner, have adult conversations and bond again. We had an amazing time. This was pretty much our favorite evening activity, lounging by the pool with cocktails. I totally need to diet and detox this week, after what I put in my body in HH.
I am almost finished with The Help, I have like 20 pages left and might just finish it tonight. I love it and will be so sad when it is done. I can't wait to see the movie, what a wonderful story.
We managed to squeeze in a little time for shopping while we were in Hilton Head, mainly for Matt some new clothes but we did find this adorable sweater for Sterling. How cute is this?
On Sunday we came back to a spotless house, I mean really. My parents had mopped floors, scrubbed doors and windows and did all our laundry. My dad even put new hinges on all my kitchen cabinets and recovered my vanity stool that Sterling ruined with his passion for ink pens. Such great surprises. I really should have my parents babysit more often if this is what I come home to!
Sunday afternoon when we got back in town we did a family boat ride that was perfection. Sterling loved every minute of it.
I feel like myself again. I felt like my life was kind of like groundhog day for a little while. Being a stay at home mom is the best job in the world but I am not going to lie, your days are long and are usually the same thing over and over again. It can really wear you out. This trip made me realize how important it is to take time for your relationship and to have some adult time! Enjoy your Mondays!
