So, it seems I went and took an almost week long unintentional blog break. Not that I’m going to apologize for it(I’m not), but I thought I should pop in here at least one day this week and let you know what’s going on over here.
First things first, I went to Virginia. For almost a week. From the 7th-12th.
Traveling/Flying by yourself? Talk about luxurious! I could eat whenever I wanted(no sharing!), I could quickly get in and out of a bathroom, I read almost two entire books on my trip out and back(Outlander and Gone Girl). I can’t remember the last time I traveled sans kid, so this was definitely a treat.
If memory serves(which it may not, because I didn’t have a blog to keep track of everything for me 4.5 years ago) my morning sickness started up with Abigail right at 7 weeks. Which is exactly what this trip fell over. I was SO worried that I would be sick and miserable the whole time, but, thankfully, my BFF Ang was worried about that for me too so she didn’t make tons of plans for us. We spent a lot of time lounging around in sweats, sleeping in, watching tv, and then venturing out if we felt like it.
It ended up being SUCH a relief to me, because even though I didn’t feel 100% it was amazing how much better I felt getting tons of rest, not having to fix meals, and not chasing after the almost 4 year old.
Anyway, the main reason for my trip out was to celebrate Angie’s pregnancy! We have prayed for this to happen for many years and we have cried together many, many times over endless months of disappointment. And now here we both are, answered prayers. Such a shock and over abundant blessing. So, so thankful.
And one last super special treat before heading home! I got to have breakfast with the lovely Jess from Being Mrs. Beer! She is in Virginia and hopped up to Panera before I headed to the airport for a quick little breakfast sesh. She was absolutely lovely and wonderful and totally gracious even while I looked and felt like death. She championed me on to finish my bagel, which, I totally couldn’t. But I put forth a good effort anyway!
My flight returned Sunday night and the original plan was to come straight back to Joplin. But, then my wonderful husband snagged some Royals playoff tickets for Monday night….which then got rained out….and moved to Tuesday. So we ended up staying in Kansas City until Wednesday morning and basically my entire week is ALL kinds of out of sorts.
You heard the Royals are going to the World Series, right? Cuz they SO ARE. 26 years of Kansas City Fandom is totally paying off. YESSSSS.
In other news, I have a Pinterest party to go to tonight, a busy weekend of honey do projects planned, my first OB appointment and heartbeat ultrasound on Monday(which had to be moved thanks to the playoff game. It’s all good), so I’ll be sure to keep y’all posted on all of that good stuff next week!
