What a greaaaaaat week we had!
My best friend, the love of my love, my other half and the best Dada this side of the Mississippi turned the big 3-0 on Sunday. He was having a hard time with the idea of leaving his 20's and I wanted him to see how awesome his 30's would be. Besides, isn't it weird to share a decade as a daddy with a throwing up 21 year old ;) It's time to realize 30 is the new 20 and we couldn't have been more excited to shower him in love and surprises!!
Last Friday, Josh's mama was scheduled to fly in. Josh started to suspect something was up (I bought Josh's mom her favorite yogurt ahead of time and he suspected something) but he was still shocked when I went to pick up "lunch" and returned with his mama!! After Layla woke up from her nap, she was equally as excited and thus began the weekend of fun. I went for a mommy afternoon to get my eyebrows waxed and a mani/pedi (holy moly. I opted for the deluxe extended massage pedicure and I'm hooked). Later that night we went for dinner at Cheesecake Factory - always yummy!! The Olympics started and I passed our shortly after.

Monday, I didn't feel good (again) but I managed to wake up and head to Costco with Lisa & Layla. Home for naps, then we went out again to the mall -- I met the nicest mama there and I really wish I got her number. She had the cutest little girl (1 month younger then Layla) and she recently moved to the area. I regret not getting her number and I'm hoping to find her at the mall again (I'm so weird) - mama friends are hard to find!! ANYWHOOOOO.. we shopped a bit (this weekend Layla got her first pair of sneakers from Stride Rite and the cutest outfit from Baby Gap, thanks Grandma!!!). Monday night, Josh's mama cooked yummy spaghetti and meatballs. (OK now I see why I gained 2.8 pounds this week. I ate. A lot.)
Tuesday, Josh's mama left. :( We hate when she has to go... but she'll be back in August, September AND November.. wahooooooooo!!!! After the airport, Layla & I took naps then went to lunch with my amazing neighbor Deni... it was our first lunch out together and definitely not our last. I'm SO excited to have a neighbor I love and she happens to be pregnant, due 4 days before me!!! :) :)
SO that's that.... we had a great week. Layla is doing amazingggggg. NEW words everyday. I can't wait to write her 14 month update next week because I think this past month has been her biggest month of growth yet... walking, talking, a whole new little girl!!!
Until then, ta ta and cheers to hopefully feeling better sooooooon!!!
|Pretty. And serious.|
