The best kind of weekend.

"How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard."
A.A. Milne


That quote explains exactly how I feel right now to a "T."  Couldn't have said it better myself.

It's difficult to really express the weekend I just had.  If you get to see your family on a consistent basis, you may think I'm a total freak for thinking I had the best weekend when I did a whole lot of nothing, but got to do it with the people I love most.

Prior to last Tuesday I hadn't seen my parents since July.  That's a long time!  Especially when one is incubating a baby...there is a lot of growth in those months!  

Last Tuesday I got a wild hair and despite promising myself I wouldn't miss a day of school before baby, I decided to leave at 3:00 and head to VA to spend the night with mom and dad.  I found someone to cover my late bus duty, our ball game was cancelled so I didn't have ball game duty, and I took the next day off work.  It was worth every second of vacation time I used.

We literally did a whole lot of nothing on Wednesday, but we did it together.

We ate a big breakfast, scoped out Goodwill, and went through 2 huge garbage bags full of baby clothes mom purchased for Baby G!  They are adorable.  He is so spoiled already.  Obviously mom has the same thrifting gene I do - wonder where I got that from!

Over the weekend, hubby and I went back up to spend the weekend with them at the campground and we did a lot of sitting around the campfire, laughing, and making new memories together.

It was a bombDOTcom weekend.

  2. Weekends with family are always the best, even if you do nothing. I see my parents often, but it's always hard to say goodbye.

  3. Sounds like a perfect weekend spent with loved ones. I miss my mom, she's all the way in Italy so I def don't get to see her as often as I'd like.
