Monday Monday!

Wow! What a wonderful weekend I had! I was spoiled absolutely rotten by my family and friends. Thank you all so much for the emails, cards and gifts. I am so very fortunate to have each of you in my life.

My sweet-tart husband took me to the Melting Pot for dinner on Friday night for a much needed grown up night. It was sooooo wonderful. I love that restaurant so much! I loved spending the few hours there with him even more. Thank you for babysitting, Wes. That was so sweet!

Saturday morning, Sydney and I got an early start. We finished packing, took baths, had a bowl of cereal and headed to Mom and Tom's for the remainder of the weekend. Mom, Sydney and I had lunch at Carlos O'Kelly's, another huge favorite. Then we skipped over to the Tarjay to spend a gift card a friend gave me. By the time we got there, little Syd had fallen asleep so, we went through the Starbucks drive thru and parked the car. We talked until she woke up. We spent nearly two hours in the car just talking. I loved it!

We managed to make it into the Target and I found some warm pjs for my hospital bag. I only had a few pair and I keep taking them out of the bag. I figured it defeated the purpose and I should buy a few more sets. :) I love pjs anyway.

We headed home and mom made me the BEST dinner ever (ham rolls continental and chocolate mousse pie). It was wonderful!!! There is always something about mom's cooking. Must be the love! Next, I opened my gifts from them. First, a cute little mug filled with vanilla lotion and hot chocolate. YUM! Next, a BEAUTIFUL jewelry armoire! I have been wanting one for quite some time and it is so beautiful. It has so many neat little features. I hope to have many many more years to fill it, but I've got a pretty good head start.

Yesterday, I had lunch with mom and Tom. Then, we went to visit my grandparents. Since I am now officially sequestered to my home area, I wanted to visit them before Christmas. I'm glad we made it.

The weekend went by so fast, but they always do.

Today, my sister is meeting me for lunch! What a way to start the week!

I hope everyone has a great day!
