It's Tuesday, and I'm just getting a chance to wrap up my weekend. What a GREAT weekend it was. Sunday morning, Derek and I met some of my new besties at Mimi's Cafe for breakfast before we headed back home to Arkansas.
These are probably three of the sweetest people I have ever met in my life. I am so thankful Megan stopped by my blog that day just to say hi. It seems we clicked instantly, and then I met Lauren and Meagan. It was all the start of what I'm sure will be a wonderful friendship (and probably more road trips to Tennessee). Thank you again, girls, for all you did to raise money for autism in Evan's name. I don't think there are words to express how this has touched my heart.
Not only are these girls sweet and beautiful and hilarious, but there were equally sweet, handsome, and hilarious men there as well. We had so much fun meeting Web, David, Vance, and Dawson. Vance wasn't that crazy about me I don't think, but he was very comfortable with Derek. So, I just got some Vance sugar from the side without him really knowing it. Ha!
On the other hand, I think Dawson liked me. He would nuzzle down in my neck the instant I held him.
They are both so stinkin' cute I can hardly stand it!
If you are going on a road trip with your spouse anytime soon, I highly recommend this gadget Derek picked up before our trip. How wonderful it is to know where you are going and not have to...ahem..."ask for directions." Plus, this nice lady talks to you and tells you where to turn. It was an argument saver. Oh, I mean, life saver. :)
I started getting butterflies in my stomach when we saw this...
I could not wait to get home to my babies. I missed them terribly! Two nights is plenty for me to be away from them. They were SO happy we were home. Ella Grace had her arms up for me to hold her before I even opened the door, and Evan and Derek wasted no time wrestling in the floor. We hit the ground running taking them to the Jump Zone and out to eat. We were exhausted by the end of the night, but it was all worth it. I loved spending time with my husband, meeting my new sweet friends and their families, and loving on my kids when we got home. It was just perfect. A huge thank you to my mom who stayed with them while we were gone. She is such a wonderful mom to me and grandmother to her grandchildren. Thanks, Mom!
Here is a snippet of what EG and her Daddy were up to while Derek was supposed to be packing for our trip. As you can guess, I was gone on an errand hence the outfit she is wearing, the hairdo, and the fact that she is even listening to, much less dancing to Toby Keith's "Who's Your Daddy!!!" I'm telling you, there is no telling what kind of shenanigans go on here when I am out!
