miscellany monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

Monday.  Seems to always come too soon.  But I have some great randoms to share with all of you to kick off the week.  So let's get on down to business!

{ONE}  The whole family packed up (okay, I did all of the packing) and headed to Kentucky for the weekend.  My husband's 20th reunion was Saturday and he was thrilled to get back & see a few of his best friends that were also going to be in town.

{TWO}  I loved seeing my parents and my precious 96 year old great-grandmother.  My kids were also very happy to see them.  I enjoyed Friday night with them while Mike enjoyed a night out with his best buddies.  

{THREE}  Saturday before the reunion, we hung out by our friends' pool most of the day and it was heaven!  The kids stayed behind at my parents' house and that part was bittersweet for me.  Mike and I enjoyed our time together and with our friends, but it was my first night away from my baby girl.  Of course, she did just fine.  

{FOUR}  Saturday night, Mike and I had a great time and I literally laughed til I cried and my insides hurt.  I have been sore for two days from laughing.  It was the best feeling in the world.  Mike and I truly forgot how badly we missed our friends back home.  We had the BEST TIME and have some of the BEST FRIENDS in the world!  I was also reminded that I'm not 18 anymore and staying up until 3AM is not the best idea I've had in a while - especially since we had to pick up our kids early the next morning to bring them back to swim as promised.  

{FIVE}  Sunday, we all picked up our kids and spent the day by the pool swimming and just enjoying all our families.  We got home late last night because none of us wanted it to end.  But back to reality.  Laundry, here I come.

    Sounds like a wonderful weekend. And laundry is calling my name, especially since I have to back for a week and everything is still dirty. Happy Monday!

    It sounds like such a lovely weekend! I love it when I laugh so hard that it hurts and my stomach gets sore. That's how you know that you are in amazing company because you can only relax that much when you are surrounded by friendly and loving people.

    Have a blessed day,

    I love fun nights with friends! I too spent Saturday night with old friends and had a ball, and I too stayed up WAY too late. Saturday was a hard day with the kids with a sleepy mommy!

    And I agree...Monday comes way too soon sometimes:)

    WOW that sounds like an AWESOME weekend!!! Yeah, I stayed up super-late last new-years. It was SO not worth it. So glad you had a good time! It's wonderful to laugh until you hurt. It does a body good. :)

    It's always bittersweet to leave your kids behind...especially for the first time! But it's good for you, too!
