Last I left off, I was headed down to my SIL's house while Stephen was meeting the guys for his brother's 30th birthday party weekend in Okeechobee. While the guys roughed it in the hot FL heat, Lauren and I enjoyed ourselves some AC and the pool! I arrived on Friday evening, just in time for dinner. The rest of the night, we caught up and played with my niece, Siena.
I ended up waking up super early Saturday (go figure) and enjoyed watching some cable TV before joining Lauren and Siena once they woke up. Then, we headed out to one of Lauren's friends community pools and spent some time there before making a quick Target run. That afternoon, we worked on putting all the clothes Siena grew out of into space bags before Lauren's friends came over for girls night. We loaded up and headed out to get some Mexican food before coming home and playing some games. After the girls left, Lauren and I watched The Devil Wears Prada while chit chatting.
Seriously, how cute is Siena!?
Helping us pack away her clothes ;)
Sunday, we rallied and headed to church (we sat in the cry room which was PACKED and a whole new experience for me lol). After church, we came back to the house, had leftovers, went on a quick walk and then I headed out to meet Stephen. After picking Stephen up and getting home, I started to not feel good at all. I ended up being up all night long - the Mexican leftovers did not work out too well for me. Stephen had Monday off from work so I ended up taking a half day which was so needed.
I was trying to keep Siena entertained with Snapchat before she realized Lauren had run to the car lol Then I found out that the cry room doesn't have tinted glass... oops
Thankfully, Monday night I was feeling slightly better so I packed myself up for my business trip to Atlanta. Tuesday, I headed up to Atlanta (not before Southwest completely cancelled my flight) and I was able to see our close family friends real quick after work. The business trip was really successful and we got a lot done!
After work one night, I was able to hop over to The Mall of GA to look for some Converses. I've been thinking about getting some for my birthday for a little while now but wanted to make sure that my feet didn't look like clown feet in them. I wasn't sold on the regular Converses but I tried on the Shoreline's and I loved them! They're so comfy, my feet don't look as long/clowny and the loose laces are the perfect touch! My only problem was deciding between the white ones and the grey ones. I ended up picking the white ones because I'll have more to wear them with and I'm worried I'll regret not getting those.
Saturday, my mom got us these amazing cream cheese muffins for breakfast and then I worked on cleaning out my college stuff with my dad. They were able to sell a lot of my old textbooks to a used bookstore and I threw out all my spirals and folders that I kept from my engineering classes - so nerve wrecking throwing all of that out, but when am I going to ever look at them? Afterwards, we headed out to some local trails for a quick walk then scooted over to their huge used bookstore to sell my textbooks and to browse. I ended up getting a few grilling books, a few cookbooks (one really cool, old Charleston one!) and The 5 Love Languages.
After all of that excitement, I came home and crashed - it felt so good to get a nap in! That night we were celebrating Father's Day early as well as my birthday early so my parents made a delicious dinner (which I got way too full way too fast and didn't get to eat much of it ;/) and then we relaxed until it was time for bed.
My parents' old deck was falling apart so they're building a new one - can't wait to enjoy it at Thanksgiving!!
Sunday morning, I got ready and headed back to Atlanta for my flight while my parents headed to church. We had to get one last Father's Day selfie :) Thankfully, my flight was uneventful and I was so happy to get home to Stephen again!
The past few days I've been super busy trying to get everything caught up which is always fun to do after work ;) On Sunday, we also celebrated 1 year of being in our house! I can't believe it's been a full year! I'm planning on doing a house update but I've got to get it cleaned (hopefully this weekend).
Today, we're getting our landscaping redone (if the guys ever show up) and Stephen's gearing up for another launch on Friday! Thankfully, we'll be in town the next few weekends so hopefully things slow down.
Linking up with Jessi.
