Weekending in South Florida

Monday, June 26, 2017

This past weekend was just what the doctor ordered! Stephen and I have been going 110% lately and it's been stressful. Most of this is our fault from (me) planning too much but this trip came at a good time! Before I get into our trip, Friday, my co-worker an I threw a diapers and desserts party for 2 guys in our group whose wives are due very soon! Y'all. the amount of pregnant people in my group is out of control... we are now at 4 - the girl who threw the party with me is also super pregnant.

Anyways, we wanted to keep things small and simple since it was for guys so we got a conference room at the beginning of lunch, had a few sweet treats, had people bring a pack of diapers for each dad and then let them write funny things on diapers for those late night diaper changes. Y'all, those diapers were hysterical!!! With Stephen's help, I made a diaper cake for each dad and banners with their baby's name. It was a great little party and wasn't too baby shower-y for the guys ;)

My lovely co-host made these funny poop emoji cupcakes

The dad's showed up in legit the exact same shirt - totally not planned

After work, Stephen and I loaded up and headed down to South Florida to visit my BIL, SIL and niece. We thought Siena would be asleep when we got there but we were happy to see she was still awake - although, we totally messed up her sleeping because she was so excited to see us lol We hung out that night, caught up and played with Siena before going to bed. I have to say, at a little over 1.5 years, Siena is so much fun! She talks, understands what you ask and is so much fun to play with; however, everyone seems to say 3 years is the best age so I cannot wait to continue seeing her grow!

Anyways, Saturday we got up and the boys ran to Publix while Lauren, Siena and I hung out at the house. After breakfast, we got ready and headed to their community tennis courts for a quick round of tennis to warm up before the pool. We swam for a little before everyone got hungry and Siena needed a nap. Lauren and I ran out to pick up some BBQ for lunch (thank goodness I finished up the Bikini Series ;)).

Once we finished lunch, I decided to go lay out by the pool while the boys moved around some heavy items. After the boys finished and Siena woke up, they joined me pool side and we had a blast playing the rest of the afternoon. That evening, they had some friends over for a delicious cookout and fun baby time.

Sunday we got up and spent a little time with them before heading home. We had a lot to get caught up on so we skipped church with them so we could get home. Thankfully, I was able to get some orders done, do laundry and get things ready for the week.

I'm hoping this week won't be as stressful but we'll see ;) We're getting ready for our beach vacation this weekend - I can't wait! I hope everyone had a great weekend - linking up with Biana.
