weekend update

Beau got off early and we had our typical pizza and a movie night. this time we watched the bourne legacy and it was actually kind of good ;)

this was the best day i've had all year. the day started off with a cuddley morning with my guys, and there really is no better way to start my day than that. 

after Owen's 2hr morning nap we headed out to run some errands and grab a quick lunch at the mall. O is so funny at the mall, he just stares wide-eyed at everything around him. there's just so much to take in!
while we were there i talked Beau into letting me go shopping at F21. my parents had given me a gift card for christmas and i was just itching to spend it. i ended up with a bunch of cute new clothes and a pair of earrings. it felt so good to buy something for myself since i hadn't bought anything except maternity clothes in over a year!

since it was such a gorgeous day, we decided to go to the park after we finished our errands. it was O's first time at a playground and he, again, was wide-eyed taking everything in. we put him in the swing and at first he was a little apprehensive but it didn't take long for him to start loving it. he would kick his feet and squeal every time the swing went back. so sweet!
the park we went to has a skate park, so we walked over to watch the skateboarders doing their tricks. O would follow them as they went back and forth.
after the skate park we walked over to the library to check out some books. 

on our way back to the car we saw a big group of Luke's friends in the park pavilion. they had all gotten together to write letters to Luke! it was so awesome to see how much love and support my brother has. 
when we got home i had gotten a letter from Luke. it was so wonderful to hear from him and know that he is doing alright. after reading his letter it was like a weight was lifted off my heart!

while i put Owen to sleep, Beau grilled dinner. when dinner he said he wanted to eat outside because it was such a nice night. when i went out this is what i found!

i have the best husband! 
he even made a vegetarian meal because i'm giving up meat until Luke is free. 

sunday started early with Owen waking up (ready to play) at 6am. 

 the rest of the day was typical sunday stuff. we went to mass and then hung out around the house. Beau made sure everything was ready for his first day at the police academy and i made him flashcards for all the codes, signals, and 10-codes he has to memorize.

overall it was a really great weekend.
i hope everyone else had a good weekend!


  1. I hate shopping for myself for some reason, but nothing felt better than the first shopping trip after maternity clothes. It is like the best feeling EVER, I don't know why, haha! Sounds like you had a great weekend!

    1. I know! It was the best feeling to be putting on NEW non-maternity clothes. It's like I finally felt like a regular woman again, not just Owen's momma.

  2. Your little boy is the cutest!
