A Busy Week

Well. That was a nice little unintended bloggy break.

The week's summary:

The concert and girlie getaway were awesome (except the part where I FORGOT my CAMERA!). Sarah and I had an absolute blast and laughed nonstop for two days. Shopping was fun, dinner at Olive Garden was scrumptious, and the concert was fabulous. We really weren't expecting much from the concert seeing how our musical taste has definitely grown and changed since our New Kids obsession back in the day, but it was a great concert. Really! I was so impressed. We did a lot of screaming like teenagers (Hey, we were in the 11th row! It was exciting!), dancing, rushing the stage like a bunch of loonies, a bit of drooling (wow. they are much better looking than they used to be), and then some more screaming. So much screaming that Sarah woke up the next day with a migraine. Oops. Still, she swore it was all worth it. What a sport!

It felt like I had been gone for a week. I was very happy to see the hubby and my sweet boys and they were all happy to see me too. Bonus! We rounded out the week nicely with decorating our Easter eggs, and lots of food at the grandmas' houses.
But my favorite part of the weekend had to be seeing my little men all dressed up.
Now that is a good looking group of fellas, if I do say so myself.

Hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend, and are able to catch up on some sleep (we aren't the only sleep deprived family after this weekend, are we?) this week.

Those little boys are just scrumptious. I love the tiny little ties. So cute.

It's really sad that we've gotten to the age where too much exertion = migraine. I'm there, too.

Look at all of those handsome men! Love it!

And, I'm totally sleep deprived. Apparently 6 month olds like to sleep in their beds more than grandma's!

Oh my goodness! They are so handsome!

Sounds like the concert was awesome. 11th row? That's nearly sweat flinging distance :)

Debbie in CA : ) said...

My dear friend,

I know you have jillions of people pausing to comment on how adorable those boys are, so I'll just get in line and be a jillion + 1!! They are SO CUUUUTE! ; D

You're doing such a good job of mommying and it shows in their smiles wrapped in a smiling Daddy's loving arms. Can't wait to see a speck of pink join the club.

Blessing to you!

Karen MEG said...

Oh look at your little men, so adorable!
Glad you had a nice little break, even if the NKOTB don't have the exact same effect anymore. It's funny, I didn't like them first time around, but this time I'm getting into their funkier edge. Maybe I'm getting old.

Glad you had a great Easter!

Maggie's Mind said...

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
