**Notice something new around here? A brand new and shiny design! I’ve had the graphics in my inbox since JANUARY but PA school kicked my booty and I just got around to the facelift. Thanks to Maria from Craft Crazy Mom for the prettiness!
Good morning friends! Spring break is officially over and I am back at it for my second quarter of PA school this morning. The break went by too quickly but it was full of fun and memories with my family. We ended it on a high note with a fun-filled weekend too!
Saturday morning Chris and I were up bright and early for the Big Nasty Mud Run. I am so thankful that I am married to a man who cares as much about fitness as I do! Gearing up for 5 dirty miles sounds like a pretty perfect date to me 😉 Expect a full recap of the race tomorrow but Chris and I ran it together and had a blast. He was a gem before the race and helped me duct tape my shoes so I wouldn’t lose them. I told you he was a keeper.
After a couple of showers and a few chores it was time to head to the airport to pick up Chris’ younger brother Brian. Brian serves in the Army too and is getting stationed abroad so he came out for a quick visit to see us and the girls before heading out. We started our night in downtown Savannah sitting outside at the Social Club, drinking Bud Light Limes, and munching on guacamole before meeting some of my friends at Wild Wings Cafe. #ParentsGoneWild
Don’t worry though – we were home by 10:30 PM. Crazy, I know. Bryn surprised us all and blessed me on my last Saturday night by sleeping from 10:30PM-7:15AM! Holy cow. I was up a few times in middle of the night making sure she was alive because she hadn’t slept that length of time yet. Some things never change as a mom. Once we were all up for the day we took Brian to our favorite weekend breakfast joint. Emmalyne sure was happy to get some scrambled eggs and waffle!
Unfortunately reality set in after breakfast and I headed to the local coffee shop to do some light reading. And by light reading it might as well have been in hieroglyphics for what I got out of it. After staring at it for a few hours I decided to call it a morning and wait until lecture and then re-read it again. Oh pharmacology … I am not sure how I feel about you yet.
The rest of the day was spent getting ready for another week. I prepped our food for this week, Chris did laundry, and we hung out as a family. It ended perfectly by getting to snuggle by little peanut to sleep.
I hope your Monday is fantastic and that you had a great weekend. See you guys tomorrow with my recap of the Big Nasty Mud Run
