Monday, why you come so soon?

Looking back at my photos from the weekend, I'm sensing a few themes...

Red-- like our outfits as we cheered on the Wolfpack and like it's finally red cup time at Starbucks

Babies-- as in, we finally got to go meet precious Anna Faith  AND we got some good Teagan-time in 

Friends-- meaning it's an automatic win when you get to catch up with a friend from high school, friends from college, and post-college friends ALL in the same day :)

And, I'm pretty sure I'd be OK if every weekend was just like this!

Friday night was super relaxing (aka jammies by 5pm & a 30 Rock marathon) because we knew we were packing a lot into our Saturday.

We were so excited to get to visit one of my high school besties, Ally, her hubby, Steve, and their beautiful baby girl, Anna Faith on Saturday morning. Anna Faith made her way into the world just three weeks ago, and I am still a little in disbelief that we're old enough to be having babies. I mean it feels like just yesterday that Ally and I were playing on our travel softball team in middle school. Time please slow down! Ally and Steve seem to be rocking this new parent thing, and Anna Faith was on her best behavior, so I got to feed her and hold her while she slept. I can't wait to get back over there for more Anna Faith time and girl talk with Ally (aka real talk) about the whole shebang. Eeek!

My parents were kind enough to share their NC State vs. GA-Tech tickets with us, and we had a fun time visiting with them at the game despite a not-so stellar performance by the pack. Poor Kyle was so not pleased.

After the game, two of my favorite college friends, Emily and Anna, dropped by a basket of goodies, which was beyond thoughtful and such a sweet surprise. Their card said, "The Best is Yet to Come," and it is truly starting to feel that way. Things are looking up, and it is such a relief that my positive thinking is starting to come more naturally again.

And, as if the day had not already been full of happy things, we got to end the evening hanging out with some of our best friends, the O'Hares. One of my favorite things about hanging out with them at night is when we get to help with Teagan's bedtime routine. We do bath, bottle, and story time, and it truly warms my heart--especially the story time, when all 4 of us do Teagan's read-aloud. It has been so much fun watching that precious little nugget grow--I can't believe she's already 8 months old!

Sunday was what Sunday usually is around our house--laundry day, grocery day, do other productive things-day, which was completely fine after such a lovely Saturday.

First of the season!

I think I'm ready to quit my job and become a professional weekender. Who's with me!?


  1. Yes, sign me up for that job when you find it! :-)

  2. Me me me!! I live for weekends!! Glad things are looking up! And PS I don't know if I mentioned that I love the new blog design. I usually read on my phone so I don't see it much but it's so gorgeous & fancy!
