Weekending in the Mountains!

I don’t normally post weekend recaps but the fact that Caroline is on the mend from her awful 3 day stomach bug and we were still able to break away for a little getaway to the mountains, I’d say it’s worth the post!

The original weekend plans were to leave early on Friday to meet Matt’s parents
at their new mountain home in Tryon, NC. We were really looking forward
to it but since Caroline still felt a bit crummy we decided to postpone
the trip until Saturday. So early the next morning we hit the road and
made it to the mountains early enough to enjoy a full day of lounging
around, snacking and taking a little trip into town for lunch and
shopping. Saturday night Matt and I snuck out for a low key pizza date night. It was perfect. And on Sunday we headed back home after breakfast to laundry, errands, grocery shopping and Cowfish bento boxes.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

    So cute! Love the idea of a selfie stick! Just to clarify, and I hope you don't mind, when I click on your link, if I choose to purchase, will you receive a commission? I don't see anywhere on your blog about affiliate links; so, I am assuming the answer is no, but wanted to check. It's no big deal, but I do like to make sure what I am getting into…hope you understand!

    What a wonderful weekend!! Selfie sticks are so great – I feel like we look ridiculous using it but it's so nice to have the memories 🙂

    Hi Christina,Just getting caught up on your news on baby #2! I know you had mentioned earlier about them being close in age…just chiming in on how great it is!!! I am a 28 year old momma to 6 year old twin boys (honeymoon babies!!! born exactly 9 months after our wedding day), a 5 year old boy, a 3.5 year old boy, a 9 month old boy, and I am due in 3 weeks with TWIN boys again…I know…7 boys!!!! The first set and last set are have a respective 10 month and 9.5 month age difference. Twins do run in our families, but this last set was; well, a HUGE surprise. Not to get into too much detail, but both times we had "double protected" ourselves, and things just happened. Our doctor also gave us the go ahead, and we just did not think me getting preggers would happen so quickly. We love all the chaos that comes with it. After the boys come, I think we are done. 7 under 7 is quite the handful but every day is an adventure! Enjoy!

    Dell Harper had that same Baby Boden coat (I loved it so much I got it 2 years in a row). so sad that she can't fit into the Baby Boden anymore. Especially that coat! ha!
