A packed out weekend for the books!
|Caroline’s Biggest Fan Shirt by Pearce Reed Designs|
Most notably, Caroline started soccer shots! We have been so excited for our very first soccer season. I set my expectations pretty low in terms of Caroline’s participation and was pleasantly surprised that she actually cared more about the game than just collecting the cones on the field. Don’t get me wrong, she definitely had fun kicking cones over, stacking them on her feet, wearing them on her head, running across the field to the other team’s games, and more. But I was shocked that she wasn’t there just for the sticker and was really in to following her coaches directions.
Meanwhile Thomas refused to hang out on the sidelines and sprinted into the game every opportunity he could find. So we pretty much are getting a buy one get one free out of this year’s soccer registration.
Cheering for a fun first soccer “game.”
Afterwards we went to IHOP at Caroline’s request.
Saturday night we had an epic mamas night out! For Valentine’s Day, Matt and three other husbands planned a surprise evening out for us. They ironed out the date, reservation and all the details over their weekly trivia night. On V-Day we each got a card announcing our surprise. It was a solid gift.
We had dinner at Dogwood Southern Table,
one of my favorite restaurants. We started with four appetizers and
several rounds of cocktails before ordering our entrees. The food was
incredible, per usual.
The boys instructed us not to rush home and we took those orders very seriously. So after dinner we walked next door to Corkbuzz, a swanky wine bar, for a few bottles of sauvignon blanc.
And closed the place down. It was seriously the most fun night out with my mama friends and we all agreed our husbands won “husbands of the year” awards for being so thoughtful.
On Sunday morning we attended a petting zoo birthday party and then relaxed the rest of the day.
