Hii! Yeah, so I’ve not been the best at keeping up with this this blog. I have no excuse, just haven’t been in the blogging mood lately. I go through these phases every once in a while. Sorry.
Anyway, last weekend we flew up to CT. Stu had to be in NYC for work Monday- Wednesday, so Zach and I tagged along and stayed in CT at my dad’s place. The night before our flight, Stu upgraded our tickets to first class. The difference in price was $160 and to us it was worth every penny. When you’re flying with a 6 month old, every inch of extra leg space counts. Zach did great (again.) We’ve got a superstar flier on our hands folks!
"I love planes!"
My sister came down from Boston to see “the critter” (that is what she calls Zach.) After eating my weight in pizza & ice cream, followed by two glasses of wine, we got strait up stupid.
Sunday night we celebrated Nana’s 90th birthday at a cute restaurant called Chips Pub.
The waitstaff brought out ice cream and sang Happy Birthday.
Nan loves her ice cream
Not bad for 90, ay??
My two favorite guys
Notice the spit up in Stu’s sweater? Spit up stains are an every day staple. At any given moment I could have at least two random stains on me. I’ve learned to not sweat it… and to always have an extra bottle of Dreft.
Zach is chillin' with Auntie Lindsay and uncle Brandon
I had to post this picture to show you my hair after using Chaz Dean’s Wen shampoo. I watched a few beauty tutorials on you tube about this stuff and they were enough to convince me to order a bottle. My hair definitely feels healthier and looks super shiny. Have you ever hear of Wen?
On Thursday Brandon and I road tripped it down to PA to check up on our house (still not sold.) I was sad to see it empty and cold. I’m shocked we haven’t had an offer on it. It’s a gorgeous house in move in condition. I think it’s time I call our realtor and have her start up weekly open houses. We have to sell soon. Ugh! After my
sob fest walk through, it was time for dinner with my Philly besties. Seeing them was exactly what I needed.I felt like I had never left.
awesome dinner at Bone Fish Grill btw
Back in CT, my dad was loving up on Zach. So cute to see them together.
In the midst of all the madness, I made it a point to see my Madison besties too. We all met up for breakfast Friday morning with our kids. At one time it was just the five of us, nowadays it’s the five of us plus five kiddos. We are parents now. CRAZY!!!
We flew back Saturday and my mom (aka “Meems”) came with.
Zach was fascinated by the guys unloading the luggage. He loved watching the action,
Even though this was technically Zach’s second time flying, he never got his certificate the first time around so the flight attendants hooked him up.
Zach proceeded to eat his important document. He’s sprouting two pearly whites on the bottom. So exciting!! We don’t go anywhere without teething rings and extra bibs. This kid is a drooling machine.
Meems, aka Marzy, aka Mom is here until next Tuesday. You know what that means? Zach will be sporting a fohawk until she leaves. Meems is obsessed with giving Zach fohawks.
Zach was catching up on some Sesame Place episodes-which is another reason I feel so old. My son is watching the same shows I watched as a kid. OLD, old, old!
As much as I miss(ed) my friends and family, it’s nice to be back in Texas where it’s 70 and sunny.
P.S. Have you seen these beautious bars? Our church cafe had them, so for obvious reasons, we bought one. Deelish, but not nearly as sweet as the real “Zach Attack.”
Hope you’re having a great day so far. I’ll try to not disappear again.
