Will Travel for BOFF and Baby!

Morning, dear friends. How are you this Monday? I'm doing pretty well, just a bit sleepy from a late night flight Sunday. In case you missed it, I flew to Ft. Worth to attend my beautiful BOFF's baby shower. I was so thrilled I was able to join her and her friends in the celebration of baby Evelyn. It was a wonderful weekend, I loved seeing my lovely BOFF and her sweet baby bump. I even was able to feel pretty girl kick, which was precious. I'm so sad the weekend is over, because it truly was a fabulous weekend of joy, fun and celebration.

This weekend I…

Caught a late night flight to the Ft. Worth area.

MIssed my airplane buddy like I never expected. It was kind of weird how out of sorts I felt without Le Husband with me in the airport. I honestly couldn't tell you the last time I flew alone.


Spent the flight watching Planes: Fire and Rescue while drinking wine. Best way to keep from being too anxious while flying solo.

Woke up Saturday morning, at breakfast and then headed out to watch a twirling competition. It was so much fun watching twirling since it was such a big part of Lynn's life. I was completely taken in by the talent of all the girls and of course the sparkles. So many sparkles.
 

Loved this lil girl, she was one of the cutest ones out there.

Came home and took a nap to a crazy Lifetime movie. #affairkidnappingandcrazies

Ate a delicious Valentine's Day dinner of Pei Way with Lynn and J. It was so perfect and we enjoyed Bridesmaids while we ate.

 Loved on these lil girls. #lovethosepuppies

Missed my true love and Valentine.

Hit the hay because Sunday was early church. Woke up for church, loved the message then went to a delicious brunch.

Came home, watched more Lifetime then changed for the baby shower.

Went to the host's home and helped set up. She did an amazing job with the decor and the drinks.


Drank lavender lemonade, champs while munching on mini sandwiches, bundtinis, and pita chips with dip.


Loved on Lynn while she opened her gifts. Oohhed and ahhed over the darling baby clothes.


Enjoyed meeting more of her dear friends and catching up with those I met at the wedding. Helped clean up and then headed back home.

Headed to the airport, enjoyed Precheck, lucked into a row by myself, met the sweetest flight attendant and watched How to Train Your Dragon 2 on the flight.

Landed safely, kissed Le Husband and passed out at home.

How was your weekend?

What a great weekend!! I'm pretty sure you need to fly with my husband from now on. He's totally into watching kid movies and I always make fun of him. {In a loving way, of course!} That baby shower looks perfect! Hope the start to your week is great!

Jessica said...

Yay for a fabulous weekend with the sweet mama-to-be! So fun! Loving that you got to be there to support Lynn and Evie. The shower looks like it was absolutely adorable - right down to the lavender lemonade:) And precious Lynn deserved to be loved on with some sweet gifts for baby. Perfect weekend for sure. Glad you made it back safely to your Valentine:)

Flying solo couldn't have been too bad if you got to watch a fun movie & drink a little wine while doing so!

Oh my gosh, you are SO cute! I already know how well you and I get along, but you and Mia would be BEST friends! We got her the planes movie for Christmas because she is OBSESSED with "airtrains!!" and helicopters, ha ha! Cutest movie! And we got her Dragons 2 for Valentines because she is obsessed with "dragons" and asks for it every day, ha ha! Now we can change it up between the first and second movie! If the second part of your title rings true, come to Arizona this summer and visit! ;) What a wonderful weekend celebrating your BOFF and baby! Such an exciting time for everyone! I love baby celebrating! My SIL just announced her pregnancy and I can't wait to be an aunt for the first time on my side of the family, yay!
Glad you made it home safely to your love!
