Weekend Away That Was All Play

Good morning and a happy Monday to all. I hope your weekend was wonderful and Monday is being kind so far. Our weekend was a blur of motion as we headed to Cincinnati for a quick family visit. It will be our last visit until we move [!] and it was nice to hang with family for a few days. Now we are back cranking through the work week and time to get serious about packing up our apartment and finishing up planning our trip. 

This weekend I… 

… woke to snow bright and early before our flight. 

… enjoyed the luxury of the AA Admiral's club thanks to Le Husband's CC. #theonlywaytotravel

… practiced my Italian for our trip.

… laughed at my 1% fluency. 

… was majorly bummed when our delayed [mechanics] flight kept us from picking up nephew from school. 

… had a delicious lunch with Grandparents and loved surprising grandma.

… jumped in full swing to lego, beanie baby and wrestling time. 

… brought along our homemade tortilla recipe and created some delicious fish tacos for dinner. 



… snapped a bazillion pictures of our adorable second nephew. #ohmygoodnessthosecheeks

… woke up to the phone ringing at 730am because our nephew wanted us to join him for Saturday errands.

… got ready in 15 minutes and met them at the door.

… reveled in the smell of doughnuts at our second stop for the day.

… devoured my cinnamon toast crunch chocolate doughnut. #holysugarcoma

… took our second set of grandparents out to dinner at a delicious Cajun restaurant. #familyisthebest

… started up wrestling as soon as we got back home. 

… watched a little bit of Frozen and Despicable Me before dinner. #Ineededanap

… became a car aficionado after a lesson with lil man. #guesswhogotallthepinkcars

… ate a delicious dinner, drank some wine, played legos then went to bed as soon as the boys left. 

… passed out for eleven glorious hours and felt like a new person on Sunday morning. 

… packed up, helped make breakfast and got it one last play session before we left for the airport. 

… kissed and cuddled this lil face a million times before we left. 

… practiced some Italian on the plane, read and prepped my BODYPUMP playlist for Monday's class. 

Now I'm charging through Monday and looking forward to a quiet evening at home. How was your weekend?

What a great weekend trip to visit family! Those homemade tortillas (and donuts) look delicious! I've been kind of obsessed with duolingo, but I think I'm on 5% fluent and I really don't think I'm retaining anything. lol

Jen said...

I would love to learn another language, maybe one day!

Delayed flights make me seriously grumpy.! But then some beanie baby time could snap you right out of that.
