Brain Dump

We are headed to IKEA as I am writing this post. IKEA weekends always put into perspective how amazing our family is. It's nice to be reminded of this once a month. It seems every 4 weeks is when I need this weekend. It works out so nice! ;) My dad and Mark chatting in the front seat catching up on life in the past 4 weeks. I am able to lay down in the back seat and try to catch a little extra shut eye (since I got 1 hr. of sleep due to our little princess). Then there is my mom, thank the Lord for my mom...she stays back with the kids. What a chore for a g-ma right?!?! Everyone always says I get to see my family a lot-and I do but this weekend is always special. I get to sit in the evening and watch tv with them, my mom gets to babysit, I get to spend time with my dad, and the list goes on. Even though I see them a lot those are the small things that we don't get because they are 2 hours away. It's nice to know every 4 weeks we get it. I am so thankful for my parents. What an amazing example they have given me....

  1. I love reading your blog. You are an inspiration to at home moms and just people in general! I was a very satisfied Expedite STL customer and then found your blog. From an older mom (who is now in the midst of planning wedding number #2 (3 daughters, one more wedding to go!) who was a stay at home mom, they grow up so fast and you never get that time back. Enjoy!
