A weekend Away


Pin It
A few weekends ago Mark and I visited some friends of ours in TN.  Mark has been friends with Joe since elem. school and he was in our wedding. It's always such a blessing when your friends get married and the "4-some" all gets along. We always have such a great time together.
(They took us to a super fun restaurant with amazing food and even better milkshakes!)
 

We loaded up the car early Friday morning and took the kids to Maw Maw and Paw Paws house. I was so excited to spend 48 hours with just my Mr. and some friends.* I don't want to get back on my soapbox about how important "alone" time is to Mark and I. How important the example we want to set for our children is...how important it is that they see us trust our parent's/family is...my prayer is Mark and I set an example on how to treat our parent's so our kids will someday treat us the same way. Ok...off my soap box*

We got to TN in the afternoon on Friday. Mark and I had an early dinner and then shopped! It was so fun to just hang out together and not have to be pushing a stroller. LOL! We just walked at our own pace and visited lots of fun stores. We checked into the hotel with the plans to get ready and head out for dessert/drinks but we never made it. We checked in and started watching t.v., got tired, ordered pizza, and slept an entire night WITHOUT waking up! It was BLISS!!!!

We got up Saturday morning and had breakfast. We were only about 20 mins. from our friends. We got there mid-morning. They have a brand new baby boy...I for sure had some good snuggle time with that little man! I shared a little with Mark. Ha!


           
We just hung out and spent time together that afternoon. They took  us to a great returant just a few mins. away for an early dinner. Later that night the guys headed to a "guy diaper shower" for Joe. (fun sidenote* another close friend of Mark and Joe's from STL was in Nashville that same weekend recording an album) It was so random and fun that they all got to attend together!
Leigh and I got to spend time together. It was great to chat and catch up. We talked "mommy" too! LOL! Sunday morning we got up and headed home early. We missed our little's for sure!!! It was a great time spent with friends but it was nice to be with them again. They had a great time with Maw Maw and Paw Paw too!!
Thanks Joe and Leigh for having us! We can't wait to do it again. ;)
