Our Sweetie's Back!

Our little monster came home today!  She had a great time visiting her great, great aunt and uncle, and I know she's going to be talking about them for the next few days!  While she was there, my mother- and father-in-law took her to one of her favorite places -- a children's museum.  She also saw her first movie, the IMAX film Born to Be Wild 3D.  I was super curious to know how that went because I didn't feel like she was ready for a theater.  They said she did great! 

My father-in-law always does a great job of texting me pics when she's with them.  Here are a few from the Marbles Kid's Museum.


I think it's hilarious that she's getting the bread out of the oven with the uncovered hand. Ha! 



She loves this stuff!

Danny and his sister found this cool app that tracks flights in realtime, so they watched my MIL, FIL, and Morgan en route to Raleigh on Saturday morning.  I installed it so I could watch them come in today.  Pretty neat.


So what did I do with all that free time?  It was mostly play and little work (yay me).  I finally watched the last few episodes of my TV shows. I slept an hour later every morning and even went to bed early one night.  I mopped all my floors yesterday after work and ate out with my hubby a few times (thanks, Groupon and Living Social). I also started packing up my classroom at work and put new bedding on Morgan's bed.  Oh, and I shopped a little. 

Honestly, I hate shopping.  Like, a lot.  But I was in need of new summer dresses. I've been wearing the same few for the last year or two (and honestly, I can't fit some of them anymore -- gotta start eating better).  I mostly love maxi dresses because they're slimming and easy, but I don't like spaghetti strap dresses.  And every maxi dress I found was spaghetti (or strapless).  So I ended up going with shorter dresses.  Cotton.  Washable.  Loose.  Nothing fancy.  I have a very basic sense of fashion (translation: I have no sense of fashion), so you won't see me in many trends.  I did try on a semi-trendy look:  the belted dress.

I didn't buy it.  I just tried it on because I was waiting for some of Morgan's items to be monogrammed and I got bored. If I ever do get a sense of fashion, it won't be a straight-out-of-the-store look.  Kendi Everyday (one of my favorite blogs of all time) - now that's what I consider fashion.

Well, I should really be heading to bed now.  It took my child FOREVER to go to sleep tonight -- she does that sometimes after a trip -- so I'm a little beat from trying to make her go to sleep.  My life is back to normal again! :)  I love it.

I hope everyone's having a great week.  I'm praying for those who lost homes, jobs, and loved ones in the recent tornadoes.  I'll tell you this: I grew up here in the South where you see tornado warning and watches every year. So I'd never been afraid of them.  Now?  Terrified.  The recent devastation has really rattled me.  And we're just reaching the peak of tornado season.  Anyway, praying the rest of this season goes by with no more devastation. 

Hope everyone has a great week (and thanks, Sweetie Baby's Custom Blog Design, for the new look)!
