Weekend in Review

It has been a busy, delightful weekend around here...and the best part is that it's not even over yet! I love it when the world shuts down on Monday because I get Tony and Sam home and we get a shorter rest-of-the-week to boot.

Late Friday night Megan came up to spend the night with us. We all got to play and have naps on Satuday and Megs, Josh and I got a little window shopping in while Tony and the two big kids went to the gym. Megs was kind enough to watch the kids on Saturday evening while Tony and I went to Red Lobster for dinner to celebrate Valentine's Day (thanks Becky & Russ for the gift card). Then church and Hteachers on Sunday. Then Sunday evening, Tony got me a hotel room at TLF to spend the night ALL BY MYSELF. I read, watched TV in bed, slept in, and tried to fight off a nasty cold that Anna was kind enough to share with me. Needless to say, I'm a bit behind in normal life, which includes reading my favorite blogs and updating my own blog. I did come across some cool ideas this morning in my meanderings before I returned home, so stay tuned.

And in other news, Cocoa at Chocolate On My Cranium was kind enough to pass along an award to me...she is a sweetheart and one of the friends I have made exclusively through blogging. She makes having seven well adjusted and sweet children and an ordered household look effortless. I'll be passing the love along soon.

What a fun weekend you had! And how great is Tony to send you to a hotel by yourself where you didn't have to share the remote!!

I've missed you- we HAVE got to get a day scheduled to get together!

Sounds like a fabulous weekend! I love long weekends, too. I love the idea of a motel room all to yourself!

Your husband is so awesome to have done that for you! I think we all need some time to ourselves just to get rejuvenated. I am so glad that you were able to get some rest and able to relax. How did the enrichment go? Sorry I missed it.

I like that everyone keeps saying how wonderful Tony is...it's a good thing you didn't mention in your blog that after I slaved away babysitting your kids, Tony gave me the worst scare of my LIFE!!! It was fun to come and visit and I'm glad you got to have a relaxing night alone!!!
