So last weekend off I went. I flew all by myslef...indulging in a drink I didn't have to share, and an orange that I peeled and ate all of; both things never happen when the kiddos are around. I also read a book the whole time!! I haven't flown by myslef since Dominik was born so while some may take the above mentioned activities as sarcastic comments...I'm being dead serious!! When I arrived my mom picked my up and we were on our way. Saturday was spent running errands and shopping. Without kids it is amazing how many stores you can run in and out of and how much you can accomplish!!
Saturday night was the party and boy was it a great one!! Brandi didn't know that I was in town nor that 6 of her best friends were in attendance at the party. We all got to hide in the Millers office and when she opened the door there she was in shock! So much fun!! The rest of the party was good food, great company, and fun all around. It was weird not constantly checking on my kids and again eating an entire meal without interruption and having to share. I sure love Brandi and am so happy that I could be here for the party!! She is such a great addition to our family, and certainly my big brothers better half!!!
Sunday was a relaxing day with only church, resting, and some light reading. My mom had Youth Standards night that night so I tagged along and helped her set up the refreshment table. The night was beautiful and once again I was amazed at my mom's many talents!! If only the wonderful evening could have continued into the next and final day of my trip. More deets to follow!!!
