weekend review





Just a nice glow from the sun... since I have no clue how to edit pictures, ha ha!

Our weekend was super low key but somehow it was just perfect! Eric worked all day on Valentine's day (which wasn't perfect, ha ha) but I didn't mind too much because I got to snuggle my love bug all day! She is by far the sweetest gift I've ever received! 
Friday we had big plans to celebrate our engagement anniversary, but we ended up watching movies all day and eating good food with good friends in between :) It was so relaxing and just what we needed! I thought I liked lounging around the house before I had a baby... but anytime I get to take advantage of relaxing is just the best! And having sweet, little Mia to snuggle? Nothing tops that!
Saturday we decided to take a spontaneous little trip down south with friends to enjoy warmer weather. We shopped, we ate, and we took Mia exploring :) Sometimes I forget that I live in/near such gorgeous landscaping! People come from all over the world to see our red rocks and the national parks that surround us. This sounds weird, but Mia makes me look at the world so differently now. I try my best to take advantage of every moment and I get so excited to show her new things! I can't wait until it warms up so that we can continue to show her the world! I am definitely suffering from major spring fever now ;)
I could use more weekends like these in my life.... family, friends, relaxing, sunshine and exploring. Just perfect!

Your weekend looks amazing and your family is perfect! I'm envious of the sunshine and warmer temperatures you got to enjoy; I am also suffering from some serious spring fever and can't wait to enjoy some warm weather. Also, you are looking fantastic; you look incredible for just having had a baby not too long ago!

Are you sure you just recently had a baby? I mean, really. I hope I look that good once this little girl decides to make her appearance.

Leslee said...

Like all the comments above....YOU ARE LOOKING AMAZING!!! Please give me your secrets for looking so awesome after just having a kid. I will need all the help I can get in July. With my first kid....it took me 2 years to get back to looking normal :) Way to be my friend!

You do look great! I find myself liking to stay home more and more too.

The Little Flapper said...

Thank you for all your sweet comments on my posts. Glad you were able to arrange a family outing. Your little girl is beautiful, and it's hard to imagine anything more beautiful than family time.

Shay said...

Seriously you look SO AWESOME! I love that you guys have a good balance, it seems, between having fun outside and at home! Too many people think their life has to end when they have a baby as far as a social life goes!

Janna Renee said...

You look amazing! It's not even fair how quickly you bounced back. I bet other moms are jealous. Haha
