Bitter. Sweet. There are no better words to describe our "weekend", so here goes!
Bitter: Eric expectantly had to work over the weekend which was a huge bummer for us because we had planned (for 2 weeks) to go visit my in laws. There have been some big changes in our family and we just really want to be there to show our support and love! But you know, life happens.
Sweet: Eric took Monday and Tuesday off so at least we were having our own "weekend" and we were SO excited to just relax, get a date in, and watch Frozen on repeat :)
Bitter: We woke up in the middle of the night to a sick baby. Mia experienced her first stomach bug :( What a long, sad night. And to make it even worse (ha ha)... Frozen still hadn't arrived by mail and all we wanted to do was hold our sweet babe and get lost in the world of Olaf :)
Sweet: Mia's bug was short lived so Eric and I were able to sneak in a quick Temple date. I'm grateful for these moments with my hubs because we don't get that alone time nearly enough! Then we took Mia to Target and let her run lose :) It was hilarious watching Eric and Mia in the toy section together. She is just like her daddy, has to push all the buttons she can reach and she loves to test out the toy cars! Oh and we finished our shopping for Mia's tiny Easter basket. I can't wait for Easter! Did I mention Mia experienced another first? Definitely at the top of my favorites list! I can't wait to share the details!
Bitter/sweet: After having some ups and downs the past few days because, you know, life happens... we received the news that my dear, sweet Grandma passed away last night (Tuesday). I know the reunion with my Granddad was the sweetest ever, but she will be so very missed!
In a lot of ways, these past few days worked out in the worst ways! But in other ways, I'm grateful for the ways it worked out because I got to soak up some serious time with my loves and we were reminded just how important that time is. I love my little family so much (some might say I'm obsessed, and I won't disagree) and we are so grateful for the families we are blessed to be a part of!
