a weekend {not} worth blogging about

Some weekends just don't seem worth blogging about (and it feels like we've had a lot of those lately) but I want to remember these low key days with my family! Sometimes these are the days that matter most!
Friday evening I was feeling a little frustrated and stir crazy! I was hoping to go out of town but we weren't able to, so we had zero plans to look forward to. I'd asked Eric if we could go on a date, but we were having one heckuva time planning something, Mia was in a mood during dinner and I was frustrated with Eric because nothing was working out (as if that's his fault, ha ha! Sorry babe!) Just as I was walking away to get some space (while telling Eric that he and Mia were driving me to the loony bin, ha!) Eric snatched me up in a hug and asked if I wanted to go tour his work! That's not the most romantic suggestion but I was so excited (and a little bugged because I wanted to be annoyed with the world... am I the only one who gets in those moods? ha!) My weekend was looking up!
Saturday morning I went to piyo (it's my new favorite class at the gym!), the farmer's market and played with Mia. After she napped, Eric and I dropped her off with our friends (where she had the time of her life and was ticked when we came to pick her up, ha ha!) and drove out to his work. We got caught in the craziest rain/hail storm! It was so bad we could hardly see while driving! We arrived to his work, an iron mill, to the worst flooding Eric has ever seen out there! The storm limited my tour to just the mill, but I can't wait to go back out and have Eric show me the mining pits and everything else I missed. Anyway, Eric is the electrical superintendent of the mill and it was so eye opening to see the machinery he works with! It's kind of mind blowing that Eric understands what it takes electrically for that place to run, and if he doesn't understand when something breaks down? You better believe he learns what it needs to start running again! It's not a glamorous job and Eric comes home dirty each day, but he's good at what he does and passionate about the work! I'm just so incredibly proud to call that hard working man mine! We ended the night by stuffing our faces with good food and good friends! (Thanks for babysitting Kort and Jord!)
Sunday was so good! The temps dropped thanks to the storm and it continued to rain for most of the day! Mia was in and out of the house all day playing in the water :) I couldn't resist pulling out the fall decor and making a pot of soup! Mia loves the decorations! She checked out every single pumpkin, wreath, garland etc and took her time staring them down and saying "yes!" each time we asked her if she liked it :) We even pulled out the hot chocolate, Mia's first time having a cup, and she loved it so much that she threw a fit when hers was gone. Obviously she gets her attitude from her daddy ;) So this weekend wasn't much for making conversation on the blog, but it turned out just perfect so I had to document!

That' s an adorable picture of you two! Very good idea or you to get to see where he spends a lot of his time! Now you can picture it better in your mind. :)

Caroline Fleenor said...

I have definitely gotten into those moods before!! :-/ I'm glad that you ended up having a nice weekend though, and maybe this weekend you guys can go on a date. :-)

I LOVE the low key weekends that turn out to be the BEST. I'm so excited for fall soups. We came home from the dedication (did they do that down in Southern UT too?) and threw some chicken, potatoes, carrots and a can of cream of mushroom soup into the crockpot. I'm not usually a fan of canned soup, but this was like chicken and gravy, SO GOOD! I love the cooler temps right now :)

Kristen said...

birdie to be said...

BLovedBoston said...

Your so right - the low key weekends are the best!! I can only imagine how cute she was when her hot chocolate was done!!! Love the photo of you too - so cute!

Kristin said...

Low key weekends really are SO necessary sometimes. And I seriously could have written that first paragraph myself - sometimes I am just annoyed at the world and nothing can change it.

P!nky said...

Gah, I get in those moods too and it's just like...let me be mad ;)!

What a cute suggestion on his part, love the hard hat picture, too precious!

Pamela {Sequins and Sea Breezes} said...

Oooh yeah...I totally know what those moods are like. Glad that you were able to turn yours around tho and have a great weekend!!

Karina Marie Powell said...

That is a mood of mine a lot of the time. HA. glad to know it's not just me. You two look darling in your attire!!

Sarita @ it's my girls' world said...

Your weekend sounds like mine-- bleh but yeah!!! We all have those sometimes! I've never heard of peyo?!

Lacey said...

I kind of love his suggestion at showing you his work! Also, I REALLY want to pull out my fall stuff now too. You reminded me that having a kid that get excited about seasons and holidays makes it that much more fun to get the house all decorated since it's not just for my own benefit anymore!

Nina Robinson said...

Nope, you're definitely not alone in those moods! That was a creative suggestion on your hubby's part. Glad the weekend turned out perfect :)

Ech and Will said...

I get in those moods sometimes too. How cool that you got to see your husband's work though!

Sarah said...

I totally get in those moods too! You're not alone. Such a cute picture of you and Eric :)

Sarah @ The Not Quite Military Wife said...

Aww that's so sweet to bring you to work! Glad you had such a great weekend!

Jessie said...

Um, this is exactly what perfect family weekends are made of. I love the busy, out of town, new adventures kind of weekends but I've learned to love the low key ones just as much! They're just what I need to recooperate sometimes. Also, doesn't seeing your hubs on the job help to see things from his point of view?

Courtney [Sweet Turtle Soup] said...

oh gosh yes, I feel you. I get in that funk and even when something awesome turns things around it still takes a while for my mind to catch up. total grump. Also stubborn ha. Glad you got to do something fun! Including decor soup and cocoa!! mmm cocoa. Aria hasn't had her first yet, I'm excited to get her some soon. Maybe the first real cool ish day!

Denise said...

Ohh Presley loves hot chocolate! Isn't it so neat seeing our guys in work mode?! I used to love going to Dave's work, it's not so exciting to me anymore. Probably because I've been there a thousand times! Ha!

Elizabeth {Chasin' Mason} said...

I know this might sound kinda nerdy, but I would love to tour my husband's work too! Or spend a day with him and see what he does. I always hear him talk but it's kinda cool to actually see what he talks about so when he mentions it, you actually get it. How cute he offered to take you there!
