I wish I had some exciting adventures to share from our weekend, but sadly I have nothing to report. Eric is still working like crazy and as much as we are wanting to get out and explore, our chill weekend at home (when Eric wasn't at work) was just what we needed! Friday night I bathed Mia early and we cuddled up under blankets and watched Tangled. Why I don't do that with my little girl more often is beyond me... nothing compares to those cuddles we receive when watching a show together! Daddy came home and surprised us with ice cream! That lucky little Mia got to stay up past bed time AND indulge in ice cream even after I had brushed her teeth! It was a good night :)
Eric worked all day Saturday so instead of lounging in bed all morning, I got up with Mia and we went to the gym for an early morning spin session. It was a pretty amazing sight when we pulled out of our little community and discovered TONS of hot air balloons all over the west side of the valley. They were landing and taking off in fields next to the road, so we got amazing views of the "ba-oons!" and of course, so many in the sky. I don't even know how to describe Mia's reaction except to say that her mind. was. BLOWN. What a good morning to get outta the house bright and early! I celebrated Saturday by getting Chinese take out for dinner, so good! We are totally enjoying having a million options for eating out again (and I totally enjoyed skipping a night of cooking!)
Sunday started out perfectly with an early morning family snuggle sesh in bed, then Eric surprised Mia and I by bringing us breakfast in bed! Mia only lasted a couple bites until we transferred her to the kitchen table, but it was a short and sweet experience for her ;) We had plans to go on a nature walk then go to church when I discovered Eric was sick (yet he still made his girls breakfast in bed- those pancakes are made from scratch!) and Mia was totally under the weather (I blame teething. Those 2 year molars will be the death of me!) so we ended up staying home allllllll day! Princess pjs, cuddles, smoothies, movies, picture hanging, naps, pot roast and treats ended up being just the kind of Sunday we needed! Now I'm just hoping that Mia's 3 molars we are waiting on will just pop out at the same time this week (I wish!) so that we can be finished with this teething nonsense, and Eric can kick his cold to the curb asap so that we are all back to normal asap!
