he and I


We were alone ((translates without children)) for 55 hours.
Yes I counted. It was so fun to take a little trip up to the place we will from now on call "Nooga" (Chattanooga, TN).
We rode in the car without anyone crying... okay I cried a little when we first left because I am not away from my children very often, and it was a step for me to go so far away for two nights in a row. 
My totally awesome parents held down the fort (I am 1001x grateful).
We wanted it. We needed it, but still it was a little emotional for me.
No shame.
We slept in until 8:30 AM. We ate dinner on a boat.
We got lost a time or two.
We enjoyed amazing wedding festivities (including dancing hilariously to Footloose and a few other songs).

My dress was $12.97 and my shoes were $16.98.
This is how we do it.
Just the two of us.

What did you do this weekend?

  4. Looks like sooo much fun! It is so brave of you to leave your boys. That is one of the hardest things for a mom, I think. You did it and you all survived and now I feel am encouraged to do that same. :) Love the shoes and the price. Also, LOVE that you danced to Footloose. Doesn't get much better than that really.
