Weekend (Getaway) Plans

Yes, you read that correctly. This homebody is actually leaving her cozy home and sweet children for a weekend getaway with her handsome hubby. It is no secret that I love my home. Except for the daily school pick up, weekly grocery store run with my Flynn, and Saturday evening Mass, I rarely venture out. But this weekend, I am leaving my comfort zone to spend some time with my hubby. As much as I hate to leave my littles, I think it is so important for us to nurture our relationship and spend some time being Steve and Billie Jo, as opposed to Dad and Mom. It is a gift we can give them...a loving, strong marriage, which will serve as a model for their own someday.

We are going to a cozy resort not all that far away to rest and relax and eat and even visit the spa. Well, I am...Steve will probably sleep in! We are blessed to have my sister and her husband coming to watch the kids right here at our own house. The kids always have so much fun; it is like a vacation for them as well!

So, that is our weekend. I will be back here on Monday, but until then, I hope your weekend is happy and restful, whatever your plans may be! Oh, and don't forget...National Chocolate Cake Day is Sunday! Peyton has assured me she will take care of baking a yummy chocolate cake for when Steve and I get home on Sunday. Be sure to take a picture and share yours next week! : )

We finished up the holiday scented soap this week. I was sad until I found this. It smells so good!

I can never pass up holiday-themed treats...

And speaking of holidays...my sweetie all ready for Mass last weekend. And me playing around with Picasa...


  1. ok. So a getaway with the hubs and a chocolate cake homecoming? How do I get my family to replicate that for me? Enjoy, you deserve it! :))

  2. Have a wonderful weekend! A little getaway is always a good thing!

  3. Wonderful! I'm glad for you. Have a great time!!

  4. OH my goodness...enjoy your time together. Yes! So very important. I had a friend who put it this way...when the kids are grown and out of the house, I don't want to look at him (her spouse) and go, ugh! I'm married to you? Enjoy!!!
