Great Weekend and Goals This Week

On Friday at 4pm I called my mom and said "Whatcha doin this weekend?" By 5:45pm I was on a bus to NY to see my family for the weekend!

It was a great weekend with my Mom and my fam. Got up to 60 degree weather and went for a bike ride around the neighborhood. It was crazy to think back to my elementary days and all the friends I had around the block. I rode my bike everywhere. I was really feelin my childhood peddling by those houses!

Headed to the mall with mom and my sis and niece. Shopped in forever 21! Yep. I fit...and not tight fit, but really fit into everything I tried on. I got this cute red dress!

I love that it's super modest! I don't have to flash people when I bend over to pick up my kids!!

Anywho.... went to lunch with my aunt and cousin, her baby, my mom, sis and niece. Got mini turkey burgers and took off the bun. It was a kids meal and I could only eat half. My band is so perfect! (It only has like 6 cc in a 11cc band and I honestly don't think I need another fill for a LONG time.... good thing, cause my new insurance prob won't cover it!)

Then my mom and I went to get a cupcake. It was a must! And then we drove over to this Buttermilk Falls to look at the venue for a wedding. We both love weddings and I do some wedding planning so this is right up our alley. We aren't planning a wedding for anyone, but we just went to look. A hobbie. So fun!

We came home and watched "I Don't Know How She Does It" with Sarah Jessica Parker. Cute.

Then went out for dinner where my sis works "Bull and Budda". A little posh fusion cuisine restaurant. Had pad thai and chicken. YUM-o!

Came home again and watched home video's from when I was in middle school. I was so gross, but I love watching those videos. My dad has at least 50 tapes of our childhood. He never missed a second with that video camera and thank goodness he didn't cause those tapes are precious memories!!

Sun I headed back to Baltimore on the MegaBus! That bus is nuts! and came home and did nothing!

It was the perfect little weekend. It was what I needed.....some mommy time. Thanks mom!!
