Mothers Day was awesome, but bitter sweet. I had to leave that evening for a week in VA for work (will get to that!) but daddy & baby gave me the sweetest gift ever!
I have it sitting on my desk in my home office, and I love it. We spent the Saturday before Mother's Day visiting all the mamas in our lives, so we could hang out as a family of 3 the next day before I left. We visited with my Dad and his wife at their house for a while and baby had a ball running around. Then we went to my in-laws for dinner and hanging out. The next day we were lazy at home, playing and snuggling with baby as long as possible till I had to leave!
I spent a week in VA for work. I really can't complain since I work from home now- oh hey...did I mention I worked from home now?! ;) Anyway, I went for training and it was great. It was SO HARD being away from Adelynn, I was pretty hardcore home sick. But they spoiled us rotten, fed us well, and did everything they could to make sure we all had a great time.
Blessed to work with/for such an awesome company. It was a great week, exhausting, and long. I skyped with baby and Joey a few times. It reminded me of when Joey was in the Army- that was out go-to form of communication for a long time! It was bitter sweet, I was so happy to see baby but every time I logged off I had a huge lump in my throat. I played peek-a-boo with her over webcam and she laughed SO hard. You could tell she was wondering why Mommy was in this box? Ha, too funny.
But she was GREAT for Daddy all week long, and he is a champ for being a single parent for a whole week! I couldn't wait to get home to them. My flight was already a late one, but then was delayed by a few hours- by the time we finally landed in ATL it was almost 2am! I was so exhausted. Adelynn was having a sleep over so Joey could come get me. When I woke up the next morning, I woke up to a bag I'd been drooling over/coffee/donuts/and my BABY GIRL! I was so dang excited. Hugging her for the first time in a week was the best feeling ever, I never wanted to let go!.
When I got home from VA, I had three days of work before it was time to travel again! But this time, not for work. My SIL Anna's wedding! Thursday was spent running errands, getting nails done, and packing for the weekend. The wedding was at The Farm in Rome,GA and it was so beautiful. SO perfect for Anna and Troy who, after 10 years, were finally getting married. I couldn't be more happy for them. There was a cluster of cabins/cottages on the 60+ acres there, so the family all stayed on site. It was so cool! I could've sat outside in the quiet all day long just looking at the surrounding mountains and enjoying the breeze! We spent the entire Memorial Day weekend there, and it was a blast. I was a bridesmaid, and Adelynn was a flower girl. She was amazing all weekend-- slept great, our happy girl, running all over the place just loving it. She even performed her flower girl duties amazingly! We weren't sure how she would do, but sure enough she walked right down the aisle to her daddy's arms. When she finished everyone started clapping- she looked around, smiled, and started clapping! It was the cutest thing ever! I hope the wedding photographer got some pictures of it cause no one else did, and it was the most precious thing ever. It was an amazing weekend all around, and I am so happy to have Troy as my BIL! They are currently honeymooning in the Bahamas, and lord knows I wish I was there too ;)
Thats been life lately! I'm still adjusting to the new job, learning a ton, and enjoying working from home. Joey just started school last week through the GI Bill and I couldn't be more proud. He is going 4 days a week and still working full time. Its a lot but I know he can do it. He started pursuing the EMS program- and I think he'd be great at that! So hopefully it means a brighter future for our family.
Thrilled to death summer is here cause it means lots of cook outs, corn hole, beer, hangin' with friends outside, and just more sunshine!
Sure do love my little family of 3 :)
