Girl's Night and Hang Out

This weekend was so fun.  Perfect amount of chill and crazy. 

I love this picture of Molly Anne. I look disgusting but whatever ha. She is too cute!

Friday night we had a big time!  Sarah invited us for a girl's night out at her club!  We had a fancy dinner and drinks and the girls ran wild.  Well two out of the five did!

Love these girlies.  I'm so thankful to have amazing friends but also mom friends. Y'all know what I mean?  We are in the thick of this crazy phase and you gotta have those friends that you can text and say my child just fell off the bed. Or my child is screaming for no reason. Or my child just went potty in the bath.  Mom friends. xo

Kevin came and picked us up and this missy fell asleep after being in the car for one minute.  Up wayyyyy past her bedtime. 

It was worth it though. It was really a blast!

Saturday morning we went to Duke's Grill which is pretty close for a down home breakfast. Hole in the wall. Love it. We did some errands afterward then headed home for lunch and nap. 

Saturday night we had a couple folks over.  It was monsooning outside.  I was planning to meet the pizza guy at his car but he came to the door anyway. Then when he left our driveway he hit numerous plants and our mailbox so there's that.  Always something. 

Poor mills. He was traumatized by the thunder. 

And again yesterday morning. 

Sunday we didn't leave the house all day and it was truly so nice. 

Well we did walk a few houses down in the wagon but that's it.  

We played and played. 

Monday came quickly.  Ready for a productive and fast week. Chat soon!!

Five on Friday - Mom's Spaghetti & Swing & Swim with Nannie and Poppa

1.  Mom's Spaghetti Sauce that Kevin loves.  Here are the cast of characters plus Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, half an onion finely chopped, 2 bay leaves.  In the plastic bag are two pounds of cooked hamburger meat.  Simmer on low all day. I use my crock pot.  Note: this makes a lot. I usually freeze several containers. 

2.  My Dad put some hooks in our garage frame and hung Molly Anne's swing. She LOVES it.  We had been going to our neighborhood playground but now we don't have to!  

3.  I'm a night shower kinda girl. I literally can't go to bed without a shower.  It started when I was really young and continued by playing sports after school in high school. Hasn't stopped.  I like getting into clean sheets clean!  #random

4.  Mom and Dad scheduled their flight accordingly so they could come watch her swim lesson yesterday. Here we are on the way out the door!  She still is loving it!!!

5.  It really was nice for Kevin and I to get away for a few nights but the planning is crazy!  I'm thinking about doing a post on how I get things ready with MA before traveling.

Puerto Rico

On Sunday we flew down to Puerto Rico!  These were the pictures from our room at the Ritz...amazing.  

The zika virus did scare me but I used the Off when we went outside. 

The first night we met up with Kevin's agent friends and went to Old San Juan for dinner.  It was so good to see our friends.  We've literally traveled the world with this group and I do think you get really close to those that you travel with.  

At the restaurant on their patio!

On Monday the guys went deep sea fishing and Jessica and I hung out for brunch and pool time. Then the casino. Ha!

That night was the event and it was awesome. Good band, food (sea bass and short rib), drinks, lighting was cool etc. 

TMark is crazy. 

We were up way too late in the casino and lobby bar haha. 

Tuesday Kevin and I had breakfast at the hotel then went to the beach. 

And it started pouring. It was actually cool being under the umbrella while the storm passed. I mean we were in our bathing suits anyway so who cares if we got wet. 

We went back to Old San Juan and walked around but came back to the hotel quickly.  It was a gross day weather wise. 

Tuesday night we went with two other couples to BLT Steak in the hotel. So good. I got snapper. 

Kevin got a skirt steak special. 

Dirty gin martini with blue cheese olives. Yes. 

We told them it was Jessica's birthday ha. She was a good sport!

Cheers to good friends!

I loved this painting.  The picture doesn't do it justice. 

This morning we hit the beach for 30 min before we had to get on the bus to the airport.  

And now we are back with our girl!!!
