Hello, Saturday. :)
On Saturday the boys and I headed out for a lovely day at a park in downtown Houston. Daddy was on his way home from Germany, so we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and spend the day outside.
Hello, train ride and ducks. :)
We took a train ride, ate lunch while bird (and duck) watching, then took a stroll through the Japanese Gardens. It was perfect.
Hello, Japanese Gardens. Goodbye, soda!
In other news, I am on day 33 of no soda! I can't believe I've made it this far. I still crave it. And, to be honest, I am surprised at my will power. I guess I never really realized how much I drank and how fully I relied on that caffeine kick. The only caffeine I consume these days is from the occasional latte I order from Starbucks. :)
Hello, scary, stressful days. :(
Last Monday I had to take my sweet Connor to the Emergency Room. While I was putting him in the car, he twisted out of my arms and dropped about 3 feet onto the parking lot. The crack his head made on the asphalt was sickening. We spend about 4 1/2 hours in the ER before we saw a doctor. While we were waiting, he tripped on his own feet and fell head first into the chair I was sitting in. It resulted in a giant goose egg and a slice down his forehead. My poor baby had a horrible day. Luckily, he was fine. It's so scary when things like that happen. In just a moment, good days can turn into horrible ones.
Hello, Valentine's Day. :)
We have no plans for Valentine's Day. I'm still nervous about leaving the boys with a babysitter, so I think Jason and I will just spend a nice evening in. I'm thinking a surf and turf dinner, followed by snuggling on the couch and watching a movie. The perfect kind of night!
What are you doing for Valentine's Day? Did you have a nice weekend?
Happy Monday, friends! :)
