It’s Friday…yay! I usually don’t get excited about Fridays because Ryan is gone on these nights and has college games on Saturdays that are usually really far, so he’s gone all day. But today, he’s taking off from reffing and taking me out for Valentine’s Day (he’s gone tomorrow). We haven’t been on a date since our 7 year anniversary in August (at least that I can remember). Maddox was too hard to leave these last few months, but we’re all good now.
Then we celebrate my birthday on Sunday/Monday so I’m really excited for that as well! It’s going to be a great weekend. My brother and his wife are due with Baby #2 any day now (actually due at end of month, but I think he’ll come sooner). He might even come this weekend, which might throw a kink in the Sunday celebration, but hello, my nephew would be even better to celebrate than my birthday, so I’m excited about anticipating that as well!
Here are some of my favorites right now. Their just kind of random.
This kid. He’s just part of my favorite moments during the day. He’s an incredibly happy, easy 7 month old.
This has probably been one of my favorite items Beckham has brought home from preschool. It’s so simple, but I loved reading his answers to the things he loves. All of these answers are spot on.
I posted this on Instagram, but I have the utmost respect for police and gratitude towards their sacrifice. Their job is one of the hardest in the world and they do not get enough credit. There was a police car behind me in the Starbucks line the other day. So I decided to buy his drink. I’ve never done this before, but it did feel good to “give” a little. Not gonna lie, I was really hoping he wasn’t buying coffees for tons of police at the station. But I told myself, even if he was, it would have been worth it and paled in comparison to what they do for us! Interesting fact: I’ve never been pulled over by police! #imknockingonwood #iwouldbreakoutinhives #andcry
A friend of mine from back when I played club soccer (over 15 years ago) came to Dallas and we had a play date so our boys could meet and we could hang out (she has another boy but he’s off to the side). Her hubby is in the military so she’s staying here a while. I haven’t seen her in those 15 years and it was like we didn’t miss a beat…it was like hanging out with a friend I see all the time! They stayed all day and it was great. I love that and can’t wait to soak in some more play dates before she goes back. I also love that the weather has been great (as seen in this pic).
I loved how easy and inexpensive Beckham’s Valentine’s goodies were. Total cost was $5.00 for bubbles and candy. I put them in a Ziploc snack bag and staples a fun tag on them.
We plan on lounging in our pj’s all morning, then heading to the park for lunch and maybe the library later. A perfect day before our night out as husband and wife and not mommy and daddy.
