Friday afternoon, the kids and I loaded up the car and headed to Arlington for a visit. We made great time on the drive Friday afternoon, and the kids were both fantastic in the car, which is always a blessing. We arrived just in time for a yummy dinner. Saturday morning, my super talented step-sister took pictures of the boys. I can’t wait to see them! I take a lot of pics of the boys, but it’s been awhile since I’ve done professional pictures. The rest of the day was spent relaxing, with a little side trip to the Sprint store thrown in to work out some phone issues. That’s always fun. Today we have been relaxing all day long-it’s been great! Later tonight, we are having dinner and visiting with Derek’s parents. And tomorrow is the official Meg and RyAnn day. We are going to do something fun with the kids in the morning, and hopefully have a dinner sans kids tomorrow night. Tuesday the boys and I will head back home. I know by then we will all be ready to get back to our normal schedule, and even more importantly, to see Derek.

Derek skipped out on this trip mainly because of a work conflict. But, it actually worked out pretty well (for me, anyway…) While the boys and I are busy having fun with grandparents and friends, Derek is at home finishing up my little not-so-little kitchen project. He is installing the backsplash this weekend! I cannot wait to get home and see it. He sent me a little teaser picture, and I think it looks awesome.


Thanks for all your hard work this weekend, D! As you can see, we finally decided on the silver. I flip-flopped so many times, but after having both panels up in the kitchen for 2 weeks, I decided I liked the silver just a smidgen more. I am a little ashamed to admit that I have a little more work on the cabinets. I have a few insides that need to be painted, and a few touch-ups. Finishing projects isn’t one of my strong points…

I guess that’s it for now.  This post is starting to bore me, which is never good.  🙂
