It’s been a while

Wow! I just realized its been almost a month since I last posted!
I’ve been a little busy I guess. During the last few weeks I’ve seen friends, crafted and went on vacation.

Oh how that vacation made me realize how ready I am for summer. I can’t wait for the sun to shine and the weather be above 60. I’m tired of these dreary cold and snowy days. We recently were able to take a trip to Aruba. It was my first trip out of the country and I loved it there. The sun, surf, and warmth were incredible. It was 85 everyday with a 15mph breeze. href=”https://infinitelovecrafts.files.wordpress.com/2013/03/20130312-105457.jpg”>20130312-105457.jpg
Mornings were so relaxing. Up and to the beach for coffee, reading and a beautiful view.

And the rest of the day relaxing with new friends and lovely dinners. We shopped, ate and took a Jeep tour of the island to see more wonderful views. I wish I had more pictures to share but most are still on my cam

One of my favorite dinners was at a restaurant called Marandi. There were 16 in our party and we had a huge table on the deck over looking the ocean and a fabulous view of the sunset. It was wonderful.

But what a rude awakening it was upon our return to the north. Haha. We left sunny skies and returned to gloom

But getting home was great. I missed the kid and it was nice to hug him. So much so that I kept him home from school the next day for mommy time.

Since being home I’ve tried to get back into the crafting groove. I’ve tried my hand at more tutus and flowers. I like trying new things and was excited when I figured out how to make a flower. I’m still working on not burning the edges to much but I’ve been happy with my results so far

A little more practice and I think I’ll get it.

I have also decided to take piano lessons. Every Tuesday I will be learning away. I’m pretty excited but very nervous. I haven’t played an instrument in almost 20 yrs. And that was the trumpet in 7th grade. Wish me luck!

Hope everyone has a great week!

What a week!

It’s been a crazy week!

Last weekend was fun. We had a dinner with friends, basketball, went to a new bar, watched a movie multiple times and prepared for the week.

Dinner was great! There’s a large group of us with kids who have been trying to get together once a month. We call it our “Adults Only No Highchairs Fun Friends Dinner”. All of our kids are under 5 and foursome it’s been the first “date night” with adults. They are great. We all still spend the 3 hrs talking about the kids but it gives us time to do just that. Compare stories and help new parents and let us all see we are dealing with the same stuff. There’s always new friends at each dinner and sometimes old ones can’t come but still a great time. Most are teachers so not only do they work with their own kids daily but also a school full weekly. And I know they greatly appreciate the down time. We then had a wonderful Saturday morning basketball game. Kid is new to basketball but seems to like it. Neither of us ever played in school or really watch at home so it’s a new experience for us too. It’s been fun. I love watching the kids try to learn the rules. Dribbling is a hard concept. They all just want to get it to the hoop. It’s so cute. Later that night my husband got a call from a friend to go out. I thought he was gonna go but then was informed that the MIL was gonna watch the kid for a bit and I was invited. I was pleasantly surprised. They had more beer then any bar around our area. Most stick to the basics and the bartender was super nice and knew a lot about each bottle. It was a great lesson in beer. And by Sunday we were ready for family down time. We watched Hotel Transylvania 1000 times and just vegged. He loves that movie so it was the perfect Valentines gift. What we weren’t expecting was the high temp Monday night and the trip to Med Express Tues morning. Luckily we caught the beginnings of a double ear infection and strep throat early and after a few days of meds the little one was able to make it to school for Valentines festivities. Which brings us to today. It was so cute. PTC had a carnation sale and when the kids got their flowers they were so excited! I love being able to be at the school to help with these activities.

Over the next few days we will be enjoying a 4 day weekend from school, a family fun day, and the mister and I will be preparing for our first out of country trip and first week long stay at grandmas. Wish me luck. I’m not sure if I’m more nervous or excited. I’ve never left my baby, or big boy as he says, with this amount of distance between us.

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
