Lessons from the weekend

November 18, 2013

1. Be careful when you spray. Hairspray that is. On Saturday morning I took a direct shot of hairspray to the eye. And oh my word, it hurt so bad. Like I screamed. And flushed my eye out for 5 minutes. And spent the next 4 hours wondering if I should go to urgent care. And then wondered how much they would laugh at me if I did go to urgent care. I mean, who sprays hairspray directly in to their eye???? It felt like acid  was sprayed in to my eye and then it was scratched and it hurt every time I blinked. Which was a lot. Thankfully eye drops helped and by 3:00 I was better. Stupid hairspray.

2. Birthday getaways are the best. As a surprise for my husband's birthday, I kidnapped him after dinner and took him to one of the fanciest hotels in town. And we didn't come back until the next day. It was glorious. Hudson did great with grandma and mommy and daddy got to sleep in. Best idea ever.

3. John Deere hats aren't just for farmers. Just sayin'.

4. When you leave your kid for the night he misses you. And it's just about the cutest thing ever.

5. These are little bits of heaven on a stick. And were totally consumed this weekend.

I hope your weekend was as fabulous as mine!

  1. SO sorry about your eye! That sounds like it would be painful, ouch!!!! Yay for a surprise hotel stay and getting some sleep...that sounds LOVELY!

  2. Hair spray in the good ol eyeball is NO joke. I once sprayed dry shampoo in my eye and was convinced it was the end. #OverDramatic

  3. Hahaha....I would have been laughing and crying if I sprayed hairspray in my eye!! I am glad it got better on its own!

    PS Best birthday present ever!!! We are going to Vegas in December without Cam for 3 nights and as much as we want to party and live it up, I won't be surprised if we spend a lot of time sleeping. :)

    Have a great week!!

  4. hairspray to the eye...never good. it's also similar to cutting up onions or using cayenne pepper then rubbing your eyes-not very good! ;) hope you had a good date night!

  5. That picture of Hudson & your husband is adorable! Sounds like a fun night away. I would love to do this, but Liam is still nursing to sleep and during the night...

  6. I have the WORST luck with my eyes--I swear, they're the most sensitive eyes ever. And I've sprayed hairspray before...hurts like no other! So glad you had a blast on your little getaway, you deserve it. That picture of hubby and Hudson is the sweetest :)

  7. I've totally done that before with hairspray! I actually had a friend who also used to accidentally set of fire alarms with her hairspray, haha so FYI be careful if you're using hairspray by a fire alarm!

  8. I love your blog! Funny how we have to go to a hotel for a goods night sleep these days!!! I love your boots can you please tell me what brand or where you bought them please!
    Thanks so much

  9. yay fun weekend! happy birthday jon!

  10. I have done that before! It definitely hurts!! So glad y'all had a good time away! Hudson looks so big all of a sudden! Like, over night he grew!! He's so precious though!!

  11. What a great idea to kidnap the husband, so sweet! Glad ya'll had a blast :)

  12. I need some of those yummy looking apples in my belly now! And how big does Hudson look sitting on Daddy in that picture? Good Lord, he's growing so fast!!! Loving that you took the hubby 'away' for his birthday. Such a cute idea. Sleeping in sounds just marvelous!

  13. OMG the hairspray in the eye is the WORST. Oh my word. Been there.

    I love that pic of H with your hubby!!

  14. I feel like next time I hairspray I am going to do this, because I will be trying not to...that is just how my luck runs. Maybe I should hairspray with eyes closed from now on, just in case. Doesn't sound fun!

  15. Looks like such a great weekend to me-- well except for the hair spray to the eye part! So glad you and J were able to escape just the two of you for a night!
