When Birthday Weekend Plans Go Amiss

November 24, 2014

You know the saying, live happens while you're busy making other plans? Well....story of our lives lately. Not this past weekend but the weekend before that was my husband's birthday. I mentioned on here that we had a little getaway weekend planned. My mom stayed at our house to watch Hudson and we high-tailed it up north to her lake house for a weekend of just the two of us. 

Well.

Bright and early Saturday morning my mom called saying Hudson was throwing up. She assured me she could take care of him, but then I would have totally worried about him all weekend...and I knew he probably just wanted his mama. So we packed up our things and went back home. Hudson was lathergic, but happy to see me. Luckily by the evening he was back to his usual crazy self. But...birthday weekend ruined.

This past weekend, we were determined to make birthday weekend happen. This time my mom took Hudson on Friday up to her lake house which left Jon and I alone for a night. We ate Italian food in our pjs and slept in until almost 9am the next day. I can't remember the last time I slept that well. Then we took it easy on Saturday, met some friends for a drink and then headed up to the lake just in time to kiss our sweet boy goodnight. Hudson was thrilled to see us but he had a blast at Gigi's house (as usual).

The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing and hanging Christmas lights. Hudson couldn't get enough of them and was SO excited to see our house lit up. Christmas is going to be so much fun this year!

 
In other news, we got a ton of snow this week and Wrigley was loving it. 

And up to his hat stealing antics, as usual. 

Most of the snow melted over the weekend....just in time to get some more this week. Tell me again why I live here?

  1. Oh the lives of a mommy and daddy - how many times do plans fall away because of our little people. Hope Hudson is all better and you enjoyed your evening x

  2. Reminds me of last year when my husbands work Christmas party was out of town, but in my sister-in-law's city. So she kept the kids and Brian and I stayed in a hotel downtown... A morning wake up call Liam was throwing up and Aubrey was out of bottles (this time you can cry over spilt milk!).

  3. I am so glad you were able to "make up" his birthday....it always seems like something happens when you have big plans, right?! And, the snow...don't even get me started! We are supposed to get over a foot on Thanksgiving...it's looking like a pajama, football and movie day for us!

  6. I have learned to not have my heart set on things to go just perfectly as planned because they never do anyways. Less of a let down when things don't work out. Lol! Glad that Hudson was feeling better though & y'all were able to kind of make up for it this wknd!

  15. I definitely cannot speak for a love of snow since having been born and raised in CA but that sweet face and the excitement on Hudson's face... makes the hassle of the snow totally worthwhile!
