Weekend Scenes

Happy Wednesday!  We've been trying to keep up with daylight savings and catch up from a fun weekend away.  Derek and I spent the weekend in NYC with some friends - we got there mid afternoon on Friday and after a little bit of spending time with friends at the hotel we all headed out to the Sugar Factory for dinner.


Saturday from 10am-2pm we went to Cycle for Survival - an amazing event and cause for rare cancers. We all rotated who was biking during the four hours on our five bikes in addition to the many other bikers there.


We were ready for some food and relaxing after!  After lunch at the hotel we headed out for a quick bit of shopping.  We met up with some other friends from out of town to for a little bit and I'm so excited to be in their wedding next June (Tatum and Derek are also)!


That night we went out for drinks and appetizers for our last night in the city.  We had a little bit of time the next morning to grab breakfast then we were on the train back home.  We were so excited to see Tatum - especially since it was nap time, ha!  So the three of us took nice long naps on the couch and continued to try to adjust to the time change.


To finish off the weekend we took Tatum and Stella over to a doggie birthday party and they both had a blast - Tatum loved having cake before dinner.

Snow Day


On Friday we woke up to a bunch of snow on the ground.  We were visiting my parents so I bundled Tatum up to go out and play as well as Stella.  Stella loved the snow as always and this was the first time that Tatum really had fun playing in the snow - he ran in circles laughing and smiling.  He always plays with his shovel in the house so he loved pushing it in the snow.

Weekend Scenes

Happy Monday! We had a snowstorm last night into today... the second of the weekend! Derek was away on a golf trip all weekend so Tatum and I were off to fend for ourselves.  Thursday afternoon we went over to my parents house for dinner and to spend the night.  I snuck out to take Stella on a walk and then my mom made us tacos for dinner.


Tatum got a lot of attention from everyone and got to stay up late.  I enjoyed a relaxing night by the fireplace and then early to bed.


Friday morning we woke up to a few inches of snow.  More on that tomorrow but Tatum had the best time playing and my mom made us a delicious breakfast of muffins and casserole.


Once the streets cleared we headed home for the afternoon and then after making some brownies headed to a neighbors for dinner.  I put Tatum down to bed early and caught up on DVR on the couch. 


Saturday morning after some playing and cleaning we went to the gym and grocery store before spending the afternoon playing after naps.  


Saturday evening I had some girlfriends into town to visit and we headed out for dinner and drinks to catch up. It was a great visit - we relaxed the next morning and then had lunch before they left.


Yesterday Tatum took a nice long 3 hour nap and then we played the rest of the day.  We had a little crockpot dinner date dand after Tatum went to bed I took some time to relax by the fire during the snow storm.

Weekend Scenes: Newport, RI

Happy Monday!  We are moving a little slow today trying to get into the swing of a new week after a fun weekend away.  Derek was in a wedding over the weekend in Newport, RI so Friday morning we left to drop Tatum off at my parents and fly up to Rhode Island.

The flight was so easy and after about a half hour ride, we were checking in at the hotel in Newport by about lunchtime.  We stayed at The Ocean Cliff, where the wedding was also held.  


After a few minutes to get settled we headed to the main strip in Newport for lunch.  We picked The Mooring which was right in the wharf overlooking the water.  We each got a bowl of New England Clam Chowder (which was out of this world!) then split a couple appetizers.  We headed back to the hotel and I had a bit of time to relax while Derek was at the rehearsal - I met him at the bar for a drink then we were headed back downtown for the rehearsal dinner.


The next morning we slept in and lounged then he was busy the rest of the day.  I went to meet some of our close friends at The Wharf Pub - we had the best time and ate so many good items.  We finished off with a cookie from the Cookie Jar next door.


The rest of the day was spent celebrating the wedding!  We had a great time catching up with a lot of friends and celebrating.  Yesterday we had enough time to sleep in before heading back to the airport in Providence.  We grabbed lunch and then it was time to head home and pickup Stella and Tatum!
