Travelling Mama and Fathers Day

Last weekend was one for the books...it marked my official first trip out of town without the baby! So what does mean you ask? Yes, I left the baby alone with Jeff--woo hoo success! I have to brag on the hubby a bit because he did a FANTASTIC job without me. I returned home on Sunday morning to a happy baby beaming from ear to ear with a huge grin and a full tummy. Now don't get me wrong (here is that whole honesty thing coming into play), the house was cluttered with burp cloths, bottles, diapers, and bibs strown out everywhere, but they made it on their own so I could have some R&R time with my friends...I'm so proud of you Jeff-you were great and I know Caroline enjoyed all that quality time she had with you, especially watching the US Open ;).
As for me, I was living it up with the girlfriends in Knoxville. I drove up early Saturday morning to hang out and then we celebrated Jamie and her little man coming soon! Baby showers are just the best and we seem to be doing a lot of them these days which makes me happy...fun playmates for CC!
Bev, Luke, and Meghan
 Adorable idea...written messages on the diapers
 Yummy spread...that fruit fluff dip gets me every time
 The glowing mama-to-be and her weekly progress pictures
 Me and the BFF
 Love these ladies
 Candice, Jules, and Meghan
 Present time...Baby Graebe did well!!
 The hostesses and the lovely mama
 Sweet pregnant ladies!!
Jamie racked up with some adorable goodies, and necessities, too and then we spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing around the house before heading out to our favorite place for mexican for dinner that night. Poor Bev and I only had 1 margarita each and have to admit we were a little tipsy, which made it a must to head to Menchie's for frozen yogurt...yes, we are wold women! Even better, instead of venturing to one of our favorite bars for some cocktails, we all headed home to get a full nights rest-funny how things change, huh?
Sunday morning, I was on the road bright and early because I was itching to get home to my two babes. Mimi and Pappy came over so we could celebrate Father's Day with brunch at Tavern and then the boys and I headed to see the Sounds baseball game...never a dull moment when the three of us are together and we had such a fun time. Then we grilled out and called it a night. Here are a little pics from our Father's Day:
Caroline and 2 of her 3 guys
 Me and Monkey!!
Me and my 2 best girls...see a little resemblance??

  2. Good for you getting away for a weekend already. My daughter is 11 months and I have a girls weekend planned for next weekend and as much as I'm looking forward to it, I'm already anxious! My hubby will do great, but I'm so afraid I'll miss her too much!

  3. Good job Jeff! And good for you for getting some girl time for yourself. :) Any chance you know where the guest of honor got her dress? Pretty sure I need that for one of my showers.

  10. way to go dad! That's great that you got time to get away. I have a 2 month old and I have never valued my friends and alone time so much because it is so far and few between now! Not that I don't love it but well.. you know what I mean! Girl time is a necessity for a new mama!
