Quick Update--Girls Bonding Weekend

There is so much to blog about and so little time to do it!!!  I only have 10 minutes so I will have to do a quick post today and pack in as much as possible :)   This has been a crazy busy week.  I do hope to get my February Family Plan done this weekend, I did it in my head last night while feeding the baby.  Some days I just wish I could hook up my blog to my brain while nursing in the middle of the night....then I would always be caught up :) 

Lil C and I had a whirl wind of a trip to Jupiter Florida over the weekend.  We went to visit 2 of my great aunts and my great uncle.  We left Saturday morning on a 7AM flight and flew back to the bitter cold of New England Monday afternoon.  My mom, my sister L and my dad came with us.  It was nice to get away for a bit, visit with family and enjoy some warmer weather.

When we left on Saturday it was seven degrees in Boston but in Florida the temperature climbed into the mid 80's.  It was so nice put on my flip flops, a skirt and not bundle the baby from head to toe.  She had her first official walk and it was wonderful.  The weather for the next few days was okay...overcast, spotty rain showers and in the mid 60's but it still beat the cold here!  We went to the beach (even though it was raining), went to a sea turtle rescue center, searched for manatee's, and did a lot of visiting :) 

I really enjoyed the opportunity to spend time with just Lil' C.  I feel that she and I really bonded during this trip (of course the 3 other adults helped to make the journey go smoothly).  She was great on both plane flights, did okay with the crazy schedule and slept really well in the hotel (we had a two bedroom suite).  It was fun to see her in her summer hand-me downs and it made me really miss the warm weather! 

As for other news....Z and S had a great visit with S's parents over the weekend.  Z really enjoyed having his daddy to himself for three whole days!  Z has been doing really well with school (he has a skip in his step when I tell him it is a school day) and has been working hard to poop on the potty.  He is growing up so makes me a little sad.  He and I have been looking at his old baby pictures, he loves to see himself at C's age :) 

S and I are working hard to save money right now.  We have worked hard to pay off our credit cards, almost have our cars paid off and now the plan is to save as much as we can over the next few months.  S has told me to pretend that I am on a cruise ship for the next few months.  Everything I need is here in our house (except for food) or is already paid for (preschool, k-musik classes) and so there is no need to spend any money.  This is super hard for me but I am going to give it my all!

Okay, I will get my February Family Plan out soon as well as pictures from our trip :)  I hope you are all doing well.  Those of you with blogs, I will be over shortly.  Sorry to have been MIA :)

Good for you! I'm so glad you got away even if only for a quick weekend, nothing like a little sunshine and surf to recharge the batteries!!

What a fun trip! I just bought plane tickets for Alex and Calvin to go to Denver in April. I'm looking forward to some time with my girl!

That's kinda a cool way to look at it as if you're on a cruise ship. I think that would work for my mind!

So glad you had a wonderful weekend. You deserve it.

Aww that sounds like a nice trip! Good for you guys for paying off the credit cards! I need to tackle that badly but with 2 mortgages right now it isn't going to happen. Hopefully we'll just have one come late summer!
