Unfortunately...A 3-Day Weekend

As you can probably tell with my lack of a pregnancy update on Thursday, sometimes things just don't go as planned. An extra busy day at work, followed by a busy Thursday evening meant no time to get a post up and while I had good intentions to post it on Friday...my body had other ideas.

I woke up Friday with an achy body, weakness, and just an overall sickly feeling. It didn't take long for me to realize that work wasn't going to be in the plans and I resigned myself to spending the rest of the day in bed. What I didn't expect was that about half-way through the day Hubby would join me. He had been fighting his typical allergy symptoms and after some serious pushing, finally called the doctor. Apparently he most likely has bronchitis...Yippee for us! He came home right after lunch and relieved my mom who had been babysitting me for most of the morning just to make sure I was going to be ok. Just a note...I called my OB's office and none of my symptoms were anything they were concerned with, just something that had to run it's course.

We had originally planned on a nice date night out...but our nice dinner out quickly turned into Little Caesar's Pizza takeout and a Redbox. Still a nice date night, but not quite what either one of us had in mind.

Thankfully, we both woke up on Saturday feeling quite a bit better and we decided to continue on with our original Saturday/Sunday plans...a quick roadtrip to Kansas City to visit my brother & sister-in-law. I am SOOOO glad we were both feeling better because we had a fabulous time! We met up at their apartment and did a little bit of Elyse shopping yesterday afternoon while my sister-in-law finished up her short shift at work. Then after a quick rest for me, we headed out for a bit more Elyse shopping and a nice dinner at a local brewery...Gordon Biersch.

We had a wonderful meal on their outside patio and it was so great to hang out with them . Normally we don't get to spend much time with them on our own so that was certainly a welcome change! We finished off the evening with the eventual STL Cardinals blow-out win against the Rangers...it truly was fun to watch Albert Pujols have such an incredible game!

This morning we had a great breakfast at Mimi's Cafe (it was Hubby & I's first time, because we don't have one anywhere closeby), did a bit of outlet shopping for Elyse where we picked up a couple more adorable outfits, and then headed home.

I'm so thankful for the quick little roadtrip and I can't wait until my little brother graduates from law school and they move back closer to home. Something tells me Nick & Millie are going to be an incredible aunt & uncle to our precious baby girl!
