The time to relax is when you don't have time for it.

    A very tall glass of OJ is sitting beside me, and Brady just reached down into my bowl of oatmeal. I'm in pajamas, and plan to stay that way all day. I'm just thankful it's a rainy day here in little ol' Simpsonville. I think I might be sick. Exhausted, really, and allergies have taken over. Should've expected this, the way I've been on the go the past month! These are the days Starbucks should deliver. I'll be just fine by tomorrow (I hope) because I have to. The ladies are counting on me! 

   So this weekend was simply perfect. We had no plans for Friday night when my sweet mother-in-law asked if we'd like to eat Mexican. She always knows the answer to that question, Brian or no Brian, I'm in! He decided to go anyway, despite the rain and along came Andrew and Angela :) A couple of tacos and a margaita later, I was eating an ice cream and candle shopping with Angela. The night ended at our house with a good girl talk about this and that :)

    Saturday morning started early, about 6 a.m. because I was THAT excited to be off from work on a Saturday! I got myself ready, watching Brian sleep as I was hustling around the bedroom getting dressed and picking things up...and it didn't even bother me to see him snooze. I was so excited to be downtown with mom, Ellie & Heather, strolling Brady around on a beautiful Saturday morning. After strolling through the fresh market and checking out Artisphere, we sat down for appetizers and finished our morning downtown at 12 p.m. It was only noon and we had the rest of the day to be out and about! Oh, how I've missed my Saturdays!!! So what did we do? Went shopping for clothes...and stopped for wine ;) Couldn't have been a happier Saturday, because Brady was content strolling around the entire day. 

   Sunday morning came, and it I was nervous from the moment I woke up! It was Brian's birthday and his SURPRISE party!!! I'd gone more than a month keeping this party a secret and I just knew it was bound to slip out sometime today. Brady and I were lazy most of the Sunday, except for a little wagon ride with Lilly. I knew we had a big night ahead! Time rolled around to leave for the party and I was crossing my fingers that things would work out as planned... Brian was dressed and ready to work at the LOOM, not having the slightest clue about his party... needless to say, at the end of the night, Brian had a great time, and a very Happy Birthday! I'm so thankful for our wonderful family and friends who made his birthday so special :) This was an absolutely perfect weekend! 
    So, Monday came quickly, with only short breaks in between clients. I sure was missing Kylie at work, it was too quiet! Such pleasant company yesterday, I'm so blessed with my sweet clients! After a long day, I stopped by the LOOM to scoop up my little Brady and head home. Bathtime, pj's, a lullaby & a bottle...little man was out like a light. So was his mom.
    It's Tuesday and I woke up feeling absolutely horrible. Stuffy, runny nose, watery eyes, achy all over, it's time to rest. My sweet husband just walked in the door with a bag full of things to make me feel better :) My best bet is to get Brady down for a nap and pull out that new book of mine. Forget the dreadful to-do list for today!
