Games and Thrones: Weekend Recap

This weekend was such an enjoyable time.  I was able to attend both soccer games for the kids because they were both on the same side of the county!  Yay!  The kids got to see a great show. My mother came down for a brief visit and S. and I were able to attend a costume party.  Let's get you to the update.

A Weekend to 'Remember': Top 5

Hi everyone! I hope you had an amazing weekend! We certainly enjoyed ourselves. The family participated in the annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s ™ and S. and I got to enjoy our first date night since baby J. was born. We also had a great service at church on Sunday.

Weekend Recap: Kevin Hart and Football

Hi everyone. I’m hoping it was a pretty great weekend for you. We were expecting to have Honeybee’s first soccer game, but received an email from the association that it was cancelled due to the inclement weather surrounding Hurricane Florence (prayers for all affected). This hurricane was no joke with all the flooding that's been going on in my home state.  Today, 95 is STILL shut down and the state DOT is telling people not to use I-95 at all due to flooding.  It's that bad in places.  I have a cousin who drives tractor trailers for a living.  He posted a video of driving through South Carolina today and the flooding is ridiculous. 

But I definitely digress.  After Saturday's announcement of no soccer, Bug and I decided to cook breakfast. He was very excited to cook with me and add to his kitchen skills. Nothing fancy, just scrambled eggs and cheese, biscuits, breakfast potatoes and peppers, and sausage. Everyone crushed everything. We tidied up for a while and let the kids settle down for quiet time before getting ready to leave the house. S. and I had a date night scheduled and our brother in love agreed to watch the kids. 

The show was supposed to start at 7, but with lines stretched around the block for the sold out show, it didn’t start until 8PM. The opening acts were pretty funny. One, in particular, had me cracking up and I enjoyed him. Kevin Hart took the stage a little after 9 and I enjoyed him. I didn’t do the guffaw laughs that I have in the past, but I still enjoyed myself. After the show, S. and I went and picked up the kids and made it home to get a few hours of sleep before church. No pics of the evening beyond the one below because they were NOT playing with the no cell phone rule.

Marriage Musings...

Today my sister and her husband celebrate 17 years of marriage!  I was pleased when I saw their social media post this morning and couldn't wait to shower them with love and affection of my own.  I love their relationship.  Every time I see them, they genuinely love one another.  They look like they like one another.  They often fire jokes at each other and little inside jokes that make the other blush.  Looking outside in, they are a beautiful union.  I'm sure if you ask them, they will tell you that they love each other very much.  They will also tell you that they have walked through their own set of challenges as well just like any married couple will say the same.  Their love story got me thinking about marriages, mine in particular.

Weekend Recap: Movies, Away

Hi Guys! I wish I could say we had this amazing and magical weekend, but it was pretty chill. I’d originally planned to bring this great post about a planned company day at the local amusement park, but it was rained out and the company cancelled. That meant Bug’s baseball game was also cancelled, which meant we were pretty much loungers most of the day Saturday.

Weekend Recap: Of Winds and Nights Out

Hi everyone.  This weekend was pretty power packed.  All week long, the meteorologists were predicting a pretty serious wind storm.  I was skeptical.  I mean, it wasn't a hurricane.  It was a wind event and really couldn't have been that bad. 

Weekend Recap: Birthday Behavior

Hello everyone!  I hope your week has been absolutely amazing!  Mine was rainy and cloudy and blah looking outside, but SO much fun and enjoyable for the family.  Sunday was S.'s birthday.  We decided that we would do a private date night on Saturday with just the two of us and then celebrate with the family on his actual birthday.


I had quite a few ideas of things we could do for S.'s birthday.  He's big on new experiences and I was all game for some small thrill events like hot air ballooning or indoor sky diving.  It turned out the weather was forecast to be too yucky for ballooning.  The nearest indoor skydiving facility was an hour and some change away and our childcare arrangements couldn't cope.  So, I was thinking...what do we do.

Fortunately for me, S. has had an interest in trying out the Escape Rooms that have been so popular in the area.  We looked on Groupon for any deals and sure enough there was a pretty good one for a couple wanting to do the adventure.  We purchased, called and made an appointment, and were booked for the same evening.

We arrived at the Escape Room and were very impressed.  The lobby by itself was awesome!  Because the attraction has such a shroud of secrecy, I won't share too much about it, but we were paired with two other couples to solve a buried treasure riddle.  Oh my goodness!  We had so much fun!  Unfortunately, we didn't figure out the last riddle in time though we were SOOOOOOO close!  UGH!  But it was still a great adventure.

Weekend Recap: Date Night Revamped and Food, Glorious Food

Hello everyone and happy Monday!!  I hope you're having a great day wherever you are.  I'm determined this week is going to be amazing just because I'm claiming it as such.

Monday will be awesome.  This week will be awesome.  Claiming it!

Date Night!!

Oh my goodness! I’m so excited. I mean it. I’m adolescent preteen excited lol. Tonight, my husband and I are going on a date!
So, you may remember that S. and I found that we were having a lot of trouble communicating. Everything seemed to be about #ttc and then being intimate (not intercourse, but intimacy) just wasn’t happening. Holding hands, compliments, flirty looks, were all out the door. We were, quite honestly, in a not so great place. Frankly, it was a horrible place. While all marriages have their moments, it seemed like the frustration of not being able to conceive was weighing heavy on S. It isn’t lost on him (nor I) that sperm counts and morphology can have a pretty big impact on the male psyche especially when they aren’t doing what they are supposed to. I’ve never once cast blame or treated him harshly because of it. But I know it has to hurt his pride when he is the only married one in the family who hasn’t conceived a biological offspring. Add to that the confession of wishing to be able to increase the family by at least two and you know he is a bit distracted by this journey.

That’s why I’m so excited about this evening. Tonight, S. has booked a couples’ Swedish massage with aromatherapy followed by dinner for date night. We haven’t had a couple’s massage since April of last year. It was such an enjoyable experience and very relaxing. I hope this one will bring the same experiences. 
Have a wonderful evening and we’ll check in with you soon!
