Last week Jason was supposed to be in Orlando for a work conference. He flew there on Monday just to turn around and fly right back Monday afternoon after learning that his grandfather (who was in the hospital) had taken a turn for the worse. Jason felt like he needed to be there so after making it back to Houston on Monday night, drove to Dallas Tuesday morning where he stayed the rest of the week.
I loaded up the car Friday morning with Jack and Tucker and a car full of stuff and headed to Corsicana - Jason's hometown - to meet Jason. After a long and loud 3.5 hour car ride we made it just to get back in the car and head to Dallas. We visited Jason's grandfather for a bit in the hospital with Jack and then drove back to Corsicana for dinner with Jason's family. After getting Jack to bed, J and I had to take care of a few things at his grandfather's house.
I was very proud of myself for sticking with my diet during this hectic travel day. No bad gas station food for this girl! Too bad I didn't find any time for a 30 minute workout. Some days it's just not in the cards.
I had been looking forward to this day for a LONG time because we were headed to Tyler to see Ashley and celebrate her little one's first birthday - a red, white and blue BBQ! With all of the craziness going on I protected this day as if I was going to see the Pope. Ash and I may text daily, but we don't get to see each other very often so even though it was only for a few hours, it was high priority for me to be there!
The party was awesome - we had a great time and Jack had a blast watching the older boys, swinging on the back porch and eating birthday cake!
Of course I made my family was dress for the theme. Too bad I didn't get one picture of us together. I guess we will have to do a family outfit repeat for the Fourth of July to get a picture! #momfail
Jason wore a white polo and blue and white checkered shorts. I won't even try to find the links to those from JoS. A. Bank.
Jack wore a Hanna Andersson Baby Tanker.
He also sported the Hanna Anderson Baby Sleeper in "Seeing Stars" to continue the party theme into the evening! The star print is sold out online, but is still available (and on sale) at some stores including Houston.
|Excuse my appearance. This is at 8:00 after a very long day!|
The "Stars and Stripes" pattern is equally as cute and festive and is still available online, but quantities are low so order fast!
And I wore this Tommy Hilfiger colorblocked shift dress.
After the party on Saturday, we drove back to Corsicana for another family dinner and to visit with more family. That evening after everyone was ready for bed I made time for a quick 30 minute workout so I didn't get too off track. I ate pretty good on Saturday, but did splurge on birthday cake, a slice of Cheesy Jalapeno Bread and a few carbs after 6pm.
On Sunday we headed out to see Jason's grandmother at her nursing home. We took Jack and were able to have a little belated celebration for her birthday and mother's day. We went straight from that visit to lunch with Jason's father's side of the family followed by one more stop at his mom's house before hitting the road. It was another long drive with no naps for me since we were in two cars. I was so happy to be home!
Our house is pretty much in disarray since I didn't have anytime to go to the grocery store, finish the laundry, etc.
Don't you hate starting the week unorganized? I'm hoping to get a little more done this evening including a long workout...probably while watching Ladies of London!
