We're Back!

What's up ladies?

We arrived back in the city late last Thursday night, but I'm only now coming alive. I've always heard that a vacation with kids is really not a vacation. It is so true. I feel like I need a vacation from my vacation. Don't get me wrong, we had a FABULOUS two weeks, but it was not your typical beach vacation! If you follow me on twitter, you have kept up with every little thing that has been going on. If you don't, you should. Click here to follow me and you can read all my recent tweets to catch up.

The quick recap. The flight to Bham was great, the baby slept 90% of the way. The wedding was beautiful, pictures to come. The baptism was perfection. Baby J looked and acted like an angel. The Sip-N-See quickly turned from a small gathering to about 60 of my MIL and my friends. It really was fun though and a great way to introduce the little man to everyone. The 4 hour car ride from Bham to South Alabama was hell. Baby J is not a fan of car rides, apparently he prefers short taxi rides only. What a little Yankee baby we are raising. Our 2nd anniversary was fabulous. We had a wonderful dinner, popped a bottle of champagne my father-in-law gave on the day of our wedding (only took 2 years to drink it), and the best part...my parents babysat. The beach was incredible. The weather was hot and humid, just the way I like it. Baby J went for his first swim and looked adorable doing so in his monogrammed t-shirt, smocked swimming trunks and monogrammed A. Tierney sunhat. I officially have a slight tan thanks to my sister and Mom watching the baby. I ate fabulous seafood to my hearts content. I spent an additional 4 days at my parents home and enjoyed the down time, golf cart rides, more swimming at the updated country club, and visiting with friends. The plane ride back (2nd leg from ATL to LGA) was hell, 5.5 month olds don't travel well when you are by yourself. To think I'm going to do it all again in just a few short weeks for my KD Pledge Class reunion that I'm hosting at our beach house. I'm crazy and I can't wait!

I'm making my way through laundry and emails. Please forgive me if I have not emailed you back. I'll get there, I promise. I hope everyone is doing great. I am so behind on your blogs, but I promise...I'll get there! I hope y'all had a Happy 4th of July. I've missed you.

So glad you are back- I've missed keeping up! BTW, I checked your twitter page and can't read anything on top of the background- maybe it's just my monitor though.

I'm so glad you had fun, and I can't wait to see all your pictures. I'm jealous that you had so much family time and so much seafood! B and I didn't consider how much time our two week honeymoon would take away from our normal vacation time up north. Luckily, two weeks in Spain isn't a regular occurrence in our lives, so we won't have to consider that very often ;)

Have fun catching up on laundry, groceries, organizing, etc.

Elizabeth said...

Baby J is just so scrumptious in his little hat. I'm telling my ovaries to pipe down already as I type this.

Glad you had a nice trip, but also happy that you're back!

Seige said...

So true about the vacation. Need one away with hubs alone!

I always sympathize with parents flying alone with babies-tough job!
