"Stay-cation" January 2012

My wonderful and amazing husband surprised me with a "stay-cation" this weekend! This was in celebration of our 4th anniversary (back in December) and just a relaxing time for the two of us with all the craziness we have going on in our lives this month. My parents kept Avery and Bailey for us beginning Saturday just after lunch through Sunday morning. Chris and I enjoyed our Saturday afternoon together by doing whatever we wanted on absolutely no schedule at all! We explored areas of Destin that we've never been before and enjoyed driving through the different neighborhoods. Chris then took me to my surprise "stay-cation" which was the beautiful Henderson Beach Bed & Breakfast! We checked in and then spent time on the patio overlooking the ocean and enjoying happy hour.... well, Chris enjoyed Happy Hour :)  We sat on the patio playing scrabble and eating the delicious food brought out to us. It was a beautiful spring-like day by the water. Once happy hour was over we walked along the beach and watched the most beautiful sunset. That night we enjoyed a scrumptious (and quite filling) dinner at the restaurant there at the inn. For all of you foodies out there who are interested in what we ate: my dinner started out with a crab cake for an appetizer, then a house salad and a petite filet. Christopher had french onion soup, wedge salad, and venison. This was all after our bread and complimentary appetizer! Of course we had to follow it up with bread pudding for dessert. YUM YUM!
We were so stuffed by the end of our dinner we didn't think we could even roll ourselves back to our room! That's the price you pay for some good food, I guess! We watched a movie then went to sleep only to be awaken at 1:30am to the blaring fire alarm! SERIOUSLY!??! We didn't have a child to be up for in the middle of the night, but yet we were still up in the middle of the night. What.are.the.chances...

Sunday morning we enjoyed a breakfast buffet and then got ready to check out. Chris and I spent the morning walking on the beach and soaking our feet in the hot tub before picking up Avery and Bailey. It  was the most wonderful "stay-cation" and I'm so thankful that Chris thought of doing that! We both really needed some time relaxing and some time together. If you ever have the chance to have an overnight "stay-cation" we strongly encourage you to do so!

another beautiful day! 65-70 degrees in January! AMAZING!

Sunday marked my 16th week of pregnancy! I seriously can't believe how quickly it is going by. My nausea seems to be gone for the most part and I've noticed my energy level has picked up some. Oh how I love the 2nd trimester- now if I can just clear up my face!! I mean, whatever happened to that motherly glow??

The BUMP at 16 weeks!!!!!
