We made it through my first weekend away. I only cried once late Saturday night. I was getting homesick and was sad that I was going to get home kind of late on Sunday. Turned out, I was gone exactly 48 hours.
Friday night, Chuck had a softball game, so my mom watched her and put Maddie to bed. Friday night, I went out with friends and danced and danced and danced.
Saturday, Chuck took Maddie to his sister’s house for lunch and then his mom came over in the afternoon to hang out. Saturday, I went shopping with a couple friends, we had lunch while we were out, then all 14 of us when on a pontoon for a while. Then had dinner and went out dancing again.
Sunday, Chuck tried to keep Maddie entertained when all she really wanted was to be in his pocket. Sunday, I woke up, had a tasty breakfast, then dropped my friends off and came home. We were all happy to see each other.
And Monday, Chuck and I happily went back to our jobs and were both very happy about it!
Chuck sent me pictures while I was gone. It was so fun to get some updates and pictures. Here are the pictures he sent me.
Chuck tried out our travel chair for the first time. It worked well, he told me.
Chuck’s mom and Maddie. Maddie is sticking her tongue out and Linda has a caterpillar toy on her leg that she made Maddie. (The caterpillar and something else she made Maddie deserve their own post!)
They played at the park. Chuck said Maddie was not interested in trying new things like the slide. And she wasn’t happy in the swing either. She is scowling in this picture!
Maddie with her very own remote!
Maddie LOVES soda cans.
I sent Chuck a couple pictures, too. This one was the purse I really wanted. It was $42 and I am too cheap to spend that much on a purse. But by the end of the trip, I almost stopped back and picked it up!
And then, this is me Saturday night. A friend who sells Mary Kay makeup did most of our make up and then another friend did my hair! And the shirt was borrowed from a friend. I looked a little scary, I know, but it was tons of fun and the girls said I looked awesome.
And finally, Sunday night before I put Maddie to bed, she snuggled right up on Chuck’s shoulder and I had to snap a picture. She looks so content and Chuck is so happy! I love this picture!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
