Sleep Eating, Movie Night, and Floor Picnics

Sadie had her ophthalmologist appointment earlier this week to check on her nasolacrimal duct obstruction and we found out she doesn’t have to have surgery on her eye! Thank you so much to everyone that prayed for her eye to heal. The blockage in her tear duct is slowly clearing up! 

She was such a champ at the appointment–during the eye exam, eye drops to dilate her pupils, and then another set of eye drops to better see inside her eyes. As a reward, I stopped at Dunkin’ on our way home and bought her a couple of munchkins. She must have been so worn out from the excitement of the day that she literally fell asleep while eating, haha.

We also had a little picnic on the kitchen floor the other day. I was making lunch and she was playing with her dollhouse so happily on the floor nearby so I just brought our lunches onto the ground and we played and ate together.

The little moments are just the best ❤

We also had our first family movie night this week! We pushed our couches together, ate snacks, cuddled under blankets, and watched Cars. Kids movies are my favorite 🙂

Sadie was pretty into the movie. I wasn’t sure how long it would keep her attention, but she watched a decent amount. I fell asleep near the end and she and Jimmy were just standing over me and giggling once the movie was over, LOL.

It’s Friday as I type up this post and man am I ready for the weekend. We have had a crazy past couple of days. Niva jumped our fence and went on a little joy ride run around the neighborhood on Wednesday and the person that found her tried to keep her. It has been quite the nightmare and we unfortunately had to have the police involved. Ugh. 

Thankfully Niva is safe at home now, but is limping and has torn up paws. We don’t know where she went or what happened, but she’s definitely spooked. Poor thing. She’s been getting tons of cuddles and laying low the past few days! In fact, she’s laying on Sadie’s trampoline as I type!

Tell me about your week!

I’m back!

It’s tough to come from sunshine to snow!florida1

My mom and I had the most amazing time in Florida. I’m so happy that we had the opportunity to spend time together in such a beautiful place! We stayed in St. Petersburg, Florida from March 1st-March 5th at Tradewinds Grand Island Resort.

I knew our trip was going to be amazing the second we got our rental car after our plane landed at the Tampa airport. We were supposed to get a basic rental car, likely a two door Chevy Aveo. The woman who was helping us asked if we were on a mother-daughter vacation and we said yes. She said “I’m going to hook you girls up!”

She definitely hooked us up. 2013mustangShe upgraded us to a 2013 Mustang. That was pretty awesome.

The St. Petersburg area was experiencing a cold front while we were visiting.IMG_5068Unfortunately, the highest the temperature was only about 65 degrees. But it was definitely refreshing coming from chilly Pittsburgh.

We still spent some time on the beach though! IMG_5108flipflopsI can’t even describe how good it felt to wear flip flops for the first time in months!

I also got the opportunity to run on a local trail. PinellastrailWe did a lot of fun things and saw some pretty cool sights, but my absolute favorite part of the trip was every moment I spent with my mom.florida2
