Hi everyone! I have been a little preoccupied the past few days. Mr Flowers visited!!!!
I worked on Monday, and after work we met at my house for dinner and relaxing by the TV. He drove 8 hrs by himself, and my third 12 hour shift, ended on a crazy hectic note. We needed some down time
The past few days have included walking Andrew to school while drinking coffee. I have converted another person to iced coffee 🙂
We both walked Andrew to school, and then he needed to work a bit each morning. He trades stocks, and luckily he can do that from home. I am interested in what he does for a living, but I only understand about 5% of it. haha
While he worked, I would do laundry, or just sit and read. Yesterday, after work was through, we both were on the couch reading. The quiet was so relaxing and comforting. It was absolutely perfect.
After working or reading for a few hours, we would head to lunch. Some places on our list: Mom’s deli and Rigazzis’, and (my families favorite) Joey B’s.
While driving around, I was able to show him a lot of places that mean a lot to me. My old gradeschool, where I used to lifeguard during the summer, and houses of family and friends. I loved being able to share all of that with him.
We also had a big task this week. Find a house to rent. Mr Flowers and his girls are moving to St Louis in the next ‘few months!! (I can’t contain my excitement) I know this might seem fast for some, but the feeling we have is hard to explain (especially on a blog). I feel that I have know him MUCH longer than a few months.
He has already stolen my heart. And that is not something I give away lightly. We are also very lucky to have family and friends that are very supportive. I think I talk about him nonstop to my family and friends. (I’m suprised they keep answering my calls haha)
Our main “to do” was completed! We found a house for him to rent. We would then pick up Andrew from school and got homework out of the way.
Another task: Introducing him to the family. Thats right. We had a family dinner at my house with my immediate family. I wasn’t really nervous for them to meet. I knew he would fit right in. But I could tell he was nervous.
A few hours after dinner, ice cream, and letting the kids play, it was time for them to head home. I then received three texts messages saying that they really liked him, and they were so happy for me. (makes me tear up again just thinking about it)
Today, he had to head home. It was extremely tough to let him go. A few hours later, I found a note from him left on the frig. ❤
Mr Flowers will be back in two weeks, let the countdown begin……
Question for you:
Where do you take visitors when they come to your city or town?
Today, Andrew had a mom and me day. Between work, and just the hussle and bussle of life, we haven’t been able to just have a day for us.
After the gym, I grabbed an ice coffee
Andrew got a donut (not healthy. but its a mom and me day! haha)
Then it was off to the Magic House. If you ever come to St Louis, you MUST take the kiddos there. Basically, it is a place for kids to have fun with most activites being about science or just daily activites.
First up the vaccum. You place a ball in one place and it goes through the tubes, and out another based on the suction pressure.
Or you can drive a horse and buggy
Stand inside a huge bubble
Or climb and then slide
There are also multiple “stores”. This one was a pizza parlor
Of course, my favorite was when he tooked care of the babies
This is only a tenth of what they actually have to offer there. It is an amazing place~
After two hours, it was time for lunch! Pizza picnic
Then its time for legos and blanket tents 🙂
Question for you:
What is your favorite city to visit?
-I love going to ANY beach, but my favorite city is Chicago
How is everyone doing?!? Sorry I didn’t post yesterday, it was CRAZY!!!
Things Andrew and I got accomplished: gym, meeting, out to lunch, doctor’s app. for Andrew, cleaned car, played in sprinkler, and watched a movie w/ some ice cream 🙂
TIred just thinking about it. haha.
Bad new is: Andrew started with the sniffles and deep cough last week. We chopped it up to allergies and the bathroom remodeling. But yesterday, we went to get it checked out (it was just lasting too long) SO he has an ear infection, is getting his allergy medicine changed, eye drops, and nasal spray. UGGHH. not fun
And this is how I am spending my morning. Yep I now have the deep cough (thank you Andrew for all those kisses haha)
