T-G-I- M-Effin'-FRIDAY!

And the best part is that it's the first day in three weeks that I can sleep past 5:30AM. It's been fun being a working girl for a couple of weeks, but I'm happy that it was only a short contract. It's ca-razy how much harder it is to juggle work and Will now that we are in this flight school situation. Shout out to my sweet hubby for keeping the dishes done and cooking me dinner a few times in the past couple weeks. Every little bit helps.

Driving four hours round trip in a 24 hour period by my lonesome didn't exactly help, but quality time with my family just can't be beat. Not to mention... reason #1583937 that I love being so close to home is getting to witness my niece grow up. I am definitely soaking up every milestone for her that I can, and her first birthday party can be checked off my list.






Yes, I know...owls are following me everywhere.




My Brother and SIL did an amazing job on everything, and it was awesome to catch up with extended family that I haven't seen in years. I got a lot of "You were suchandsuch age last time I saw you, and you still look suchandsuch age!" What none of us could believe is our little princess is already one! As such, we had the essential cake smashing, and it doesn't matter how many times I've witnessed this, they crack me up every time. A baby on a sugar high with terrible motor skills is one of life's greatest gifts. I mean...just look at that face!




She's one of life's greatest gifts on her own. She's just SO CUTE I could EAT HER UP. A'ight. Now it's time for me to get an actual nights sleep. Boy do I need it! I hope you all have a great weekend, and we will most likely be back to regular scheduled programming next week!
Ciao for now ;)
