I'm Back!



So good to be home!! We got stuck in a hotel an extra day on the way home thanks to a nasty blizzard. It took us 3 hours to go 100 miles, and the roads were awful, so we stopped for the night a second day. The kids loved it, so it made for an easy time.

While visiting the in-laws, Damon and I took advantage of the free childcare and went to dinner for our 9th wedding anniversary. We went to the place where my mother-in-law threw us a reception a couple months after our wedding since we were married in Antigua.

We headed for home on Wednesday evening, but only made it about 1.5 hours thanks to the beginning of the storm. There were blizzard warnings everywhere on our route, so we felt it best to stay put.


The next morning, we thought we'd be ok so we headed out once more, but that's the day we stopped after 100 miles because the roads were scary dangerous! We saw so many cars in ditches, and white-knuckled it the whole time.

There's a freeway somewhere under there.

I took advantage of the excellent hotel fitness center, and walked/ran on the treadmill at an 8.0 incline for 35 minutes, and did shoulders & abs according to LiveFit. I stayed on track during vacation thanks to guest passes to my in-laws' gym, and finished week 3!



There was also a Super Target right next door to the hotel, so of course I had to go. We were getting low on snacks and Pull-Ups for Emma, after all. This wasn't any Target either. This is the one I used to drag Damon to when we were dating. Awwww!

The roads were MUCH better by yesterday morning, so we pushed it all the way home. We were all so ready to be back!


HOME!!

    1. Thank you!! I cut it way too short about 6 weeks ago, and it's just grown out enough for me to be happy with it. This was a particularly good hair day. :)

  6. Omg I HATE the snow-driving. It gets my adrenalin pumping for hours and can't sleep even when we get to where we are going. Glad you made it home safe. Glad you had the smarts to stop!
    So I got a fit-bit like thing for Christmas and thought of you! It's a jawbone one. Going to try and get into the gadget-ing of it all!
