I am running out of lap room over here. Tonight I am just thinking of how this little peanut will react to a new “baby” in the family. My prediction is she is going to transition smoothly. She knows she is my little “Littles” and this girl is as maternal as they come with her baby doll. Fingers crossed.
This non-maternity dress is darling, and I just love the light weight knit material, best part it’s under $100!
The weekend is here and the Birds could not be more excited. We are taking advantage of the beautiful snow we finally received and are off to the Mtns. Timing could not be more perfect, it’s the last ski weekend of the season. The combination of the new snow and the Stein Eriksen hosting my “baby moon”, I think this weekend couldn’t be more perfect:) let the good times roll I say, literally I feel like I am carrying around a bowling ball these days. Here’s to 30 weeks! 🙂
Although I didn’t technically “go” anywhere for Spring Break, and it’s not like my husband took off work for it, and that my kids have a crazy school schedule, but I will say this Spring Break was awesome. Technically this is my first Spring Break since ’07, high school. The college I graduated from didn’t give Spring Breaks so it was fun to experience that again.
I love crowds, crazy I know. I really enjoyed going to places where there were tons of other “Spring Breakers”, it made it feel official and like everyone was on holiday.
Good luck everyone whose coming back from a long break. I hope this Spring Break added a little “sping” to your step vs getting depressed it’s over. Whether you have finals coming up, need a little extra boost to get a head start on your spring cleaning, or some motivation to shed a few extra lbs before it’s officially pool season. I don’t know about you, but I have a bad case of spring fever!
ps the top I am wearing says it is a crop top, but it does not fit like one. I am wearing a size small and am super pregnant, and it wasn’t that short for being a non maternity and a “crop top” -I thought I would throw that in in case there were any concerns.
Excitement is in the air as this week is spring break! Anyone going anywhere fun? I wish I was, but instead I will be staycationing in my home. I did pick up this little number from Cool~Change, Cool~Change is a Bali brand so I feel like I am in or going to Bali 🙂 it’s the perfect coverup. I’ve said this a number of times, but seriously I cannot tell you enough that a coverup with sleeves is the only way to go. It feels so good on your tanned skin. This particular cover up won me over with the tassels and the sequins trim. I also love the colors.
At the end of every trip my husband and I always like to quiz each other on what the “PEAK of our trip was, and what the PIT was”
We always take turns back and forth and surprisingly we both came up with the same answers.
Our PEAK truthfully was everyday! We had so much fun with one another, but I would say that we both said the PEAK was after we wore the kids out they would both fall asleep in the stroller for at least 3 hrs and we got to do whatever we wanted. These parts of the day were our favorite:) we would either “adult swim”, the idea was to look like a cute couple with the girl wrapped around the guys back, but that didn’t workout so well due to the bump and the drag I was causing lol
Sometimes we would dash to our room, babies sleeping in stroller, shower up and go to fancy dinners. Babies still sleeping in stroller, and we get to have adult conversations.
Or we would just go to the room and … sleep
We were not expecting to have so much alone time, and every day we felt like little kids when the kids would start rubbing their eyes and want to get in the stroller. We would be like “I’ll get towels” “You put them in their pj’s” and we would start running to the room lol -life is good when you marry your best friend and someone who is funnier than you 🙂
The PIT. Ugh I hate to even write this but this was a crazy event that took place. I actually chose to block this out the rest of my trip bc I didn’t want to remember it.
One afternoon as we were eating lunch, we rock-paper-scissored who would go and change Hollands diaper, changing a swim diaper is the worst! -BTW I purposly stopped the potty training process bc we planned this trip, and I would hate for us to be the ones responsible for any pool to close down.
I lost, mid diaper change the alarm in the bathroom went off and the power was off. The power went out in one section of the Hotel, the Coral Towers. So we went back to our pools where there was power. We thought nothing of it until 6 pm when we headed back up to our room. We get off the elevator, the doors shut and that same alarm goes off and the power goes out. I hear screaming in the elevator. We were 2 seconds from being stuck in there. In pitch blackness we find our phones and run to our room. Thank heavens the keys work. Water isn’t working, no power, and no wifi. We ditch the stroller, get dressed in the dark, and carry our hungry and thirsty kids down 12 flights of stairs trying to find food and water. We are staying in the Royal Hotel, where all the high end shopping and Casinos are in. We get to the main street and see that a couple of places still have power. We wait for dinner for well over an hr. I take Hudson to the Bathroom and that darn alarm goes off and the whole rest of the island loses power. We are now starving and I am banned from going into anymore bathrooms.
We hear in the Coral Towers that there is a restaurant open and the gift shop. I am really missing my stroller by now. We buy tons of water and as many snacks as possible, who knows how long the power will be out? We wait for well over an hr to sit down at an Asian restaurant and well the alarm goes off again.
In pitch black we ask the hotel for a bag of ice. We carry two kids, all the water, food and ice up 12 flights of stairs, I am pregnant and am thinking I better not lose this baby. I am grateful that we were harbor facing and that our room was facing the yachts, I took comfort in their electricity and that they were watching t.v. Our room was soo hot that night and we had to open the door.
Because we were clueless about what was going on, no internet, no phones ect my mind was racing. I thought of the most bizarre things. I also checked on the people who had got stuck in the elevators and was so relieved that they were out. I was so distraught about being 12 stories up I wanted to tie all our sheets together just in case we needed a quick escape.
My husband, the calm one, told me to rest and that everything would be okay in the morning. I hardly slept. At 2 am the power came on and all my fears went away.
In the morning we decided not to talk about it and just enjoy our last day. We celebrated and went to the best buffet ever! We watched the sharks and stingrays and had another amazing day.
I am definitely going back to Atlantis, I am actually trying to figure out the best ages with the new little one on the way. We were thinking Disney Cruise next? Anybody ever been on Disney Cruise? What are your thought? I honestly don’t know a better place to vacation with or without kids than Atlantis.
Our PIT of the trip just reassured me that I always need to be prepared. This could of happened anywhere, even in my own home. Needless to say, I am now on this whole food storage kick and emergency water preparation. Holding my hungry kids and having them ask me over and over again when they can eat is the worst thing a mom can go through. I even thought about trying to breastfeed them, if things got bad enough. -I am the dramatic one if you can’t tell.
