Being Brickner : Our Weekend

Our Weekend

I thought I would document our first weekend in 2015, I think I am still in denial that it's back to reality around here so I am holding on to that two-week break for as long as I can. ;)
As part of our fresh start to the new year, the one in which we give ourselves some grace, my husband decided to take a day of his own on Saturday before my spa day on Sunday.  While I crave family time, especially on the weekends, I thought it would be good for all of us.  So he went hunting, probably trying to get as much manly time in as possible before it's three girls in the house, while Waverly & I had a day all of our own.


We had a mall date in the morning, then went to the grocery store for some soup I was going to make for dinner.  Waverly is so talkative these days & always cracking us up, I have so many favorite comments from her but this one goes down as one of my favorites.  The sweetest older man was bagging up our groceries, he had a long white beard & glasses, she looked up at him & immediately yelled, "Mommy, it's SANTA!!".  I could have died, a little because I was nervous about how he (or the rest of the store) would react, but everyone just laughed.  Mostly, I was so proud of her for actually liking him after all their less than happy encounters over the holiday season. ;)

We also spent some time jumping on Waverly's new trampoline!!  My parents got her it (similar here) for Christmas, she is obsessed & I know it is going to get lots of love in our future.  She begs me to go out there even when it is freezing, I can't wait until the spring when we can really spend some time on it!


Sunday was my spa day, I had really gotten used to the idea of it, so it was a total letdown when I walked in & found out they had to reschedule because of sicknesses.  All is well that ends well, I have an appointment for next Sunday & Plan B was a trip to the zoo with Waverly & the hubs!  We had some random warm weather, it was absolutely perfect.

I'm not going to lie, heading back to work Monday morning was a little more than painful.  A few tears were shed rocking Waverly to sleep Sunday night, they probably had something to do with these pregnancy hormones, but I really hate leaving her after so much fun together.  Yet as always, it's way easier after you actually do it, & I am already looking forward to next weekend!
Hope you all had a great start to the week! XO

  1. What a fun weekend, despite the hiccup in your plans! Monday was so, so hard....I got the hugest hug from Cam when I picked him up after school!! However, I am so happy to be back to a routine and to have him in a routine! PS. Cam calls everyone with a white beard Santa, or he says, "What is that?" because he doesn't know the difference between what and who...it can be a little embarrassing!!

  2. That trampoline looks like every toddlers dream AND MORE! I love it! And although spa day was a bust the zoo looks like it was a BLAST!

    I swear it's pregnancy. I almost shed tears taking lex back to school and she's there for like 3 hours! It's these girls man!

  3. Considering the random warm January weather the zoo was probably more fun! Especially since you still get to have your spa day, just one week later :). Yeah I would imagine it's hard to go back to work after having a longer break. I always dreaded going back without kids, so I can't imagine how much worse it is!

  10. Oh you know Monday was hard for me! ;) How lucky your husband is going to be surrounded by so many beauties!! When baby #2 comes along I am secretly hoping it's another girl I would be so sad to not use all of Presley's adorable clothing again!

  11. Looks like she's having a blast on the trampoline! Sounds like you had a great weekend despite the spa day rescheduling. I'm sure it was hard leaving after being at home for so long! I am already dreading going back to work after baby gets here!

  14. Oh Waverly.... so cute! Mia doesn't point out "Santa" when we see a look alike at the store.... but EVERY old man has now become a "grandpa"... not her grandpa's, but they are ALL named grandpa. Ha ha!
    So sad you had to reschedule your spa day! But this weekend will be amazing with it ;)
