Happy Monday! This weekend was a mixed bag of stuff for us with some highs and some lows.
The main events from this weekend included:
~a 90 minute massage right after work which was heavenly
~MG made reservations at Rustico for a stress-free dinner date night out which included yummy beers, risotto tots (omg) and some delicious pizza
~Obsessively listening to the Hamilton soundtrack throughout the entire weekend thanks to Carly bringing it to my attention. It is incredible!
~MG and I made our way to visit my dad at the hospital for a few hours on saturday morning. We loved the nurse he had--she was so friendly, helpful and attentive
~Had a super late lunch at Seasons52 after our visit: mushroom bisque and mahi mahi tacos which were so delicious
~Got an early birthday present from MG when I found these adorable strappy Toms wedge sandals--definitely will be wearing these a ton once the weather gets nicer because they're super cute and really comfy!
~Took Coop for a long walk since it was in the 60s outside and then got ready to head to our friends' house for a birthday party
~Was in awe of the incredible spread that my friend made all herself (I didn't get a photo of it, but it filled an entire kitchen table and island, along with some counters. These delicious cupcakes and cookies were part of the spread
~Had a fun night hanging out with friends from work, drinking some wine, and laughing tons
~Woke up early and headed back to the hospital myself while MG ran errands and took care of laundry and other things around the house
~encountered the worst nurse that my dad has had thus far and did everything in my power not to go off on her....and I was pretty taken back when a doctor came in, toting her purse on her arm the entire time, even through her entire (one-handed) exam of my dad
~was totally disheartened with the people taking care of him Sunday, so I ended up staying longer to make sure he had what he needed before my mom got there
~Had an emotional good-bye with my dad before I left the hospital...he's hanging in there as best he can, but it's been really tough on him
~Had a tear-filled drive home followed by MG hugs when I got back
It was a pretty low-key, rainy rest of the evening. I ordered Thai take out because I had no motivation to think about making dinner.
Even though we had some fun moments this weekend, it was another emotional one for sure.
If you have any room in your prayers, please add my dad to them--my family and I really appreciate the love and support.
I hope your weekend was nice and filled with family and friends :)
