MIA on the blog

I have been a little out of touch with the blogging world this last week. Yet, for good reason... I was able to escape with my man for 5 days, 4 nights.  I can't even begin to tell you how great it was... it was absolutely glorious!

Mr. Steady earned the trip as part of President's Circle with his company.  They put us up at Terrenea Resort up in Rancho Palos Verdes.  It is beautiful, if you can ever get a chance to go, you better go!  His company covered all of our meals and even a treatment at the spa.  We were SOOOOO spoiled!

It was really hard being away from the kids, especially Baby Bro. But he did awesome for my mom, and took bottles like a champ!  The big kids did pretty good too... few melt-downs from Bug, one day with no nap... but they all survived!

... but back to my time away with Mr. Steady.  We enjoyed our time at the spa, eating amazing meals, eating dessert at every meal (oh, this will be a hard habit to break), going on walks, talking without being interrupted, dancing to the music of the band, getting dressed up, not having to worry about being spit-up on, going to bed whenever we want, waking up when we want (okay truth be told I never slept past 7am), celebrating all of Mr. Steady's accomplishments, getting to meet and spend time with other people that appreciate my man and all his hard work.  The lack of noise was a treat too!

 I am feeling refreshed and reinvigorated as a mom, wife and woman!  We had so many great conversations about this last year, the year ahead and even thoughts on the next 5-10 years.  We talked about ways we need to grow as parents and celebrated areas of personal growth.  Something about escaping the 4 walls of our home, gave us new perspective on all of life.

Getting away was quite a treat!
