Happy St. Patrick's Day!

This week has been so busy, and I’m just now getting a chance to write! By the way, Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

So, Friday morning, Phil headed to Clarksville, and SURPRISE, they decided to cancel for the weekend. So, we decided to take a last minute trip to St. Louis/Rolla.

Natalie and Brandyn came over for dinner on Friday night. We had some BBQ pork sandwiches we had in the crockpot all day. It was good, but not as good as when we had made it before. Exact same recipe though, kinda strange.

Once they left, we cleaned up the house real quick and got on the road to St. Louis. Charlotte slept for the first 3 hours, and screamed for the last 2. Of course, I was driving the first 3 and Phil was sleeping, then when we switched, and I was supposed to sleep, but she was awake. We got there close to 2 a.m. Saturday morning Phil left for Rolla for St. Pats and alumni stuff at Beta Sig. I decided to stay in St. Louis with the baby. I did not want a cranky, tired baby, plus I don’t think she would have been too happy with the car ride.

So, we had a good visit with Phil's family and I think Phil had a good time in Rolla.

We came home Sunday afternoon and my parents came Sunday night. It was so so so good to see them! They got in late, so we went to bed pretty soon after they came home, but the next day we spent time playing with Charlotte, Mom and I went shopping (lots of new clothes, yay!) while Dad babysat. We made Veal Parmesan for dinner and it was tasty. Charlotte just loved it, and made a huge mess. Phil even got to come home early (about 6:30, should again today too) and we played POP 5. Natalie came over after her Opera practice to play the game with us.

This morning, we got around, played with the baby, and went to lunch at Panera, it was tasty! Charlotte even ate a whole sandwich and some yogurt! But now the parents have left and the baby is sleeping. Its time to get the house all cleaned up and get on with our regular lives, for a few days anyways. Next weekend I'm probably going to go to St. Louis and spend some time up there.

Here's a picture of Charlotte and Phil playing when he got home early yesterday. She was very happy to see him and they love playing together!!


  1. What a lovely weekend! My daughter loves the picture of your husband and daughter. For some reason she thinks it is her daddy and brother ;)

  2. Charlotte looks so funny upside down! Cute! I'm glad you had a great weekend, this post really explained what you were doing this weekend, I was kind of confused! That's brave of you to go hang out for a weekend with the in-laws by yourself. I'm not sure I could do it. Maybe if I had a baby it would be easier, lol! I don't blame you for not going down for Pat's. We went to the parade this weekend in downtown Denver and it just wasn't the same. It seems no one truly cares about St. Pat's outside of Rolla. We were going to go to the alumni St. Pat's event, but forgot!

  3. Awe. You should've come down to Rolla and we could have had lunch or something. :) Maybe go throw some eggs at people too. Doesn't that sound like a fascinating pass time?
