Pitch Black Monday


Yeah soooooo driving to work in the pitch black this morning was not awesome. I knew it was coming but I much prefer driving to work watching the sun come up. I felt (and feel) like I should still be doing this...


It was hard to get up because this weekend was just too good. We had a dinner party, went on 2 lunch dates, watched movies, and basically did none of the stuff on our to do list...aka perfect. As much energy as I have during my 2nd trimester, I have also mellowed out a LOT. Pre pregnancy I would have a list a mile long of things to do over the weekend and just knock em out one after the other whereas Jon would be begging me to sit down and relax for 2 seconds...which I am more than happy to do now. Our little man is moving around like crazy and I love it! It also makes mama moving around a little tough haha.

We watched 2 movies this weekend... Friends with Kids and Jeff, Who Lives at Home (both Netflix instant watch). We really liked both but were just annoyed at how Friends With Kids pretty much said your life is over when you have kids. Maybe that is how it is in Manhattan? I know things will change but in our eyes, it will be for the better. It was a funny movie though. A little too raunchy but a good laugh. 

Will you still love me the mostest??

Speaking of babies...we totally have a toddler on our hands with Ernie. Love this munchkin to pieces but boy can he be moody and a pistol. He turned 2 in November and I see many similarities with him and human 2 year olds. Everytime we tell him to take a break from his ball, he goes and pouts. He makes it a point to face away from us like we are going to beg him to come back so we can throw his slime-y tennis ball. 


I know this week is spring break for lots of schools and it makes me ask myself, why didn't I become a teacher? (oh wait I ask myself that every spring break, Christmas break, and summer break). No break for us...although next week I get to go out of town for a training so that is kind of a break from the norm, eh?

Anyone doing anything for spring break?

I wish I had fun plans for spring break, but I have to work! I do plan on heading up to Austin this weekend to hang out with friends at SXSW though!
I hope you have a great week :)

Ernie is so sweet, just love his little face!! :)

I'm wishing I had spring break this week, too. It was so hard when I was at my first real job and finally realized I would no longer get a spring break. Sad day! Haha!

I know what you mean about that "i shouldn't be awake" feeling this morning, when my alarm went off I felt like I had JUST fallen asleep! Love that Ernie is like a toddler about pouting, our lab, Sookie has this new thing where she not only turns away from us when she is angry, but also keeps looking back at us to see if we've noticed she'd mad haha.

I had a HARD time getting ready for work this morning! :( And Grace totally does the same thing if we don't do what she wants us to do! :) So funny!

KrissyGirl said...

Oh Ernie!! It's funny because our puppy just turned 6 yesterday but we always say he still acts like a 2 year old. He cries if he doesnt get his way and is SO mean and moody..who knew that such a little thing could be moody that much!

Yay for spring break!! It's not really a "break" since I only have classes two days out of the week. We're doing day trips basically. Beach today, mani pedi tomorrow and so on...I'll be recapping it on the blog so you stop by later this week :)

Glad you had a great weekend!

I am questioning my judgement on this one, but I am taking the boys camping at the beach for a few days for spring break. My mom and dad both work for schools so they take the entire week to go camping. We're going out a few days in and leaving before them, so I'll be driving across the desert alone with 2 kids (Ben has to work). It should be.. interesting?? But I can't wait to get there and relax on the beach for a few days and have help with the kids!

It was SO hard getting up this morning when it was dark. I was more than happy laying in bed, all warm and cozy. Sadly I had to go to work to be able feed our cat (or that's what I tell him when I leave in the morning anyways)!

Kait said...

Awe Ernie!! Love him! Sounds like you had a great weekend :)

Heather Leigh said...

Aww, Ernie is the cutest!! I bet that face of his makes you melt. ;)
Sounds like a great weekend =D I'm so looking forward to spring! Just going on walks with my new little family makes me super excited!!

So little Mr. Pouty pants is just trying to get his way before he meets the other little man.

KRISTIN said...

Daylight Savings is totally messing with me! UGH! So glad that you are taking time to rest and relax...so important! xo.

Erin said...

Haha- I ask myself on every 'break' why I'm not a teacher, as well! Coming from a family of teachers - both parents at one point, my sister, aunt, cousins you name it... I def question my education choices often ;)

Your dog is just the cutest!

I am not doing a thing for Spring break....and that makes me happy! (I am also not a teacher haha!)

We watched friends with kids while I was pregnant and I had the same thought! I didn't like how it made becoming a parent look like the worst thing in life. Now I can attest that it's legitimately the best thing ever :)
