Father's Day Weekend Recap

Jun 18, 2012

warning: picture overload!!

This past weekend started off so perfectly. Fridays always put me in the best mood (obviously!) but even more so now that my bosses have allowed us to have "beer thirty" again which we hadn't done since before I was pregnant! In the afternoon my coworkers and I will run to HEB across the parking lot, buy some beer and pretzels and wait patiently for 5:30. Then we sit on our office balcony and drink for the last half hour of the work day. I may have a lot of complaints about my company but this ain't one of them! ha.

That night, Ronnie and I hung out at home with the babes and just relaxed. I toted her around in the Baby Bjorn a lot because that's her favorite way to be carried now, facing out. Apparently she's just too big now (at the old age of nearly 4 months) to be carried like a baby. ha. It was a good night!

Saturday, Violet woke up in such a great mood (and so did we) after a good night's sleep so we brought her to our bed and she started to halfway roll over! It was so funny because she'd roll to her side and just lay there so relaxed, like she was just too tired by this point to roll any further.

I decided since she was so hyper and happy that I would have a quick photo shoot with her in a couple outfits that she hasn't been photographed in. What I forgot is that she HATES having her clothes changed so that lasted oh, about 2 outfits :) But I got some really cute pictures on our digital camera. (these are from my phone!)

Thank you again, Lauren for the adorable peacock tutu!!
Then I caught up on cleaning and laundry and we did a whole lot of Violet entertaining. We finally pulled ourselves together at some point and went shopping for Father's Day gifts for our dads. After 3 stores, Violet had enough and we headed home for another laidback night.

Hey, remember me? I'm Sibley.
Finally on Sunday morning I let Ronnie sleep in for Father's Day morning. It was a nice gesture but I was dying by 11 am and we were out.of.freaking.coffee!! When he got up, Violet and I were playing in her room and that's where we gave him his gift. Since we're trying to save money  he said no gifts but I had a Shutterfly.com coupon for a photo book so I jumped on that! (I'm dedicating an entire blog post to that amazing little book this week!). Unfortunately the really cute card I'd ordered Ronnie from Treat.com never showed up last week like it was supposed to! so I had to improvise and made a little outline of Violet's hand. It wasn't easy getting her little chub hands to stay down so it came out wonky but Ronnie loved it! Thankfully treat.com refunded my money and resent another card which should be here today or tomorrow.

Tutu's her nickname...I don't think I've ever mentioned that! ha

The rest of the morning was great, spent with our super smiley girl. Just last week she discovered her feet so she's constantly trying to grab them. It's so fun to watch!

That afternoon we met up with Ronnie's dad and two sisters at La Hacienda for lunch. Their patio is amazing! It's covered by tons of trees so even on hot days it doesn't feel like it. They had all their fans and misters on so that combined with the slight breeze was heaven! Apparently Violet thought so too because she crashed out at the beginning of the meal and didn't wake up once.

Ronnie's mom decided last minute to have a dinner for Ronnie's step dad so he went over there last night and me and the girl went to my parents'. We had a good time and she loved seeing them!

It was seriously a great weekend. I honestly couldn't have chosen a better man to be Violet's daddy and we're so lucky to have him. He's amazing with her and while SAHD/student was not a title he thought he'd ever have, he's a pro and I never once have to worry about him or give him instructions. He is just the best dad. and omg is Violet a Daddy's girl. She could be having the time of her life laughing and cooing at me but the moment Ronnie walks into the room, I am completely forgotten. And that's ok with me - I love that they love each other so much <3

Hope y'all had a good weekend too!!!

Linking up with Ashlee & Savanah

That last picture is sooo cute! I love her nickname! Nolan's is Pie and Milo's is Mi, but I call both of them Lou. I have no idea... Haha! That sounds like such a great weekend. I only let Jacob sleep in until 9:00, so you get MAJOR points for 11:00!

Your car looks just like ours!!! I've never seen one that looks like her, she has unique markings.
Looks like a fun weekend. We bought an ink pad from micheals when Mackenzie was little and do handprints for just about everything. 1 in 10 times we get a good print. :)
