. . . for Lauren and Lauren: A night away

A night away

poncho: c/o shein

Last weekend Chris and I got to go away overnight and it was great.  Things lately have been super busy with Chris at work and weekends have been filled with busy plans, so it was wonderful to have 24 hours of uninterrupted time together.  We went to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin which is a little town about 45 minutes away from us.  We've stayed in the same hotel multiple times and we love it. There's a little fireplace and a huge whirlpool bathtub.  I took two baths while we were there and I even more so want a bathtub like that now!  


Clearly food dominates with picture taking.  We went to a cute little sushi restaurant, where we got to sit on the second floor right by the window.  Thanks to a super early dinner we were the only ones there for awhile.  It was snowing pretty hard and so pretty to watch.  Chris walked to Coldstone later that night and brought back delicious ice cream, and then we had a nice breakfast the next morning. It was so great to have so many long, nice meals with just the two of us.


I know it will be awhile until we get away together again, so we fully appreciated the time we had last weekend.  Sometimes it's hard to not feel stressed about how everything is going to change soon and wonder when we'll get some kid free time again.  But when I look back at the last two and half years with Addilyn they have gone so fast, and I'm sure I'll feel the same way looking back when we go away overnight for the first time after this baby is born.

And huge thank you to my sister in law, Aunt Lo for sleeping at our house! Addilyn was so excited to spend time with her and it's no wonder.  They went to McDonald's play place in the morning, a jumpy trampoline place in the afternoon, and played in the snow the next morning.  Addilyn will probably spend some good time with Lauren when this baby is born and it certainly puts my mind at ease knowing they have such a good time together!
