Blogging Break + Catching Up

Oops! I didn't mean to fall off the face of the earth... but life happens, I guess.

I've been super busy the past few weeks being a mom and all... and we also had a few visitors right in a row, which has ever happened since we moved to Dayton... and if I'm being honest, it's because no one wants to visit Dayton. It's crazy what a cute little baby will do.

My mom flew out to visit Annabelle, and she was able to be here for her five month birthday (five month post coming tomorrow - over two weeks late!) We had a great time going to lunch and hanging out for a few days, and she even babysat for us so Lieutenant Lovemuffin and I could have a date night! We went to Texas Roadhouse and then FINALLY saw The Martian at our local dollar theater. It was sold out FOREVER here, and since I read the book, I needed to see it. It was pretty good.

Shortly after my mom left, our friend Lydia (one of Dan's best friends) came into town, and we were able to go watch Lieutenant Lovemuffin defend his thesis for his Master's degree, which was awesome. Shout-out to my friend Megan for watching Annabelle so she didn't cry during her daddy's presentation.

After Lydia left, our friend Michelle came out for a few days! We were best friends in college, and she is definitely one of my closest friends for life. She is pregnant with her first right now, so we took it easy and just did a lot of talking.

It was amazing having so many visitors, but I am flat out exhausted now. We're back to our day-to-day lives, which is welcome at this point. We only have about a month left here in Ohio, so we're trying to soak up all of the good things about it that we know we'll miss.

I'll update on our upcoming move soon!

  • Have you ever had back-to-back visitors?



  1. I can't wait to have a house and host visitors!

  2. Whew, lots of people, but sounds like fun!

    I still need to watch The Martian.

  3. Sometimes it's nice to take a little bit of a break and have some fun with great friends and family!! :) Sounds like a busy but very fun time.

  4. Having visitors is so much fun but also exhausting at the same time. :)
