Not-So-Mommy Monday: Weekend Recap

Because we escaped to Miami Beach this weekend, this post has nothing to do about motherhood, as I was baby-free and enjoying my freedom.

We did many things... Most of which I forgot to take pics of. Whenever I'm having a really good time, I usually forget about cameras and pics. Anyone else?!

So the weekend didn't get off to a good start: We missed our flight. Hubs thought we could get to the airport in 45 mins at rush hour (it takes this long when you can go 80 on the freeway...) I said we would need to double that. He told me he does it all the time and it would be fine. I got him to leave early enough to give us an hour... Turns out, I was right and an hour is not enough time to get to DFW at 8am rush hour.

We get booked on the next flight and and head to the prestigious airport TGIF enjoy some cocktails.

Many hours later, we land to see views like this!

Hey Miami!

Hey Fountainbleau!

Hubs had work meetings to attend to Thursday through Saturday, so I spent my time at the pool. With $24 a piece cocktails. I don't want to know how much I spent. Yikes.

$24 for a cocktail... But I got this keepsake cup! Worth it, right? Right...?

Friday night was hubs' work awards banquet, so we had to get all dressed up. I bought a new cocktail dress and felt all fancy!

This was my partner in crime while our husbands were in meetings all day: Ashley. We shopped and pool-sided it and drank!


Dinner selfie... Because why not
Saturday morning I was DEAD to the world. Three days and nights of nonstop partying caught up with this old lady! So dead, in fact, that I retired to the room with a cup of tea by 8pm. Amanda from Meet at the Barre was in town AND at the same hotel as us, but between her planned activities and my planned activities, we never got the chance to meet up. Boo.

Sunday hubs was officially off the clock for work, and we spent it relaxing, shopping and going out to a nice dinner together. We went for Cuban food... It was good, but not my favorite.

Cuban sandwich, Oxtail stew, and fried yuca

Today we're likely in the air, flying home as you read this. We had a great time (probably more so me, since hubs was stuck in work meetings most the time) but are ready to get back to this sweet little baby!

Screen shot of a pic sent of our little man! Can't wait for baby snuggles. It wouldn't be a Monday post without at least one pic of him, right?!

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend as much as I did! I have to tell you though... With the holidays, holiday travel and this trip, I'm now very excited to get back into a normal schedule.

    I know you're ready to be home and settled by now. Yay for jetting off, even if only for a long weekend, right?

    1. Thank you! I would totally wear it all the time if the occasion permitted... Alas, I don't think I would like the dry cleaning bills from all the spit up that would end up on it, lol!

  6. Beautiful dress and ouch for $24 cocktails! Those nice resorts can be a bit ridiculous on their alcohol prices especially Miami & South Beach!

  7. I'm the same way! I'm always forgetting to take pictures when I'm doing fun things and I'm trying to be better at it but I also don't thing it's necessarily a bad thing. Cheers to finding a happy medium right?! You looked fabulous! I know your hubs was proud to have you on his arm! Glad you had a good time! A fabulous trip AND another "my wife is always right" story to add to the books?! That's an all around win my friend! ha! xx

  9. Ummmmmm of course we wore dresses from the exact same designer. I wouldn't have expected anything else. Gorgeous!!! I still can't believe we didn't make it happen! I mean.....that place is like 10 square miles I swear but next time we definitely need to coordinate better. Oh and did you see like all the 16 year old imports at the main bar.....ID's anyone? Actually anytime you are in the state of FL or I'm in Dallas it's on! Oh that sweet baby I hope you got tons of loving when you got home!
