When the boys are away…


When the boys are away…

…the girls find babysitters and go to the spa.

But seriously though, and it was an excellent life choice. The guys went on their annual away football game road trip this past weekend. This year they went to Auburn and I’m happy to say that the Aggies won!

In years past, the girls have either gone on another trip {hello Cape Cod!}, spent the weekend together or like last year, go to the same place {Nashville!} but did different stuff than them! This year, we opted for a well deserved day at the Houstonian Trellis Spa! Between the three of us we have a toddler, an infant and twins on the way. Like I said, a well deserved day at the spa!

Ali and I left our girls with their grandparents. It’s crazy to think that in just two short months, there will be two more babies in our group! 
We loved every second at the spa. We did plenty of talking and catching up, resting in the relaxation room and floating in the pool. We also all indulged in the most amazing massages we’ve ever received. Pure bliss. We felt super fancy and spoiled. It’s like we totally belonged there. If only the annual membership to the Houstonian wasn’t more than the cost of two of my cars. If only…I mean I felt like I was with my people! Lounging in robes, sipping champagne, chatting with my girls without a care in the world. 
After several hours at the spa, we decided we were hungry and a late brunch was necessary. Cue The Tasting Room. I had a grapefruit mimosa, chicken and jalapeno corn cakes  

After brunch it was time to get back to our babies. I headed back to Sugar Land and hung out for a few hours before joining my friends from work for game night! We usually have one about every other month, but it had been a while. Chloe and I had fun, but little miss decided that we needed to leave a bit earlier than I would have liked. She said she was done and needed to sleep. I decided to just head back to Sugar Land and spend the night at my parents’ because I could and it was nice to have some extra helping hands with my crazy toddler.

My dad was up waiting for us when we got home and snapped this perfect picture!

Sunday morning was the exact opposite of Saturday morning. Instead of relaxing and lounging, I ran 6.2 miles! Of course, it was the run that I was supposed to do Saturday morning, but I put it off. It was an excellent decision. Aunt Dianne took Chloe on a walk while I ran! It was nice being able to get another long run in without the jogging stroller. I will say, running with the stroller makes runs without it so much easier! So here are my last week actual workouts and my plans for training this week!

I didn’t really get many pictures or do anything too exciting this weekend besides the spa day. Instead of babbling on about nothing, I’ll leave you with this picture of my perfectly crazy baby girl.

Happy Monday y’all!

Ladies, what do y’all like to do when your husbands/significant others are away?
Guys, what types of things to you do when your ladies are gone? I really am curious on this one!
