Weekend Update: I’m back!

I’m back and I hope I was missed, because I totally missed all of you!

I really can’t thank you enough for all the sweet words and prayers that you sent me and my family last week.

It was so appreciated. It was quite the struggle to get through last week, but in the end family was able to get together and support each other and we all survived!

One of the nice sides of last weeks bad news was getting to see some relatives that we hadn’t seen in a while.

One lovely relative even offered us up his Summer house in Rhode Island and me and Jon happily accepted.

Sunday morning we quickly packed, dropped off the pups at their grandparents house (thanks mom and dad!) and hit the road.

We arrived at this sweet little home  in Narragansett around 3pm.

We proceeded to quickly drop off our things and get back in the car to get our Crazy Burger fix! A local joint that we were told we must try out.


We then headed out to Newport! One of my favorite places on earth and took in some of the sights!

Jon also did some fishing off the rocks:

We then headed back into town where I momentarily ended my relationship with WW and had some yummy Coconut Seven Layer bar ice cream from Ben and Jerry’s and a small, teeny tiny sampler pack of fudge!


We then ended the evening with a stop at the local redbox to rent a video for the night and relax here:

Pretty much repeated the same thing Monday including the Ben and Jerry’s!

This morning we slept in, packed up and hit the road to get back home.

It was nice to get away for a bit, but I am so happy to be back at home.

Now Jon has already gotten right back into action and mowed the lawn, brought in all our bags, washed the car, etc.  I’m taking a bit of a slower place and can’t wait to settle in and catch up on all of my blog reading.

I’ll see you tomorrow!

Welcome back! Though these things are never easy, it was nice to see you were able to relax too. I lived in Narragansett while going to URI and we used to go to Crazy Burger and Newport all the time...your photos made me smile and think of so many fun times! Glad you're back!

Isn't it ironic how sometimes even the not so great moments in life have something to offer us? I'm so glad you were able to spend time with some relatives you hadn't seen and that summer house looks amazing! I have never been to Rhode Island but I would love to visit someday!! Sounds like you had a wonderful time, and I am so glad!

I was in Rhode Island for the weekend too! What are the chances? Me, a little ole gal from Alabama, in Rhode Island the same weekend as Mrs. High-Heeled Foot in the Door!

I wish the weather had been a little more cooperative... we didn't plan for the chilly nights and didn't really want it to rain... but it was pretty cool (for a girl from the south) and it poured all day on Saturday.

Sorry to hear about your tough week. With time..

Glad you are back! Yay for last minute vacations. I bought my fabric last week but haven't had a chance to make the curtains yet, hopefully this weekend!
