Week + Weekend Update

I had several people asking me, "If you were in recovery from surgery, how were you able to find time for blogging?" The answer is simple, peeps, I didn't blog. Not for a split second. I actually slept 90% of the time. The other 10% of the time was spent walking (really slowly) around the house for some exercise. So what I'm saying is that I scheduled those posts last week. I wasn't actually blogging. Silly kiddos.

On that note, let's talk about my week.

Monday was surgery. I was extremely loopy pretty much all day. Once we got home from the hospital, I just passed out like I hadn't slept in days. I decided that sometime in the near future I am going to write a post about my surgery experience in detail, including the recovery process.

Throughout the week, I had family and friends visit. It made me tear up to know how many loved ones cared so much to send a thoughtful gift or just call and check on me. I got several flower arrangements and lots of sweet treats. I am so grateful.

On Friday morning, I was just well enough to be able to drive myself to Sprint, order the new iPhone, and come back home to rest. I am pretty stinking excited that I ordered it though. I can't wait for that baby to arrive!!! Who else got the new iPhone?

Let's get down to the fun stuff; my weekend!
1. I couldn't believe this amazing weather this weekend. It was so beautiful outside. We soaked up as much of it as we could. I am not sure I could handle much colder weather, but I know that it's bound to happen.
2. Baby Colin arrived! I haven't gotten to meet him yet, but I will meet him very soon. One of my best friends from high school got induced late Wednesday night, and Colin made his arrival on Thursday. What a sweet baby.
3. This little girl makes me so happy. Just call me Aunt Allison, because that's basically who I am to Harper. No, not literally... but basically. Her mommy and daddy are good friends with Ross and I... not to mention her mommy and I are distance cousins. So I fully intend to be in Harper's life forever!
4. A little get-well-soon prezzie to myself!
5. Hubbs and I had a spur of the moment date night on Saturday. We did dinner and a movie... and booze.

To make things even cooler, we got to see a couple more pictures from our second anniversary photo shoot. Speaking of, only one week until we celebrate our anniversary. Time sure does go by fast.
***Last thing, please don't get mad at me blogger friends, but I do NOT understand this Phillip Lim obsession. What am I missing here??? I went to Target expecting to buy the same purse everyone has been buying (you know... this one), and I was just not impressed. It was the very last one, and I didn't even feel bad putting it back on the shelf. I can buy a better quality purse at Coach for the same price. Or there are some cuter Target purses for cheaper, like this one. After much debate, I knew I had to have that brown cheaper one. BUT, I decided to order it online through ebates so I could get some cash monay back. I'm pretty excited for a good mail day. Anyways, please let me in on the deets about PL. What am I missing here?

I'm linking up with Sami today. Tootles, y'all.

  3. That brown one is SO cute!! I think I need it. (And I agree that the black one is super cheap looking. Meg came over last week with the taupe one and it is MUCH better quality.)

  7. I got a purse at Target too but it was the PL bag. I don't get it either. I think they are too big which is odd for me since I like big purses. I would cry over not getting a purse either. Guess that's just me though.

  8. So I don't understand the hype either. I think they're cute, but I'm not crazy about them so I obviously was not at Target at 8 am to grab one. I'll stick with my current purse!

  9. I don't get it either!!! Someone please explain!!! After reading so much on twitter the weekend I guess they came out I looked it up and they were totally sold out on target online...which is just crazy to me!

    Hope you begin feeling better soon!

  10. Glad your surgery went well, I'm sure you enjoyed the relaxation time. So exciting that you have 2 new little babies that you get to spend time with! And, I haven't heard about that purse, but I like the brown one you picked.

  13. I don't understand the PL obsession either! I took my happy butt over to Old Navy and got a cheapo purse because I know I'll grow out of it! Glad you at least got a date night this weekend after your surgery. :)
