Happy Monday // Good Baby Appointments & Hannah's 14th Birthday

If I told you I was starting this Monday morning bright eyed and bushy tailed, I'd be lying. And not because I don't have a tail. It's because after weeks and weeks of no caffeine, I still don't believe myself when I tell myself to not have chocolate after 3 p.m. And of course, I had a delicious cup of homemade hot chocolate compliments of my bestie {who, if reading this needs to refresh me on that recipe..} Sunday night. Big mistake, huge. Me and the clock were still keeping an eye on each other this morning at 1 a.m. Darn that delicious hot chocolate.
But how about a weekend recap to get things going?
I was off Friday, so I met my mom and our friend Tracee for lunch at my favorite sushi place Ichiban. As usual it was delicious and I enjoyed the time with my mom and Tracee. Afterwards I met Ethan at the doctor's office for our 2nd appointment for Baby M! It was a great appointment! We heard the heartbeat almost right away. Wish I would have asked her what it was, but it must have been good because Dr. Payne didn't seem concerned. I got my flu shot {that hurt like a mother... you know the rest} and we scheduled our next appointment which will be the anatomy scan for February 27th! Woo-hoo the countdown is ON for the gender reveal!!
Saturday I lounged around the house all morning while Ethan was out playing golf. I ended up heading to my parent's house to take my sister out for a birthday mani/pedi. I can't believe my little baby sister is 14 now! Later that evening we went to Oops Alley for her bowling birthday party.

After Hannah's party we went to a bonfire at our friend's house. It was so much fun just sitting around on the back porch, eating smores and laughing our butts off at each other! How cool is this homemade firepit? It's an old washing machine drum that has been coated in heat-resistant paint and had legs welded to it?! It was the best and we will definitely be getting one for our back porch one day!
Sunday afternoon Ethan played golf again. I mean, I can't really blame him, our weather has been amazing this weekend! I went a mini girl's road trip to Destin. The weather was great until the sun went down then it was just cold and windy! The best part was getting Chipotle again for dinner! Oh, and spending time with Katie and Taylor. That was pretty great too! ;) Haha!
Of course we didn't get home till almost 9 p.m. and I needed to do laundry, but thank goodness I had that double shot of espresso hot chocolate because I was able to stay up for my laundry.. and then some! An early bedtime is definitely calling my name for tonight!
Hope everyone had a great weekend and wish a happy work week to everyone!
