So I'm leaving work early on Friday, gearing up to hear my sweet little baby's heart beat when BAM! I pop a tire.
No. I am not joking.
Matt came to the rescue because I couldn't even figure out how to get my tire out of my car, let alone change it. Turns out I was missing a piece anyway. Who knew? So we took off to the appointment and left the Taurus to fend for herself. (Yes, the Taurus is a girl. My Shadow was a boy....the Taurus is a girl. Duh.)
Although late, we had the most wonderful appointment! We got to hear our little one at 156!! What a sweet, sweet sound :)
And then we stopped at Outback for a carryout Bloomin' Onion and salad. I literally could not stop talking about how cool I thought the online ordering and carryout for Outback was the entire way home. It was to the point I was annoying myself. But seriously, it's genius.
My in laws were coming for a visit and they arrived Friday evening. I warned them ahead of time as to the state of our home and of course they didn't mention a thing. In fact, I woke up Saturday morning to breakfast and my entire kitchen was cleaned. You have no idea how long it has been since I have seen an empty kitchen counter. It was glorious. In fact, I promptly asked them to move in with us.
The rest of the weekend, Matt and his parents spent some time roaming around the city whilst baby and I rested at home. We may or may not have gotten Donatos because we know how much Daddy hates it. And if anyone's keeping track, baby's with me on this one. Donatos = yum.
So by Monday morning when my in laws left...my kitchen was still spotless, my tire had been fixed, we had food in our fridge, and I didn't have to do a thing. I seriously could not have been more grateful. They took one look at me and knew I needed help....and that's exactly what they gave. And they were ridiculously happy to do it. I truly do not think I could've married into a better family. Not possible.
