days spent with a stripe-shirted boy

Last week, Chas stayed home from work for three days with a cold.

It was really fun having him hang around at home like a bum with me all day.
Felt like a surprise mini vacation!

We slept in.
Took naps.
Watched Cupcake Wars and dumb movies from Redbox.
Ate pizza (and cough drops).
Packed our hospital bag.
And got completely sucked into Friday Night Lights.

We soaked it alllll up, knowing this will be the last time that life will be like this.
Slow, quiet, just us two.

Good thing we both can't wait for that change of pace coming any day now!

Sounds wonderful. Everyone deserves a little babymoon before the bundle of joy arrives.

Aw, hope he's feeling better/stays feeling well! Mini unknown vacations are the best. Like 3 day weekends!

Ah my hubby took a week off right before I had our son too and it was excellent. I'm so glad that it happened now, because it was probably the most relaxing time of our lives as of late!

Samantha said...

Aww sounds like a fun couple of days! And you need it before you little one comes along :)

Gaby said...

that's probably exactly what you needed pre-baby, what a wonderful way to pause x

Mugdha said...

Aww, sounds perfect and relaxing, even if he was sick. Glad you guys got some alone time pre-little-one =]

It's sort of sad that we have to wait to be SICK to sit down and spend time with people!!! I blame work a lot for that. LOL xoxo

It sounds like, despite a little sickness, you got to have a quick 'stay-cation babymoon.'

It's almost time for that sweet little one!

That must be such a surreal feeling knowing that everything is going to completely change at any moment… I'm so happy for you and can't wait to blog-meet the little nug!!!!!!

I am such a ridiculous fan of Friday Night Lights. Isn't it an amazing show?
