Hotel Parents!

I highly recommend it and give it 5 stars!

This entire week, I spent the week with the rents! On Monday I was kidnapped and told I could not leave the house until my husband returned from his office.

SO... Monday I dragged my happy ass to the rents, only to be welcomed by home made shrimp scampi and soymilk already in the fridge (2 points!)

Tuesday, Mom and I ventured out to see what this swimming thing is all about. You see, for the past 6 months, she has been waking at 4am to swim for an hour and a half. And after attending an 11am class (there was no way I was waking up at 4am) I realized just how passionate she is about this sport. Not to mention, just how far she has come. In my youth, my mom couldn't walk up 4 stairs without having to take a puff on the inhaler due to her horrendus asthma. Now, she can swim 50 meters and just be a litle winded. Seriously INCREDIBLE! I was thoroughly impressed AND her coach had bragged about how far she had come.
Tuesday night was filled with spinach stuffed shells (my absolute favorite), playing cards with the baby bro, dad, and American Idol (David Cook, I heart you in SO many ways! I hope you win it all!)

Then, Wednesday morning I awoke to a freshly made onion bagel (from the local shop down the street) and hot brewed coffee! (10 pts for that!) Then at around 8:30am Mom and I headed out for a little retail therapy! We stopped at Starbucks (in case you forgot she had already eaten 2 meals and had swam for 2 hours- so she needed a little pick me up) chatted, and headed for the nail salon, where we got pedicures and beautiful eyebrows! Then, we headed home, grabbed my bag and headed over to my part of town for some shopping. We stopped at Khols and got the CUTEST flip flops, then we went to the mall, where we got cool clothes for the baby bro, a new bed comforter and some shoes.

Overall, it was one of the best weeks I have had, in a LONG time!

Today, I have a feeling, is going to be equally great! Hubs is home... YAY!!! And I get my hair done. Not really sure what colors I want to go with but I should be able to take a pic once I am done. You see, this is my last apt for a while, b/c my hair dresser is having a girl in a week and I should have Brady around April 4th (according to the doc.)

Any fun plans for the lot of you for today or Friday??

Your mom rocks. So cool that she's gotten into swimming- I love it!

Sounds like you had a great week!! :) Being at home w/the parents is the best sometimes - I am definitely relishing nursing my broken heart at home and not alone in new york city.
