Stay-cation: day one

This morning at the crack of dawn Natalie and I took Keith and Brady to the airport. One of Keith's best friends is tying the knot and unfortunately we couldn't all afford to go, and there was no way Keith was going to go gallivanting around SC while I was at home with both kids, so we decided Brady would join him. It makes it much easier on me, so I can actually get some unpacking done! And I think they are going to have a terrific time!

I am glad Natalie is here with me. She is such a fun little kid to be around, when she isn't in trouble for being bossy or mean to Brady! After dropping off the guys we picked up some breakfast from Burger King. I LOVE their breakfast stuff, and I am never in the position to get it, so this was a great excuse! Mmm...

While Natalie was at school I ran some errands, and lazed about the house. Much different without my little buddy there with me. I missed him (but I am trying NOT to think about that). I had some seriously good luck at TJ Maxx for a few things we needed for the house. I love that store! I know I have said that a million times before, but dang! I love it! Need to get me a gift? TJ Maxx gift card baby! LOL

After school we unpacked a bit, and then crashed till 5 o'clock! After more unpacking (on my part) and watching Finding Nemo (on her part) we decided we were hungry and made bagel pizzas. She is so fun to cook with, and since she got a gorgeous new apron from Auntie Danielle we had to try it out (we love it, and it fits perfectly!).

It is so tempting to eat out when it is just the 2 of us. But I restrained and we even had a healthy fruit salad for "treat". (Aren't you proud of me Keith? Now we just have to chip away at all the leftovers...)
After dinner we headed to the bathroom, where Mama did some more unpacking and Natalie got to play makeup! She spent moving day at a friends house and they did play makeup and ever since she has been asking me to play. So we broke out some glittery stuff she got for her 4th birthday (I know, I am so mean that she only just now is using it!) and then I dug around my stuff and came up with some blushes, lipsticks, and eye shadows that she could go to town with.
This girl had So. Much. FUN! And she looked adorable!
Cheese! You can't tell but she has so much hot PINK blush on! And the eyeshadow from the glitter kit was like paint, she had globs all over her sweet eyes. We went over technique a bit once she started putting it under her eye too! LOL! I want her to learn early since I never really did.
She said she was ready for a party! Glitterific!

After the makeup extravaganza it was off to the tub to scrub it all off, and in to (Mama's) bed. I was able to get so much done today, lots and LOTS left to do, but it isn't as daunting, and it is nice to have a goal to get most, if not all, of it sorted and unpacked as much as I can before the boys get back. Let's hope this girly weekend stays fun, and no more missing you tears from either of us!

We love you Daddy and Brady!

Sounds like y'all have been busy, busy, busy! What a fun time to spend with Nat. Glad you like the apron, the boys have some at our house and at my parents. Since they are still little and bibs would never stay on, these do the trick! Thank heavens for Natalie otherwise I would never be buying anything pink or purple!

I love the fact that she's cooking! Great photos of that. And what a smile, she obviously enjoys her time with mommy.
