Swept Away....

Hello everyone out there in the blog world! I know I have AGAIN fallen off the blog planet! Things were just so crazy with the end of school. But now that school is over I will be posting WAY more. To start with after this post I will post a few posts later this week about things that have happened since my last post, but for now I want to fill you in on what has happened this past weekend.

Well to give you some background information I have been REALLY stressed these last few weeks of school. I just felt like my days never ended school would just follow me home and I had no time to rest. And to top things off I had trainings for school this week and next week so I needed my classroom all cleaned up by this past Friday, because oh yeah I have to move classrooms. Like I don't have enough to prepare and do over the summer, you know with the upcoming arrival of our sweet little man.

So Friday I was hitting the ground running finishing my end of the year checklist and then working on cleaning up my classroom when William called and wanted to know what time I would be done. You see we had arranged for a dinner and movie date that night to celebrate the end of school and stress. I knew it was raining and kindly asked him if he finished up work early I would greatly appreciate his help. And him being the sweet husband he is around 1:30 he called and said that he was on his way to come and help. I was so happy to hear that because I was sure that I would NEVER finish it alone. So he and I worked and finished at about 3:45. I will be sure to post a picture of the final result of my classroom as soon as possible, because it is funny how many things you can stack on top of each other.

So with my classroom clean I turned in my key and we headed home. A few minutes after we walked in the door William was giving me a hug and asked me if I was relieved. I responded yes and I could not wait to rest. Well he responded with you can't rest yet you need to pack a bag because I am taking you away for the weekend. I asked where we were going and of course it was a surprise, and I LOVE SURPRISES! So I packed and we were off.

I soon found out that we were going to St. Augustine, to hang out at the beach, spend some time in old town, go to the IMAX to see Night at the Museum 2, and do some outlet store shopping. I was so excited!

When we got to the hotel we checked in and headed out to dinner at Barnacle Bills, to eat some yummy fried shrimp "mmmmmmmm". We finished Friday night with a romantic walk down the beach under the moonlight, it was great! Saturday the weather was kind of yucky so we headed to old town instead of to the beach we spent the day wandering through shops. After a while we headed back to the hotel for a much needed nap (I love naps!). That night we went to the IMAX to see Night at the Museum 2. We finished that night with dinner at this awesome restaurant that is on the water. Sunday we got up early went to the beach for a little while then cleaned up checked out and headed to the outlet mall. I found some great tops and dresses at the Gap. We finally headed home and just rested.

I had an AMAZING weekend! I was completely rested up for this week. I love how romantic William is! He is truly a wonderful hubby, I could not ask for a better partner in life. And if you read this William, thank you for a great weekend! I Love You SO Much!

I figured I would post some pics from this weekend below...
The welcome sign to our hotel which may I say was very cozy and private.
Of course we can't go on a trip without bringing Willie a Souvenir! Isn't this the cutest turtle you have ever seen!

The beach, it was kind of hard to walk on because it was covered in shells, but it was still so pretty.


My big strong man!



Us at dinner. The waitor took this picture. We were surprised it turned out becasue at first he had the camera upside down and facing him. It would have been hilarious if he would have taken a picture of himself.
WARNING!!!!!!
Below is a picture of a VERY pale pregnant woman!
(I can't belive I am posting this picture on the internet)

I am trying to embrace my body hence the 2 piece.
