This weekend was great & just what we needed! On Friday, we had a work party & it was really fun! They had really good appetizers & desserts so I could be found with a plate of food at all times. Haha, but really everything was so good! They had bacon wrapped dates, bruschetta, these zucchini things stuffed with vegetables, & pork wontons. The best dessert was these little mini chocolate mousses in chocolate shells, sooo good!!! It was fun to visit with people too & meet some people that Nate works with.
Saturday we went to a church Christmas breakfast. Then I went to get a much needed haircut. I get my haircut at a spa located at a resort. I started getting my haircut there last year & love it because I can use the spa services there after (sauna, steamroom, hot tub, etc). There was a Christmas parade going on at the resort, so I could not find anywhere to park since the roads were blocked off. I called the spa & told them I was near a church & asked if it was close enough to park there. They said it was right new to the resort so I just parked there. After parking, I kept walking & walking but still did not see the start of the resort. Finally, after half a mile, I was finally there!!! I saw a different church right next to the resort that they had thought I parked at, haha! At least I got there though!! The haircut was so nice, I love it there because when they wash your hair, they give you a really good scalp massage & it is so relaxing. The lady that does my hair does a great job cutting it & always styles it so cute after. After the haircut I got a magazine & relaxed out by the hot tub, switching between sitting in the hot tub & reading a magazine by the fire. It was so nice! When I got home, Nate & I just kind of relaxed & made dinner together.
Sunday we went to church & then had family dinner at my sister's. Sunday dinner is the best, always an amazing meal & so fun to visit with family.
Monday was busy & stressful at work, but it felt good to get a lot done. This week, we have a few events planned & next week will go by so quickly since we have Friday off. Then I am sooo excited to have 2 weeks off for Christmas break!!!
Some other good news, my brother-in-law & his fiance were planning on getting married in Fiji this summer. At firts it sounded so awesome because they said flights were only $600 round trip. Then we started looking at flights & they were a lot more expensive. Then the dates were changed & prices were more than double that cost. We also are hoping we will be pregnant & not sure if flying that far would be ok depending on the timing. If we are not pregnant, we will probably be saving for invitro, so using such a big chunk of money at that time would mean we would need to save a lot longer. We didn't want to buy flights until we have tried a few more treatments & the prices were just going up & up so who knows how much they would be in a few months! It also conflicted with a work trip that we were supposed to go on. Overall, we were both just feeling soooo stressed about it. The money, the timing, & everything! It is hard with weddings because it is something that you really can't miss,but also I feel like you can't just spend unlimited money on something! Anyways, we got news that the wedding is changed to stateside, so we will be able to easily get there & not have to stress!!!! I am so glad!!!
