I saw so many gorgeous babes this past weekend, and the only thing I could think the whole time was how much I want MY baby! Yes, I know he will be here before I know it, but it's like I MISS him!
Not that I didn't love spending the weekend with some of my very favorite people.
Mom and I left Friday afternoon to head down to Oregon for some visits. Our first stop was to see my sister, Nichole, and her family in Forest Grove. Excuse the poor photo quality, but this is all that I got...
We got in some quality time and a slumber party with my adorable nieces before heading south in the morning to Umpqua for a visit with Crys and Baby Olive. What a doll! I had so much fun just playing with this smiling, happy, adorable little human being. Love.
And it was so fantastic to finally get some quality time with Crys and to see where she's been living all this time. This is small town life, kiddos. From the information I can find, the population of Umpqua is about 600. There isn't even a single stop light!
Crys, Hans and Olive live in an adorable 100-year-old farm house surrounded by rolling green hills filled with sheep. I seriously felt like I was in Ireland or something. It was so peaceful and wonderful to spend some time outside the city with them.
We had so much fun just playing with Olive, hanging around the house, chit chatting, and even having lunch at a vegetarian restaurant owned and operated by hippies from a local commune! I'm telling you guys, this is legit backwoods country. Crys and Hans got married down here a couple years ago, and I can totally see why they've chosen to make it their permanent home. Growing up, I always used to say that I wanted to live in the city or the country, but never anything in between. Places like this remember why I thought the simple, country life would be so refreshing for the soul. Ironically, here I am in Suburbia, but that's a story for another day...
I hope that y'all had a wonderful long weekend!
What were you up to?
I can't help but reflect on last year's epic fail over the President's Day holiday. Can you believe it's been a year already? Or that that was the last time I was on my snowboard? This makes me incredibly sad...
Ah well, Stew is up at Crystal today enjoying the powder for the both of us.
Have a great (short!) week, guys and dolls!
