My First Week as a SAHM

I loved it. I love it so much. I love it more than I thought I would. I know I'm only one week in, and there will be times where I want to tear my hair out and just take a vacation from home. But right now, I feel so happy.

The first few days Charlotte woke up super early (for her) and even though I didn't love that, I did love snuggling in my bed while she watched Disney Jr.
I didn't get as much done as I thought I would in the first week, but I tackled at least one small project every day. But even better than that, I spent quality time with the sweetest little girl.

I filled up the splash and scoop bay and after we started playing, I realized my husband had fertilized the lawn the day before. I asked him if he thought it was okay, or if we should wait. He recommended waiting...but it was too late.
The feet! They burn! 
Mommy makes me play too much.

We went to lunch with a friend of mine and a former coworker so I still get all the juicy work gossip, which usually goes something like this "And then this old guy? He needed a cane, but he got one in 2011 and I forgot to get him to sign ABN! Whaaat?!"

Today we even made it to the zoo with another friend and her little girl and enjoyed the most perfect weather that May has to offer. Charlotte slept until 8:40 after I put some blackout fabric over her windows. I knew it'd be the perfect day to have a morning activity with just one nap in the afternoon, but the little stinker fell asleep in the car 3 minutes after we left the zoo! But then a couple hours later she took a killer nap.

zonked. she had drool EVERYWHERE.
Why does Darby have buttons??

This weekend my dear husband celebrates his 30th birthday, and we are having a bash at our place, and since my initial plans to throw him a themed party were thrown out the window (by him!), tomorrow I will finish up the last minute details and get the house ready to have everyone over. Last year I blogged about how I didn't know what to get him for his birthday, and I could basically say the same thing this year, but we agreed that since we're finishing the basement and we just got a sweet TV, that can be his happy birthday.

OH, except I found this gem...that he WILL be opening as his gift at his party.
This is a framed 2'x3' poster that I found at my  neighbor's garage sale. Why would anyone ever sell this?
Happy Birthday, Marcus!!

It won't be a complete surprise, since I showed him this picture before I bought it, but I'm hoping he forgot about it.

All in all, it was the perfect week!
