To be real honest, I'm missing my husband, y'all.

Don't get me wrong, I am L-O-V-I-N-G spending the days with my nephew. LOVING IT. I just wish Wade were here to enjoy it with me.

He came down this past weekend and we celebrated an early valentine's day with a nice hotel, a morning walk at Boneyard Beach, lunch at the Cheesecake factory, and some shopping. Then we finished out the night with some good nephew time and dinner with the fam.

I really mean this when I say, I am so so blessed by my husband. He's my best friend. I could (and want to) spend every single moment with him. It still wouldn't be enough. It's never enough.

On the morning that he had to fly back to Alabama, I told him that it would have been easier if he hadn't come. Obviously, I'm glad he did, but now I have to go through withdrawals all over again! Good news is that he'll be back in just 10 short days.

Sad news is that I have less than two weeks left with lil Lanny!

I find myself wondering what in the world I'll do with myself when I get back home.  I'm going back to a new house, in a new city, and I'll have a completely new schedule. One that I don't know anything about at this point! One thing I know is that I won't be feeding, burping, changing, and rocking my nephew every 3 hours.  It's going to be so strange!

I'll probably find myself wandering around Target because the excitement of actually having one within an hour's drive (and to have it be only 5 minutes away) hasn't worn off yet. Probably never will.

Obviously, my mind is thinking about three things: my husband, my nephew, and target. ;)

Actually, that's not true. I'm also thinking a lot about my big sister's baby shower which is in a WEEK AND A HALF! Lots of prep work to be done. I spent the better part of my day writing lists upon lists. Throwing showers has become one of my favorite things since designing my other sister's baby shower and this sister's wedding shower all in the last year! I've even been told that I should go into business. To which I replied: I would if I thought I could keep any employees! I can be a bit of a bossy-pants. Good thing my sisters have to love me. They have no choice.

There's my brain, just for you.
You should know there are also lingering thoughts on The Bachelor in there somewhere, which is pretty embarrassing, and that I made this soup for dinner (third time repeating it) and it's super delish. You should try it. It's also good the next day which is always a plus. And it's from a crock pot -- triple plus.
