E and I continue to be insane people masquerading as calm, cool, collected, no-big-deal-we-got-this type ladies. After our awesome partay on Friday, we headed to Connecticut to our engagement party. Lucky for us, we learned a thing or two on the last road trip and I think this one went much better. It helped that we were going about half as far. Some highlights:
The engagement party was really lovely – and the first (and only other than the wedding) time all sides of our families were together. It was an odd clash of worlds, but in a great way. Who wouldn’t want to see everyone they love in one place, right?! And Monica was a hit (duh).
E and I cherish the time we get with our families, since they are out of state. While we always wish there was more time to go around (and I’m sure now everyone wishes there was more Monica to go around!), it was a lovely 24 hour trip and we made it back in one (well, three) piece(s).
Just to keep things spicy, I’m going to start my new job tomorrow. Good vibes appreciated.
Sneak peek: Monica has her one-year well visit this week (still can’t believe she’s one, even though she’s only been around for 5 and a half weeks), her first EI visit, and we have a visit from both SWs (hers and ours). Hopefully updates to come. We’ll just keep loving on her and watching her grow for now! Not too bad a deal.
