Good morning everyone 🙂
First things first, on the behalf of Andrew- he wanted to thank each and every one of you for wishing him a Happy Birthday in my last blog post. So much love and it was all very much appreciated. I truly feel like you guys are all my extended family ❤
So this weekend, eh…
Well, as most of you could’ve assumed, today would’ve been my Miami recap…so why is it not?
Because our flight was CANCELED *insert ALL the sad faces here*
So if you’re not caught up in the news over here in the US, there was a shooting at the Fort Lauderdale airport, which also happened to be the airport that Andrew and I were suppose fly into.
In the grand scheme of things, we’re very very thankful that we were not there at the time that this horrific event occurred. It’s kind of crazy to think that on multiple occasions prior to our fly date Andrew and I were trying to see if we could change our flights to an earlier one, well thank GOD we didn’t. Bless the hearts of those who passed, were hurt, and the family and friends of those people.
We did inevitably change our flight to two weekends from now and we were able to switch our hotel dates around to accommodate our new travel days. So in the midst of everything nothing was immutable and everything was done pretty smoothly. AND to justify a little bit more, I’m pretty sure it was cold and rainy there this past weekend. So we have a second chance!
I swear occurrences such as this helps me affirm that ‘everything happens for a reason‘ It just wasn’t the right time for us to be down there and we have something to look forward to in the upcoming weeks now 🙂
So as if it wasn’t bad enough that we weren’t able to fly out, well, we got snowed in too!
Andrew and I were suppose to go up to visit his grandmother for her birthday but because of the snow we decided driving in it was a no-go.
Instead, we made a trip to the grocery store and gathered materials to make pulled pork in the slow cooker ft homemade coleslaw and baked beans
All while I was battling this awful zit (ughhh!!) with some good ol’ home remedies. Seriously SO thankful for home remedies, it cured my skin!
zit cream for the win aka tooth paste!!!
Some snapchat fun
my favorite human ❤ #MCM
That night, we watched some basketball and I read some blogs
And popcorn! The movie theater butter kind, of course!
It finally had stopped snowing so we were anxious to go out and adventure.
We decided to visit Andrew’s grandmother since we couldn’t Saturday. We also made some pit stops to the mall and his parents house..
I love their house so much, it screams home and is always so warm and comforting. Not to mention its absolutely beautiful inside! #goals
And the rest of the night was spent like so…plus football, a lot of football.
ONE LAST THING
I want to share my planner that I ordered right off of Amazon that I’m obsessed with…
Meet my Bloom Planner
Originally, I wanted to buy myself an Erin Condren planner but guys, it’s like $50+ to customize it and such. They’re beautiful and I WILL one year get myself one buttt being on a budget Amazon works wonders.
At the beginning of each month they have these two pages so you can literally put in your goals and things you want to accomplish for the month. Which I thought to be handy for all you new year(s) goal/resolution setters.
And the inside is like so…
However, I took this picture prior to Miami so right now this week isn’t looking so neat and organized anymore lol
But nevertheless, I’m in love with it!
How was everyone else’s weekend? Did you guys get any snow wherever you are?
