While dad's away....

 Nick was in Atlanta alllll week.  I am definitely not a fan of him traveling that long but I'm just thankful that we don't have to do it all the time.  Takes a special wife to have a traveling husband.....I, however, am not that wife! :)
It's nice to have a little reinforcement, but luckily, I have some of the best friends that break up the week for me.
Nick left Sunday afternoon and he was sad because he didn't get to say bye to Finley because she was still sleeping.  So, I sent him this picture when she got up, of course it was about 2 seconds after he drove away.
 Monday, Finley was having a snack after she woke up from her nap and I thought we'd send dad a picture of us.  She kept putting her cashew up to the screen to "show" dad what she was eating. :)
 Tuesday, Cole had his end of the year music program at school.  It was tricky because his program was at 10:00am and that is right in the middle of my work-day.  Normally, Nick and Gigi would go to his programs and take lots of pictures for me but both Nick and Gigi were out of town this week AND I am out of my personal days so I was in a bit of a pickle.  Luckily, our good friend Ellery offered to watch my 2nd period class for me so I could go.  Cole would have been devastated if nobody was there to watch him so I was even willing to just get docked pay in order to go.  Ellery is such a great friend!!
Cole did so good at his program, he always does every single hand motion and sings the entire song...Broadway, he we come!! :)
 Cole with his whole class....

 Later that afternoon, I picked up the boys from school and we headed to Market Street to pick up a few things for dinner that night. 
 Like I said earlier, I am blessed with the best of friends.  Some of us Life Group girls all had traveling husbands this week so Megan offered up her home Tuesday evening.  She made a big pot of spaghetti and the kids just played their hearts out.  It was so nice to have some girl time and chat, while the kids played.

Then, Wednesday evening, Katie and James came over and had dinner with us.  It was a little chaotic because we had just found out that Cole had his first Tball practice that night so I was a little nuts trying to get everything situated for that.  But, it was nice to have an adult conversation again over dinner.  I'd been having 2 and 4 year old conversations all week so it was nice for some normal convos again.

Tball......oh, it was hilarious.  God bless our coach!  ha!
Cole is actually pretty good at the hitting but the catching and being in the outfield, that's going to take some work.  They were all so adorable though and I can't wait to see how the season goes.

 And yesterday, I was super excited because I got this new cookbook that I ordered from Amazon.  It's a pretty good read and has some good recipes in there so I'm excited to try some out. 
 I am still "clean eating" during the week and as much as I can, but I have also given myself (mostly during weekends) the ok to eat other things.  It was impossible to eat out the first 1.5 months of my clean eating and after adding things to my diet and realizing I still felt great I decided it's probably ok for me to eat other things once in awhile.  The second I start feeling bad again, I will get back on the diet 100%.  I really think my body just needed a good cleanse so I feel like a good 80-20 ratio is good.  It's soooo hard to follow that kind of eating 100% of the time, so if I can do it 80%, I will be good with that.
Oh, and what yesterday even better.....Nick came home last night, yay!!!!  And yay for him not having to travel for a long time now...yay!!!!
