Welp, we survived an 11 hour drive back home yesterday :/...we won't be doing that again any time soon, that's all I'm sayin'.
We did had a great time in the mountains though! It wasn't cold like we thought it might be but the weather was gorgeous nontheless. So I was happy, no hot weather :). Austin and I both agreed that we got Gatlinburg out of our systems for quite some time. Neither of us remember it being so touristy and tacky. Maybe that's because we were both young and tons of tee shirt shops and mini golf places were intriging at that time? lol. We did do Ripley's. I know know, that is pretty tacky, AND I've gone through that one before, but what can I say, I still find it fun! ;) It was nice to get away from everyday life and work and just enjoy sleeping in and doing whatever we wanted, just us two. This was our last trip as a family of TWO...next time we'll have Peyton :).
All in all, great little getaway. I would definately suggest doing a "babymoon", you need to spend one last "hoorah" as just husband and wife because before too long, it won't be about just the two of you anymore!
In other news, my doctor called me on our last day away to inform me that I did NOT pass my one hour glucose test and that, yes, I now have to take the THREE hour test. Not.happy. I was so upset! I HATE needles (as I have made sure to inform you, lol) and this time I get to be stabbed five times, count 'em, FIVE times in three hours. NOT.HAPPY. So, I pouted about it for the rest of that afternoon, and maybe a little the next morning, lol, and then decided that whatever the outcome, I'll be fine. God is in control and there's nothing else I can do but trust in Him. I would covet your prayers that this next go around I pass with flying colors, as I do not want to have to worry with all the complications and details that go along with having gestational diabetes. And also that the whole gettingmyblooddrawnthing goes as pleasantly as possible. I don't have the appt scheduled yet but praying ahead of time is always good :)
Our first shower is this Saturday, in Jacksonville. Austin's side of the family is throwing it for us and I'm really excited! We have something scheduled every weekend this month! If that's not going to make time fly by even faster, I don't know what is! I go back to work tomorrow, and it's such a lovely thought to know that I only have TWO days of work this week and then I'm off again for the weekend...ahhhh vacations.
Hope everyone enjoyed their Veteran's Day off! (if you had the day off)
