I can’t believe we’re already on our third round of holidays :(
I don’t know if you are aware, but the Wednesday before Thanksgiving is also known as “Blackout Wednesday”. Kind of a funny title, but also kind of appropriate for some people. Basically, everyone gets together at bars and just drinks until they blackout…..Dominic and I went last year, and we had a blast. No, we did not blackout, but we did have a great time with people who we do and don’t see on a normal basis. This year was the same. It’s just so nice to be around all of your friends, have a few drinks, and just laugh so hard you cry. I love it! I love even more watching Dominic sit back and relax. He’s always working and on the go, so to see him so much less tense makes me a very happy wife.
Dominic’s parents watched Olivia while we were out being teenagers again. I really wanted to pick her up when we got home, but it was 2am and that would’ve just been selfish. Dominic and I woke up Thanksgiving morning at 8:30am. I said, “I can’t believe we’re childless and we’re still up early.” To which he replied, “I can’t believe we’re not getting up and ready so we can go get our baby.”
We took showers, got dressed, picked up some coffee and went to our baby.
This is what we were welcomed with:
