We Are Family!

Two weekends ago my mom came to visit me in St. Louis!! I seriously was SO excited to see her. Even better, my Aunt Fish (Janet) came to visit as well. And since my Aunt Ali and her family already live in St. Louis it just turned into a mini-family reunion. It was wonderful.

Since being here in St. Louis, I have had A LOT of alone time. I grew up with 6 brothers and sisters, then I went college and lived with 5 other girls. I have never really had the chance to be alone before I got married. Because of this, I thought it would be awesome to finally get some time to myself this summer. I was totally wrong! I am so BORED when Peter is at work. I never realized how important girl-time is and how empty I feel without it. I actually miss having roommates and I actually miss the craziness of a big family (If my high school self could hear me saying this...she would be shocked and appalled). That being said, you can imagine how exciting and much-needed this mini-family reunion was for me.

The weekend was spent doing fun things in St. Louis, helping my Aunt Ali move (her new house is gorgeous), playing with 4 awesome cousins, boardgames, squirting water at each other, and just catching up. It really was such a great break from the monotonous days I have when Peter has to work all day. I loved it!
We went out to eat at Chilis (Yum)
