Mid-Week Shakedown and our Sarasota Trip

Wednesday is my least favorite day of the week.  Always has been.  Probably always will be.  I don’t even really know why, other than that I am always so tired on Wednesdays and I know I still have another two full days until the weekend is here.  Once I get over the hump, I’m fine, but man, sometimes getting over it feels like I’m sprinting up a mountain.  It’s just a challenge.  It doesn’t help that I’m currently still trying to get adjusted to being back to reality.  I just can’t get my mind right and I’m pretty much convinced that I should still be on vacation.  Whaa whaa whaa, I know.  Get it together, Leanne.

We had such a great time in Sarasota last week.  Saturday to Saturday is the way to do it in my opinion…I truly felt like I took a vacation and got away from work and responsibilities.  Not to mention how nice it is to have some extra sets of hands to help with Asher Wade.  My parents are so good to babysit and entertain him so Matt and I can sneak away to exercise, grab dinner or meet up with friends, and we definitely did all of the above.  Just being able to take a spontaneous date night (and not pay for a sitter…can I get an AMEN to that!) is such a treat for us.  We got lots of family time as well, visiting the beach, pool, splash pad, Mote Marine, Big Cat Habitat and our favorite restaurants and ice cream shops (duh).  We even had some family pictures done! Oh, and I got to attend a surprise retirement party for my mom!  We were B.U.S.Y.  It was awesome though, and we were so blessed to be able to stay down there for a week.  I love Chattanooga, but man, Sarasota will always have a special place in my heart…

Like I mentioned above, we also had some family pictures done by the very talented Alisa Forbis of Alisa Sue Photography.  I actually went to high school with Alisa and she is such a warm and sweet person.  This is the second time she has done our photos, and she is incredibly talented and has such an eye for photography.  I cannot wait to receive all of the pictures, but here are a couple she posted right after the shoot:-)
