Happy Monday! I had a quick, up-and-back weekend in my hometown, and while I'm sleepy this morning, it was a great weekend. 

Brandon brought home Tex-Mex from one of our favorite restaurants, and we made a big decision that I can't wait to share with y'all in the coming months. :) I took Walker to the grocery store with me, did a ton of laundry, cleaned up around the house and got things packed up to head to my hometown. 

I left Brandon and Walker home alone overnight together for the first time since he was born and made the four-hour trip south to my hometown. I was a hostess at my best friend's baby shower, so I decided to make the up-and-back trip in 24 hours. 

It was so weird being baby- and husband-free, but I made the best of it! ;) 

I got home and my sister and I had lunch together and then took naps on my parents couches. 

..and then my sister freaked me out with her giant unicorn head. Ha! 

My mom and I got things together for the shower; my dad took me on a tour of their almost-done new house; and we ate supper on the couches while watching "Property Brothers" and all went to bed super early. 

We went to church, and then it was Lindsey's baby shower! Lindsey has been my best friend since before I can remember {no, but seriously} and I cannot wait to meet her sweet baby Austin in February! I love that our boys are a little over one year apart and I pray they will be great friends like we are! 

My mom did all the decorating, and I just love the way it turned out. 

I left the shower a little early since I had to drive four hours back home, and it was a yucky, rainy drive back. But I'll tell you what, seeing my boys when I walked in the door was the best feeling ever! Walker kept giving me kisses and wouldn't let me put him down. I love that sweet boy so much! 

I bathed him and laid him down for bed, then Brandon and I had dinner together and caught up on some DVR and the Golden Globes.

I hope y'all have a wonderful week! 

Linking up with Biana and Meghan
