(“Dinosaur Happy, Dinosaur Sad” is from one of Quinn’s favorite books right now!)
I can’t believe I’m on a plane right now to Mexico… for an amazing, all-inclusive Cancun vacation… with my girlfriends… but without my family… on Mother’s Day weekend. Ooooh, I am feeling so many emotions right now. Mother’s guilt for sure.
Ok, let’s rewind to this morning because my day was pretty stellar…
Chocolate frosted donut with breakfast? Yes, please.
Quinn’s 11 month photo shoot (a day early). He ripped the sticker within seconds of me putting it on him. Haha! These monthly photos get harder and harder to take!
I taught my first KFIT class and it wasn’t a train wreck! Kidding, kidding! Thanks to an amazing class of women, who made me feel as comfortable as possible, I made it through with flying colors!
And thanks to Kerrie for programming an “easy” workout for me to coach. However, it was not at all easy for the ladies in class. Holy Wallballs!
Quinn’s (second) Outfit of the Day! Adorable. Pug onesies are the cutest.
And then my day got sad”¦
When Mal and Quinn dropped me off at the T (to take to the airport), I had the biggest pit in my stomach. Obviously, I am pumped about vacationing in Mexico with my friends, but I felt so upset/guilty/empty at the same time. I mostly kept it together when I said goodbye to Mal, but as soon as I hugged Quinn, the waterworks started. I know. I’m such a baby, but it was so hard leaving my little guy. Of course, I know he’ll be in good hands this weekend with his dad, but, man, I am going to miss him. Plus, the fact that I’m not home for my first Mother’s Day is making it so much harder.
And, on the way to the airport, I found a pair of his tiny socks tucked away in my bag. *sigh* Dinosaur sad.
I made it to the airport without any issues and had plenty of time to grab dinner: Chicken Tikka Masala Bowl from UFood Grill. It was phenomenal, especially for airport food. I could seriously eat this everyday. Dinosaur happy!
And dark chocolate for dessert”¦ because, well, vacation.
I’m sure once I get to Mexico and have a margarita in hand I will feel better about everything, right?
See ya in Mexico!
