scenes from a sweet weekend

JB came home!!! That is the number one thing that made my weekend so sweet.  I basically attacked him with kisses at the airport.  There are so many obvious reasons as to why I am happy to have my husband home but a rather odd one I’m really excited about  –  not thinking I am going to be murdered come nightfall.      Nighttime is ten jillion times creepier when you’re all alone.  I lived alone until we married so I’m not sure why I have turned into such a scaredy cat.  I had a solicitor a few days ago come to the front door.  You see, you cannot look out a glass front door to see who it is.  They see you too.  The ladies voice/shadow of a person said “I am not going to kill you.  open up.”  Call me slow, but I did as I was told.  She then proceeded to rap to me about why I should buy citrus cleaner.  Then she asked if I was the queen of dis castle.  My eyes got big as I thought how amazing/hilarious every word dripping from her lips were.  I wanted to keep her in my pocket or video tape her so I could never forget.  either. or.  Then she cleaned random things for as long as I could drag it out because I was SO amused / she’s cleaning my house-i am not that dumb.  I asked her how much her citrus cleaner was – she said $5,000. ???  I told her I didn’t have my wallet – left it in my other car at my parents house.  it was true.  I also word vomited that my husband is out of town … i am seriously naive at times.  or just sloooowwww as mollasses.  My mom laughed/scolded me.  Telling me she was “casing the place” …  oh suuure mom, sure.  seemed silly, until the night crept in and then it made so much sense. ha.  As if I wasn’t already afraid of sleeping alone – now I really was.  After that incident,  I found myself right back in my childhood bedroom for a few nights.  So, obviously I’m happy he’s home.  I no longer have to (irrationally) fear for my life and I get my snuggle bunny back.  win-win
Here are other reasons my weekend was suhhhh-weeeet.

    omg I'm dying laughing at this because Andrew was out of town this weekend and I was literally up until 3 am last night totally scared. I also slept alone until we were married but now I am a total scaredy cat too!! Why is that?! So glad we will both sleep safely tonight! 😛

    aww, dear, I'm glad you have the husband home with you now. In pressure times, I'm the same way–I blurt out things that I certainly shouldn't. Oy.
    Love your fun outfit in that pic!

    beautiful photos!! That bike is just adorable, and you've got the cutest outfit there! What a lovely weekend, indeed!

    That lady sounds so creepy..yikes. I'd be scared after that experience too!

    My weekend was wonderful because I got a bunch of work done, danced for 5 hours (ballet rehearsals) and got to do some baking, fun! 🙂

    LOVE all of these photos!! And especially LOVE your outfit. amazing.

    When I first moved to England with the husband I was terrified of being home alone at night in a foreign land…he went out one night with a friend a week or so after we had been here and I cried.

    I am pathetic.

    My weekend was great because I got to visit with a friend who had moved to CA and had flown in for a week to visit!!!

    I completely understand about being home alone at night. It really is about a million times worse once the sun goes down!!

    I spent my weekend with my love, too! How sweet it was! I am scared too when I sleep alone in an empty house – it doesn't happen often – which is why it freaks me out! I always psych myself out, too, thinking of scary movies or something. I also freak myself out when I think about studying abroad (I refuse to watch the movie Taken).

    LOVE LOVE your outfit! you are so cute! i am also loving these photos! esp that bike one.. you'll have to put it on your esty shop. (btw im SO SO psyched about getting my print soon, i'll have to find somewhere special to put it). anyhoo i totally know what you mean about sleeping alone, when H is is on call and has to sleep at the hospital it takes me foreeever to fall asleep and i freak out at any creak or weird noise. convinced someone is going to break in. or something else random. ahhh well. glad you had a lovely weekend!!

    o and my weekend was sweet because i got a break from football! the past few weekends we've been watching it non-stop 🙂 xoxo jcd

    Such a funny story but I can really relate. I used to have no problem being home alone until late last summer. One night I had the house to myself as my family was down at our shorehouse and my sister was working the night shift. I came home when it was dark out and let me down out to take him to the bathroom, etc. All of a sudden my dog when running to the back door and starting barking. I freaked out soooo bad! I ran upstairs with my little puppy, grabbed a baseball bat from my brothers room, locked myself in my room and frantically called my brother begging him to come home from soccer camp and sleep at the house tonight.

    One of the worst experiences of my life, needless to say, I don't like the house to myself anymore!

    oh my, I know what you mean about being home alone. this week will be the first night I have to spend alone since we moved to our house when the hubs is on call. i'm already nervous! love the bike photo! looks like a picture perfect weekend…pun intended 🙂 so glad you are reunited with your love!

    poor thing! i'm the same way though- i always wonder if the "ups guy" is really delivering packages or just dressed up in cognito to do a break in. So glad your JB is home! looks like you had a wonderful weekend together! 🙂

    I'm your newest follower!! I'm so glad that your hubby is home safe and sound! You are SO adorable and that picture of you made me smile! You look so happy!!

    I am totally scared to be at home alone at night. My favorite thing to do is watch Lifetime…which is obviously the worst thing to EVER watch if you are going to be home alone! My hubby is a fireman, so he is gone lots of nights. I lock ALL the doors (even the bedroom door) and keep a knife by the bed. Yes, I am a freak. Haha!

    OMG – Love your story!!! I admit – I probably would have done the same thing. J tells me all the time "loose lips sink the ship". Our front door [now] is half glass too so I think it's a little scary at night as well. I'm bugging J to get us an alarm system asap.
    Your weekend looked positively lovely and I so wish I could rock shorts the way you do!
