It’s been 10 days

Hey friends!

It’s been 10 days since I have been here. Sorry about that but life got in the way. Something about having a 9 month old makes me lose my mind and forget what day it is let alone how long it has been since I have been here in these parts.

So, whats going on? Well, #babybigtruck is FINALLY feeling better and as of Monday she has a clean bill of health. Thank God! Not gonna lie January and the first 10 days of this month were rough!

#babybigtruck and I got to visit with Siobhan and Baby Luna on Monday and Sio did our 9 month/Valentine’s Day photos. I can not wait to get the final copies back! I have the rough shots and LOVE them!

It’s the time of the year when I have to start to figure out when I am going to take my vacation time. I am entitled to 6 weeks vacation and I have my weeks nailed down and submitted them today so now I wait to hear if they are all approved. I know I will have no problem getting 4 of the 6 weeks approved. The two weeks I am not 100% sure of are Thanksgiving week and Christmas week. I should know in few weeks where that stands.

My first week off is in March and #babybigtruck and I will be heading to FL to visit grandma and grandpa for a few days. We are gonna check out their new house and just chill out with them. Unfortunately Mr. Big Truck will not be able to join us. I will be flying with #babybigtruck ALONE for the first time. Thankfully I have flown with her a few times already and know that she is a good traveler. I just do not know if I will wear her this time or if I will just put her in the stroller this time. Girlfriend loves her stroller so I think it may be the best bet this time around especially since I will be going solo and have to wrangle her and our stuff. Usually when we travel together I wear the baby and Mr. Big Truck is in charge of the stroller and our carry ons. He is such a great travel partner! I plan to pack us up in 1 suitcase and I only plan to take the diaper bag as my carry on. FL is a short trip I won’t need much other than stuff to keep #babybigtruck occupied on the plane.

In August Mr. Big Truck and I will both be off. We are currently in talks of what kind of family vacation we are going to do. We are kicking around the idea of a all-inclusive trip. We are also thinking maybe going back to Cabo. Decisions decisions!

One week I will be going away with #babybigtruck and my momma. We are going to go to AZ to visit her mom. I have never met her nor has #babybigtruck and I know it would mean a lot to my mom for us to go so we have that to look forward to. Every year my mom and I vacation somewhere together and it is going to be so much more fun now that I get to bring my daughter on these trips. I am really looking forward to making these memories with my mom and #babybigtruck.

The other 3 weeks I will all be enjoyed as staycations at home. I have come to enjoy the staycation I can not lie!

So yeah that’s about what’s going on in our life right now. Things are calm other than the day to day things and I am not complaining about that at all!

  Hugs, Nikki

      Ha! You can get yourself a ticket and join us! I do not think anything/anyone more will fit in the suitcase with all the stuff I have to pack.
