Sooo....all that's to say is that he works a lot so I survive it by taking trips to visit family. Hadley and I stay with my dad and are able to visit with my aunts, uncles, cousins and my best friend, and it's really the best time. I'll take Hadley to the mall to play at the play area, we'll go to some really amazing indoor playgrounds, go to parks and pools when it's nice, and just visit with my favorite folks.
The one downside for me is that it's a money trap! When you live in a small town whose dining options are limited to McDonalds & Dairy Queen, bar food and a Tex Mex restaurant, it's amazing to get around sushi, Thai food, real Mexican...shoot, even Chilis is exciting. And there's always the shopping - or really just Target :)
Anyway, I'm at home for a couple weeks and it's really great. There's something about your own family that is so comforting. I love my circle of friends and being near Brad's parents but being in your parent's home, in the town you grew up in, is something really special.
We don't have much planned on this visit except that I'm going to see Eric Church in concert next week. That was a last-minute decision my cousin and I made and I gotta be honest, I'm so, so, SO excited. He's one of my favorite musicians and I've heard that his Outsiders Tour is an amazing live show. I'm really disappointed that I won't get to see him with Brad, but it'll be a fun time with my cousin.
