Just in case anyone was wondering who Isaac resembles, check these photos out:

(Here's a hint: That's not Jordan in the Easter dress & bonnet.) #mylittledopplegänger

It was a whirlwind kinda weekend. But this is the take home: I went out of town overnight without Isaac for the first time. Cue the gasps and tears. Driving away from the house on Friday morning, I kind of felt like vomiting, but I eventually got to the point where I could function without him and even had fun! Even though the weekend was all about saying goodbye to one of my dearest friends before she moves across the country, we had a really good time together. Many apologies to my friends up in the metroplex who I didn't get a chance to see. It was a superquicktrip, but it was just what this momma needed to recharge (woohoooooo for sleeping in!), reconnect (sweet time with friends), and add some new pretties to my closet. #southlakeftw

Being away from my child for a weekend did nothing for my "mom brain." In fact, being consistently preoccupied thinking about how he's doing and what he's up to may have made me even more scatterbrained than usual. Need proof? I left all of my toiletries in the shower of the hotel that I stayed in. Shampoo. Conditioner. Face wash. Clairisonic. There was much weeping and gnashing of teeth when I unpacked my overnight bag this morning and realized that ALL of my shower stuff was still residing in the shower at the Hampton Inn. What's even better? I finally got around to buying a 2-pack  of brushes for my clarisonic this weekend. That's a big fat smack right in the middle of my forehead. Luckily, I got friends in low places who dropped by the Hampton Inn and grabbed my Clarisonic. Depending on the speediness of the US Postal Service, I should have polished skin again soon. #suchadummy

Anyone who knows me knows i've been floundering around trying different stylists basically since we've moved to south texas. For two years, I drove back to north Texas and had my hair done in Mansfield. Unfortunately, aintnobodygottimeforthat anymore. I definitely didn't have time to go this weekend, but fingers are crossed that stylist attempt #5 is a success. Because when you're rocking the ombre look, but it's unintentional.... it's time to get your hair done. #rootsyall.

Love that picture of you!!!! So cute. And what TRAGEDY that you left the Clarisonic!! I'm glad your friend was able to get it. A few years ago Matt left some...items...of ours in a hotel room. But we were too embarrassed to call and ask for them back. And now that's the end of that story. ;) HAHAHAHA. I can't believe I'm posting this.

Glad you got a weekend away. It's good for us although hard! I cringed about your Clarisonic way more than I should have over a beauty implement. And then I breathed a sigh of relief over you getting it back. Whew!

My mom-brain is so bad that, unprompted, Jack now asks when we get in the car, "You got your phone, Mommy? You got your sunglasses too?"
