Last Day...

Started the trip wearing these:

Then, after four days of eating out EVERY meal, my jeans feel more like tight leggings ( I kid you not.) I'm ending the trip wearing this mu mu like dress.
Good Grief.

Here's some more pictures...

It's our 10 year anniversary today. Praise God that 10 years and 3 boys has not changed our dorkiness! Love him.

Ben and I and our adorable niece Maddy (lives in same city as conference.) She gets to come stay with us for several days in July while her parents take their church's teenagers to camp...we'll get to "play house" with a girl!

Another one, because seriously, how cute is she?!?

Me and my sister Lindsey (Maddy's mommy) she's 4 1/2 years younger than me (she's 26, I'll save ya the math :)

We so enjoyed our vacation, and are definitely ready to head home and see the boys and charge on with everyday life!


  1. That dress is so cute! So glad you had a good time together. Happy Anniversary!

    12 years and 3 kids hasn't changed our dorkiness either. :)

  2. Happy Anniversary!!! 10 years is FANTASTIC!!! You'll have to let me know when Maddie is over. I need a baby girl fix!

  3. whew! she's cute!! so are you and lindsey!!!

  4. Happy Anniversary!! Glad you had a fun getaway!

  5. I happen to love the mu-mu.

    Happy Anniversary!!!

  6. Happy Anniversary! You look refreshed and relaxed!

  7. Love the pictures! Happy anniversary! I'm so glad you were able to have this time away. I know how valuable that can be.

  8. You and Ben look blissfully happy and refreshed! So glad you had a great time away. Love that picture of you and your sister...adorable! = )

  9. I am now singing the tune from that old TV show that I (hope I) saw in reruns: Welcome Back, Kotter. Do you know that one?

    ANYway, you do look great, and I did notice that the *sandals* still fit great! LOL!

    I thought of you a couple of days ago when I saw those exact jeans on clearance at Target. In my size. I still couldn't bring myself to try them on, though. You know, you have the white pants diet, I have white pants aversion syndrome (WPAS - an official diagnosis will be coming out of the medical community soon, I am sure.) Maybe after I've lost some more weight I could wear them...or maybe not! ;-)


  10. Ya'll are too cute! And I think the dress is adorable. You look great no matter what you wear, even when you're, as you say, "crusty."

  11. Glad you had a great time away. Happy Anniversary! I LOVE your nieces little pig tails, she is adorable!!

  12. You are totally adorable! And I want that mumu dress.

    Also, that green works really well for you. And also, I'm jealous of your thin thighs. I don't know if we can be friends anymore.

    And another also, congratulations to you and Ben. Not so much on the distance alone (10yrs.) but the dorkiness and nausea that remains..... That is the REAL trick.

    And again, I love that dress.

  13. Oh, girl, you look adorable! White pants or mumu dress, it doesn't matter. :) SO glad you got to get away with your honey and relax. Great pic of the two of you. Welcome home! :)

  14. Sarah, the dress is darling! I wore white pants yesterday to a lunch date and totally thought of you!
    Congrats on 10 years and 3 boys!
    Love, Love, Love little Maddy's piggytails!
    Have fun playing house!

  15. Jodie: ...thin thighs...HA! I took 10 pics at different angles until they looked smaller...for real. But, you are now my new BFF for saying it :)

  16. Happy Anniversary
    The dress is darling

  17. Fun pictures! That dress...adorable. Happy Anniversary!!!

  19. Sarah, you are so pretty! Congratulations on 10 years of marriage! I'm so glad you had a great trip. :)

  20. I'm so glad you had time away with the hubby especially after all you have gone through lately-Aint God good, He knows what we need and when we need it.You are beautiful in jeans ,in dress, withoutmakeup or anyway-you cant mess up true beauty!Hubbyis pretty cute also!!!!
    Be blessed-I know you are:o)

  21. Love that dress. I'm kinda groovin with the new mumu look of all the dresses and shirts out. My hubby says, you look pregnant. But I don't care. He always tells me how beautiful I am when I'm pregnant so maybe that is a compliment. You look so rested. I'm glad you guys had such a great time. It will be great to be home but also hard after being away.

  22. I'm so glad you had fun! The dress is not a mumu. It's fantastic.

  23. Cute pictures. And happy 10th Anniversary!
