A Perfect Day.

by katelin on January 15, 2018

You know those days when you just can’t wipe a stupid grin off your face? Those days are the best. And Saturday was one of those days for me.

On Friday, Matt left for the weekend to visit a friend in San Fransisco and I was all set for a low key weekend with Riley. And it sort of was. On Friday we had dinner at my parents’ house after we dropped Matt off at the airport and then I put Riley to bed and watched a movie. Riley was up a few times during the night and I was all set for Saturday to be super low key.

And in the morning it was. We woke up, watched a movie (or two), lounged as we had breakfast and just hung out. Later in the morning I got us ready and we headed out to what I thought would be a regular playdate at my friend’s house.

I was wrong.

In the best way.

Instead of a playdate, I was surprised with the cutest little Sprinkle shower ever. Seriously, there were balloons and ‘Welcome Baby’ signs and my family and friends and it was so overwhelming, but in a good way. My sister (and apparently everyone else) had managed to surprise me and even now, I’m still processing it.

I couldn’t wipe the dopey smile off of my face.

And I sort of still can’t. It was really just a room full of love and excitement and definitely made this whole “oh hey, I’m having another baby in eight weeks” thing a lot more real. It also made me realize just how lucky I am to have so many wonderful people in my life. It’s weird to talk about this without sounding like bragging, but I’m bragging, my village is a good one.

So the whole afternoon was spent with everyone celebrating Baby Bannan and wrangling Riley and it was perfect.

Afterwards, we came home and I got to spend time with my godmother and Riley got to play with his toys and watch some shows. Eventually I took him up to my parents’ house and they took him for the night.


I was riding on the high from the shower and basically got to watch a movie, eat some dinner in peace, read a book and go to bed incredibly early.

It. Was. Perfection.

The whole day was just what I needed. It was like a reset button on the past couple weeks.

And basically I’m just using this blog as a big ole thank you, because I’m just so grateful.


happy monday!
