I'm back at work today after a wonderful long weekend welcoming Mr. C home, eating turkey and nursing a very bad head cold!
Friday evening I spent all day tidying up my place, organizing, deep cleaning and everything in between. I felt horrible but just tried to power on through as I knew no matter how crappy I felt on Saturday, I would be at the airport with the biggest smile in the world.
Saturday came in the blink of an eye and I was basically counting down the hours until I could head our with Mr. C's parents to pick him up at the airport. We made it there in record time and anxiously waited at the Canadian Arrivals section of Pearson. Sidenote, I could actually sit in an airport arrivals section all day and watch people being welcomed home.There is nothing sweeter than seeing people run through the gates towards their loved ones.
His flight was right on time and with about 3 suitcases, snowboard, golf clubs and 3 boxes he made it!!!!!!!!!! He was HOME!!!!!!!
We came back to my place (yes, Mr. C is living with me so I guess I need to start saying "our" place), ordered some quick pizza with his parents as we were all starving and they went on their way.
Sunday was filled with organizing and unpacking all of his belongings. Hot damn, he has a LOT of stuff and at this point, it was only about half of his belongings. He couriered the rest via Greyhound. Later that afternoon, we made our way out of the city to his parents house and had a delicious Thanksgiving dinner (though I could barely taste it due to my head cold). Turkey, stuffing, potatoes, squash, pumpkin and apple pie. Delicious and it was great to catch up with his family.
His mom made these gorgeous centerpieces where she got the idea off pinterest. Instead of the holly below, she added some colourful fall leaves. If you're looking for a centerpiece for an upcoming dinner, I highly recommend this idea!
And my desk area currently looks like this..
The weekend flew by and now I'm back at work for another stressful week. Mr. C starts his new job today as well and fortunately, it's with the same company he has been with for the past 4 years - just a brand new city! Such a blessing.
This weekend really reminded me how much I have to be thankful for. I'm going into this week with a fresh, positive mind and once again, hoping I come out of my last majorly stressful week alive and rid of this cold!
