All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

Another Get-Away


A great blog friend of mine commented on this post, “and then you’ll think WHEN CAN WE GO AGAIN?”

She was right!

From the moment we had dinner that first night in Telluride last month, Hottie and I knew we wanted to get away again… and soon!  We had a back-up sitter lined up for our Colorado trip who asked us to find a weekend soon that she could come and stay with the boys.  With Hottie’s work schedule involving so much travel lately (3-5 nights a week, every other week), I’ve been losing my mind a bit each time he travels.  I needed a break!

I texted our friend just over a week ago asking if she could stay with the boys soon and she asked, “next weekend?”. OK!

It was only one night and the boys loved it. And we loved it! We ate great food, shopped together, grabbed cocktails in between stops, had REAL conversations, and held hands. Just what the doctor ordered for this tired mom and her Hottie!

We’re going to try to do this every-other month!

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. How fun for you two! I’m so glad you both are able to get out more together!

  2. Ugh you better quit bragging about all this time away that you and Hottie are getting, I’m getting jealous! 🙂 But really, I am so glad that you are able to get away. You both deserve it and it’s great that you are having such a good time, all of you!

  3. Good for you two!!! Like Steph, I am a tad jealous! I know I am probably still a while away from doing this with Ez because she is still so young, but gosh, parenting two sure is exhausting. I am looking forward to our first getaway together. We’ve only left Lids for a night three times in her almost 3 years, and one of those times was while we were in hospital with Ez while she was sick, so not a vacation AT ALL. Someday!! I am so happy for you guys that you have been doing this. So good for the relationship! 🙂
