i was able to sneak away this past weekend, without kids or husband, to attend my baby sisters graduation from saint louis university.
you know you're old when your baby sister is graduating college.
(i can't imagine how i'll feel when my actual BABY is graduating college)
hannah showed me around the lou.
we went to the zoo and the art museum...both of which are FREE.
the dallas zoo should jump on that free bandwagon.
i would take home a penguin if i could.
and that's saying a lot because i'm not an animal person.
she also gave me a tour of her ahhhhmazing campus.
complete with fountain jumping, cause apparently that's the thing to do.
and of course, we made a pit stop at the arch. no big deal.
it was so nice to be a tourist, without worrying about anyone else. is that selfish? probably.
but i thoroughly enjoyed eating delicious food and sightseeing, and walking miles upon miles without hearing anyone complain but myself.
st. louis is so rich with history. i found myself hanging my head out the window as we drove...just admiring every single building we would pass.
it was a really great getaway.
(i even got a 2 hour nap on saturday which was a glorious nugget from heaven)
BUT i sure did miss my people. miss olive ran all the way across our cul-de-sac just to give me a big hug when she saw me. that melted me.
a little time to yourself is good, and recharging. even if you did hang out, college style, and stayed up way too late...therefore returning a little bit more tired than when i left. which i didn't know possible.
