Happy Thanksgiving week y’all!
Hope everyone is staying warm, enjoying a light workweek, and ready to indulge tomorrow! We got home from Pebble Beach around 3am Tuesday morning thanks to flight delays, so we are readjusting to east coast time and trying to tackle the mounds of household responsibilities that awaited. Thankfully, Hughes has faired the best of the three of us… it helps when your daily schedule consists of eating every 3 hours, smiling and looking around for 30 minutes, then going back to sleep.
The Callaway Invitational was easily my favorite golf event that I’ve ever been to. One, because we were in the Monterey Peninsula, one of the most beautiful places in the country. Two, because Pebble Beach resort is amazing. Three, because the food at Pebble Beach resort is amazing. Four, because the weather was sunny and 70 most days. Five, because the tournament was low-key, so we were able to enjoy it without the typical pressures of a tour event. Five, because it was our first vacation as a little family (Hughes was a rockstar!). And six, because Chesson finished second! I sure hope we get to go back next year because last week was a blast!
Although we were said to leave the fantastic weather for the freezing rain in Raleigh, our flight home officially commenced the offseason. Chesson doesn’t play again until Hawaii in January, so for the next six weeks, we are going to soak in a “normal life” that involves eating at home, sleeping in our own bed, going to church, seeing our friends, and hopefully getting Hughes on a schedule. Sometimes this year, in the midst of the craziness of travel and tournaments, we would fantasize about the offseason. Although this is a time of year when a lot of people travel, we want nothing more to be HOME. Chesson has told me he plans to hunt, fish, and cook over the next six weeks, and although I have no interest in his outdoor adventures, I can’t wait to see him in the kitchen. We have a lot to do to wrap up this year and get ready for next year while we are home, but we are going to make sure to enjoy some down time as well.
As for a Hughes update, he is a perfect baby!! Ha. I’m definitely a biased mom, but I just think he is perfect in every way. He eats well, sleeps well, and has the cutest little mannerisms. He does get fussy and has an uncanny ability to dirty a diaper within 2 minutes of being changed, but that is quite alright. He reminds me of Chesson SO MUCH. His personality and his little mannerisms are just like his daddy and I keep reminding Chesson that he can’t get annoyed by his vices because he got them from him. I love him to the moon and back and am especially looking forward to the holidays because we will have him to share them with.
I’m not certain that I’ll be posting every week–as our home life might make for boring reading material–but I’ll keep everyone updated. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families. We have so much to be thankful for this year and every year.
