Gratefully, *pt* and were able to get away for a weekend in the busy month of November for what we called our “baby-cation”.

It was our last (mini)-vacation before our little “Squirt” arrives. We decided to look for a place to go within a 2-hour radius to save a bit of money by being able to drive and to leave right after *pt* was done with work on Friday afternoon.

We ended up in Ballston Spa, NY and stayed at the Medberry Inn and Spa.IMG_3117


Ballston Spa is a quaint, simple, little town that was perfect for a relaxing weekend away. 

IMG_3118 The weather was crisp and cold but clear for the time we were there. We took a few walks around the town and stopped in some of the unique stores. There were a few antique and collectible shops as well as small hometown gift stores and restaurants. IMG_1402IMG_3119 IMG_3120We really enjoyed our weekend! The food we had was good (especially the fried ice cream–made with Corn Flakes) and we had a wonderfully relaxing couples massage. One of the best I’ve had! The therapist was so sweet, she said I seemed so comfortable that she let me borrow the pillows that I was cuddling with during my prenatal massage for that night! You know pregnant women and their pillows. 

We are very blessed to have been able to take some time away just the two of us before we become a family of three in a few weeks.

Tradition Continued

A few weeks ago we were able to continue our tradition and head up to West Point Military Academy for a football game. *pt* was able to join us this year too!
We were a small group of 8, it was chilly but sunny so it wasn’t unbearable. Once we were in our seats I even had to take my coat off because the sun was warm enough and there were plenty of people around to stay warm for a bit without it.

We had lot of yummy food for tailgating both before and after the game. IMG_3140That’s right- Grilled Pizza! The only photo I took of the food but the most unique in my opinion 🙂

My dad standing during the halftime ceremony honoring our veterans and the men and women currently serving! This was definitely one of highlights of the day! I love that my dad is a veteran, it makes me proud. IMG_3143


Army won so that definitely made the game even better!
