Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

This last weekend Stephen and I took a couple of extra days off and had a little staycation. We really had a lot of fun! The first day of our staycation we took Preston to the Zoo for the first time! We really had a blast! It was a beautiful day, Preston was so happy and all of the animals were out! I think Stephen and I might have had more fun than Preston at this age, but regardless he ended the day passed out with a souvenir puppet from the gift shop!

The next day of our staycation, Stephen and I opted for some alone time. After dropping Preston off with grandma and grandpa for his first overnight stay without mommy and daddy, we headed to Grapevine and got a hotel room at the Gaylord Texan. Our plan was to get some good rest in! After visiting some of the local wineries, having dinner and hitting up the Glass Cactus we decided that the idea of relaxation was out the door! The next morning we woke up and ordered room service before heading to pick up Preston. We were tired, but we had a blast!!

Sunday night we headed over to Steph and Gene's for a fun Oscar party complete with a red carpet and Marilyn Monroe! Although we hadn't watched many of the movies, its always fun to see the dresses and see which movies we should watch! ;)

Monday was spent catching up on housework getting ready for another work week. I did get to spend extra time with Preston which was a bonus! We had a wonderful staycation! I highly recommend it for sure!!
