This was the first weekend in awhile that we were able to kick back and relax without any prior obligations. The summer weekends fill up quickly and we have a few early fall birthdays to celebrate, so it was nice to do things on our own time this weekend.
Friday – We went out to dinner at a pub/restaurant where my husband was able to partake in the draft specials as I enviously drank my lemonade. Two more months…
On our way out of the parking lot another woman and I backed into each other. It was pouring rain. I got upset. Life went on.
We then headed to Babies R Us or as my daughter calls it, “the baby store!” We picked up a couple items for the newbie; a blanket and sound machine.
Saturday – We went to a pancake breakfast for a friend’s daughter. I ate 8 breakfast sausages.
After breakfast we did our grocery shopping and headed to the AT&T store. I got the new iPhone 6s in gold. Not going to lie, rose gold was tempting, but I can’t be that girl. The phone was an early birthday gift from my husband – it arrives this week!
We got home and made our first fire of the year. It felt good breaking into our enormous wood pile!
I made a crockpot of beef stew and then laid on the couch for the rest of the afternoon. Those 8 sausages came back to haunt me.
Sunday – Potty training is in full effect. We decide to go the whole day (minus naptime and bedtime) without a diaper on. She does surprisingly well, barring a couple accidents, which we expected. We’re hoping to get her fully trained by the time baby #2 comes. Again, two more months…
We finger painted, made another fire, and played drums with da-da.
It was our first time making chicken pot pie and let me tell you, it was a HUGE success – so delicious on a cold fall day.
This weekend was a true lazy weekend and I’m feeling ready to hit the ground running today. I think my family really needed that time to decompress after a long and busy summer.
Next weekend is my birthday weekend. I’ll be “dirty thirty” and all that means is that I’ll be in the midst of potty training, probably without a shower, and there will be peanut butter crusted in my hair. 🙂
