It was a fun and productive weekend and all I have to show for it is 20 pictures of my dog. Is it hormones or just the fact that I’m home 24/7 that’s making me extra obsessed with my bad barky puppy?? Who’s to say!
My mom invited us over for dinner on Friday night and though I’ve stopped by my parents’ a few times during this pandemic, Joey and I hadn’t been over together for any significant length of time since who knows when! Their grill died as they were grilling burgers, so my mom had to pull out the griddle but it all still turned out delicious and it was fun to see our family in a different setting.
Joey got up and went on a run Saturday morning and by the time he got home, my craving for biscuits and gravy was in full force. Andi drove us over to The Noshery and then we served ourselves up in the backyard. Look, I’m not the biscuits and gravy expert in this family, but I was disappointed by this. The biscuit was so big and kinda hard/dry and not nearly enough gravy! What can you do?
We’d been waiting till after our baby shower to really get to work on baby’s room/all that stuff that babies and parents need to survive, so we bought all the stuff left on our registry and washed all of our cloth diapers. We’re giving it a go and we’re both really excited! Doesn’t hurt that all those diaper covers are so cute ❤ We also watched What to Expect When You’re Expecting at the suggestion of Bobby and those ratings are scary but it was pretty much what I thought it’d be, dumb but I laughed.
Joey made me dinner! Third trimester exhaustion is starting to set it and I was just done for by dinner time, so I could not have appreciated his cooking more. This grilled pizza was so good!!! I think we’re going to make it again real soon. After dinner, we walked Andi and then I suggested we hit up the new ice cream place down the street. They sell Little Man flavors exclusively which means we can have Little Man ice cream without the Little Man line!!! There was NO ONE there when we stopped in, so that was wonderful and it’s just peak summer to walk home at dusk with an ice cream cone 🙌 Back home, we watched The Art of Self Defense and it sure was weird but I think I liked it.
Sunday started with pancakes and then we really hit the productivity hard. Got all those diapers stuffed with liners, folded and put away, plus we washed A TON of baby clothes and got the white noise machine and nursery camera set up. Andi was NOT a fan of the white noise (though I did have it at full volume 😋) but he’s decided the Boppy lounger is his 😍 I think we ended up making the nursery MORE of a mess but we’re getting there. We also made a trip to Target (but not before I took a full on nap — I was OUT!) for baby hangers and to return a few things.
My sister and Wayne came over at 5 to make pasta! I had a dream I invited my sister over to make some with me then needed to make it happen in real life. She basically did all the work, so I lucked out! We all walked Andi afterward so they could see his Corgi friend Teddy and then we watched Big Brother! Bleh, Memphis does not rub me the right way, but it was a good look for my fantasy team when Christmas chose Ian as her plus one for safety this week.
How was your weekend?

This is a random comment but: I saw that biscuit & gravy photo and thought it looked too skimpy but felt bad, assuming you all had made it, but then I saw your comment. Definitely needed more gravy! I hope you find a better version to suit your craving ASAP. I’ve never seen the “What to Expect” movie and now I want to watch it just for dumb fun. I’m eager to hear how your cloth diapering journey goes! I think we got overwhelmed with logistics and never even thought about it with this baby, but maybe next time!
I felt like they way shorted me on gravy!! There was even a second biscuit, so that one definitely didn’t have ANY. We did all our cloth diapering research so long who so now I need to go back and remind myself how it all works 😋
