Weekend Things

It’s Olympics time, baby! Meaning, my brain is a blur of swimming races, skateboarding tricks, Simone Biles routines and… the flagbearer from Tonga. HE’S BACK! And beside all of that, my phone is just a blur of Dempsey photos, so I hope you are ready to see them!

Would you look at that silly little boy?? He is very into eating my hair right now 😂 Lori came over to help us out while we worked on Friday. She left after putting Dempsey in his crib for his last nap, then Joey and I watched him roll around in there for AN HOUR before calling it quits. We distracted him by going to Chook for dinner and feeding him pieces of beet, smashed blueberry, chicken, mashed potato and Hawaiian roll. He was very into all of it! Managed to make it to normal bedtime, but I bet he was sooooo tired by then. We watched the Opening Ceremony afterward and though the broadcasters were calling it “modest,” I actually thought it was pretty cool! That drone globe was awesome and I love love loved that Pictrogram segment!

Made us ALL French Toast for breakfast on Saturday and Demps was very into it! It was the cutest. We had nothing to do that day, thank goodness! That little boy took a super short morning nap, so we loaded him up in the stroller afterward and he looked so out of it but we still had a nice walk. I snuck out to get a pedicure afterward and went to a new place instead of Base Coat. I really liked it and they were super fast. I hit Target afterward and while I was out, Joey sent me a Dempsey lunch update 😂😍 We had leftover burgers in the backyard for dinner and then after Dempsey went to bed, we watched some Olympics. Stayed up too late watching the end of the men’s skateboarding competition. I cannot believe some of those falls they take. Ouch!

A great great Sunday! Woke up and went on a run, then came home and made Joey and I that same egg breakfast from two weeks ago. I am obsessed! Demps was enjoying French Toast Round 2. While he was napping, we went over our August schedule (two first birthday parties, one baby shower and one wedding and they all ended up on different days!) and I, for one, am excited to not be hosting anything. We scrambled to get a few chores done and then my sis and Wayne come over to watch Demps so we could go see a movie! I actually really liked Black Widow. Florence Pugh is just so good in everything, isn’t she?? Later on, we met my family at Acreage for my mom’s birthday dinner and it was so damn windy!!! I think we were all covered in/eating dirt but no matter, because the cider was great, the asparagus was to Dempsey’s liking and Grandma and Grandpa got to give their grandson a bunch of toys ❤

Please tell me how your weekend was and if you love the Olympics as much as I do??

Weekend Things

Another weekend, another family BBQ. Whew, I am beat! But in a good way and actually, we had Friday and Saturday without any plans and that was really really nice. I had Dempsey all to myself that first night while Joey golfed and Joey and I were able to complete a little backyard project the next day. To top it all off, my brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew all came over on Sunday for ribs (SO GOOD) and major life catch up. It was their first time meeting Dempsey! What a sweet moment that was ❤

Someone slept in on Friday, woohoo! We took our usual weekly walk to the coffee shop and around 1:45, Joey took off to go golfing and I got to spend the rest of the evening with my cute date. Guys, my son has all the toys but what he really wants to play with is a dried up leaf on the ground 🤷‍♀️😂 Also, my date made me rip up his food and hand-feed it to him?? Can’t say I’ve done that on a date before! I grilled myself seven shishitos because that’s all that was ready to harvest in the garden and I can’t wait for more! I considered watching a movie by myself, but ultimately decided to just sit outside and read till Joey got home. It felt very nice 😊

Saturday Pt. 1 involved a perfect buttermilk waffle and Joey making me take that picture of Andi on Dempsey’s head. Who knows! Afterward, I headed to Tennyson for a facial. My usual place moved/COVID happened and I felt like I needed to find a new place closer to home. I really liked Alchemy Face Bar but I get so nervous about putting new products on my face and maybe had some anxiety during. It all went well though, so I’ll probably be back!

Saturday Pt. 2 involved that little rock garden project! We finally finally got our fountain delivered last week (the pump was MIA but we got it a couple of days later), so we were really eager to get the garden bed cleaned out and the rock put in. It didn’t take long and I really love the way it turned out! The sound of the fountain is so relaxing back there. Look at Dempsey’s top teeth and the cutest gap between them! I love it very much. Joey grilled us a pizza for dinner and was being so hard on himself for getting the crust a bit too crispy on one side. Uh oh, I’m rubbing off on him and that’s not a good thing! I suggested we get ice cream after and as soon as we got outside with the stroller and the baby, we realized we had a flat tire so we carried him the whole way and he only sort of grabbed for my cone of Salted Oreo a million times 😂 After he went down for bed, we started Loki!

Sunday started with egg sandwiches — wow, I am just realizing Joey cooked a lot of things for me this weekend 🥰 — then we got all prepped for our BBQ. I had baked the ribs on Saturday, so we had minimal prep to do. We hadn’t seen my brother & co. since my baby shower last August! My niece and nephew are both freaking tall!!!! It was a million degrees but the food and company were the best distraction. I loved seeing Dempsey with his cousins ❤ I maybe kicked my mom, dad, sis and Wayne out later because I was tired and needed to veg, ha! And I got to hang with Demps on my own again while Joey took a brief nap and he’s so fun to watch play. I love him very much! Ended the night with Big Brother and another episode of Loki. Please tell me what you did this weekend!
