Weekend Things

Well we did NOT have a baby this weekend, much to the dismay of my mom, who wrote 10/10/20 on her prediction card from our shower, but we did eat some really good burgers, watch some Halloween movies, put up our little library (finally!), clean the house, oh and Joey caught on fire…

I’ll be 39 weeks pregnant on Wednesday! I’ll also be getting my first cervix check and I’m nervous-excited. We are getting so so close and I can’t believe it! Celebrated Friday (and the continuance of summer weather) with burgers from Park Burger and man, were they good! Afterward, we retreated inside to watch Hocus Pocus and though I love that movie, can I just say how weird it is that this is a Disney movie and part of the plot revolves around Max being a virgin??

Started Saturday with whole grain chocolate chip banana pancakes (the chocolate is on the other side!) and one chocolate-less mini pancake for the pup. Then I did a little bit of cleaning, a little bit of reading and a little bit of bouncing on my yoga ball while Joey put up our little library and did some yard clean up. We took our trip to the office later, then came home and walked Andi before dinner.

So yeah, Joey caught on fire. We were boiling a pot of water for pasta on our biggest burner, where the flames sort of come up around the side of the pot if you have it on high and as he was standing in front of that pot, he was pouring something into the pan on the burner next to it and thought “it’s really hot” and then when he looked down, his shirt was on fire!!! He literally said “oh, I’m on fire” and then he patted it out somehow. Andi and I were way less calm about it ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ RIP to that shirt that had been getting lots of good comments from strangers when we were out on walks.

Post-panic attack, we watched The Burbs (I legit love that scene when Tom Hanks freaks out then yells “take me to the hospital, I’m sick!” and puts the gurney in the ambulance by himself ๐Ÿ˜‚) then yes, we watched Hubie Halloween. I really can’t with that voice Adam Sandler is doing/has done too often, but luckily there’s a billion cameos to be distracted by and we did get some laughs out of it. June Squibb rules! Also, two-thirds of the way through, my dad texted saying he had just finished it, so like-father like-daughter โค

Well this is the only picture I have from Sunday, but don’t take it as a sign the day was boring because it was actually really nice. We got breakfast from Onefold — coulda sworn I took a picture of my first time having their bacon fried rice (UH YUM) but it’s MIA now — finished SNL (I thought Bill Burr’s monologue was pretty cringey but I’m not as outraged as the internet seems to be), Joey cleaned our floors and bathrooms (๐Ÿ™Œ) while I read and then we watched My Octopus Teacher, a documentary about a man observing (befriending??) an octopus for it’s year-long life and I maybe got teary at the end. Also wondered what that man’s wife thought of him spending every day with an octopus ๐Ÿ˜‚ Finished the day with leftovers, the briefest of walks because we had “tropical storm-level gusts” for most of the day and like three episodes of The Vow, during which Joey made us popcorn! How was your weekend?

Weekend Things

Ooo, this weekend was a good one! I’m just going to jump right into it!

Friday has become our take out night and I’m not mad about it. We decided on Work & Class, where we brought home way too much food for two people but it was all so good. I got a raspberry date honey mocktail and it was amazing! Back inside, we watched The Devil Wears Prada because I’ve watched 75% of it like three times and never seen the end?? Stanley Tucci was my favorite part.

I made us both avocado toast for Saturday breakfast and then when we were done watching The Kitchen (Sunny made paella packets on the grill and said it makes a perfect camping meal and now I’m never going camping unless there’s a paella packet ๐Ÿ˜‹), we started our breastfeeding class. Not going to lie, I’m excited but overwhelmed by the thought of starting this journey in a few weeks, but it’ll all be okay!

Later on, Joey put up these cutie bookshelves in the nursery (they came sooner than I thought!) and then we maybe ordered two more because they’re actually in stock now and turns out baby already has a ton of books! We ate leftovers for dinner (this was SO GOOD) then watched Vertigo (we are on a real Jimmy Stewart kick apparently) and I did not see that twist coming! That Pink Elephants on Parade-esque scene (you know the one) really freaked me out ๐Ÿ˜ฑ but I truly dug the movie.

Sunday was the best day! Firstly, we didn’t have to decide what to have for breakfast because we were headed to my parents’ for John Legend’s breakfast sandwiches + hashbrowns by Mom โค She pasteurized eggs for me, can you believe it?? Afterward, we FaceTimed my uncle in New Orleans and got to chat for a good bit! Joey, my mom, my sis and I all walked over to the grocery store so Joey and I could grab mums and pumpkins and then, since Joey and I are putting ourselves into quarantine this week, I made my family take one last picture with pregnant me. The next time they see me in person, we’ll have a baby!!! Whoa, that is surreal to think/say!

Back at home, we set those fall decorations out on the front porch, finished our breastfeeding class, read, watched football (well, one of us did…) and sanitized stuff for baby. Another check list item to cross off! We made this Roasted Butternut Squash with Chorizo-Spiced Kale for dinner and it was a lovely little fall veggie dinner for a chilly Sunday night. Big Brother afterward and I’m ready for this season to get interesting already. I hope your weekend was wonderful as well!
