Weekend Things

Well, looking back on these photos, it was a weekend of outdoor movies, late nights, dinner salads and sleepy pups.

We also got the best start to Friday with a visit from Hannah and Mason, bearing gifts! Hannah passed along some maternity clothes and I thought I was doing fine just wearing the same four things I’ve bought, but now that I have more (way better-fitting) options, it feels like a godsend! Mason is ready for baby brother’s arrival and thinks he’ll have black hair. I can’t wait to see!

That night, we made a grilled corn salad, then Joey got us all set up for our first outdoor movie night in the new house. We were about to toss our old duvet cover, but Joey realized it would make for a good screen, so we got it hung and queued up Jaws, which I’d “seen” but not really seen, ya know? Turns out it’s a classic for a reason because I thought it was GREAT. It was after 11 by the time we got into bed and Andi was clearly exhausted 😋

I slept in on Saturday (I guess Andi wasn’t the only one who was tired) but Joey was up early pulling garden weeds and now it looks so much better out there! Not everything came up, but what did looks pretty good. Also, I’d seen Wooden Spoon post a picture of peach danishes the day before and HAD to have one, so I put in a pick up order for us and Joey grabbed it and I was in my happy place.

I’m pretty sure I spent the rest of the day buying decor for a table we have in our entryway 🤣 and Andi and I also took a nice nap before dinner. We made these grilled chicken sandwiches and even though they look really good and the flavor was spot on, I put an heirloom tomato on there and it was SOGGY CITY. I only complained the entire time I ate it 😋

At 8, we met my sister and Wayne at the drive in for a Beauty and the Beast/Iron Man double feature! I have a love-hate relationship with this drive in because on the one hand, it’s fun to go watch a movie in your car on a summer night but on the other hand, I could not make out any of the dark scenes and at one point, it REEKED of trash. Oh well, we’re still going again in a couple of weeks. I hadn’t seen my sis since the 4th of July so it was nice to yell to each other from our cars parked with an empty space between 😋

It was Joey’s turn to sleep in on Sunday (it was like 1 AM by the time we got home from the drive in!), so I got up and made us pancakes then had to go wake both him and Andi up. Later on, I gave that pup a bath, read, ordered groceries and did some prenatal yoga. We made dinner salads (again but different), then walked Andi and watched the second half of Iron Man because we actually left early the night before and I don’t know if I’ve really watched that movie since it came out in 2008. Let me tell you, it holds up!

Popping in with the briefest of posts to say I turned 31 on Thursday, it is a million degrees every day and we watched many good things this weekend!

25 weeks on my 31st birthday and what a joy it is!
Joey got me BTS socks & Uno and says I need to come out to the internet already, so here, I’m OUT! Please know that my love is rooted in a sincere appreciation of dance but now just includes everything about this 7-piece 😉
Every red velvet cake my mom makes is my favorite red velvet cake ❤

The rest of the weekend involved Friday night pasta, Andi waking from a tongue-out nap and Joey painting the nursery (!!!!) this lovely color of pale green. Plus, we watched Palm Springs on Friday, finished up Normal People on Saturday and watched Hamilton on Sunday. What a weekend of watching amazing things!!! I thought Palm Springs was a DELIGHT, Normal People was so frustrating to me because I just wanted the two main characters to be happy and together but by the time it ended, I was just so moved and impressed by this show and Hamilton? Yeah, I totally get the hype!
