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!

What did you do this weekend?

Weekend Things

I’m embarrassed to tell you:

I spent every night of this weekend at home and liked it.

How devastated I was when we went out to Saturday breakfast and they were out of the dish I had fantasizing about for three days.

The level of excitement I had for my massage (but mostly to see my mom) on Saturday afternoon.

That I saw Beauty and the Beast again.  I know, I know, but I wanted Joey to see it and I wasn’t about to send him on his own.  (Plus you pick up on so many things you missed the first time around, i.e. “Who can make up these endless refrains like Gaston?”)

I tried really hard to put off working out all weekend.  

We started re-watching GIRLS, which makes the third time I’ve seen the first two seasons.  But, ya know, I wanted to binge-watch it before we watch the final season.

“It’s pretty hard to mess up granola,” were the words I said before semi-burning the batch I had in the oven.

I took very few pictures this weekend.

Sunday salmon happened… again.

Not embarrassed to tell you that I thought this weekend was perfectly laid back and delightfully uneventful.  How was yours?
