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 😱😱😱 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 πŸ˜‚) 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 ❀

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 (πŸ™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 πŸ˜‚ 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?

Guys, have I mentioned we’re bored?? In addition to just quarantining and waiting around for baby to arrive (not yet please, but soonish πŸ˜‹), I also had time to take a total of four pictures this weekend. I have a feeling this post will be brief!

I’m now on a steady diet of dates, don’t worry about it. My favorite way to eat them is by blending them into a smoothie with milk, peanut butter and banana. So good!

Everyone celebrates Friday with a big salad, right?? This one had all the fun things though (chicken made THE BEST way, goat cheese, bacon, avocado and crispy shallots!), so it felt Friday-worthy. We also started watching To Catch a Thief and then I had to put Joey to bed we were both too tired to finish it and went to bed.

Started Saturday with breakfast sandwiches and a blueberry cream cheese croissant from the Wooden Spoon, then we finished our movie and I didn’t love that one, to be honest. Why was everyone so tan?? In search of something to do, Joey went down to start organizing our basement and… I made padsicles! I’m sorry if you’re not here for talk of postpartum recovery but um, I, a 31-year old woman, did not know anything about the bleeding and cleaning and icing and general pain of postpartum so I’m not even about to continue that trend of keeping it hushed up. I hope my future self thanks me for making basically an aloe and Witch Hazel coated underwear ice pack πŸ˜‹

Later we took a trip to our office to check the mail and I put on real clothes to do it because it was truly my excitement for the day πŸ˜‚ That night, we watched The Devil All the Time and even though Rob Pattinson should not be allowed to do accent work (or maybe even act at all), and even though this movie didn’t get great reviews, we both liked it? Made it through Weekend Update on SNL and I thought that episode sucked.

Sunday morning pumpkin waffles! I haven’t been able to get canned pumpkin in weeks and weeks but I had just enough in the freezer to make these waffles and they were so good! My new trick is to just sub buttermilk for milk in every recipe. Andi also approved.

The afternoon included football, a long walk for the pup, making pickled veggies for banh mi dinner, Joey finishing the basement organization and I took a nap πŸ‘Έ After dinner, we walked the pup again (yes, I am doing all the walking!), finished What We Do in the Shadows and started The Vow. Also, my family FaceTimed us and they were all having tacos together and I wish we could have been with them! I hope your weekend was more eventful πŸ™‚
