Weekend Things

Guys, have I mentioned we’re bored?? In addition to just quarantining and waiting around for baby to arrive (not yet please, but soonish 😋), 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 😋

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 😂 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 👸 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 🙂

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?
