Weekend Shenanigans

Ugh. Monday. Am I right? I am exhausted! A certain Little Miss thought she was too good for naps all weekend. Goodness! Anyways, Saturday started off with an appointment at the hair salon. I love my hair girl, it was fun catching up with her and leaving feeling fabulous!

I mentioned Friday that one of my friends from Atlanta was coming to Birmingham this weekend. Unfortunately, Chris ended up having to work a lot this weekend (poor guy!!!!)….but we did squeeze in a great lunch with them on Saturday!

I suggested a few places to them, and they picked Saw’s BBQ. If you read any food critic list or southern magazine, you will know Saw’s is usually at or near the top of the list for best BBQ. It was so great getting to catch up with B and his wife. This was the first time that Chris actually got to meet them and I hope that we will get to see them more often now. Good company, good food!

Saturday evening I stumbled upon The Blind Side. I forgot how much I loved that movie! Speaking of things from the past….did you guys know that Party of Five is on Netflix?!?!?! I loved that show and I am totally re-watching it!

Sunday morning I read a little more of The Girl Before and flipped through a few magazines. We did our grocery shopping and dropped by to see our youngest nephew. He turned seven this weekend!! The rest of the afternoon was spent consuming fettucine alfredo, catching up on some of our shows and we watched the first three episodes of Big Little Lies! I was a little skeptical when I heard that they were making a tv series with it, but they have done a really good job. I love the casting!

Other things that happened this weekend? We took our first family photo of three. I know, she is almost 5 months old!!! I have millions of pictures of Zoe by herself, and several of her with Chris. But none of the three of us, and hardly any of me and her together. I have decided to really make more of an effort to change that. Even if they are with a few selfies!

 I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend! Linking up with Biana.

Easter Weekend Shenanigans

I can already tell that today is going to be a long day. A little miss had me up every 10 -15 minutes since 245am in a little game she called, let mommy think she is going back to sleep, jk! Needless to say, I will be running through Starbucks for a venti something or another with maybe even an extra shot of espresso. It is hard to be mad, because when I finally gave in around 430am, and considered us up for the day…I turned on her light and she just smiled up at me so big. And then an hour later when I was doing my makeup in the bathroom, she took her Minnie Mouse and covered her eyes with it and fell back asleep. Rude.

Anyways, Easter weekend was fabulous! I tried the Pink Drink from Starbucks for the first time. So delicious!!! I also really liked the coconut milk mocha machiatto.

Zoe and I got the grocery shopping done on Saturday. This picture is what I call, I am trying to avoid sweet treats but its Easter and single servings dont count…

And Zoe wore a different Easter outfit each day!

The Easter Bunny must have liked Zoe, because she made out pretty good!

He even left her a Giraffe and Book at her Memom’s and Grandaddy’s house….and a little bunny from her Great Grandma.

We had fun celebrating with Chris’s family yesterday. I think we should all get off Easter Monday to recover, don’t you think?

Weekend Shenanigans

I was going to say the first weekend of April is in the books, but um that was last weekend. Goodness, time flies. This weekend was full of adulting and fun. You gotta keep the balance, am I right??

Friday after work, I met up with my sister and we drove out to see my mom. I appreciate all of your well wishes and prayers for her. She was in good spirits, despite all things. I know she is in a lot of pain, but hopefully after she starts physical therapy and everything….things will get better. It was good getting to spend some time with her.

When I got home, Chris and I dropped something off to a friend and picked up some pizza at Marcos to bring home. It was delicious, as always!

Saturday we had a list of adulting things that needed to get done. Mainly getting a shelf for my office, and a few other things on the list. A trip to Bargain Hunt, Best Buy, Big Lots and Sams ensued. We also had some delicious food at Casa Fiesta! These chicken flautas will be ordered again!!

Sunday, Zoe took a three hour morning nap!!! THREE HOURS! Do you know what a mom can get done in three hours?? A LOT!!! I got the shelf built, cleaned up some of my office, and did some other stuff around the house. When Zoe woke up, she ate and then we did our meal planning and grocery shopping. I picked up BBQ for a late lunch/dinner and we got caught up on a little TV.

The rest of the weekend looked like this….

We got Zoe a Sophie the Giraffe for Easter, but after a week of constant chewing on her hands and drooling through many outfits…I decided to bust it out early. Clearly, they were instant best friends! I also suppose that Zoe might be in the process of sprouting some teeth soon. Hard to tell, I don’t really see anything.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Linking up with Biana.

Weekend Shenanigans

Rain, rain go away. Come again another day! Preferably one when I don’t have to drive downtown! I am just glad the threat for severe weather for our area went away for now. It is supposed to come back on Wednesday though. Woof. I HATE living in the south in the spring. Tornado warnings are scary! Anyways, enough talk about that. Let’s get to the weekend!

On Friday, Chris had a car delivered from Atlanta! He met them  in the parking lot of my office, so I got to see it when Zoe and I came downtown to meet my co-workers for lunch. His new ride is pretty sweet! It’s an Infiniti QX70.

Zoe and I had come to have lunch with my co-workers because one of them is leaving us 🙁 I hate that. He was the one that brought his lunch to work too and ate with me pretty much every day. We had to send him off with BBQ from Saw’s!!! Which, if you read Southern Living Magazine, is the best BBQ in Alabama. Yum!

Friday evening, my sister stopped by to bring Zoe her Easter present. She sure did get spoiled, look at all this stuff she got!

Included in all that were Zoe’s first set of blocks. She loves them! It is the coolest watching her discover and play with different things.

Saturday morning during Zoe’s nap, I went outside and cut the grass. I got about 60% of it done then. Man, it is so weird but I missed doing it last year when I was pregnant. I am not as in bad of shape as I thought I was, because I wasn’t really struggling much. Just with my allergies. Stupid pollen.

Saturday afternoon, we took Chris’s car downtown and he showed me where his new office is. He started a new job two weeks ago, and I am so happy for him. He is loving it and seems so much happier. I am so proud of him for the position that he has now with an amazing company. He has worked so hard to get where he is, and he truly deserves it. I know great things are in his future! He is truly amazing at what he does.

While we were downtown, we grabbed a late lunch at Skycastle. We both enjoyed a local beer too. Mmmmm.

Sunday, Chris came out dressed and ready to go on a mission when Zoe and I were playing in her room. When the Nintendo Switch came out, we had one preordered. We decided there were no decent games being released for it so we canceled it. Now that you cant really find them easily, it made us want one more. Haha. Go figure right? Chris had heard that Walmart had gotten a shipment in Saturday night, so we high tailed it over there before grocery shopping. We found it! I swear we just like the thrill of the hunt more than anything. We still dont have any games for it.

During Zoe’s afternoon nap on Sunday, I finished cutting the grass and vacuumed out my car. Talk about getting shit done! I then came back in and had a little playtime with her when she woke from her nap. I seriously cant get over how stinking adorable she is. Just full of personality too!!!! Thanks Laura for the super cute elephant romper! Zoe looks adorable in it!

And look at her “supermanning” in her crib.  I swear this child is going to be on the move sooner than later. And probably building some ab muscles in the process.

I hope you had a fabulous weekend!!!! If you live in the path of all this rain and storms, stay safe and dry my friends. Have a great week!

Another weekend come and gone! This weekend we got a lot of adulting things done. It started off Friday night with the delivery of our king size bed! Hallelujah! There is a HUGE difference between a queen and a king and there is no going back now. Not ever. We were a little nervous that it was going to make our room feel smaller, but honestly, it opened it up even more! Before we had a bulky headboard/footboard on our queen and we actually gained a lot of space in our room! We still need to get a headboard, but I want something simple and fabric that will hardly take any space at all.

Saturday we walked around Bargain Hunt. We found a filing cabinet for all of our papers that are sitting around everywhere so we “wont lose them.” Now they have a home! Yay! I also found a flamingo print romper for Zoe to add to her Easter basket. Then we were off to TJ Maxx for a mattress cover, new towels and a new floor mat for our bathroom. Do we know how to have fun or what? We found all of it. Success! Zoe was so excited…

We ordered BBQ and took it home to meet up with Chris’s parents.

Sunday, Zoe and I got out and did our grocery shopping early to avoid the rain that was supposed to come around noon. Spoiler alert, it never rained a drop yesterday! We also went to Sephora so I could pick up the Murad Acne Time Released Cleanser I wanted to try. My favorite LBB. (Little Black Bag)

Dave Chappelle is back! Have you watched his new stuff that is up on Netflix? Some of it was epic, some was just meh. Overall, we enjoyed watching both. I missed this man!

The rest of the weekend looked a lot like this…

When your own eyes are looking back at you…insert all the heart eyed emojis…

Saturday night, I think Zoe’s tummy was hurting. She was napping in her crib and she started crying. I went in there and she was reaching her arms up at me so I picked her up and she immediately fell back asleep on my shoulder. For nearly three hours!!! Oh, how I cherished the Zoe snuggles…

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Linking up with Biana.
