Weekend Shenanigans

Hello, middle of February. What?! This weekend came and went so quickly! Don’t they always? I saw so many snow pictures on Instagram from all you ladies up north and you know what we were doing here? Turning on our air conditioning and wearing short sleeves with temps over 70 degrees! But then it dropped to 40 last night and I woke up this morning to it being 66 inside our house. Southern problems.

Zoe had her two month wellness check up on Friday. She did real well during the whole thing, until it was time for her vaccines. My poor baby! She was all smiles and then the mean nurse stuck her in her thigh two times and she screamed and made noises I have never heard come out of her. She then proceeded to give me the “I trusted you” side eye while I was trying to get her dressed again. I don’t know if it was harder on her or me?!

Chris and I stopped by Target and Best Buy after and then picked up Marcos pizza to take home since out little bear was tired.

See, she was still not amused when we got home….

Saturday we headed to Babies R Us to return a few things that we aren’t going to us. It’s funny when you create a registry and think something is so important, but then you never even open it! We picked up a humidifier and a Bumbo seat while we were there. Look at my big girl sitting up all on her own with this thing!

Zoe fell asleep, so Chris suggested we go to Outback and share some cheesy fries and a drink. It was almost like a date since someone slept the entire time. We ordered some coconut popcorn shrimp as well, and I got a strawberry peach sangria. It was delicious!

Sunday was all about meal planning and grocery shopping. I ordered the Molten Chocolate Frappucino since it was only out for a limited time. It was delicious and not as sweet as I thought it was going to be which is a good thing. Any moms out there have any tips on how to have more space while grocery shopping with a car seat??? Zoe’s doesn’t have anything I can hook it to up in the child seat so I am walking around strategically placing things all around her. Luckily I haven’t had a grocery avalanche yet, but it is only a matter of time. I know it will get easier when she can sit in the seat and we wont have to worry about her carrier.

We also grabbed a few things for Zoe for Vday at JcPenney. I went looking for something for me and came out with something for her. Of course! She is in 3 month clothes right now, but I figure in two months when it is warm all the time she will probably be in the next size up so I went with that. Besides, 6 months was the smallest tutu that they had and I wasn’t passing that up!! I got all three of these items and a work out tank for me for $17.12!! If that isn’t a bargain, I don’t know what is.

For seven years I have made Chris lasagna for Valentine’s Day. This year is no different. I actually made it last night and we will have it left over Tuesday. I don’t get home until 7pm the nights I go to the office since I have to go pick up Zoe, and lasagna take some time.

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

    I loved that picture of her in the shopping cart surrounded by all your groceries! The ‘my mom is my stylist’ outfit is sooo cute! It sounds like you guys had a great date night at Outback– popcorn shrimp is my favorite! So glad her two month appointment went well even with the painful shots!

    Poor little Zoe! It’s always the worst when they don’t understand what’s going on, but I have a feeling that it was probably harder on you than it was for her. And hooray for keeping the lasagna tradition alive! Prepping in advance is definitely a good thing! I hope that your week has started off great!

    check the bottom of the car seat — usually the notches used to snap into the base are the same length/spacing as the foldy parts of a cart and you just put the seat right on there…at least that’s how it is over here…i can’t imagine it would be different in the US?

    shots are the worst but necessary. my pedi used this trick where he would gather the skin in a certain way to insert the needle and kayla never felt it but once another doc did her shots (her regular pedi was busy so his partner did it) and he just jammed it in and i nearly hollered YO! take it easy, bro!! kayla looked at him, looked at me and started wailing! 🙁

    Poor baby! But looks like she’s feeling better. I opened our windows and turned off the heat yesterday… woke up to it 60 in the house! Oops! I want to try the new Starbucks drink – can’t say no to chocolate! Can you send me some lasagna for Valentine’s Day? I’m horrible at making it!

  • Reply StephTheBookworm February 13, 2017 at 1:22 pm

    Aw, poor baby. The shots are always the worst. She is so cute though!
    I don’t drink coffee but I went to Starbucks yesterday to try the molten hot chocolate. I thought it was okay but a little bland. Bummer. 🙁

    That lasagna looks amazing!! I never realized the struggle of grocery shopping with an infant! There really is no space to put them!

  • Reply kristen February 13, 2017 at 1:42 pm

    aw poor baby and her shots. my friend had a grocery mishap with a car seat (nothing scary, just groceries fell on the baby/car seat but at least the car seat didn’t fall out or whatever) so from then on she just popped baby in a wrap or like an ergo. presto, lots of room in the cart. haha. that sangria looks AMAZING.

    Shots are just the worst, but she’s precious! Getting so big!

    I used a wearable baby carrier (Babybjorn) throughout much of my daughter’s infancy. She seemed to never want me to put her down, and it was the only way I got anything done. So that’s what I used while grocery shopping. I think I bothered removing the car seat from the car maybe once or twice, and then that was it. If I took her out of the car, I was carrying her either in my arms or in the Babybjorn.

    Poor sweet baby girl! I love the little onesie that says my mom is my stylist! I hope this week goes smooth for you my dear!

    I can’t believe she’s 2 months already! I love the lasagna tradition! That sounds really good right now too.

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista February 13, 2017 at 8:04 pm

    Oh my goodness I can’t handle the cuteness! 2 months already?! And I’ve been wanting to try that Starbucks drink, I don’t think I’ll make it there in time! Cheers to a fabulous week gurlie <3

    We have the same southern problems with temperature going up and down from day to day. Sounds like little Z was a trooper this weekend on her outings. I haven’t seen a pic of Chis is a while but it looks like he’s dropped a ton of weight! Go him!

  • Reply Caitlin @ Candyfloss & Persie February 14, 2017 at 12:26 am

    oh man, she looks so cute in the little cart! aw, tucked away. I’m glad you guys could sneak a date while she was snoozing. I bet that was a rare treat!

  • Reply Laura February 14, 2017 at 7:28 am

    I love the pics of her in the Target shopping cart! Girl is a shopping natural! And that peach sangria – yum!! Glad you and Chris got to have a semi-date, and he looks like a pro carrying that diaper bag! And that pink tutu is just the cutest!! JCPenney for the win!

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! February 14, 2017 at 11:07 am

    Zoe is just the CUTEST!!!! I was not impressed with the Molten Chocolate Hot Chocolate…but maybe because I wanted something sweeter? In the end, I gave it to the hubs 😉

  • Reply Audrey February 14, 2017 at 11:52 am

    Coconut popcorn shrimp sounds incredible.
    That pic of Zoe with the “sassy” shirt is too perfect!! Shots hurt but you know you’re helping her in the long run. No worries, mama!
    I love the lasagna tradition!
