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 themย  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 ๐Ÿ™ 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.ย  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!

Linking up with Biana.

    Yay for a new car and job for Chris! Your sister definitely spoiled Zoe with so much cuteness for Easter- love those little dresses! I hope the switch is fun when you guys end up getting a few games. I was just talking to my husband about Zelda yesterday and saying I wish they had it for playstation!

    Look at all those Easter goodies! She is one loved little gal! And of course she looks amazing in her little elephant romper! I have never even heard of that game console!

    Stay safe with all of the scary storms! We were supposed to get it pretty bad on Sunday but then ended up getting barely any rain, which I guess is a good thing. Chris’s new car is so awesome, and hooray for getting stuff done! I feel like I never get anything done on the weekends and then end up stressed during the week.

    Yay for all things Nintendo, when you pick up some games you’ll have to let me know what you think of the new system. Check out Chris’ new ride, but booooo to bad weather. Tornado threats are so scary! I’ve also been eyeing those blocks at Target *surprise surprise*, and since they’re Zoe approved I’ll have to finally scoop them up ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! April 3, 2017 at 3:29 pm

    My husband is DYING for a Nintendo Switch, but we’re having the hardest time finding one, too! Hopefully soon…

    Congratulations to Chris on the new job and car! I know he works so hard! I love those Infinitys. I wanted the bigger one but I really cannot handle it. Haha. We’ve been hit with awful weather lately, too, and supposed to get hit on Wednesday as well. The south is so scary this time of year. Stay safe!

  • Reply Biana April 3, 2017 at 7:40 pm

    Congrats to you guys on the new car – it’s beautiful!! Hopefully the weather isn’t too scary for you guys!! I hope you have a great start to the week! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    Ooh! Congrats on the new car! Zoe has really hit the jackpot on loot, hasn’t she? That romper is adorable. Lemme know how the Switch works out. We’re kinda on the fence about it, since the only game I’m really interested in is Zelda (and I can get that for the Wii U I already have), but the concept of a console and handheld all in one definitely intrigues me.

    Congrats to Chris on his new job as well as his sweet new ride! I hope the storm didn’t hit yall too badly. Sweet cheeks is looking cuter and cuter as she grows and her smile is a delight!

    Man, she racked up!!! I love all the stuff she got. You can tell she loves the blocks! That’s great! Fan new ride and office–congrats to Chris!! Another great weekend in the books.

    Such a good weekend! I wonder if Zoe’s floral t-shirt comes in adult sizes? She’s so cute! I had fried pickles over the weekend, too. They aren’t something I get very often but I forgot how much I love them.

  • Reply Alicia April 4, 2017 at 1:33 pm

    How did y’all like Skycastle? We’ve been wanting to try it out.
