Hello and Happy Monday!
I’m not going to lie, Mondays don’t have the same horrible feeling when you’re at home all day every day! Which I guess is a good thing? I hope all of you who had to go back to work today though are having a good Monday (if there is such a thing!)
This weekend was a fairly busy one for us, despite the crappy weather on Saturday. We got some CRAZY storms around here, that resulted in some serious flash flood problems! Needless-to-say, we stayed indoors as much as possible!
Despite the rain on Saturday morning, we were still up bright and early because we had some exciting plans. Well, exciting when you’re used to being stuck in the house for a good chunk of the day! We packed the baby in the car and headed up to Potomac Mills, a giant mall about an hour away from us.
We had two reasons for heading up that far. First of all, we were picking up a used MamaRoo from craigslist. Colton LOVES movement, so we are hoping that he’ll love all the different movement patterns in the MamaRoo. But we did not love the pricetag of a brand new one (in case he hates it), so thank goodness for Craigslist!
He was not so sure at first, but so far he seems to enjoy it!
The second thing on our agenda was to pick up a birthday gift for my Sister-in-law. Kate Spade was having a HUGE sale, so what is normally totally out of my price range was suddenly affordable. And let me tell you, it took everything in my power to just buy something for her. SO MANY CUTE THINGS!!!
Anyway, after doing some birthday shopping, we also hit up a few stores to try on clothes. Sadly I’m still in that SUPER awkward post-partum stage where nothing fits quite right at all, so I walked away with nothing but a hat for Colton.
Thanks to the rain and several accidents, it took us over an hour and a half to get home, so when we finally did make it back to Fredericksburg, we spent the rest of the afternoon just relaxing!
Eventually we pulled ourselves together enough to head back up to my MIL’s house to celebrate my SIL’s birthday, including a seafood feast, presents, and of course a couple of selfies. Sadly Colton didn’t want to cooperate!
By the time we got home it was way past our bedtime and we ALL crashed hard!
We originally had plans for a lazy Sunday morning/afternoon, but around 11:30 we got a call that someone wanted to come see our house, which meant that we had to frantically throw all of our stuff in the car and head out for a bit. Oh the joys of having a house on the market!
Thankfully our awesome friends Charlie and Lindsay let us come hang out at their place for a bit. Which also meant that we got to introduce Colton to cats. He didn’t seem to care. The cats, however, were not so sure about this little human!
Eventually we made it back home with just enough time to relax for a bit before we had to head out for the usual Sunday night routine – church and dinner with my in-laws. This was Colton’s 3rd church service, and the first time he actually managed to sleep through the entire service! Woohoo! We’re still working on figuring out his timing, so this was a major success!
Dinner was equally as delicious – chicken curry over rice with naan and roasted asparagus and brussels sprouts. Yum!
We made it home in time to start Colton’s usual nighttime routine, but sadly he was having none of it last night. I ended up hanging out on the couch with him until after midnight because he was just fighting sleep like crazy. So I am one tired mama today!
All-in-all, not too shabby for a weekend! Since we’re moving in just a few weeks, our weekends are starting to fill up fast, so this might be our last relaxing weekend before the big move. Yikes!
Hope you all have a great week!
So tell me: What did you do this weekend? Any delicious meals or great workouts?
