Happy Monday, friends! I'm going into this week excited that it's a short week and at the end of it is lots of food and family!
This weekend was filled with the best kind of relaxation and low key-ness :)
My weekend highlights included:
~starting my Friday off with a decaf peppermint mocha #fridaytreat
~a little date night with MG to one of our favorite Mexican spots where we stuffed ourselves on chips and salsa and burritos.
~Watched one of the most ridiculous Dateline episodes (did anyone else see it? insane!) and actually stayed up almost to the end (which is quite the feat for me lately, making it anytime past 9:30 without passing out, let alone close to 11)
~Started Saturday morning early, and wearing my first maternity shirt (the bump is more obvious from the side--bump-date coming soon!)
~After breakfast, MG and I went to Buy Buy Baby again to check out the strollers we've had our eyes on, but got side tracked in the glider section since we saw a floor model of the one we'd wanted. It was a custom order that was cancelled and had just been put out the day before. We ended up getting it for $300 off the regular price!
|for my preggo friends: stalk the Buy Buy Baby by you (if there is one) for the floor models--you can get a phenomenal deal, AND you can use the 20% off coupon from Bed Bath and Beyond!|
~Luckily our friend was willing to come by with his truck (and happened to be in the area when MG texted him), so he helped us bring it home and get it upstairs.
He joked that he was the Raj in our relationship (Big Bang Theory fans will understand that reference)
~Took a long afternoon walk around the lake near our house since it was in the 70s. Toward the end of the walk, the clouds and wind rolled in and brought with it some really chilly temps!
~MG and I had another little date night where we grabbed dinner and saw Arrival which we both thought was really good!
~Did some early morning errands since I was craving pancakes and we didn't have any, so we got the grocery run out of the way, and MG was a saint and made me blueberry pancakes for breakfast!
~It was such a chilly and windy day that it was perfect for lounging the whole day in sweats, reading my Kindle, napping on the couch, and watching the Harry Potter marathon on Freeform. MG went to grab lunch and watch the 1pm games with a friend and I was more than content on the comfy couch, cozy and warm!
~Our power went out for about 2 minutes in the afternoon because the winds were so strong, but luckily it was short lived.
~Made my one pot lasagna soup for dinner since what's better on a cold and windy night than some yummy soup?
~Watched some more of The Crown (only one more episode to go!) and got ready for the short week ahead!
So, like I said, it was pretty low key and I was 100% ok with it!
Hoping yours was restful before the festivities of the week begin!
