Happy Monday! I'm recovering from a really fun weekend of celebrating MG's birthday throughout the weekend, so of course there were lots of highlights:
~Friday morning my work Christmas Elf struck again, leaving me 11 tea bags for the theme of "11 pipers piping"
~Had hubs' birthday gift waiting for him when he got home from work (with a few more coming soon in the mail)
~Got ready for MG's birthday dinner out at Eddie V's...wore one of my new Loft tops (not maternity, but definitely wear-able during pregnancy; I love the bell sleeves on it)
~Had the most amazing meal at Eddie V's: moscow mule for MG and a mocktail for me; lobster bisque and wedge salad to start, MG got the steak and I got the shrimp, plus we got the truffled mac and cheese to split. And we ended with blackberry cobbler which was SO good.
Everything was SO good, and let's just say I was glad that I had my belly band handy that night lol
~Walked around for a bit after dinner and enjoyed the rainbow Christmas tree
~the next morning MG decided he wanted to replace the toilet in our master bathroom so I accompanied him on a trip to Lowes to pick it up...and a few hours and some curse words later, we had a new toilet installed
~While MG worked, I did a lot of baby research for things to add to our registry. I think I have a pretty good base for all of the major things--the Baby Bargains book was super helpful and I highly recommend it to moms-to-be!
~Went out for a sushi dinner that night and then came back and watched more episodes of Goliath--soooooo good!
~Sunday morning started with blueberry pancakes and was followed up by errands for the week
~Headed to one of our favorite restaurant/bars to celebrate MG's birthday with a bunch of his friends while watching the 1pm football games. Everyone showed up and several hours were spent chatting and watching games (sort of haha), and we even had an appearance of our friends' twinsMG enjoyed some baby holding...becoming a natural, that one :)
~Headed home around 5:30 to eat, shower, watch a bit more football and relax for the night
Overall, I'd say it was a successful birthday weekend for MG. The biggest highlight for me was when he told me that this is just where he'd want to be in his life on his birthday: with me, and our baby on the way. #mush :)
Hoping your weekend was fun, too!
