Weekending

Today's the last Monday before my Winter Break which means only 5 more work days to get through! I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...hehe

My highlights this weekend included:

~Going for our anatomy scan--waiting an hour past our appointment time before getting called back. All in all we were there for 2 hours!
~Found out that baby looks WONDERFUL and HEALTHY! Thank you for all of the well wishes and prayers that our little one is in good shape!!

~Got to see our little nugget let out a yawn during the ultrasound, and also what appeared to be a laugh which had us and the ultrasound tech laughing. It was so cool to see baby G's arms, legs, feet, toes...and lots of wiggling around in there!

~We also found out the gender, and I'd be lying if I told you I wasn't bursting to let the cat out of the bag, but we're being good and keeping it hush hush until Christmas with our family (but man is it hard!)

~Had some celebratory "we have a healthy baby" pizza for dinner, and had lots of talks about the baby
~Went home and watched Secret Life of Pets--I've been waiting MONTHS for this movie to come out on demand. It was really cute! 

~Hot cocoa, marshmallows and Christmas lights--what's not to love?
~Saturday MG went to volunteer--I was supposed to go but the volunteering was outside for 4+ hours and it was freezing out, so we both decided it was smarter for me to stay at home instead of risk getting cold and sick

~Got in a morning workout and did some laundry instead

~Did some of our last minute Christmas shopping for our family since it's right around the corner!!

~Since we were in the area, we stopped at Brio and had dinner which obviously included some lobster bisque (best lobster bisque ever!)

~Sunday started with pancakes, followed by errands

~Drove to meet up with my mom to have lunch and celebrate MG's birthday. We discovered an authentic Chinese restaurant that had soup dumplings (if you've had them in NY, you know what I'm talking about)--oh my word, they were good!! (not pictured because we ate them so fast haha)
~Took care of a few more gifts, and watched some of Season 2 of Fuller House (which apparently came out on Friday)

All in all it was a pretty chill weekend, but a very exciting one, none the less :)
Here's hoping for a smooth week ahead!

  6. So many great things!! My anatomy scan was the same except it was my fault we were there for so long because I was almost an hour late due to a wreck on our way. My poor doctor was concerned when she did my blood pressure but it was all because I HATE being late. I can't wait to see if y'all will be celebrating with a sweet baby girl or a handsome little guy next year! So very exciting.

  11. So glad Baby G is healthy! Pizza is definitely the way to celebrate. I didn't know the second season was out! If I had known that I probably would've watched that instead of starting a new series on Netflix.
