Weekending Highlights

Happy Monday--did you get your fill of green beer this weekend?
Obviously, green beer wasn't in the cards for me (and I'm totally ok with that), but it did have some nice highlights, even though it was a relatively low key weekend overall.

My highlights this weekend included:

~Mexican food for dinner (baby happily kicked in approval) at Chuy's. We can't get enough of this place!
~a quiet night in watching Manchester by the Sea which, to be honest, was SUPER depressing, long, drawn out, and I wish we hadn't watched it. The acting was good, but it was SO long and depressing. I wouldn't recommend it.

~Saturday morning we ran some errands at the mall, had lunch at home (leftover Mexican from the night before) and then headed over to our friends' place for a post-St. Paddy's day get together.

~We were only planning to be there for a couple of hours and ended up being there for 6. Time flies when you're having fun, right? We got to see and play with our friends' twins (lots of smiles and laughs) since they came for a bit, too. Cute kids definitely become the entertainment for the group get togethers now haha

~Sunday morning we ran our weekly errands in the rainy weather. Luckily things cleared up after a bit, though.

~Got in some baby prep reading with one of my new baby books--feeling a bit more prepared for this life changing event...or, as prepared as I'll feel anyway haha
(anyone else expecting, I recommend this book--so far. I'm about 1/3 of the way through and finding it pretty helpful).

~in the afternoon, we decided to go and see Logan, the new X-men movie. My only stipulation for going was that it had to have reclining seats for this preggo, which it did :) It was good, but very heavy and kind of dark--not like the typical Xmen movies at all. If you like the series though, you'll probably like the movie.
~We picked up Chipotle for dinner since it's one of my approved meals that doesn't set my sugars too high, plus I just don't love cooking on Sundays. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, this time my numbers sky rocketed to the highest they've been. Hoping that was just a fluke :/

The rest of the night was pretty uneventful which is my perfect way to spend a Sunday evening.

Hoping your week is off to a good start after a great weekend :)

  1. Glad to know Manchester by the Sea isn't worth the rent! I had thought about it since the Oscar buzz but I'm not into long and drawn out movies. Hoping your sugars balance out this week!

  2. I totally agree about Manchester by the Sea! We watched it last weekend and felt the same way, such a sad drawn out depressing movie! Wish we would have known that before

  5. I've heard that "Manchester by the Sea" was depressing from a lot of other people, too! Definitely won't be spending money to watch that one OnDemand! ;) And Chuy's, oh my, yes. Love that place!

  9. I didn't like Manchester by the Sea either! I thought it was super depressing and also just way too slow moving. I kept expecting there to be a love interest or something redeeming at the end and nope. Just so sad. We have a Chuy's near us and I really like it but my husband isn't a fan so I'm always dragging girl friends to go with me!

  10. I thought Manchester by the Sea looked good but every review I have seen says it's bad so I think I'm going to pass on watching that! Hope that was a fluke with your levels and they're good the rest of the week!
