A Hoppin' Weekend

Happy post-Easter! 
My weekend wrapped up the end of my Spring Break, and had some pretty good highlights!

~Friday pedicure to round out my week of relaxation (haircut, massage, pedicure...perfection)
~Check up on baby girl with my first non-stress test and a glimpse at baby girl's adorable little face (don't mind her squished nose haha). Baby girl is in the 80th percentile for size to which I say #eeeeek!
those lips!!!!
~Friday date night to Chuys
~Watching season 2 of The Fall

~Saturday morning I finished the book I'd been reading in bed before getting up. MG and I  had breakfast at home, and then made our way to Annapolis for the day. It started out a little overcast but by lunch time the sun was coming out and it was gorgeous out!
~MG and I wandered in and out of stores on our way to the waterfront and stumbled into a sunglasses store where MG found a pair...and I kept getting drawn to a pair, so we treated ourselves to some pre-Easter sunnies
~After lunch at the Iron Rooster, we walked down to the water front and took in the views (and walked off lunch)
~Around 3:30 we decided to make our way back home and listened to S-town on podcast (pretty interesting if you're looking for a new podcast!)

~Got home, took Coop for a walk, and then got invited over to my friends' house who had her baby at 35 weeks. Baby girl had just gotten home from the NICU on Thursday, and we were both anxious to meet her so we popped over. She is TINY, but so so so cute!
~Had a low key night in on Sunday and finished up season 2 of The Fall.

~Sunday morning we had breakfast, and ran some errands to the grocery store. I started reading a new book, and MG and I hung up the shelves in baby girl's nursery (pics to come)

~Decided to try out a low carb, low sugar peanut butter cookie--and they turned out pretty good! Nice to have another option when I'm craving something sweet! (the house smelled like peanut butter cookies for at least 4 hours after making them, too!) I'll post the recipe if you guys are interested!
~We decided to grab lunch at Yard House and eat outside since the weather was so nice out!
~Went for a walk, then came home and relaxed on the deck, and got to use my new pineapple Tervis cup which I love!
 Had a little relaxation before a couple of sprinkles came down, and I'm pretty sure I could live in a zero gravity chair for the rest of this pregnancy
~Grilled tilapia for dinner and just chilled for the rest of the night, and I finally got to try Halo top's mint chip ice cream which was awesome and fit in my carb count--woot!!!

Luckily I have a work from home day today to get progress reports done for the 3rd quarter, so it will be easier to ease into the work week after being off all of last week.

Hoping you had a nice Easter weekend, too!
