Weekending On Time

Do your eyes deceive you?? Yes, it's me actually posting on a Monday with my weekend highlights! 

This weekend was jam packed with highlights, which included:

~Grabbing dinner and bringing it home, and getting to have the cutest little hand hold mine on the drive back
~Passing out on the couch somewhere between 8 and 830 because I'm old. And I'm a mom. With a baby who was sick this past week. Thank goodness I got that extra sleep in because that sick baby was up at 4:30am needing some extra mommy comfort due to her cold.

~Saturday Cooper had an appointment to get his hair did, and he came back looking super handsome!
~We spent the morning in our PJ's, and introduced Ella to the jumperoo, which she finally fit into, and really seemed to enjoy it!
~In the afternoon we took advantage of the nice weather and took a family walk around the neighborhood

~In the early evening, our friend Wendy came over to babysit Ella while MG and I went out on a date night. We've had them here and there when family is around to watch Ella, but this was our first time leaving her with someone who wasn't family. Luckily little miss went down to bed easily and mom and dad hit the town! 

~We tried out a new-to-us restaurant called Succotash, which is inspired by South Carolina cuisine. MG and I ordered yummy drinks, the pimento cheese fundido for an appetizer (oh my word it was mouth watering)  and two delicious main courses

 ~After dinner, we walked around National Harbor since the weather was nice, stopped in a shop to get our friend some chocolate covered pretzels to thank her for watching Ella, and then made our way home.
~When we got home, we stayed up and hung out with our friend for a while before she headed home. Unfortunately Ella woke up between 1-2 am, coughing and had a tough time going to bed.

~Sunday morning we had a pancake breakfast and ran errands, and Ella slept for 2 hours!! All the praise hands!

~We did another family walk in the afternoon, watched football (MG and I both pulled out a win for our fantasy football teams, and I'm now 6-0!), and thennnnnn Ella rolled over from her back to her tummy for the first time!
the look of success!
~We had Chipotle for dinner, Facetimed with our Minnesota friends after their Vikings win, and finished off Sunday night being lazy and relaxing into the week ahead!

This is one of those weekends I'd do all over again (minus the middle of the night wake ups and a baby with a cold)! :) 
Hoping your weekend was just as nice, too!!
