Weekending: The One That Felt like Spring

Wow, the weather this past weekend was insanely nice and made it possible to have windows and doors open, and get in lots of outside time!

Lots of highlights from this weekend:

~The date night we thought we were going to have on Friday went bust because my BIL's sister and daughter decided to go home after their college tour instead of babysitting like they'd offered. It was a bummer, but we got to spend the evening with pizza and Ella instead which is never a bad thing.

~Watched The Big Sick which we enjoyed--cute movie!

~Saturday morning we woke up and decided to go to a local produce and flower market. They made it very pumpkin patch-like and it was the perfect place to take Ella for some fun Fall photos in her super cute outfit that my sister-in-law sent!

~We met another couple and their son while trying to take pics of our families, ended up chatting, exchanging numbers, and making plans to meet up again. Come to find out, the mom went to elementary school with another girl that I went to middle and high school with! Small world
the dads :)
~In the afternoon we decided to walk along the water towards Old Town and saw some gorgeous houses and views along the way
can you see the skeletons climbing up the house? So fun!

~We picked up some burgers at Whole Foods to grill up for dinner since the weather was so nice, and when we got home, we decided to open a bottle of wine on the deck and soak it all up. 
Ella enjoyed her frozen teething ring while we polished off the wine :)
~Ella went to bed at 7pm, woke up around 5:30 and nursed and then went back to sleep until 745 am. ALL THE PRASIE HANDS because I woke up for the first time in a LONG TIME and didn't feel tired!

~We bought this headboard for our bedroom because we moved the King sleep number bed into our room and it just needs a headboard to look nice. Hoping we like it when it arrives

~We ran errands in the morning and in the afternoon our friends Meres and Kurt came over to hang out and watch football (truthfully very little football was watched because we were all catching up)

~After the 1pm games, they went home and we took Ella for a long walk in her stroller because she hadn't napped well that day, so we walked until she slept, and then we kept walking so she'd sleep longer. 

~We ate dinner, and started her bedtime around 615 because she was SO tired from her bad napping that day and she was asleep before 7.

The rest of the night was low key, just gearing up for the week, but I DID manage to read some of my book, which I hadn't touched for months! A personal win for me because I've missed reading.

Hoping the weather was gorgeous where you were!
