{WHW}: Friends, Crawling and a Sigh of Relief

Happy Wednesday, friends! Hoping that this morning brings us a snow day or delay, since that would be a great little gift for the middle of an already short work week! *Update: we got a delay!!

I'm coming at you a little late with my weekend highlights because of the long weekend and because I'm lazy. #honesty
This weekend had lots of highlights, including an incredible relief from something I've been stressing about for over a month now. More on that later.

Here are my highlights from this weekend:

~Friday night Mexican dinner date with this love and my hubby at Chuy's. Unfortunately the food there is just too spicy for me to even attempt to feed little miss their food, so she enjoyed puffs, and some pureed baby food while mom and dad housed chips and their jalapeno dip, and some yummy Mexican food!
~Friday also brought this adorable spaghetti faced picture from daycare. Someone loves her some meatballs and sauce!
Oh how I love that sweet face and those gorgeous baby blues!!!

~Saturday I had a baby shower for a friend from work in the early afternoon so I headed out that way and spent some time showering the mama-to-be, and baby girl. Unfortunately, my phone was in my purse which was in the other room the whole time, so I didn't snap any pics, but I stole this one from her of her gorgeous cake!
~Once I got home from the shower, I pumped and we headed over to our friends' new house to "watch" the Eagles game. I say "watch" loosely because we came with a baby and there's really no watching of anything other than the baby lol. But it was cool to see our friends, watch some of the game in pieces and get to scope out their house. Oh, and eat some pizza--yum!
~Ella and I headed home and MG stayed with his friends to watch the end of the game because someone had bedtime. The rest of my evening involved catching up on Teen Mom OG and The Bachelor (which I've gotten back into because that show sucks me in every time).

~Sunday we had a big event in our household: someone has finally figured out how to crawl. Well, army crawl, but still. And this crawling which she's been working on for a while, was prompted not by toys...no...by jewelry. She was motivated to get my watch...and off she went! 
~Sunday also involved lots of snuggles with our princess, and then watching the Vikings game! We have been rooting for the Vikings for YEARS because our friend Kev is one of the coaches, and this year has been SO fun. I won't lie, that game gave me major heart palpitations, but it was an INCREDIBLE ending!
~Facetimed with our friends who were also watching the game, and also texted with our friends actually at the game. So happy for the Vikings and really hoping they make it to the Superbowl!!

~Monday I ran some errands and picked up these adorable jammies at Target. The Cloud Island ones are my absolute favorite jammies and you can't beat the price ($13 for a set of 3). They zip from the bottom up so you don't have to get baby naked for diaper changes. Obsessed.
~My mom came for lunch in the early afternoon and brought us soup dumplings from a restaurant near her house that we love. So much yum!

~Later in the afternoon I went to get an ultra sound of a lump in my breast that was discovered at my yearly appointment. I've been worried about it but tried to put it out of my mind over the holidays, knowing that my appointment was around the corner and hopefully all would be fine. After a WHOLE to-do yesterday including making me wait an HOUR past my appointment time (when I was already nervous), I got the ultrasound and all clear that it's just a cyst and nothing more. THANK GOODNESS! When I was laying on the table waiting for the doctor to look at the scans, I thought about a bunch of things---how great life is right now and how I want it to stay that way. I said some prayers and talked to my dad...so glad that it all worked out because the stress of having this hang over my head for the last month has been weighing on me. MG has been wonderful and reassuring during the times I've cried with worry. Just glad that I can put this behind me, focus on the good, and leave the worry behind.

So on that note of relief, I hope that your weekend and your week have been smooth and filled with fun!
Link up with Jessi and I below and share what's hap-"pinning" with you!!


  1. I'm SO glad your ultrasound came back clear!! I know that had to be terrifying. Too funny little ones crawling was prompted by jewelry! That means you could be in trouble as she gets older! (; Have a great week!

  2. I'm so happy it's only a cyst! I can only imagine how terrifying that must have been. I love that you still watch Teen Mom OG, so do I! I can't get enough :) And I love Arie so I had to watch the Bachelor this season

  3. I'm so glad it was just a cyst!!! I would have worried too and I'm glad your husband is so supportive and reassuring! And that baby shower cake looks so good!!!

  4. Thankful your ultrasound came back all clear! That's definitely very nerve wracking to go through but I'm glad it's behind you! Yay for the little crawler! Biana | BlovedBoston

  5. What a relief. So glad it was just a cyst, but still scary. yay for crawling. Its a whole new ballgame now. I thought about yall when the Vikings won.

  6. Oh so glad the scan was okay-- SO nerve-racking. I had a scare like that in college and I swear the ultrasound tech took FOREVER. Minutes feel like hours in those situations. In lighter news...Go Ella and Go Vikings!!!!! XOXO, R

  7. I still can't believe the ending of the Saints-Vikings game, absolute craziness! And SO happy to hear it was just a cyst. I can't even imagine the stress that was putting you through.

  8. I'm glad to hear the ultrasound was clear! The games were crazy this weekend to say the least. I have to check out the Cloud Island jammies- that's a great price and love the ones that just zip, make it so much easier on us!

  9. So glad the ultrasound was clear, I cannot imagine how nerve wracking that was. Ugh I was on the other side of that Saints Viking game and it still feels like I watched a car accident, it was so terrible to lose like that. Yum yum to the Chuy's love that place! One day she will learn to love the yummy food like y'all!

  10. So glad you got a clean bill of health! I had the exact same scare about 3 years ago. You've got too much more livin' to do (and more babies)!

  11. So glad to hear everything is ok!! Yay for for that sweet baby girl starting to crawl!

  12. ALL the praise hands! Wonderful news all around - from your health to friend time to football wins to cute jammies! Love it!

  13. Aw, you go Ella crawling!

    So happy you're all clear.

  14. Yay for everything checking out ok. I would have been worried too. I am so glad it was a cyst and your dad was watching over you. I was thinking of you when I watched the Vikings game this weekend. What an ending. It was one of the best NFL games I have watched in a long time. Yay for Ella starting to crawl!!!

  15. Awww yay for crawling!!!! :) It's definitely a new adventure.

  16. So thankful for the good news! God is good!!

  17. Aww she's moving a grooving!! SO exciting! That baby shower cake is absolutely beautiful, too.
