You know it was a jam packed weekend when late Sunday night you're FINALLY sitting on the couch with your husband and you say to him 'What a weekend!" And his response is, "What weekend? I don't even remember everything we did." Yup, as usual, it was one of those weekends for us. Don't get me wrong - it was a fantastic weeked, but it was definitely quite busy. But that's just life, isn't it?! I know we aren't alone here. Life is busy. We totally understand. But we still try to enjoy it all as much as possible and do as much as we can!! So here's a recap - doing the best I can to remember everything :)
Friday right after work, I had to go get my car inspected and, of course, after that I hit up the gym. I didn't get home until after 7:30...after a quick stop for more eggs (a clean eating necessity!) Matt had already whipped up the batter for some paleo pumpkin pancakes, so as soon as I got home we started them and made up some scrambled eggs! I seriously love breakfast for dinner :) Yum! Yum!!
After we cleaned up, I spent the next couple hours finishing up my thank-you cards from the baby shower and Matt put together the pack 'n' play (we got this one) Yes...there was some swearing and frustration from him during this process...
Saturday we were up bright and early to take our cars to the dealership for a recall. Good times, let me tell ya. Afterwards, I hit up the gym quick then headed home. We spent the next couple hours deep cleaning the house. As much as I HATE cleaning, I do love a clean house and feel so much better when it's done. After that, we showered up and headed out to go apple picking!! This is our second time already this year - a few weeks ago we went to get some ginger golds. This time around we got empires and fujis. It was the perfect fall day to be at the apple orchard...I loved every second!
Then we headed to Sam's Club to do our monthly shopping trip there and then off to Matt's parents' house to visit with family that were in from out of town!! We enjoyed hanging out, eating, playing with the kids, and (my favorite part) a bonfire!!!
I knew I wouldn't have time to hit up the gym on Sunday, so I got up early and did a prenatal pilates DVD. After that, it was time to get ready for Matt's school's annual fundraiser!! It was such a gorgeous morning to be outside and participate in this event for the amazing school he teaches at. After the walk, we headed off to go grocery shopping. We had just enough time to put the groceries away, change, and inhale a quick lunch before meeting up with friends to go kayaking!! We couldn't have asked for a better afternoon - it was perfect!!! We had so much fun!!
After a quick stop at Staples to recycle some old electronic stuff and Home Depot to get a shelf for the nursery closet, we were home again to prep for the week. Does anyone else do any sort of meal prep for the week on the weekends? I think next week I'll do a post on what we do each Sunday to prep for the week. So, anyways, we spent the next few hours prepping for the week, doing laundry, giving Matt a haircut (any other wives our there cut their husband's hair?!), doing a few baby related things, and of course whipping up a delish dinner of roasted spaghetti squash topped with tomatoes, mushrooms, and black olives!! So simple and yet so absolutely delicious. I'd eat roasted spaghetti squash every day if I could - one of my favorite foods.
And that my friends was basically our weekend...probably a bit more detailed than needed - but hey - it's my blog...I can ramble if I want :)
