Old Brooklyn, Banh Mi, Birth Class

This weekend was brought to you by the letter B.

Because so much we did had to do with the letter B. We went out in Old Brooklyn on Friday night, spent most of Saturday in birth class, went out for a walk in the beautiful weather, enjoyed some pho and banh mi with another pregnant couple … well you get the idea. Here are some of the highlights:

Friday night we had a date night out in Old Brooklyn. This meant pizza and wings at Dina’s. That’s my deluxe pizza 🙂


Followed by Honey Hut ice cream for dessert. I enjoyed some vanilla peanut butter. YUM.20160422_202902

And an early night – I fell asleep watching the latest season of Kimmy Schmidt. I love the show!


Saturday morning B and I had birthing class. It was ALL day – 9-5, and I wasn’t really looking forward to spending the whole day inside. Luckily, they gave us an hour lunch break so B and I got in a short walk during the break.20160423_170223

The class was actually pretty interesting and not a bad way to spend a Saturday. Definitely informative and I realized how much stuff B and I do not know about birth and the after!

After the class we went for another walk – it had warmed up significantly and some random guy snapped this photo of us!20160423_173421(0)

Then it was almost time for dinner. We had plans to meet another couple (the wife is also due in June!) for Vietnamese food. We had some time to kill before dinner so we stopped off at the Asian market and I picked up some ginger candy. 20160423_184115

And then it was time for Superior Pho! Chicken cabbage salad, spring roll and split a banh mi with B.

Sunday morning I slept it and finally got 8 hours of sleep. I’ve been having trouble sleeping soundly the past few weeks, and I hope that Saturday night’s sleep is a sign that I’m back to my normal sleeping. Well-rested, B and I got in a run on another beautiful morning. 4 miles, under 10 min/mile pace and I was pretty happy.

After a notsoproductive afternoon, B and I decided to enjoy the beautiful weather and get in a walk around some lakes and a brook. The trees were all in bloom and it was perfect weather!

Followed by dinner at B’s parents house. And that was it! That was my weekend. I’m off to a super busy week – I have plans every single night, have a board event I have to present at and am traveling for work and then this weekend. And then it’s May!

And because it’s Monday, I’m linking up with ErinKatie and the weekly wraps.

Some questions for you:

  • Do you have a busy week ahead of you?
  • If you could describe your weekend with one letter what would it be?

  1. You have really had a great pregnancy! I hope it is smooth sailing until that baby makes it’s arrival.
    I’ll play along, one letter to describe my weekend. P. P and in Pee, we usually travel in our RV and when you got to go you just get up and walk to the back. In a car, you have to find a place, stop, get back on the road…. way too much trouble!
    Thanks for linking up with us !

  2. Back in the dark ages (wink) those birthing classes would scare the heck out of you! At least, my first one did. Thankfully, they changed their methods somewhere along the line. It looks like you had a beautiful weekend to enjoy the outdoors. My letter would be L – lazy, low energy, landscaping, laundry. Thanks for linking with us Melissa.

    • Hehe – dark ages 😉 This class would’ve scared me more except for the fact that three of my friends just had kids so I’ve heard many of the horror stories recently. It helps – I still don’t know what it will be like firsthand, but I know not to expect it to be easy/pretty!
