Date Night, Days with FW and Baby Brunches

For having a weekend with little on the schedule, it seemed pretty jam packed again. I don’t know how that happens? As much as I love getting out and doing stuff, I am longing for a weekend where I can lay on the couch, eat popcorn and catch up on Netflix and reading …

Anyway, here’s some of the fun stuff we did this weekend. We started out with a date night for B and me. It was a belated birthday dinner!  We went to Nuevo, a local Mexican restaurant and had some great food. We shared some guacamole, fried plantains, tacos al pastor AND carne asada.

After, we ended up picking up Katie, B’s sister, who was babysitting FW, some pizza in Little Italy. So of course while w were there, we stopped off at Presti’s for dessert!

Saturday, B had plans to paint, so my job was to occupy FW most of the day. So, here’s what we did.

We tok a long walk in the morning. 

We even walked to the nearby lakes. I think FW enjoyed it – he didn’t sleep!

We also played and read a lot in his room. I’m getting sick so there was some playing with tissues (clean ones, of course!).

We also checked out the local library. We’d never been there and I think FW liked it a lot! He played with some of the toys and loved the fish tank. 

Saturday night included some takeout pizza (with eggplant on mine, yum!) and a little relaxing, which was definitely called for.

Sunday morning started with a  brunch/baby shower for Anson! She is due in about two weeks with baby #2, so Lulu and I organized a get together at Le Petit Triangle. I had some great French toast with lemon curd and berries. Their French toast is on challah and so good!

After that, we went to the West Side Market to get in some grocery shopping.  It had been forever since we shopped there and it was so nice to be back!

Love shopping here!

That afternoon included some chores (including raking) and then spaghetti and meatballs at B’s parents house. Pretty much the perfect fall meal.

Questions for you:

  • Did it feel like fall where you are this weekend?
  • Do you like eggplant on pizza?
