This was definitely one of those weekends that felt like 3 weekends in one. We did quite a bit of fun things, that it felt like we packed a few different weekends in – which was fine with me! I’m trying to get as much in before baby #2 shows up in a month or so!
Friday ended up being a partially work-from-home day and partially watch-my-toddler-whose-daycare-is-closed-but-I-forgot day. Whoops. It’s okay – I was able to get a super early start on the day (hellllllllo third trimester not being able to sleep late but also being so tired all the time) and start working at the crack of down so that I was able to also spend some time in the afternoon with FW.
Thankfully, the day included some homemade bagels. This breakfast sandwich is from Cleveland Vegan and it’s pretty amazing – who knew I’d love vegan eggs and bacon?
We are members of the history museum, so around 4 p.m., we headed over there to check out their new dinosaur exhibit before they closed. LOVE being a member – we were able to get there 1 hr before they closed and explore for as little time as we want!
One of FW’s favorite part of the museum? Staring outside at the waterfall!
He’s also a big fan of the stegosaurus out front. a
And since were only a few blocks away, we hit up Little Italy for dinner! Mama Santa’s pizza, salad and mozzarella sticks FTW. FW even had a few bites of the pizza and mozzarella sticks.
Saturday morning, we spent some time outside. It was sunny and in the 40s, which felt so good compared to the weather we have been having. Dare I say it felt springlike?
That afternoon, it was time for my sister-in-law’s wedding shower. I can’t believe Mary is getting married this summer!
It was Parisian themed and my amazingly talented mother-in-law made tons of delicious desserts, including cream puffs and macarons.
Aren’t they adorable?
That afternoon, we spent some more time outside. FW got chalk in his Easter basket, so we finally pulled it out and got to work on the driveway while B did some yard work.
B also made dinner – taking advantage of the springlike weather, he decided to grill. It was the perfect meal for the weather!
Sunday morning started with FW’s cousin’s First Communion! It was a gorgeous day for the Mass.
AND the celebration that followed – my sister-in-law had an amazing spread, and we spent the afternoon with family enjoying the nice weather and what finally felt like spring.
The party lasted all afternoon, and then it was time for FW to get in a late nap while we strolled him somewhat outside. We did some more chalk playing (anything to stay outside!) while B did yard work. Hooray for spring! I hope it stays this way.
Some questions for you:
- Did it finally turn to spring for you?
- Did you get in some good outdoor time this weekend?

Yes! Spring has sprung! We still have that cool east breeze off Lake Michigan, which keeps things cool here, but the grass is turning green. So grateful. Thanks for linking up!
I can’t believe you are that close to your due date. It seems like FW was born just a few months ago. You look wonderful! I love the idea of a Parisian themed shower. I wish I had your MIL’s cooking skills. Thanks for linking.
You sure did have a really busy week full of fun and happy occasions!
Loved your post 🙂
I want all the treats from that shower – yum! Looks like your mesum trip was also a blast! Spring is definitely here in Georgia and I’m hoping it sticks around as long as possible before the summer slog.
