It was another truly beautiful weekend in CLE. It was SO good to have B around – his first week back at work went smoothly for all of us, but it is so so much easier and more enjoyable for all of us with him around.
So what did we do? Well, in no order … (seriously, no order. This is not a summary of Friday through Sunday- trying something new here)
We took a walk and enjoyed great views like this one:
I wore FW around – I’m liking this baby wearing thing!
We hung out with this little guy. I’m sorry in advance to all of you who follow me on Snapchat or Insta (@koskim on both) – for the abundance of baby snaps, videos, etc. I can’t get enough of him.
And this one. He is just too cute after his bath!
B and I enjoyed some delicious food and drink. It only took me 3 days to finish this iced decaf
And I drank a whole half of this grapefruit beer. Baby steps. And speaking of babies – did you know beer is GOOD FOR YOU when you’re breastfeeding? Yes, it’s obviously in moderation (as in, I drank half of it …) but I read it on the internet. It’s GOOD FOR YOU.
We tried out a new pizza place Friday night – it was pretty good!
I made French toast Sunday morning while B and FW hung out. Fact: Monk’s apple cinnamon bread makes amazing French toast.
Saturday night called for Buffalo chicken salads.
Patio drinks are the best. Don’t they just taste better when they’re outside on a summer day? And it’s a lot easier to take a baby with you to a bar if you sit outside.
We got in cute photos with the little guy like this one.
And a family photo.
We checked out what downtown looked like now that the RNC is in town. Check out the layer of barricades going down the street? The republicans AND media have invaded – you see CNN grill in the background? As of a few days ago that said “Hairy Buffalo.”
Twitter, Bloomberg, MSNBC and Washington Post have all taken over our former neighborhood.
And as usual we enjoyed a great family meal Sunday night at B’s parents. No photos – but imagine a RARE steak (#postpartumeats) and peach cobbler. YUM!
Well, here’s to a good week! Wish me good luck without B here during the days. I hope FW is getting used to life with just me during the days and will be a little less fussy this week.
Some questions for you:
- What’s something you’re looking forward to this week?
- Meat eaters- how do you like your meat? Rare? Well done?
