So much to love about weekends

Ahhh, I looooove weekends. And we finally had a weekend with beautiful weather that felt like SPRING. It was sunny, not too hot and felt good just hanging out in sundresses. Which is my favorite type of weather. Especially with being super pregnant – not having to pull on pants or winter boots or my winter coat has been amazing!

Anyway, here’s a little how the weekend went.

It started with Friday night pizza. I had to work late (work is a little cuhhhhrazy right now), but it was all worth it when I got home and got to enjoy pizza night with my boys. Especially since FW ate nearly a whole slice!

Saturday morning, we walked to the nearby Farmers Market and got breakfast at a diner while we were there. There’s a diner right by where the train stop is and FW loved watching the trains go by. 

He also loves it when the weather is nice 🙂 

I love Farmers Market season! There were so many great flowers and plants out there.

That afternoon, after doing some chores, it was time to celebrate Cinco De Mayo AND Derby Day! B’s family hosts a big Derby party every year and this year was no different. We bet on a few horses and enjoyed watching the race. 

It was such a beautiful night to be outside with his family and FW loved playing with all the kids. He may have been out a little past his bedtime … but look at that sky!

Sunday was a pretty productive day. We cleaned, cooked, meal planned and went grocery shopping. We went out to breakfast, went for a walk and even took naps. We had originally had lunch, mid-afternoon AND dinner plans but they all ended up falling through, so we ended up doing some prep for when baby #2 arrives.

Oh yea, and of course we had to watch some basketball this weekend. Go Cavs!

 

this was my breakfast. They ran out of yogurt so my granola and fruit were a little dry 😦

FW liked his grilled cheese and ate a few bites of his nest egg.

Is the baby’s room ready yet? No … but we’re getting there!

Some questions for you:

  • If you have kids, do you remember how far in advance you got their rooms ready?
  • How often do you do yard work? What’s your least/favorite yard chore?

I’m linking up with the weekly wraps.

Day Off, A Shower, A First Communion, A Party and SPRING

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?
