Weekend recap (Family of four!)

Weekend recap (Family of four!)

Happy Monday! I haven’t done a weekend recap in a few weeks, but there was just no way that I could skip one today.  It was easily the most wonderful weekend that I’ve had in my entire life, and it is all because it was the very first weekend that my little family of four spent together. We were released from the hospital on Thursday (which technically doesn’t count as part of the weekend…unless you’re in college).  Even though we had some wonderful doctors and nurses, I was just dying to get out of there as...

Weekend recap (sunshine & shorts)

Weekend recap (sunshine & shorts)

The weather has been so gorgeous in Charlotte lately.  I actually had to dig out my maternity shorts and tanks! Because it has been so beautiful outside, I decided to unplug for a bit yesterday and just enjoy the day with Michael.  We met up with my friend Kirsten at Panera for an early lunch, played with the new ball that I bought for Michael, and colored pictures in his Sesame Street coloring book while sitting on the patio. It was so nice to just soak up the sun and enjoy spending quality time with my little guy without feeling the need...

Mini weekend recap & baby girl clothing haul

Mini weekend recap & baby girl clothing haul

After lots of weather-related delays, MT finally made it home on Friday night.  We celebrated Valentine’s Day with a romantic dinner of Chicken Parmesan, garlic bread, and salad.  I also made red velvet cake since it’s MT’s favorite dessert. I looked on longingly as MT sipped his wine.  Have I mentioned that I cannot wait to be able to drink wine again?   The rest of the weekend consisted of lots of family time and errands.  We also watched Captain Phillips which was so good even though it was pretty intense. ...

Happy Monday! I had such a fun weekend with my two Michaels.  I took loads of pictures, so I’m just going to dive right into the weekend recap. We did tons of baby clothes shopping on Saturday for our baby girl, and we even scored some cute things for Michael.  I’m going to do a separate post showing what we got, but here’s a little preview…   Paddington Bear for Baby Gap Polka Dot Tulip Top   I could probably spend hours in Baby Gap.  Without a doubt, it is my very favorite place to shop for baby clothes. ...

Thanksgiving weekend recap

Thanksgiving weekend recap

Happy Cyber Monday! Please tell me that I’m not the only one who took advantage of the amazing online deals today.  Christmas shopping is officially done! But let’s back-up to Thanksgiving… We had a wonderful weekend eating, spending time with family, and decorating for the holidays. My boys sharing a sweet tender moment together.  I swear, they are two peas in a pod. I made my homemade applesauce for probably about the 10th year in a row.  This year, I used the slow cooker because I was hoping that it would make the house...

Weekend recap (date night & nursery progress)

Weekend recap (date night & nursery progress)

Since our baby girl might be arriving much earlier than expected, MT and I kicked the nursery prep into overdrive this past weekend. Things started off with a visit to Pottery Barn Kids on Friday afternoon where we ordered her furniture. We went with the Larkin collection in simply white and chose the crib (which has apparently been marked down online since then!) , nightstand, and changing table.   Image source   Later that evening, MT and I went on a long overdue dinner date while my in-laws kindly watched Michael (who was already...
