Ohhhh, Monday. Why do you creep up on us so soon??
We had such a nice weekend over here, I hope all of you had the same! I don’t have a ton to share, now that I look back on whatever pictures I took, but overall, it was just a really nice couple of days.
Our Saturday started out with soccer for Lucas, and the rest of the day (minus a quick trip to the grocery store for me and the little man) was spent at home. I got in a great workout, did a little cleaning, took care of some food prep, and spent the rest of my time playing with the boys.
We were having a little fun at dinner time with bubbles, in case you couldn’t tell.
We got lazy when it came time to decide on dinner and we treated ourselves to some Chipotle takeout. Chicken burrito bowl with some chips and all. the guac. for me.
It had been a while…almost forgot how much I loved those things!
And for dessert, Jay and I split a jumbo red velvet cupcake that I picked up off the “oops we made too much” cart at the grocery store.
I will gladly take advantage of that cart anytime I see something good on there.
On Sunday, we all enjoyed sleeping in until almost 8am, fed Lucas some breakfast, and then headed out to drop him off at my parents’ house for a few hours so Jay and I could enjoy a mini “day date.” We started things off by going out for breakfast which is, honestly, one of my all-time favorite things to do. I wish we could do it more often!
We went to The Eatery at Carol’s Place which, as you’ve seen here before, is absolutely a favorite of ours. I ordered an (enormous) omelet with broccoli, spinach, tomatoes, onions, and provolone cheese with toast and home fries. Ohhhhh, was it good…definitely a good way to start the day, if you ask me.
After breakfast, we went to the movies (first time since June!) to see a matinee showing of American Sniper.
Whew…what a movie. I told Jay once it was over that I don’t think I’ve felt that sort of gut-wrenching suspense from a movie in a long, long time. I can definitely see why it’s performing so well…Bradley Cooper was fantastic.
Never too old for a little movie theater selfie.
After the movie, we picked up Lucas and headed back home, and I did a little more prepping of food and salads for during the week
I also baked some oatmeal chocolate chip Heath bar cookies; they were from a bag and I just added the Heath bits so I can’t take credit. BUT, they were pretty delicious.
And then, the final highlight of our weekend is that, somehow, we managed to ditch the bedtime bottle(!!!!!).
Lucas just showed no interest on Saturday, so we decided to just go without it on Sunday and see how it went. Thankfully, he didn’t even miss it! Apparently, he was just ready to wean himself of it 18 months, who knew? Jay and I joke about that stinkin’ paci he still takes at bedtime but, honestly, I don’t think any of us are ready to give that up just yet.
So there are some highlights from our weekend! How about all of you guys? Did you have anything fun happening??
