Hello, hello to all of you! I totally meant to (and tried to) check in with you all yesterday, but it just wasn’t in the cards after a longer than usual bedtime routine for a certain soon-to-be 4 month old. Ay yi yi.
So anyway…the good news is that Jay and I were able to enjoy a few hours out by ourselves on Saturday night. WOO HOO!
One of Jay’s cousins got married up in Lake George, which actually happened to be at the same location my friend Kathryn got married at about four years ago. So fun!
And not only was it great to be able to have a night out with the husband, but that also meant an evening with some of our favorite cousins. <3
I tried hard not to check in too often with my parents to see how the boys were doing, because I had a feeling I’d regret it if I did.
So instead, I enjoyed a few glasses of wine, danced it up on the dance floor, and had myself a great time. Everyone else was doing the same!
We came home to find out that Alex had given my parents a bit of a run for their money (he took a few hours to finally fall asleep…), but he did finally fall off to sleep a little after 9pm, so I guess it could have been worse, right? Grandparents are saints, I’ll tell ya!
On Sunday, I got up and out a little early to meet my wonderful friend Kanika for breakfast. This was amazing because a) I will forever and always love going out for breakfast, and b) I just love time with my Kanika.
I went with a pretty basic eggs + bacon + toast + potatoes, but then Kanika (who clearly knows the key to my heart) asked if I wanted to share a “breakfast dessert,” by ordering their apple cinnamon bread french toast. Ummmm…don’t have to ask me twice!
And clearly, it was good enough to forget to snap a photo before it was all gone. Whoops.
But seriously…breakfast dessert is basically the best thing ever.
After breakfast, I came home just in time to be able to nurse Alex (which meant no pumping…YAY!) and we all just hung out for most of the afternoon.
These two… <3 <3
In other news, I feel like my house is a total disaster. It hasn’t been dusted in ages, and I swear, I can’t tell you the last time I actually saw all of my kitchen counters.
We have clothes piling up everywhere that need to be put away because #toosmall.
Which means I’m also grabbing MORE bins from down in the basement to find clothes the next size up for our growing little Alex.
^^FYI, we haven’t given the Merlin Sleep Suit a try yet with Alex but we might. We bought it for Lucas and I think we only used it one night for like, 2 hours. Anyone else love this thing? I feel like everyone who has it swears by it!
I also feel like I have never ending piles of laundry to do these days, too.
But hey…at least I managed to get our mantle all decorated for Halloween, so I’ll call that winning.
So right now, I think I’m going to either fold some laundry, go through some Usborne Books stuff, or go grab a bowl of ice cream (I think we all know which one is happening…). And tomorrow (Tuesday) I’m excited to be joining Lucas on his first field trip through preschool!
I hope you guys are all having a great week so far!
