I’m sure that I had some of you wondering if there was any baby news happening since I never got around to putting up my meal plan post yesterday. But, alas, there is no new babe yet. It was just merely of me being too lazy to get on the computer.
The weekend was still a good one though, despite having no new members join the family just yet! On Friday, Jay had a softball game and since I don’t really have the energy right now to chase Lucas around an open softball field/area, we decided not to join. But because it was so nice out, and I wanted to get him out of the house for a bit, I called up my mom to see if she wanted to join us for a little trip to the playground. Thankfully, she was in!
We spent probably a good hour or so there, and let him run of some steam/energy, which he certainly has more than enough of these days. It was a new-to-us playground, too, and I think we’ll definitely be back; especially since it was super close to our house!
Once we got home, it was time for a tubby and bedtime, and I then happily sat down and relaxed with a little potty training reading and a vanilla ice cream cone with rainbow sprinkles.
Life is good. And yes, potty training is on the horizon. Likely at the end of the month. With a newborn. But I figured, hey…at least I’ll be home with him AND I’ll be able to drink wine. Not too bad, right? #dontanswerthat
Saturday was a chill/work around the house sort of day with no real plans, so when our friends Joey and Kate texted to see what we were up to for dinner, it all happened to work out that we could get together. Best part? They brought us Chipotle.
It has been foreverrrrrr since I last had a burrito bowl from Chipotle, but man, was it good.
And so was the company! We all had a great evening hanging out in the backyard (please don’t pay attention to the disaster of a grass situation we have going on back there…)
and then even brought the fun inside for a bit so the kiddos could wind down with a little dessert and Paw Patrol.
Sometimes, bribery is the only way to get this kiddo back in the house. Anyone else??
Sunday was another chill day at home (we clearly left the weekend open just in case anything was happening), except for a quick trip over to my parents’ house for the boys to get some hair cuts. While Lucas napped, Jay and I did a bunch of clean up in the basement and started priming the walls for painting…and all I’ll say is…I hate painting. But at least we’re making progress, so I can’t complain.
Besides that, it was just the three of us at home, and despite having to be stuck inside due to the rainy weather, we all had a great day!
And since I never put together a meal plan post yesterday, I’ll leave you with what we had last week here.
Weekly Meal Plan
Quick and easy was the name of the game this past week!
Monday (Memorial Day): cookout at my parents’ house with cheeseburgers, roasted veggies, potato salad (and unpictured corn on the cob)
Tuesday: Grilled london broil with leftover orzo salad and macaroni salad
Wednesday: Crockpot pesto and mozzarella chicken* with baked sweet potatoes and veggies
*I found this recipe on Pinterest and did a few slight alterations by using about 1/2 a packet of dry Ranch dressing mix (all I had) and only half a stick of butter but it was really good and super easy.
Thursday: Beef and noodles with tomatoes (I came across this recipe on Pinterest and it was surprisingly good! It needed some extra spices, but other than that it was great, quick, and cheap!)
How about you guys? Did you all have a fabulous weekend? Do anything fun or exciting?
