Excited

Sweatshirt // Leggings // Carrier

We had such a good weekend. Friday afternoon we had Hadley's 4 month check up which went perfectly! She's doing great with her weight gain after her eating problems (weighs 12 pounds, 12.5 ounces, 16% percentile) and is 26.2 inches long, so the 97% percentile! No idea where those genes came from. She took a super long nap when we got home, but otherwise tolerated her shots well. That night we went out for Mexican which was delish. Saturday, we hung out at home all day with Nick's family that came to visit. Hads took TWO HOURS to put down for bed that night - I'm thinking the 4 month sleep regression is the culprit - but after that, we got addicted to a new show: Homeland. On Sunday, we officially joined our church... it was also our first time going to church since the baby has been born... but she did so good during the service. We had to go on stage as new members and she was just smiling away up there, haha. Afterwards I ran errands and then we decided to ditch the rest of our to-dos and head out for a long hike. It was almost 70 degrees in November in Michigan, so we HAD to take advantage of that. The rest of the night consisted of showers, Hawaiian pizza and early bedtimes.

I woke up feeling weirdly cheerful this morning - especially for a Monday. I think it was the combo of a great weekend and lots of good stuff going on this coming week. A few things I'm excited for: a 60's and sunny weather forecast, that the election will be OVER tomorrow, Vanderpump Rules is returning (maybe I should be embarrassed about this one, ha), realizing I can buy Brady's dog food on Amazon Prime, that we're having this deliciousness for dinner tonight (thanks for sharing the recipe, Ashley!), that we're getting another Hello Fresh box so I don't have to think about the rest of our dinners, the Sephora VIB sale starts on Friday, lots of fun blog posts in the works, that the time change wasn't near as bad as I thought it was going to be with the baby, and seeing my girls tomorrow night for our Junior League meeting.

What are you excited for this week? Have a great Monday!

  1. It looks like y'all had a great weekend! I was surprised the puppy let me sleep until 6 a.m. on Saturday (usually he's up between 3 and 4) and was excited that he might let me sleep in on Sunday. Nope. Rory pushing on my bladder woke me up at like 4 a.m. which woke the dogs up and I was so restless that I couldn't get back to sleep even after the dogs were fed and went potty.

    I seriously cannot wait for Vanderpump Rules tonight! Jesse would probably never admit this, but he definitely watches this show with me haha.

  2. Yay for fun weekends and good doctor appointments! Sounds like you have lots of exciting stuff going on this week. I know I for one will be so glad when this election is over. I am sooooo sick of hearing political ads and all the election talk. That recipe looks amazing, so just pinned it! Have a great week!

  4. Sounds like a great weekend! Glad Hadley is doing so well and that 4 month sleep regression is no joke! Hope it passes quickly. That 2nd picture of Brady front and center might be my favorite picture ever of him. He looks so happy being right in the middle of the family picture. Sweet pup :)

  9. Sounds like you totally have a lot to be smiling about, I'm with you on wanting this election to just be over with! I know tomorrow is going to be super annoying with it being covered basically everywhere, but after that we're home free for another 4 years!

  23. I use Amazon prime to buy Oreo's dog food as well and I know our mail lady hates me for it. But it's just SO convenient! And cheaper than buying it in store!

    So glad you are having a great weekend, girl! Sounds like it has been off to a great start! :)

  24. Sounds like a great weekend! The weather certainly has been killer!! Yay for cheerful Monday's! :) Last year was a struggle with the time change but this year I made strong efforts to keep R awake late so she wasn't up too early and so far that's kept us on track! The baby didn't change at all. He just doesn't sleep either way! Ha!
