WARM Weekending

Another weekend in the books and can you believe this is the end of January? And that Hadley is going to be SEVEN months old on Wednesday? I'm always kind of happy when January and February (and March honestly) fly by, because they are not my favorite. I'm over the cold and gray days and ready for spring. Especially because I was at Old Navy last week and they have ALL the cute spring things.

However, God smiled down on my poor whiney sick of winter butt this weekend though and gave us a 60 degree, pure sunny day on Saturday! I can't even tell you how good that was for my soul. And my house because I love a good cleaning sesh when I can crank open the windows (and the baby takes a nice long nap).

So the weekend. Friday's are my becoming my new favorite. I try and schedule nothing on that day and Hadley and I chill in our PJs until after lunch when we finally get out of the house to usually stock up on food for the weekend or do a little fun shopping. This Friday we hit up Costco for formula (the best prices), tons of avocado because my avocado toast obsession is still going strong, and hydrangeas.


That night we went out to dinner with friends of ours that are expecting their second baby in the next 5 weeks! So exciting. Let's just say dinners are getting a little trickier with Hadley. No longer will she just happily sit in her car seat, now she's wants to be moving moving moving and grabbing onto things like knives and glasses of beer. I seriously didn't even taste the food I was eating, I was so distracted by her. And that's a shame because I had these chicken and waffles (stolen picture from the summer) and they are so good. So not good for the waistline, but that's what the gym on Saturday morning is for.


Saturday was beyond amazing. We didn't even do anything that exciting, but let me tell you, sixty degrees in the middle of the winter makes for the best day ever. After we hit up the gym, Hadley napped and we cleaned the house and then once she woke up, we booked it outside. We went on a family walk around the neighborhood - Brady was in heaven and we were loving watching how happy Hadley was sitting in her stroller like a big girl for the first time!

That afternoon we hit up Hobby Lobby and Target for my new obsession - making my own bows. It's still a work in progress, but weirdly addicting. There is something calming about using your hands and actually making something. Nick made breakfast tacos while I worked away during nap time - best husband award - and then after Hadley went to bed, I took the longest shower, face masked myself (this one is my recent fave) and watched Parent Trap while Nick went to hockey. Such a good family day.


And Sunday was so uninteresting that I won't even bother with it. Hope you guys had as great of a weekend as we did!

  3. What a fun little weekend! The low-key, seemingly uninteresting ones are my favorite! I totally took a long, hot shower after the boys went to bed Saturday night and went to bed early; the best! {And yes to the Costco prices on formula -- totally where we buy, too!}

  5. It was SIXTY SEVEN here on Saturday. I have no words for how happy it made me! And thank goodness because it's back to being grey and gloomy and cold today. Can we always have a winter weather break? I totally feel you on taking the littles out to eat. Not as much fun these days! We went with a huuuge group to lunch yesterday and I wanted to cry the whole time. And it took almost two hours! I think we are done with that for a while, lol!

  6. I AM SO JEALOUS OF YOUR TEMPS! We got up close to 40, and it was warm enough for a run outside, but no sun. BOO. Us Midwesterners take what we can get though, right? ;-) Girl, dinners out with kiddos get so hard! Fun, but hard. I want to see some of these bows you are making!
