The Weekend

I haven't done a weekend recap in for-ev-er! Partly because our weekends consist of nothing exciting right now (love it) and partly because Nick has had a few weeks of his Sunday night hockey playing-beer drinking off, and I always feel like a jerk blogging when we could be hanging out instead. But lucky for you guys, hockey resumed tonight and therefore you're getting this oh-so-exciting weekend recap...


The fun started back on Thursday when we took a trip to the vet for Brady who has a double ear infection. I freaking HATE taking him to the vet during the week with the baby - let me just paint a picture of that for you. Me holding on to my 16 pound (ish?) baby while I've got an 85 pound dog that is OMG I'M OUT OF THE HOUSE, NEW PEOPLE EVERYWHERE, THIS IS SO EXCITING straining on the leash. And then I've got the diaper bag and I'm trying to not let Brady mount people while I'm trying to pay and the baby is whining to get out of my arms because she wants to pet all the dogs (which is the sweetest). And just when we leave and I think we're home free, Brady decides he actually does not want to go home and lays his body down in the parking lot and refuses to move. (It's also raining out). I was literally trying all the bribes in the book- peanut butter, treats, squirrels- but no budging from him, he would.not.move. It finally required an older man coming out of the vet laughing his head off saying he's never seen anything like that! to help me get the dog up and into the car. No kidding. It was quite an experience, but looking back now (that I'm home and dry), it's kind of hilarious.

Thankfully the rest of the weekend was quite low key! So low key that I didn't put on makeup ONCE. We got pizza on Friday night and I was so super happy when I realized that season 3 of Grace & Frankie was on Netflix. That show saved me right after Hadley was born and I was experiencing all the emotions because it is the funniest thing ever. 

Saturday was a beautiful day. After we went to the gym, Nick spent it outside cleaning up sticks and who knows what else, while we so kindly supervised and made him take pictures of us. That night we went over to our friends house - that have an almost 4 year old and six week old little girls - for burgers on the grill. Saturday nights look so different now with dinner at 5pm and bedtimes at 8pm, but I literally would not have them any other way. 


And on Sunday, I was weirdly productive. Cleaned the entire house, meal planned and made my grocery list for the week, broke in our new JOGGING STROLLER on a run in the neighborhood, and took Hadley to Nick's hockey game. She loved it and I have a feeling there will be lots more of those in our future.


I've got a clean house, fresh sheets, and a stocked fridge - bring it on Monday!

  1. I love Brady. I swear he will be a puppy forever; you're little handful. Hadley just balances him out!

  3. Wow I was laughing at that Brady story (the rain part definitely would have sucked a lot though). I'm glad someone helped you out--I can imagine I would have been freaking out too in the moment. The rest of the weekend sounds awesome :)

  9. Ahhhh a jogging stroller! Can't wait to hear how you like it. And awwww poor Brady, the struggle is real balancing a baby and a stubborn dog at the vet. But you're right, looking back it's always a hilarious story. Hope his ears feel better soon <3

  11. Jealous of your clean house! I had a productive Sunday, but somehow cleaning slipped the list. ;) I'm laughing about Brady at the vet - we have the opposite problem with Finn. I usually have to pick him up out of the car just to go in! Glad you guys are well and loving life!

  12. Such a great weekend! I did not spend nearly enough time on my house this weekend which makes for a not very productive Monday morning! That vet situation - what a mental image! Glad it turned out okay. Happy Monday!

  14. I am dying over the vet story because I had a similar experience when I took Mac to get groomed when Zoe was a tiny little thing. Except, I had her in her infant carrier in the freezing cold and Mac is a tiny little guy that likes to escape his leash after wrapping it around a tree several times. The vet tech had to come take Zoe from me and put her in my car. She was like...we have all been here. Dont feel bad. Grace and Frankie is one of my favorites!!! I am still watching season 3, I cruised right through the first two when I was pregnant. Love them!!!!

  15. What a wonderful weekend - probably minus the vet debacle, although it sure does give you a good, funny story to tell!! Hope you have a great week :)

  17. Oh lady - your trip to the vet...I've been having nightmares about! lol we have two 80 lbs Dobermans and I told my husband, once the baby is born, there is NO WAY I can take them by myself so vet appts are going to have to be scheduled around his free time lol! xx

  18. Oh my goodness, that whole vet experience sounds awful! I'm glad that man was able to help you - ahhh! Dogs are crazy! The rest of the weekend sounds great, I need to see that Grace and Frankie show!
