This weekend, like all others, seemed to just fly by. It was a pretty busy weekend for all of us, but a lot was accomplished and it was definitely a good one! Let’s jump right into it with some link ups to Meg, Biana, and Ashley today!
Friday for work we filmed a safety/active living video. It was great..minus the humidity. Of course we filmed the scene that they asked me to be in, 3 hours of 100% humidity in my hair later. I can’t wait to see how cute those parts of the promo video look…note the sarcasm. The kids we worked with were just adorable, and it was a lot of work, but fun. I love having a job that gets me out and about doing different things. Due to another week of funky hours, I was able to head home once the shoot wrapped around 1pm, and I enjoyed a HOT walk outside with little man and my parents. The rest of the night we hung out at home, until I left to meet my FUTURE sister in law for dinner and drinks. It is still so crazy to realize a friend I have known since high school is the one ending up as my sister in law. It was a fun dinner of wedding talk, dress talk, and family talk. I am grateful she is the girl Jeff has brought in to the forever family 🙂
Saturday, we had a home showing so we were up and out pretty early. We ran to Old Navy to grab some goods for later in the afternoon, and then me and the little man went for a run in town around my parent’s neighborhood. My parents moved my brothers things down to Iowa over the weekend (and retrieved my hijacked work computer–yay!), so I was at their place to let the dog out for a bit, and my friend Ally was up from the cities visiting, so we grabbed lunch, sat by Jackson in his kiddie pool, and enjoyed chatting. Of course between the dog and a baby I seriously felt like ‘that mom’ who was half distracted the whole time. Mom problems, for real. To all of my friends who don’t have a clingy baby glued to them 24 hours a day..I apologize!
Saturday afternoon, we met up with my favorite girl Amanda for some one year/family pictures. And, Jackson was a grouch, just like the last time. Regardless, the girl is a rockstar and I am already swooning over the sneak peak images she sent me. I am getting as many casual sessions in that I can before the girl makes it big and is booked solid, she is so talented! Amanda Baloun Photography
is getting better and better, and I am so happy to have this girl capturing the special moments in our lives.
A teeny sneak preview, because I couldn’t resist!
Sunday Mike went fishing and me and the babe lazed around half of the morning. I had been debating getting Jackson a My First Chair from Pottery Barn, and I got an email saying they were all on sale, plus I had a 10% off code. To top it off, the navy color
only (which is the one I wanted) was marked down to $30
, from what is normally $89. That is the biggest markdown on them I have ever seen.
I pulled the trigger without blinking. And now am so excited for it to arrive!
After eating some chocolate chip pancakes and watching some cartoons, we headed to Target for our weekly grocery and errands run. We followed that up with swinging by for a visit with my sister, where baby napped away on the couch while we chatted and watched Say Yes to the Dress. Two (three including my sister!) of my favorite things.
We eventually headed home, had some lunch, and went for a super long walk around our neighborhood and to the gas station so I could cool off with an iced coffee on the last half mile home while baby took another long snooze.
We finished off the evening with lasagna, a bath for baby due to making a mess with said lasagna, chocolate banana smoothies, and checking a few work e-mails. It was a busy weekend, but a lot was accomplished and we are ready to go with this week! I have big plans, mostly including finalizing the details on my little mans first birthday and getting going with planning on my sister in laws baby shower! Life keeps happening, and I swear I can barely keep up!
What did everyone else do this weekend??
