Happy Monday everyone! It is once again chilly and winter-like here in Minnesota, but that is okay! After tomorrow, the forecast for the foreseeable weeks is all in the 60’s and 70’s, and I am doing the biggest happy dance! Which probably looks silly at nearly 35 weeks pregnant, but I just don’t care. Spring is finally arriving for good, and I couldn’t be more thrilled!
Before diving in, remember to link up with Jenn and I tomorrow for Talk About It Tuesday! Share whatever is on your mind, and talk about it! We can’t wait to hear what is going on with you!
This weekend was pretty busy for us, but it was all fun stuff! Friday I did some work from home and ran errands with my mom and the little guy. I haven’t shopped with my mom in quite some time, and it was interesting to observe her figuring out that there is a reason I am able to book it in and out of Target in record time, every time. Jackson just isn’t the best shopping buddy as of lately, he would much rather run up and down the aisles than be required to ride in the cart! Friday evening was low-key, and we just hung around the house and relaxed.
Saturday, I attended a bridal shower for my soon to be sister in law. Her mom and sisters hosted, and it was a brunch shower, complete with mimosas (which I sadly had to pass on), egg bake, homemade muffins, and lots of fruit. It was all delicious, and I left stuffed. I am so surprised how in less than three years, there are SO many cool things you can buy for the home and kitchen. I definitely have a few things I have added to my shopping list for the new house that she received, some of them are just brilliant!
Saturday evening, Mike and I decided to take Jackson to run some errands, and we managed to make it through Target without any major meltdowns. Mike is not a fan of taking Jackson out to eat whatsoever, but I convinced him to head to Old Chicago for our favorite buffalo chicken pizza. And, of course, since it is a ‘custom’ order that isn’t on the menu, the new chef in back screwed up our order and it took forever to get our food. And forever feels more like eternity when even your cell phones are no longer entertaining to your toddler. Our waitress was just the sweetest though, apologized, and without us even saying anything, told us we wouldn’t be charged for the pizza. WIN. And, despite his supposed screw up, our pizza came out PERFECT and was one of the best we have gotten there in ages. So, a few minutes of Jackson meltdown waiting for our food ended up being totally worth it!
On Sunday, we headed out to the farm to celebrate Mike’s grandma’s 80th birthday. Fully equipped with fields, cows, and a Ranger for rides, Jackson was in heaven. He got to pet the cows for the first time, and to my surprise wasn’t scared at all.
He literally ‘frolicked’ in the fields as long as we would let him, chasing the dog, falling to his knees, just to giggle and get up to do it all over again. That sweet boy is happiest outside, that is no question.
Sunday evening, we ALL took naps, ate leftovers, and watched the season premier of Fear The Walking Dead. I must say, after last week’s The Walking Dead finale, this premier just didn’t feel all that exciting. It is always nice to end the weekend with a fun show though, and just kick up our feet and relax!
This week for work we have our big event that has been pretty time consuming for the past few months, and I am already counting down to Saturday when it is over. I keep telling myself that after this week, it is smooth sailing until baby comes! 🙂
