our weekend

This weekend was one of those great weekends where Justin and I were able to spend a lot of time together relaxing.  We also were very productive.  Relaxing and productivity....weekend perfection in my book! (Sorry for being a bad blogger and slacking on pictures...)


-Dinner out with my parents and little brother.  He was in from school and I was happy to see him!

-TJ Maxx trip where we found the perfect lamp for the nursery.  (Justin actually spotted it--go hubby!)

-Home Depot trip with Justin to get much-needed hardware items for hanging things in the nursery.
-Couch time

Saturday a.k.a. "Baby Date"

*Justin decided that this past Saturday was a "Baby Date" because we had lots of things to do that revolved all around Adeline (yes, she's stealing the show already ;)*

-My first experience at IHOP (Justin loves the place!)...the traditional French Toast hit the spot! I received my first crazy stranger attention.  As I walked in the door, the ladies went crazy over my "cute bump"...oohing and ahhing.  It didn't stop until we left.  So funny.

-We had our "Basic Baby Care Course" at the hospital.  Some good stuff.  But we both decided that all-in-all it was pretty boring.  The breastfeeding class kept our attention a lot more...much more informational.

-Our hospital tour followed right after.  (Not gonna lie...seeing the actual delivery room made me nervous.  I'm still going with the "what you don't know won't hurt you" motto.  I can remain naive for a few more weeks, right?)  The tour was good.  We feel great about the hospital.  Their security system for newborns really impressed us.

-Wendy's stop because this pregnant girl is always hungry.

-Hobby Lobby stop to get mirrors I just had  to have for the nursery...but we ended up not even using them.  Now I have to take them back.  Grr my indecisiveness and impatience.

-Home to relax for a bit and then we worked for a long time on the nursery.  So fun...but definitely took patience.  Let's just say my husband holds me together when I often want to fall apart over silly things...such as the curtain rod not looking just right.  (We are still placing a few finishing touches and then I will let y'all see it!)

-I actually cooked dinner--Fettuccine Alfredo with Grilled Chicken--it was Justin's "reward" from me for working so hard on the nursery.  Food works every time. :)



-Lunch after at Arby's with our families

-I organized my new coupon binder (more to come on that).

-Justin worked outside while I went to the grocery.

-I took my first attempt at freezer cooking (more to come on that, too).

-Dinner at home

-Decorated the house for Fall

-We ended the evening playing Yahtzee (Justin had never played!) and relaxing.

That's it in an nutshell.  It was one of those great weekends that makes a Monday morning even more difficult! How was your weekend?

Pin It!


  1. wow girl, you were busy!!
    first, how have you never been to ihop?!?!?! YOu MUST go back and get STUFFED french toast. It's the best thing that ever happened. For real.
    I can't wait to see the nursery! It sounds like you guys worked really hard on it! Your baby is coming SOON...I can't believe how far you are. Your pregnancy has gone by really fast to me. Which is weird because I've been pregnant the whole time you have, but I just feel like you can't already be that far haha!

  2. don't worry about the labor and delivery...honestly, it was a breeze! I don't have one complaint.

  3. OOoh can't wait to see the nursery! And I love playing board games with the hubs - we don't do it nearly as often as we used to (actually, zero times since Liam was born) BUT we should start again bc it's fun!

  4. Oh Cait, what a lovely weekend! Can't wait to see the nursery!

  5. your weekend sounded so nice! i can't believe you had never been to ihop?! haha! it's yummy. we love french toast! i bet that was a little scary seeing the hospital tour. i hope i get to decorate for fall this weekend! :)

  6. What a busy weekend! I can't wait to see the nursery- I know it's going to be beautiful. Try not to worry too much about l&d. Like Emily said, it really isn't that bad and you will forget all about it once you are holding that precious baby girl! :)

  7. I went by the same moto! I figured that one way or another my baby girl was going to come out- so I didn't need to know all the details about how!

  8. IHOP is yummy for sure :) I'm glad you had such a great weekend!

  9. WOW!! I am so impressed (and jealous) with how PRODUCTIVE you have been esp for being as far along as you are!! I can't wait to hear more about your "couponing"-- I am trying to get a little more organized with this. And I'm excited about hearing more about your feezing meals (I hear this is something great to do pre-baby) :)
    You look great by the way :)


Thanks for stopping by! Your support and insight encourage and inspire me! I would love to hear your thoughts.
