This Weekend I....

Linking up with Syndal and Sar today, grab the button and link up!
This weekend I relaxed on Friday night, it was a loooong day at work. I treated myself to a bath and then layed in bed watching my baby girl dance/roll/squirm around in my belly. It's so fascinating to me to watch her in there. I always wonder what she's up to.
This weekend I was not a "hunter's widow" but pretty much could've been. Husband had to work all.weekend.long. It stinks since we have some stuff we want to get done, but I know he dislikes working as much as he is right now even more than I dislike it. It's hard for me not get frustrated that we don't have any time together, but here's to hoping once baby is here we'll have some time (even if it is feeding, changing diapers and watching her sleep)!
This weekend I got together with my good friends Megan and Jen to get pedicures and snag some froyo on Saturday. It was a lot of fun and it was great to see Jen since she travels so much for work we hardly ever see her. Here's a picture of us (excuse the mess that is surrounding us...). More on this meet-up in a later post :)
Me, Megan and Jen
This weekend I met up with my s-i-l and niece for a second round of froyo (yep, that's twice in 1 day...I'm eating for 2 so the 2nd round was for Baby Girl - right?). My favorite froyo place was having a Girl's Night on Saturday where they had different vendors set-up for you to shop at. My s-i-l and I were roped into buying Norwex cleaning supplies. Pretty sad how excited I am to use these cleaning cloths (sign I'm getting old).
This weekend I finished up a lot of projects I had going on (post on my many Pinterest projects coming soon). It feels great to finally be seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Nursery is pretty much finished, we just need to hang 2 pictures on the wall (hopefully tonight!) and then I can take pictures of the whole thing to share here.
Here's a sneak peak of the nursery I posted on Instagram, in case you missed it. Me and the pups relaxing and waiting for Baby Girl to arrive :) They're pretty excited about her (especially Oscar!)
This weekend I packed lots of stuff for me and baby to bring to the hospital. Husband is on his own in the packing department. He doesn't like to pack anything early (not even when we go on vacation, kind of drives me crazy sometimes). Me and baby are pretty much ready to go except the stuff that I can't pack yet. The puppy bag has been packed for about a week so they're all ready for their stay at grandma's house. It's finally sinking in that this baby really can come any day now! :)
This weekend I spent way too much money on candles! Bath and Bodyworks was having a sale and I had $10 off $30 coupon plus I got a coupon in the mail for Yankee Candle so naturally I had to go and buy candles at both places ;) I figured Christmas is coming (plus a gazillion birthdays) so I plan to use some of the stuff I got as presents/stocking stuffers for some peeps.
This weekend I slept in majorly on Saturday. It felt great and I think it was well-deserved. Sleep has been rare the last few weeks, so it was nice to not have much to do in the morning and take advantage of all the sleep I could possibly get. However, this morning I woke up at 3 and could not fall back asleep. I will be a tired girl tonight!
This weekend I chuckled at all of my friends' status updates on Facebook yesterday. It seems that babies don't understand the concept of daylight savings time. I know I will never probably be able to laugh about this again in the future, but it was pretty comical seeing the same post over and over again complaining about babies (or sometimes animals) not understanding to sleep in. Karma, please be nice to me in a year :)
I hope this day goes by fast so I can go home and relax finish the nursery so I can post the pics (finally!)
Happy Monday!


  1. Froyo twice in one day?! I am envious of your life! Plus, you're about to have a sweet baby girl, which is going to be glorious! Can't wait to see her (and I'm sure you're crazy excited as well)!

    Happy Monday, Becky! Thanks for linking up!

  2. Froyo, sleeping in, and candles, sounds perfect

  3. Fun weekend!You are getting SO close to baby time. Can you believe it?! We kept my daughter up an hour late on Sat night to combat Daylight Savings and it worked. Whew! :)

  4. But Froyo is, like, good for you, because it's yogurt. Soooo, you were just catching up on your servings of dairy! Totally validated! :)
