Weekend Recap

Wow, I don’t even know when the last time I did a recap of our weekend. This weekend really wasn’t anything special, but I’m trying to get back into the swing of things. Gotta start somewhere – right?

Thank the sweet Lord that I’m able to work from home these days, because I ended up working from home on Friday. I woke up and got partially ready and then heard the horrible road conditions that we had from the snow storm that had been going for 12 hours. My boss gave me the ok to work from home. Bailey got to stay home, too so we didn’t have to venture out into the nasty snowy roads. Chris worked lunch and that evening, so it was just Bailey and I. I was able to get quite a bit done before she woke up for the day and Chris left for work, during her naps and while she watched cartoons and read books.

my sweet baby girl - love her so much!
That evening was pretty low-key. I was starting to feel a little under the weather and after taking a bath (after B was down for the night), I ended up falling asleep in bed (around 9pm).  I’m so old!
I'm too cheap to pay $1.99 to have "picibooth" removed from my photos - so there you have it

I woke up bright and early and got quite a bit of cleaning done that I should have done Friday night. We had a birthday party at noon in Minnetonka. Bailey had lots of fun playing at Cambrie’s 4th birthday party! Bailey went down the slide by herself for the first time and we had a lot of fun watching her play with the big kids (and hovered constantly to make sure she didn’t get knocked over ;)) We hit up Popeye’s on the way home since we were “in the area”. We are sooo obsessed with this place. It’s our go-to when we visit Florida and now there’s some locations in MN. We were supposed to get one in Savage last spring, but something happened and we didn’t. I think it’s kind of a good thing – we would eat it way too often if it was down the street! Chris went to work Saturday evening and B and I hung out at home. I did a Zumba workout (really need to get back on track with those!!) and Bailey played in her little kitchen. Poor little peanut is teething hardcore, so there were quite a few snuggles mixed in, too J


      These 2 are bound to be causing trouble at the cabin this summer - I can't wait!!

I’ve hardly been to the grocery store since we’ve been back from Florida. Chris has gone the few times that we needed to since the weather has been horrible and I don’t like to bring Bailey out in it if I can avoid it, plus we save money when Chris shops J I’m consider using Coborns Delivers – does anyone have experience with this? There’s a delivery fee, but I feel like me not going to the store will reduce the amount of crap I get distracted with and will probably save us money.

We hit up Costco and got a ton of fruit and veggies and then Target for some other essentials. I felt pretty proud when I got home and we had bought so many fruits and veggies that we didn’t have enough room in our 2 big drawers for them all. I’m really trying to get back on track with working out and eating healthy. After lunch, I made up a veggie tray to keep in the fridge and prepped our smoothies for the week. I feel so ahead of the game right now! I also created a list of healthy sweet and salty snacks to hang on the fridge. I’m so guilty of grabbing bad food that’s readily available and making a meal of it. I want to stop this horrible habit I have and take the thinking out of the process of deciding what I want when I’m hungry. If you have any favorites or suggestions - let me know, looking for ideas!

lots of fruits and veggies and meal prep done!
Super random list of stuff, but I'm hoping it will help

Speaking of healthy…later that afternoon, we met up with my friend Sarah and her daughter Amelia at Smash Burger. I’d never been and I won’t be dying to go back. It was decent, but nothing that knocked my socks off. It was great to see Sarah and Amelia, though! We hadn’t seen them since Bailey’s birthday party and Amelia is growing so much. She’s 8 months old and is cute as can be. I could just kiss her little cheeks all day if I had her with me! I hope we’ll be able to hang out more this spring and summer and do fun stuff like go to the zoo or park.

Ahem, Once upon a time there was a naughty little monkey....
Oh, let's read Winnie the Pooh instead
Bailey didn't display her best "sharing" behavior. All of these toys/books are Amelia's...Bailey helped herself
Sunday nights are pretty slow around here. Just getting stuff ready for the week and squeezing in as much snuggle time as I can with Bailey before the week starts. I sure do miss her the most on Mondays. She brings so much joy to my life, more than I could have ever imagined!

Hope you all had a good weekend!! 


  1. It's so great to have you blogging again - I sure miss seeing Bailey's smiley face!! She's getting so big!! Crazy!!

    Sounds like a wonderful weekend. :)

  2. tons of fruit and veggies cut & prepped in the fridge helps a TON! way to go!!

    so happy you have the option to work from home on crappy days. i opted to keep avrie home from daycare on friday as i didn't need to have her and i out on the roads NOR did i have any work that NEEDED to be done on friday ;) win win!

    i use "photo grid" on my phone for photo collages- i think it's free!? i love it!

    glad you had a great and BUSY weekend!

  3. good idea to put a list of some healthy snack options on the fridge.
