Did you have a good weekend? Mine was really good! Friday night Brian and I just hung out and watched a (new to us) show on Hulu called Chicago PD. We are giving it 4 episodes to reel us in and so far it isn’t too bad! We had a summer meal of BBQ hamburgers and fresh Greek salad for dinner which was delicious. We both went to bed early though because Brian had to work on Saturday and my sister and I were getting up bright and early to celebrate Mother’s Day with our momma. We decided to do it a day early because we really wanted to hit up the farmer’s market which only runs on Saturdays.
We didn’t give her any hints as to what we had planned just that she had plans from 8:30 am until 2 pm and to meet at my sister’s house in the morning.
Our first stop was Starbucks for drinks, and then we hit up the farmer’s market for the first time this season. A lot of the crops weren’t in yet so there wasn’t a whole lot of vegetables but there were still tons of vendors and Windy scored some ah-mazing coconut cashew butter. Since our brunch location didn’t open for another hour we decided to hit up Value Village and browse. We ended up going a bit nuts on baby clothes and pretty much bought Baby B his baby wardrobe including adorable blue suede moccasins! While there, we received a random act of kindness when a lady saw how much baby stuff we were buying and she hands us her 30% off coupon to use! Thank you karma for coming back to me 🙂 We ended our Mother’s Day morning with brunch at a local restaurant.
The next day while out running errands Brian treated me to a soon-to-be Mother’s Day lunch. We then had a relaxing rest of the day reading and chilling with our puppy. Mika is doing a lot better this week and we finally have her insulin levels evened out! She can now get up and down the front stairs without any assistance (it’s about 8 stairs) and overall she seems to be in a lot better spirits than two weeks ago.
In baby bump news, Brian and I had a little game going with Baby B last night! Brian would either tap his fingers and pat my stomach to a beat or drag his fingers across my belly and if we waited and watched we could see Baby B react and move my whole stomach with his wiggling! It was such a neat experience and of course Brian let him punch him in the face a few times too just to feel close to him 🙂 We also figured out that Baby B loves it when Brian hums to him (success judged by how fast he hits him in the face once he starts). Already he has such a little personality in there!
Tell me: how was your Mother’s Day weekend?
