It was cold. It was rainy. It was magnificent!
We’ve had such good weather lately, that I’ve found myself in them streets from dawn to dusk. By the end of the weekend I’m usually exhausted, Regan is exhausted and my high mileage vehicle is exhausted. So when I heard about the rainy weather we were having, I got excited. We would, gasp, stay in for most of the weekend!
Saturday morning after weigh in, we headed to our favorite store- Trader Joe’s. I got a few of our favorites and walked out only 15 dollars lighter.
In the afternoon we headed to the other ends of the earth to meet up with one of my mommy friends for some fun in the pool. Regan loves baths so much, I just knew she would love the swimming pool, and I was right. She was so happy and I hate that I didn’t have my flip camera with me to catch it on film.
We only stayed in for about 45 minutes, but we had a blast. I let her lie on her back and kick, lie on her front like superman and I even dunked her a couple of times. She never made a single sound of protest. I can’t wait to get her in a real deal swim classes.
For dinner, I decided to make a taste of home. “Cincinnati-style” chili was on the menu. They were sampling the recipe at Publix and I just knew I had to make it. It tasted just like Skyline Chili! Wait, it was actually better because I knew exactly what the ingredients were and the quality of meat.
Normally when I eat skyline I get the coney dogs. This time, however, I put it over some spaghetti. Mmmmmm mmmmm! I served it with a cabernet and I promise you I couldn’t have been any happier.
Sunday morning, I made us breakfast and planned for a lazy day. Baby wasn’t really feeling breakfast, so I let her play for a while. When I saw her giving me the “I’m sleepy” queue, I scooped her up and we got in my bed. We snuggled while she
snored like an ogre slept like an angel. Eventually I dozed off too. We were cuddled in bed two hours later. It was the best!
After skypeing with my mom for two hours (!!!) I decided we had to run a couple of errands. It’s just too much on me to get things done in that 90 minute window between getting off work and daycare closing. So I bundled baby up and we were out.
The end of the day found us once again in my bed. She played with toys while I blogged and watched television.
This week, namely tomorrow, is a pretty big week for me at the Plantation. I could use all forms of prayer, positive thoughts and spirit fingers.
How was your weekend?
