I had a really low key, but fun & productive weekend. Friday night I headed over after work to a local mexican restaurant to celebrate one of my friend’s second pregnancies. Rachel & Michelle organized a small group of Charlotte girls for a diapers & wipes shower for Ashley. Ashley is due just two weeks before me! It was surprise for Ashley & her face when she walked into the restaurant was classic. It was a really great night out. The only thing I missed was a big fat margarita.
Saturday REF slept in, which is something that he NEVER does. He’s been trying to get over a cold that has been hanging on for about 2 weeks now. He clearly needed the sleep. After our slow start to the morning, we ran a few errands. One of those errands was to The Container Store. A few weeks ago we had the folks at the Container Store sketch out a closet design for the baby’s room & Saturday we pulled the trigger. It will look something like this:
It is being installed on Wednesday & I could not be happier. REF & I were laughing that our lives have become so dull that we are excited about a closet system (one that isn’t even for us), but this is where life has taken us.
Later that evening we decided to go see Silver Linings Playbook. Something I’m not sure I’ve shared on here yet is that REF & I love to go to the movies. It’s always been a fun date night for us. I realize we don’t have many of these spontaneous movie nights left so even though we were both tired we stood in line for the movie.
If you haven’t seen this movie, do. I absolutely loved it. I know I’m emotional because of pregnancy hormones, but I was laughing & crying during this whole thing. I don’t normally like Bradley Cooper, but he was amazing. Jennifer Lawrence was perfect. Robert De Niro & Jacki Weaver played their roles spot on. Take the time to see this one in theater if you can.
After the movie we decided to get a bite to eat at the Mellow Mushroom across from the theater. We never go eat out late anymore (9:30), but again…we’re trying to soak it all in. We were pleasantly surprised that they had live music & it ended up being a really nice evening out.
Sunday morning, we did early church, breakfast, and napped. After our naps we hung some new blinds in the baby’s room, our bedroom/bathroom. I then decided that I needed to wash/iron our curtains and both of the bathroom shower curtains. I guess we can attribute that to “nesting”, but who really knows. I’m pleased with the new blinds in our bedroom & I think they look really fresh in the baby’s room, especially with the curtains we got for her.
What did you do this weekend?
