On Mondays, we recap the weekend. Doesn’t everyone?
This weekend was pretty much exactly what I needed. I had tons of time with my little family and a great Mother’s Day. What else could I want?
Saturday we did our typical routine – Weight Watchers (I went up .2, but it’s such a small amount I’m not really worried about it), a quick trip to Trader Joe’s for some fun new snacks (and Chris stopped me from buying cookie butter – I was SO tempted but we totally don’t need that in the house), and swim lessons – this time it was my turn. My new swimsuit came in just in time, and I’m so much more comfortable now that I have one that fits right. It’s a bra-sized tankini, and I love it. I’m planning on sharing some tips for swimsuits for the well endowed later this week.
I’m also co-hosting A Beautiful Exchange‘s new “Beautiful Moments” sharefest today, so peek over when you get a moment to see what Beautiful Moment I loved this week (I’ll add the link once it’s up!), then share yours with the hashtag (#ABEbeautifulmoments).
The rest of Saturday was spent playing with our little bug and a delicious dinner of Apricot-Glazed Pork Tenderloin…totally have to get you guys that recipe soon!
Sunday morning Abbie slept in (7am!) and she and Chris insisted on giving me my mother’s day gift right away – this personalized notebook in green with Abbie’s picture and a note inside…perfect. Chris then surprised me by suggesting we head out to Amphora for breakfast, and we had an awesome little family breakfast before coming home and heading to the playground.
After that, I got some alone time – my first pedicure of the year and Starbucks. At this point, the day was only half over and pretty much perfect.
Abbie continued to be a doll the rest of the day (which she made up for this morning when she was super-cranky), and Chris and I watched the season finale of Revenge at 10… OMG, craziness. Anyone else watch Revenge? I can’t wait to see what happens next season now!
Happy belated Mother’s Day!
Sounds like you had an amazing weekend! I really wanted to get a pedicure but never got around to it. I hope to get one this week. My feet really need it!
Thanks – and yes, get one. I feel SO much better!
So glad you had a good weekend and a happy mother’s day! That breakfast looks absolutely DELICIOUS! 🙂
It was! Especially since I didn’t have to clean it up!
Fun weekend! Ummm yes to Revenge. I was kinda getting over the show for a while, but now I’ll just have to continue watching next season…
The craziness. So much going on!
what an awesome weekend and sounds like a perfect mother’s day!! Yay for pedicures and Starbucks that sounds heavenly!
Thanks – hope you had a great one too!
Sounds like a great Mother’s Day!! 🙂
