Weekending


Ready for a shocker?
This weekend we ate, laid around and hung out with our baby and our friends.
I know, I know, you could never have guessed that! 

Wanna see pics?

Well then, it's your lucky day!


Friday night was pizza night at a new joint that played a part in our engagement weekend. I'll have to tell ya'll that story some day!


On Saturday, my freshman year roommate drove down from Charlotte with her 13 month old twin boys. We destroyed a local dining establishment and called in Brunch and then hit the zoo.

Whatever, the moms needed the mom time.

Next time we'll clearly hit the mall.
Or hire babysitters.

(I would like to state for the record that no, I am not pregnant, even though I look like I'm smuggling a bump in this photo. Perhaps the wind was blowing or perhaps it was the bottle of wine I had for dinner the night before)

Honestly, it amazes how much motherhood has brought back into my life as far as friendships goes. I met Christine for the first time when we were 17 years old and here we are a decade and a half later dragging our sons around a zoo so that we can chat about being stay at home moms to our holligans.

We sacrifice so much to be mothers and yet motherhood can bring us so much beyond being a caregiver.
Amen.

On Sunday, I was treated to a Mom Spa Day solo trip to Target, Whole Foods and Trader Joe's.


I don't know if that's really worth blogging about, but it felt like Heaven on Earth to me.

We spent the rest of the day being lazy and watching the Masters.
And, in case you've been wondering what our temporary apartment looks like, here ya go!
Warning: not for the OCD


Like the good wife that I am, I escaped all of the golf for an al fresco girl's dinner full of wine and cheese plates.


There is nothing better than a dinner that consists of carbs and cheese.

 Except maybe coming home to a sleeping baby and a husband doing the dishes.

 I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

  1. What a great weekend! That pizza looks very scrumptious. I have that exact same play yard. However, our daughter deemed it not needed when she broke a wall (didn't realize I gave birth the female hulk).

  2. Is it weird one reason I'm looking forward to having a baby is so I can get closer to my friends who have kids already? We've grown apart bc I've been kid less so I can't wait to rekindle our friendships. Looks like you guys had a great weekend!!
