Weekend Recap

It's over.

Man, why does it have to be over?

I guess the only thing good about it being over is that we are one day further in the dreaded Shred and one day closer to the end. Today actually delivered temperatures well above freezing and a nice, long walk with the jogger. And Mondays? Means swim days and Chipotle for dinner. It's sort of our Monday tradition. At least for the next three until they end.

This weekend, we were social and fun and those people who actually have adult conversation while dressed nicely and sipping libations. More weekend thoughts and facts:
  • Ray tried haggis for the first time ever. And liked it enough to eat a decent portion.
  • We brought B to our friends' house and put him down to sleep in their bedroom. When we left four hours later, he transferred just fine into his crib (until he woke 3 hours later for milk). 
  • I forgot to breastfeed many times this weekend. B is just such a mover now and when he does feed, he's so distracted and ready to get up and move about his toys. I don't think I'll be feeding much past a year.
  • We sipped both Johnny Walker Blue Label & Glenmorangie Signet and had fun doing it.
  • Ate traditional Scottish food at our first Burns Supper, served by our new neighborhood friends. 
  • Was reminded of my Scottish roommates I lived with for about 4 years before marrying.
  • Went to both Whole Foods & Costco and left with tofu from both places {B loves his tofu}.
  • Consumed far too many Costco samples.
  • B was finally allowed in the fridge for a full inspection. He has been bolting across the floor every time I open it for anything ever since he learned to crawl. Every day, I shut him out with fury. This weekend, we turned it off for a few and let him have at it. He took out avocado because he loves his avocado.
  • Bought a new basket for our living room from World Market. Those sneaky punks sent us a 49% off coupon and wouldn't allow us to use on the basket, but bought it anyway. They won at their own game. We placed it on the right side of the TV. The basket on left side of the console is from Target.
  • Put B in his first pair of solid shoes and he tried desperately to shake them off. Keens, naturally. We're kind of hippies. He still doesn't quite fill out a size 4. Shrimp baby.
  • Watched my husband be blindfolded and hit a man wearing a kilt with a newspaper (also see notes about Johnny Walker, Glenmorangie & Scottish dinner). Fun fact: my former roommate wore a kilt to our wedding.
  • Made a reservation to take B to hibachi this week.
  • Sat on Molly's couch at Costco.
So much more, of course. Photos from some of the above vignettes:

I love his shoes!
That game with the news paper looks hilarious. What a way to get to know your neighbors! Haha
Did being buff from the shred help him win the game? :(
Yay for Molly's couch!

Hagis? Gross. I have not had the courage or the desire, but my hat is off for adventurous eating!

His shoes are adorable. Seriously.

Fret not mama, my 19 monther is still in size four shoe :)

Random fact: I have never had tofu. Or haggis.

The pic of him in the fridge is ADORABLE!!! There are times I let Layton play in the fridge as well...he gets so mad at me when I close it on him that I figure if he thinks he wins the battle every once in awhile it will be good for every one involved.

So glad you got to have some fun with is good to have that change of pace and feel like a "normal" person every once in awhile.

I forgot to ask you about the Shred! You weren't crying in pain when we spoke, though that's still not enough to convince me to do it. ha! :)

I love B. In the fridge, on the floor, on the couch. Too cute.

And Ray looks really into flogging that guy. *scary*.
