Do you ever have a weekend where on Sunday night you feel happily tired, just sad enough to see the weekend go, but also excited for the week to start? That’s how I feel right now. It’s an odd mix of emotions, but after a nice, no plans weekend, it seems right. Anyway, I’m not going to write a novel about how content I feel in the world right now, and instead tell you that I’m linking up with Erin and Katie for this weeks Best of the Weekend.
On Friday, I turned around and saw this..
Yes, that is my one year old who somehow climbed into the tote that we keep all of his toys in. Just chillin, checking out all that is his.
Saturday I whined until Alex agreed to go out to breakfast. We went to our favorite pancake place (The Original Pancake House in Whippany, for all my New Jersians. They have gluten free, dairy free, and vegan options. But I just get good ol’ buttermilk.) and chowed down. I knew that we probably wouldn’t be getting lunch, so I tried to get some protein in my breakfast, and this was seriously so amazing.
Bacon, scrambled eggs, and 3 pancakes for me.
Apple pancake for the hubs. They make this crazy apple pancake that’s like, 4 inches thick and the size of a dinner plate and you have to wait 15-20 minutes for them to bake it. Alex is obsessed.
We decided to head down to Point Pleasant in the afternoon after Ryan skipped his morning nap. Thankfully he took a long one in the car! It ended up being a not so great idea, though, since it was still super hot at 530 and Ryan was not digging it. After hanging out in the AC of the arcades and giving Ryan his dinner, we went to the aquarium on the boardwalk – a sure bet with Ryan.
We stopped at Bobby’s Burger Palace on the way home because I was FOR SURE getting super hangry, and Ryan ate my pickle. He’s lucky he’s cute. I was going to take a picture of my dinner, but i inhaled it, so just imagine the most delicious burger and fries. Done.
Sunday was one of those days where you really don’t do too much, but you enjoy it so much. We had lunch with my MIL, then ran some errands, like the obligatory Target run.
A nap at home while I worked out and Alex did some car work, a long hike with Cooper, and a Chipotle dinner went unpictured, but sometimes a no phone Sunday is just the day you need to recover and enjoy your little family.
So what did you do this weekend?! Do you ever feel like you enjoy yourself more when you go “phone-free” or do you think it didn’t happen without a picture? Let me know in the comments!
