Happy Monday, all! Who else is in a post holiday daze? (I wanted to write “holi-daze” there, but I don’t think I’m cool enough for that.) Personally, my cup of coffee is THIS big today, and I know it won’t be my last!! This weekend was definitely a fun one, even though we didn’t do anything too crazy. Anyway, here are the highlights from our weekend!
Saturday was filled with running around to find another Craigslist find, followed by Bobby’s Burger Palace. We used to live really close to one before we moved, so when we realized we were in the area we knew we had to go. I was too hungry to take a picture, but if you go, do yourself a favor and get both sweet potato and regular fries and a Crunch Burger (American cheese and [Lay’s, I think] potato chips).
We also hit up our all time favorite grocery store near our old house and I was overjoyed. I went there at least twice a week since they are a small, family owned and run Italian grocery store with the BEST quality and prices I’ve ever seen. We were tehre so often, all the cashiers knew me and were the first to ask me if I was pregnant. (Livotti’s if you’re in the Matawan/Aberdeen area. They pull mozzarella on site and make soup, salads, and sausages fresh! So good.) The best. Anyway, we picked up a dinner of homemade broccoli rabe and roasted pepper chicken sausage patties, fresh buns, and corn.
Before dinner we played outside on his Power Wheels and sat in the grass. Obviously, very interesting stuff.
Ryan was asleep by 7 on Saturday and I spent the majority of the night comforting our scaredy dog who was whining, shaking, and scratching on everything. Eventually I sat in our tiny bathroom for about two hours playing music loudly and trying to calm him.
Sunday was filled with errands and lots of coffee thanks to Cooper keeping me up until 1 and Ryan waking me at 6:30.. Errands included a trip to Harbor Freight where daddy was boring and Ryan and I talked colors and shapes.
Later after a failed nap, we took to the great outdoors (a.k.a our backyard) with Ryan’s walker to do some more walking work. Obviously he wasn’t too interested once Alex brought out his Power Wheels.
But the number one “Best of the Weekend” event was definitely Ryan FINALLY taking his first step!! Alex saw the actual first on, and then I saw a second step when he was holding on to the cabinets and wanted to go after Cooper. No pictures, but it was definitely exciting!!
