Gross weather aside, this weekend was pretty great! And I know next weekend will be so awesome since it’s a long weekend and Ryan’s birthday weekend! (Someone PLEASE tell em how I have a 1 year old?) With the next two weekends pretty busy with Ryan’s birthday and then his party, so we got a bunch of house and yardwork done and planned a bit, which for this party-planning-loving mama was definitely fun! Here are the weekend highlights from our weekend!
-Alex got a new truck!
Alex has been dying for an old diesel truck since we started dating so when we had a bit of money from our tax returns and this truck popped up on Craigslist, he couldn’t resist getting it. It HUGE, but automatic so I can drive it, and SUPER roomy inside. As a road trip family (when I was 8 weeks pregnant, we took a 27 hour road trip to Austin without stopping!) we can’t wait to get a trailer to hitch to it and go on our first road trip with Ryan this fall! As you can see, we had some fun at the DMV waiting for daddy to register the truck. (All I can say in regards to going to the DMV while starving at 11 on a Saturday is thank God I made Alex stop for coffee.)
First off, let me say pizza is my favorite food group, and I’ve had a huge aching hole in my heart the past year sans pizza. When we realized that where we bought the truck was near our all time favorite pizza place, I begged for a detour and was in pizza heaven. (Krispy Pizza in Old Bridge is THE BEST hands down for NJ locals. The name seems so stupid but you guys, I wouldn’t lie about pizza.)
-This kid who wasn’t very excited about the loud diesel.
He’s gotten more used to it (though he’s not a fan of idling,) but the first trip in the truck (an hour+ home) was a ROUGH RIDE of screaming. We pulled to the side of the road to see if a diaper issue was present (it wasn’t) and I couldn’t get his clothes back on so I just took them off. Thankfully, after a long nursing session he fell asleep in my arms and I gently transferred the nakey baby to the car seat where he slept the whole way home.
You guys, I’ve got some seriously love for Shake Shack. I was obsessed when I was preggo and we made the, then, hour long trek often, but avoided it due to soy and dairy for the past year. One opened up near my dads, so we’ve been heading there a lot. I forgot to take a picture when the food was in front of me because I essentially blacked out, but a cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle with ketchup on it, plus fries and a strawberry lemonade and amazing. Ryan was pretty excited to just be out and about. as per usual.
In the summer we use the grill non-stop to avoid heating the house, so dinner Saturday called for chicken and vegetable kabobs, quartered potatoes and corn all on the grill. nomnomnomnom
-The new website!
I transfered over to wordpress.com on Friday and though it’s been a bit stressful and a good amount of work, I love it so far! The name has been changed a bit to “Morgan Manages Mommyhood” but everything is the same. Thanks for sticking with me, and for sticking with me while I continue to make the site pretty and functional!!
