food and friends and the best kind of weekend

Our weekend was pretty awesome. Friday I came home from work to a message from Will that he'd decided to go to Ikea and pick up the dresser for the nursery. Praise the Lord for another thing marked off of the to-do list. I also knocked something off the list with a stop at the mall to pick out a lamp. I couldn't decide, so I got three shades to try at home. We had a quick dinner when he got home, and I watched and relaxed as Will got the dresser about 80% complete. Perfect quiet end to a hectic work week.

On Saturday morning Will left the house early to help some friends of ours move, and I packed up the dogs and headed out for a morning of fun. Holly, Sadie, and I met three of my best friends and their pups at the bark park, and it was a blast. The weather was gorgeous and all the pups had a good time with each other and all the other park patrons. Even though we have a pretty good size yard, I like giving our doggies the chance to experience a new environment to sniff around in. I see many more mornings like this in our future this summer.

Happy dogs!

After dropping Holly and Sadie back at home, I met Will at our friend's new place to check it out. As expected, I loved the house, and am so so happy for them. Seeing all of our friends experience home ownership and marriage and pregnancy really makes life that much sweeter. Since their new home was close to the mall, we popped in to PB Kids to return the lamp shades that didn't work for us, and have a yummy lunch at Cheesecake Factory.

At this point we were both exhausted so we headed home to enjoy some sun. By 6pm I was seriously beat so I headed upstairs to take a nap. That nap turned into a 13 hours of sleep, with one wake up around midnight that only lasted a few minutes. I don't care how great the second trimester is- pregnancy is no joke!

Sunday it was up bright and early again to head Downtown. Will and I laughed multiple times this week about our plans. Sunday Funday and weekend priorities sure to change when there's a baby on board, don't they? Our Downtown adventure included morning Mass at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral, breakfast at Taste of Belgium, and shopping at Findlay Market.

We came home, hung out on the deck for most of the day, grilled out, and I even took a little nap outside. Will was able to put together the rest of the dresser, and that about wraps it up.

I didn't get as much checked off the to do list as I would have liked, but it was a really relaxing weekend. The kind that makes me think all the brutal months of disgusting winter may actually be worth it. Happy (rainy, disgusting) Monday!

Sounds like such a great weekend! (and sounds pretty productive to me) I totally agree with your statement that pregnancy is no joke no matter how great the 2nd trimester is!!

I know that you don't love the chicken and waffles combo, but we were in Nashville this weekend and I had to try these "famous" c&w. Let me tell you, TOB is the absolute best!!! So so good.
