Well. It is 8:54 on a friday night. My kids are asleep and the dishes are done and my husband is at the gym with a promise to bring me back salty french fries and a Sprite. I like to live on the edge.
We’re headed into a three-day-weekend (one of the few that my husband actually gets off from work, hooray) and I am trying to relax, but instead my brain keeps thinking of all that needs to be accomplished and all that I am behind on. I may just have to use my mani/pedi gift certificate to help me relax and b r e a t h e.
So, how was your week? Mine was insanely busy, productive, and yet fun!
My parents popped into town over the weekend and my mom, myself, the girls, my sis-in-law, and my two nephews all went strawberry picking. The U-Pick stands are one of my favorite things about living in a town with an agriculturally focused university. It was a blast and we picked a ton!
Our littlest girl has been changing so much lately! It’s a good thing there is another baby on the way or I might have a meltdown. She has said goodbye to bottles and the high chair and the crib. Their room has so much more s p a c e now. I need to not become too attached to this arrangement as there will soon be a new crib for a new little one in this same room.
I told you we picked a ton of strawberries and I wasn’t kidding. This Better Homes and Gardens fresh strawberry pie recipe calls for 8 cups! Plus, we ate a ton of them fresh (still have some) and I froze some for smoothies. By the way, this pie is delicious, especially with homemade whipped cream.
Thursdays are Lunch-With-Daddy days. It was beautiful out, so we drove to a favorite cove. Addie made me run back and forth with her along the beach. She got soaked. We hunted for beautiful rocks and I made my hubby take a pic of the bump since I have barely any photos of this pregnancy so far! I like the idea of being able to show my kids these pics someday. “See, that was you inside of me!”
My youngest brother is in town this weekend, so I will be spending some time with him. We’ll also be doing some family adventuring, some yard projects, and some daddy-daughter time.
What are your weekend plans? Have a good one!
