Happy Monday. I know it’s probably a little “back to reality” for some of you after the July Fourth holiday mid-week last week and vacations/long weekends.
We had a good weekend over here. The days are seeming a little less long after those early newborn days and I feel like I’ve been able to get out and about a bit more. Also, the weather in Charlotte was amazing this weekend. The storms we had on Friday afternoon brought in a front with some cooler air. Saturday was overcast and in the 70s and Sunday was sunny but the start to the day was in the 60s and refreshingly cool.
Here are some highlights from my weekend!
Lots of Walking
I did a lot of dog and baby walking over the weekend. On Friday Zoey, Finn and I walked a little over three miles and then on Saturday Sullie joined us for a three mile walk since it was cooler out. She’s been “walk striking” lately when it’s really hot. We’ll be walking and all the sudden she stops dead in her tracks and refuses to go forward until you turn around and head home. I was worried something was hurting her but she’ll happily walk with no problem if it’s cooler. She just doesn’t like to be hot!
On Sunday morning I met a friend who’s due with a baby any day now for an “induction walk.” I told her I’d take her on the same walk I went on the day I went into labor. Haha. (I don’t think it worked!) We walked a little over four miles and later that day I took the girls out for another mile.
So lots of walking this weekend! It’s become one of my favorite activities.
Pizza, Cupcakes + Sushi
I also ate some good food. On Friday night I grabbed a slice of pizza and some gelato from Whole Foods.
Saturday afternoon I had a chocolate peanut butter cupcake from Sunflour. Also…I got a manicure and pedicure on Friday evening for the first time since having Finn. That pedicure was VERY needed!
On Saturday night I picked up sushi.
Farmers Market + Coffee Run
At the market I got tomatoes, eggplant, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, potatoes, blueberries and okra. I do a good job with bringing my own reusable shopping bags but clearly I need to get on the reusable produce bag bandwagon!
Lots of Finn Cuddles
The best part of my weekend was lots of Finn cuddles. I watched a couple different movies at night including Set It Up and Brain on Fire on Netflix.
Soaking up all this sweetness and all of these cuddles while he’s still so small and wanting to sleep on me.
And that’s all. I hope it was a good weekend for you too!
Any Netflix movies to recommend?
