Hi there. I hope the week is off to a good start. I’m long overdue announcing some giveaway winners + a have a weekend recap for you.
The weekend included a lot of hanging out with my favorite little man. Still working on learning to love tummy time. A friend gave us this water mat that seems to help and I’m hoping he’ll find it more and more interesting as he gets a little older! He’s also started rolling from his back to his belly so he’s also getting some self-inflicted tummy time these days too.
On Friday afternoon I had a package to mail at the post office and then we ended up driving around for a while. I decided a stop into Laurel Market for some cake was necessary.
The weather was gorgeous on Friday so we hung out outside on a blanket for a little while that evening and then took our second walk of the day. I love being outside! Finn does too.
Friday ended with leftovers and coconut cake on the couch.
We met a friend for coffee and a stroll around the farmers market on Saturday morning.
Tomato sandwich lunch. I’ve been adding bacon to all of my tomato sandwiches lately and it’s a good addition. 😉
Virginia came over for dinner on Saturday night. She brought coho salmon, asparagus and salad stuff and I made cheese grits. Virginia is really into her sous vide cooker and brought it over to cook the salmon.
Sous vide means “under vacuum” in French. You vacuum-seal what you’re making in a bag and then it cooks in a water bath to the temperature you set it to cook to.
The salmon was perfectly cooked and melt in your mouth tender. I was impressed by the sous vide!
Sunday started with snuggles and HGTV on the couch.
And then my longest postpartum run yet. I ran 5 miles and felt much more like my pre-pregnancy running self. Nothing felt weird or off other than needing to pump when I got home.
We did a lot of hanging around the house and a little errand running. I had to grab a few things at the grocery store but we mostly stuck close to home.
The evening ended with a walk around the neighborhood with Finn and the pups.
And doing some damage to the Laurel Market carrot cake. Finn is starting to get a bit grabby and was holding onto the cake container while I was eating. And yes, that is a crumb under his eye. 🙂
