Our Weekend

Saturday started off great - Ina and I chilled while Dan had to finish up some work.  I had the rare time opportunity to actually cook my breakfast - egg sandwich with hot sauce and a few clementines.

Dan got home  and I handed my baby love off and went on an incredibly windy, but beautiful 6 mile run with my friend Kim.  

We planned our route around Starbucks - always a good idea.

Once we were finished I scurried around, trying to finish up some last minute stuff before some friends came over to celebrate Dan's birthday.

It was a beautiful night,

and Ina started the evening off looking fantastic.

However, once the crowd showed up she was not having any of it.  Multiple people tried to help, but even my sister, who is like the baby whisperer, couldn't calm my upset baby down.  

I spent over an hour upstairs in her nursery while my house was full of people - not exactly how I pictured the night going down.  Eventually, I got her to sleep - and she slept for the next 9 hours!  Poor girl was over-tired.

So was her mamma - between the 6 mile run and getting the house semi-ready, I couldn't keep my eyes open.  I apologized to the people who were still hanging out and went to bed around 9:30.  Par-tay.

I made some sangria,

and filled up two different glasses over the course of the night, but I don't think I actually drank much of it.  I did, however, get a chance to enjoy some of the awesome food that everyone brought (in moderation).

(Three cheers for my weekly points allowance!)

(The rest of that cookie cake has been staring at me all weekend.)

We started off Sunday at church,

then came home for a little grandma time.

Dan's grandma stopped by to see her "sweet cheeks."  

After lunch

we headed back to church again to take our church's membership class.

It was so interesting to see the history behind our church and great to confirm that we agree with its core beliefs. 

We finished the day up watching the nail biting Royals' game we DVR'd.

Today I get to see my boys in blue in real life.  I am working this morning, and then heading to Kauffman stadium for the home opener.  Yay!

Thought for the day

  1. I remember growing up how tired my mom got when we'd have a bunch of people over. Moms' lives are busy and exhausting sometimes! Sounds like you had a beautiful weekend. Cheers~
