5 Things from a June Weekend.
Happy Monday, all!
We had a calm weekend with plenty of downtime and friend dates Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It was a good balance of calm with some plans thrown in. Going into hermit mode on the weekend never helps me feel refreshed come Monday, so I like to typically have a couple things planned.
Before I get into some weekend highlights, I’ve been doing A LOT of podcasts recently. Here are my two most recently released one:
- The Way You Are Project: Episode 5 – I love when I’m on a podcast and we just FLOWWWW. Erica and I got along so well we ended up grabbing lunch this weekend, since she too lives in Houston. She is fabulous and I can’t wait to listen to her other podcast interviews.
- RD Real Talk: Episode 16 – Heather was so great to have me on her podcast again! I always love our conversations. She’s another podcast host that does an excellent jobs at making guests feel comfortable.
Here were some of our weekend highlights:
Anne (I love that the two of us our so close in our pregnancies!) has been posting about eating cooked eel sushi during pregnancy, which reminded me that sushi was sure sounding good. Saturday night we met some of our good friends for dinner at KA sushi. Andrew drank all the whiskey and after I took him crib shopping with me and he was hilarious.
Speaking of Andrew, this weekend he installed some blinds and sunshades in our house and they really make the house look more complete and provide more privacy. I really like them!
Friday I took myself out to lunch and ordered a tuna melt, which was the only thing on the menu that sounded good at all. Appetite was gone all week, but hunger has been off the charts still. While I was waiting for my food a waiter came and told me they were all out of tuna melts, so naturally I just started crying. I’m like, “don’t you understand I’m pregnant and nothing else sounds good?!” I didn’t say that, and instead ordered their veggie sandwich, which ended up being totally delicious and I’ll probably go back and order it again this week. Hummus + avocado + cheese were made for each other Sleepless in Seattle style.
Last night we finished watching House of Cards, while I watercolored. I’ve been trying to do more figures. We recently came across some figure sketches that Andrew’s grandma had done and they were so gorgeous so I was feeling inspired to try some. I’m excited to do more. We are heading on vacation soonish and one thing I want to do when there is find somewhere in nature to sit and do some figure watercoloring while listening to an audiobook, either Big Magic or The Happiness Trap. Can’t wait!
The last weekend highlight was I had a craving for You’ve Got Mail, so I spent a good portion of Saturday afternoon relaxing on the sofa and watching it. One of the best movies of all time.
I hope you all had a great weekend :) Looking forward to hearing about them in the comments section! As always, feel free to link to your blogs!
