The fa la la la laaaa-ing begins!
We spent some of the weekend decorating the house for Christmas. I actually let go of micromanaging Christmas decorating and let Andrew go get our tree by himself. I gave him instructions that this year I wanted a “short & fat” tree (clearly didn’t let go of all micromanaging…baby steps hehe). I usually think the bigger the better with Christmas trees, but this year I wanted something more mid-size.
While I would take at least 20 minutes to wander around the tree lot and find the perfect tree, Andrew said he picked out the tree in less than 20 seconds lol
I would’ve picked a little bit wider tree (which totally wouldn’t have fit in the spot we put the tree ha), but the height it great. Andrew put lights on it for us and then me and Jo spent some time decorating it.
And put out a few other Christmas-y things…
We don’t have a mantle/fireplace or stairs/banister in our house, so I never know what to do with our stockings. Still looking for a place to put em.
Saturday started with me making french toast for us.
I’m in love with the below photo <3<3<3
Then me and Jo went out shopping for Small Business Saturday. I loaded her up in the carseat…
Some meals and snacks from the weekend included:
eggs + bacon + tortillas
french toast + maple syrup + blueberries
salad with walnuts, cheese, bell peppers, blackberries + cinnamon swirl bread + iced tea
taco salad my parents made for us
chick-fila. The key to their cobb salad is to top it with their BBQ sauce and their avocado dressing. It’s perfect.
I didn’t realize I ate salads galore this weekend. So it goes.
Some snacks were…
lactation cookies my Doula made for me.
walnuts + chocolate
…and still making and loving my favorite chocolate chip cookies.
Sunday morning started with me feeding Joanna and Andrew going to pick up groceries. We’ve been using the curbside-pickup function at our local grocery store and it’s awesome. Andrew orders our groceries on Saturday evening and picks them up for us before church on Sunday morning.
Sunday morning Jojo had a massive spit up + cry fest. Mornings always end up feeling a bit nuts when Andrew isn’t home, but we’re figuring it out.
Andrew got back from the grocery store and we made it to church only 10 minutes late. YAY!
Pretty much every other minute of the weekend was spent feeding Jo + cuddling.
Today I’m planning on doing some CyberMonday shopping, Gilmore Girls watching, and kissing baby cheeks :)
