Saturday morning started with donuts + eggs + a latte. I’m really liking breakfasts of eggs paired with a baked good. Oatmeal hasn’t sounded good in weeks, which is usually one of my go-tos. I think I may swing by my fav scone place and pick up a few scones for the rest of this week.
I wish I would’ve prepped some more frozen breakfast options before Jo was born. I prepped dinners and didn’t realize that mornings are really when I need the most help with food because Jo wakes up hungry and needs to be fed asap or she cries and that ends up with me not eating for an hour…which doesn’t work bc I wake up hungry too ha. Soooo moral of the story I need to prep / pick-up some easy breakfast options for me.
Back to the weekend…
Late Saturday morning my parents stopped by our house to drop off some food. We were talking and THENNNNN Layne (my big sister) walked in! I freaked out!
Her and Marco live in DC and they weren’t supposed to get to meet Joanna until Christmas, but she got a flight this weekend to surprise me. I realized I’d never been surprised before (like a surprise party surprise) and IT WAS AWESOME. I love having sisters. It was so great and surreal having her meet my baby. My baby! haha. Still sounds crazy to me.
We spent the weekend together. On Sunday, Quinn (my little sister) came in from college and we all went to church + brunch together.
Sunday marked our first restaurant outing with Jo. And it was my first day nursing in public. I’m not ready to start giving her bottles yet. I like being the only one who can feed baby girl and I’m not ready to give that up.
I joked that we were going to take the meal in stages. Stage one: make it into the restaurant. Stage two: make it through ordering. Stage three: Make it through the meal…and so on. I fed Jo in the restaurant and was pretty nervous about making other (non-family) people uncomfortable. I wore a nursing cover, but I was kinda surprised how nervous I was about feeding her in public. But we did it! I’m glad Andrew and my sisters were there to support & encourage me.
Sunday evening our little family dropped Layne at the airport and went to the grocery store. We didn’t order curbside pickup in time, so we went inside the store. Still loving our Solly wrap.
For dinner I made us sandwiches on slider-sized 3 cheese buns (that were awesome) with smoked turkey + a slaw (just one of those salad kits I pretended was a slaw). Came out super delish.
Then I had some fun ice cream I picked up from the store. It was pretty tasty, but I wish the cookie crumbles that were in it were actually cookie dough. Then it really would’ve been magical.
Today for lunch I prepped a massive batch of croutons and had some store-bought kale salad with smoked turkey and blue cheese.
Joanna has cried anytime I put her down today. She usually naps pretty well by herself, but today that’s not the case. No complaints… :)
