This weekend started with blueberry muffins on Saturday morning. I’ve recently started having trouble getting comfortable at night (snoogle and all) and haven’t been sleeping great. So Saturday I woke up way before Andrew and wanted something to do…muffin making it was! I searched pinterest and went with this recipe.
Sometimes it’s nice to cook / bake without taking any pictures for a recipe post. I just put on some music and got to baking. I followed the recipe exactly as is and they came out delicious.
For breakfast I had a couple paired with an iced latte :)
Then I went and moved my body + stopped by Target to pick up a baby shower gift for my cousin.
Then I made Andrew and I a quick lunch of tomato soup + asparagus grilled cheese + a lemonade. We love the Simply Lemonade brand as is or mixed with some water / sparkling water to tastebud desired sweetness level.
Then we headed to my cousin’s baby shower, who is due about 2 months before me. Maggie got to come with and hang out with my parent’s dogs for the afternoon. My parent’s live on the same street as one of my cousins and that cousin was throwing the shower for my other cousin. Does that make sense? Perfect!
The shower theme was “woodland animals” and was super cute.
I was in a chocolate mood and was happy when I saw Nothing Bundt Cakes bundtinis! Chocolate bundtini for me!
After the baby shower we hung out with my parents, then picked up a Papa Murphy’s pizza for dinner on the way home. I was exhausted and asleep on the couch by 8pm.
The next morning we got up and were on time to church for the first time in probably 3 months lol.
At church we stopped in the connected coffee shop and I got tacos + a vanilla latte for breakfast.
After church we went and checked out some strollers at Buy Buy Baby. Geez. Talk about overwhelming. BUT the sales lady was a mom and was super helpful.
We had registered for the Uppababy stroller, but I just didn’t feel right about it for a couple reasons. So we’re gonna go with the City Select Baby Jogger Stroller + Chicco infant seat. Since we want more than one kiddo, we want a stroller that can convert to 2 seats for 2 kids…and that stroller can do that. To my moms out there, any stroller thoughts are welcome in the comments! And if you have any glider / rocker recs, i’d love those too!
After stroller shopping we headed out to Andrew’s parents house for lunch.
Pulled pork sliders + slaw + cantaloupe from their garden that was epic.
We talked and hung out and later Andrew’s dad made him and I some root beer floats.
The rest of Sunday was spent getting groceries, getting drenched in a summer thunderstorm, prepping a pasta salad for a couple meals this week and driving Andrew to pick up his car that was getting work done this weekend.
I kept our dinner simple with a chocolate covered peanut appetizer lol
…and some crab cakes + sweet potato fries.
I just had an apple + chocolate milk and now I’m off to bed!
