I love normal, go with the flow kind of weekends. Not too hectic, no real lulls. And thankfully, this weekend was one of them!

Let’s get right into the details…


This Friday was a little different from the rest. I ran to TJs, Target, and the Library (of course!). And then I came home and ate an early lunch while catching up on the latest episode of A Million Little Things. SO SO GOOD!

Then I had a work call for about an hour.

And then I went to Costco to get our tires changed. I also shopped a little and got some pictures printed. Man I love that place!

I came home and meal prepped a little bit (creamy orzo and baked chicken) before going to get K from school.

The rest of the evening was pretty routine – play, eat, bath, books, bed.

Once K was down for the night, Vishnu and I settled in to watch Bombshell. OMG! If you haven’t seen this yet, you need to ASAP. This movie was so intense, and it totally fired me up too. Robert Ailes and Fox News are just disgusting (and that’s putting it lightly). I was ranting all the way until I closed my eyes and fell asleep. Even though it made me so mad, I definitely recommend watching it. The acting was spot on.


Saturday started a little earlier than I would have preferred. K was up at 5:48, but when I offered to sleep on the floor next to his crib until the ‘yellow light’ came on (7:00), he laid back down. Unfortunately, he didn’t want to wait until then, so he was back up and asking to go outside at 6:20.

We played for a little bit, I made some breakfast, Vishnu woke up, and then V + K headed to the Children’s Museum. I debated going with them, but I had a few big things I wanted to get done, so I stayed home. But don’t worry I went to soccer on Sunday!

While they were away, I worked out, meal prepped, and started on a little art project we’ve been wanting to work on for a while. It’s for Kaiden’s room and involved his daycare artwork from over the past 2 years. I’ll share more in my Friday post, but I love how it all came together!

After Kaiden’s nap, he and I went to Mariano’s to pick up a few groceries I couldn’t find at Trader Joe’s. K’s been asking for chocolate ice cream for a couple of days now, and it’s not a treat we go out for often, so I grabbed Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked for the fam! It has chocolate in it, so K should be satisfied…(P.S. we haven’t opened it yet…but that’s a story for a different day).

The rest of the evening was pretty routine for a Saturday.


Sunday morning started at 5:45 again, but this time K didn’t want to stay in his crib for that long, so we were out in the living room a little past 6. The first part of our morning was spent watching Daniel Tiger, playing with our balloons, and eating breakfast.

Then we all got ready for soccer (yes, even me!) and headed out.

Watching K on the field is so fun. His little personality really shines through. I’m excited to see him start the next class even more because that one starts to get into more skill and independent playing.

After soccer, we stood around chatting with our friends (who’s son is in Kaiden’s daycare and soccer class). Vishnu suggested we go to brunch, so the six of us walked to a nearby restaurant for a delicious meal. Surprisingly, our toddlers were fairly well behaved too!

The rest of the day was spent cooking, reading (I finished The Silent Patient – SO GOOD!), and negotiating with our little guy (they should really teach a negotiations class for parents of toddlers).

Anndddd…that was our weekend in a nutshell! Hope you had a good one. 🙂
