Hope everyone had a great weekend. We did not have any huge plans but yet another weekend of getting things done plus some relaxing.
Friday night we went to my co-worker’s house for a work party. We try and do get togethers a few times a year and this time it was in honour of Baby K. Our work potlucks are always a great time and full of way too much delicious food. After stuffing my belly more than full all my co-workers surprised us with a whole bunch of goodies for Baby K. She is one spoiled baby. Here are all the goodies:
Plus a few gift cards for Mom and Dad and a beautiful mobile which you guys will see in the nursery reveal next week…I am so, so lucky to have such great co-workers and I truly will miss them on my year off. I have already told them I will be there visiting way too much
Saturday morning we met my Mom at the market since it ends next weekend, we did not buy anything, just some coffee and looked around. After me and Chad ran our errands, it was one of those days where you have to go to three stores for every one item on your list. Fun times. Thankfully Chad saw my grumpy hungry self coming out and got me somewhere for lunch. We finally tried the Coconut Room downtown. We both had the coconut chicken curry, me with a carrot side salad and Chad had a cornbread muffin.
Yeah I will be back there for sure.
By the time we got home it was mid afternoon and we had planned on going to the corn maze which I was not feeling like doing. Too much walking these days hurts (bad at times) so we decided to pass this year. Next year with Baby K will be way better anyways! Instead Chad decided to go golfing since we never got out this year together. I was going to stay at home but then said if he rented a cart I would go too. The weather was nice so I figured it would be a nice chance to enjoy one of the last sunny afternoons.
I love fall so much and golf courses are so pretty during this time:
I obviously hit some setting on this this photo and just realized it…
On our way home we stopped at the video store and rented a couple movies, The Croods and Star Trek Two. We watched The Croods last night and it was a good movie but the best part? The graphics, they were unbelievable. We rarely rent Blue-Ray so that is probably why it looked so much better this time.
Sunday morning started off different than usual because now I do not have my gym membership so instead I hit up our home gym and Chad went to the gym solo. Obviously people even at the gym are not used to this as a few people asked where I was. Working out at home gave me a head start on brunch. I decided to make Chad’s favorite waffles, Multigrain Blueberry and make the full batch of 24 so I could freeze some.
Our afternoon was tackling yet another to do list:
– Cleaning – including the microwave and in between the glass on the stove – turned out to be a little harder than we thought and it was a good thing my Mom was also here. We only broke one small piece in the end… but my glass is clean! Lol.
– Laundry plus another load of cloth diapers
– A couple more freezer meals – turkey lasagna and chili
– Hanging the nursery mobile and re-doing the shelves – third time is a charm right?
– Shredding a massive zucchini (my Mom actually did this) so she can bake with it for us and her.
– Putting together a few last items for the hospital bag (yesterday was ONE month till her due date!)
– And finally relaxing…
We had some chili for supper then relaxed in the evening and watched Star Trek Two. A great way to end the weekend.
What is your favorite way to use zucchini?
Anyone else take advantage of the nice weather still and get outside this weekend?
