How is it Monday already? We had such a busy weekend that I could use another day just to sit around and do nothing!
Friday we had our midwife appointment in the morning and then headed off to our designated jobs before meeting back up for dinner at American Flatbread. After dinner we headed to Neil’s Studio 54 themed work party for a short time but ended up leaving after being evacuated from the party tent due to severe thunderstorms. We managed to get a little bit of socializing in and a session in the photo booth but unfortunately a certain soaking wet pregnant lady did not want to stand around the safety shelter and wait for the storm to pass so we didn’t end up returning to the party and missed The Village People (yes the REAL Village People), oh well!
Saturday we woke up early and made our way down to the farmers market where we made our first stop at the juice bar, which is new this summer and is our new addiction. We decided to go with two different juices to share, the minty lemonade and the strawberry rhubarb, both of which were really delicious. We also picked up a load of veggies for the week including garlic scapes, greens, strawberries, herbs and radishes.
After the market it was time to head home and get ready for our baby shower!
After the shower we headed home to re-open all of our gifts and get them somewhat organized in the nursery. After that we decided to have a date night out at Babies’R’Us and dinner.
Sunday we headed out to another market which wasn’t great but we did end up seeing our juice bar friends again and this time I ordered up a Green Energy and Neil a Runners Remedy. After the market we picked up a few groceries and headed home for lunch before walking down to the beach, where we spent most of the early afternoon.
After spending a few hours at the beach we walked home and decided to use our free passes to the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center. We decided to pay the extra and visit the special Our Body exhibit that is going on until September. Our friends raved about it and it was pretty amazing.
After ECHO we weren’t ready to head home yet so we stopped down by the waterfront to sit and have a drink and a snack before heading home to relax on the couch and eat strawberry-rhubarb crisp.
How was your weekend?
