Le Weekend.

I figured it's been a while since I shared a weekend recap, and those are some of my favorite posts to read on other blogs!

First of all, please tell me -- am I the only one who falls asleep on the couch at an embarrassingly early time Friday nights? I was dozing off at 8:30. Ian was like -- April, really?! But after a long week, and an awesome dinner that I didn't have to cook (Ian grilled wings for us), and laying back on the couch with the fireplace on and a cozy blanket ... I didn't stand a chance to make it any later than I did.

Saturday, I went to a baby shower at Napa on Providence.

The baby shower menu was so delicious that I was stacking food on top of food.

We can't wait until this little miss makes her appearance and Camille can have a new playmate!

Later that afternoon my little teddy bear and I went to the grocery store to get ingredients for a yummy meal.

I took Natasha's suggestion and made the copycat Mongolian Beef from PF Chang's for dinner ... holy deliciousness. More to come on this later!

Sunday consisted of making a baby bikini top out of Mama's eye mask ...

... and was later followed by a family walk around the neighborhood, a visit with our friends/neighbors, a little football watching for Ian, some mimosas, and a playdate at our house with Camille's daycare "boyfriend." It is a hoot watching those two together ... they are ten days apart in age and have so much fun hanging out with each other and getting into mischief. 

This will be a short work week for us ... we have a little family getaway planned later this week!


  1. We're lameo falling asleep on the couch folks at my house too! Can't help it. :) And YAY for the upcoming getaway! EEE! xx

  2. Love a fun getaway -- still daydreaming about ours (wah!!). Love your earrings in the baby shower pic -- I'm trying to get out of my Studs Only rut and branch out into fun dangly items!

  3. I'm right there with you on the Friday night sleep thing! After a long week, staying up until 10:00 pm is just too hard to do.

  4. Ohhh I fell asleep on the couch SO early both nights this weekend and felt so completely lame!! THanks for sharing and making me feel a little better. haa This mama business can wear a girl out some days!

  5. After a long week, a cozy blanket and a seat by the fireplace would lull anyone to sleep. I'm also waiting patiently for the arrival of my niece (Ariel) in February. Happy Monday, April :)

  6. The couch is where it's at, lol! We fall asleep on it on the reg - and usually it's somewhere in the 9 pm region, so don't feel bad, Mama. It happens to the best of us:) Can't wait to hear more about your little getaway! January is the best time for little trips!

  7. sounds like a great weekend that mongolian beef sounds gooood. xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  8. I was asleep by 8 Saturday night (my babe doesn't sleep through the night so honestly I fall asleep at 8 most nights ;) ). The shower looked beautiful! I've always passed Napa on Providenxe and wondered if it was yummy! Camille is just so precious - what a fun shopping buddy!

  9. SOO right there with you on the early bedtime on the weekend. I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I kinda look forward to it! It's definitely exhausting being a working mama sometimes!!

  10. I seriously run to the bed when Tripp falls asleep. So lame, but so necessary. Have so much fun on your getaway....totally necessary as well! :)

  11. We have wild Friday nights like that too! Sometimes you just need it! I love Camille in her little bear jacket - soo cute!!

  12. I have totally fallen asleep that early before. In fact, I could probably fall asleep right now! :)

    Also, random, but I'm pretty sure that I was in that Harris Teeter over the Christmas holiday.... and I may or may not have been slightly tipsy at that point. (oops.)
