Weekend at a glance

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

Natal Day weekend was faaaabulous. It went by way too quickly but it was a nice mix of productivity, fun, good news, and all that lovely stuff.

Saturday it rained, so we spent the day running errands, going to the gym, tidying the house, and other odds and ends. We did pick up this little outfit for the baby, which I happen to think is pretty much the sweetest onesie ever:

I also got crafty and made this yarn wreath for the bebe's room while watching a couple episodes of Mad Men (which, if you're not watching it, Season 4 is cray-cray):

Sunday ended up being a nicer day so that meant we had a lot of outdoors time. We took Rory for a long walk on a nearby trail in the morning. He got hot and had to cool off in the river.

Sunday afternoon was mostly this: a cold drink, a good book, and sunshine.

Monday ended up being nice too and after spending the morning weeding the flower gardens, doing laundry, etc. I headed to the beach for the afternoon.

We also went to a birthday party on Friday night and an engagement party on Sunday evening, made it to the gym all three days (woo!), went out for breakfast, bought paint for the baby's room, barbecued some sausages and got all caught up on Big Brother. Pretty snazzy little weekend.
