Weekend Update

Pin It Now! What a great weekend it's been!  Saturday, Eric let me sleep in while he played with Avery.  When I finally got up (8:30) he already had her fed and dressed for the day, yay!  After nap 1, we went and ran a couple of errands together and stopped by the pet store to look at the animals.  Avery LOVES the birds!  She gets a huge smile on her face anytime they fly around the cage.  So cute!  That evening, I went to a moms' night out while Eric took care of dinner, evening playtime, bath, and bed.  I had such a great time with 6 great friends from our playgroup!  We had delicious food (I had some yummy seafood fritters, fish tacos, and brought home a dessert of chocolate peanut butter pie) and wonderful conversation!  I love it when you meet women through your child but end up finding really good friends!  We try to get together about once a month without the kids for an evening out.  It's a nice break and always a great time!  

Today, Eric once again let me sleep in (8:45 this morning).  It was his turn to sleep in but he had to leave for a week in San Francisco (he has a conference for work) at about 10 this morning so he wanted to spend some extra time with Avery before he left.  After I put Avery down, we packed up his car and he headed off.  I'm going to miss him so much this week but I know he is really excited about going so that makes it a little easier.  He doesn't have to travel too often, only about once every 3 months or so.  The best part is that my parents are here in town so they always come over and help me out in the evenings.  They fix me dinner and help with bath and bedtime, plus it's nice to have some adult conversation!  After Eric left and Avery was up and fed, we ran some errands, a trip to Target and the library.  After nap 2, Avery and I headed to a friend's house for a barbecue.  It was so nice to catch up and her husband is the best cook so the food was delicious!  Now, Avery is in bed and I am finally able to relax and enjoy a quiet house!  


  1. Sounds like a great weekend. I love girl time too even if its just going to a kid free house and watching a chick flick with your girl friends and eating pop corn. Lol. Hope you have a great week it will fly by and your hubby will be home before you know it.

  2. Thanks Krystal! Girl time is the best! It's amazing how fast the week is already going by and we are having a great time just the 2 of us! You have a great week too!
