Weekend Recap


The day started of with a major party foul: I changed up my pancake recipe. Gasp, I know. I didn’t have enough greek yogurt, so I played around the with ingredient list and BAM- yucky pancakes happened. I still ate all of them though because: BREAKFAST IS MY FAVORITE.

(These were a mix of oats, greek yogurt, applesauce, egg whites and vega)

We had a later morning than usual, so I decided to throw any potential outings out the window (plus, there was frost outside, EWWWWWW). There were naps, snacks, a workout, jumperooing, book reading…the usual. And Wes is trying so hard to sit on his own. PS: If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see a hilarious slow-mo video of his sitting venture.

It warmed up a bit in the afternoon, so I took Wes for a nice long walk around the neighborhood. It’s so nice to walk around when it’s sunny and quite and potentially peep into everyone’s windows. I meannnn…check out their Halloween decorations. Which reminds me, we need to buy pumpkins and candy. We’re the house that gives out full sized candy bars!! nomnomnom

I was craving grilled cheese and soup for dinner, so I had Tyler pick up a couple of the needed ingredients and we DEVOURED it all in about .4 seconds. Tip: add bacon to your grilled cheese.

After Wes went to bed, we finished Pixels and started to watch Minions, but I fell asleep. You know you’re old when you BOTH go to bed before 10pm on a Friday night.


We finally took some family pictures! I was excited to get the three of us outside and take some photos with my fancy camera, but didn’t realized until we reached the park did I leave my memory card IN my computer. UGH. Thank goodness Tyler’s phone came to the rescue!















Most of the photos caught some of the picnic table, but I’ll be cropping those out when I get some prints done to frame.

After our impromptu photo shoot, we headed to the Y for Wes’s pool class and Tyler was the designated parent this week!

Then of course it was off to Costco. Enough said there.

Wes and I hung out in our comfies upstairs while Tyler was working on the insulation in the basement. We are getting better at tummy time! Layla included.

I tried to put him down for a nap, but he wasn’t too keen on it, so I bundled him up for a walk where he ended up getting around a half hour of shut eye.

Tyler made us an amazing steak dinner- I could eat this for every meal. And chocolate cake.

After Wes went to bed, we finished Minions then went to bed ourselves. Downside of parenthood: feeling like old people and getting to bed not long after baby. Upside of parenthood: I go to bed early and wake up sans hangover!


Slept in until 7:23am! That’s like….unheard of.

I fed Wes and quickly scarfed a Quest bar before getting in a 21 day fix workout. While he took his morning nap, I was able to shower, do the laundry, clean up the kitchen and bake another batch of Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars.

Tyler also made us a DELICIOUS brunch of bacon, sausage, eggs and hash browns. Oh, and a bit of Baileys in our coffee. NOMS.

I inhaled that whole plate.

Since winter is pretty much here, I needed to swap out a ton of clothes in my closet. I got rid of a LOT. It feels really good to purge some stuff that haven’t seen the light of day in ages. Plus, I found my Michael Kors bag that I so desperately wanted last year and have used about 2 times. So I’ve decided to sell it. Anyone want to buy it? Pretty please??


Seriously, I don’t think I’ll use it at all and I could really use the extra $$. Please email me if interested!

Tyler made us some delicious burritos for dinner and I ate way too much and still feel sick to my stomach.


Throughout the afternoon and evening Wes was OUT OF SORTS. He was so grumpy Tyler and I couldn’t figure out what to do for him! So we tried everything. There were some temporary solutions, but WOOF it made for quite the challenging day. He finally went to sleep at 8pm. I am really hoping this was just a one day thing because I have no idea how to tackle the day if it’s anything near the same and Tyler is at work.

At least he’s cute.
