There should be a day between Sunday and Monday called Sleepday. I feel wiped from the past week and just want to curl up under the covers and doze off for a good long while. Weird since I am still averaging 8+ hours of sleep each night. So, a rather quick recap of the weekend:

Friday: Pancakes. Duh, I know. I love them so much. This week they’ll probably be green because I’ve got a huge container of spinach sitting in the fridge. Hope they turn out ok!


After quickly squeezing in a workout, walk with the dogs and a shower, I met up with Jen for an afternoon industry tasting session of Winefest.

It was a pretty neat session since it was FAR less crowded than normal. We were able to chat with many of the vendors and learned a few things. And drank wine. Mmm, wine.

Saturday: I didn’t sleep a wink the night before, so the morning was a rough go. (More from the lack of sleep than from the wine. I feel so grown up?)Β Tyler made a delicious breakfast and I ended up napping on the couch..then being a couch potato for most of the rest of the day.


Remember when I thought I killed my computer? We ordered a replacement before determining the existing still worked. So- we sold the old computer and I got to open the new one! Even though it’s exactly the same, it’s a bit exciting. Although now my pictures are all backed up on a separate hard drive and I’m dreading having to sort through them eventually.


And my child loves cheese.


I gave Wes a quick bath while Tyler brought his mom back to the airport then quickly hopped in the car to head to Winefest AGAIN.


This time, I met up with Susie and opted to try more of the white wines. This tasting was open to the public, so there was a lot of interesting people watching! I wound up eating more than drinking (maybe 1 full glass total?) andΒ was home by 10:30. I have to remember that I’m no good at staying out late anymore! It was still a lot of fun πŸ™‚


Sunday:Β With Wes being on a 1-nap-a-day kick, he has been going down a lot earlier each night, but also stirring a bit earlier in the morning. I got him out of his crib at 7:15am and he actually fell asleep on me for an additional hour! I would have loved the extra sleep myself, but I sat there and soaked up the giant baby cuddles.


Tyler requested waffles for breakfast which I was all to happy to make! They had to be vegan waffles because we ran out of eggs. It took a lot of willpower for me to not eat any of the leftovers and store them in the freezer for a future last minute breakfast.

A good order of operations: make breakfast BEFORE scrubbing every inch of your bathroom clean. Man alive do bathroom gets gross or what? I was on hands and knees getting behind the toilet and everything. Nasty.



After Wes’s nap, we opted to head down to the Foothills Hospital Home Lottery home.We bought a few tickets for it this year, and needed to check out our potential new home πŸ˜‰ This is the first year that we actually really liked it! Every room was pretty darn awesome.

Since the house is on an island, we had to take a shuttle. Wes was a trooper the entire time!



Before dinner, I was about to take the dogs for a walk and noticed Layla’s tags were missing from her collar. I ended up taking them on the same route as the day before to see if they had fallen off anywhere, but no luck. I took them for another walk after dinner to just unwind and go at a decent pace since it was them dark and no sense trying to look for the tags then.

Ok, I’ve done about 300 loads of laundry today, most of the house is clean, and I’m wiped. Hope you had a great weekend!

  1. I’m super impressed with your restraint on the second night. I just wouldn’t want to pay the price to not get my moneys worth. ha ha!
    But I agree the Friday session was so nice having it be not crowded at all, I really appreciated that. Thanks again for taking me!

  2. I agree there should be a sleep day inbetween! I’m soo tired after this weekend!! Sounds like you had a great weekend. It is soo hard when they transition to one nap, granted for me it meant a longer break because Noah only napped for 30 minutes twice a day and when we switched to one nap it meant 1.5-2 hours or peace and quiet!! Haha

  3. Ugh, wouldn’t it be awesome if weekends were 3 days long!? Two days is just not enough time to sleep, relax AND get shit done. Nice deal on the laptop! Were you able to get much for your old one?? I would think green pancakes would turn out fine since you make your batter in the vitamix! You can always freeze your spinach too! πŸ™‚ I think this is the first time I’ve seen you with your hair straight?! Looks great!
