Weekend Review- The Cell Phone Edition.

This is a nice little forewarning to let you know that 95% of these pictures are taken off my Galaxy S3 and as much as it’s a good camera for a phone, the pictures don’t really look the prettiest on a blog post.

Happy Monday!

Friday:

Friday was probably our laziest day. I don’t think we left the house once. I know it’s probably not the best thing to admit, but I am a total homebody. I will choose to stay at home in my pjs with my daughter and Dominic over almost anything else. Sad, but true. Dominic would probably say the same thing. I guess we really just love each other’s company :) Although Dominic worked all night every night this weekend, Olivia took his spot and her and I snuggled on the couch all night. We practiced animal sounds and every time I said ‘ruff ruff ruff’ she would laugh hysterically. I love that she thinks I’m so hilarious.

I ended my night with a little ice cream sundae. Yes, those are candy cane sprinkles. I love sprinkles.

Saturday:

Olivia had a hard time sleeping and finally at 3am, we decided to just bring her in our bed.

(That’s her standing in the crib screaming “mamaaaaa…..dadaaaa….” And also, the time isn’t right.)

After she came in our bed, we all got some pretty good sleep and when we woke up, we just laid around and soaked in the sun that was coming in through our blinds. A nice and lazy morning.

Like I said before, one of the only good things about Dominic working late is that we get to wake up to him in the morning. The second? Taking Olivia downstairs and making us blueberry pancakes.

Blueberry pancakes make us do crazy things………like dance and make funny faces…naked, of course.

Then Dominic got ready for work, and my Sister and my Dad came over, and we went to the mall. We seriously go to the mall so much, but it’s so cold out that it’s really all we can do, if we wanna get out of the house. Spring, we are ready for you.

Olivia threw her first Penny in the water fountain, she was so proud of herself.IMG_20130223_195500 20130223_143047 20130223_143144 20130223_143317 20130223_160655 20130223_160944

We stopped by my grandparents house for a little while, and when we got home I was supposed to give her a bath but she was a little fussy so we cuddled a little, and then she was passed out cold.

I ended my night with a little mom time. Tea, the Wedding Date, a few Girl Scout cookies, and some blog stuff.

Sunday:

I received free tickets a few weeks ago for a Bridal Expo in O’hare. I went to one a few years ago just for fun, and I didn’t really remember it because I wasn’t really thinking about getting married. But this time around, we went there with a purpose: wedding invitation ideas, flowers, and to try desserts….duh.. Oh and there was a fashion show, which was a nice bonus. I had to take Olivia with me because Dominic had to work, but I didn’t mind. Although I honestly thought she was gonna be a little fidget-y and want to walk, (she was in the bjorn because it was too crowded for anything else) she was so good. She got a little fussy toward the end, but that was because it was wayyyy past her nap time and she ended up falling asleep in my arms during the fashion show.

We stopped at one of my fave restaurants in Oak Park, The Ale House, and got turkey burgers before going home. We weren’t home for more than 5 minutes before deciding to go with Dominic’s parents to Target (how could we say no to Target?!) and for a quick little trip to Cold Stone to visit my sister.

(best face ever? so far, yes.)

We ended our Sunday with a nice bath, a suave hair-do, milk for baby and cup of sleepy-time tea for mama.

I ended my night by picking out Olivia’s flower girl dress, and shoes (I’m in LOVE!) and next weekend we are hopefully going to pick out the bridesmaids dresses! I swear I get more and more excited every day; I cannot wait to marry Dominic.

I hope everyone had a fun weekend!

xo,

Katie
