I cannot believe that this past weekend was the first weekend of Spring and it was so chilly out. Although the sun was shining, that was the only time we were able to go out and enjoy the weekend without feeling extremely cold.
Spring, where are you? We have never been more ready for you.
Dominic had Friday off, which we always love. I slept in, and when I finally woke up at 11:30am, we had coffee, and blueberry pancakes and relaxed all morning. We had big plans to go to the mall to do a little Easter shopping, but instead, we stayed in and had a lazy day.We had a lost marathon (we’re OBSESSED!). It was great. Around dinner time, my dad came over, we ordered pizza, he stayed for a bit and then we continued our marathon.
Oh and Olivia in the refrigerator:
We started our morning the same; breakfast, coffee, Lost (I’m so serious when I say we’re hooked). Dominic got ready for work, and Olivia and I got ready to go out with my sister. We went to Wal-Mart, and then to…you guessed it. THE MALL. If it’s any consolation, we went to a different mall this time, and with a purpose. There’s a bigger H&M there, and I really wanted to get her a few things that I had seen on their site (H&M, WHEN are you going to let me online shop?!), but the line was literally out. the. door. and we were like hellllllllllllll no, so we walked around, visited the Disney store (Olivia didn’t want to leave, and I was so proud), a few other baby stores, and we even took Olivia on the carousel. I thought she was gonna freak, but she was actually quite calm. We stopped at one more store, where she was mesmerized by the jewelry, and then we left.
Also, baby toms? I can’t take how cute she looks in them.
Olivia and I went with my dad to wash his blankets at the laundromat, and she was running around, tiring herself out. By the time we got home, it was 9:30 and she was out in ten minutes. My favorite.
On Sunday, Olivia and I woke up early to meet up with the girls. We had two different appointments to look at bridesmaid dresses, and I was so excited! The first place we went to was a dud. It was shady, rude, and way too money hungry. We regrouped, and went to the place for the second appointment. Muchhhhh better. Our consultant was polite, friendly, and so much more fun. We found the PERFECT dress within a half hour. Here is my first piece of wedding advice on this blog, although it’s more of an ‘ism’. A weddingism. Anyway, here is goes: You will most likely walk in with a list of things you want, and absolutely don’t want, and you will walk out with something totally different, and with at least one thing that was on your ‘absolutely do not want’ list. In my case, I walked out with everything I said I didn’t want, and I am so happy. The dress is perfect for each girl, it wasn’t expensive, and they ALL love it (which is sometimes, the hardest part). After we did measurements, we parted ways and My sister, Olivia, and one of our bffs, Michelle, and I went to get lunch. I love catching up with Michelle because we don’t get to see her often, and we every time we’re together, we do nothing but laugh.
Afterward, I picked up Dominic, we went to the
Afterward, I picked up Dominic and we ran to the laundromat to wash our blankets. I totally forgot that his best friend (and best man, and Olivia’s God Father) and his girlfriend were coming to spend the night and I wanted the blankets to be nice and fresh.
I wasn’t feeling so hot so when we got home, I fell asleep on the couch for almost two hours. Seriously, literally just knocked out on the couch with my coat and boots still on. His parents had stopped by and I felt terrible that they were there to see us, and I fell asleep. They had just gotten back from a little vacation to Wisconsin and brought Olivia back two pairs of baby converse, and a pair of Minnetonka mocs! They are so cute on her.
Around 9:30, David and Trisha finally got here and we let Olivia stay up so that she can see him. We don’t get to see them often so we try to make the most of the time we have together when they’re here.
I honestly thought that she was going to be shy, but she ran right up to him and they were playing and laughing and kissing. Seeing them together, and how he is with her, just solidifies even more that we made the right decision in making him her God Father.
Side note- after I took these pictures, my camera died and I cannot find my camera charger anywhere! I’m already going through withdrawls and actually plan on going to by a new charger this afternoon.
After Olivia finally went to bed, the four of us stayed up and talked, laughed, reminisced, with our bloody marys in hand.
It was such a nice way to end the weekend, and I am hoping for a great week!
