Goooood morning! Monday is unfortunately here again all too quickly but I hope you had a great, relaxing weekend! I fortunately have two more days off from work to spend with my mom and L so today will be another fun filled family day!
We had a super fun busy weekend filled with family, good food, and relaxing! It is still COLD here in Boston with grey skies and dreary weather so we stayed inside a lot. Trying to entertain a restless toddler is becoming harder and harder with everyone growing stir crazy. Thankfully we have lots of bubbles, always a hit!
On Friday we brought L over to the mall to play at the indoor playground. We got there a little later then normal and it was filled with older kids running all around so we did the best we could with L. Most things are age appropriate for him but he doesn’t understand yet he can get hurt, how to take turns, and patience. But it was still good to get him out of the house!
That night my mom and I went out for a super fun dinner date at 110 Grill. It’s a small, local chain that really focuses on quality and service! We got there early and grabbed a seat at their bar and immediately ordered a bottle of Pinot Noir and mussels marinara for an app. My husband despises most seafood so I take advantage of any opportunity I can to eat the good stuff!
A few minutes into our app we noticed a commotion outside. Turns out two grown men were in a fist fight!! Over TEN dollars! Who does that?! They got kicked out and arrested and it was quite a show so that was our dinner entertainment!
But really, my mom and I had a blast. We talked about everything and enjoyed some delicious food. My mom got a goat cheese salad and I had the turkey burger which is topped with carmelized onions, cranberry aioli, apples, and goat cheese! How do I always forget my love for goat cheese?!? She spoiled me with a great meal and the best company.
Saturday morning we were off early to Carmax to finish up some paper work before picking up our new car Tuesday. If you are in the market for a car I highly recommend checking them out! Excellent customer service, easy to deal with and no pressure buying. They also encourage you to use your own bank for an auto loan even they do offer their own financing. My rate through our local credit union was 5 percent lower then what they offered!!! Amazing. So ya, go check them out!
That night we had my mother in law for dinner and she made a big Italian meal for us. We played Watch Ya’ Mouth and almost we could not stop laughing! At one point we even woke L up we were cracking up so hard. Have you ever played?!? Highly recommend it!
Sunday was a pampering day! Mani’s, pedi’s, and lunch with my mom! We always make an effort to do this every time we’re together and it’s so relaxing and such a treat. Pampering myself is something I tend to push off so I truly enjoyed every minute and I am thankful my mom loves it too! There were so many mom/daughter duos in the salon and I hope one day we’ll have a daughter that I can pamper as well!
L played at home with my husband while we were gone and truthfully it was such a nice break! He has been so unbelievably needy lately, or I guess in general. He is kind of just a needy kid… anybody else have one of those? But I think cutting four molars slowly at the same time is pretty painful so he won’t let me out of his sight these last few days.
The rest of Sunday was spent grocery shopping and prepping for the week, playing with L and getting some work done. My husband and I snuck out for a much needed dinner alone after putting L to bed. Halfway through I got a message from my mom letting me know L was up and boycotting bed, cuddling with her on the couch. Silly kid. Sleep has not been his thing the last few weeks but my mom loved it!
Soooo that was probably a lot more then you wanted to know about my weekend, huh? It was really so great but a super busy weekend! I am sad to have my mom leaving tomorrow but she will be back in May and then again in July. Maybe we will get out to California for a week in the fall as well! We shall see!!
What did you do this weekend? Have you ever played Watch Ya’ Mouth?! It is truly hilarious and I cannot wait to play again!
