~Weekend Recap~

Weekends are going by faster and faster! Not fair!!

Friday night I went to yoga which was lovely! I missed my weekly class while I was away.

Saturday everyone slept in till 8:30am!! Unheard of!! Both kids! It was wonderful!! Once we got going, we headed to a nearby children's store to try out car seats. We are thinking of getting a new seat for Audrey and Leo taking Audrey's. She isn't outgrowing hers yet by any means and I actually love her seat but I found a good deal on a seat that will last her much longer and it just makes sense to buy it rather than 2 more of the same seat for Leo.

Afterwards we braved Costco which actually wasn't too horrible although my wallet definitely complained! We found a bunch of Christmas gifts, plus bought a new shag rug that I promised myself I could get once we found a new home for Milo. We puzzled it all into our vehicle which was quite the feat considering we also had the stroller in the trunk!

Playing on the plush new rug!
Hubby had to work for a few hours in the afternoon so I did a bunch of organizing while he was out and the kids napped. I also did some more Christmas shopping online so I'm getting closer to being done.

We had a fairly relaxing night- just watched The Good Wife.

Sunday, again everyone slept in! For the first time ever, I was up before everyone since I was meeting my running group for a 10K run. Audrey slept till 8am and Leo slept till 9:15am! They must have really missed their beds or something!

I had a decent run. It started off chilly, -5C (but felt like -11C) and I couldn't quite remember how to dress for that. I really need to write a "cheat sheet" for myself on how to dress for the weather. I definitely could have used another layer and a warmer headband. I was freezing for the first 4K and so thankful that I had my hood to keep my head warmer. I ran half of it with Howard, our trusty pacer who despite his long stride he never lets me feel like I'm going too slowly. The second half I ran with someone I just met, Carol. It was nice to chat with someone new and swap running stories. So glad I have this great running group to keep me motivated.

After our run, hubby and the kids met us at Tim's for our post-run refuel.

Trying on Big Sis' hat- Gangster Baby!!
Audrey devoured her breakfast and may have spilled her apple juice all over her Daddy's lap!

That night we went to my sis' house for dinner, to celebrate my Mom's birthday, which is today. Sadly, I left my phone in the car so no pictures, except one from my nephew of him, his dad and Leo.

These guys are like the baby whisperers, except when we first handed Leo to my brother-in-law last night, he started bawling! He's really started on the separation anxiety. Most of the time babies love these guys and they love baby cuddles.

It was so nice to see my family. We don't get to see them enough it seems. Wish they lived a little bit closer.

Again, today, the kids both slept in until 8:30! Granted we didn't get home until 9pm last night so they both went to bed late. Today we are having a lazy day- hanging out at home, and cooking since we have a busy week planned.


  1. SO jealous of all the sleep ins! But you deserve it :) A now is in the habit of waking up by 6:30am on weekends too, I am hoping she learns that she can sleep in those days soon lol.
    I agree, running groups are great for training!

  2. You should share your cheat sheet. I keep telling myself I want to continue running through the winter but have no idea how to dress myself and thus haven't been out yet since the snow fell :/

  3. I can never remember how to dress for cold runs either. Tomorrow is supposed to be my first morning run in the SNOW so I need to dig out my shoe grips again tonight!

  4. Sounds like a great weekend! So nice of the kids to spoil you with sleep ins :)

  5. Those rugs from Costco are awesome! We have one in our living room - it's co cozy :)

  6. LOVE those rugs! They are the best! It's so cozy. I am so glad the kids slept in, how nice!! I just dont' run in the winter! Problem solved! ha ha
