Weekend Recap

**I'm running late this morning because I was busy shopping the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale- have you or do you plan on shopping it? The prices cannot be beat!!  I picked up two Elsa tops for the price of one.  I think they'll be great for post-baby and next spring.  I held off buying anything else because I'm not sure what size I'll be after two babes in less than two years in dresses and shorts.  If I had a daughter I would be screwed!**

Did you all have a good weekend? Ours went by way too fast but was nice and low key.  Thanks for all your advice on the shoes and face wash/moisturizer.  I will keep you posted on what I decide to do.

We've been having the best weather here in the morning and evenings.  I decided to take advantage of the cool weather and break out some of my fall items. Wearing my maternity clothes isn't the most exciting but it's a nice change. 

Striped maternity shirt from H&M last year

I'm still obsessed with this snakeskin band Timex watch I've had for a few years. It's hard to keep the bump out of photos these days.

Kyle didn't get home from his business trip until 10pm on Friday night so I just caught up on bad reality tv and cleaning on Friday night. #soglamorous 

On Saturday we ventured over to Maryland's eastern shore to have lunch with two of my college roommates. It was great to see them but attempting to catch up with two babies in toe is tough.  We ended up in a horrible traffic jam due to an accident on the bay bridge on the way over so what should have been a 40 minute drive took 1.5 hours.   Then Miller had an epic screaming meltdown like I've never seen before. It took me a good 5 minutes to calm him down outside and I still don't know what caused it. I was about to strip him naked in the parking lot because I was convinced he was being stung by bees under his clothes that's how bad it was. 

Thankfully he recovered and we were able to return to lunch and catch a few pictures of the group. 
Happy boy post meltdown :) also baby Toms might be my favorite 



On Saturday night we stayed home and grilled out.  We are trying to take advantage of our deck and grill as much as we can before summer wraps up.  The weather was again cool and perfect so I threw on some leggings and a long sleeve tee after dinner to  stay warm.
Try not to be jealous of my lemonade ;) 

Sunday morning Miller was up at 4:30am!!!!! He was wide awake and nothing would get him back to sleep. These early mornings do not mesh well with my pregnancy insomnia that keeps me up until midnight.
Those are his toys in our bedroom, do you love the fancy box we keep them in? #reallife

Once he went down for his morning nap at 7:30am I headed out to Target and Wegmans to get some grocery shopping done.  Not before I stopped for a nice iced coffee (and possibly a donut). Grocery shopping alone is phenomenal and it felt great to have so much accomplished before 10am on a Sunday. 


The rest of Sunday was spent cleaning, baking, and playing at the pool.  I made another homemade banana bread only this one was much better than last weeks.  Last week I went the Cooking Light route this week I went full fat banana bread. Breads and desserts are not made to be light.  The one from cooking light was super dry and this one is so moist and delicious. You can find the recipe here.

  1. This looks like a nice weekend! Your pregnancy style is so cute but I do understand getting into a rut and being excited for new seasons and new clothes! I'm sorry that you had such a miserable car ride (and that something really bothered Miller!) but looks like you had a nice time catching up with friends! Why have a not thought about keeping a box of toys in our room so that we can keep sleeping after the kids wake up? Definitely doing that!!

  10. Mmm now I'm craving banana bread! And I totally agree.. "light" versions of baked goods aren't even really worth the calories. I'd rather have a smaller amount of the good tasting, bad for you stuff!

  11. I used to make banana bread all the time (now we eat them too fast). I love Martha's recipe because it makes 2 loaves at one time. And I love it slathered with Nutella! You look adorable! Sorry the traffic sucked for lunch. I get so frustrated with traffic where we live that I always take pictures of it to send to Chris to say we have to move! I hope whatever upset Miller doesn't happen again - poor guy! And I missed out on all the Little Lilly's! One jumped from my cart right as I checked out :(.

  12. Baby Tom's are the most delicious little shoes EVER! I love your bump peeking it every picture (bump envy!) and that watch! I am also so super jealous of your solo grocery trip... I dream of doing that.. and at Weggie's (NJ needs to get with it!)
