Happy Memorial Day!

I hope that you’re all having a wonderful weekend.  So far, mine has been a blast!

Saturday morning started off with breakfast and a Jillian Michaels style workout (that definitely wasn’t the fun part of my weekend though).


(Puffins Original cereal with fruit, chia seeds and almond milk)


After finding out that our baby is a boy last week, let’s just say that I was slightly eager to buy his bedroom furniture.  I basically phone stalked Bellini all Saturday morning to find out their hours.

Once we learned that they were closed on Sunday and today, Michael and I ate a quick lunch and headed off to the store.

(If you’re wondering, I had an avocado and tomato sandwich on sprouted rye bread with a side of watermelon for lunch.)

To say that our trip was successful would be a severe understatement.

We bought pretty much everything we need for the room there!

Here’s a photo of the exact crib and bedding that we purchased (which will later convert into a “big boy” bed).


It is difficult to tell by the photo, but there’s light green trim around the bumper and on the crib skirt.  The sheets are also white with light green polka dots.

Trust me, it is adorable! ;)

After leaving Bellini on a baby high, we went to our friend Jenny’s 9th Annual Memorial Day Barbeque.

It was so much fun catching up with friends and meeting some of Michael’s old friends from high school.

Jenny and her husband Raymond did an amazing job and clearly have this party down to a science after hosting it for nine years.

I’m pretty sure that they even have every pig-related decoration known to man.



Who doesn’t love a cute flying pig?

You know it’s a good party when everyone around you is drinking beer and sangria while you’re drinking water- and you still have a great time!

What have you done so far this weekend?  Stay tuned tomorrow for part 2 of my weekend recap which includes an updated bump photo.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!



  1. Loving the crib set – amazed at all the things a wee one needs though! Sounds like you are having a great weekend:) Have a Great Day!

    • I know! I cannot believe how many things he needs. How can one little person need so much? Haha. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Renee!

  2. So glad we got the chance to hang out in person — it has been way too long. Let’s do it again soon! xoxox

    • It was SO great to see you! We absolutely need to get together very soon! :)

      • WORLDS COLLIDING! We all need to get together for cupcakes soon. OR, better yet, a pool day.

        • OF COURSE YOU KNOW EACH OTHER! You are both the cutest little pregnant girls I have ever seen with you sweet little bumps. Pool, cupcakes, what have you. I’m there. Name the time and place!
