Hey, hey! Happy Sunday to you!
Quinn is taking a nap and Mal is out running errands, so I thought I’d pop in and share some fun stuff from our weekend so far. Ok, here we go, in no particular order, the best of our weekend!
DATE NIGHT WITH MY FAVORITE GUYS. By Friday, we didn’t have much food in our house, so we decided to go out to dinner at Scarlet Oak Tavern, which was an excellent decision.
It was also a fun way to end the week, especially since Q-Man was in such a great mood. He’s usually pretty good when we take him out to dinner, but you never know what to expect with a toddler. We actually had a dining out experience last weekend when, as soon as our food was served to the table, we asked to take it home. It was one of those meals. But, Quinn was awesome at Scarlet Oak. He just ate and hung out with us. He also had a blast playing hide-and-go-seek with the tablecloth!
I ordered the kale salad with goat cheese, a side of French fries, and a glass of wine for dinner. Balance, baby.
SATURDAY MORNING LONG RUN. I missed my long run last week, so I was really looking forward to this one and it did not disappoint. I listened to Diane and Liz for the first hour and then turned on my tunes and picked up the pace for the remaining 50 minutes. It was glorious. I typically enjoy tempo and interval runs more than long runs, but sometimes a long run is exactly what you need!
AFTERNOON NAP WITH MY LITTLE LOVE. The best. He’s turning into such a cuddle bug. Finally! Mama’s dreams are finally coming true!
SHOPPING WITH MY FAVORITE LITTLE PERSON. Quinn and I hit up the Derby Street Shoppes for some shopping on Saturday afternoon. (Check out my new bag, which is even more amazing in person! And check out how organized it is inside! Even Quinn was impressed.)
We popped into Crate & Barrel to buy a boot tray and then headed over to Barnes & Noble for story hour and a little more shopping.
There was so much to see and TOUCH!
The toddler love for Elmo is REAL.
BIRTHDAY CAKE ICED TEA. It ordered it from David’s Tea and it was so delicious! I want to try the iced tea latte next!
TINY 7 FOR ALL MANKIND JEANS. Quinn’s first pair of designer jeans! And, ohmigod, they are adorable. I bought them from thredUP (new with tags!) for a fraction of the retail price. He’s going to be so stylish!
“BAALL!” Quinn learned a new word over the weekend! It sort of sounds like he has a southern accent when he says it!
