Hey, hey! Happy Monday!
I can't believe Thanksgiving is just a few days away. Even though it's a short week, I have a lot jammed into it. Quinn doesn't have Early Intervention today, so I'm going to hit up CrossFit and then probably swing by the library and/or playground with him afterward. Tomorrow, I need to make a bunch of meal plans in the morning and then I have a video/photo shoot with Kerrie and Lucie. We have a number of projects in the works, so, hopefully, we can bang them all out in the afternoon. On Wednesday, we have our DTFN software meeting followed by a happy hour (yayyyy!) and then it's Turkey Day on Thursday. There's a lot happening this week, but it's all exciting stuff, so no complaints here! 🙂
Our date night on Friday was a lot fun. We met up with a couple of our friends at Station Eight in Marshfield. It was our first time there, and we mostly liked it... I mean, I think we'll visit again.
The food was just so-so, but the bar scene seemed like a lot of fun. I guess we'll probably just hit up the bar area the next time we go. We had an absolute blast with our friends though. We seriously laughed so much, and I learned quite a bit about cats that I didn't know.
At Whole Foods, Qman and I grabbed some post-workout treats: A Morning Glory Muffin for him and a Vietnamese Cold Brew (1/2 decaf) for me. After that, I bought Quinn some new sneakers, which he actually picked out himself. His shoe pick was very... neon and, ok, not my first choice, but when I asked him if he was sure they were the pair he wanted, he said: "Bye-bye" and walked toward the door. Haha! Well, ok then. Thankfully, I convinced him to stay in the store long enough so I could pay for them!
The rest of the day and evening were pretty low-key. I actually fell asleep on the couch for about 30 minutes, which was both glorious and awful at the same time. I am sooooo not a nap person. I always wake up feeling like garbage. Anyway, we rented a movie and ate ice cream that night, and it was awesome.
Yesterday morning started bright and early at 6:30 AM. Mal watched Quinn while I worked, and then we all enjoyed some Trader Joe's almond croissants and cheesy eggs for breakfast.
The boys ran errands for a couple of hours while I worked... and when they were out, a special surprise from Dave and Marie arrived in the mail.
I seriously couldn't wait to give it to Quinn when he got home! He loved it so much!!!
After that, we readied ourselves and drove to our friends' house for our 4th Annual Friendsgiving!
Hooray for Friendsgiving! And what a way to spend a Sunday! Good friends, good food, and so many good laughs! We're really lucky to have such an amazing group of friends!
