Hello! Good morning!

Just some pics from the last couple of the days…

Mal and I went out to lunch on Monday afternoon and we had such a nice time. He’s so fun. And, hey, we’ve had two dates in two months””not too shabby!

We went to The Met Bar & Grill at Legacy Place. We had some errands to run there, so we incorporated lunch too.

Wine with lunch? Yes, please!

Mal and I shared some tacos as an appetizer.

And then I ordered the turkey chili as my entree. Both dishes were quite tasty!

Yesterday, Quinn and I had a fun day together. We ran some errands, took some nice, long naps (him not me) and ate all sorts of delicious food (both of us).

We also played, played, played and played some more! (This kid is already such a goober. He’s “talking” up a storm, and it’s so fun acting silly with him!)

Remember when I said I didn’t want a house with a million kid toys all over the place? Um, yea. Quinn is only 7 months old and he has SO MANY TOYS. And it’s mostly my fault. I can’t help myself. I see something and just know he’ll love it, so I buy it. It happened again yesterday, and I bought him two more toys. Oops.

In the late afternoon, I ran on the treadmill at KFIT. I did a hill workout (15/7 hills/15), which took me 58 minutes (6.32 miles). I felt kind of blah during it and even walked a couple of times, but, hey, the bad runs make you appreciate the good ones, right?

Last night’s dinner: Sweet Potato Shepard’s Pie (although I used a couple of regular potatoes to use them up)! So delicious!

After dinner, Mal and I bought a couple of tickets to visit Seattle with Quinn in February. Cross-country flight with an infant? Yikes. We’re nervous. Please tell us it’s going to be okay!

Question of the Day

Any tips for flying with an infant? 

I think we have the car seat/stroller thing figured out (we still need to get covers – any recommendations?), but any and all advice is welcomed! A few things to know about Quinn: If he is awake, he is moving, he loses interest in most toys after 5 minutes (books typically keep his attention – thank goodness), and he has zero interest in TV. He reminds me of Buddy the Elf at the doctor when we need him to sit still. Haha! We’re in for a real adventure!
