Hi friends! How was the weekend? Hope you had a great one. 🙂 Did you watch the Beyonce bowl? I missed 98% of the actual game but you can bet I watched the halftime show, and it was everything. Queen Bey, Coldplay and Bruno Mars?! Yesss to all of these things. Also, Lady Gaga. I bow down.
Our weekend was a pretty great one, and on Friday, I got to have a little lunch date with the Pilot after my doc appointment. We went to California Pizza Kitchen, and I got the Moroccan chicken salad, which had butternut squash, dates, avocado, carrots, beets, cranberries, egg, chicken, olives and romaine. It was SO good; I can’t wait replicate it for an easy lunch.
The adventures of postpartum doctors appointments continue, with another one tomorrow. I’ll post more about it on the TMI page aka the Family page later this week.
Livi’s first daughter dance was on Friday! She had been looking forward to it for a couple of weeks, and was so excited that I found a dress in her favorite color. Her words, “This is exactly what I wanted.” Mom points. I take it when I can haha.
It was so much fun to pick up her corsage, which the florist made super tiny for her teeny wrists:
do her hair
and get her all ready to go! They were quite a pair together, and the Pilot said it was the cutest thing he’d ever seen. I got to see a bit of the setup since I dropped off cupcakes for the event, and I was blown away. The DJ was there getting ready and the room was ornately decorated with silver and gold, with beautiful centerpieces, a huge dance floor, and flashing lights. It put some of my high school dances to shame haha. The Pilot said he figured that they’d get there, Liv would dance on his feet for a few dances, they’d have some cupcakes and call it a night. Not quite. Liv saw her best friend and ran off with her to the dance floor. She was dancing with all of her little friends, until the Pilot could finally sneak in a few dances with her.
He took a lot of fun pics, but I have to share this one even though it’s blurry. It’s too good. Livi getting down on the dance floor with her BFF.
Arm up in the air? I have no idea where she got that one….
P and I held it down here at the casa.
My date was crashed by 7pm, so I watched Downton Abbey and got some writing done until the party animals came home.
Saturday was pretty relaxing. We each got in a workout at the gym, where I did PBB strength circuits while listening to the POSH podcast, and climbed on this death machine for a while.
I was sweating from my wrists, which is always a sign of a good workout.
We also had a date night! Betsy’s husband planned a surprise birthday dinner at Fleming’s. He did such a great job organizing everything, and Betsy was so surprised. She thought she was going to a work function for his job, but instead, they opened the doors to the banquet room and it was filled with friends yelling, “Surprise!” The best.
It was our first time at Fleming’s, even though we had one right by our house in Tucson.
The food was outta control.
I didn’t get pics of everything, but here is the seafood tower of my dreams:
and the dessert!
Everything was wonderful, but the best part was the jalapeño potatoes. I want to live in them. As delicious as the food was, the company was even better. It was a great night.
We hung out Sunday morning, and Livi and I spent the afternoon together while the Pilot and P did the grocery haul. We went to Build-A-Bear, which I thought would be totally empty, but it turns out that there are a lot of adults who are serious about making Build-A-Bears. She made the cutest doll for herself and also a bear for Miss P. We went to Starbucks for cake pops, and enjoyed spending some time just the two of us.
Hope you’re having a wonderful day and I’ll see ya in the morning! I’ve had a few requests to do a whole day from start to finish. I can’t promise how exciting it will be haha. 🙂
