I have to say, I don’t have all that much of an update for this weekend. I do want to share some pictures from my baby “luncheon” at work last week. It was amazing! Even though it wasn’t on a weekend. :) There were bunnies galore and we dined on Barbaritos. What wasn’t to love?
As for the actual weekend, it was pretty low key, for the most part. Lots of work on Friday, dinner with good friends Friday night, and a busy Saturday at Maiden South on Saturday!
We had a HUGE sale as part of the Downtown Bainbridge Sidewalk Sale (except we put our sale next door in our Crafty Class room). And the good news is… It ain’t over! I won’t be there, but all the sale items remaining will be back out this coming Saturday, too! Some insanely good deals here, peeps. Get a jump on Mother’s Day or treat yo self. Just sayin’.
I won’t be there because this next weekend, baby K is getting showered with love yet again – this time hostessed by my good girlfriends from high school, Sarah and Jessica, and their sweet Mama (the originator of the best chicken salad ever that I posted about way back when)! I cannot WAIT!
The rest of the weekend I knitted a wee bit, gardened a wee bit (replaced pansies with summer and full-sun friendly dianthus and lantana, plus a couple of impatiens), did some laundry, hung a couple pictures, and more mundane things of the domestic/nesting persuasion. I have to brag on Wheat though – he hung shelves in the baby’s closet this weekend AND cooked all our meals. He is becoming quite the grill master on his new grill and this girl is NOT complaining!
The shelves aren’t fancy, but neither were the other wire ones that came with the place. ;) And the fabric bins (of which I need a few more) are yet another Dollar General score. This is true life – closet edition right here. It’s a whole lot less cute than the nursery itself! But I was really excited about the shelves.
I will have to get Wheat to share the recipe for these chicken thighs – they were amazing! I do know that he seared them in a Hugh Jass cast iron skillet right on the grill, and then carmelized the onions and lemons in there with them. DELICIOUS. The veggies were leftovers that he grilled Saturday evening. Can’t go wrong with grilled squash.
The only other excitement in my weekend was that my brother-in-law delivered my baby cradle today! My parents had it made for me when I was a baby, then of course my sister slept in it, then my niece Elah slept in it, and now our baby will get to sleep in it too. It’s now in our bedroom and awaiting the UPS man to deliver a new mattress. Until then, I’m obsessed with this sweet cotton blanket with woodland critters woven into it that a dear co-worker sent us. It’s precious – thank you so much Cindy!
