Cold, Ice and Snow

I have officially hit my wall of being sick and tired of the cold. It's 8 degrees currently here in St. Louis and I am OVER it! 

Friday -

It was well known in St. Louis that we were expecting to get some crummy weather all weekend long. The forecast was predicting freezing rain and snow sometime during Friday and into Saturday. I had lunch plans with Ali, but we decided to cancel due to the stupid winter weather, bummer. When I left work at 3:30 PM, the weather hadn't started yet (thankfully) and I met Andy over at the Toyota dealership to get the 10,000 mile maintenance done on the Prius. We chose to drop the car off overnight because who has time to sit in a dealership to get maintenance done on your car? Not this girl! We then picked Luke up at the daycare and headed home. The rest of the evening was filled with making and eating dinner and play with little dude. I fell asleep around 9 PM in bed with the TV on. Andy "woke" me up sometime later where I apologized in my sleep numerous times that I fell asleep with the TV on. Note: this isn't the first or last time I'll ever do that. Seriously, who apologizes multiple times in their sleep?!??!! LOL
Saturday - 

Little dude started stirring around 6 AM and the ever awesome husband of mine got up with Luke so that Mommy could sleep in a bit. Brownie points to Andy! :) I woke up around 7:30 that morning. I could have slept longer, but I just feel guilty sleeping in too much now. I'd rather spend that time with my family. Andy made us breakfast (pancakes and bacon) and we had fun just lounging around the house. 

Luke was getting sleepy and needed a nap and I decided that we start having Luke take his naps in his crib. As silly as that sounds, we just don't have him nap in the crib because we are either on the go all weekend long or he would just fall asleep in his bouncer or on top of me. The crib naps are going OK, it's just going to take him a little bit getting use to. I get it's tough on him because this only happens 2 days out of the week since he is at daycare the other 5 days. 

When he woke up from his nap we all got dressed and headed out to run a couple errands, grab some lunch at Freddie's Steakburgers and picked the Prius up. Thankfully Luke is a great car napper and took his second nap of the day during our errand runs. 

That night we decided to eat dinner after Luke went to sleep because we had eaten later than normal. Andy picked us up some Jimmy Johns and we watched a movie together. 

Sunday - 

I got up with little dude at 6:30 AM and Daddy wasn't too far behind at 7 AM. I watched a cheesy Hallmark movie, "So You Said Yes" and didn't do much besides moving laundry around. I loathe laundry by the way..... Around 10:30 AM I called my mom to find out if she was dressed and ready to go out. She laughed and said, "It's only 10:30 AM" I said, "Exactly, I've been up for 4 hours already!" Boy how have times changed!!

We went out to lunch at a mexican restaurant, and shopped at Kohl's and Dierbergs. I used my Kohl's cash plus a $10 off $30 purchase and picked up Luke 4 summer creepers/rompers (this (in blue), this (in blue monster and grey baseball), and this (in red) in size 18 months) to wear. All 4 of those for $14!! WINNING! Can I also mention HOW HARD it is to purchase clothes ahead of the time for this kid!?!! Seriously, he is wearing 9 AND 12 month clothing at 5 1/2 months old! He's going to be in 5T at his 1st Birthday.....this kid is so tall!  

That afternoon we spent cleaning up around the house, moving furniture around (living room reveal with new furniture to come once all the furniture comes in) and just getting ready for the week. We also made another batch of sweet potatoes for little dude. 2 bags of organic sweet potatoes from Trader Joe's, just for my little man! It took a lot of work (my wrist was killing me) but with the help of Andy, we got it all done. :) I took lots of photos and plan on posting about making your own baby food too!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and much luck that your week goes just as well! :)

We aren't as cold as that here but we are experiencing very icy and freezing conditions. It's not fun at all! Sending warmer vibes your way!

Ugh, we are SO sick of the horrible weather here in NY too. We have mountains and mountains of snow banks that it's hard to turn when driving.

Luke has the greatest facial expressions - love them all!

Oooh, can't wait to see your new furniture and living room! I love decorating around the house.
