Our Weekend

On Friday afternoon, I sneaked out of work a little early so I could go and get my little man. We came home and played for a few minutes, then it was obviously time for him to go to bed. No matter how good he is during the day, or how long his naps are, or when he takes his naps, he is always so cranky about 30 minutes after we get home and he wants to go to bed. I guess he is just adjusting? I don't know, but we get to see him for such a small amount of time during the week that it makes me sad. But I want him to get enough sleep so I just put him to bed. Anyway. Lee took bedtime duty and I went out and attempted the first run for the Couch to 5k. I actually did it this time! Haha, I think it was my third try last week, but it was a successful one! I chose to run outside so it was extra challenging for me. I have never run outside, I always get on the treadmill. BUT this time around I actually want to try to run a 5k so I need to be used to running outdoors.

I fell asleep on the couch at 9 on Friday night. I was exhausted from the work week.

Saturday Lee went to Norman for the game, so it was just me and the buddy. He was in such a good mood all day and all smiles :) He also came thisclose to laughing for the first time! I played airplane with him on my legs for the first time and he LOVED it! So fun.
We also did a little of this
And quite a bit of this (love that little foot sticking out :) )
We also played with some new toys that we hadn't gotten out yet. Someone had given us this Baby Einstein toy that plays music and lights up and he was enamored with it each time I turned it on. It's his new favorite :)
At some point during the day, I made the huge feat of actually getting dressed and went to Target. What did I get you ask? An Assets camisole (by the makers of Spanx, but it's cheaper) that's supposed to firm your tummy flab. And brownie mix. Is something wrong with that combo? Sadly I wasn't impressed with the camisole. My tummy didn't really look any flatter, it just hid the jiggle a little more. And it rides up really easily and ends up rolled up around my waist and actually makes things look worse! I usually love their stuff so I was disappointed. Maybe a better solution is to lay off the brownies? But they're so goooood! :) I may or may not have eaten the whole pan by myself.

Sunday we went to brunch for Brooke's birthday. It was a surprise brunch and she was so surprised! Yay! I love surprise things and I'm glad that she had no idea :) At least I think she had no idea.This is what he spends the majority of his time doing. Shoving his fist in his mouth. And drooling everywhere!
This is more of what we were attempting!
After the brunch, we came home and I took a nap. I never do that but I was so tired for some reason. And I regretted doing it when I woke up. I felt so groggy and like I'd wasted my entire day, even though I really only slept for about 45 minutes. I did go to the grocery store so that was productive. AND I did my second C25K run, yay me! We made the Pioneer Woman's Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce for dinner. Oh.My.Gah. Ya'll, this was DELISH!! Run to make it! Really anything with a cup of cream in it is wonderful so you really can't go wrong :)

OH, I've also decided that I'm getting rid of my MacBook. I have finally admitted out loud that I hate it :( I feel like I'm crazy because EVERYONE loves their Mac, and also because I was SO determined to get one. But, when it comes down to it, I cannot figure out some of the major stuff that I use a computer for. And I know that I could TRY to learn, but I have tried to teach myself and that clearly hasn't worked, and I'm not spending hours at the Apple store to learn a darn computer when I could just get a PC and be done with it. Lee is not a fan of my decision but it is what it is.

Here's to hoping we all have a great week!

Oh, I should really make that pasta!! I have tons and tons of tomatoes from the garden that I hate to see go to waste, so I could food processor them up and then do the rest of the recipe! AND, I even have cream at home because I made pumpkin soup this weekend. I usually leave the cream out, but now that I am going to get fat anyway, I decided to add the cream this time, and I really dont know if I can go back now :)
Cooper looks so happY!! I like all the babes at brunch!!
Yey on the runs!!
