our week by iPhone - week 40

this is gonna be short & sweet friends.  i'm coming at ya at 11:30pm on friday night & sam & i have just spent the majority of our night online shopping the cost of local meat & laughing at weird things on pinterest.  be jealous.  but now i'm exhausted & i have a little boy who's been fighting a fever the last two days & may or may not wake up at 5:30 tomorrow morning... again.

so let's recap this last week.  it was a good one.

monday was spent playing with cow figures in the sawdust after stroller strides, eating delicious healthy lunches, & reading books with sam before bed.

sidenote: am i alone in my love for sprouts on sandwiches?  they may be one of my top five favorite sandwich things.  and when it comes to sandwiches?  that's a list that means something.

tuesday morning we got our workout on & parker hung out with the big kids on the playground.

then he woke up super giggly & giddy from his nap & was mr. enthusiastic at trader joe's.  he gets really excited about good deals on fresh produce.

and apparently he reaalllly liked his bath.  i have no answers for this.  your guess is as good as mine.

wednesday parker hung out with his fun baby-sitter while i went to work & tried to look professional in a red hoodie.  is that even possible?  a quick lunch-time pedicure was a much needed picker-upper on a blah day.

and so was a family trip to the park where p-ray pushed around his stroller, dug in the dirt with a stick, & played some b-ball with sam.

thursday.  this is me looking very happy.  parker slept in until 9 o'clock thursday morning!  everyone jump for joy.  later we hit up the craft store to pick out some fabric for a little pinterest-inspired decoration to go in parker's room.  who's that putting their pinterest pins to work?  it's me.  it's me!

thursday night was spent bbq-ing with friends {clearly parker was a hit with the ladies} & hanging out on the floor with sam.

friday.  parker woke up with aforementioned fever quite early & i bought some additional lazy time for myself by bribing him with 'toons.  despite said fever, we got out & hit up stroller strides & the farmer's market with friends... where i paid an arm & a leg for pork roast but can rest assured that pig led a happy grassy field filled life before his tasty pulled-pork-self resides in my belly.

then sam came home & parker celebrated by watching at least four videos of himself on the iPhone.  it's kind of his favorite thing.  friday night was spent having dinner at chipotle {for the first time!} & dessert at fro-yo.

it really doesn't get much better than that.  seriously.

  1. Oh man you always snap THE cutest pictures of Parker! The one of him in the shopping cart at the craft store?? I died a little bit. You're definitely going to have to share what you're crafting up for his room.

  2. Dude, the ballcap kills me, it's just too much cuteness! If we ever have a boy I will obviously have to buy ballcaps for him pronto! Hope he is feeling better, we have all been under the weather, too and it is NO fun. Actually, as I type this it is 5 am on Saturday so that tells you how much sleep this family is getting!

  3. Uh, Chipotle's chicken soft tacos are to DIE for!!! So good and I haven't had them in forever.....And of course your uber cute kiddo is to die for too!!!

  4. I love sprouts on sandwiches! Can't wait to see your Pinterest craft when you are done. Parker is so cute pushing the cart and the stroller!!

  5. Yup, it's official. He gets cuter every single day.

  6. sprouts on sandwiches = gloriousness!! and I agree...Parker gets cuter every day :)

  7. I am now extra jealous that you have a Trader Joe's, just because of the tiny shopping cart. My kid would FLIP. I hope P-Ray is feeling better!!

  8. Love love LOVE all of your captures. I also love the vintage-y tones. Your photos look super wonderful! It's been a long time since I've participated but this is one of my favorite parts of the week. Hooray :)

  9. what!! is that a fri pic of sam smiling!! :) WOW! You really are a great photographer. haha. Fun week!

  10. Jealous of Stroller Strides. I wanted to do it so badly when I was on maternity leave, but the time was right in the middle of their nap. And, now of course, I work. Sigh...

    And I love sprouts on my sandich or wrap. LOVE it. However, I only buy it out. I hate making sandwiches at home. They are never as good. Or salads for that matter. I'm weird.

  11. Local Food List & Zaycon Foods. This week my mom and I are sharing 40 pounds of 93/7 ground beef that is all local through Zaycon. $2.79 a pound. Too late to order though I believe.

  12. That sandwich from Monday looks amazing. You are not alone, I love sprouts's so bad that people always joke if they see something with sprouts on/in it on a menu they know that's what I'll order. I just can't help myself :)

  13. Linking up kinda late, but better late than never, right? Right! Love your pics. Your son is seriously beyond adorable!

  14. looks like a good week to me!!parker looks so adorable wearing hats! :)

  15. 9 am?!?! So jealous! And I want to see what you made from Pinterest :)

  16. I'm totally with you on the sprouts. I almost always have them in my fridge for wraps and sandwiches.

  17. Parker does the cutest things! The picture of him in the bath, and with his arms up in the shopping cart...oh my goodness. He's such a cute little goofball.

  18. Week 40!!! If iphone pics were your baby, they'd be due any day now ;)
    Seriously, I love seeing how active you are throughout the week and hearing about all of the fresh, healthy food you're buying for your family! I loooove food, and I'm learning to love healthier foods :)

  19. This was such a cute post!

    I hope Parker's feeling better. I may have to participate this week.

  20. I've only ever had sprouts on my sandwiches from Jimmy Johns, but I love it from there just never thought to buy it for my house. It looks like you had a lovely week, I'm really loving your dark hair. I want to dye mine darker but I just haven't built up the courage yet.

  21. Sprouts are definitely one of my must have toppings for sandwiches too! i never get them for home though because it freaks me out when they start to turn brown after a day or so.

  22. what a cute family! :) You are gorgeous!

  23. You are not alone in the sprouts department. I love them on my sandwiches.

    I've heard great things about Chipotle. I've never been there myself but I've been wanting to go for a while now. Too bad we don't have one close to us. :(

  24. Great pics! I love your layout for your weekly cell phone pics. Parker is adorable in every one, love him in the baseball cap!

    Regarding sprouts, they're good peoples.
