our week by iPhone - week 78

pretty much another awesome busy week in these parts.  life has been nothing but go-go-go around here lately & it doesn't show any signs of stopping any time soon.  we've had pretty awesome seattle weather which means lots of time outdoors during the day & catching up on everything else at night.

i've really slacked on checking out blogs & returning emails & comments these last couple weeks so i'm feeling a little outta the loop.  someday i'll catch up on everything & be on top of it all, right?  ha!  i wish.

here's what was keeping us busy this week.

monday.  as every pregnant girl knows, there comes a time when you hit that magical stage in your pregnancy when the doctor informs you it's time to check your glucose tolerance.  so on this beautiful day i got to sit in my doctor's office for an hour & sip the most sweetest orangey sugary drink & then have a needle poked in me to draw blood for testing.

weird that i look forward to it?  no, & i'll tell you why.  parker was at a friend's so this hour was filled with headphones & good music & time on my laptop cranking out some editing.  the drink is very reminiscent of the mcdonald's orange hi-c we all drank as kids or a melted orange freezy pop.  in short?  delicious.

that evening parker took his spot waiting for sam to get home so we could head to the park for a walk.  there was ice cream eating, bench sitting & fish-watching.

tuesday.  we hit up some stroller strides on another gorgeous day.  also?  i can't resist taking a thousand pictures of parker now that he is forward facing in his carseat... i pretty much think he's the cutest little human to have sat in a carseat EVER.

tuesday evening i whipped up a batch of my favorite chipotle-chicken-avocado salad.  and by "whipped up" i mean spent an hour making what the recipe calls a "10 minute meal."  whatever.

then we all got lazy & hung out & slept with our arms behind our heads.

wednesday.  another gorgeous day, another workout in the sun.  i also spent a decent amount of time on tuesday shopping for a baby-boy doll for parker to have as his "baby" since he's so obsessed with babies & i figure it'd be good to teach him some baby-etiquette.  but no such luck.  turns out every freaking baby on the market is a baby girl & dressed in all pink.  c'mon target & toys r us... where all the boys at??

then there were crazy bath antics... pretty standard.

thursday.  i'm telling you, anything this kid does in his carseat is pure gold to me.  he enjoyed a little light reading on the way to his babysitter's thursday morning & i promise you it was probably the cutest thing i've ever seen.  at that moment.

once i was at work baby boy #2 gave me lots of kicks in the belly to let me know he wanted a burrito from my favorite taco bus for lunch.  who am i to say no?  that taco bus is legitimately legit.

friday.  another sunny-day workout, another few hours in the park.  this week is spoiling us rotten... i might cry the next time it rains.  parker spent quality time going down slides & staring up at trees until it was time to head home for naps.  sam got home in time to climb in bed with us for the tail end of nap-time which obviously turned into family wrestle-time.  it's what happens when those two get together.

then it was off to five guys for dinner {YUM} and cheney stadium for a rainier's game, the local AAA baseball team.  we sat in the grass on blankets & froze to death once the sun went down trying to hold out for the fireworks at the end of the game.  everyone made it through & we got to hear a little boy talking about "baseball!  fireworks!  boom boom boom!" all the way home.  so that was worth it.

happy weekend friends... enjoy your moms, ok?

  1. Looks like an awesome week, as per usual! Jealous of your beach days haha!

  2. Fun week! I am loving the sun too! Can I have your chipotle chicken salad recipe? It sounds like the perfect summer meal!

  3. tell me about the boy clothing dilemma! it's annoying!

  4. You're one of the first people to say they think that drink is good. I totally thought I was going to hurl after I drank it!

  5. Yes he is the cutest lil guy in a car seat!! I wasn't crazy about that glucose drink but I don't like that artificially orange kinda taste. It's nice you could enjoy it!

    I'm on instagram @oliac. I will look for you!!

  6. I got a super cheap naked baby doll from a garage sale when I was pregnant with Griffin for my big guy. He didn't care it was a "girl" doll. I also got a boy cabbage patch baby but the more realistic (and cheap ass) baby still gets played with to this day! Like... they fight over it.
    All in all, it looks like you had a great day!

  7. Err, I mean week...

  8. Looks like an awesome week! Salad recipe? Please?

  9. Oh. And AGREED on the glucose drink. Love it. And what are you talking about with the McD orange drink being from childhood? I still love it!

    Also, did I tell you I am stoked about being instagram bf's? Seriously. I am.

  10. As much as I enjoy how the glucose drink tastes it always makes me feel so very sick after! I had to do the three hour with my first pregnancy and it was rough. Way too many needle sticks! Loving your belly shot! :)

  11. Very productive week - love the 5th pic (in the Friday series) of the side of Parker's head at the game - too cute! :)

  12. What a great week! And the weather is just going to get nicer. Yay!! :)

  13. We got a doll for Calvin at babies are us. His name is dapper dan. It's the type of doll you can zip and buckle and Velcro. Closest boys doll we've ever found.

  14. I thought I was the only person who liked the glucose test drinks. And I'm so jealous of your gorgeous weather!

  15. Cute pics!!

    I couldn't find any boy babies either so I made one... But he's pretty unattractive hahah.

  16. I'm your newest Stalker. First how cute are you? I am so glad I found your cute site. xoxo Ashley @
