- A Sadie and Chase update! This one has been a long-time coming but I finally had the chance to sit down and type up my thoughts about their ever-changing relationship on Friday afternoon. Stay tuned for this post tomorrow morning!
- Our first adventures in sleep training. I wasn’t sure if this would be of interest but a bunch of you asked me to dive into the details of our first sleep training experience. (Clearly baby sleep is overwhelming to many! I feel ya!!) A post about our first 1.5 weeks of sleep training will be up this week, too.
So far my sleep training post is 1,500+ words. Yeesh. I’ll try to break it up with some pictures for ya! And hopefully I’ll be able to pop in with a little update on our week on Thursday as well. That’s the plan, Stan.
Anyway, back to the weekend…
Friday night was another low key one around here. Relaxing Friday nights at home seem to be a theme around here these past two weeks and I’d be lying if I said that didn’t make me 100 percent thrilled. I swear I get just as excited for a chill night at home as I do for a big social shebang.
Our Friday night in a nutshell: We watched Pirates of the Caribbean on Netflix and I ate peanut butter out of the jar. Get crazyyyy!
Saturday morning began at Burn Boot Camp but my morning workout was a little more fun thanks to my friend Carrie who came along!
I met Carrie through my first Stroller Strides class in January and she quickly became one of my favorite play date buddies. (Her daughter Lilly is about two months younger than Chase and she is adorable.) After hearing me rave about it, Carrie expressed interest in boot camp, so we made plans to meet up for a 9 a.m. workout date on Saturday.
(My Fitbit Surge was a Christmas present from Ryan – he’s been obsessed with his Surge for months – and I LOVE it. It’s without a doubt the best activity tracker I’ve tried to date.)
The workout on the agenda for Saturday morning was a plyometric workout and it was jam-packed with tons of jumping. It was a cardio killer and I was thrilled when Carrie said she loved it! Does anyone else get kind of nervous when they invite a friend to try their favorite workout? It’s not like my feelings would be hurt if they didn’t like it or anything, but I feel like I want it to be extra awesome when I invite someone to come along to try a workout I love, ya know?
Carrie is signing up for the Groupon for a one-month membership and I’m excited to have a new workout buddy joining me at boot camp! (FYI for locals, the Burn Boot Camp Groupon is a great deal and gives you unlimited access to BBC classes for only $35! They have locations all over the Charlotte area, so just type Burn Boot Camp in the Groupon search bar to find the location closest to you.)
After my workout, I came home, fed Chase and put him down for a nap before taking a much-needed shower.
(And that is how a new mama feels when she makes it out of the house on time with a baby…)
Kevin and Chandra are two of our favorite people here in Charlotte and even though we are psyched for them and the exciting opportunities that await them in their new hometown, we will really miss our friends a lot.
Chandra’s friend Jessica was also in town visiting and our group chatted away over chips and guacamole and lots of delicious food. Chase couldn’t be bothered with the tacos and quesadillas because he had more important things to do, like stare at ceiling fans and lights.
After lunch, our little group made a pit stop for the essentials to make Moscow Mules and mimosas before heading back to our house for a game day that bled into a game night!
Carrie and her husband Nick and their daughter joined us around 4 p.m. as well and we had a blast!
We played BANG! which began as a bit of a hot mess as Kevin tried to explain the many rules to the newbies of the group but it quickly morphed into an awesome time after we played one round and got the hang of it.
We eventually ordered pizza around 6 p.m. and spent the rest of the night enjoying quality time with friends.
I’m actually typing up this post at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday morning, so I’m not sure what Sunday entails for us just yet, but I’ll be sure to check back in later in the week with more updates.
I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and are having a great Monday so far!
