Happy Monday everybody and happy last week of June! It’s seriously so crazy how fast this month and this year have flown by. This weekend was another low key weekend at home, but we managed to get a lot of things done around the house, which means that I’m ready to start the week! So let’s get into a little weekending with the always amazing Biana!
Friday night was a low key night for us at the house. I had a headache all day long on Friday, so I was looking forward to just relaxing and trying to get caught up on some sleep. We watched some shows on our DVR before Chris turned on Game of Thrones and I read a little bit of my book. Before I knew it I was passed out on the couch and 10:00 had rolled around, so we turned in early for the night. I swear being pregnant is just getting me ready for the many Friday nights at home to come once the babies get here!
We woke up to some thunderstorms Saturday morning, but that didn’t stop the fun afternoon of shopping around town with my friend Stacy! She’s in town for her baby shower which I’m cohosting with some of our friends, so we got together for good old fashioned American shopping and Texas food! We started out a Buy Buy Baby so she could check out the stroller and carseat she had picked out, then did some makeup shopping at Ulta and Sephora, lunch at Torchy’s Tacos, and ended in the most basic of fashion as possible at Target. It was a great day of shopping and catching up!
Chris and I had dinner reservations later on that night with some friends of ours at a new to us restaurant, but before dinner Chris and I got one huge thing checked off our to do list, finally putting our china in the china cabinet that we bought over a year ago! Our china has literally been sitting in boxes since we got married almost 7 years ago, and since we moved into this house about 3 years ago they’ve been sitting in boxes in what will be the nursery. So obviously, this was a huge priority before the babies get here, and I’m very proud that it’s finally done! Now I feel like we need to host a dinner party so we can actually use our china!
Dinner on Saturday was with our friends Brett and Lauren at a new to us restaurant near the Galleria called State of Grace. Their menu has a little bit of everything, but it definitely has a Southern spin on most of their dishes, and oh my goodness did we eat well! We had the hushpuppies, followed by the burrata salad and the octopus, and for the main courses we had the wild boar bolognese and the duck carnitas with the brussels sprouts and eggplant for sides. We couldn’t pass up their delicious dessert menu so Chris and I shared the smoked chocolate sundae which basically tasted like ice cream and s’mores! It was the perfect way to end our amazing dinner with great friends!
Sunday morning was the morning to sleep in and I managed to sleep in until 9:00 which was awesome! The rest of the day was spent doing things around the house to get ready for the shower next weekend. I went through the pantry and reorganized it, did some laundry, got some blog work done, and tried to pick up a little around the house. For dinner Chris tried out his birthday present that I got him and made some delicious steaks, sous vide style. We have plans for another sous vide recipe this week, and I have to admit that maybe I bought Chris the sous vide for his birthday because I could get some good meals out of it as well!
Overall, it was a low key weekend at home for us, but we still managed to get a lot of things done! I hope that we continue to mark things off our list in the weeks to come because we’re definitely on a roll right now!
