Happy second Monday in October everybody! It’s still so surreal that it’s already the second Monday of the month, especially since it’s still so hot in Texas so it doesn’t feel like fall, plus it just means that I’m that much closer to my due date! I’m already 33 weeks, and it still doesn’t feel real! I’m hoping to get another bumpdate up this week, so hopefully you can look for that on Friday. Anyways, in true Monday fashion, it’s time for a little weekending with the always fabulous Biana!
Things were going really well at work with our quarter end close, but with the Astros playoff game potentially ending right around the time that I normally get off work, I decided to head out of the office about 5 minutes early. It was so nice because I was able to get out of the office and home at a decent time.
Our neighborhood has started up Food Truck Fridays again, which I think happens every other week or once a month, but basically they get a whole bunch of Food Trucks at the front of the neighborhood with some music and basically gives everybody a chance to get together and eat some food. Chris and I had never been, but thought that it’d be a fun way to spend our Friday night so we decided to go.
They had about 6 or 7 food truck there and Chris and I had fun getting to try a little bit from a few different ones. We tried some tacos and empanadas, and then of course we couldn’t pass up cupcakes for dessert. It was also a lot of fun to see how many young parents there were in the neighborhood, and surreal to think that in just a few short months that’ll be us!
We spent the rest of the night just relaxing at home and watching movies that were on TV. It was nice to have a quiet night at home without any plans after having such a busy past few weeks.
Sleeping in has definitely been a priority the past few weekends since I know that it’ll be in short supply once the babies get here, and this weekend was no different. I slept in a little bit Saturday morning before waking up to shower and head over to my friend Sarah’s house. It had seriously been forever since we’d gotten to hang out, and this weekend couldn’t have been more perfect.
I drove over to her house and spent the afternoon just hanging out with her and her daughter. We had some Chick-fil-A for lunch and then just hung out at their house for the afternoon talking about anything and everything, although there was a lot of baby talk, and we started watching the second season of Fuller House and even snuck in some Real Housewives in there too! We had such a good time that we decided to do the same thing next weekend! I already can’t wait!
I came home later that afternoon, and Chris and I watched the Aggie game. To be honest, neither one of us had high hopes for actually beating Bama, so I think that we were both pleasantly surprised with how well we played against the Tide and how close the game actually was. Were you at least a little bit nervous Nadine?
One thing that I really want to do before too long is get some freezer meals ready for when the girls get here, so Chris and I went through a lot of our recipes and we figured out which ones we want to make and got our grocery list ready during the game. Now we just need to buy everything and start prepping!
Surprisingly we slept in again Sunday morning before finally waking up and getting the day started. We hadn’t received our coupon to complete our registry yet, but we went on ahead and made our way to Buy Buy Baby to get everything else that we needed from our registry. The people at the store were very nice and gave us our coupon at the store and also gave us our twin discount as well because we seriously have no idea when the girls could get here.
The rest of the afternoon we spent running errands and grocery shopping before heading home for the day. We had a lot of baby stuff that was just sitting in the game room so we went on ahead and got all of that organized along with getting everything put away in the nursery. Literally everything is done and ready for the babies to get here, except for getting the hospital bags ready to go. I’m hoping to get that done sometime this week or next weekend, and then all we have to do is wait! So crazy!
After going so much the past few weeks it was really nice to just have a weekend at home to get baby stuff done and to relax for a little bit too. Once our sweet girls get here I know that we’ll be so excited, but I also know that we’ll be super busy, so I’m trying to soak in as much relaxing and doing nothing until they get here. So the next few weekends will probably not be very exciting around these parts, but I know that we’ll definitely be enjoying them!
Did you have a fun weekend? Does your neighborhood have Food Truck events?
