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!

The Wandering Weekenders- The Weekend Of Getting Baby Stuff Done


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? 

Pin It!

A nice relaxing weekend at home getting baby stuff done around the house. We are in full nesting mode getting ready for the twins!

    Food Truck Friday….YUM! So glad you’re taking this time to relax and you’re so good at organizing and prepping so that will be such a blessing when the darlings arrive!

  • Food trucks and Chic Fil A – YUM! It’s still be super hot here too, usually by this time it’s still warm but starting to cool off. Hoping it’ll break soon and be more comfortable for all the fall fun <3

    Hahahahaha. While I wasn’t exactly nervous during the game, I was surprised that you guys got some serious points on the board. Saban kindly reminded the fan base that not every game can be 61 to 3. Ugh. LOL.

    So exciting that you guys got so much baby stuff done!!!!! If you haven’t already….make sure you order some of the cloth diaper style burp clothes from Amazon. Kristen bought me some for Zoe and they are seriously THE BEST and ONLY burp clothes I have used…and still use daily. All the cute printed ones are fun and all, but nothing does the job like those suckers, and with two…you are going to need them!! I think these are the ones I have https://www.amazon.com/Gerber-Birdseye-3-Ply-Prefold-Diapers/dp/B007VBYVWE/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1507562509&sr=8-1&keywords=cloth+diaper+burp+clothes

    I love food trucks and getting to taste test different things!! Such a fun thing to do over the weekend! I love that the store gave you a twin discount – that is pretty amazing! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  • That food truck fair looks like so much fun- I love when you can try different things all from the same place. You’ll have to share what freezer meals you decided to make once you get everything together– it sounds like a really productive weekend in getting things picked out for the girls!

  • How fun to have the food trucks right in your neighborhood! Yay for getting so many baby things done! Only things I have left is the hospital bag and washing newborn clothes.

  • It’s been a while since I’ve eaten at a Food Truck but I think it’s always fun to taste test different foods. So exciting the girls arrival is coming up quickly. The freezer meals sounds like a great idea to prepare in advance and get all the rest while you can! xo Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  • food truck friday sounds awesome! you are so prepared and i didn’t realize we are so close in due dates (originally). i can’t wait to see these twinsies!

  • So wish Singapore did food trucks… I can’t wait to hit some up when I’m back in the States!! Sounds like a great, relaxing weekend while still getting stuff done!

  • Have you ever seen Chef? Because of that movie, I have a love of food trucks so I’m jealous of this event by you – it looks so fun! So glad for you that you have everything finished for the girls’ arrival, can’t believe they will be here soon!

  • A Food Truck Friday sounds like such a great way to meet some new neighbours (and stuff yourself with delicious food, yummm). Such a good idea! Glad you’re all organised for the babies, that must be a weight off your mind. I can’t believe they might be here soon!

  • Eek time is flying! I bet y’all go to a lot more food truck Fridays once the girls are here and you can just stroll over. I’m getting so excited for you. Also, chick fil a and fuller house sound fabulous. That show is my favourite cheesy guilty pleasure.

  • This sounds like a totally awesome weekend: hubby time, friend time, and baby prep!! You are getting so close!! yay!!!

  • Sounds like you guys had a good and productive weekend! And glad that you got to sleep in a little, too! That’s so smart to make freezer meals ahead of time. That will definitely come in handy once the girls arrive. Looking forward to your bumpdate on Friday! Have a great week, Ashley!
