Well I guess it’s a good thing, but another weekend has come and gone, and still no babies! At this point it’s very much a waiting game for us, and we’re hoping to know a lot more when we go in for another doctor’s appointment on Tuesday. This weekend was a little bit more relaxing than last weekend just because we didn’t have a whole planned, which was kind of nice. So I’m going to get into a little weekending with Biana!

The Wandering Weekenders- The Weekend Before Halloween


Like most of the city of Houston, we didn’t have a whole lot of plans for this weekend and Friday night besides watching the first World Series game with the Astros at home in Houston! I was so glad that they had won that last game in LA because it meant that we had the option to potentially close out the series at home in Houston! Thankfully the Astros were at the top of their game, I think that had a lot to do with them being at home, and we won another game! It was so much fun to watch, and I can’t even imagine actually being at the game!


Chris and I stayed up pretty late watching the game on Friday so we loved getting to sleep in Saturday morning! I actually had to set an alarm for 10, but it was so nice to sleep in, especially since I’m up several times at night to go potty. Friday at lunch Chris and I made a special trip to Sur La Table to pick up a Nespresso machine. We’d had a Tassimo for a few years after our Keurig died, and while we liked the Tassimo it was getting harder and harder to find the pods for the machine and it just wasn’t really making a full cup of coffee. We knew that we didn’t want another Keurig, so a Nespresso seemed like the next step for us. So Saturday morning Chris woke up and made himself a cup of coffee and a latte for me, and oh my goodness it was such a good latte! I know that I’ll be loving it even more one the girls get here!

After I woke up and got dressed, I headed out to have lunch with my mom and a good family friend. Her house got flooded during Hurricane Harvey so we haven’t had a chance to see each other in a while. It was really nice to get caught up, and she also brought me these beautiful Aggie quilts that she’d made for the girls that had their names monogrammed on them! I know that the girls are going to love them!

After lunch I came home and relaxed with Chris for a little bit and watched some football before heading out to an Aggie watch party. The great thing about the Aggie network is that you can literally find a group of Aggies anywhere, and luckily living so close to Aggieland means that we have lots of clubs close by. The A&M Club that’s in our area was having an Aggie and Astros watch party literally 5 minutes from our neighborhood, so we decided to head up there to watch the games, especially since we hadn’t been to this place before.

We really enjoyed getting to meet some fellow Aggies and it was nice to be able to watch both games at the same time, especially when the Aggies were playing so terribly! The pitcher that was playing for the Dodgers was very good and it looked like he was going to potentially throw a no hitter until George Springer stepped up and hit a home run! I have to admit I was pretty excited that didn’t happen! Unfortunately, though the Astros couldn’t pull off 3 wins in a row and we dropped Game 4 to the Dodgers, but good things there’s a few more games for us to try and bring home our first World Series win!


We had no plans at all for Sunday except for finally getting our hospital bags packed and trying to get a few last minute things organized in the girls’ nursery. We got to sleep in again Sunday morning and enjoyed a cup of coffee while finally getting to watch Hocus Pocus for the first time this Halloween! The rest of the day was spent picking things up around the house and getting our hospital bags packed, finally!

Of course, when it was time for the Astros game Chris and I tuned in and we were pretty shocked by how up and down the game was! I mean holy home runs Batman! It was insane! I’m sure the whole city stayed up late watching the game and we’ll all be dragging a little today! 

Pin It!

The weekend before Halloween was filled with getting things done before the babies and also relaxing and watching all the World Series games!

  • so exciting for your team! i am totally rooting for them btw 🙂 it’s getting so close! i’m glad you could have a nice weekend filled with new coffee, baseball and some productive baby prep. happy monday!

    • It’s so surreal because I know that they’ll be here soon and we won’t have that many more weekends without the girls here! And we’re sitting here watching game 7 right now and I know that the entire city is rooting for the Astros to bring it home!

  • Christina Sotherden

    I bet you guys are loving the World Series – it’s been so exciting! Yay for getting the hospital bags packed – such a relief!

    • It’s been a great world series with all of the homers and everything, but it’s way more exciting now that it’s our home team! We’re watching Game 7 right now and hoping that they’ll put off a win!

  • Living on Cloud Nine

    Yay you watched Hocus Pocus and got your bags packed! You’re ready girl! Good luck at your appointment tomorrow!

    • The appointment went well yesterday, and it’s still just a waiting game! I was so excited to watch Hocus Pocus this weekend, I just wish that I’d been able to watch it more times this year! Oh well, they’ll be a lot of chances next year!

  • Oh the World Series has been so excited. I watched all the games this weekend. Oh good luck at your appointment!! The twins are alreayd so blessed.

    • Thank you! The appointment went well on Tuesday and so far there’s still no twin sightings! And this WS has seriously been so crazy with all of the homers and everything! We’re watching the final game right now, and I’m still hoping for a win for the Astros!

  • Yay for finally watching Hocus Pocus! I had it on yesterday, too. 🙂 Good luck at your appt tomorrow!

    • Hocus Pocus is seriously the best movie to watch during Halloween! I also like to watch Rocky Horror Picture Show, but we didn’t get around to it this year. And the appointment went well yesterday, and it’s still just a waiting game!

  • That’s exciting about the Nespresso machine! We had one in our hotel room once and we were obsessed! I feel like that will be our next coffee purchase, too. We just don’t have anymore counter space at the moment! How sweet to have quilts for the girls with their monograms! A very thoughtful gift. I hope the appointment goes well tomorrow, the girls will be here before you know it! Happy Monday, Ashley!

    • I can totally see why people are obsessed with the Nespresso machines now, the coffee is just that good! We have an espresso machine at the office, and I have to admit that the Nespresso machine might be a little bit better because it froths my milk to perfection! And Carla is seriously so talented and I couldn’t love the quilts enough! She made us a quilt as a wedding gift, and it’s one of our most prized possessions because it’s so beautiful!

  • What a great weekend – those quilts are beautiful! How insane has the World Series been so far?! That game last night was insane. I fell asleep in the 10th and woke up to see a recap of the 12th.

    • Our friend really is so incredibly talented and we love the quilts so much! This World Series has been so incredibly crazy! I fell asleep during a couple of the games too, but I’m hoping that I’ll be able to stay awake through this last game!

  • Those quilts from your friend are so sweet! Such a special gift that the girls will be able to have forever! Unless it’s more of a chocolate type drink, I haven’t had a taste for coffee anymore, but I really love our Nespresso. Last year they had a seasonal gingerbread flavor that was so good!

    • I’ll definitely have to keep my eye open for the gingerbread flavor! Chris saw that they had a peppermint flavor, and I would be all over that and trying to make my own mocha! And it’s so funny how your tastes change during pregnancy isn’t it! I felt myself wanting sweeter coffee types of drinks instead of my normal lattes too. And our friend is seriously so talented and the quilts are so beautiful! They have the minky backing too, so they’re super soft!

  • Nadine

    Sounds like you had a great, relaxing weekend. Enjoy them while you can!!! I have been wanting a Nespresso machine! We replaced our Keurig a few months ago but I think next time I will be going with Nespresso. I just love the way they taste when I try them traveling. The quilts are so fun!!! Do you guys have car seats installed already? I remember being so nervous about packing my hospital bag, but I honestly didn’t touch it until it was time to leave and I needed to put something other than my pjs on haha.

    • Haha I think that’s one of the reasons why I just put off packing my hospital bag for so long because I just didn’t really know what to pack. I ended up packing probably way too much because I have a feeling that I won’t be changing too much when we’re at the hospital. And the Nespresso is seriously so good, and I think that it’d be a great upgrade when your Keurig doesn’t work anymore. I loved our Tassimo because it made lattes, but the Nespresso is so much better! And Chris got the car seats installed my car, but eventually he’ll need to do the same for his car!

      • Nadine

        Yeah I had intentions of putting clothes on and stuff while I was at the hospital, but after my c-section I wanted to move the least amount as possible and I spent most of the first day tied to the bed anyways unable to move from the drugs. I had bought a cotton sleeveless nightgown type thing that looked more like a sundress from Target (and a robe) and literally stayed in it from the time they told me I could change out of the hospital gown til we were getting ready to pack up the room to leave lol. I took my iPad thinking I would have down time and want to read. LOLOLOLOL oh how naive!

  • EEEEK any day now!!

  • Jen

    You can’t go wrong with a relaxing weekend! I still can’t believe that the babies could come at any time. I know you guys are so anxious to meet them!

    • We really are! It’s also kind of surreal as well because it’s always been this kind of far away idea that the babies were going to come, and now it’s starting to become a lot more real!

  • So sweet to get quilts with their names monogrammed!
    It’s so fun to have your team in the world series! I’m not super into sports but when the Indians were in last year all of Ohio tuned in 🙂

    • That’s kind of how it’s been for this World Series too! The entire city of Houston and a lot of people all over Texas are super excited and want to watch us bring home a title. And the quilts were so beautiful! I can’t wait to see them love on the quilts!

  • OMG those quilts are adorable and so perfect for your sweet little girls! And yay for a nice relaxing weekend, especially since the girls could be here any day now. I’ve been cheering for your Astros too!

    • It’s amazing to see and hear about all the people cheering for the Astros, and I’m hoping that we’ll be able to pull off the win tonight! Fingers crossed! And the quilts are seriously so beautiful! I can’t even imagine being that talented to make something like that!

  • My mom woke me up last night asking if I was watching the game, I am sad i went to bed without watching the whole thing! So fun to meet to Aggies, I loved doing that when I lived in Austin, well meeting new Tigers ;). Sounds like a fun weekend and I can’t believe they are almost here!

    • That game Sunday was seriously so insane, and I know that everybody was dragging the next day when they were headed back to work and school. And I feel like you automatically feel an instant connection when you meet somebody from your alma mater, but even more so when you’re all rooting for your team to win!

  • Enjoy the lie ins while you still can!! 😉 And oh my goodness, what a sweet gift those quilts were!

    • I know that it won’t be that much longer until we won’t be able to get much sleep at all! And I still can’t get over how beautiful the quilts are!

  • Hope your Doctors appointment went well today! Any news? The Aggie quilts are so precious!

    • I had to get some blood work done on Monday and they still don’t have the test results back, so we don’t have any official news just yet. But hopefully we will soon! And I love the quilts so much, and I can’t wait to see my girls with them!

  • Biana Perez

    What fun you guys must have had watching the game!! Those quilts are absolutely precious and I’m keeping my eyes peeled on IG to see if there is any news!!

    • No news yet, but I’m thinking that it’ll be soon, or maybe I”m just hoping for it to be soon! And the games this WS have been so insane, and I’m hoping we’ll be able to pull out a win tonight in Game 7!

  • oh, those quilts are so precious! love them. hope your doctor’s appointment went well yesterday!

    • I can’t even begin to imagine being talented enough to make those quilts, and I know that our girls are going to love them so much! And everything went well at the doctor’s appointment yesterday, and we’re still just waiting!

  • Ahhh you’re getting SO close, and the waiting game is for real! How pretty are those quilts, and I’m officially stalking your social channels for the exciting news <3

    • Haha hopefully we won’t have to wait too much longer! I’m ready for them to get here! And I love the quilts so incredibly much! They’re so beautiful and I can’t even imagine being creative or crafty enough to make them!

  • Christina Sotherden

    I hope your doctor’s appointment went well yesterday! Those quilts are so sweet!

    • Everything went well yesterday, and we’re still just in the waiting game! My fingers are crossed that they’ll be here soon!
