Another Busy Third Trimester Weekend

I seriously can’t believe that another week has come and gone, and we’re nearing the last few weeks of this pregnancy! And the closer that it gets to our due date I feel like the busier we get with the more activities that we’re doing not around the house. I’m getting more and more thankful for getting those things done in the early part of this pregnancy because I don’t feel too stressed about the things that we have to get done before the babies get here! But besides that, let’s get into another busy weekending with Biana!

Friday

Friday was a surreal day for me because it was the last day for me to work in the office until after the girls get here. I’ll go into more details on my next bumpdate, but my doctor asked that if I could work from home that I should when we went in for our last appointment on Tuesday. Thankfully my work had already set me up with some monitors and a docking station at the house, but I’m still going to be super sad to not go in and see everybody at the office on a daily basis.

Everybody was super sweet at the office, which of course makes me miss them even more! A couple of the girls gave me a new sparkly wine glass that says “I’ve Waited 9 Months For This” and you’d better believe that I’ll be drinking out of that wine glass as soon as the girls make their entrance into this world. We also had a little send off with some cookies with my group and that was so sweet as well, plus I got to take some of the extras home! I’m going to miss my coworkers so much, but I’m very thankful that we live in the day and age where it’s possible to work remotely!

We didn’t have plans for Friday night, so Chris and I just enjoyed a nice, quiet evening at home. It was just what I needed before a very busy weekend!

Saturday

My friend Sarah came over with her daughter early Saturday morning and we had a lot of fun just hanging out around the house and talking again before heading up to the Fall Festival that my neighborhood was hosting. Unfortunately most of the activities were for kids that were a little older than her daughter, and it was hotter than all get out, so we walked around for a little bit before heading out to grab lunch. We did like seeing all of the animals that were in the petting zoo, but I felt so bad for them because you could tell that they were so hot!

After lunch we came back to the house and watched RHOC together because let’s face it, watching Real Housewives is so much more fun when you can talk to somebody about what’s going on in the show. We’re both so over Vicky and Peggy, and we just laughed about all that was going on.

Once the show was done Sarah and her daughter headed out, and Chris and I headed downtown to watch the Astros in the second game of the ALCS series. My office has season tickets and my boss offered some of the tickets to me, and of course I accepted! It’s not everyday that you get to see a playoff game in person, let alone a playoff game against the Yankees, let alone a playoff game that your team actually beats the Yankees in, and if you watched my snaps, you can definitely tell how exciting the game was! I’m so happy that Chris and I had the opportunity to go, and we had such a blast getting to hopefully watch history happen!

After the game, we were stuck in some pretty terrible traffic, but we headed to return a few things to Pottery Barn Kids before trying out a new restaurant that was in the area. Hopdoddy is a burger restaurant that was started in Austin that is known for serving local and fresh ingredients on their burgers. The location that we went to was very busy, but it was cool that they served small little margaritas and shakes to everybody while we were waiting in line. Once we had ordered we sat down and watched a little bit of the Aggie game on TV. Unfortunately for us, we seem to be a team that plays to the level of the team that we’re playing and we were playing so terribly against Florida.

We finished dinner and drove home and were able to catch the end of the Aggie game, and even though we didn’t think that we could do it, the Aggies actually pulled out a win, and by only scoring one touchdown! I seriously don’t understand how it was the same team that hung close with Alabama, but I guess that a win in the swamp is still a win! Needless to say, Chris and I were both exhausted after that so we headed to bed a little early.

Sunday

We both woke up Sunday morning without an alarm, and again it was glorious! We didn’t have much on the agenda besides our maternity pictures that afternoon, so we took our time relaxing around the house before heading out to lunch and running a few errands. I decided that for the maternity pictures that I’d get a little pampered so I headed to DryBar for a little blowout before the pictures.

The same photographer that took our pictures with Dart back in March was our photographer for our maternity pictures, and seriously can’t wait to see how they turn out! We had a few poses that we wanted to incorporate into the pictures, but Lindsey also had a few ideas for poses that we didn’t even think of! I’m still just so excited, and can’t wait to see them!

Chris and I grabbed a quick dinner after our pictures before heading home to have a nice and quiet night! Needless to say it was a very busy and very fun weekend, but I’m very much looking forward to some quieter weekends at the house!

It seemed like we saved everything for the third trimester! Another busy third trimester weekend with an ALCS game and maternity pictures!

The Weekend Of Getting Baby Stuff Done

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!

Friday

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.

Saturday

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!

Sunday

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 Wandering Weekenders- The Weekend Of Getting Baby Stuff Done

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?

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

The Weekend With The Football Game

I feel like we’ve been nonstop for the past month, and let’s just say, I’m very much looking forward to a weekend of not doing much of anything except for getting baby stuff ready. But when everything is all said and done, these weekends of going are so much fun, and I know that I’ll be missing them once the babies get here. So let’s get into a little bit of a weekending with the always amazing Biana!

Friday

The weekend kicked off perfectly on Friday with my last shower hosted by the girls from my office. Chris was able to come up to the office and my coworkers totally outdid themselves with all things cute and adorable! Everything was decorated with the colors that we’re using in the girls’ nursery, and I couldn’t have asked for anything more beautiful! They even put together an awesome diaper castle that was pretty epic as well! I felt so loved by all of my coworkers, and the girls now have some really cute clothes and their stroller as well! I’m so thankful for my company and coworkers, and I know that I’ll be very happy to go back to everybody after my maternity leave.

Chris and I didn’t have much planned on Friday night after the shower, so we just headed home and spent the rest of the night just relaxing and got caught up on our shows from our DVR. A lot of our favorite shows had started up for the fall this past week so it was nice to get caught up with them again.

Saturday

We tried not to stay up too late on Friday night because we were up bright and early on Saturday to head to College Station for our only Aggie football game of the season, and the girls’ first game as well! We arrived in town in the perfect amount of time to see my parents for a little bit before heading to see Chris’s cousin for an early lunch. So far things are going great for her at A&M which we’re so happy about, although I definitely have to admit that talking to her about school makes me miss college a little bit! I loved the freedom of being in college and didn’t mind the studying, but I have to admit getting a paycheck is pretty nice too!

The Wandering Weekenders- The Weekend With The Football Game

We managed to do a little shopping while we were in town, of course, and got the cutest Class of 2040 onesies for the girls along with their own 12th Man Towels that say their names and have their class year as well. I promise we’re not going to brainwash them too much…

After our very expensive shopping expedition we dropped Chris’s cousin back off at her dorm before we headed back to my parents’ house to relax for a little bit before going to the game. I have to admit one of the best parts about having the brand new Kyle Field is the fact that there’s now escalators to get you all the way to the top of the stadium. Needless to say, this pregnant lady took full advantage of those escalators and had zero regrets.

I wish that I could say that the game was an amazing one and we played well, but I feel like the Aggies kind of sucked it up the first half, and it wasn’t that much fun to watch. Thankfully, everything else about the game was amazing. I loved being back in the Home of the 12th Man, yelling for my team, and listening to the band. It literally felt like coming home! The thing that I loved the most was the fact that they’ve now mic’d the band so they’re blasted all through the stadium. It was actually pretty funny because South Carolina brought a small band and we could only hear them because we were close and they would basically start playing, and then the Aggie band would pretty much have a drop mic type of moment and start playing and just completely overpower them. It was awesome!

Besides the amazing atmosphere and the not so amazing game, the only other crappy side to the game was the fact that during the first quarter they announced over the loud speaker that there was a drop in the water pressure and the bathroom facilities weren’t working in the entire stadium. Talk about the wrong thing to stay to a 7 month pregnant lady! They did say that you could back into the stadium with your ticket, but the only problem was that we were at the top of stadium, so if I walked out, I wasn’t going to be coming back. They did end up getting them fixed later on, but the bathrooms were pretty gross until the end of the game.

Combined with how terrible the Aggies were doing and the bathroom situation and my 7 month pregnant self having some major feet swelling, Chris and I decided to leave after the 3rd quarter. As soon as we walked out of the stadium we could hear that something bad had happened, and once we got home, we realized that we’d had a TD called back because of a bad call and the whole 12th Man got super upset. Thankfully the Aggies were able to pull off a win, but let’s just say that we don’t have too high of hopes for the game against Bama next weekend!

Sunday

Chris and I slept in for a little bit at my parents’ house on Sunday before we packed up and grabbed some lunch with a friend before heading home. I swear I don’t think that my parents knew what they were getting themselves into when they bought their retirement home in College Station because we’re going to be there a lot during football season!

The Wandering Weekenders- The Weekend With The Football Game

As soon as Chris and I got home we started to pick up the house a little bit because it was a disaster and the cleaning people were coming on Monday. The other major thing that we did was to organize the baby clothes and get all of them and the blankets and swaddles washed and put away. I seriously love all of the clothes that we got and can’t wait to see our girls wear them all! After the tons of laundry, Chris and I spent the rest of the night relaxing and watching a few of our shows. It wasn’t the most exciting of Sundays, but we needed that after our very exciting Saturday!

Did you have a good weekend? Do you like going back to your alma mater for football games?
