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 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!
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.
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!
