Good morning friends!
How was your weekend? Lovely and spooky I hope
Want to know a tidbit of information? I only have 16 more work days before maternity leave (until March 19 2012)!!! Meep!
But back to the weekend. This weekend was just plain off. Yes there was some good, but I’m tellin’ ya, something in the stars were just not aligned for me.
Allow me to explain…
Friday was an off-Friday from work, which means errands and more errands. Well I meant to write my half of the rent check (yes separate bank accounts with the hubby) and realized I had no more checks. Usually I plan ahead for these things. Where was my mind? Guess hubby is getting this month (mwuahahahah).
Then while running errands, I witnessed a 3 car crash just before my nail appointment, which had me a little frazzled. And then my shellac mani took about 75 minutes, which meant I was running behind for the rest of the day. At least it looks good
I quickly ran into the grocery store to pick up a few items needed to make some pumpkin bread, only to get home and realize I bought more cloves instead of nutmeg. This is the second time I assumed I was out of cloves and not nutmeg, requiring me to go back to the grocery store to get the dang nutmeg. Argh.
The pumpkin bread, however, was phenomenal – just follow this recipe. I used 4 small pans and 2 ramekins to bake mine and it took about 53 min.
Saturday morning started out well enough. We had our maternity photo shoot and did half the photos in the nursery and half up at Stanford. From what I could tell she got some pretty good shots, but we won’t know for 2-3 weeks. I may have some previews later this week though
Since wed what we already up in Palo Alto, we decided to hit up Pluto’s for some salads and then of course had to go to Yoppi. Remember that creation I mentioned last week? Well I went for it: Pumpkin pie froyo, granola, graham cracker crumbs, and cinnamon life cereal with caramel on top. So freakin’ good. I can’t even begin to tell you how yum this was
Then things went down hill…
Either the froyo didn’t agree with me or the salad didn’t, because I was having major stomach issues. We’ll just end that talk right there because anything further is TMI.
But we had to forge ahead and figure out our Halloween costumes for that night. I wanted to be a pregnant nun and have Zach be a priest, but there were no costumes!
Since that didn’t work, I figured I’d be a white trash drinking/smoking preggers girl and set out to Target for some fake tattoos. What did they have? Nuthin’. Sigh.
By the time we got home, I was oddly exhausted. Like couldn’t stop yawning and crashed on the couch.
Needless to say, we didn’t end up going to the Halloween party and I feel like such a butthead. I just got into a tired funk and couldn’t move. You can check out pics from last year here though (Halloween Part 1, Halloween Part 2)
When I woke up Sunday morning, it was so bright in our room and I was a bit confused, but didn’t think anything of it. After I fed the pets and took Naava out, I came back in only to see the microwave clock read 941a!!! Huh? I just woke up to my alarm at like 817a.
Well my alarm is too smart for its own good and has pre-programmed Daylight Savings dates, but that was the dates like 8 years ago…they’ve since changed. So my silly clock set itself back an hour. Ooops.
The rest of the morning was good, albeit a little off from getting started so late. After my workout, I figured I’d hammer out some baby shower thank you cards by the pool. No sooner do I walk down my stairs, do I realize I locked myself out. Meaning I can’t get into the pool. I walked to the leasing office and they won’t be back for an hour! Zach just left to golf, so I’m, err, well, screwed. Luckily I found a way into the pool area and hung out there until I could get back in.
I feel like it’s just one of those weekends where I was meant to stay in the comfy confines of my house all weekend.
So that was my weekend…
