Best of the Weekend, Mother’s Day

Ahh, another weekend has come and gone and though I am sad to see it go because it was a great one, I am excited to start this week fresh and new! For some reason I’m looking forward to this week with bright eyes, which usually means my gut is telling me I have something good coming my way! Here are the highlights from last weekend

-Spending my first Mother’s Day with my favorite guys.



I told Alex all I wanted for Mother’s Day was for him to agree to a family 5k, the ability to drink all the Coke Zero I could manage, and to not make a single decision through the day, and he definitely delivered. We went to Space Farms, which is a animal refuge of sorts with a cool antique museum on the land that has old tools, cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Alex used to come there a lot as a kid, so it was fun to bring Ryan. We even took a picture in front of the legendary elephant slide that Alex has a bunch of pictures on as a kid.

We had a day of good, easy food since Ryan’s naps were off, but still awesome. Chipotle, Panera, and my first cup of ice cream in almost a year. Cookies and ice cream are my favorite things, so not having ice cream has been rough. Ryan is still going strong on the no allergy front, so I’m happy.

Also, side note, I have all these tiny hair growing back at the front of my head from post-partum hair loss. Does anyone have any tips for taming them? It was super humid yesterday, so that headband was a quick fix, but I need something better!!!

-An ice cream cake for (almost) no reason

After seeing a commercial for one, I jokingly told Alex I really wanted a Carvel ice cream cake. They’re my favorite since I really don’t like cake, and that’s what I always ask for for my birthday. Well, the next thing I know Alex is gone and driving to the store to get me one. Can you say most amazing husband ever? This guy.

-The knee is still holding up!

As I mentioned in my workout round up, my knee is holding strong so far! I’m so happy, but I’m still obviously being cautious to not over do it in my excitement. Keep on keepin’ on, knee!

-Warm days reminding me of summer!


It was so warm on Friday and on Sunday (Saturday was warm but cloudy and will a chillier breeze) that with out the AC in the house yet, we had Ryan rocking the most adorable combo of tank top and diaper I have ever seen. Can you please tell me something cuter than baby legs? Ugh. PS, please note our attractive makeshift baby gate. We actually have real one from when Cooper was a puppy, but we need something that Coop can jump over so when I’m too busy to chase Ryan in an our of the living room, this is what we do.

Here’s to a great weekend and hoping for an awesome week!

I’m linking up with Erin at Her Heartland Home and Katie at Healthy Diva Eats!

  1. I had ice cream cake this weekend also.! soo good.
    and sounds like you had a great Mother’s Day. Happy late Mother’s Day. 🙂

  2. Ice cream cake was my favorite when I was a kid, but now I prefer regular cake. Actually, what I really prefer is just the icing. Is there such a thing as an icing cake?
