I wouldn’t consider Friday’s pizza and couch night a date, though it certainly is something I look forward to more than most things in life. Like a giant exhale at the end of a busy week and grocery shopping. I’m totally digging Friday grocery shopping now by the way.
David was up and out to work early on Saturday, making it feel like any other day of the week, so we switched things up with a Target run before our afternoon egg hunt extravaganza!
The chilly day turned out really nice in the sunshine, so we spent most of the afternoon hanging out in the grass with some of our favorite friends.
On a whim, David and I ended up going out Saturday night to Smoke, a new restaurant in Birkdale.
Though my pictures were not, the food was on point. We split the combo plate with creamed spinach and doctored up mac ‘n cheese, but the real stars were the meats, as it should be at a smokehouse. The ribs fell right off the bone and were absolutely delicious!
Sunday I made a batch of Emily’s Sunbutter Bites.
I had to use one less date than called for, since Hailey has quick little hands. These are tasty and I love them, especially for Kaitlyn! I am always focused on getting healthy fats into her and she gobbled up the combination of sunbutter, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and coconut oil, among other things.
Sunday afternoon David hung out with Kaitlyn, while I took Hailey on a date to the movies. I love the movies, but David does not, so it’s great having a fellow movie lover to go with me now.
We saw Home. As for the movie itself, it’s no Frozen, but cute and entertaining enough I suppose for a three year old. Plus, look in the bottom right corner, the theater sells WINE now. WINE! So yes, I had a glass at 4pm on a Sunday.
Another fun weekend in the books; feeling grateful for the sunshine and my family as we head into this next week.
Movies- do you love going or prefer to wait for the DVD?
I love the movies- but we usually wait for DVD.
Restaurants- what is the max time you will wait for a table?
An hour is a stretch for me, but a good cocktail helps!
