Weekend Happenings

Last weekend we were stuck inside all of the days because I was sick!  Ugh, this cold was awful.  And all thanks to Derek, this was the first time I had been sick in over a year!  I had been so lucky to not get sick the entire pregnancy, so I guess it was definitely time for me to get sick.  Luckily, we did not pass it on to baby girl!
Anyway, while stuck inside all day, we played dress up and took pictures to help pass the time :)

This past weekend, Derek and I had a stay at home date night on Friday.  We made these ah-mazing salsa verde pork tacos.  I’m so serious when I say that they were amazing.  We will definitely be making these again and soon!  This is a very similar recipe.  We also took in a Dexter marathon.  We slowed down on Dexter there for a while, but after finishing season 6, we are totally hooked again.  That season rocked my world!

Saturday night, Derek and I had a babysitter and went out to dinner and then to the Tin Roof.  The last time I had been there was when I was pregnant and enjoyed my huge glass of water.  Needless to say, it was a lot more fun this time!  The band was from Nashville and soooo good.  It got me so excited for our upcoming Nashville trip!!
We attempted to take some family photos before leaving.  Charlie is in a big phase right now at concentrating and staring at people.  The only way we can get her to smile is by blowing raspberries.  Hence my “duck lips” on this photo:


Lastly, tonight I’m planning on blowing my bedtime out of the water and staying up until Derek gets home to watch the series finale of How I Met Your Mother.  I’m pretty sure I’m going to cry.  Fingers crossed it has a super good ending.  I’m so sad this is over!

Hope you had a great weekend!

That is how I was with Dexter and then after Season 6 I was hooked again and finished it all!

Glad you're feeling better ... being sick is the worst!

Charlotte is sooo adorable! I just want to squeeze her!

Oooh I've been thinking about starting to watch How I Met Your Mother on Netflix ... I think I'll have to check it out now. Hope it has a great series finale!

Being sick as a parent... not a fun twist on being sick. Glad to hear Charlie avoided it though! And I think I must try that recipe.

Look at that little fashionista in her leopard and mint pants! ahh I love it!!! Pumped that you got to have a fun night out!! We have a Tin Roof here too and it is so fun!

This recipe sounds AMAZING. We like pork but I wouldn't mind a different way of preparing it, and I love Mexican food! Did you guys "roast" it like it says? I just ask because I like to cook pork in the crockpot :)

Kristen said...

She is so adorable! I am especially loving the mint!

Glad you're feeling better! Stuff is doing going around!

Ericka said...

Charlie is getting so big!! She is so darn cute :) Sounds like you had a fun weekend! What did you think of the HIMYM finale?

Ashley R said...

Ahh what did you think of the ending? I'm still not sure what to think. So glad you guys had a fun weekend, hope you're feeling much better. :)

Looks like such a fun weekend despite being sick. I am so happy that you are feeling better.

Oh and way to blame the baby for your duck lips :), it's cute how we do crazy things to get the kids to respond to us..hehehehe

What a beautiful family picture by the way.
