Weekend Update

Hiya folks! And woulda lookit that – I’m still pregnant! Har hardy har-har ….

But really, sometime this week would be nice. I see my doctor this afternoon, so we’ll see how it goes!

This weekend was pretty laid back and uneventful, but I thought I’d toss together a little update for fun.

Kyle worked an overtime shift at work, so it was just Isla and I at home. I had my doctor appointment in the morning and after a quick trip to Walmart to pick up some last-minute things for the hospital bag we laid low for the rest of the day.

Kyle treated us to homemade pancakes for breakfast and we had a relatively lazy morning before heading to an appointment at our bank after lunch. (We party hard on weekends, haha!) We stopped at Home Depot to get some fence-toppers for our new fence and grabbed some Slurpees from 7-Eleven on our way home. Not long after we got home, a huge storm blew in and we hid inside. We had plans for a fantastic dinner until our power went out and the electric company’s website said it wouldn’t be back on until about 8 p.m. Boo! We called up Kyle’s mom to see if she had power and she did, so we ordered pizza and wings from Boston Pizza (hurray for gift cards!) and took our dinner there to eat. Poor Isla was stressing out pretty bad that the power was out, so it was good for her to be able to hide out at Grandma’s house. We checked to see if the power was back on around 7 and it was, so we headed home! (Also – How great is the internet? I’m so glad we were able to just look it up online to see if our power had been restored.)

Isla was up bright and early (around 6:30) so I got up with her and let Kyle sleep in since it was Father’s Day! We had some breakfast and around 8 a.m. Isla wanted to give him the card she had made. We had a fairly lazy morning, although Kyle went for a quick run on the treadmill, and then we got motivated. Even though it was “his” day, Kyle vacuumed the whole house for me, mowed the lawns, AND made us lunch! Best husband ever <3 I went to the grocery store to pick up a few groceries to get us through the week, and we wandered down to his mom’s later in the afternoon for a barbecue with his family. By the time we got home and got Isla to bed just after 8, we were exhausted and ready for bed ourselves and nearly passed out at 8:30. Haha!

That pretty much sums things up!

How was YOUR weekend?? What do you do to pass the time when the power goes out??

  1. Oh, man, that sucks that the power went out for so long but I’m glad you were able to go to your mom’s house in the meantime! It’s very rare for the power to go out at my apartment. In recent years, I think the longest it has been out was 1-2 hours, maybe? Luckily, I always have plenty of candles around so I just lit some candles and I read by candlelight, which was actually very enjoyable. :)
