This week is already getting away from us – how is it Wednesday already? It feels a bit like we’ve been in crisis management mode since Monday and I’m understanding the draw of having a family secretary. I am not sure how people manage a family of six when I’m struggling with a family of two and a half (this babe is valued at a whole person, just at the moment his needs are significantly less, thank goodness).
The heavens must have known though because they gave us the perfect weekend before such a crazy week. Saturday has got to be one of my favorite days we’ve had in Findlay since we moved in June. It went a little bit like this:
^This handsome guy woke up at the crack of dawn to get his exercising, studying, and reading done (a forever student this one is…and no, he’s not in school right now). He woke me up a bit later than usual with omelets for breakfast and indulged me in a slow paced morning (slow paced Saturday’s with Ben are an infrequent treat).
^We spent the next few hours browsing goodwill and home stores and dreaming of future projects (and only buying popcorn…turns out Meynards has the cheapest popcorn around).
^We stopped in this delightful cafe downtown tucked right off of Main Street for a late lunch and Ben declared it our new favorite place in town (when Ben gets excited about eating out, it is a good day).
It’s a small, small little cafe only open for breakfast and lunch with everything made fresh to order in the little back kitchen.
^We’ll be back, I’m certain.
^After lunch there were afternoon naps, evening walks, and plenty of ice cream, popcorn and cuddling as we watched a few too many episodes of Chuck (have you seen the show?). All in all, the weekend wasn’t anything dramatic or extravagant but it was the perfect combination of productive and lazy, of going out and staying in (and it was the first full day we’d had together just the two of us in weeks, so that may have been part of it).
Saturday also started the 12 week countdown to baby (meaning I hit 28 weeks). While we were out and about a few nice people asked about the baby – I’m convinced everyone is sweeter when you’re pregnant! A few more pictures:
^one of my favorite maternity outfits to date because of all the great basics and fun details
^this hat is one of my favorite things to wear this fall and it pulls any outfit together
^I layered on a few fun necklaces – The tassel and key necklaces are linked below but I can’t remember where the tree necklace is from. I’ve had it sitting on my nightstand recently (more because I took it off one night before bed and haven’t put it away) but it’s a reminder that we are starting our own family tree and I love wearing it right now 😛
^this hair is in major need of a trim. unfortunately, the only people I’ve let cut my hair in the past few years live in Utah. Britt or Hanna, wanna come visit?
^the leather trim on this shirt is great (and so is the fact that its long enough that I don’t ever have to worry if my belly is showing…not something I can say about all maternity shirts, unfortunately).
