Hi guys! How were your weekends? I’m feeling much more rested (I mean, as rested as you can be with a 3 and a half month old…) after a low key weekend. On Friday night, Matt had plans to go out with some buddies for dinner and drinks, so my mom brought sweetgreen salads over for dinner and we had a girl’s night with Riese!
I had their Harvest Bowl, which is kale, brown rice, sweet potatoes, apples, goat cheese, chicken, sliced almonds, and balsamic vinaigrette. It’s soooo good – really hearty. Riese went to bed at 8-ish and I was so exhausted from the week that I went to bed with her. It was glorious and such a good call – I felt way better on Saturday!
We spent most of Saturday outside because it was nice out – sunny and not too crazy cold. What a treat!
Funny story – on Saturday, we headed out for a nice long walk and when we were about a mile and a half from the house, Riese had a TOTAL meltdown. I thought we’d easily have another hour or so before she was hungry, but I brought her to a friend’s place for breakfast that morning and I think she was too distracted to fully eat while we were there, so she decided it was time to eat halfway through the walk, and once she turns on a dime there’s no going back until she eats. We ended up having to rush around for a few blocks until we found a bench where I could feed her awkwardly under Matt’s jacket. I’m glad no one was walking by because there was definitely some time where I was not 100% covered while we tried to get her to calm down and eat. Whew! Also, Matt suggested we bring a couple diapers and wipes with us just in case (we don’t normally on walks), and I’m so glad he did because we ended up needing to change her on the bench, too! Quite the adventure.
On Saturday night we were feeling cozy and craving Italian food so we did UberEats and ordered ourselves chicken parm from Alto Fumo (formerly Faccia Luna) in Clarendon. It hit. the. spot. We got an order of tomato and mozzarella to share as well and added some arugula to it to make it more of a salad.
On Sunday morning I treated myself to a yoga class, and when I got back we had some leftover thick garlic toast from the restaurant that Matt used as the base for avocado toast with fried eggs. So good. I think the bread was grilled originally because it had a nice smoky flavor, and Matt reheated it in the oven so it got nice and crunchy again.
We spent most of yesterday outside, too – Matt and our friend Shane wanted to kick around the soccer ball for awhile so once I fed Riese I got her in her little snowsuit and we walked over in the stroller to watch them play.
The rest of yesterday was spent relaxing on the couch and playing with Riese. Over the weekend she gave us her first giggles – they were SO CUTE! It’s so much fun to see her get more interactive as the weeks pass. <3
I hope you guys have a nice day! I’ll be back tomorrow with a postpartum fitness update… stay tuned.
