I'm not quite sure how to top this last weekend. It began on Friday night, with Braden making dough from scratch for monkey bread. *Yep, that's not the stuff from a can - and I'm not sorry I've done that to him* You see, Saturday morning I had a girls day out planned for a friend's baby shower. It was a spa kind of day for me, while Daddy spent Saturday with Ryder-boy.
Saturday morning, he even got up at 5:30 to cut and roll the dough in butter and sugar before letting it rise a little more and baking it in time for all 3 of us to enjoy before I headed out the door - with NO diaper bag in tow, just me, keys, phone, and a wallet. Ahhh....
|Here's a throwback to that last visit, |
since I didn't take any photos this weekend.
I'm not really one to spend a lot pampering myself. My last visit to the spa was a quick mani & pedi before our wedding two and a half years ago. So, I just enjoyed myself and soaked in the luxury of our morning. Relaxing to a wonderful 50 minute pregnancy massage, sitting at the edge of the hot tub, and chatting with the girls.
I didn't have to worry about the boys for a minute. Daddy and Ryder spent over 4 hours working in the shop on Ryder's new bed. When I came home, Ryder's Tonka trucks had been played with, rocks thrown, blocks stacked and crashed, stories read, etc. He had a few more 'owies' but I'm sure it was worth it for all of the fun they had together!
And now it's Monday. Braden was up before 5 to get ready and get out the door.
It looks like a good morning to hit the gym (much to cold to run outside - we returned home from a walk last night to Ryder looking like Rudolph :/) and then work on some more Christmas preparations, like this ornament I made based on a Pinterest idea last week. I have a friend coming to make burlaps wreaths with me this afternoon and I'll keep you posted on how that goes....

- with a mountain of clean laundry that I've put off folding.
Enjoy your Monday!
