Weekend wisdom

by Kim on April 29, 2013

Monday, again?


Here’s what I was planning to tell you about today:

–Our amazing trip to the farmer’s market on Saturday, followed by a fun afternoon at the zoo.

–My first long outdoor run with my new Garmin.

–Grilling out and relaxing on the deck.

–Watching Gangster Squad, which finally came out on DVD. (One downfall of parenthood: you forget what’s in the theatres—God knows you’re not going there—but you know exactly when everything’s coming out on DVD.)

But I’m not gonna tell you about any of that, because none of it happened.

(Well, we did watch Gangster Squad, but what a disappointment! Even Gosling was totally off his game. Please tell me Silver Linings Playbook won’t be as big of a letdown.)

Instead, Mase and I were sick all weekend. The weather was beautiful, but we were too busy napping and wiping up snot to enjoy it much. Life, right?

In addition to “There’s No Gosling like Notebook Gosling,” here are a few other things I learned this weekend:

1. Under the right conditions, a cranky/sick/screaming child can look like a happy/playful child in pictures.


2. The top ice cream product on the market is actually your basic Walgreens’ brand. Seriously, the cookie dough to ice cream ratio in this stuff is unreal.


Possibly one of the best-kept secrets of our time. And now it’s on the internet for all to see.

3. I have a diagnosed weakness for baby overalls…


…but baby plaid shorts are my true kryptonite.


I’m finally starting to bust out the summer baby clothes and it’s VERY. EXCITING.

4. Whoever first suggested that putting watermelon on salad might be a good idea was RIGHT.


(With goat cheese and TJ’s champagne dressing.)

5. Never interfere with man time. It is sacred.


Did you miss out on anything you were hoping to do this past weekend?

Favorite ice cream?

I hope you all are feeling better. . . Ad plaid baby shorts are too cute. I put pair on Luke this weekend and just about died from cuteness!

Bummer to being sick and having a sick little one. Hope y’all are better now!!
Not a big ice cream eater (good cause I have other weaknesses!!)
And, I always check for when movies come out on DVD cause we rarely make it to the theater.

Next time you go to the store they won’t have that ice cream anymore because I’ll have bought all of it. The more cookie dough, the better the ice cream!

Oooooh watermelon on salad with goat cheese??? That sounds amazing! I think it’s time my butt got to the store and got some watermelon. I LOVE overalls on babies!! I think overalls on baby boys are the best things a baby boy can wear! Especially overall boy shorts that show that little fat crease in their thighs… love!
