there is no way i actually have kept up with this for 10 weeks! yay for a blog milestone!
this week was my first full week back as a single parent during the day. b went back to work and it's just me and the boy. and it is great. but this boy misses his daddy. a lot! so i have tried to keep him busy and keep his mind off of missing him. i think we had a fun week while doing so!
this week started off with sunshine! yay! saturday was full of rain. and cold! so cold! not your typical la weather.
if you've never had espresso cheese from trader joe's then you are missing out on some major cheese coma. it's so good! i hung up my newest print from LivyLoveDesigns which is pretty much my motto these days! for dinner we had yummy pizza from cpk and caught up on tiro shows.
monday we ran some errands and hit up target for some new crayons, diapers, and to browse. i fell in love with some chevron print boxes that i think would be good for all of my crafting stuff and d's art supplies. they have a ton of gorgeous stuff out right now. i want it all! after target we went to trader joe's where i bought some yummy falafel chips and d loved them. after nap we face timed with daddy and my mom!
this morning i made mandy's smoothie recipe in hopes to incorporate more veggies into the little guys diet. it worked. he loved it and i have made 3 since! we ate breakfast and headed out for a walk at the track and then some time at the park. before nap there were a few firetrucks in front of our apartment so that was good entertainment for 20 minutes!
wednesday we had a special playmate with leah, calen and traci at their house. i fueled with coffee and we headed out. the roses were from their house. gorgeous! spring has sprung in la. the had so much fun playing together! so much so that d fell asleep in the car on the way home! after driving around making sure he got a sufficient nap we came home and played on the iPad and i made some peanut butter, marshmallow cookies. soooo good!
the morning started very early. we played, read some books, and then passed some time playing hex bugs. if you have never heard of these check them out. they are so fun! d and my cats love them! after breakfast we headed to bed, bath and beyond for some vacuum bags and then hit up the brentwood country mart for lunch. we sat a few tables away from ewan mcgregor and i drooled while eating. holy crap this man is gorgeous.
later that afternoon we went out to enjoy the sunshine and watered our plants. which btw will not need watering for a month after today! he had so much fun so that is really all that matters!
friday's are gymboree days so we headed to class, had lunch with some friends after, came home for a nap, and then went to a book signing in santa monica. i got to meet courtney from pizzazarie and the author of push up pops. she was so sweet and has the best southern accent! i adore her site and it is full of party inspiration if you are looking for some ideas! after the book signing, i picked up a few cookbooks and then we had dinner at cpk where d devoured mac-n-cheese like he had never eaten before!
today was a total waste. i was sick all day and did nothing. i hate days like this! i feel like we should be out enjoying the sunshine and doing something fun. instead i was laid up on the couch drinking coffee, reading cookbooks and being kept company by one of my cats. honestly this day was awful because i was sick but if it was any other day and i got to do this stuff it would have been rad! the boys played together and i napped. i felt a little better before d's bedtime so we had some fun with a baby samurai imitation! pretty good, i think!
hope you all had a good week!
we are gearing up for a long trip out of town so this week will be buys washing clothes, shopping and packing.
linked up with amy, per usual.
