Weekend Recap: Oh Yeah…

Post image for Weekend Recap: Oh Yeah…


Did you guys have good weeks? Weekends? Sorry I was MIA this week; I am working on some writing projects for Brain Bytes and it took up most of my free minutes.

I woke up early Saturday to write and then Dylan woke up shortly after. We played “tools” as we do every morning and then I took Dylan to Target while Jay tidied up the house in preparation for a new babysitter coming. Jay happened upon this monster attached to our back door while he was cleaning. Yikes! It is unsettling to think giant spiders like this one are lurking around my house.

Dylan and I were at Target to find a gift for his friend’s birthday on Sunday. While there, Dylan browsed the entire store. He also flipped out after we left because I told him he could get a small toy and he decided he was displeased with the toy he selected when we got to the car. He cried the whole ride home. Sad smile

For the record, he had selected a new tape measure but he was going back and forth between two styles and ultimately chose one style and then changed his mind. Tragic.

Jay and I enjoyed a really nice and relaxing day date. Part of it included a great meal at Peter Chang’s Tasty Chine II.

Food highlights included a chicken and cilantro soup:

A crab soup, which I didn’t eat. I’m not a fan of crab.

Spicy basil chicken:

And tofu and veggies in a clay pot:

Dylan seemed to have a nice day with his new babysitter! He was in a good mood when we got home so that’s a good sign! Smile

Here he is informing me that he has a big belly:

One of Dylan’s favorite things to do is watch all the videos that Jay has made with Jay on Jay’s computer. It is very cute to watch. Dylan knows the videos by heart.

Jay made an excellent crock pot meal today! It had spinach, kale, lemons, shredded chicken, basil, carrots, mushrooms, scallions, onions, olive oil, chili oil, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and probably a couple other things I’m forgetting. It was very yummy.

While Jay cooked and worked on our 2012 taxes (we are always soooooo late with taxes), I went to Chuck E. Cheese with Dylan for a birthday party. Despite the look on his face here, he had a fun time.

Rockin’ out!

We carved a pumpkin together when we got back from the party. Dylan was too grossed out to help me scoop out the guts, but he was invested in all the other parts. Sorry, I forgot to get a picture of the finished product. I’m sure you can imagine…triangle eyes, crooked smile, etc.

The rest of the day was pretty chill. I invented a blondie that contains sweet potatoes and white beans and Dylan actually ate it (Yay!), Jay did taxes and questioned me on every purchase I made nearly two years ago and Dylan played tools in every variation possible.

Oh yeah…and in case you haven’t pieced it together yet, I wanted to let you guys know about this:
