This weekend was tiring, but still a good one.
Friday after work, we went out to lunch and to run a quick errand to Old Navy to pick up the girls some stuff for their Easter dresses, but it was a total bust and they were out of everything. We have been working on standing, walking with the walker and walking on their own with the girls daily and it is paying off. The girls are on the move and will be walking on their own any day now. I am not sure if I am ready for it, but who is? We spent Friday afternoon working on this and waiting for the storm to roll in.

That evening my in-laws came over to watch the girls so we could have a date night. We went to Midtown Eats and enjoyed some gourmet burgers and beer battered cauliflower. It was really good and totally hit the spot. Even with my tiny stomach (haven't been able to eat huge portions since surgery), I devoured a little over half of my burger. Then we walked over to their sister bar (Death and Taxes) for a drink. I had a glass of wine and Rory had this yummy drink that was a play off an old fashion. This was my first glass of anything since prior to my surgery. I waited to take my pain meds til way after we had that one drink.
Saturday we went to breakfast and went to Target. We bought a lot of stuff to decorate for Easter (hello dollar section), things for the girls Easter baskets, some household things we needed and some groceries. I tried on the gladiator sandals that everyone has been posting about and I loved the way they looked, but they were really uncomfortable. The straps dug into my feet on certain parts. I was super bummed because I wanted to buy them for Mexico.
I went grocery shopping so we could have dinner at home that evening and brace for the big storm. It rained Friday, but the bulk of the storm was supposed to hit Saturday through Monday morning. It finally started raining again Friday night while Rory was at the last Nevada Wolf Pack basketball home game. I was watching the first episode of The Family and the first episode of season 4 of House of Cards. I think I am going to like The Family. Seems twisted. I didn't watch Sunday night's episode yet, but the first did keep my attention. What did you think?

Sunday we headed out to breakfast again and home to hang out. This is where my weekend got a bit stir crazy. I think I overdid it Saturday, so I wanted to take it easy Sunday. So we stayed in all day. We built a fire and hung out with the girls. Sutton had a really good day, but Avery wouldn't nap, so this caused her to have a major meltdown. I am talking wouldn't sleep, screaming, would almost fall asleep in my arms (and did for about 10 minutes), wouldn't eat her snack or dinner and cried most of her bath time. Avery loves bath time, so it was a brutal day. I played on the ground with the girls all day and it kicked my booty. But I did manage to bake the girls the Whole Wheat Strawberry Banana Muffins and I plan on making the zucchini and banana muffins later this week or this weekend.
Sunday cuddles with a fussy Avery girl
I made a baked spaghetti last night for dinner that several bloggers recommended and we didn't like it. I was so bummed because I used my favorite (and expensive) spaghetti sauce in it. I would have rather made a quick spaghetti out of it. I think it tasted too cheesy (how is that even possible?) and lost all the spaghetti sauce flavor. Rory brought some for leftovers, but I just couldn't. I was so bummed. Don't you hate it when you are super excited to make a new recipe and it isn't good and lets you down? So bummed. But we had some gelato to make up for it.
Avery went down ok, but it took her forever to go to sleep. I guess she was just way too overtired (plus molar teething) and kept waking up through the night. It was a rough night after a rough day. Hoping today is a little better.
And this big storm that was supposed to hit? Well we got some rain, but not much and the mountains got about a foot to two feet when they were calling for 4 plus feet of snow and around 4 to 6 inches in the valley. Whomp whomp.
How was your weekend?
