This weekend was full of rain and snow. The mountains got so much snow. 42 inches last night alone. Nevada is definitely out of its drought.
Friday morning, I had the most delicious donut at work. It was the best way to start the day. After work, Rory and I headed out to lunch and then to Costco for diapers. By the time we were finished with that, we grabbed a quick coffee and headed to the girls' daycare to pick them up. Just as we got home, my parents arrived to watch the girls for us. Rory and I went to look at a daycare for the girls. We toured for about an hour and were very impressed.
After the tour, we stopped at the store to pick up essentials for breakfast Saturday morning. Then we headed home for a bit. We went to dinner with my parents at this amazing Chinese/Taiwanese place. The girls had so much fun eating off of their grandparents plates.
After dinner, we headed home to burn some energy off and then put the girls to bed. We tried watching Parenthood, but our internet was slow due to the storm rolling in.
Saturday morning I attempted to make waffles. I used the pancake mix that we love (it is also meant to be used for waffles). The problem with the first batch was I didn't whip my egg whites until they were stiff. I only went half way. The second batch was better since I whipped the eggs fully. I also cooked some bacon and the girl were very happy.
The pancake mix I used.
Saturday we played around the house, did some chores, took a walk and got salads to go for dinner. Rory had a Pack basketball game at 5 pm, so it cut right into dinner time. I hung out with the girls and they were pretty feisty that evening. But we had a good time. I put them down to bed, quickly ate my salad and got ready to head out with my girlfriends.
We met up at The Depot for some drinks and appetizers. The place was pretty packed, but we snagged a community table and just sat around catching up. It was the perfect way to end my evening. Oh and the Pack won their basketball game, so Rory was very happy.
Sunday morning we headed out to breakfast and the girls were still feisty. Luckily, the restaurant was pretty empty since we went so early. After breakfast, we went for a drive and grabbed some coffees to take with us. We just wanted to calm the girls down and have a little peace and quiet. When we got home, the girls were bummed and didn't want to get our of their car seats. They were having too much fun sightseeing.
I headed to the grocery store and then came back in time to put the girls down for their naps. While the girls napped, I did some cleaning and Rory did some yard workThe in between the rain showers.
My in-laws came over at 4 pm and after catching up, Rory and I headed out for date night. We went to a favorite little place for some drinks and appetizers (hello happy hour!) before heading to an Italian place for dinner. Since we didn't celebrate Valentine's Day or our half year anniversary, we went out on Sunday instead.
Butternut squash risotto and osso buco
We finished dinner with dessert, tiramisu, and then a walk to burn off dinner. We headed home to see how the girls' evening went and then went to bed not long after. Food and wine coma.
Monday morning I made pancakes (using the same pancake mix above) and lattes since it was raining and had not stopped since the night before. We were in for another rainy day and we didn't feel like going out. Rory built a fire and we played, cleaned and hung out around the house most of the day. Rory did get cabin fever so around 2 pm, we headed out to Petco for some food for Walter and to J Crew to buy the NYC shirt that I mentioned on Friday.

The girls had so much fun seeing the animals and fishes in Petco. We bought Walter extra treats (the girls give Walter all his treats) and then headed to J Crew. And I had heard rumors that J Crew was closing soon (possibly moving), so I wanted to see if I could get any deals. And when we arrived, they had already closed suddenly and I was SOL.
We headed home and vacuumed since Walter got into the trash while we were gone. Ugh. We did some other cleaning and then played for a bit before making the girls dinner and getting ready for the week. We did baths, laundry and then I made dinner for Rory and I. Homemade pizzas. I love making pizzas at home now. With my new counter tops, it makes it so easy to roll out the dough and assemble the pizzas.
Not the finished product
We had pizza, wine and watched Parenthood all evening. I even skipped out on The Bachelor for Parenthood. So worth it. I can watch Bachelor tonight.
How was your weekend?
