This weekend was probably one of the most active weekends I’ve had since Judah was born and I loved every single second of it. On Friday, we got up early and I finished all of my work while Judah napped. When he woke up, we got dressed, packed the car, stopped to grab some food at Rollin Oats, picked Katie up and headed to the park to meet our friend Sarah and her two girls, Providence & Autumn, for a picnic.
I haven’t been on a picnic in a while until Friday and it was so much fun (with the exception of Judah and Katie getting pooped on by birds that weren’t too happy we parked our blankets under their tree)! We brought everything from hummus and crackers to vegan chicken salad, dolmades and peanut butter cups. The girls played on the playground for a couple of hours then we headed over to the dog park so Kiki could have a little fun too.
On Saturday, John, Judah and I headed to Lotus Vegetarian for the monthly buffet with some friends. Then Sunday, Judah and I had brunch with two of my best friends (since high school) and one of them asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding in the Bahamas next January!
After such an exciting, food filled weekend, of course today was destined to give me a case of the Mondays. Judah is still a teething machine and spent a good 75% of the day fussing or crying and the three times I’ve managed to get him down for a nap, the dog started barking and woke him up. Needless to say, working has been quite difficult today. I won’t lie – I’ve wanted to cry with him a couple of times, but John is on his way home so I can run out some of the frustration and take a bath! Tomorrow is a new day!
I’m pretty sure I’ve shared this song before, but it is my go-to happy music. It cheers me up on a bad day, so I’ll share it again in the event that you’re having a case of the Mondays as well:
