We had some special visitors this weekend! Everyone loves it when Grammie Buzz and Pea visit!
We had the perfect balance of time spent with my parents and free babysitting. My parents like to hang with Mazen alone, so it was a win win!
After they arrived on Saturday, we walked downtown on a chilly afternoon to the Discovery Museum.
Mazen looks very warm and relaxed, don’tchathink?
He had a great time playing.
Saturday night after bedtime Matt and I snuck out for a fabulous date night. It was quite cold!!
But that didn’t stop us from having giant ice cubes at Commonwealth!
The above was actually not a Manhattan – it was a drink called The Jake made from a fortified wine that was supposed to mimic a Manhattan without the strength of bourbon. I loved it!
We sat down to dinner in one of the few booths at Commonwealth with two other friends – celebrating the husbands’ birthdays.
We all shared two rounds of empanadas to start – vegetarian and beef. I though the veg one ruled.
For dinner I had Cornmeal Crusted Sea Bass with black beans and tomatillo sauce. It tasted good, but it was missing a third side – some potatoes or polenta or something.
We also had an amazing marshmallow dessert, but I was too engrossed in conversation to snap a picture.
We headed upstairs to Sky Bar after and met more friends for a fun time. Despite being in a tent with heaters, it was freezing!
Sunday morning we headed out to brunch at The Nook
Somebody loved his broccoli and cheese omelet!
I had a Belgian waffle and shared Mazen’s omelet for a little protein
Sunday afternoon Matt and I went to see The Hobbit!! The second movie was even better than the first. And 3 hours went by really fast…
We fit in our Sunday meal plan prep during naptime and also made dinner – another Cook Smarts Chicken Pot Pie! This recipe is so easy, even with Matt’s homemade crust on top.
Mom and dad loved it alongside a simple salad
Monday morning we said goodbye over cinnamon chip French toast and a final run outside for me. Our 60* coat-free weather is taking a turn for the worse today – snow expected!!
