weekends are wonderful


i am happy to say that this little family is most definitely having a refreshing and relaxing weekend.  it's crazy what a few days of chill and not showering until the afternoon can do for a person.  it is one of those weekends where i am confident that our batteries will pretty much be re-charged for the week ahead, instead of feeling out of breath and exhausted come monday.  man, we needed this.  

and i can't forget to give our wee one a shout out...

happy 11th months to our dear, sweet stella vivienne!  in thirty short days, we will be singing to you, eating your birthday cake, and clapping along {following your cue}.  oh, sweetie pie, we love you so much, and can hardly believe you are almost one year's old.  we love being your mama & dada, xoxo



after work on friday we started off our weekend the right way by hopping over to la bodega for some spanish tapas with my mama before she had to head back to iowa.  holy cow did we sure indulge in some happy hour treats!  i could eat the baked goat cheese and spicy tomatoes all day long.  and guess what?  baby girl tried balsamic vinegar with bread for the first time!  i am so proud of her for trying new things and not throwing a fuss.  you can judge based on the photo above if she liked it or not ;) she also felt like sharing so she fed dada some of her balsamic bread, and she had water out of a straw {also another first for this little nugget}.  check out those puffy cheeks...hehe.  i could just squeeze em and squeeze em!  thanks again, mama, for helping us out this week.  you are awesome and we love you.
after dinner, we went home and snuggled in for a flick and some dessert.  we decided on girl with the dragon tattoo {american version} and some of this goodness teasing you above.  angel food wine + double dark chocolate gelato = heaven {no pun intended}  taaaalk dirty!
  


the rest of our weekend has been filled with snuggles after bath time, playing in baby girl's nursery, eating yummy fruit throughout the day, and sunday plans to spend a lovely afternoon in one of our favorite places on the plaza, loose park's famous rose garden.  stay tuned for a photo diary of our flower-filled adventure!  

we hope you are having a chill weekend with your loves, too.

  1. I was looking through these photos and My daughter has the same highchair, toys and soft booK as Stella! thought that was funny. That gelato looks yummy, too. Happy Weekend. :)

  2. Love this post! My little man Wyatt turns one next month, kind of getting sad about it. Excited for the party though! Do you have anything special planned for your little one?
