We had a great weekend! It went by too fast, but what weekend doesn't?
Our Friday night was simple, but really good. I needed to pick up some makeup I had ordered at Belk, and B and Aniston joined me. Since we were out, we had dinner at Chick-fil-a. Aniston loves to people watch, and dinner was not a disappointment at all in that category. She had the best time watching (and commenting loudly--ugh) on a toddler at a nearby table who was having a difficult time. B and I felt so bad for the parents! It was just one of those situations we've all been in before--that stage of life where things are just hard. Nothing was going their way, and they were clearly frazzled.
We are in such a good place right now, and (most of the time) things with Aniston are easy and fun. It's easy to forget those stressful times filled with toddler tantrums and dinners that made you question why you even bothered to leave home at all.
Then, as we were talking about it, it occurred to both of us that we'll be starting over in September. Diapers, bottles, feeding schedules...oh my! Ha! We're both super excited, but we're not going into this blindly at all this time. We know what's ahead! (But we also know that it passes so quickly, and we'll enjoy every minute!)
I spent most of Saturday shopping by myself. It was so nice! After I got home, we cooked spaghetti for dinner and had a movie night.
On Sunday morning, Aniston and I made it out of the house on time and without tears or ultimatums. Huge success! (B played in the band, so he left much earlier than us.) We spent the rest of the afternoon at home, then went to dinner at Mellow Mushroom with Kesha and Matt. We had a great time, and it was the perfect ending to a fabulous weekend. :)
