As DH had a huge assignment due on Friday, last week was spent with him working insane hours while I labored insanely hard myself to spend all of his overtime pay on cloth diapers and accessories. Good news, though, we were both successful. (Cloth diaper review coming soon, I want to wait until I'm entirely past the learning curve.)
Luckily, following that exhausting week, we caught a bit of a break this past weekend. We were supposed to be one of the hosts for a "family mixer night" with the MOMS Club on Saturday, where the participating families are split up into small groups to have their own themed potlucks. Luckily, due to some last-minute cancels, our group became too small so we disbanded and joined other groups, thus relieving us our duty to clean and decorate our house. The theme of our adopted group was "light and healthy." (The "heavy and fattening" party was full, as I'm sure you can imagine. Okay, so there really wasn't such a group. But if there was, I'd have been all over it.) Despite the lightness and healthiness of the menu, it was a delicious meal and the other families were very nice.
On Sunday, Bean and I went on a playdate with Jen (cupcakes again, yes seriously!) while DH and the pooch took advantage of the beautiful weather and went hiking with about 853,046 other Seattlites. I did my best to consume the same amount of calories that he burned, I figured at least we'd balance each other out by the end of the weekend. We are joined as one, and all that.
Here are some pictures from the past week or so, lest you become overwhelmingly bored from my pointless recap.
"You stick this neti pot WHERE, Mom?"
No, this is not a toy store, it's our family room.
Bean and Evey watch as Daddy mows the lawn.
My sweet pea eats his sweet peas.
Whatever Bean is saying, Evey's not having any of it.
I can't imagine many dogs less suited for mountain climbing than a Schnoodle. But according to DH, he couldn't hike fast enough for her!
