It was a sweeeet weekend!

Weekend rundown!

Saturday we met with two of our best friends for lunch at Burger Fi! It was a new place for us and we are all about tryin’ new things these days :)  Their cheeseburgers were delicious and, just an FYI, to all the vegans out there- BurgerFi’s "Vege-fi burger" contains egg and cheese in the mix. (Bummer!) 

For dessert, we brought sugary, cupcake treats from the amazing bakery “Sprinkles” to our friends and their son. These cupcakes are delicious. And, BONUS, they offer a vegan, gluten free and sugar free option! *to date I have tried the Vegan red velvet, the banana dark chocolate, sprinkles, and coconut options.* All have been Ah-Mazing.

To burn off some of this sweetness we then went to play at the park with our friend’s son. It is so awesome to watch little kids at the park…. To them it’s a huge magical place filled with castles and cool bugs.  I got schooled on how weak I am on the monkey bars- I could not do a single pull up. *note to self,  I need to follow through on the working out thing before babies. Tonight is night #1!

After separating from our friends we did some shoppin’ at Target. I found a mirror for above my DIY table, shoes that I fell in love with, and some shorts and shirts for the hubs! Then we headed off for a little date night/married time :)

We saw the movie, “The Nice Guys” which was very funny. I love listening to people’s reaction in a movie theater- it makes me laugh even harder! Then we were off to try another first! We went to a local ramen place for dinner called, Ichicoro Ramen. We may be the last people in the area to finally try it but - we finally did! It was VERY yummy. I was painfully aware of how uncool I was in the restaurant with all the youngsters but the staff was super friendly and helpful. I know to some people this doesn’t make or break their dining experience…but is does for me! So we will be back! Though I should mention this is not a place I would say is “kid friendly” but is a definite dinner date night!



*I got the Champon Ramen with a bacon extra, while my Vegan husband, got the Miso Ramen with Spicy Sauce* 



Sunday was a sweet little day where we biked out a new route, shared lunch at our favorite Mexican joint and then caught up with friends and their sweet little babies. “Sprinkles” cupcakes popped up again during this visit! I couldn’t keep away from the sugar and goodness!

As two of the little guys napped, the “big” kids watched Toy Story, and as the daddy’s played pool… the mommy’s talked. I have to state that every.single.one. of my friends are the BEST mothers. They are incredible examples to follow and I am SO lucky to have them to bounce emotions, thoughts, ideas, tears, frustrations etc. off of. I cannot wait to join in on the connection of being mothers together. They are also a HUGE wealth of knowledge! Some of it is graphic but most of it is hilarious! Always informative!

For example, a great thing I learned was where to find cheap pregnancy/ovulation tests online:

Cheers to the rest of this week!
