I had the best pedicure I've ever had over the weekend! Lacey and I have been meaning to go get our toes done for awhile and Saturday our schedules finally allowed it. We tried a new place and it did not disappoint. We got their "deluxe" pedi and for $30 they did all the normal stuff + an exfoliating sugar scrub, hot oil as a muscle relaxer, hot towels, and a warm lotion massage on our feet/legs. I honestly wanted to fall asleep in the chair- it felt so great and was just what I needed. I cannot remember the last time I treated myself to a pedicure but I'm thinking there will be at least one more before this baby arrives!
After our pampering we grabbed a quick lunch and also hit up Ikea. Yes, we braved Ikea on a Saturday and yes, it was terrifying. Luckily, we both just had a couple small items in mind we wanted to pick up there so it was a short trip. Well, as short as a weekend check-out line can be ;) I've read about these drawer organizers from no less than 10 blog/mom friends about how great they are for organizing little baby items so I snatched up two sets of them- you can't beat $5.99! Since I don't really have anything to put in his drawers yet, here's a photo I borrowed from Allison's post on organizing baby stuff.
I'd had high hopes of getting a lot more done this weekend, but I was just plain worn out. Sunday night I was feeling overwhelmed again (story of my life!) and stressed that I hadn't "done enough" with my weekend. Jared talked me out of my funk eventually and after some therapeutic coloring and a list-making session I felt better. On my to-do list I noticed there were a lot of things I needed to purchase. Various gifts, a couple household things, just odds and ends... So instead of making myself run a zillion errands in the coming weeks? I hopped on Amazon and shopped my little fingers off and crossed off a ton of "to-buy's" which felt great. Amazon Prime for the win. Shopping is totally productive, y'all! ;)
My weekend spilled into Monday when I met up with some fabulous local blogger friends at The Cheesecake Factory. I met all these women through blogging and even though they don't all blog still, I'm thankful for their friendship and for our get togethers. We laughed so much last night and swapped some crazy stories. It's nice that so many of them are new(er) mom's too- I can ask them all my pressing questions and hopefully not annoy them too much. Cheers to blogging and all the people it's brought into my life :)
