Wow we’ve had a lot of rain in the past 24 hours!! On Saturday night I took the dog for a walk around 9 pm and it was almost warm enough to open my jacket. The christmas lights, the huge puddles and the warm weather just have me so confused about what time of year it is. (It doesn’t help that I have to consult my phone on a regular basis to see what day of the week it is. Motherlife, am I right?!)
So we took the weather fully into consideration and managed to wear sweatpants for about 90% of the weekend. On Saturday Mike made us the most yummy brunch - Shakshuka - or dish of eggs and tomatoes and spices. So delicious! I love one pot dishes that just warm the whole house up. We’ll have to try this one again when we’ve got family around because we had enough left over for dinner. I know I've said it before but I need to repeat this one: It’s so great to have June at the table with us. I think it’s my favourite thing - well, today it’s my favourite thing, tomorrow it will probably be something else because honestly I just can’t decide what I love most about my little family. Eating meals together has to be at the top of the list though. It’s so special and something that Mike and I have always loved doing together. I’m just so happy that we get to include June in this now too.
Since we did a lot (more then I’m willing to admit to) of Netflix binging trying to finish the Making of Murderer (THAT SHOW> HONESTLY), we promised ourselves we had to finish up some other responsible adulty things as well. Turns out, it's hard to get a lot done when you've got a baby at home. I don't know where I'd got the idea that there'd be time for extra stuff ;) So, when June hit nap time out of the park on Sunday, I was able to fully embrace a quiet house and get some real work done which I haven’t felt like I’ve been able to do in a few months! Yay for rainy day weekends that lull babies to sleep :)
In addition, I finally got around to taking pictures of our Fall project! We have this ridiculous room off of our kitchen and main living area. It’s supposed to be a formal dining room but since we do not have a formal dining room table, we decided to turn it into actual useful living space! We’ve taken a lot of slack from family members who think it will be turned over to a playroom in only a few years time but I’m so happy with how this turned out, I’m not sure you could convince me :) Also, we have such a small main living space to begin with, I don’t think I could take a jumble of toys flowing into it from either direction. Plus, a sitting room isn’t not for kids, so we’ll see! I'm going to try to get around to sharing some pictures later on this week!
