Weekend Warriors

After Friday's late night at the fireworks we expected Harry to sleep in, at least until 9:30 or so. Nope, of course not! He was up bright and early Saturday morning. Oh well. We hung around the house in the morning and headed out to Once Upon a Child in the early afternoon. Their $1 clearance event was going on, always a great time to go shopping if there's a OUAC in your area. We paid $31 for everything we bought, originally it would have cost $62 (obviously not everything we got was $1).


2 pairs of jammies, 6 shirts, 4 pairs of pants, 1 hoodie and 1 fleece jacket.

On our way home we stopped for frozen yogurt at Yumz. We got Harry his own cup with a small swirl of peach and strawberry froyo topped with pineapples and blueberries. It was gone in a matter of minutes.

Saturday night I converted Harry's crib into a toddler bed. That was a weird experience. Psychologically speaking. I remember buying that crib. Having the pieces sit on our living room floor for months before we built it not long before he was born. I remember putting him in the crib and how he used to fit width-wise with room to spare. I remember how well he slept there for so long and I of course remember the night he decided he no longer wanted to sleep there. And now? Now it's not a crib.

Sunday I spent all afternoon rearranging the furniture in his room and doing a deep clean to get him ready for the transition back to his own bed. Not going to go in to specifics yet, but I will write a blog post soon about how we got him back in his own bed after 7 months of cosleeping.

Sunday night I made the most delicious dinner. Angel posted this recipe on her blog last week and I picked up the ingredients on Friday. I followed her recipe pretty closely, but I used turkey instead of chicken and whole wheat rotini instead of angel hair.


Seriously, it was so good. A little time consuming, so I probably won't make it very often. And next time I make it I'll probably do 2 heads of garlic instead of 1. You can never have too much garlic in my opinion.

And one more cute thing...


Harry loves his piggy bank. And dropping coins in. We've been letting him do it a lot lately and he gets a kick out of it. The other day I spread a bunch on the ground and let him have fun with them. Obviously under close supervision since we don't want any money deposited in the tummy bank ;).

  1. Yay! I am so glad you made and enjoyed the pasta! Good call on the rotini, I bet it was much easier to get everything mixed together! And you are so right about more garlic! I think I am going to roast a few heads ahead of time so I will always have it on hand. That will save a step next time and plus it's so delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe on your blog. xo
