I pampered myself silly on my Me Day, starting the day at a local coffee shop then heading over to a spa to get a massage. I spent one luxurious hour wrapped in oils, relaxing spa music, my thoughts and on my stomach. Oh yes! Oh my. Coooo. I spent the rest of the day baking cookies and muffins and simmering a huge batch of chili. I read, napped, prayed, showered (for 30 steamy minutes). I did anything I wanted to do, and nothing anyone else wanted me to do. I picked Anna up from the sitter and got to spend a couple hours with her and then headed off to book club for some girl time. At the end of the day I felt refreshed, renewed and ready to tackle these last three weeks of pregnancy.
In the spirit of Halloween, we hit up another pumpkin patch this weekend with our friends Jenny and Chloe. We did the same thing last Halloween. Look how our pumpkins have grown...Anna wasn't even walking yet last year!
Anna got to hitch a ride on the big pumpkin...oh the novelties of childhood!
Mace is the breakfast chef in our house, and without fail makes pancakes or waffles almost every weekend morning. Mace was out of town this weekend. Anna was insistent about pancakes for breakfast. I took a shot at it and did okay, but Mace's breakfast chef status is safe. Our weekends are way more awesome when he's home with us, so I'm going to boycott making any more pancakes in hopes that will tether him to our house.
We dug through a tub of Halloween paraphernalia at Danesa's house and Anna honed in on this Karate uniform. Loves it, and wants to wear it every day. Especially with her sun hat and trick or treat bucket. I freaking love this kid.
I am so excited to take Anna Trick or Treating. This is the first year that she'll really "get" it. She's already talking about it and talking about eating all of Luca's candy. Where does she come up with this stuff?
Hope you have a great weekend and a Happy Halloween!
