Weekend highlights: Father’s Day weekend

Hello there, welcome back from the weekend! Hope you’re feeling rested and refreshed, and that you had a good day celebrating all the fathers and father figures in your life. Over at SheintheCLE.com, I wrote a little tribute to Mike (a great husband turned amazing dad), and my own dad and my father-in-law (great dads who are now amazing grandpas/mannies :)).

Regarding the weekend in general, possibly because I took Thursday off, it seemed like an extra long weekend, which I thoroughly enjoyed. In fact, it seemed to last so long I hardly remember Friday night – ha! We probably didn’t do much other than watch The Man in the High Castle after putting Vera to bed! Saturday and Sunday were more eventful, so here are a few highlights:


  • Solo shopping trip. I snuck out during Vera’s second nap to run some errands, including a trip to Target. Granted, I only purchased items for Mike and Vera, but still…#momgoals. I also popped into Carter’s and picked up these adorable pajamas for Vera.


  • Sweaty run. I took Vera out in the stroller Saturday morning for a super hot and sweaty run. We did about 3 miles and I made sure Vera stayed hydrated per Mike’s instructions – ha!

You know it’s hot when you are still red-faced from your run AFTER a cold shower.

  • Father’s Day celebration, part 1. My mom and dad came over in the afternoon to celebrate father’s day. We picked up food from Gentile’s and there was plenty of playtime.
  • Babyproofing. Finally!


I never thought I’d say this, but isn’t that kind of a cute baby gate??


  • Father’s Day celebration, part 2. Mike wanted waffles for breakfast to celebrate his day, so shortly after we were all up, I whipped up whole-wheat blueberry cinnamon waffle batter. Mike was then in charge of cooking them up.


Such good technique 🙂


Look at those beauties!


I ate mine topped with peanut butter and strawberry smooch. (I shared mine with Vera, who ate her half plain. We both went back for seconds :))

  • Meal prep! I put in a couple hours in the kitchen meal prepping. I did a big batch of oatmeal and sweet potato muffins for Vera; a zucchini/carrot/tomato dairy-free frittata for Monday and Tuesday dinners; and a couple days worth of breakfasts for me. Success!
  • Father’s Day celebration, part 3, and cousin playtime. We headed over to my in-laws in the afternoon. Vera got in plenty of playtime with Anna, and got to open a few birthday presents from Oma and Opa.


And that just about covers it!



How was your weekend? Did you get any meal prep done?
