Hello, short week!

Hello, short week!  It’s a two-day work week for me, and the rest will be filled with tons of time spent with family, friends, and the best food ever.  Thanksgiving is my family’s favorite holiday, so to say I’m excited about it is an understatement.  I’m sure there will be plenty of turkey talk later this week.  For now, I’ll share a bit about my weekend, though few photos were taken.  The highlight photo was definitely William and Pops jammin’ out on their guitars on Sunday night.

My dad used to be in a band, and one of William’s absolute favorite things to do is listen to Pops sing, watch him play, and jam out on the mini guitar right alongside with him.  Pops has been playing the guitar to William ever since he was born, and the photos just keep getting cuter and cuter.  William gets so excited!  I don’t have a musical bone in my body, so I’m very grateful he gets this time with Pops!

Let’s back up and I’ll recap the weekend with the few photos I did take.  It was completely low key sprinkled with a few times with family and friends.  Friday night was spent at home, in bed early, catching up on sleep.  Saturday morning included a breakfast date with William’s two girlfriends, Carly and Emily.  With all three little ones it was a bit chaotic, though they all did great, so unfortunately we did not get a picture with them at the restaurant.  We went to First Watch which is one of my favorite places to eat.  Fun fact: First Watch was my first real job as I was a hostess then a server!

A few errands were run on Saturday, followed by an impromptu play date with William’s bud Wolf.

They were fighting about who got to push the grocery cart, so I suggested one of them get in it.  When I Instagrammed this photo, one of my friends commented, “This is like baby MTV Ridiculousness!”  LOL.  These two will definitely be trouble as they get older!

Saturday night was another night in complete with Thai food carry-out for dinner.  We’ve totally been digging this one place in particular.  I want to try to make some Thai food.  Anyone have any good recipes?  Their red curry seafood dish is my favorite!

On Sunday morning, we headed to Wolf’s birthday party which was located at Toy Tyme.  It’s basically a big play room for kids with tons of different toys.  It has everything from trains and cars to kitchen accessories to dress up clothes to a trampoline to chalk and crayons and markers.  I thought it was a great place for a birthday party!  We had only been once before for a play date in the summer.  William loved the kitchen area.  That’s his favorite pretend play right now.  My parents are getting William a kitchen set for Chanukah which will be the most perfect gift ever!  I need to look into getting some of the accessories for his other gifts!  Maybe a shopping cart, too?

And Sunday ended with a lovely family dinner.  On my last post someone asked how I always captured pictures of William smiling that aren’t blurry.  Ha!  I responded by saying I literally take 100 (usually), but there are instances where William is too busy or has no interest in stopping playing for a photo.  Last night was one of those times.


Silly gooses.  So much love between those three.  We missed Jason and Jackson last night, especially because it was Jason’s birthday yesterday!  Happy birthday, Big Brother!  We will celebrate this week, for sure! Love you!

Besides his momma of course, the other two people that William absolutely adores and makes him SO HAPPY ALL THE TIME is his Yaya and Pops.

They are really and truly the most amazing people ever.  If you know them, then you know what I’m talking about.  Literally, in every way possible.  I’m so grateful for them, for everything they do, and for their constant love and support.  There’s nobody like them in this world.  They are one of a kind.

Have a good (and hopefully short!) work week and get excited for Thanksgiving!  Clearly, I am!

What was the highlight of your weekend?
