A PSA and an Adorable Baby

Good morning! Quick PSA for you: next week is September. YAY!

[you're welcome.]
On Saturday evening, I told my darling husband that we'd had the perfect kind of day: very busy, getting everything we needed and wanted to done, AND I got to take a nap. Is there anything better?

Friday morning was dentist appointments (horrible) followed by a hair cut & color (wonderful). We met up with my sister and brother-in-law at a nearby brewery for happy hour (water is getting old), then headed to a local comedy club. I had never been to a live comedy club, so that was a new experience! C's uncle is a stand-up comic, and he just so happened to be one of the headliners of the show that night in our area... so of course we had to go! It turned out to be a really fun, original date night - can't beat that!

Fun time - we will be back!
Saturday morning was appointments with the eye doctor and several errands - all is well on the vision front (i.e., I'm still blind as a bat) - and we got to squeeze in Chipotle for lunch. We followed that with a stop by the Weecycled Wardrobe consignment sale to see if we could find any good baby deals... a few things caught our eyes, but we left empty-handed. Nothing was exactly what we were looking for, so we decided it was better to leave it for someone who needed / wanted it more.

C's sister and brother-in-law came over for dinner on Saturday night... meaning baby time! We snuggled our sweet niece all evening, and had a great time visiting with them. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly babies change and grow - our niece seems so to have gotten so much bigger and older in the few weeks since we've last seen her. I can only imagine how quickly it will all happen once it's our own baby. Whew!

Is there anything sweeter than a gummy baby smile??
C also made a killer Saltimbocca-style stuffed pork tenderloin for dinner that was absolutely delicious. Recipe coming soon! We paired it with corn on the cob and steamed garlicky red potatoes - a pretty much restaurant-quality meal, if you ask me. The homemade chocolate chip cookies I had on hand for dessert didn't hurt the situation!

Sunday was reserved for yard work, laundry, a SweetFrog trip, and binge-watching NCIS (can't stop, won't stop). We had crockpot BBQ chicken sandwiches for dinner with baked beans and coleslaw - quintessential summer meal, right before fall arrives! Yum. We finished the weekend watching the premiere of Fear the Walking Dead. Anyone else watch?? Thoughts?? I was on the edge of my seat most of the time waiting for something to happen and it pretty much never did. I know, I know, they were setting the scene - but I was nervous for no reason for 90 minutes!

Andddd now we are back to Monday morning (too soon, per usual). It's bound to be a busy week but I am super excited for September being right around the corner. Bring on all the fall things!
