This weekend was WONDERFUL! Just what we needed after last week. My Mom arrived on Friday night, we had yummy Barley Lentil Soup for dinner with garlic bread before we all retired to bed early.
My favorite thing about the weekends is getting to wake up and snuggle with Gigi and Kyle. Most mornings he's up and studying while G and I sleep in and cuddle. She is such a happy baby in the morning and it was so fun to get to share her giggles with my Mom.
While G took her morning nap, Mom did my Tracy Anderson workout with me and then we bundled up the babe and went out to lunch at the bakery. After lunch, we visited with friends and had a really lovely day. We made a simple dinner and had a quiet evening.
Sunday morning came too soon and it was already time for Nana to head home. She got some good bb cuddle time in while Kyle started making French Baguettes and I whipped up some crêpes stuffed with lemon ricotta and topped with banana and blueberry sauce!
After breakfast, Nana had some play time with Gigi before she had to head for home.
Gigi LOVES her Nana!
Once my Mom headed out, I started getting ready for our Oscar Party! I freakin' love cozying up on the couch and watching the Academy Awards. I sarted making this fantastic vegetarian chili that I make every year (if you make it do not add more than the recommended amount of chilis! It's super spicy just the way it is! Serve it with sour cream, sharp cheddar cheese and cilantro to cool it down) and...
...normally, I would make these yummy cornbread muffins.
But this year Kyle wanted to make baguettes! They turned out so good!
I got out the Oscar books...
...printed up the ballots for voting...
...got out the tiny oscar...
...and started admiring the red carpet fashion!
When my Dad and Stepmom arrived they got right down to business picking their winners.
I made Gigi this silly onsie. (Yes, I know I'm a HUGE dork.)
"Dude, Mom, you are soooo weird. Plus, it's not fair to take advantage of my reflexes by making me hold this thing!"
We had such a nice evening watching the show, eating chili and fresh baked bread, cuddling with the babe and sipping wine. I hope you all had a lovely little weekend too!
