Weekend recap

I didn't do a lot this weekend, but I think it was just the right balance (aka - no housework!). Saturday hubby headed in to work at some ungodly hour, and I shifted my butt from the new bed to the living room couch. I managed to fall asleep out there and was almost late for my babysitting gig over at Stella's. She and Willy had the year-end softball tournament to participate in, so I pitched in by watching the little dude in the afternoon. I got to feed the little man his first taste of squash, and I'm sure if my sister ever gets her butt in gear, I'll be able to post pics of the event. I'm not sure how much ended up up his nose compared to in his mouth, but I'm fairly sure I didn't get any in his ears.

On Saturday I also managed to complete the Baby Einstein coat and as soon as I get those pesky seams finished I will post pics. I'm now working on matching Sheepy Pants, because I truly do want my daughter to look like a blueberry.

Sunday hubby and I got up early and after some awesome strawberry pancakes, we headed to the Baby Boom Show. I'm sure I'll regret signing up for all the 'free' draws I did, but I managed to get some really good info from a couple of shops in town that I had wanted to visit, and I found a local woman that does belly casts and belly bowls. I need to have one of those. I managed to miss the doulas, who I was really hoping to talk to, but hubby mentioned that they appeared to be really pushy and would have completely turned him off the idea.

We did a little bit of on-line furniture shopping after the show, and I think we have a couple of stores to check out in our never-ending quest (I know it just started, but I also know how long it takes hubby and I to find something we both like)

Once we got home we watched The Lady in the Water, and while it was nothing like I thought it would be, we both really enjoyed it. I knit like a madwoman the entire afternoon and evening and finally managed to make up the garment that I was lagging behind. I also heard from one of the 'wits that she has located her koigu stash and has it ready to donate to my soaker project. Sweet! Hubby cooked up a tonne of butter chicken which was fantastic. We tried the new President's Choice naan, which I'm not that thrilled with. I really should just make a batch of it, but I've been saying that about chocolate chip cookies for the past 3 months too! Now that I have a bit of breathing room with the knitting I may try either some baking or some scrapbooking tomorrow night.
