Last Monday Jason’s cousin Kerry was in town for a wedding and kindly made time to come have dinner with us. We met up at the metro after work, which gave us time to catch up before meeting Jason and heading to Founding Farmers. (Monday was also the first day of Metro’s year-long SafeTrack repair program, and my commute that morning had been a grueling hour and forty minutes. Thankfully the evening commute that day and every subsequent commute has been only 5-10 minutes longer than usual, and this phase of the work on our lines will be done on Thursday.) We had a great supper, complete with kettle corn, and had a great time hanging out.
We call this one Selfie For Our Mothers to Prove We Got Together.
On Friday we decided we needed ice cream, so we picked some up (and some waffle cones) from Safeway. Then I fell asleep on the couch while we watched the basketball finals and we didn’t end up eating ice cream after all. Bummer.
Saturday morning I woke up and worked out. I’m done running (maybe more on that later? There’s not much to report besides that it’s hot and I’m 35 weeks pregnant.) so I did some weights. Then Jason and I did our grocery shopping and started organizing Little Frosty’s stuff. It kills me that he isn’t even here yet and already has belongings.
We had pizza for lunch, then decided in the late afternoon that we should go to IKEA to get a baby dresser. When we make our annual trip (in the fall, of course) we leave in the early morning and the drive takes 25-30 minutes. Apparently everyone else was leaving town on Saturday afternoon, so it took an hour to get there. Our spirits weren’t dampened, though, and we bravely entered the vast maze of Scandinavian furniture.
The showroom claimed that our preferred dresser (the MALM in white oak) was sold out, but it was in the warehouse when we checked. We made it in and out of IKEA in 40 minutes, which may be a new Frost family record. We also picked up a NORNÄS nightstand, some PLASTIS scrub brushes, and PRUTA tupperware. I was really tempted to get a JÄTTESTOR stuffed elephant for our boy, but he has too many things already.
We got home and Jason went to work building the nightstand. I went to work making hamburgers without setting off the smoke alarm (victory!). We had dinner, then got to work on the dresser.
Of course we were at work building it until midnight, but the dresser is operational, and, as of Sunday night, filled with washed and folded tiny baby clothes!
I taught Relief Society on Sunday (Lesson 10: Scriptures, The Most Profitable of All Study) and Jason left on his (seriously this time) last trip. I had taffy for dinner. I’m sure I ate something else but I don’t remember. I stayed up later than I should have and talked my mom’s ear off while she tried to pack for camp.
We got a new blender and I used it to make my first ever green smoothie this morning.
My parents have been married thirty years yesterday!
I went to see Me Before You last night with Lara and Sherri and I think Little Frosty liked that we were sitting tight and listening to loud music; he was cruising all through the movie, enough so that it made me kind of nauseous.
I went out with Courtney and Dani on Tuesday night. Cava at Mosaic and gelato with friends is my new favorite combo. We are going to miss Dani so much when she moves to Utah!!
Also, can we talk about avocado honey orange gelato?! Does not seem like it would be good and yet it really really was!
I had prenatal class 2 of 3 today, which means I am now equipped to diaper and swaddle an immobile doll. This is going to be interesting.
