BGP Saturday

in All Posts

Happy weekend!


Do you have fun plans for today?  I do – I’m going to run some errands with Henry all by myself.  I’m actually looking forward to it (the adventure of going out alone, not running the actual errands).  Pray that I survive!  I’ve got a stocked diaper bag, an extra change of clothes for both Henry and I (in case of pee explosions), and my emotional BGP (big girl panties) on. 


The Husband was in charge of breakfast:


He always does the prettiest presentations.


Sunnyside up eggs



Grilled asparagus

A deliciously juicy orange


And coffee.  A big cup of coffee.


In addition to our errands, DadHTP and I have figured out a way that we can exercise together again.  We used to swim together two or three times a week but obviously haven’t been doing that lately.  And we would’ve been walking outside together but it’s too hot out!  But I think we found a creative solution – and Henry can even participate. I’ll be sure to explain later.  Hopefully it will be a success.  I miss my workout buddy.


Hope you have a sweet Saturday!

    I’m moving tomorrow, which means I’m packing all day today! Have fun with Henry!

    I just want to give Maggie a giant hug! She’s so precious.

    You are brave! I still have not taken Marea out on errands. How did it go yesterday with Kristien taking Henry out? Please post about your day of errands! 🙂

    Enjoy it for the experience it is and try not to worry about how much you get done. One of my favorite memories was nursing my daughter in the bathroom stall on our first “solo trip” to Target when she was about 3 weeks old. Even though I was hunched over a dirty, public toilet feeding a fussy newborn; the feeling of success and independence (I CAN do this…I don’t HAVE to have the Boppy all the time) was great. I still smile whenever I walk into a Target stall to potty thinking about it.

    Good luck with the errands! My hubby and I are doing the exact same thing except we shipped our baby boy off to Grandma and Grandpa’s so we can really get down to business. I miss him already but our day will be much more productive with this arrangement. Thank goodness for family nearby! 😉

    Good luck today! Last week my 3.5 week old and I ventured out for or first real outing — to Kroger and babies r us. It went great! Hope yours does too! I learned how to fit alot of crap ink the top of the grocery cart!

    As far as exercise, my husband doesn’t but I’ve been putting Eli in the mamaroo (awesome contraption!) and doing barre videos while he watches. So far it works…most of the time. :). Can’t wait to hear about yor idea!

    We need some gratuitous pictures of Grandpa with Henry… I bet Gpa is soooo in love. 😀

    Hopefully I can come up with something more fun than running errands, but that’s the only plan I have so far!

    Hehe, I love how Henry was chilling on the table with your breakfast. It’s because he’s so scrumptious! 😛

    Big Girl Panties – too funny!
    Husband’s make the best breakfast 🙂
    Did you drink coffee while pregnant? I am debating giving it up before conception…
    Great that your dad is your workout buddy. My dad and I used to run together when I was training for cross-country in high school. Now I live in FL and he’s still in NY.

    Mmmm being that I’m from Orange County, all those orange-hued breakfast goodies remind me of home 🙂
