i didn't really intend to take a week off--but i did. every time i thought about blogging, i got distracted or was caught up in another project and so it just kinda got pushed to the back burner. but here we are! a week later and i'm finally getting around to writing about our previous weekend :)

we had a simple friday evening, bringing dinner in and relaxing at home
davis pretty much gets his own food right now--we don't make him eat our dinner and stick instead to the things we KNOW he'll eat. but he was having a blast eating off of my plate that night, and i would set aside a couple of green beans or some mac and cheese that he'd immediately grab and devour. the boy loves him some mac and cheese :)
saturday morning, i got up and made myself presentable for a presentation on campus. my job doesn't require weekend hours very often, but i was happy to do this one with the career center and got lots of good feedback from the students who attended.
afterward, i headed home and we got ready for my mom and grandma to come visit. honestly, saturday afternoon wasn't too exciting--we pretty much stayed around the house and spent a little bit of time outside playing. my brother stopped by since he was in town for all-district band and visited with all of us. mom and grandma offered to watch davis for us that evening so we could go out to dinner for my birthday (which was sunday.) i was intially in a bit of a funk because of the gloomy weather and stressing out about some things, but once we got out and were able to get some time to ourselves, the funk moved on out. the brownie sundae after dinner didn't hurt either!
thankfully, even though i shared my birthday with the super bowl again this year, the steelers weren't playing and it was more of a "normal" football game. we got up and went to church, leaving davis at home to take his nap and spend more time with his gran and gigi. 

after church and his nap, we met them out at rucker john's for lunch, where i got another brownie sundae and singing, this time.

davis was quite entertained by the spectacle of it all.
and when we got back home, he was more than happy to help me open my gifts (small ones, since my main gift this year was the iPhone!)
a life is good shirt! so soft and comfy--and i LOVED the details with the embroidery.
we all settled in to watch the game, and we didn't even do any special food. we had tons of leftovers in the refrigerator, so i think we had leftover barbeque or spaghetti or something like that. so exciting... and as quickly as the weekend began, it was over again. i snapped this instagram photo before davis went to bed that night. i'm sure many of the other working moms can relate with the sunday nights blues...just that feeling in the pit of your stomach that the weekend is over and we're coming up on another long week of busy mornings and evenings that seem all too short in getting to spend time with your child.

(and looking back at all of these, i realized that davis has his wubba nub--pacifier--in every picture. i promise he doesn't have it all the time. but with these last couple of molars cutting through, he has seemed to need it more often lately. i'm not looking forward to the process of weaning from it...)

the night concluded with a cupcake from your perfect cake--my favorite! i actually made it last for several days since i had had so many sweets over the weekend. nothing like indulging over your birthday :)
and of course, most of these photos are instagrams. i think i'm a little bit addicted.

no big plans for this weekend, which is nice. it's been an atypical week with justin's mom out of town and us using a back-up sitter (who is wonderful, but you know how it is--just not davis's routine and he's seemed a little off.) i've only run once this week as well and am going to try and stay motivated to go running tonight. i've hit week 5 of the c25k plan, which has a couple of intimidating days for me as i've looked ahead. i've contemplated repeating some days until i feel up to the "jog for 20 minutes" interval that is scheduled for day 3 of this week....but i don't know. i don't want to wimp out either. maybe we'll see how tonight goes (jog 5 minutes, 8 minutes, 5 minutes) and take it from there.

what are your plans for the weekend?
