(Long) Weekend Recap

Before having Waverly Maye, I really had no reason to document much about our weekends.  It wasn't that we didn't do anything worthwhile before.  It's just that now each & every weekend is more special.  Because of her, we take advantage of every moment that we have together, and each of those moments is incredibly memorable.  And I don't ever want to forget any of them.


We started off the weekend like we do most weekends - at the mall.  Waverly loves to watch the crowds of people & (obviously) to touch all of the clothes.  Now, many of the sales associates even know her name.
Not my proudest statement & a clear indication that I shop too much.


On Saturday, we took this beach babe down to the oceanfront.  It was a little cold for Memorial Day weekend, but someone didn't care.  


My mini-fashionista definitely has a little tomboy in her, too.  My mom said I played with dolls.  Waverly Maye covers herself plays with sand.  Lots of sand.And just like everything else these days, she loves sand so much that she would prefer it in her mouth.  We decided this was our cue to go. 


It's so much easier to wake up on Sunday morning without the fear thought of work the following day, don't you think?  Waverly Maye clearly wasn't concerned either way & was more focused with her Puffs.


I have been looking forward to taking Waverly to the Stawberry Festival in our area since she was in my belly.  It is one of those events that is perfect for families, but really isn't socially acceptable until you have one.  Lucky for me, I have a cute little one who was more than happy to take part in this year's excitement.


That night, our families came over to celebrate the holiday weekend with a patriotic cookout.  We indulged in good food, drinks & games.  I love a festive cookout, especially when it coincides with the start of summer!



We were in such a celebatory mood that we decided to let Waverly Maye practice for her cake smash next month.  I don't think we will have any issues.


On Monday, I got to play SAHM and obviously loved every second.  We happily headed back to the beach.


And once again, Waverly took the opportunity to cover herself (& eat) the sand.  Other than the obvious need to hose this little lady down after our excursion, the only fail of the day was my own lack of packing.  I've decided that in order to be fully prepared for the beach with a baby, you really need a U-Haul.  I guess I will looking into that shortly.


Finally, because twice in two days just wasn't enough, we headed back down to the oceanfront one final time.


 I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend & took time to think of our Vets and the reason we celebrate Memorial Day.  And that you are like me and LOVING the fact that we are already halfway to another weekend.  Happy Wednesday, friends. :)

  1. Love the pictures and I'm super jealous that you are close to the beach! I laughed over your comment about Waverly not having any issues getting into her cake smash....because I really think Sadie WON'T be that in to hers! Maybe if I made her a cake out of green vegetables, since the girl THROWS DOWN her veggies.
