Weekend Update

We had a pretty good weekend.  On Friday, we just relaxed since with me working on Saturdays it’s pretty much just a regular weekday.  On Saturday after work, I took a nap and woke up starving for a loaded baked potato from Outback.  By starving, I mean I had to eat right then.  We called ahead and they still said it would be an hour wait.  I wasn’t deterred, though – when something sounds good, I’m like Aimee with her chew toy or food (completely focused).  Luckily, we walked in to Outback, got our little pager, turned around and saw our friends Doug and Elizabeth.  The two of them quickly became my absolute favorite friends when they asked if we wanted to sit with them.  (Their pager went off about 2 minutes after we got there).  We had a good time socializing and catch up with friends.  With my work schedule and the tiredness that has come with the pregnancy, we were beginning to feel pretty anti-social and kind of like shut-ins.  We were also able to go to dinner with our friends Brandy & Ryan on Sunday night, so overall it was a banner weekend for the Cain’s. 

To top it all off, we made a quick stop at Target after dinner on Sunday night.  We always go in for one thing (in this case – masking tape), and yet we can’t come out without spending $50.  Well, this time we came out with a piece of my childhood.  See below for a glimpse of how Travis and I spent the rest of our Sunday night.


Too bad that when I woke up on Monday morning, all the hard parts hadn’t been already completed by my Granny so that I could just take over and finish up the last little bit where it isn’t so hard.  She used to do one with us every summer at the beach – and no one in the world is better or more diligent at them that Granny – she just seems to have that eye for them, or maybe she’s just so stubborn that she wasn’t going to let that puzzle beat her.  Anyways, this is probably going to take a lot longer than those 2 days they’d take at the beach.

Speaking of childhood, is it normal to revert back to things you had as a child during pregnancy?  Old foods have fallen by the wayside, and I’ve discovered all these old things that I forgot I love.  Things like Koolaid, Coke Floats, apples cut into slices (without the peel), Barnum’s animal crackers in the little box, the list goes on, but on a regular basis I feel like I’m about 8 years old again.

  1. Yes! I’ve heard that wanting things from your childhood is completely normal! That’s so fun to bring back the old memories.
