Let's all start with a little Mamas and the Papas

Monday, Monday... do do, do do do do do do do... (Imagine that being sung. By the Mamas and the Papas, I believe?)

Anyway. Here we are. Another Monday. Another week. And that would mean - another weekend is sadly over.

I had a great weekend, though. So I can't complain. It was one of those "do very little so you feel relaxed and chilled out" weekends, but still: "do just enough so you don't feel like a huge sloth". Perfect.

A few of the things that made this weekend rather enjoyable:
  • Saturday night with the hubster. We rented a couple of movies and ordered in some Thai food. So we gobbled down our Green Curry, Chicken Pad Thai and Cold Salad Rolls on the couch, in front of the TV. Very relaxed. Very nice.
  • Sunday hockey game. I went to watch Andrew play - and was pleasantly surprised when a friend showed up with her 1 month old baby. So. Cute. So. Little. So. So. So. Adorable. I was in heaven.
  • Cook/Bake Fest 2009. Andrew and I got home from hockey and made dinner together: baked salmon with an orange mango sauce and an asian slaw. We made dinner side-by-side as we chatted and laughed and sampled the fare. Afterwards, we made oatmeal raisin cookies for dessert. And they were FAN-friggin-TASTIC. Then we retired to the couch again for tea and cookies.

Those types of weekends aren't very exciting.

But they're pretty darn sweet.

Oh! And baby didn't disappoint her Daddy again last night. Sunday evenings seem to be her favourite time to let her Dad know she can hear him. Andrew put his hand on my tummy and felt quite a few kicks just before bed last night.

Then he put his head on my tummy and baby nudged him in the side of the head, but good! I think she was letting him that he was encroaching in on her space.

You know - just a warning.

This is HER tummy for now. :)


  1. Does sound like a lovely weekend.. and it's so adorable - baby and Dad bonding on Sunday nights :)

  2. Sounds like a lovely weekend. And your dinner on Sunday sounds wonderful.

  3. The weekend sounded sweet, including the oatmeal raisin cookies. It is great to be able to just kick back.
