weekend highlights

For the last two weeks, Eric's weekend days have been Sunday and Monday and we've actually adjusted quite nicely to this new schedule (it's WAY better than only having Sunday's with him!) Sunday's we basically lounge around and Eric gets to relax and recoup, and Monday's are spent running around fitting in as much fun as possible! Here's a few of our favorite things from the weekend.

  • Sunday mornings in the Brinkerhoff home are pretty exciting... for me, ha ha! I get so excited to see Mia's reaction when she realizes Eric is home! She jumps on our bed, screams, laughs, squeals, pounds on Eric until she settles down enough to snuggle between the two of us and watch "monkey George" on one of our phones while we all relax and cuddle!
  • Sunday night movie and popcorn. Easily Mia's favorite tradition that's developed over the past few months!
  • Shopping 'til we dropped, literally! It's been so long since the 3 of us have shopped together and I forgot how exhausting it is!
  • Eating ice cream cones.... with a spoon! Of course our daughter would get so excited over using a spoon vs licking the ice cream and making a total mess of her face :)
  • Finally picking out my birthday gift from Eric. He's been begging me to do it since January but I had to try them on in person instead of just browsing the internet. We finally settled on a gorgeous Michael Kors watch (where are the heart eye emojis on this keyboard?!)
  • Letting Mia climb all over the germ infested, waste of money, little car things. She finally settled on the bus but it ate up our 4 quarters without turning on. So Eric just shook the bus himself to give her a little ride, ha ha! Luckily for us, she was completely oblivious as she stared dreamily at her "buddy" the whole time. I think someone developed a crush on Arthur yesterday? ha ha!
  • All the good food. So much good food. Which I'm totally regretting today.

I wish weekends didn't have to end... don't we all?! Until the next one!...

Mia is so adorable and those little pig tails kill me! Isn't it great to just snuggle up and watch a movie with them? I still haven't given Aubrey popcorn, I'm so nervous! How old was she when you first tried it?

sounds like a fabulous weekend! we love movie & popcorn nights...but they are quickly being replaced with nights outside walking the dog and swinging!

Sarah said...

That last picture, OMG, too cute!

Brittany said...

Hahaha...I love that Eric pushed the bus himself. You gotta do what you gotta do, right?

Meghan said...

Sounds like a great weekend once again! You have such an adorable little family :)

This girl. She makes my whole world! And looking so grown up too! Where did our babies go?!!!

Julie said...

I love it when you put her hair into the little ponytails - just so cute!!

Kasey Sutgrey said...

She looks sooo big! You gotta love Sundays, sounds a lot like our Sundays over here! And those car things make me cringe but Chloe loves them!

Sara Elizabeth said...

These definitely sound like the best weekends ever!! Love Mia's excitement at finding daddy at home!

Courtney [Sweet Turtle Soup] said...

oooh a birthday watch!!! yay!
Bummer about the quarters, good thing toddlers are easy to please! And easy to piss off. double sided.

Elizabeth Birenbaum said...

YAY for two days home with Eric! It's amazing what the one extra day can do for you!
And seriously, why is Mia looking so old in these photos?! She's a full on toddler now!
(Also, random side note, I meant to text your earlier but I got distracted (like usual lol) and forgot and now have no idea if you are in the same time zone or not since daylight savings time... anyways, for some reason when you comment on my blog, your comments don't come through via email anymore. I even checked my spam folder just in case but nothing! I don't know what happened! I've still been getting them since I check comments on my post on my phone when I'm at work but I can't write back! Help?)

Aww so glad you guys are enjoying the extra time with Eric and are getting to spend a lot of time doing things! Love that Mia is so excited too! It's great you guys are getting to go out and explore the city and not going to lie, I love that Mia eats her cone with a spoon! Too adorable!

Haha! Such a cutie, using a spoon instead of licking. I think it's genius. My girls always want cups but they will totally love this idea!

Kirsty and Seth said...

It sounds like a lovely weekend! I hope you are settling into life in AZ. Whereabouts are you? And you need to post a picture of your new watch, I LOVE watches! :)
