We hope you all had a great weekend and a Happy Valentine's Day. Ours was definitely fantastic around here.
I had been away all week for work and had to miss Cruz's party at school, but fortunately grandma Carol had the day off and went so he wasn't that poor little kiddo with no family. Thank the lord. And not only that but when I got home from work, she was in the kitchen whipping up some of her amazing lasagna...for us, mind you....and then, AND THEN, told Nick and I that she was going to watch C so we could go out.
We seriously have the best family.
So, we didn't hesitate and headed out to Sake Bombers for a late dinner of sushi and sake and then over to Parliment where we sat and had Coronas and played Gender Bender.
Do anyone else love to play the MegaTouch machine while drinking at a bar? No...just me? It's seriously one of my fave things ever.
On Saturday, I had a shopping date with this cute little guy, while we ran out to pick up some shoes for Nick. Of course hitting up the mall always means we hit up Auntie Annie's for a pretzel and cheese. And I finally checked out Omaha's new H&M. Surprising that I hadn't ventured over to it until now, but it was worth it. For Cruz, that is. The kid got so much as per the norm. Just a few of my faves - these undies and this tee. I also picked up the cardigan I wore in the pics below and absolutely loved it, especially since it was under $20 (of course, I can't find it in their online store).
We had gotten a last minute invite from Nick's brother to go to Champion's country club for dinner and drinks for the parents and playtime for the kiddos. I'm not lying when I say playtime. It was a room full of bounce houses, a DJ, mac n cheese, face painting, super heroes and princesses and it was made very clear that parents weren't allowed. It was genius, actually. And so much fun.
Being that we woke up - the three of us, mind you - on Tony and Marcy's couch the next morning, that meant our Sunday was made for laying around watching Box Trolls and quietly playing. If you know what I mean. I did manage to make this tomato tortellini soup for us (thanks Heather!) and it was pretty great.
I will leave you with this little babe, he was quite certainly my favorite Valentine.
