Morning snowfall, and other weekend things.

On Saturday morning, we woke up to the most beautiful snowfall. I took Gus up to the makeshift dog walk on the roof (they're in the process of building a dog park next to our building) to let him run around a bit. To his own detriment, he's crazy about snow; he spent fifteen minutes playing in it and eating it before throwing up and deciding it was time to head in. Back inside, we dried off, lit a candle, made coffee and climbed back into bed for another hour. The perfect way to start a weekend, if you ask us.

Other weekend things:
*I've been reading this book and we watched this movie on Saturday night (long, but worth it). both have contributed to talks about how we see ourselves raising a son. a son! we're so excited.
*I had one of the best veggie burgers of my life at this place on Friday night, and we discovered this inexpensive Mexican place on Saturday. slowly but surely, we're finding new favorites.
*I had tea with an old friend on Friday, which was so wonderfully refreshing. we need to make more time for one-on-one friend dates these days.
*today, we headed into the city for church, brunch and a few errands. since we'd talked about it but never stopped in before, we visited this bookstore along the way to browse and smell the old books (normal). I found this while we were there, so we're going to make our own pasta! just you wait, husband.
*we made this vegetarian chili last night, and it was delightful. honestly, though, I mostly cook comfort food to make our apartment smell like what I imagine Strega Nona's home would smell like. garlic. sweet, heavenly garlic.
*we jumped the gun and registered for a childbirth class and tour of the hospital where (God willing), we'll be welcoming our little boy. I'm not sure if a class will make us more or less anxious, but there's no turning back now.
*we did some searching for the perfect rocker/glider and landed on this guy, since it looks comfortable enough for late night feedings and large enough to accommodate an adult and a toddler once he gets to the stage when he wants to read this every night.
*between our wacky weekday schedule and my back and acid reflux (that's the latest) issues, my former running routine has pretty much disappeared. instead, I'm walking as much as possible and giving prenatal yoga a spin. this video and this video have been my top choices so far, though, like all prenatal yoga, they make you look and feel completely foolish.
*the struggle to find maternity pants (we're not counting leggings anymore) is real. I've had to exchange three pairs so far. I'll get it figured out sooner or later... probably but not definitely before May.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
