And so it begins….

We had another eventful few days this weekend, but thankfully no heavy lifting or excessive sweating was involved this time.  We drove to Houston on Saturday for a belated Mother’s Day visit and lunch and had such a nice time!  We got to chat a lot and catch up and Jim and Karen treated us to lunch at Pappadeaux which is always SO good.  They put their salad bowls in the freezer ahead of time, and seriously, I love that!  When the salad comes out totally chilled it just makes it for me.  I told Scott that I just need someone to make me a chilled salad and I would eat one with dinner every single night.  We compromised by buying a tub of mixed greens and some cherry tomatoes at the store for me to make it myself.  I’m not sure it will be the same, but we’ll see how it goes.

On Sunday we got up late and headed into Austin to make use of a brunch Groupon that I had that was about to expire.  Had we known that we would get to have some of the best biscuits and gravy ever, we certainly would have used that Groupon sooner.  Anyway, before we left the restaurant, I suggested that maybe we could stop by the nearby baby store to see a stroller in person that I had been eyeballing online.  hahaha.  To my surprise he agreed!  So we headed on over…it was only a few minutes away, so it totally made sense to do it while we were right there.

The store was crazy busy, and the stroller section was a little bit…jam packed, but we managed to see some stuff we liked.  We checked out strollers and car seats and cribs, and I think we might have settled on a  good crib choice.

We like the dark wood color and the price is right.  And it’s one of those cribs that can convert into a toddler bed, daybed  and then later to a full size bed.  (Necessary conversion kits are sold separately….of course.)  But I think it will look really nice up against the yellow walls, and finding the ‘just right’ crib bedding is going to be a fun hunt!  No official decisions have been made yet, but we’ve gotten the ball rolling, and as Scott said, his indoctrination has begun.
