Quite a few highs and lows occurred over the seven days – a low being that I got mastitis again on Wednesday, and a high being the quality time I got to spend with two of my best friends, McKenzie and Kirby. We hosted a Friendsgiving dinner on Sunday evening, which was so much fun. I have never prepared that much food before, and now feel I have to run out to West Elm to get more serving ware! We played Cards Against Humanity afterwards, and (no big deal) I won. Apparently I’m hilarious (kidding).

Other highlights include:

  • Going to Sasha’s grandma’s Slava party on Friday
  • Solids! Isla started solids – she’s had mushed apples, avocados, carrots and sweet potatoes (Mara, please help me! We don’t know what we’re doing!)
  • Moving most of the furniture from our study into our master bedroom (planning a redo!) and created a playroom (mainly just a safe zone for Isla) – we’ve asked for this house for Isla’s Christmas
  • Going to lunch with my mom and our sweet friend at Black Walnut Cafe
  • Seeing my sister’s new town home – they are renting out the house they renovated (I shared lots of photos in the Dream Home series)
  • Trying a new barre class with my friend Jessica at Life Time Fitness (I am definitely not a ballerina)
  • Spending time with Sasha’s aunt, uncle and cousins – Natalia is in town from Los Angeles (has the best job ever at Disney) and I love getting to catch up with her

I hope you had a great week! What were your highlights?

  1. YAY solids!!! Are you doing a different food each day or trying the same food for 3 days straight before moving on to a new one? We do 3 days and then a new one. Eggplant was a HUGE hit this weekend. I love the Isla pictures… sounds like such a good weekend. I hope you’re feeling 100% better now! xx.
