The pictures of Sheff sleeping are representative of this past weekend. I’m glad he has an extra day off school to recover from the weekend (me, not so much. Transportation sleeps for no one!).
Friday, I got to meet up with a friend to try a new-ish restaurant, Helen. They have a fancy dinner, but do a less fancy menu for lunch. Their burger was delicious, but what stole the show was their angel biscuits. They served them with some kind of magic butter – they were so good! That afternoon, I got to get my hair done, and then met up with the boys after to get some work done on the old house. We had pizza for dinner and introduced Sheffield to Hey Arnold! He loved it!
Saturday, we got up and dropped Sheff over at a friends so we could get a good solid chunk of time at the old house getting it prepared. We also got our second king cake in our Tour De Birmingham King Cake – they were the doughnuts from The Heavenly Doughnut, and they were delicious. B and I knocked out an amazing amount of work at the old house – we are so close to being done! Later that afternoon, we had Sheff’s friend and her mom over to watch the AU game, and the weather was so crappy that they ended up staying the night with us.
They left pretty early on Sunday morning, so we went back over to the old house for some more touching up. We watched alllll the NFL playoffs, B took Sheff to basketball, Sheff got to play with the neighbors across the street, I finished off the last of my library books – it was a good and relaxing Sunday for sure.
We also had our other neighbors come over and introduce themselves to us. Her husband is Italian, and they were in Italy for the holidays. She brought over some freshly baked cookies and invited us over for a pasta dinner. I can’t tell you how good it feels to finally be in a neighborhood like this – I always thought that I hated neighbors and wanted nothing to do with them, but this past month has changed my tune in that regard. I am over the moon that Sheff can run across the street or next door and have someone to play with – and of course, to have that connection with the people around us.
I hope y’all had a great weekend!
