First timer here...I'm going to be linking up with Andrea, Narci, and Erika for the first time to share my favorites from the week! Here we go!!!!
1. Celebrating my daddy's birthday! His birthday was Wednesday and we met my parents in Annapolis for dinner at the Bonefish Grill...so good! I had never been there before and my friend had recommended to me the Bang Bang Shrimp as an appetizer. That. was. DELICIOUS! Definitely get it if you go. Ben wasn't able to go because of work but my brother met me at our house and we rode to dinner in our new minivan!!! Which brings me to #2...
2. Our new minivan! Since finding out we were having twins, Ben and I knew that we would have to get a bigger vehicle eventually. He has a 2 door Acura RSX (sporty looking car) and I have a 4 door Honda Civic...neither one is a good sized car for four people and a dog! For awhile we were going back and forth between a small SUV, like a CR-V or a minivan and I finally decided on the minivan. I've never wanted a minivan but have decided to embrace it and it's pretty nice! This past weekend we found a 2013 Toyota Sienna that we liked, went to look at it, and bought it! We said goodbye to my car, Ruby, and hello to the minivan! Name is still pending...
4. I don't really call this a favorite but it is a check off of my Summer To-Do list. I took Riley to the vet yesterday for her yearly shots. I had to get them in ASAP because we are anticipating a trip to see family in the near future and I need her up-to-date to be able to board her. I was planning on taking her on a weekend so Ben could watch the girls but I needed to reschedule her appointment so I had to figure out how to take her and two babies into the vet's office. So I tried out our TwinGo Carrier! I've used it a few times before but the awesome thing about this carrier is that it can be worn as two front carriers, two back carriers, or you can snap them together and wear two babies at once! I've used them as front carriers before but Thursday was the first time I used them as a double carrier.
They loved it so much they fell asleep.
5. My last one does not qualify as a favorite but as an unfavorite. I mentioned on Wednesday that Ben's grandma isn't doing well. She lives in Texas and his dad was able to get there on Wednesday so all of her kids are with her. We are in the process of making plans to travel to Texas soon to be with family. So please keep her in your prayers, that she is at peace and as pain-free as possible. And also for us as we plan to travel by plane with two babies for the first time. Thank you!
Thanks friends and Happy Friday!
