The First Weekend of February

A weekend really can't start off too poorly when it begins with a baby shower.  Especially when it's a baby shower for our littlest nephew!  My sister is seriously rocking this pregnancy and looks amazing.  She got many beautiful gifts this weekend, and lots of love for baby E.  We can't wait for her second shower closer to her home, in just two weeks.  And then, the due date is just around the corner ;)

One of my best friends drove in for the weekend, and we had the best time catch up.  I'm thankful for good friendships, because even though it's been several months, it feels like we saw each other yesterday.  Kelly always brightens up our lives :)

The rest of the weekend involved relaxing at home, and prepping for the week ahead.  I'm so grateful for quiet Sundays- its just what I need to enjoy my home and my family, and plan for the week ahead.  As Molly and Daddy snuggled, I cleaned and meal planned, then spent nap time gathering the week's groceries.  I'm always thankful for fresh produce found in PA during February, especially when it fits in the budget! 

And you guys, if you haven't tried this bean/veggie dip aka "Texas Caviar", it's a must.  I got the recipe from a family member this summer, and it's always a hit.  I made it for a Superbowl treat, and we've even spent the day enjoying the leftovers.  It uses canned beans, but lots of fresh veggies and a light vinaigrette of olive oil, lime juice and vinegar.  Seriously delicious.  I'm planning on posting the recipe later this week.

And for a new month, a new work schedule!  I'm so happy to report that I've managed to get each Wednesday off, and I could not be more excited.  I'm tacking on a extra hour three days per week and picking up another Saturday morning each month, but I'm so happy.  I really look forward to the mid-week break, to regroup and prepare for the end of the week.  I can't wait to spend a day with just Molly.  I seriously need it.

So here's to a new month, a new baby nephew, and a new work schedule!
Happy Monday!
