Weekend at Home

After much deliberation, Chris and I spent the weekend at home.  We had planned on going to Washington DC to visit C's sister but we are headed to San Diego this week for a pre-baby get-away and were in DC in April.  Two back-to-back weekends of traveling seemed like too much and we need to get ready for our trip!  

On Saturday, we went to the Brooklyn/Parma area of town to check out cars.  Currently, we are a two (small) car family and we need something a little more family friendly before February.  We are at the very beginning of our car search but we think we've narrowed it down to an SUV of some sort, small to mid-sized.  We were able to check out the Arhaus Outlet (Yay for outlet shopping!) because it was just down the street from the dealership and I found color inspiration for our living room.  I was able to buy both of these beautiful embroidered pillow shams for about $20.  We are going to keep the walls the original blue and go with a blue/brown color theme.         

Living Room Inspiration
 Here are a few other elements that we've added to the house since we moved in:

Curtains (from the Master Bedroom in our
last house)
New Couch (and Lila)
I just had to share this photo from Saturday night.  Apparently Lila and Max wanted the exact same spot next to Chris on the couch, resulting in a double-decker dachshund pile!

Lastly, on Friday after my doctor's appointment, we stopped at Melt on the way home.  Melt is a local restaurant that specializes in grilled cheese sandwiches.  This is a photo of C's sandwich, the Kindergarten (your basic grilled cheese sandwich, with fries and coleslaw) which he dipped in a side of their homemade tomato soup.  I ordered a chicken Quesadilla because I wanted more protein in my dinner.  The food was pretty tasty and the grilled cheese was really good but service was slow.  Luckily, we were there early (5pm) so we didn't have to wait for a table.
