I feel like its taking forever to feel back to 100%...this cold is lingering, that's for sure.
We definitely feel a ton better though!

Friday was grocery shopping day.
I do/see a lot on my bi-weekly grocery days, but seeing this was definitely the highlight:
  I've been waiting (not so) patiently for Hanna Anderson pj's to make their way back to Costco after the long winter. These pj's are definitely one of my favorite kid's items (along with these and these) because they hold up incredibly well and when you buy them at Costco they are about half of the original Hanna Anderson price. I got the cute green striped ones for little brother.

For date night we went to get the best Thai in PDX at Red Onion and we saw The Grey.
Definitely do not see it, even if you've heard it's good.
It was lame and I was stressed out the whole time watching person after person getting eaten by killer wolves. Sounds exciting huh?

Saturday morning Bennett's best friend Avery came over.
They made a huge mess.
 Then Saturday afternoon we decided to go to the zoo for a bit. Chris hasn't gone with us since we got our membership (besides to see Zoolights) and we wanted to take advantage of the non-rainy weather. It ended up that they closed an hour after we got there, but we saw everything we wanted to see. We even got to see the tigers and the lions, both of which are always sleeping out of view!

Sunday morning we went to our favorite breakfast place, Lovejoy Bakers
We always get the same things and they never disappoint. 
After breakfast, Chris had to head to work until he had to play at church later in the evening.
John Mark shared his final message in the My Name is Hope series which you can podcast here
It was so good and I couldn't take notes fast enough!

This weekend I was also inspired to make a few new things: 
(after finally watching Julie and Julia for the first time)

I used up some bbq pork from last week to make some calzones:
(TJ's honey wheat pizza crust, mozzarella, onions, cilantro, bbq pork)
I had also been wanting to make homemade pickles:
(how domestically pregnant of me)
They turned out amazing.
We've been eating them by the bowlful, 
and I'm making burgers tonight just so we can put pickles on them. 
I also created a lovely and healthy kid-friendly lunch consisting of all of The Hardesty's favorite things.
I like to call them banana burritos:
(TJ's whole wheat flour tortillas, peanut butter, honey, banana)

Kind of late for a post, but it's a weekend in review on a Monday so that counts for something right?
Have a great evening friends!

    Ugh, I wish we still had our Costco membership! Pearl just grew out of most of her Hanna Andersson sleepers and I'm kind of having withdrawals. They were by far the best ones we had.

    I LOVE making homemade pickles!! So easy and so much better than store bought. And those calzones are making me hungry!
