I Heart 3-Day Weekends!!

Whoo hooo! I'm loving this nice break from work.

Last weekend I was in Maui for a wedding and things were super hectic. 

Yes- 7 months preggo and in the bridal party. I rocked it!
When I got back to Honolulu I felt like I needed a vacation from my vacation.  After the wedding festivities, I tried to hang out with all of the relatives I haven't seen in awhile.  It was really tough because my time there was sooooo short and I wanted to spend time with so many people! I even missed out on time spent with my girl at Jenns Adventures and a few other high school buddies.  It was definitely a bittersweet trip since we won't be returning till after the baby is born in December. 

When I got back to work on Tuesday, I was playing catch up all week! I felt like I was constantly behind. So this day off is a nice break for me.

We met with my gestational diabetes (GD) specialist on Wednesday and she said my number were really good!

Dr. Silva at the Fetal Diagnostic Institute of the Pacific is  really easy to talk to.  She answered all my questions and made us feel really comfortable. 

I'm really happy with my results, even though they aren't perfect, and confident that I'm doing a good job.

My husband even gave me a high-five as we walked out the door!

On Friday we went to dinner with my uncle from Guam, which was a nice surprise.  I had to be really careful about what I ordered because I know how disatrous eating at restaurants can be.

The place? Macaroni Grill.  One of the worst places to eat for someone on a special diet.  But I made it work =)

I ordered the Chicken Cannoloni (sp??) and it was OK.  I had a salad on the side to round out my meal.  The service was suuuuuper slow. But the company was great.  I only ate half of my dinner because (surprise surprise) it was a tad bit salty. 

We ran a bunch of errands on Saturday and spent the night chillin at home.

Sunday was equally relaxing.  We woke up late and had a light breakfast at home.  Then we headed out for a "cruise". 

You know, when hop in the car and just drive.  A CRUISE- island style.

We ended up at Crepes No Ka 'Oi in Kailua.  It's a cute little place that serves savory and sweet crepes.  I ordered a Bella Italia (tomatoes, onions, peppers, and sausage) and it was YUMMMM. The husband ordered a Pizza Crepe (cheese, pepperoni, marinara sauce, and olives) and was equally YUMMMM.

We sat at the bar in front of a mirror so of course I had to take a picture:

No, nothing is wrong with hubby's teeth.  The mirror was dirty and we tried 8 times to get a decent shot!

After lunch we walked across the street and browsed through a Pier 1.

I gotta admit.  Pier 1 Imports can be a bit pricey for our budget but the way they set everything up just sucks me in! Walking around I started planning our first dinner party when we find a place we want to get settled into.  Not where we live now, but somewhere, someday. God bless my husband for humoring me through that!

After our stroll we hopped into the car and ended up at the beach. Unfortunately, it was WAY too windy for us and we didn't feel like freezing when we came out of the water.  We sat there for a bit, took in the scenery and salt air, and then headed home.

We rounded out the night with dinner/leftovers, an evening stroll, and drive to grab some frozen yogurt. 

By the time we came home, we were walking zombies.  Such a great day, but we were wiped out!

So what are the plans for today? The husband is at work, I get to stay home.  I planned on cleaning the house but apparently that only entails making the bed, washing dishes, and blogging.  I may or may not go to Target later for some household items but we'll see.

Hope you're enjoying your day!
