Happy Friday! For the first time in a long time, we have quite the busy weekend planned. Tomorrow, we are going to go to the dealership to get my vehicle situation figured out. There was a safety recall on my SUV, and the parts won’t be available until August or September! The dealership has offered us a rental, but we’re looking into other options–since we’re leasing, we might be able to bump up to the latest model that isn’t impacted, or go up to the bigger SUV (which wouldn’t be a bad idea, considering how much stuff we packed on road trips when it was just the two of us). Hopefully we will get it straightened out so I can stop worrying about it.
On Sunday, I’m heading over to my in-law’s house for a baby shower for Matt’s sister–she is having baby #2, which means another bff for Aida! I’m going early to help setup, then Matt is coming by later so Aida can make an appearance.
And now, for something else I haven’t done in a while–five things for Friday!
// I recently bought a jumpsuit from Target–it’s similar to this one, looks like the actual one has sold out online! I can’t wait to wear it to a mom’s night out at a local wine bar on Monday. This is kind of a big leap for me, I’m not even much of a romper person, but the colors were gorgeous and I know it will look great with my new heels I showcased the other day.
// The other day I saw a car decal that said “your girlfriend loves my car.” Dude was driving a Nissan Altima. Come on, buddy.
// Matt and I have weeded out a significant number of TV shows. For the most part, they were already shows that we had a fading interest in before she was born. On the other hand, I’ve taken up binge watching during the day. Some of my favorites include 30 Rock, Girls, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and Fuller House (watched the entire season in one day–can you blame me?).
// It’s my birthday month! I honestly have no idea what I want to do for my birthday, which is highly unusual for me–usually I have it planned out months in advance. Obviously, things are different this year and I don’t really know what I want. Maybe a nap?
// We’re still trying to get into a routine around here, and it ain’t easy. I totally get the idea of “eat, activity, sleep,” but it’s difficult to achieve that when baby refuses to settle down for a nap. The one routine we have managed is I usually nurse her around 4pm, then treat myself to a beer or glass of wine and Matt takes over the next feeding with a bottle. We all do what we gotta do.

Aida and I have ambitious plans to go to the new mom’s support group today, followed by a trip to the mall. Follow along on snapchat (@modernkate) to see how it goes!
