A Busy Watson Weekend + Bell Sleeves On Repeat

This weekend was jam-packed with a lot of family time.  Mark started a family movie night tradition on Friday nights a few weeks ago.  So far we've watched The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe; White Fang; and Annie.  Mark and Darby picked The Lego Movie this time and I wasn't too excited.  However, it was hilarious - lots of laughs for the adults in this one.  Will Ferrell and Chris Pratt are in it, so I should have known.  The number one rule for family movie night is no phones, so Darby always gets a kick out of confiscating and hiding them from us.  We are trying to eat super healthy around here, so I made a beet and goat cheese salad, grilled rockfish, and roasted asparagus for dinner.  It was super easy and yummy.

I got the beets from Trader Joe's and used white balsamic vinegar as the dressing.  I walked down the street to the Yellow Umbrella for the rockfish, asparagus, and goat cheese.  They have the best fish selection in town and are very helpful.  They also have a new sandwich bar for lunch which I've been meaning to try.

On Saturday, Sloan ate pancakes for the first time (made with Kodiak mix) and I had egg white oats with pb and banana (shocker!).

I went to the gym Saturday morning with my friends and we did day 36 (legs and calves) of Kris Gethin's 12 Week Muscle Building Trainer.  I have the free app and I love it.  We followed up with an ab circuit including one minute each of planks, incline bench sit-ups, and medicine ball throws against a trampoline.  We did each exercise four times for a total of 12 minutes.  I made them take a selfie for the blog.  They were thrilled.

On Saturday night Mark took Darby to a Richmond Spiders basketball game and I stayed home, ordered Thai takeout, and started season two of The Big Bang Theory (my idea of a perfect Saturday night).  I was telling my mom how I loved the pianist in the movie Florence Foster Jenkins (which I thought was hilarious but Mark would beg to differ).  Any who, she said if I loved him I should watch the The Big Bang Theory because he's in it...and she happened to have the whole DVD set.  I finished season one in two days and I'm about halfway through season two. 

On Sunday we had a baptism class at our church for Sloan and then I took Darby to a doll tea party.  It was so cute!  We had to borrower a baby doll because she literally does not own a single one.  I asked her if she wanted one for Christmas and she responded, "What would I even do with that?"  They had pink lemonade, tea sandwiches, and a "water fountain with pink chocolate" (in Darby's words as she recapped over the phone for my sister).

I wore this dress and this necklace and Darby wore this dress which I have bought for the second year in a row (in a different color) and is on sale now.

Mark recruited a babysitter for a date night for us on Sunday night so we went to Osaka for sushi.  I got the lollipop roll again!  It is everything.

I wore this top which I got at Wardrobe but it is sold out (similar for less here and here), this necklace again, and these jeans.  The top was a splurge, but a good white top that I can wear any season is always a good investment in my book.  The necklace is simple enough to go with everything yet still adds a nice flair to any outfit.  The flats are Steve Maddens but they are so old and are no longer made.  These are the closest I could find but are more expensive, unfortunately. 

Hope you had a great weekend!  I'm going to see The Legwarmers this weekend so I'm scrambling to put together a good 80s outfit.  I'll report back with the final product!
