our weekend adventures 


if you follow me on snapchat (@jaevas) then you got to follow along on my devious plan to steal my husband’s car so that he was stuck with my gas-less car… mwahahaha. it worked out perfectly!

snagging an outfit picture with the bump is proving to be quite difficult lately.

year end is already a stressful and crazy busy time for me but one thing that makes it 100 times more crazy is programs trying to spend their 2016 budget by the end of the year! they do that by purchasing a shit ton of incentives for youth, and guess who has to record each one and makes little receipts for them. oh yes, yours truly. lucky me!

cale has been off from work for the past week and has been working on his cloffice {closet office} and this has been the normal scenery in the guest room. i will do a post on all of cale’s projects soon! that includes :
• cloffice
• storage in the laundry room
• wainscoting in the entryway and dining room
• austin’s nursery {both of our projects}
and a couple other projects that are on our mind but not in the near future.
• restain the kitchen cabinets
• install lights under the cabinets
• deck
SO MANY PROJECTS! so grateful for my handyman!

saturday {new years eve}

i really, really wanted to watch the hobbit for some reason, so cale and i cuddled and watched it in front of the fire. yessssss.

time to get ready for our night out!!

el gaucho had such a pretty bathroom that of course i had to get a few selfies with the bump! i’ve looked at pictures from when i was pregnant with mina and i’m carrying a little different with austin. i’m smaller, and i still have a waist! i love my little basketball!

we had made reservations at the infamous el gaucho in seattle and it was delicious! unfortunately, this was the only photo we got with the both of us.
let me just say, new years without champagne just isn’t the same! admittedly, i had a sip of cale’s rum & coke {omg yas} and a teeny bite of his ahi tuna tartare. i about died. i miss it, i miss it so much!!

after dinner, we headed down to key arena to watch the trans-siberian orchestra! the key is right in front of the space needle which was lit up pink for the t-mobile new years fireworks show!

one of the coolest concerts i’ve been to! we somehow managed to get incredible floor seats which was a blessing and a curse. while the view was fantastic, the seats, ehhhh, not so much. this insanely full, refluxy, uncomfortable pregnant mama could not make it through the whole thing, especially on folding chairs with hardly any cushion. whomp whomp!

even though we left early, we made it out in time to beat the crazy new years traffic for the space needle. woohoo! but on our way home we hit the blizzard of washington! it was nuts!! people on the highway were literally going 30 mph because noone could see the damn lines! ugh so scary!


sunday morning we ate breakfast and changed into our game day attire! safe to say, i need a new jersey.

before the game we hustled to home depot to pick up some supplies for cale’s cloffice and i found some steals for christmas next year! woohoo!!

thankfully the hawks pulled off a win…barely. which is sad because it was the freaking 49ers! it has not been a pretty season but lets see if we can stay alive in the playoffs. fingers crossed!

our kittens smelled like dookie so both of their butts got baths. they were not amused.

after the cats got me soaked, i decided to take a candle light bath. i kinda stayed in it for an hour…. don’t worrrrryy, it wasn’t hot. sheesh.


i had the day off {observed new years day!}

i wanted to wear something comfy to go shopping in and usually it’s my lulu’s that i go to butttt i think this top is going to have to make it’s way back to the drawer and stay there until after the baby is born. lulu lemon needs to come out with a maternity line!

britt & i took advantage of our day off and had some shopping fun!

tempura fried pickles. hell yes!!

cale has been on a brownie kick lately and when jaz is gone, he can indulge in the bowl/spoon licking all by himself since i can’t partake {stupid eggs}.

phew! what a weekend! i honestly thought we would get austin’s nursery painted butttt we only got one wall done. we hate painting! i mean, who likes painting?! please come to my house if you do.
other than that, it was a great weekend with the hubby. we always like to do it up for new years since we never have jaz but this will be our last year without a kiddo. while we may not have jazmyne, we will always have austin now. so bizarre to think about!
i am so ready for 2017. 2016 has been wonderful to us but i have a feeling 2017 is going to be amazing!

what did you guys of for new years?!
