Our weekend officially began when my mom picked up Sara Beth on Friday night. My parents kept her overnight and all day Saturday so we could have some one-on-one time together. This was SB's first sleepover without us. . . or more like our first night without SB. She did fine. I, on the other hand, had tears flowing down my face after she left. It all turned out OK though. We thoroughly enjoyed our night of uninterrupted sleep and our lazy morning together. To start, Adam made some delicious coffee for us. We chatted for several hours. . . and most of it wasn't about SB.
Next, we headed to Columbia Cafe for a late breakfast. Columbia is a great little restaurant right in our neighborhood. It's a house, a lot like ours, that they converted into a restaurant. They display local artists' work and cook with seasonal ingredients. It's a great little place with lots of local flavor! Adam had french toast and I had an omelet with spinach, tomatoes, and andouille sausage.
After breakfast, we stopped by the Shreveport Farmer's Market and bought a huge bag of Ruston peaches. Adam had big plans for the peaches! He made some delicious gelato later that day.
On our way home, we checked out what was left of a big sale at Ladies in Waiting. We didn't get there early enough for the really good stuff, but I did find a Peanut Shell sling for only $15. I can't wait to try it out next week! We asked about a B.O.B. running stroller while we were there (just checking prices since Sara Beth isn't ready for it yet), but they didn't carry the model we wanted. So, we headed next door to River City Cycling to check there. They didn't have it either, but we did run into the owner, Ian, and ended up talking to him for over an hour. It was nice to have time for adult conversation.
