On Friday night, John and I went to Prasino for a belated birthday dinner. We had seen the restaurant featured on Check, Please! and I've been dying to try the lobster stuffed avocado. From the appetizer to dessert, Prasino delivered. For dinner, I had the braised beef short ribs (so tender!) and John had the butternut squash ravioli. We splurged and had the chomeur maple pudding for dessert.

Once home from my massage, we got the house ready for a "last fling" before becoming parents. It was a low-key gathering dubbed the "Dadchelor Party and Mama-Rama." While the nursery is still in the works, I knew people would want to see it. I made a few pom poms and picked up a box of pink Martha Stewart lanterns to hang above the crib earlier in the week, and John graciously hung them with less than an hour to go before the party. More details on the poms and the nursery coming later this week :)
Sunday was a day of rest. Sleeping in, going to Mass, chatting with friends on the patio, and even a nap. I could have run all sorts of errands for the nursery and baby, but I wanted to soak in the beautiful weather and spend time with John. I guess you could say this weekend was a sort of "staycation-babymoon."
How was your weekend?
