Go Out and Have Yourself a Great Weekend

Pre-baby vegetable bounty
It's Friday again, people.  In the land of Motherhood this means absolutely nothing, since it turns out that babies don't believe in giving you the weekend off (who knew?).  I have fond memories of weekends spent boozing and sleeping 'till noon, but it looks like those days are behind me.

The beautiful spring weather has me itching to get out into the garden.  The Muffin Man has kept me just a teensy bit busy the last two months, so my vegetable garden is pretty pathetic right now, but I'm hoping to get a chance to plant some tomatoes this weekend.  I've heard amazing things about Laurel's Heirloom Tomato Plants.

Tomorrow we're headed to the South Bay so the Hubster can check on a work project, which means a trip to the beach!  This will be the Muffin Man's first beach outing which I'm sure will entail me bringing at least three bags full of crap, since I still haven't quite figured out the whole diaper bag thing. Torrance Beach is a quiet hidden gem - perfect when the weather is beautiful but you don't feel like fighting the crowds in Malibu.

So far our wild St. Patrick's day plans include a jaunt to the Larchmont Farmer's Market to pick up a bunch of fresh kale so I can make a kale, pineapple and almond milk smoothie.  Healthier than green beer, if not tastier.

What exciting things are you up to this weekend?
