Mini Babymoon

Last weekend Todd and I made a little trip to St. Louis to watch a baseball game with his parents. Much to my surprise it became a mini babymoon of sorts and I'm so thankful we were able to fit in the special getaway as I wrap up my second trimester.

We met Todd's parents for lunch at an incredible Italian restaurant in The Hill, Zia's. After lunch we walked over to an adorable local bakery before making our way to an Italian grocery to buy the essentials (olive oil, pasta, tomato sauce, etc.).

After spending some time in The Hill, we made our way to the stadium. Sadly the Cardinals lost, but we had a great time at the game. Hot dogs and cotton candy were consumed, and Crosbi got two cute Cardinals onesies from Grandpa Tim!

The next morning we hit the coolest little diner in the historic Soulard district. The diner was voted the best in St. Louis and it definitely deserves the title. An obvious breakfast joint for the locals, the staff made us feel right at home. 

After breakfast we said goodbye to Todd's parents and enjoyed a little retail therapy. I'm realizing that having a girl is going to be dangerous for our bank account!

We wrapped up the evening at the Taylor Swift concert. Thanks to a good friend, we had incredible seats. I'm not ashamed to say that I'm a bit of a Taylor fan anyway, but it really was one of the best live shows I have seen. The production was incredible. I would absolutely see it again!

This weekend I'm taking it easy at home. Todd is in Chicago with his closest friends on a guys' baseball trip, and I'm getting a few projects done for the nursery and fitting in some much needed time with my girlfriends. We officially enter the third trimester next week. I can't believe how fast time is flying by!


  1. LOVE the sweet little sweater!! So cute!

  2. OK, a few things:
    1) Could ya BE any cuter in that Cardinals tee? I think not.
    2) The baby sweater coat? Ridiculously adorable.
    3) I love Taylor Swift.
