Sometimes you just need to get away from your surroundings.
My husband and I decided to be spontaneous and take a drive over to Seaside and Cannon Beach. He has been working around the clock and we’ve also been disagreeing on the small stuff, like a stroller! We find that when you’re out for an entire day and can’t run into the other room [me?? never...] you’re almost forced to talk about all the little things that you’ve been avoiding. We started doing this a year ago and it’s been awesome.
We plan to do this at least once a month before the baby gets here. The little getaway, the talking will happen much more than that.
I have a really hard time with breakfast. When it’s this warm, after half a bagel or some greek yogurt, I go for a fudgesickle… at 10am. No shame.
I caved. It got to be too hot and I couldn’t take it any longer. I put on a swimsuit [for the first time !!] and went to the pool. Crazy enough, I even made a friend! We hit it off and next thing, we were scheduling our next pool date. It’s a female, by the way. The belly is a big enough of an “I’M TAKEN” sign.
I recently started swimming and it’s felt ah-mazing. I mean, any time a pregnant woman can feel weightless, why wouldn’t you jump in a pool??
I can’t even count the number of boxes of [gluten-free] mac & cheese I’ve gone through. It seems to be the only thing I can stomach when it comes to dinner time these days.
Don’t worry, these hot dogs are from Whole Foods and have about 5 ingredients, nitrates not included.
I love our new kitchen.
I’ve been having a blast filming cooking demos for our health coaching group. I’m a total nerd, you almost can’t help but laugh when you watch them.
The Mr. worked late so it was popcorn and SATC re-runs for me.
I hear butter is good for the baby’s skin so there was no guilt in pouring it on.
Needless to say, it’s been a wonderful week! This weekend = lots of recipe testing, farmers market and visiting a friend and her new baby!
Hope you all had a great week and a super fabulous weekend!
