Hi guys :) Hope that you are enjoying your weekends. I have decided that my Sunday posts will include a small pregnancy update section at the very bottom of the post. I will include a bump picture (with my shirt covering the bump). If these sort of things make you squeamish/you don’t like talking about pregnancy, feel free to skip ;)- I TOTALLY understand!
This weekend was really nice! Friday afternoon started off with baking. Josh and I were meeting some of my favorite group fitness instructors for dinner, so I baked them up a batch of my peanut butter flour chocolate chip cookies:
We went to dinner at Mellow Mushroom. Our head group fitness manager got me the sweetest gift, a day-by-day baby guide where you can add your own personal notes & information:
Saturday morning, I was allowed back to taking group fitness classes, low-impact. I took Body Step, I’ve missed it so much! The rest of the day was spent cleaning the house, napping with Josh and Frank, and baking up a batch of granola for my Dad:
Saturday night, Josh & I had a date night in. I made a nice, easy spaghetti squash dinner. Josh had his with meat sauce, I had marinara, and we both had mozzarella on top. I always forget how filling spaghetti squash is. Neither of us could even come close to finishing out bowls :)
We also watched The Other Guys. It was….ok.
Sunday, I headed to my parents for brunch.
The restaurant in their neighborhood has incredible views and delicious food. I got the Carolina breakfast with two scrambled eggs, a double order of fruit, and sourdough toast.
My Mom also gave me some of her incredible homemade cranberry sauce. I can’t wait to dive in- thanks Mama!
The rest of the day will be spent on housework & watching football :).
Pregnancy Update: 13 week photo (again, popping a little more than normal due to the swelling)-
Feeling good! Exercising regularly (low impact: walking or classes). Craving wise…enjoying vegetables and yellow mustard and cantaloupe. Things that have surprised me: 1. how tired I was during my first trimester and 2. how small your bladder feels right off the bat! If you have any pregnancy related questions, feel free to throw them my way and I’ll do my best to answer them!
