Saturday was a fantastic day! Josh and I got up and went to the gym. I took Body Step & walked and he ran & lifted. If you have a significant other, do you like to go to the gym with them? After, I took advantage of the gorgeous weather and went to Isle of Palms to the beach for a couple hours. On the bridge:
I decided to hit up the more “local” part of the beach. It was so beautiful and there were lots of people out walking their dogs (which I love):
When I got home, I got down to business and cleaned the house & did laundry/ironing. For dinner, Josh and I went out- just the two of us! Since we usually only go out to eat once a week, meals out are usually with friends or family. The alone time was a nice change. We had a Groupon to Dog & Duck, so that was the obvious choice for dinner. I got a Caesar salad with chicken (but got raspberry vinaigrette instead of Caesar dressing):
J got a ham & turkey club with roasted sugar snap peas:
For dessert, we used another coupon- buy one get one half off at Menchies. I got a combination of angel food cake & vanilla yogurt with fruit and a random piece of brownie:
J got the tart with lots of fruit. A nice night :)
Pregnancy Update: Week 17 (two pictures, just for fun)-
As I noted in my last post, we had a regular checkup appointment this week. The baby’s heartbeat sounded good and I am right on track with my weight gain!! Craving-wise, I have been having a strange craving for a ham and cheese sandwich (which is really odd because I haven’t eaten ham in years and don’t even like it any more). I haven’t given in yet-haha. Things that have surprised me: how strangers have started to stare at my mini bump. I always wonder if they’re trying to figure out if I’m pregnant or rocking a beer belly ;). Favorite products as of late:
Sarah sent me the Girlfriend’s Guide to Baby Gear and I am obsessed! This is like the registering/purchasing bible. If you have a pregnant friend, this would make an awesome gift. Thank you again Sarah!!
I also am in love with the Boppy Total Body pillow I purchased. I am a LOT more comfortable sleeping now.
Lots of cooking & baking going on over here today! We’re headed to my parents tonight to celebrate my Mom’s birthday and Josh’s birthday. I am making chili, cornbread & a crisp for dessert!
What did you do this weekend??
