I know I've been slacking on blogging lately, but hey, at least I've kept up on my weekly pregnancy updates. For the most part, what's been going on in my life gets encompassed in my weekly pregnancy musings… so don't fret… you're not missing much outside of those entries.
BUT, for those of you who want a little more, here's a snippet of what else I've been up to lately…
With Spring time and warm weather come cocktails! Over the past few weeks, I've watched my family and friends throw back some delicious-looking beverages. So, this past weekend, I took matters into my own hands… I quickly whipped up a pitcher of Crystal Light raspberry lemonade, tossed in some frozen fruit and filled up my stemless wine glasses… voia la! A refreshing & a special drink for pregnant me (without crazy amounts of sugar or calories!)
Ryan & I have been on a fresh/healthy kick for dinners lately (that's not to say I haven't been indulging in ice cream and chocolate post-meal). We made an awesome salad to go along with Ryan's infamous salmon dish a few nights ago. Who are we? We never make salad! It was so fresh and delicious - we must do this more!
Ryan also whipped up a new concoction last night… we'll call it "The Ry Guy Bowl"… it has quinoa, steamed veggies, egg, avocado and a soy saucy drizzle dressing thingy… really scrumpscious!
I'm not that tired, but yes, this happened at last week's doctor's appointment… it was raining and I was without umbrella… what can I say?
(Not gonna lie… I was kind of proud parking here and stepping out of the car with my belly sticking out :-)
For the 2nd time in franchise history, the Columbus Blue Jackets made the Stanley Cup playoffs! Ryan & I scored tickets for Monday night's game (April 21st)! We are going to the game with our friends Christine and Joey and are SO excited! We have never been to a hockey playoff game - we heard it's a whole different "
ball ice game." Let's go Jackets!
Did I mention that my brother is getting married this year??!? And did I mention how much I LOVE his fiancé, Anissa?!? Seriously, she is AH-MAZE-ING! I am getting so excited for the wedding festivities to commence!
And remember how my sister Aileen got engaged to the love of her life, Mr. Matt W?! They are also hoping for a wedding later this year! YAY!!!! I can't wait!
