Hi guys! Happy Friday! Let’s kick this post off with some spring-like recipes since the weather has gotten lovely and warm here in DC and Easter is this weekend! Whether you celebrate Easter or just like delicious brunch/lunch food like I do, here are a couple recipes to try this weekend:
- Sweet Potato Hash with Poached Eggs (uses leftover ham – or you can skip the ham!)
And now, for a couple highlights from the week! Apparently I was a totally lazy blogger this week because when I sat down to review my photos from the week and write this post, I realized I didn’t take that many! Oh well. We did a lot of easy meals/leftovers/not photogenic stuff so that makes sense. And I ate a lot of avocado toast, as always. (See also: avocado toast recipes.)
The only food photo I got was of this delicious kale and farro salad I had at Silver Diner on Wednesday for lunch – Wednesday is my day off from work, and I met up with a fellow mom friend and we dined with the babes in tow. I loooove farro – such good chew.
Riese slept for a little while in the stroller but then wanted to come hang out and see all the action, as per usual! Luckily this was a good one-handed meal. 🙂
Our mom lunch date was right after Baby & Mommy yoga! The first time we went a couple weeks ago we went to Sun and Moon yoga studio, but they were closed this week for spring break and I wanted to check out the other spot I’ve heard about so we mixed it up. This one was at Yoga Works (formerly Tranquil Space) in Arlington. These classes are fun – not a workout at all but nice bonding time with the baby since they have you interacting a fair amount. 🙂 She enjoyed it until about the last 15 minutes of class when she was over it – I call that a win!
We also had Riese’s 4 month pediatrician appointment on Wednesday afternoon – busy day! She’s back up a couple percentiles in weight which is awesome (she dipped a bit last time)… still small but the doctor said she just may be a small baby and that’s fine. So that was good to know that all my efforts with breastfeeding and pumping have been paying off. Also, Riese peed all over me when I was holding her about to put her on the scale, so that was a good time. 😉 #momlife
Anyway – as for other fitness, I got in my workout date of the week with the girls early this week – we met up early on Monday morning for a little strength training (at Bodymass Gym via ClassPass <- $40 off affiliate link).
I hadn’t done bench pressing in ages, so I was pretty sore after!
Aaaaand that’s all I have for you today! I hope you guys have a lovely weekend, and I’ll see you back here on Monday with a recap!
