My latest pregnancy obsession is egg salad… yum. We had it per my request yesterday for an al fresco lunch at my parent’s place and it hit the spot. Plus a simple salad with some of my homemade balsamic vinaigrette (minus the garlic).
Wraps have been hitting the spot lately too – we’ve been having variations of this the past week. Rotisserie chicken + hummus + broccoli slaw + arugula.
Also loving on stir fry (<- my fave easy stir fry recipes) lately – for some reason soy sauce is really hitting the spot!
I just do NOT like sesame oil flavor right now, so that’s swapped out in favor of olive or canola oil. 🙂
Other than that we’ve been continuing to enjoy meals outdoors at restaurants now that the weather is nice and warm. I went to bartaco in the Mosaic District on Friday evening and their tacos were super good, I had never been before!
My favorites were the falafel taco and the fried oyster taco – so creative and unique!
The warmer weather is really giving me hope and improving my mood because we still aren’t comfortable eating indoors at restaurants, so having the weather on our side is making a big difference and it’s so nice to get out more!
Also giving me hope: I got my first dose of the covid vaccine a week ago, and so did Matt!
Now that more research has come out related to pregnancy + the vaccine (and the fact that antibodies transfer to baby), my OB has been recommending all their patients get it, so that made me feel good about the decision to go for it.
I felt fine after – more tired than usual and with a super sore arm, but otherwise okay. Hopefully round 2 in a couple weeks isn’t bad – I’ve heard that the second one can make you feel more sick afterwards!
Speaking of baby, we’ve been in full nesting mode over here the past couple weeks – getting all our old newborn stuff out of storage, washing and organizing baby clothes, setting up the baby’s room, etc.
Riese’s new big girl bed (affiliate link) also finally came after being backordered for months, so that was exciting! She loves it and we are glad she’s out of the crib early so it doesn’t feel like a direct swap.
I feel like the first, second, and early third trimesters dragged on foreverrrrr and now all of a sudden time is moving quickly. It’s exciting to feel like we finally get to welcome baby soon-ish!
I’ll be 34 weeks this week, and I’m writing a new pregnancy update post that I’ll share with you Wednesday, so stay tuned for more.
I hope you all had a nice weekend!
