Weekend: Good Eats

Hi guys! Another Monday… crazy that 2 weeks from today we could be meeting our baby via scheduled C section! Or, you know, maybe not, if she decides to flip out of breech position. Either way, it’s going to be an exciting Thanksgiving week for us I think! :) Matt and I had a low key weekend with some relaxing, some productive time, and some yummy Continue Reading …

Fall Friday

Hi guys! Happy Friday. It’s a pretty one over here – fall colors have officially started to arrive in the DC area! Love those vibrant reds against the blue sky. I finished off my week with one last Friday morning workout date with my girl Chelsea! We’ve been doing a fun routine lately of one DC workout earlier in the week with Kathleen, and Continue Reading …

How to Introduce Common Food Allergens to Kids

Thank you to SpoonfulOne for sponsoring this post. Now that Matt and I are about to become parents, I’ve been paying a lot more attention to news and updates related to babies and kids. Being a dietitian and having a particular interest in food and nutrition, one of the hot topics I’ve been following recently in particular is allergy development, Continue Reading …

Halloween Fun + More Breech Baby Updates

Hi guys! Did you have a fun Halloween? Matt and I ended up deciding to just put a bucket of candy out with our watermelon jack o lanterns (the other one was lit up by the candy bowl on the steps) and to go out to dinner instead. We figure we are about to be home a LOT so we might as well take advantage of the opportunity for a date night out Continue Reading …

Happy Halloween!

Hi guys – Happy Halloween! Matt got me this fun jack ‘o’ lantern maternity shirt for the occasion – might as well have a little fun with the bump while I have it, right? :) (It looks more intense from the side – the bump isn’t that impressive from the front, apparently!) Today is my last day working downtown at my co-working space – I’m really Continue Reading …

Weekend: Hiking + Watermelon Carving!

I kicked off the weekend a little early with a Friday afternoon haircut! My hair was out of control and I know that once the baby comes it will be hard to get out for stuff like this for awhile… glad to have it checked off the list, and my head feeling lighter. :) I always put off haircuts forever! Matt and I grabbed dinner on Friday with my Continue Reading …

Boot Camp, Breakfast + Breech Turning Tips?

Hi friends! Thank you so much for all the awesome tips on what to pack in my hospital bag on yesterday’s 36 week pregnancy update post! I need to hit the store this weekend to grab a few more essentials like some cozy button up PJs and a nursing nightgown, but otherwise I think I should be all set! I kicked off my Friday with a workout date – my Continue Reading …

36 Week Pregnancy Update

36 weeks today! We are officially 1 month out from our due date, and in the timeframe where the baby could essentially come any day. My pregnancy app even has a new button as of this week that says “my baby was born!” Whoa. We don’t think she’ll come early, and I haven’t felt any pre-contractions (Braxton Hicks) yet, but who knows. Time to just Continue Reading …

Battle of the Bumps!

Morning guys! I started my day off my favorite way – with a workout with the ladies! Chelsea, Kathleen, and I hit up Urban Athletic Club’s Glover Park location via ClassPass (<- affiliate link for $40 off) for one of their morning boot camp classes. They are doing a new format now that we don’t love as much as the old one (it’s basically Continue Reading …

Recent Eats + Calendar Nerdiness

Hi guys – I have some good news: sardines and I are friends again after a pregnancy-related hiatus! My favorite way to eat them is in a pita – I mash the sardines with some mayo and dijon mustard, toss some greens in there, and chow down. Delish. Sardines = rich in omega 3’s, low in mercury, and loaded with calcium thanks to the tiny edible Continue Reading …
