Hey guys! Sorry for the disappearing act yesterday – I realize that may have made some of you wonder if I was in labor! No baby yet – I was just really tired in the morning yesterday and decided a nap sounded like a better idea than writing a blog post… and then the rest of the day I was busy with some fun outings and other work.
After a really busy week last week of tons of AnneTheRD nutrition client meetings and blog-related working ahead, this week I’ve been doing a little working ahead but also enjoying some social outings with friends, since I know those will be a little hard to get in for awhile once our new addition arrives!
Monday’s adventure was a lunch date with my good friend Ben from high school! We hit up a Japanese place called Maneki Neko Express, and shared the steamed shrimp dumplings, edamame, and some (cooked for me) sushi.
It was great to catch up with Ben – it had been too long! He is a fellow entrepreneur (he and his wife have a photography as well as a videography company in the DC area) so we always have fun talking business as well as general life. 🙂
As for yesterday, I got lunch with my friend Lisa! She’s also a local entrepreneur (we met through a women’s business networking group) and owns a local t-shirt company (check it out if you’re in the area – cute stuff!). We hit up Pupatella for pizza and salads. Yum!
Followed by pedicures because, why not? Gotta have those toes look nice for the doctors next week, right? 😉 Such a fun afternoon outing!
I had another fun meal out last night – my college BFF Kris is in town from Paris for a big science conference this week, so Matt and I grabbed dinner at Rustico with her and her boyfriend! It was great to see her and meet her boyfriend – we have been spoiled lately because she was just here for a wedding a few weeks ago! I was in the mood for salmon and got their salmon risotto – delish.
Kris’s conference doesn’t start until later today, so she came over this morning, too, and we enjoyed a little more girl time! We took Freyja for a nice long walk and enjoyed the sunshine (finally – it’s been really gray lately) and beautiful fall leaves!
And now, a quick update on the C section plan – we have officially scheduled it for November 24, next Friday! If the baby decides to flip before then, awesome, and if not, that’s fine too. She’s also welcome to choose her own birthday and arrive early if she wants! We’ll see – just going with the flow over here. 🙂 Crazy to think that either way in just over a week we will finally get to meet her!
Have a nice day guys – time for me to get some actual work done!
