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 social outings too.

On Friday, I met up with my buddy Gretchen for lunch – how cute is her sweet little baby? Those cheeks!!

I always love catching up with Gretchen – so fun to chat about all things blogging, pregnancy, maternity leave, etc! Lots of real talk moments. :) I can’t wait for our little girls to have play dates! Also, crazy that her baby arrived at 37 weeks – I’m already past that and if I were her our baby would already be here!!

We met up at our usual fave Café Kindred for lunch. I am still in my super indecisive not sure what sounds good phase of pregnancy food, so I ordered a fruity salad to start (with chicken I ended up not wanting – that avocado, juicy fruit, and the crunchy greens hit the spot, though) and then a tuna melt and chips for good measure. Good to have options! Gretchen and I also shared some fries. :) I brought home the chicken and half the tuna melt for Matt to finish off for me – worked out well because he was working from home that day and hadn’t eaten when I got back!

On Friday night, Matt and I had a cozy night in and whipped up a tasty Blue Apron dinner… more on that later this week.

On Saturday morning, we took a nice long walk with Freyja that involved a stop at Starbucks mid-walk. Half-decaf latte FTW! Also, I don’t remember what it’s like to look down and be able to completely see my shoes…

I have a lot of fitness-friendly pregnancy clothing for summer/hot weather, but I’m definitely lacking in colder weather gear – at this point only 2 weeks ish out it seems silly to buy more so I’m just making do, but that white shirt was definitely borderline – I had to keep pulling it down so my belly wasn’t peeking out. Awkward! Oh well – not much longer now!

We met friends for brunch at Liberty Tavern after the walk – they have a big brunch buffet which is PERFECT for me right now so I can get random tastes of everything and see what settles well. :)

I am definitely starting to slow down over here at the 37 and a half weeks pregnant mark – I had plans to do errands when we got home from brunch but instead I was exhausted and took a 2 hour nap. It was lovely. :)

Dinner that night was another outing – Matt and I grabbed dinner with a friend at our fave Faccia Luna. I started with the arugula, beet, and goat cheese salad (so good), and then I had the chicken parm and Matt got pizza and we shared! Yummy. I’m really into fried/breaded chicken right now.

Yesterday, I took advantage of the fact that I have more energy in the morning and got a bunch of chores done around the house first thing (the extra hour thanks to daylight savings time helped, too) before meeting my friend Heather for a 10:45 prenatal yoga class in Falls Church! It was really relaxing and felt great, and we walked over to nearby Mad Fox Brewery for a post-yoga brunch. We started with salads and then I had the Huevos Rancheros (minus the pulled pork – wasn’t feeling it). I also helped Heather with her fries. ;)

Loved catching up with Heather, as always! We have so much in common – both dietitians running our own businesses focused on intuitive eating, both bloggers, both runners/yogis, and right now both pregnant! She’s due in January and it’s so fun to share this journey together. :)

The rest of yesterday was a mix of relaxing, eating leftovers, and getting some stuff done around the house.

And now – back to my work to do list! This is my last big week of work – I have a packed schedule with a bunch of AnneTheRD nutrition clients that are ongoing (we will skip our December meetings/check in on email, and then hopefully pick back up in January), and I have some behind the scenes blog technical stuff I need to attend to, too.

Have a good one! What was the most delicious thing you ate this weekend? Also, a huge congrats to those who ran NYC Marathon – how was it?!

    Loved seeing you too! Can’t WAIT for our little girls to have playdates together (I literally wrote like, verbatim the same thing you did in my post today, hahahaha) — you’re killing this pregnancy thing girrrrrrrrrl!

    What an incredible weekend with awesome food! It’s hard to pick my favorite food from the weekend, but wedding cake on Saturday followed by broccoli cheddar soup + homemade buttermilk biscuit and ice cream on Sunday at our local ice cream café were top picks!

    Your bump is getting so big!! Crazy how time has flown by. Your Italian dinner looks especially yummy, but you have a ton of great eats this weekend! Best thing I ate was a homemade brunch with all of my favorites :) Oh and a great cheeseburger for lunch on Sat!

    I had a bagel breakfast sandwich on Sunday morning with a few college friends. Perfect for my carb and breakfast sandwich loving self. :)

    Yum, so much yummy food :) I always loved seeing babies when I was pregnant, do exciting!

    Such a nice weekend :) The best food I had was an egg avocado tomato everything bagel at a coffeeshop at Swarthmore, where I was visiting my friend :)

    We were in Vegas last week and I’m just getting caught back up on your adventures. Wow, how intense waiting for baby!! As far as eats, we ate at The Chart House located in the Golden Nugget in Vegas and I had their Blackened Salmon. Let’s just say… no salmon I ever eat again will ever compare. So good!
