Highs:

  1. Easter: We went up to Lake Forest to celebrate with my husbands fam and it was an AMAZING feast - check out the mouth watering pics below.
  2. Photos of our place: We finally had some work finished (there's still more to do) and then after a big cleaning Wednesday morning we had some beautiful professional photos and done of our unique home. Can't wait to share more!
  3. New box of baby stuff: A box of wonderful stuff from Smilo! I will do a whole seperate post but the box includes baby gear designed by scientests for optimizing things like the shape of the nipple on the binky for orthodontic purposes.

Lows:

  1. Crappy weather: You guys it was real feel of 13 degrees on Wednesday!! When I left the house around 6:15am it was all icy and snowy and totally unexpected for April!
  2. Not getting in a ton of workouts: It was a busy week and I wasn't able to squeeze workouts in every day which is tough. Not only because they make me feel good but because I know that ultimately they're good for me and the babe.
  3. A terrible headache on Wednesday: I think it was dehydration. It was one of those days where I looked up and it was 5PM and I had consumed maybe one bottle of water. Cue the Tylenol.

Best Thing I Ate:

Ok it's not exciting but it was the best thing because it was a big FIRST. It was the first "healthy" dinner I have made so far in this pregnancy! And by healthy I mean it didn't include carbs or cheese (well a tiny bit of flour and butter but seriously minimal) - photo below for my Chicken Picatta with Spaghetti Squash, Asparagus, and Bell Peppers.

Weekend Plans: 

My parents are coming in town Saturday night so prepping for their visit and then LOTS of eating. Also going out for a celebratory dinner on Friday night at El Che Bar with a few friends to congratulate one couple that just got engaged over Easter weekend & finally getting together with Heather from Dumbbell Blonde to talk about some exciting things we might work on together!
