Monday morning was spent on my computer – I got all of my grading finished and knocked out a few meetings. At some point, I chowed down on a breakfast burrito. It was SO good. It has been a long time since we’ve had burritos for breakfast. These have potatoes, spinach, sausage, egg, and cheese. Yum.
I forgot to share a picture of our new bed the other day. We finally put the bed frame together. We aren’t sleeping in our master yet (we still need to paint the windows), but once that is done, we will move into this room so I can start setting up our nursery! I am so excited. Plus, we now have a king bed thanks to Jake’s Mom and Dad. SO excited.
The girls and I got out for our 5k Monday afternoon. I think these two love our daily walks even more than I do.
This lunch is so good: rice, broccoli, and teriyaki chicken. I add ranch to it, too. Because why not?
The girls and I waited outside Monday evening for Jake to get home from work. Once he was home, we sat on our driveway for a little bit before finding motivation to do some things around the house.
Jake mowed and weed eated our yard and I cleaned some of our windows. I cleaned the inside of the windows in our master and future nursery, then hopped on a ladder to clean the outside of those, plus the rest of the windows along the front of our house. It’s amazing what a difference it made. Next step – sanding and scraping the inside of the windows in the master, then priming, and finally painting! I am motivated to get them finished.
Dinner was one of my favorite, quick, go-to meals. I love anything that only gets one pan dirty. This meal is so easy to make – whatever frozen veggies you want – we did a mix with broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots, plus a bag of green beans, then I cut up this chicken sausage into bite-size pieces. Add ghee, coconut aminos, and whatever seasoning you want – I used garlic, black pepper, and Everything but the Bagel. Bake at 350 for 30ish minutes, stirring occasionally. That’s it!
This is my favorite garlic sauce coconut aminos.
All ready to go in the oven. I hopped in the shower while this cooked.
I added nutritional yeast to the top of the sausage and veggies and some garlic toast on the side. This dinner was DELICIOUS. And so, so easy. Plus, we had enough for Tuesday night, too. I love leftovers.
Tuesday morning started with the gym, then getting ready super fast for TWO doctor’s appointments. We had our anatomy scan and my normal monthly appointment yesterday. I didn’t have time to wash my hair (I also didn’t want to), so I just pulled the top half up and called it a day.
SO dang excited to see our little man again.
We haven’t spoken with our doctor yet, but the report from the scan came back showing that everything they could see was normal, so we are beyond thankful. They were unable to get all the pictures of the heart and the lungs that they wanted, so we go back in November for those, plus an echo since I have a history of endometriosis. I guess that’s something they do for endo? No matter what, we are praising God for a healthy pregnancy and baby. Plus, I will NEVER complain about getting to see baby boy more often. I still cannot believe we are over halfway. So very ready to meet our guy!
I could stare at his little profile forever.
The cutest little feet you ever did see.
Lunch after our appointments – more teriyaki chicken, broccoli, and rice. Plus a puddle of ranch. I love ranch.
We got out for our 5k yesterday afternoon. I’ve been listening to some new mom/labor/baby podcasts, so I’ve been learning a lot on our walks.
Lu just getting some cuddles in with her brother after our walk yesterday. I got the flu shot at my doctor’s appointment, so my arm was pretty sore all day and I was so sleepy.
This closet is not organized at all, but it’s starting to fill up! This is the nursery closet, which is where I’m shoving all things nursery until we can start working in here. The crib is in another room and the glider is in our living room. Lu also sleeps in this closet – see that pile of blankets on the floor? That’s her bed. She likes to alternate between sleeping at the foot of our bed or in here. It cracks me up.
Leftovers for dinner last night. I heated everything up in a skillet and it was so, so good. I wonder if this meal would’ve been better in a skillet versus the oven…I like that everything got a little crunch to it after using a skillet. Something to think about if you make this!
Coffee before the gym this morning.
I am still doing lots of modifications at the gym, but it feels so good to be able to lift.
I have some exciting things to share with you! I was invited to be part of the Becoming a Mother online course and I just finished going through all of the videos. You can find out more HERE, but essentially this course walks you through all aspects of pregnancy, labor and delivery, and having a newborn. The course officially goes live October 11th and with it, you receive the following: live doula Q&A calls, direct emails with expert advice, a private support community on Facebook, planning worksheets, and 10 video modules to walk you through ALL aspects of pregnancy and becoming a mom. Two doulas, called the Goldcoast Doulas, created everything for this course and they also run the Facebook community. They are SO knowledgable and kind.
If you’re interested in trying this course and want to take it with me, you can use the code BECOMING50 for 50% off! You get lifetime access to the course, so you can access it at any time! I have already learned so much and cannot wait to go through the modules again.
Happy Wednesday, friends!
