Sorry This Post is Boring

I have become a terrible blogger. For a few months I was on a roll, I was not very busy at work and more motivated to post. Sadly I have lost the motivation. My family is asking for updates on my pregnancy and baby bump pictures, so I will try to start doing better at those.

I am 17 weeks along and so far this pregnancy thing has been a piece of cake. I thought I was getting morning sickness twice, once I think it was the stomach flu, and the other time I took my pre-natal pills in the morning with not enough food in my stomach. I feel super lucky that I haven't been sick. I have also been able to keep up my workout routine, I find that days when I don't get to the gym I don't feel as good and energetic. No weird cravings so far, sometimes I say "I'm craving ice cream." and Chad will remind me that I always craved ice cream, I just like to use that as an excuse to make a special ice cream run.

My stomach has grown (and not to mention so have the "girls") and I have put on a few lbs. After I eat I have to un-button my pants, they just get too tight. I have started feeling the babe move around in me which is my favorite part of this journey so far. We get to find out what we are having one week from today!
This was taken a few days ago, my little brother Landon (6) asked to see how big I was. When he saw this he said my stomach looks really big, but that's because he is a little boy.

Lazy Weekend

We actually got some cold, wet weather this past weekend. I have to admit it was a nice change of pace from the past few weekends we have had. While I do prefer to spend my Saturday out at the beach, watching my husband play volleyball (because I can't play due to my growing bump), reading a book and chatting with my friends,  I did love our cozy Saturday spent indoors.

We woke up and laid in bed for a while trying to think what we were going to do, that wasn't outside. We found a cute breakfast cafe in Seal Beach with great reviews and threw on some clothes and headed south. The food was delicious, we both ordered crepes, Chad ordered a "manly crepe" with meat, and protein and I ordered a sweet banana fosters crepe. Both were delicious. We spent most of the weekend wrapped in blankets, watching movies, and I worked on my talk I gave on Sunday. Overall, a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend. I could use a rainy Saturday on occasion.

PS. I went to NYC last week and am working on getting my pictures up to share :)

Shower Cap

Me at my finest

I just discovered the shower cap this week. Am I the only one who hasn't used this wonderful invention in the shower when I don't want to wash my hair for 1,2,or 3 days?

Since moving into our apt in December, my shower is extremely strong. My hair would still get wet when I tied it up, resulting in messy hair. I was going through an old makeup bag and found this little beauty, and waaalaa, my new best friend. Keeps my hair nice and dry, and lets me go an extra day without washing it!

Do yourself a favor, if you haven't yet used one, do so!
