Pregnancy. 34 weeks. 4 Days.


I still don’t understand where the time goes.  I can’t believe it’s been almost 10 days since my last post and almost 8 weeks since my last Pregnancy Post! 

Deep sigh…

Speaking of time, I’ve been busy getting stuff ready for the arrival of our sweet baby girl – hard to believe she will be here in less than 6 weeks (unless she decides to arrive late of course).   Who knew having a baby took such preparation?!  I mean, I know when they arrive it’s a lot of work, but man, there has already been so much preparation and she’s still in my belly!

Blueberry Smoothie.

CAUTION: The photographs for this post are terrible. I mean absolutely terrible. Please forgive me, I was famished when I made this recipe. On top of that, I’ve been super tired lately – soooo tired that the thought of dumping a smoothie into a pretty, glass mason jar seemed almost impossible.  Forgive me?  This baby is sucking the life out of me…

I know, I know, it’s only going to get worse…

Baby Shower in Idaho.

Hi y’all! Sorry it’s been so long (I feel like I’ve been saying that a lot lately…). But seriously, I’m sorry! It’s been a hectic few weeks on top of being incredibly fatigued from the pregnancy – something I was warned about, but nothing truly prepared me for it.

Last week, I was in Idaho visiting my family and friends.  I had a really nice time, but I admit, this was the first time I was eager to come back to Florida – something I’d never thought I’d say.  I missed Bryan and the pups more than ever and I just missed being home – I blame the baby.  It’s funny how you get so sick of your normal, day-to-day routine, and you always want what you can’t have – I can’t tell you how many times in the last few months I’ve complained to Bryan about wanting to move back to Idaho (or live anywhere but south Florida), but when I was away, it made me appreciate what I (we) have here.  Home will always be home, but I realized I’m starting to make my own home here in south Florida.

Sweet Potato & Chickpea Burgers.

You’re not going to believe me, but the weather in south Florida has been very chilly these past few weeks.  No joke.  It’s been getting into the 40’s at night and only into the 60’s during the day.  Yes, I realize for most of you northerners, that’s not very cold, but for those of us used to 80 degrees, it’s cold.

I’ve enjoyed the cooler weather.  It makes if feel more like the holiday season to me.  Plus, I get to wear sweatshirts and sweatpants, and drink tea and hot chocolate during all hours of the day (not that this is anything new). 🙂

Tomato Salad – Stuffed Avocados

Hi y’all!  I hope you had a nice weekend and your Tuesday is off to a good start.

What has everyone been up to?  I’ve been doing a lot of pet sitting – this time of year tends to get busy for that!  I also wrapped up my last week doing sea turtle surveys for the season.  It was a bittersweet ending for me because the last month of surveys consisted of zero new nests and zero hatchlings – they were all washed out by Irma.  Fortunately, the beaches are finally starting to look normal again, and we had a very successful season, regardless of how it ended.

Veggie Rice Bowl.

One of my favorite things to do is to find delicious recipes and tweak them.  I tweak them because: 1- I don’t have all of the ingredients on hand or 2- I don’t like all of the ingredients in the original recipe.

I found today’s recipe on Lexi’s Clean Kitchen  and knew I had to try it, unfortunately I didn’t have all of the ingredients so…

Orange-Spice Pumpkin Waffles. Vegan. Gluten-Free.

Yesterday I made Homemade Pumpkin and Oatmeal Dog Treats for the pups…

Don’t they look excited?  They loved them! 

The recipe I used made a huge batch of treats and I didn’t want to make that many because I have little pups, so I only made half, leaving me with a lot of leftover pumpkin.
