HALLELUJAH FOR FRIDAY!!! We've got a busy weekend planned, we have our first pre natal visit with a potential pediatrician and then our "Great Expectations" birthing class at the hospital. I am excited for both, the more information the better at this point. I feel so unprepared and I know I'm not as unprepared as I feel, but there's so much to know/think about when bringing a HUMAN into the world. Little light convo to start this Friday morning, haha!
Favorite Song: Y'all know me and my music. I have been loving this song lately, it's a remix of Tracy Chapman's Fast Car. I listen to music all the time in Chicago, it's rare you don't see someone walking down the street with ear buds in either on the phone or listening to music. I typically listen to music on the train, then make my routine phone calls to my mom or dad the remainder of my walk.
Favorite Item: Y'all Old Navy's clothing game has been ON POINT for Spring! I just got a handful of maternity/non maternity items from them. I'm trying to buy shirts that don't "look" maternity and I can wear them the first few months post baby. HOWEVER, with that said I want to highlight these black flat mules. Yes, mules are HUGE for the spring/summer!
Favorite Recipe: We have bananas that either need to be thrown away or used. I plan on making some rendition of Banana Bread. This Oatmeal Banana Bread recipe sounds so good!
Favorite Drink: Well folks let's be honest, I haven't had a sip of wine or alcohol since August :( SO needless to say I plan on having THE BEST bottle of red or white wine(I'm not a champagne person) in the delivery room. My mouth truly waters at savoring every last little sip. So let's talk about my morning drink, hot lemon water.
I drink a cup of hot lemon water every morning, and really think it helps! This article talks about all the benefits of drinking hot lemon water during pregnancy. Call me crazy(it hasn't been the first time) but the few days I didn't drink lemon water the past week I got sick!
Favorite Moment: I love to watch my belly move. Sometimes at work I just stop and look down, it's my little moment in the midst of all the craziness, that he or she shares with me. Reminds me of what's ahead and how insignificant so many worries and stressors should be to me.
