I’ve saved the best for last for my three-part Greece series: Santorini! You can catch up on our trip to Athens and Paros for a few travel tips and recommendations. Santorini is probably the most popular Greek island, and for … Continue reading
I’m in the middle of a three-part series about our trip to Greece! Post one featured Athens and today I’m sharing our experience on the island of Paros. We arrived by ferry to Parikia, the bayside capital, and our Groupon … Continue reading
We’re over half way there to meeting our baby boy! The first trimester seemed to inch slowly and since we’ve announced, time has flown! I can honestly say this has been a dream pregnancy and I’m so grateful that I’ve felt this good. I’ve definitely added more naps in my life, because well, naps are life! I’ve kept up with my normal exercise routine, mostly to balance out the teenage boy appetite my son has. Boy loves pizza :-). And Costco ice-cream swirl. Ok, and their hot dogs. At least Michael and I split the ice cream???
I’ve definitely had some strange cravings—things I haven’t eaten in years. I usually crave something for a week and once I have it, it’s on to the next craving. Early on in my pregnancy, I told Michael, “At some point this week, we have to go to Buffalo Wild Wings and get garlic parmesan wings.” Let me tell you, those wings were perfection! Other foods have included cabbage soup, salads for breakfast with a lot tomatoes and some goat cheese, whole milk, and fruit, such as pears, kiwis, and Cara Cara oranges.
Mommas, what were some of your cravings when preggo?
It’s strange to watch my stomach grow and not fit in my zip-up & button pants. I have a few pairs of pants that are stretchy, so those are my go-to’s until I land in maternity clothes. I have a feeling those days are coming soon!
One of the coolest parts has been feeling him move around every once in a while! It feels like little paint brush strokes on the inside of my belly. And no, we don’t have a name yet. We have one name we keep going to, but nothing official.
Another sweet part of this season is my sister-in-love, Abby, is also pregnant and due a day before us! We just found out this week that they are also having a boy! BOY COUSINS! How fun is that?!
Since we found out that we are pregnant, I’ve been reading and writing in a devotional for expectant mommas. It’s called Waiting in Wonder by Catherine Larson and I’ve loved doing it. I highly recommend it for other mommas-to-be!
Other than growing a human, things have been pretty low-key for us. I can’t believe we are almost in April. On our calendar, we have a fun trip planned to Greece that we are calling the babymoon! Quality-time with Michael, gyros & stuffed grape leaves, and Santorini pathways?! I can barely contain my excitement!
Anyone else have any spring break or summer trips planned?
I’ll close with this adorable onesie a friend gave me!
#29/30 Our trip to Thailand and China was awesome. My favorite part was spending 13 days and nights straight with Michael (insert googily eyes)! (Though the heated toilet seat we had in China is a close second!) We had a lot … Continue reading
#22/30 Thai food is by far my favorite food category. If we order UberEats, my first choice is Mai Thai right here in Old Town! On the journey to Thailand, all I could think about was pad thai, curry, and … Continue reading
#21/30 The jet lag is real. When 7PM comes around, my eyes go wide and I tell myself I can make it another two hours. When 5am comes, I feel I could run a marathon! I know, I know. You’re … Continue reading
#17/30 Our last day of our grand trip was spent exploring The Great Wall of China! Quick facts about the Great Wall: It’s the world’s longest wall and biggest ancient architecture, reaching about 13,000 miles long! It’s around 2,400 years … Continue reading
#15/30 Let me tell you about the time my husband ate a BBQ’d street rat in Thailand. We were on our tour and our guide told us about these “cooks” who catch rats running through the rice fields and proceed … Continue reading
“Certainly, travel is more than seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” -Miriam Beard #8/30 Today is the day! I’ve convinced my 6’2 husband to sit on a plane … Continue reading
