Monday Moments

Hey, everyone! How is your Monday so far? This last week has been a good one, and interesting. I know that at some point you're supposed to start "Nesting". I think I have the opposite of that right now. I want to get rid of everything! It's like, "None of this really matters. I should just throw it all away." Except my books. And my writing things. It's a real problem.

I'm still walking every morning. Well, almost every morning. I was running a few weeks ago a little bit, but the recovery time was crazy so I thought maybe it wasn't the best idea. Then we went to see my doctor on Thursday and she told us that walking really wouldn't do much... better than nothing, but I should be doing more. So I tried a prenatal workout, just once through instead of 3xs like I was supposed to, and my legs were SUPER sore for the next 3 days. No joke, apparently being pregnant means that it takes more than twice as long for my body to recover from workouts. I'm not going to stop though! I ran a teensy bit (probably less than 2 minutes in total) on my walk this morning and I plan to keep adding more, plus I'm going to try that workout some more. 

This was my birthday breakfast. I'll say it again. I could eat croissants every single day for breakfast. Why are they so amazing?

A few weeks ago I started doing a watercolor of whatever fruit/vegetable they tell me is the size of my baby that week. I actually started because my older sister said that she looked for a pregnancy journal where I would have to watercolor the fruit/vegetable, but she couldn't find one! They must exist, right? Anyway, it's actually really fun!

On Wednesday my best friend took me out to the cheesecake factory for my birthday! I felt so spoiled. We got appetizers and dessert on top of our meal. I can't remember the last time I did that. I won't lie, the burger wasn't as good as I was hoping, but it wasn't bad. I've yet to find a "fancy" restaurant with a good burger. I always have such high hopes... no luck! Not so far at least. This cheesecake though... it is the first cheesecake I've had from the cheesecake factory that I was actually impressed with. Key Lime. I highly recommend it!

A few days before my birthday I found out I'd won a giveaway to Bluish & Co. I got to spend 100$. I can't wait to show you guys the pieces I got!

This was our "For Real" meal Brian and I made yesterday. He made the sauce while I worked on the chicken. I loved spending that time together with him. I've kind of always dreamed of cooking together with Brian. It seems so romantic (not to mention the help is nice), and it was fun to cook together even in our tiny kitchen.

I will say it was a little too sweet for my taste. In the future, I'll probably stick to my Momma's recipe. Although, Brian really did like the cornstarch on the chicken!

Last night we ate our last creme brulee from my birthday. Seriously, guys, it's easy to make! Try it!


So, my grandmother had back surgery last week. Brian and I went to visit her at the rehab center yesterday. We got there just as they were starting Sacrament and when we got to her room we found her hobbling her way down to Sacrament. So we went with her and my Aunt and Uncle. As we were walking down we could hear them singing the opening hymn. Someone was playing the piano... badly. In fact. they quit before we made it there and the congregation was singing a capella. My aunt joked that my grandmother better get down there and save him. So when we got there she walked right in front of everyone in her hot pink mumu and forearm crutches, dropped her crutches next to the piano bench, made the kid scoot over and started playing right in the middle of the hymn! It was awesome. I don't think I'll ever forget it!
