Such a Cliche

by Courtney on February 28, 2013

So here we are, last day of February already. I don’t know about you, but I feel like this past month absolutely flew by (although I’m sure vacation probably had something to do with it). Something tells me though, that these next few months are either going to fly by even quicker, or they’re going to draaaaag in anticipation of Baby Tooth’s arrival this summer. Who knows! All I know is that I’m excited for March because we’re definitely planning on starting to get some nursery stuff ready. SO excited!!

But really, let’s talk about some food, shall we?

Last night, I took the time to prep both today’s breakfast and lunch…which is a really smart move on my part since I’ve been dragging a$$ these past few mornings. Breakfast was thoroughly enjoyed at work…

Decaf coffee + a yogurt bowl with strawberries, blueberries, Quaker Oatmeal Squares (my FAVORITE) and some granola. So, so good.

I didn’t photograph any snacks, but there were definitely some throughout the day, including an orange, a random bag of fruit snacks (they tasted freakin’ delicious), and something I know I’m forgetting…but anywho.

Lunch was broken into two parts. Around noon, I dug into my salad, which was packed with lots of good stuff, especially avocado.

Around 3pm, I heated up my mini sweet potato (cooked it last night with the others) and topped it with a wedge of The Laughing Cow cinnamon cream cheese.

Deeeeelicious.

Oh yes, I remember another random snack that occurred this afternoon. That would be pickles. Yes, a cup of pickles.

I had to order in some lunch today at work, and included in the order came a big ol’ container of pickles. So as I was setting everything up, I couldn’t help but snag a few.

Yep, pregnant lady walking around the office with a cup of pickles. I’m such a cliche. ;)

I can’t believe it’s March tomorrow either! It’s so weird to me. I feel like 2013 just started, so crazy.
Keeping busy definitely makes everything fly by.
Haha, I love that you’re walking around the office with a cup of pickles, that’s kind of awesome.
Now I’m also totally craving a sweet potato. That looks excellent.

Quaker Oatmeal Squares are my most favorite cereal EVER. Unfortunately, in NYC they run for about $6 a box so I only stock up when I visit my parents down in Virginia! And yes…I will also need a sweet potato tonight. YUM!

Know what my favorite snack is? A big bowl of popcorn and a bowl of pickles (either dill or bread and butter, I don’t care). I love pickles and will snack on them all the time…and I’m not even pregnant right now! Lol.

Haha, I crave pickles and fro yo all the time and I’m not even pregnant. I think it’s a very valid craving and if I were you, I would just go with it. :)

Hey now, I crave pickles like crazy and I don’t even have the excuse of being pregnant… And it would only be cliche if you were walking around with pickles AND ice cream :P

I had a thing for pickles in the middle of my pregnancy, and I felt like such a walking cliche. ;) Too funny! I can’t wait to find out what you’re having!

I was just thinking about it already being March tomorrow. How did that happen? Wasn’t it just Christmas? ;)

I miss pickles! I always forget to buy them at the grocery store.

Haha! I’m obviously not pregnant, but I eat pickles straight from the jar all the time. No shame, girl! :)

Throw ice cream on there, and then you’ve got the pregnancy cliche :-p

I bet these next few months are just going to FLY BY for you! Before you know it you’ll be saying that you can’t believe Baby Tooth will be here in just a couple weeks :)

LOVE the cup of pickles! We were really upset last week when we got home from grocery shopping and realized we left the bag with ketchup and pickles at the store. :-( I’ve been craving them ever since!

How in the hell is it March already?! Holy crap.
OMG, I could NOT get enough pickles when I was pregnant with the boys, I didn’t crave them at all with my 2nd, but 1st and 3rd…NEEDED them!!!

I used to love pickles but when I was pregnant I couldn’t stomach them! The same thing actually happened with peanut butter and sweets too.

Woa. A baked sweet potato with Laughing Cow cinnamon cream cheese? That sounds like HEAVEN.

No but the month really DID fly by! It’s crazy to think about it like that. I’m ready for march to come so the weather gets warmer!

Baha, LOVE the cup of pickles! It may be a bit cliche, but it would be so wrong if you weren’t craving pickles, right? ;)

Yummm…fruit snacks! It has been FAR too long since I have eaten a package of those super yummy snacks. The Welch’s brand is my favorite!

I didn’t have any weird cravings the first time around but during the pregnancy of our second son, I walked past a pickle-on-a-stick stand at Pike Place Market – had to have it! That’s even worse than pickles in a cup! I walked around, eight months large and eating a pickle on a stick! My husband was so kind as to snap a photo and share it to FB
