Good news – we made it to Wednesday! (And please, if you haven’t already seen this Geico commercial with the camel, go watch the video of it. Cracks. Me. UP.) AND, to top it off, we have our prenatal appointment later this afternoon, complete with our final ultrasound. I cannot WAIT, and am keeping my fingers crossed that Baby Tooth will cooperate and show us his little face. Ohmygod I cannot wait to touch that little face and squeeze those little cheeks.
A whole wheat English muffin topped with peanut butter + iced coffee
Not even a banana thrown in there. Plain and simple.
I was rushing around the house in the morning to find something else to grab and came across this Orchard Bar.
Upon first bite, I wasn’t sure if I loved it, but I quickly changed my tune and devoured the whole thing quite quickly. Loved the apple flavor in it!
I had to run out on my lunch hour to meet Jay at Home Depot so we could pick up a new ceiling fan for Baby Tooth’s nursery. I wasn’t hungry enough to eat my lunch before leaving to meet up with him, so I grabbed my container of grapes that I had packed and hit the road with those.
Green grapes are tasting soooooo good right now, no??
I didn’t wind up getting hungry for lunch until almost 2pm, but by that time, it was time to break out the goods.
I’m tellin’ you guys. I’m all about easy and simple these days. I’ve been way too lazy to make my lunches at night, so when the morning rolls around, I want something I can throw together in about 5 minutes. Hence, the combo above.
I suck at planning dinners these days. There, I said it. I have no desire to make anything once I’m home, and poor Jay just sort of goes with the flow…even though I know he totally misses regular meals. It also doesn’t help when he has softball games planned and then they wind up getting rained out (as has been the case for the past 2 weeks or so…).
So last night, we made the most of what we had, with minimal effort.
We still have plenty of leftover pasta salad, so we had some of that along with a couple of paninis. Jay had the idea to go and pick up some rolls at the bakery instead of using regular bread, and ohmygod they were enormous. We cut probably 1/3 off of each of our rolls, and they were still (as you can see) massive.
I made mine with some sliced deli chicken, Italian blend cheese, tomatoes, onions, turkey bacon, and balsamic mayo (I literally just mixed a little light mayo with balsamic vinaigrette dressing).
It was a huge, carby, delicious sandwich, and I thoroughly enjoyed every last bite. I was huuuuungry, and it was nice to actually have the room in the belly to eat a full meal without feeling totally uncomfortable.
A couple hours later I wanted something sweet, so I grabbed a small handful of Scooby Snacks (I should not buy these anymore, they are trouble) and a watermelon Italian ice.
Still lovin’ me some Italian ice these days – especially the watermelon flavor!
We enjoyed our Italian ices while lounging on the couch, watching last night’s episode of Extreme Makeover Weight Loss, and me constantly scratching my itchy belly…
Seriously guys. It is AWFUL right now. It seems to gradually get worse as the day goes on, and by the time I get ready for bed at night, it’s just terrible. I put my baby oil on in the morning and lotion and a few times during the day but good lord, is it annoying. Anyone have any good itchy belly remedies for me??
