Well heyyyy there, friends! How’s everyone doing this morning?
First things first: no news to share with any of you yet. Baby Tooth is still hangin’ strong in there and doesn’t seem to be too eager to get out anytime soon. Lucky for me, today is also supposed to be starting a heat wave in Upstate NY…I mean, talk about perfect timing, right?
Ehhh, I don’t mean to sound bitter…I’m really not THAT bad. Despite the fact that just merely existing is practically a workout these days, all is good in the hood. I’m more anxious than anything…the waiting game is brutal!
So as for this weekend? Well, I didn’t really take any photos of anything (leading many of you to wonder what was going on with Baby Tooth, which I found super sweet!) and everything stayed pretty low-key for us. So I figured I’d switch things up a bit this morning and share some of my latest pins on good ol’ Pinterest that I’ve been eyeballing. Perhaps you’ll find something to suit your own Pinterest boards!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Pie
If somebody were to come and make this for me, I would forever be in love with you. Not even kidding a little bit.
Banana Bread Brownies
I made these over the weekend, but I ran out of butter so I had to make them sans frosting. They’re still absolutely delicious and actually taste just like banana bread, only in “bar” form. Plus that way, there’s more of the semi-gooey top part that is always my favorite on banana bread.
Maple Bacon Beer Burgers
I’m still most definitely on a burger kick. I seriously crave them basically on a daily basis. On Saturday night, Jay and I went out for a mini date night to Ruby Tuesday and we both wound up ordering burgers. OMG it was sooooo good. I’m enjoying them fully now, because I may need to reel it back in a little bit after the babe arrives. ;)
Summer Veggie and Ravioli Salad
This salad just looks SO incredibly delicious and screams summer, doesn’t it? I pinned it a while ago but I still don’t even think I’ve gone to check out the ingredients at all…mostly because I know I’ll have little desire to actually make it anyways right now. Maybe eventually!
White Strawberry-Lemon Sangria
I’m already dreaming up what one of my first adult beverages will be post-baby. While I have been eyeballing the six-pack of Sam Adams Porch Rocker beer that’s been sitting on my counter (my brother got for me a couple of months ago and I’m SO excited), a nice, refreshing glass of sangria is sounding mighty tasty right about now. We shall seeeee.
DIY Beach Wave Spray
All my life, I’ve longed for hair that would do that whole sexy-beach-wave-thingy all on it’s own. Unfortunately, my pin straight head of hair isn’t usually on board. I’ve tried numerous products over the years in order to “get the look,” but it usually just winds up looking greasy, stringy, and gross (and I’m pretty sure it drives my hairdresser of a mom crazy). I have no idea if this will work, but one of these days, I’m gonna give it a shot!
Alright friends, time to get to work (yep, I’m still stickin’ it out as long as I can!). I’ll catch ya later!
