Spinach Salad

Pin It
A few months ago, in the earlier stages of pregnancy, I told my husband I was craving a good salad. 
I told him kind of what I had in mind, and then he added some thoughts as to what might go together well.
For some reason I would go grocery shopping, and somehow come home without the ingredients needed to make this salad...I think it was because I didn't want to commit to buying stuff and having extra if it wasn't going to be as good as I wanted it to...
Anyways, I now make this at least once a week. I add little variations here and there, depending on what's in the cupboard.
Trust me folks, it's so yummy!

36 Weeks

Pin It
Ahh, I'm getting SO close!!!
The end is near :)
So many people walk up to me and ask if I'm past 40 weeks because my stomach is so big...yeah, thanks!
Weight gain: 25 lbs! (That's a lot in my book! I only gained 20 with my first)
Wedding ring: Still on. I'm thankful to not have any swelling!
Stretch marks? No sir!
Discomfort: Ha ha, this should just be a given! I'm waking up a lot more throughout the night and I want to roll over onto my stomach SO bad. I am contracting A LOT more often and they are way stronger and last longer, so if I need to bend over and pick something up I kind of have to wait until it's over.
Events: We had a doctor's appointment today! We got to hear the heartbeat again, and the doctor said I am dilated to a 2! Exciting news!
I had my son at 37 weeks, and I am thinking this little guy will make his appearance next week, so we'll see what happens :)

Eternal Girl Etsy Shop Review

Pin It
* Disclaimer:
I received a necklace from Eternal Girl Etsy Shop for free-in exchange for an honest review and spotlight on my blog.

Hello all!
This past week I was contacted by Julia, she is the amazing artist behind the Eternal Girl Etsy Shop.
Why would I use the term 'artist' you might ask? Well, there are over 50 items in the shop, and each piece  is henna inspired, and hand-drawn folks!
After browsing through her shop for literally less than 2 seconds I had already found a few pieces that caught my eye.

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Pin It
So about a month and a half ago I decided that I wanted to start making and trying new recipes.
I thought in order to make this a realistic goal I shouldn't go too crazy, so I decided that I would make one new recipe every week.
That way I didn't feel overwhelmed, but it would be a nice change up for my family.
Well, I've been successful in keeping up with my goal, and I'm excited to say we've added 5 new recipes to our collection so far!

This is one of the new ones we tried out and liked.
This recipe can be a Main Dish or used as an appetizer!

34 Weeks

Pin It
6 weeks to go people!!!
(Although I think he will come about 2 weeks early...it's getting close!)
My sister-in-law just gave birth on Sunday to a beautiful baby boy, and it makes me even more excited to meet our little guy :)
I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July.
We went to a parade in the morning, the pool in the afternoon, and an Angel's baseball game in the evening.
It was a lot of fun.
Ok, so onto the pregnancy updates.
Weight gain: 22 lbs!
Maternity clothes? I caved! I was at Old Navy last week because they had all of their flip-flops on sale for $1, and I wandered around in the maternity section. I found a cute maternity t-shirt on clearance, so I got it.
That's my first 'maternity clothing' purchase for this pregnancy.
Wedding ring? Still on. No swollen fingers here!
Stretch marks? Nope!
Discomfort? Ha! Yes! My Braxton Hicks contractions are a lot stronger and more frequent. I also get this frequent weird pain kind of where my sternum is, it's like a pinched nerve-type feeling. It's really painful.
Events: We had a doctor's appointment today. Since my contractions are pretty frequent he wanted to check everything just in case.
He said the baby's head is really low, but I'm not dilated yet, and the contractions aren't making any progress, so everything still looks perfect!
Also, my husband had some time off last week, so I had him help me get down our boxes with my son's old baby clothes. I want to start washing things and hanging them up in the closet so we are ready to go!
Oh, no name picked out yet....still trying hard to think of something that seems right...
