This weekend has been filled with a mixture of cozy laziness and mild organizing. 

Fruit smoothie and the bump taking a organizing break. (Smoothie: strawberries, banana, blueberry, ground flax seed, and almond milk)

Simplifying my wardrobe (aka packing away things I won't be fitting into the next few months)
and those boxes in the background hold our crib waiting to be set up!

Lunch, coffee & dessert with a friend. (you can even see the sun decided to shine through the cafe windows)

still working on this project

my drive home from my glucose screening test (thankful to have passed, whoop!)

This is what greeted Ben and I when we arrived home on Monday. The view is currently much less white, but the rain is preventing me from running to the middle of the street to take a photo to show you. 

*all pictures taken on my phone*

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!


Happy Late Birthday Dear Husband

I was still slacking on the blogging when this handsome guy's birthday rolled around a few weeks ago. So I thought I would share this wonderful cliche of a kissing photo here in honor of the big two-five milestone. I can't wait to spend the next three quarters of a century together. I also can't wait to witness you being an amazing father to our baby girl. We are going to be two spoiled ladies, her and I.

And to prove that I only forgot to blog about his birthday, and not the actual celebrating part.... I share with you my mom's instagram photo of our third dinner out that week for his birthday.

I love you Benjamin.


Spring Colors

One of my students shared with me that we are expected to receive four inches of snow this weekend. I am choosing to doubt his weather report not because of his trustworthiness, but simply because I need it to be spring. A few of the top reasons being...

1. I no longer have a jacket that fits my bump. 

2. I want to be able to get out of the house and go on evening walks with Ben. We managed a brief walk yesterday but it wasn't very comfortable (see reason #1). 

3. I need some color in my life (my pale winter skin included). So while I choose to ignore the talk of snow please enjoy a few glimpses of colors from last weekend spent with our families. 

A sneak peak of a baby blanket currently in the works...

Some Easter flowers on my mom's table...

A few details from the adorable gender reveal brunch for my brother and sister-in-law. See more of the detail on Jen's Blog.

In case you were wondering I did check the weather forecast. There is talk of maybe an inch of snow before it turns into rain. I can handle the rain...rain melts snow. Oh and the optimist in me is holding on to the sixty-seven degree day showing up on my 15 day forecast. I can wait...for a bit more. 


It's a...

We are thrilled to announce to that the mystery "Baby Z" is a mystery no more.  We can't wait to hold our sweet baby girl in our arms, and I don't think I've stopped smiling since we found out the news. (not that I wouldn't have been smiling if it were a boy...and you know that the ultrasounds technicians never promise to be 100% accurate) If by some chance "she" turns out to be a "he", the adorable clothing that is already piling up may not work out as planned. Something about brightly colored polka dots seem to call my name wherever I go.

Some of my current cravings...

-Root Beer Floats
-Fruit & more fruit...especially grapefruit. I think I could eat a few each day if they didn't involve so much slicing for easy eating.
-Iced Coffee (decaf, ugh haha)  I've been making iced coffee in my french press about once a week and this serves as my afternoon treat when I go back to work after my lunch break. I try to trick myself into thinking it's caffeinated but usually at least one yawn slips through)

Our baby girl is quite the tumbler these days, especially right before we go to bed.  She also likes to greet me with a few kicks right in the morning.

And just because it was too cute- here is the chalkboard sign my sister Beth made for the wonderful reveal party she held for us. Thanks again sister. You are the best :)
