Good morning! Happy Monday!
How was your weekend? Mine was pretty low-key. Just waiting on Baby Haupert. Today is my due date (and still no signs of labor), but hopefully, he’ll get some ideas soon!
Some photos and happenings from the weekend”¦
Murphy and I took a lot of long walks. We actually walked so much over the past few days, my hips, butt, and IT bands are actually kind of sore. I think after all of the CrossFit I did during my pregnancy, long walks aren’t going to doing anything to stimulate labor. I need frickin’ box jumps to get this baby out! Haha!
In addition to lots of walking, there was also plenty of rest and relaxation and watching the CrossFit regionals online. Mal and I seriously spent hours watching people work out. Haha!
I ate OMG Pancakes for breakfast on both Saturday and Sunday morning. This pancake recipe is just the best. I love that it’s so easy to make and always turns out well. I love adding almond butter and maple syrup to mine. Holy yum indeed.
I finally embraced some of the special treatment that goes along with pregnancy. I know some women love the special treatment that goes along with being pregnant, but I just feel weird about it, especially when it comes from strangers. I dunno. It’s just me I guess. I always feel kind of bad when people go out of their way. I mean, even at 40 weeks, I turned down a Whole Foods employee, who offered to carry my groceries to my car, because I didn’t want her to go out of her way.
Anyway, the other night, Mal really wanted b.good for dinner. I had already eaten, so I just tagged along for the ride. The employee that rung up his order insisted that I take a free drink because I was pregnant. I tried to turn him down a few times, but he really wanted me to have a free beverage. Haha! It was really sweet, so I thanked him and enjoyed the most delicious beet-ginger lemonade ever. Yay, special treatment!
This is so cool. Just had to share”¦
I was recently contacted by Whole Foods Market to write a summer-inspired post for their “Whole Story” blog. I love WFM with all my heart, so I was more than happy to participate. I decided to write about hiking with my favorite furry friend. I hope you check it out!
