I hope your week is starting out great! Here’s a little look into what our January was like. As always, so many kiddo pictures to share.
We started the new year in Seattle for Christmas with my family. Matchy-matchy sweater love.
We ended up leaving Seattle a day earlier than anticipated which I am super thankful for, because we were home for the snow that started in the next morning (when we had planned to drive home)! After naps we all bundled up and went out to play in the snow. Snow ball fights, snow angels and snow men. Such fun!
I shared my post on five simple habits that bring me more happiness. Read it HERE.
I am so happy to have farm fresh eggs back in the house! The local source I was buying from before wasn’t an option anymore, so (thanks to craigslist) I found a lady that has 180 chickens she cares for at her home (with llamas and alpacas too) and they lay beautiful eggs that taste so, so good. They’re less expensive than the ones I was buying at the grocery store, way more fresh and the quality is great!
The only time Hunter naps now is if Jacob or I lay with him in our bed to help him to slow his body down. He’s adjusted well to only napping 1-2 times a week when we really needs it, but I have to say, the afternoons I lay in bed with him to give him extra rest, I totally soak the rest in too.
Fun in the kitchen making nutty cacao coconut energy balls. Find the recipe HERE.
Just a quick and simple lunch I love to have when we need something fast and nutrient packed. Canned sardines smashed with a little mayo and old bay seasoning, cucumbers rounds, rice crackers and homemade apple sauce. All foods I pretty much always have on hand for those lunches when leftovers are sparse.
I taught one last body combat class mid January. It is such a fun class, but at 33 weeks the intensity was leaving me a bit more tired than I like to feel the rest of the day. Cannot wait to get back to combat after baby though!
Pregnancy heartburn is no joke, but this has been such an amazing cure. A little shot of ACV when heartburn kicks in and it keeps it away so much better than other remedies I’ve tried. I think it’s actually helped with my stomach acid levels because since I started using it I’ve noticed my heartburn decrease to only a few times a week now instead of once or twice a day.
My go-to no-cook breakfast we all love on Friday mornings. Read more about it HERE.
Some freezer meal prep – pumpkin ricotta gnocchi in the works (so good). To get the link to the recipe and read more check out my 1 month count down to baby #3 post HERE.
