How does a dip in a pool sound to a hot 37+6 week pregnant woman? Excellllent!
My friend Lara and her two cute kiddos invited us (I just said us – not idea why – ahh!) over to her neighborhood pool this afternoon. I’ve been avoiding my bathing suit in public for some time (just some shyness about the bump), but I decided a dip sounded great. Luckily we were the only ones there!
Lara is a botanical artist and paints vegetables in beautiful detail! She gave me a set of notecards of her paintings at our low country boil party. I’ve been writing lots of thank you notes lately, and these are just stunning. She sells them in Etsy if any of you want to check them out!
Matt picked me up on his way home from the bakery and we walked together – being chased by a storm!! Luckily we made it home just in time. Although given that I was in a wet bathing suit and cover up, I don’t think a little rain would have hurt.
Speaking of storms, nesting has slowed down from a category 5 hurricane to a summer thunderstorm, but it’s still drizzling in. I bought this exciting piece of furniture for the nursery and assembled it myself today in 10 minutes time. LOVE it – more soon!
Matt also completed another project tonight while I made dinner. We have curtains for the living room now! I was itching for a bit more privacy for nighttime – especially if I’m going to be up all hours of the night. I’ll tell you more about them tomorrow. Very happy with final result!
In typical me style, I made a one-bowl dinner of Ricotta Pesto Pasta.
Whole wheat pasta, cooked, and tossed with cooked zucchini and tomatoes, about 1/2 a cup of delicious grass-fed ricotta cheese and about 1/3 cup homemade pesto. Walnuts and parm cheese on top!
Whole wheat pasta is so much heartier than regular.
Matt proclaimed before dinner was even finished that he wanted ice cream for dessert! It’s usually the other way around so he took me by surprise!
We went to Kohr Bros and both commented on the drive there “we should have just walked downtown!” But Kohr was worth the drive – I got a Snowstorm shake with vanilla custard and Resee’s. I purchased a small, but requested that she only serve me half – I really didn’t need a whole one! Worked out great.
I finished the dishes. Matt finished the curtains. He’s now finishing his baby canvas! Exciting times.
