Another day full of activities!

Foodblog-8072

Anticipating a busy morning, I started with a bowl of overnight oats. Pumpkin mixed in with granola and almond butter on top!

Foodblog-8076Foodblog-8065

We got up, got dressed and got going to the bakery to meet up with Matt and Amanda, aka Mandine, who is visiting from the Great Harvest franchise office.

Foodblog-8085

The three of us headed out into the county to the Local Food Hub warehouse for their Community Food Awards luncheon

Foodblog-8084

The babe slept for a good part of the ride, but he began to stir during the awards, so I strolled him back towards the car and we nursed in there before lunch.

Foodblog-8086

We arrived back for a delicious local foods lunch featuring the following:

Foodblog--20

DELICIOUS offerings!! The Autumn Vegetable Salad was my favorite!

Foodblog-8094

Followed by half a Savannah Bar provided by yours truly, Great Harvest : )

Foodblog-8098

Party favors were local apples!

Foodblog-8099

We headed back to the bakery for a while and then Mazen and I went home to nurse and chill a bit before dinner. After 3 nights of excellent sleep, last night was quite difficult with wake-ups every 1-2 hours again. I was with him the whole night, so I had very little sleep! We took a nap together this afternoon that made us feel much better.

Then we got dressed and headed out for a night in the country with Mandine!

[Outfit change due to spit –up – and a new doggie onesie from Maze’s Mimi!!]

Our destination was our favorite tourist spot: Blue Mountain Brewery

Foodblog-8116

Foodblog-8110

Matt and I shared a tasting flight of the beers – I loved them all!

Foodblog-8115Foodblog-8118

We feasted on nachos to start

Foodblog-8126

Played with the baby

Foodblog--2-10

I enjoyed a Caesar salad that was delicious

Foodblog-8123

And finally, the famous pizza. I had 3 incredible slices.

OMGHAPPYBIRTHDAY!!!! Haha. I just can’t get enough of pumpkin this year. I have it for breakfast almost everyday.

And those apple favors are such a great idea! Way healthier than the usual candy favors.

What big plans do you have to celebrate your birthday? More cake? :)

Looks like a day of delicious eats. Glad to see you’re eating more. For awhile there, I was wondering whether you were getting enough calories (I know I was ravenous when I breastfed). P.S. What’s up with Matt and Mandine smushing their faces into each other?

A friend recommended your blog and I just wanted to say that I love it! I’m 6 months pregnant with our first (a girl!) and it’s inspiring to see that you’re both cooking and getting out and about with a newborn. This local food festival looks amazing (and made this pregnant lady hungry!). :)

Happy birthday, too!

Happy Birthday! I am a longtime reader (since Jan. 2008) but have never commented. I had to join the conversation to tell you that for the past couple of weeks, my Google Calendar has dutifully been sending me reminders that a good college friend and my cousin had birthdays coming up on 10/26. I kept thinking, “I know there’s someone else with that birthday. Don’t I have them all in my calendar? Who am I forgetting?” Turns out, it was you! I guess that’s what reading about your last 5 birthdays will do. Happy, happy 30th!
