Reading, Writing, Listening, Driving

April 30, 2012

We are home, long trip under our belts and several hours at the wheel for me. The I-81 trip is a bit longer and often has a batch of traffic (which we hit Sad smile ) but the drive is more straightforward and seems to go just as fast.

I wrote a few BERF posts and did a little reading.

Matt and I shared handfuls of almonds on the ride, and I finished the last (most recent) episode of Pregtastic. No idea why there seems to be a hiatus!? Luckily I’ve moved on to New Moms, New Babies, the motherhood one, which I think will be nice to listen to in advance of becoming a mom. Sadly it seems that NMNB hasn’t made a new episode in a year. What will I do when I’ve listened to them all!?

Speaking of podcasts, here is the first ever Cville Food Bloggers Round Table podcast!!

Once we were home, we put together a quick dinner with surplus ingredients

Red potatoes, boiled, drained and smashed, topped with greek yogurt, S+P, and cheese

Yogurt

Triple yum!

Leftover bean salad with goat cheese (I couldn’t finish this – too much cool cucumber!)

And a pile of local strawberries!!

Plus two episodes of the office and some unpacking.

We’re setting in for a quiet evening. TOMORROW IS OUR BIG ULTRASOUND! I am sooo excited. And nervous. And excited.

Love your vamped up leftovers. I do something similar by the end of the week when I find a bunch of bowls of this and that in the fridge :)

I need to be more creative when throwing together leftovers for dinner- yours always look so good (and so simple!). And local strawberries? Ohhh man. I haven’t seen any local ones around here yet. But I’m going to stock up as soon as I do (same goes for blueberries!).
Good luck with the appointment tomorrow (hope you can sleep well tonight!)

I LOVE boiled red potatoes – they were one of my favorite side dishes my mom made growing up!

I was so anxious about my ultrasound…it was the only time I had high blood pressure during my pregnancy!

I had no idea I’d listen to the whole podcast when I pressed play! 41 minutes later, all I want to do is get in my car and drive to CVille to eat! Thanks for sharing. It’s always nice to hear you talk!

Sunny left Pregtastic (she was host AND producer) to have her baby. She started a new business, New Mommy Media, which will include podcasts and programming for parents. I love the Pregtastic podcasts and I am not even pregnant yet! Hopefully Pregtastic will find a host/producer and continue with their great programming.

I had a boiled potato for dinner last night. So simple and filling.

Good luck! I found that ultrasound to be so cool. . . seeing the four-chambered heart, cerebrum, corpus callosum, three-vesseled cord, kidneys doin’ their thing. Hoping for a perfect result. :)

Yummy looking dinner for being a throw together. Good luck with your ultrasound!

I am interested to see what the ultrasound shows. I know that your first one said you are having a boy, but I’ll be darned if your bump doesn’t look just like a GIRL BUMP! I could be wrong, but if I had to guess, I would say you are having a girl. We’ll see!

Thinking of you this morning! Can’t wait to hear about the ultrasound (and see pics)! What an exciting time!
