Friday Favorites: a dress, a meal, how to make the world’s juiciest watermelon, AND a podcast!
An insta follower recommended Pink Blush to me and I’m in LOVE with this dress. I feel like it would be great pregnant or not pregnant. I haven’t bought the dress yet, but I love pom poms and will likely go ahead and purchase it today :)
One of my favorite meals of this week was yesterday’s breakfast. Oatmeal made with 2% milk and a banana whipped in. Then I topped it with cinnamon-sugar, granola and peanut butter.
On the side I had a La Colombe, which I was sent samples of. I’ve always really like La Colombe’s branding and was excited to try their vanilla latte. I thought it was delicious and makes for something fun to keep in the fridge.
One of the things that has stuck around for my entire pregnancy is a lack of appetite. It’s lame, but I’m okay with whatever my body needs to do to grow this baby. Eating is less exciting when nothing sounds good! It’s such an interesting experience to eat just to take away hunger. Eating satisfying and pleasurable foods can be such a self care act for me, so it’s weird to be experiencing this appetite shift. I’ve found eating out more is helpful, since (for me) cooking with no appetite isn’t enjoyable.
Last weekend my mom served a salad with what was the juiciest watermelon OF MY LIFE! I asked where the watermelon was from and she said just the local grocery store, but this is what she did to make it epicly juicy.
First you cut up half of the watermelon and blend it into a juice.
Then you cut up the rest of the watermelon and pour the watermelon juice over the pieces.
Let soak in the fridge for a couple hours and there ya go! Super juice watermelon!
I was on another podcast! It’s episode #21. I really enjoyed our conversation and opened up about some pregnancy thoughts that has been on my mind. I’m grateful to Kristin for giving me a platform to talk about all this stuff when I definitely don’t have it all figured out.
Happy Friday guys! I hope you’ve all got something fun planned for the weekend :) We’re keeping it pretty low key.
