This just in: we’re out of bananas. This seems slightly crazy, since I normally buy 6lbs. of bananas at the grocery store almost every week (some for eating, some for freezing). Somehow, it happened. (Note: grocery store adventure on tap for today.) So yesterday’s green smoothie was sans banana but did include spinach, skim milk, blueberries, and raspberries. Sounds delicious, right?
Meh. It got better toward the end, but it never thrilled me. I think the blueberries masked the raspberries too much (how dare they!) and it lacked a certain sweetness that bananas give. Sad day. I still drank it all. That spinach is good for me and while I like veggies more than I did in the first trimester, I still don’t crave them. So I sneak them in where I can, since I want to eat them more than just at dinner.
I’m wearing one of my new Old Navy dresses in the pic above. It’s cute and comfy and I love it. The other dress I ordered was frump-a-dump and awkward and unflattering. It’s getting mailed back. Pronto. Disappointing.
In other news, we ordered the love glove (awkward name x1000) from Amazon for Mosie:
Mosie loves our current hair brush about as much as she loves getting her nails clipped.
Either way, we’ve got to wrangle up some of her fur. Kitty sheds like nobody’s business. I’ll let you know how it works out.
Speaking of hair, you know how they say in pregnancy your hair can get thicker? Well, I read the other day it’s not that your hair gets thicker, it’s that you lose less hair so you have more on your head. Either way, it’s pretty awesome for me, since I only have about 10 tiny hairs to start with. Except I haven’t actually noticed a difference. Pregnancy hair, you can arrive anytime now, just please stay on TOP OF MY HEAD and not my FACE. Apparently that’s another potential pregnancy side-effect. Bearded lady, no thanks.
Question of the day: what time do you wake up every day? It changes for me – sometimes 5am (when I have to commute to work), sometimes 6am, sometimes I sleep in til 7am. When I was marathon training in the summer I got up at 4am to start my runs by 4:30 and beat the heat.
