Maternity clothes? Loving some maternity jeans right & my trusty sweat pants (:
Stretch marks?No Sleep: This isn't a fair question since I have a 17 month old who is teething / hasn't figured out how to cover himself up in the middle of the night after he's kicked off all of his covers...
Best moment this week: Feeling this little one jump & jive!
Have you told family and friends: yep Miss Anything? nope!
Movement: YES! Have been able to feel this wee one moving around earlier than with Moose, but I'm sure that's only because I know what it feels like to have a human swimming around inside my belly
Food cravings: nothing Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, but I've been having headaches like I did with Amos
Have you started to show yet: Definitely! Gender prediction: Ehhhh have switched from girl to boy
Labor Signs: No Belly Button in or out? In Wedding rings on or off?On Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy
Looking forward to: Our beach trip for a long weekend in a few weeks! (:
Last week I decided on a whim to make a batch of salt dough Easter ornaments. I painted a few sets for some sweet babies we know and made another batch for a friend's kids to paint! So fun!
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup warm water
*If you want ornaments to have a hole for a string, use a straw & poke hole through ornaments before baking!
A friend of mine posted the recipe for these delicious paleo brownies on Instagram a few weeks ago so I gave them a shot. I had the perfect guinea pigs coming over (Mike & Kayla + my Mikey) so I made them taste them too. Everyone gave them two thumbs up! I promise you will not be disappointed if you give them a shot! (:
1 c. almond butter
5.5 T maple syrup
5.5 T raw honey
2 T butter (melted)
1 t vanilla
1/3 c. cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1/2 t baking soda
Preheat oven to 325F.
Mix all ingredients in medium sized mixing bowl.
Bake for 20-25 minutes (or until toothpick comes out clean) in a greased (use butter or coconut oil) baking dish (9" x 9" pan is probably best).
(how mama chooses to pass the time while waiting for the brownies to bake)
Enjoy with friends (:
*You can also top with Enjoy Life chocolate chunks, but the store was out of them - so we went without!
