It’s Friday! And this morning is already going a lot better than yesterday’s because this didn’t happen again:
Oops. Other than that egg-cellent event, not much news to report since we spoke yesterday (and thank goodness for that, because the actual news in the world right now is plenty enough). I made it out for a run this morning!
When people plant massive bushes that take up half the sidewalk, I get mad. #RunnerProbs
I took a few walk breaks on the hills, but otherwise didn’t feel too bad on this run. It’s hard to not constantly think and talk about baby at this point, because every time I do anything I can’t help but wonder if it’s the “last time” it will happen! Will this be my last pre-baby run?! Or do I still have weeks to go?! The suspense is building.
Moving right along to dinner… here’s a plate of good ole’ Southern-style shrimp and grits!
I can’t take much credit for this one because Anthony was the lead chef. He’s in charge of the kitchen when I teach English on Thursday nights. When I got home around 8:30 last night, the table was set! And yes I drink water out of a cocktail-mixing glass.
We loosely followed Bobby Flay’s shrimp and grits recipe, cutting back on the extreme amounts of butter, bacon, and cheese listed in the original lineup (even I have a limit for butter, Bobby). Plus we threw some baby spinach into the grits for added greenery. Roasted brussel sprouts and asparagus on the side, and a few bacon crumbles on top
No better way to end a blog post than with bacon. Have a great weekend!
- What was the “last” thing you did before you had a baby?
- Share your running pet peeves with me! I have so many more. Need to write a whole blog post about it.
