Coming off another beautiful weekend and wishing it never had to end!! Anyone else with me??
It was 65 DEGREES here in the DC area on Saturday and it was unbelievable. We spent the afternoon going for long walks with the pup, eating outside at our favorite local spot… literally acting like it was spring in, well, January. Gahhh I live for days like this.
Annnnddddd now it’s supposed to snow again this week. Make up your mind already mother nature!!
In other news, baby and I are seriously growing over here! I’m officially 20 weeks pregnant (what?!) and let me tell you, I certainly FEEL like I’m 20 weeks. I honestly didn’t really feel pregnant during my first trimester. Of course things felt different here and there, but I was mostly my normal self.
But these past few weeks have definitely changed that. I totally popped a few weeks ago and I feel like my belly is stretching by the DAY! It’s the craziest feeling! I recently bought my first few pieces of maternity clothing to accommodate my growing belly and GUYS, maternity clothes are fabulous. How did I not know this already? They’re stretchy and spandex-y and I want to live in them forever.
I’m in the process of putting together a 2nd trimester update post – especially since we’ll be finding out some BIG news this weekend (hint hint pink or blue 🙂 ) – so be on the lookout for that next week!
Ok Liz, enough rambling, time for the FOOD!
Since the new year, I’ve really been trying to incorporate more interesting salads into our weekly routine. One of my yearly goals is increasing my daily veggie intake, and salads are such a fun and easy way to do that.
This Pickled Carrot, Avocado, and Crispy Chickpea has been one of my favorite combos thus far. It’s tangy and crunchy and creamy and seriously yummy! I tossed the whole thing in a herby cilantro vinaigrette and it’s just fabulous. Serve it up with some warm pita and you’ll want to eat this baby every single day (like I now do!)
Well, that’s all from me for today. Hope y’all have a wonderful week and sending warm spring vibes everyones way 🙂
