32 Weeks and Food.

It's here...32 weeks and the last two months! I'm not sure how that can be the case, but here we are and hopefully the weather doesn't stretch these eight weeks into feeling like 18.

And with that...I've been wanting all of the carbs and citrus. So it's great that I live in the Midwest where the only good fruit we can get this time of year is citrus. And since I love to bake, these bagels  have been on the ready at our house.

But these bagels have been so tasty. I made them on Friday before we left for the weekend and I would eat one every day. And since I have no shame, I'm going to share some pictures...proud bagel momma, over here.

        The boiling process.                          And the cinnamon sugar bagels, pre oven.

And my fav--everything.

And the toppings, of course.
These bagels have been a hit at our house. Lew devoured one last night right before bed and Kyle wants to make bagel sandwiches now. So that's what we'll be prepping before baby gets here, I do believe.

On that note, Bean Sprout is probably just shy of 4 lbs and approximately the size of a cantaloupe.

Should you ever find yourself in Minneapolis with time on your hands, we had some great food and saw some awesome art!
Eggy's Diner - Minneapolis (I had a fantastic burger! And it was so filling)


The MIA is one of my favorite places to go. It's free and houses hours of art for you to peruse. Right now the special exhibit is Egypt's Sunken Cities. We didn't see it, but it looked impressive.

Mr. Pig Suff BBQ is in Shakopee and we got the dinner for 2. Boy was it tasty. Plus our company was pretty great too. 

So, we're home from our little babymoon and the plan is to hunker down and stay cozy until baby gets here. If you need us we'll be baking, doing laundry, and finishing a few house projects.

Happy Wednesday!

A Little Update | 30 Weeks

I have yet to do an update on #beansprout, but I figured now was a good time to do so! We're just shy of 10 weeks out and boy oh boy am I ready for this snow to melt. We've been hammered over and over with snow and cold for the last month and it's making this pregnancy a lot harder than it needs to be. But, all in good time, right?

So, here we are. 30 weeks.

Bean Sprout on L and Lewis on R.


Feeling: I'm feeling ok. Starting to feel large and my hips are definitely starting to hurt more. But with over 2 months to go, I can't complain quite yet.

Cravings: I've not had any true cravings this time around. With Lew, I was always craving fruit...watermelon, citrus, pineapple, etc. This time, a lot of things taste good, but nothing that I have to have. Well...except grape juice.

Aversions: With Lew, I had a ton of aversions...especially in the 1st trimester. I couldn't handle coffee or any type of veggie. This time around, my coffee aversion was much shorter and I've not disliked most of the foods I normally like. So, not much new on that front.

Moving: Slowly! A few coworkers and a student definitely commented yesterday on the fact that I'm now waddling. So...I guess my spirit animal for the foreseeable future is a penguin.

Eating: Most things. I'm trying to stay away from lots of unnatural carbs...sugars, super processed grains and flours...I did fail my 1 hour glucose test that's the impetus for that cut. But it's orange and grapefruit season, so we're stocked up on those in our house.

Wearing: Mostly maternity clothes. Many of my flowy tops still fit, albeit a lot shorter, but they fit. And all of my cardigans will make the journey through to the end. But I have been living in my Blanqi tank and my Target maternity leggings. I'm still powering through with shoes that need to be tied. Mostly because our snow situation is obscene. But you better believe, as soon as it warms up a little bit, I'm pulling out my Birkenstocks!

Sleeping: Hard! Unless I need to get up to go to the bathroom. But my sleep this time around has been much better because of my Snoogle pillow.

Exercising: Not as much as I should. I've been doing some prenatal yoga and that has helped with my hips and back. However, grad school has been a bit that's kept me from exercising as much as I should.

Size: Baby is the size of a head of cabbage.

Movement: S/He is suuuper wiggly. Last night, Bean Sprout was bouncing all over and Kyle could only laugh.

Gender: Unknown. We decided to wait again and I'm getting more antsy than last time around...probably because I really have no clue with this one.

Nursery: Babe will be sleeping in our room until s/he is sleeping through the night. After that, Bean Sprout will move into Lew's room. Hopefully big bro won't constantly be waking the little up! AND...we've got a few decorations for baby's portion of our room. So stay tuned for that! I'm hoping to have the cradle area close to done this weekend. I'll be sharing a new favorite shop too!

Hospital bags: Half way there! Babe's bag is packed. Once the car seat is installed, I'll add the final blanket to the pile. But I still haven't packed mine. I know there's plenty of time, but once mine is packed, some of those clothes I won't be able to wear I'll wait. :)

Misc: Mmm...I think that's about it! Lewis has been on the fence about a brother or sister until lately. Now if someone asks, he'll say he wants a sister. So...only time will tell!

If you have kids, did you wait to find out or did you need to know right away??

Happy Wednesday!
