Be Thankful

It’s snowing and it’s magical and all I want to do is decorate, drink coffee, and write down goals for the next 3 years of my life ūüôā

I hear today is like the biggest party day of the year since not many people have to work tomorrow (if you do, I’m sorry, that’s shitty…unless you like it, then it’s great!). I will be enjoying a grasshopper for sure tonight with my fam. Can’t wait for some minty goodness.

Since Sam has been on break from school this week, I’ve been able to get to a few classes at Alchemy and it’s been so nice. My bod is def slowly getting strong again and it feels so good to move. However, having a baby takes away any core strength I once had. I’m focusing on slowing down and building up those muscles one ab at a time.

This morning I did a super fun workout at Anytime to get in a good sweat before Turkey Day. I did a bunch of different squats mixed with some rowing and then finished off with the following:

5 sets of 5 reps: Power Cleans

Then…3 rounds as fast as possible of:

10 Box Jumps

9 Hang Power Cleans

7 Front Squats

5 Strict Press

I did this all with a 45 pound bar. I finished with 10 minutes of walking at an incline. So great. I got home an instantly downed 2 protein muffins complete with whipped cream and peanut butter and 2 eggs with avocado.

My fave breakfast

So, what else have we been up to lately? Harry is the wiggliest little monster ever so I’ve been trying to find ways to entertain him. I’ve also discovered that every day he looks more and more like his dad. He’s a mini Sam and I’m 100% ok with that because I think Sam is pretty cute ūüôā

Mini Sammy

I’ve also been trying to taste all the lavender lattes in MN and got one from¬†Spyhouse¬†yesterday and while it was $6, I’d get it again and again. So good, so lavender-y. I mean my homemade version wasn’t terrible compared to this one but I think I need to pull the trigger and get that espresso machine…especially if I’m going back to work in a month. Yikes.

2018-11-21 06.38.56 1.jpg

I like you a whole latte

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I can’t effing believe it. My fave day of the year is already here and there’s SO much to be thankful for. I love going around the table and having everyone say one thing they are thankful for this year. Here are a few on my list:

  1. Healthy family
  2. Harry, Ruthie, and Sam
  3. A roof over our head
  4. The best friends who are always up for adventure
  5. The ability to dream big dreams
  6. A family that believes in me
  7. Food and coffee (duh)
  8. Having patience
  9. The ability to vote
  10. Living in a country where women are being more valued every day
  11. Snow, Hallmark, and Christmas music

OK, now I must go pack up Harry’s room as we get ready to head to my parents for a few days. I wish you safe, yummy, loving Thanksgiving. Stay cool ya Turkeys!

La La Lavender

I’m currently having a breakfast appetizer of banana bread as I wait for my steel cut oats to cook. This is my first time making steel oats and I didn’t realize they take 20 minutes to make! I’m used to my 90 second oatmeal but was in the mood for something a little heartier. I will probably top my oats with some milk and brown sugar…maybe a little coconut yogurt and a chocolate chip? LOL who am I kidding more like¬† 5 chocolate chips.

I also went to Target yesterday to get more Almondmilk Creamer (have been obsessed with the Toffee Tidings flavor) and got distracted by the all the holiday flavors. I left with Sugar Cookie instead of the Toffee Tidings. Marketers sure know how to get me. Argh!

So it’s been cold. Freezing cold. It’s OK because I usually spend my day snuggled in a chair with Harry and Ruthie so we stay warm but we’re starting to go a little stir crazy staying inside all day. So yesterday Harry and I ventured out to do some errands and pick up ingredients for a¬†lavender latte!¬†I love lavender lattes and seeing the one in Duluth over the weekend made me want to make my own.

First things first. I had no clue where to get lavender buds…wtf is a lavender bud even? Target or Trader Joes do not have them. My next thought was whole foods but I didn’t feel like driving into the city. After fearing defeat, we drove past a little store called Fresh and Natural on our way home. Sure, what the heck. Might as well try, right?

BINGO. Fresh and Natural def has lavender buds. And many other fun/odd/cool things. The nice thing was that the buds were in the bulk section so you could take as many as you wanted. I love the smell of lavender and filled my little baggie up…the price per pound….$53! Thank god lavender weighs like nothing. I think my total for the lav was $3. I’ll be getting more of this stuff.

I also grabbed some decaf coffee (also in the bulk section) to make my latte because I’m trying to only drink one fully caff coffee a day (my morning cup with said Sugar cookie cream). Before leaving I tried looking for collagen because I am curious about the stuff and wanted a sample jar but only saw a large tub for like $40. Don’t need my hair and nails to grow that bad. Anyone have thoughts on collagen?

2018-11-13 02.22.23 1.jpg

Lavender ‚̧

Back to latte. I started by making the lav syrup in the recipe. I boiled the water and buds and let it simmer. It smelled amazing. I’m adding a small strainer to my XMAS list because all we have is a giant spaghetti noodle strainer and a handful of the buds made it into my drink which was fine but not ideal.

2018-11-13 02.22.21 1.jpg

Sup bud?

Next step was to boil water and sugar then add the boiled lav juice to the sugar water. Pretty sure I may have burned my sugar a tiny bit but it was still yummy.

2018-11-13 02.22.19 1.jpg

See the little buds floating?

Then you basically let the syrup cool, brew some coffee (I used my French Press), and pour that into a mug. Now for the coolest part…the milk. All you do is heat up your milk (I used Fair Life Non fat because I like this kind the best and almond milk has not been my fave lately) for like 30 seconds then give it a good ole shake. Bing. Bang. Boom. Pour that on top and you have a lovely lavender latte.

2018-11-13 02.22.17 1.jpg

I Love Lav

I really want to learn how to make a flower or something with my foamy milk but I’m guessing I need a fancy espresso machine for that. Anyway, I’d highly suggest this recipe! It will hopefully save me $100 in fancy lavender lattes hehe. Then I can put that $ towards a nespresso. I found one on sale at Sur La Table and am hoping Santa brings it…or maybe I’ll get it for Harry LOL.

So the website that has the lavender latte also has a recipe for PB cup coffee creamer. I might try to make that today. Oh and pumpkin bread because you can never have enough pumpkin.

PS what do I use extra lavender buds for?

Cheerio!

Thursday Things

Man, it’s been a busy¬†week. I thought time¬†would slow down being on maternity leave but nope! It just seems to go faster!

Harry turned 2¬†weeks old on Monday and I feel like he’s letting me get a little more sleep each night. Thank you buddy, I appreciate that. I still am feeling a little stressed about the¬†whole breastfeeding thing and might visit the baby cafe either this afternoon or next¬†week. I just¬†want to make sure he’s getting enough nourishment! He has his 2¬†week check up tomorrow so I’m excited to see if he’s growing/where his¬†weight is.

So, lets chat fun things. The¬†weather here is shit. It’s been raining for the past 5 days and now today the high is a measly 39 degrees. I NEED SOME SUN. So, to battle the gloomy blues, I’ve been super into baking. Last¬†week I made pumpkin donuts, this¬†week it¬†was apple donuts. I just searched online for a recipe but I¬†want to start experimenting and making my own recipes!

The apple donuts¬†were baked and then dusted¬†with cinnamon and sugar and seemed a little dense but I still think they tasted amazing. Served¬†with a side of scramble eggs and avocado…yum! I ate 10 of them in 3 days…LOL. Oops.

Apple do-nuts or don’t-nuts

I also tried my hand at a pumpkin spice latte because¬†we all know the ones from Starbucks and Caribou have like a million grams of sugar. If I’m gonna eat a million grams of sugar I’d rather have a couple donuts (or 10) ya know. So I took some milk and pumpkin and cooked that in a pan for about 5 minutes. Then I removed that from the heat and added a little maple syrup (thanks Uncle Danny), vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and brewed coffee. I’d say it’s pretty fantastic. And I feel a lot better drinking this knowing there’s not a ton of unnatural crap in it.

2018-10-11 06.47.16 1.jpg

Baby Spice? Nah, Pumpkin Spice

Now, today is my 29th Birthday. It’s crazy how as you get older (and have kids and dogs) birthday’s get a tiny bit less exciting. I mean obviously it’s fun to know 29 years ago my mom¬†was going through¬†what I¬†went through 2¬†weeks ago (sorry mom-I now know the pain you¬†went through!). But as I age, I just care less about getting presents and more about spending quality time¬†with the people that mean the most in my life. I’d much rather get coffee and chat than anything in the¬†world. I’d much rather take my dog to the state park for a hike on a fall day. I’d rather receive a hug from my mom and dad than a cake. You get it.

Of course a Birthday brings about a¬†whole new year. 365 days to grow, change, adventure, set goals, accomplish goals. If you think about it, 365 days seems like a long time but it’s really not. It sure flies by. So here’s a list of things I’m hoping to see/do in my 29th year.

-Teach my son to be a caring, loving human

– Travel to Banff/Lake Louise

-Try one new thing each month (new recipe, workout class, book)

-Sign up for a new race (hello Lutsen 50K??)

-Donate to puppy shelter

-Send more cards

-Adventure with Sam

-Make wine! Go on a wine tour

-Re-decorate/paint my house/fix it up/plan and save for new house (more like 5 year plan hehe)

-Blog consistently because writing is my true passion

-Relax. Stop being so hard on self.

-More homemade recipes…stop spending $5 on coffee!!!!! SAVE $$$

-Clean out closet-get rid of anything haven’t¬†worn in past year

-Learn to live in the moment and stop wishing for next week/month/year

It’s just a start but having these things¬†written down helps me see¬†what I hope to accomplish and stay on track.

Do you have any goals you want to accomplish in the next year? How do you stay on track? I would love to hear your tips/tricks!

Now it’s time to catch up on laundry, dishes, and This Is Us (I’m only on season 2!).

Have a fabulous fall day.

Baby Harry’s First 12 Days

Hello!

Last night I got almost 7 hours of sleep (2.5 hours at a time) and am finally feeling pretty rested. Introducing coffee back into my life has been really cool and something I look forward to every morning (only 1 cup, don’t¬†worry). I’ve¬†washed myself every day so far except for one stretch¬†where I¬†went 3 days¬†without¬†washing my hair but a little grease is good for everyone sometimes.

Since bringing Harry (Harold?) home from the hospital, things have been pretty great. I’ve only cried 2 times (once because Sam asked me¬†why I saved 1 egg, once because the dog looked so sad and depressed) and am adjusting to life¬†with a tiny human,¬†working husband, and jealous pup. Ruthie does seem to love Harry so much and is getting more adjusted every day. I try to give her lots of pets and kisses and even spoiled her¬†with some new toys.

2018-10-05 08.14.49 1.jpg

The new norm

I’m trying to get us on a consistent feeding schedule and so far it seems to¬†work best every 3 hours. Breastfeeding is tough stuff. Little Harry¬†will latch on and suck for a little but then some times he’ll just sit there. He has been feeding about 30 minutes each time and def likes the left side better than the right (sorry your mom has an inverted nip buddy). Feeding time is so precious because of the little faces he makes and the baby toots he pushes out. I laugh so hard, he’s just so cute.

He did drop a bit of¬†weight his first¬†week (8 lbs 1 oz down to 7 lbs 3 oz) so¬†I¬†was feeding him then pumping, then feeding him¬†what I pumped from a bottle (that could be a song…ya feed, ya pump, ya feed him that pump…whoop, go Harry, go Harry). That fattened him up to 7 lbs 9 oz…YAY! So now¬†we are just trying to strictly bfeed but sometimes he still seems hungry so I give him a little bottle. Again, I’m trying to take each session as a¬†win and remain calm/stress free. If the kid¬†wants more food, give him more food.

The first few days I sucked at putting on diapers. He kept peeing through them (one time during a feeding and it dripped down my leg…how glam) and I couldn’t figure it out. Turns out I¬†wasn’t putting them on high enough in the butt or closing them tight enough…I didn’t¬†want to cut off his circulation but he seems just fine now that I’ve tightened them ūüôā

Harry likes his Mama Roo and snoozing in the pack-n-play. He sleeps in his crib at night¬†with his cactus night light and sound soother and I’m thankful¬†we put him in there right away. His room is right next to ours so any time he¬†wakes up¬†we can hear him.

2018-10-05 08.14.47 1.jpg

My snoozing babes ‚̧

The¬†weather here has been so fall so¬†we’ve been doing some fall baking to stay busy. I made some homemade pumpkin butter and pumpkin donuts. I’m also going to¬†whip up a batch of Grandpa Marion’s chili this afternoon. YUM. OH, I found a recipe for Tumeric Mocha Hot Chocolate I can’t¬†wait to try this¬†weekend. ALL THINGS FALL YO.

2018-10-05 08.14.45 1.jpg

Made frosting instead of Cinnamon Sugar sprinkle…oops!

Other things keeping us busy…visits¬†with many friends and family (we are so thankful for you all and the meals and chats and snuggles you’ve given),¬†walks¬†with Chels and Milo at the park (so nice to talk to another mom), laundry (at least a load a day due to poop explosions and spitup spills), lavender baths, Target runs, vacuuming,¬†walks¬†with Ruthie, closet organization, and goal planning (I want write a book I think). I could get used to this mom life thing ūüôā

I am trying to take it easy and stick to¬†walks right now but am itching to get back into¬†working out. I really¬†want to take 6¬†weeks off to fully recover but it’s hard for me to rest that long. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY.

This¬†weekend mom and dad are maybe going to go on a date…or maybe not. Sam has been so busy¬†with¬†work (school and his new business-squeegeesam.com check it out) so¬†it’s nice to just hangout at home. I also¬†want to have 1 small glass of¬†wine but I’m SO nervous it¬†will affect Harry! People have told me a glass is OK as long as you¬†wait like 2-3 hours to feed but I’m still unsure.

So, that’s about all that’s new¬†with us. Hoping to get to my parents this¬†weekend for a hike then next¬†week Harry is going to take his first road trip to meet my aunts and uncles and grandparents. Can’t¬†wait.

Have a splendid weekend my friends!

XO

-Hales, Harry, and Ruth

Week 37

Officially 2 little weeks and 4 short days until this baby’s due date. I am getting so so excited and trying to remain calm/not stressed. This¬†weekend I have my final baby shower and cannot¬†wait. It’s also hotter/humid-er than hell right now and my feet have finally started to swell. Swell.

I just had my Dr. Appointment and they said the baby’s heart beat is at 130 and perfecto. They also said he’s probs around 6 pounds…a good size. Nothing got shoved in my bumhole this time so that¬†was cool. Bumhole or rectum or anus? I’m not sure¬†what you call it and Sam¬†won’t tell me because he says I should know.

My belly feels bigger this¬†week and I seem to be slowing down a bit. I’ve also felt some contractions (I think??)¬†which is cray cray. Everything gets realllll tight but it doesn’t hurt yet. I¬†weighed 154 this¬†week and just¬†want to snuggle Ruth, arrange the baby room, and carpet clean.

2018-09-13 06.44.40 1.jpg

There’s a human in there!

Now, lets take a brief moment to talk about last¬†weekends diaper shower. Sam’s school held a gathering for us at a local restaurant and it¬†was fantastic. There¬†was good food, lots of chatting, and SO MANY DIAPERS. I¬†was shocked. The baby’s closet is literally overflowing¬†with diapers and¬†wipes and I could cry thinking about it. People are too kind and¬†we are so grateful for so many¬†wonderful people.

2018-09-13 06.44.42 1.jpg

Dipey Dipey wipey wipey

Now, this¬†week I’ve been having some¬†weird dreams. I dreamt that I¬†was¬†walking Ruthie by this big lake and¬†we came to a cliff and the lake¬†was full of golden retrievers. All of a sudden Ruthie got loose and took off and I thought she drowned in the lake. She ended up turning up a¬†week later from the¬†woods and I couldn’t stop crying. I’ve also only¬†wanted to snuggle Ruthie lately and pet her. Odd? IDK.

I also had a vision after a midnight pee run that I¬†would start to¬†write a book on my maternity leave…perhaps.

Cravings have kind of been back this¬†week. Salads, cottage cheese, malts, and donuts. OH AND PIZZA. All I¬†want right now is pizza. I just got a margarita pizza from Punch¬†with a Greco Salad. I ate half of it and am trying to pace myself. I’m guessing that pizza¬†will be gone before I go to bed tonight…just saying. Sam’s out of town this week so he can’t judge me.

My morning appetite is still absent so I’ve been trying to have an apple and string cheese at least to get something in my belly. I love cheese. I also had donuts twice this¬†week…sue me.

2018-09-13 06.44.48 1.jpg

Added some fruit for good measure

Sam said I¬†was starting to get feisty this¬†week and hissed at me like a cat…all because I didn’t¬†want to move over¬†when he came to join me on the front step. Sounds like his problem ūüôā

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the fun things I found at the Munchkin Market last Friday. I was shocked at how not busy it was when I arrived. I took my time and found some really great things. In total I spent $29 and got a snowsuit (that I saw on Poshmark for $50), a MN wild sleeper, a onesie, a cute little pant/sweatshirt set, and some blocks/cars. Sam and I washed everything and are ready to go.

2018-09-13 06.44.46 1.jpg

The baby snowsuit

Lets see,¬†what else has been happening this¬†week…I know¬†what hasn’t…workouts at the gym LOL. I did one on Tuesday and¬†was so over it. I did a 20 min run¬†Wednesday morning and¬†was also over that. So the rest of the¬†week I’ve been taking it easy and did a couple at home¬†workouts. I might hit the gym tomorrow and try something but I might also not. I’ve really loved¬†walking the dog in the morning before¬†work and she’s finally getting used to¬†walking in the dark. It’s our special time together.

That’s about all that’s happened this¬†week. I’m hoping to make some soups and stuff that¬†we can keep in the freezer so¬†when this little guy arrives¬†we¬†won’t have to¬†worry about cooking. Now I’m off to clean the basement carpet because it’s NASTY.

Catch ya later!

WEEK 35

Goooooood Morning! I think I’ve been up on and off since like 1:30 am. Just couldn’t sleep ya know. Looks like today might be a good day for a little nap.

Another¬†week of being preggo has come and gone and I’m still feeling pretty good…for the most part. I am starting to slow down a bit and feel more tired. My back has been real sore (I asked Sam for a massage but haven’t received that yet) and my pelvis feels like it’s splitting apart…maybe it is? I guess in 4ish¬†weeks I’ll be pushing a tiny human through there so it’s probably getting ready for that. Fun!

2018-09-01 07.47.16 1.jpg

35 week bump

Last Saturday¬†we attended our birthing class and it rocked. I seriously loved it and learned so much. Highly recommend a birthing class for any pregnant mom out there. I mean I feel like I knew a few things but I def didn’t know 1) you can go in the bathtub at the hospital¬†while you’re¬†waiting to push the baby out. 2) You can bring snacks! 3) I’m probably going to make some¬†weird noises and that freaks me out but I’ll probably so in the moment I¬†won’t care. 4) Sam might not make it through¬†watching the actual birth (LOL he got so squeamish during the video clips of birth).

They also fed us Olive Garden¬†which tasted amazing. Sam said¬†we’ll probs only need to take that class once but I loved it so much I’d do it again.

Moving on. I think my belly has grown a lot more. My shirts are like belly shirts now but I don’t¬†want to buy any more new clothes since I have 4¬†weeks to go. I did buy some postpartum leggings I’m very excited about….oh and some super cute postpartum undies that go all the¬†way up to my belly button. Birth control? Probably.

This¬†week I¬†weighed in around 150. My appetite in the morning is literally gone except for chocolate milk and fruit. I’ve been having an apple and then eating a Clif bar around 11 and that’s all I can manage¬†which sucks. However, my appetite seems to¬†wake up around 2 pm and all I¬†want is malts, brownies, cake, and pizza. COOOOOL.

My amazing mom came last weekend and brought her instant pot and made us some delicious Barbacoa shredded beef. It was better than Chipotle and I ate it every night for dinner. She also made this loaded mac n cheese with mushrooms and roasted red peppers. HOLY MOLY. Sam and I ate like royalty last week. Also, I need an instant pot. Now.

2018-09-01 07.47.20 1.jpg

Homemade Chipotle

This¬†week I started getting ready to pack my hospital bag (just in case!) and ordered some fun things (thanks cousin Amber!) for after having baby boy. My cousin has been a gem and gave me a ton of good suggestions on things to have on hand like¬†witch hazel pads, gripe¬†water for baby gas, pee training pads for the bed (in case of leakage), epsom salts, and feminine¬†wipes. Yay! I’m still unsure¬†what outfits to pack for baby boy but I know they say to pack a newborn outfit and a 0-3 month outfit in case the kid is hugeeeeee.

As far as¬†workouts go this¬†week, I’m still trying to get to the gym a few times a¬†week and do some at home¬†workouts. I got in a 2 mile run and some interval running/walking on the tread at the gym. However, running right now makes me have to take the biggest poops and it gets real uncomfortable so I’m only doing a little bit.

I’ve been real into strict presses, lunges, and thrusters. A fun at home¬†workout I came up¬†with early this¬†week looked something like this:

15 minute AMRAP

50 Backward stepping lunges

40 Bent Over Rows

30 Push Press

20 Single Leg Deadlifts (10 per leg)

*Finish with as many Strict Press as possible*

SO fun! I make sure to take plenty of breaks for¬†water and don’t let my heart rate get highter than 130/140.

Really hoping these workouts help with the birthing process.

Lastly, I stopped at the farmers market Thursday and bought the most beautiful flowers. I used to hate flowers but now I love them. They make me so happy. I also got some fresh green beans since nothing in my garden is ready to harvest yet.

2018-09-01 07.47.18 1.jpg

Flower Power

Okay, that’s all for this¬†week. Really excited for a nice long¬†weekend. Sam and I have a lot of housework to do but¬†we might toss that aside and hit up the MN State Fair. I need some mini donuts and cheese curds.

Have a safe and adventurous weekend!

Week 34

5¬†weeks 4 days til baby boy is due and¬†we still can’t decide on a name. That’s OK though,¬†we¬†will figure it out after he’s pushed out and in our arms ūüôā

The 34th¬†week is coming to a close and I am still feeling pretty good. Sleeping isn’t that big of a problem (everything I’ve read says you¬†won’t be able to sleep…LIES!), except for those damn calggf cramps! Ruthie has been just the biggest snuggle bug lately so I don’t even need blankets because she’s just a little heat box.

My belly seems to still be growing and I def can’t see my feet let alone clip my toenails or shave my legs. Sam¬†won’t do it for me so I guess I’m going to have really long toenails and leg hairs…cute. My finger nails are like talons (thanks prenatal vitamins) so that’s pretty fun. I’m not sure how much I¬†weigh because I don’t own a scale but I feel like it’s somewhere around 153.

2018-08-25 07.52.47 1.jpg

Big Green Bump

I really have not had any cravings. I actually haven’t been super hungry lately¬†which is annoying. I guess salads and peaches sound good all the time and chocolate shakes. Okay, so maybe I do have some cravings still. Oh and ice cold¬†water. Can’t get enough of that stuff.

As far as¬†working out goes, it’s def getting harder. I’m getting out of breath faster and I feel like my energy is zapped right away. I made it to the gym 3 times this¬†weeks and did an at home¬†workout. I also did a 3 mile run but I’m over running right now so I think i’ll stick to¬†walking. I can run in like 2 months so¬†whatevs.

I did start a new jobbhhbgh Monday so I’ve been sleeping in til 4:45 or 5 instead of 4:15 and it’s kind of nice. Gives me time to¬†walk the dog before catching the bus¬†which is very relaxing in the early morning hours.

Now, last¬†weekend I had my first family baby shower. It¬†was so great. My aunts on my dad’s side hosted in¬†Wisconsin and I had a blast. There¬†were super fun games (baby bingo, the Price is Right, and Animal Gestational Cycle matching), great food complete¬†with a lion veggie platter, and the most adorable MN¬†Wild cake ever. It¬†was a fantastic afternoon¬†with family and I felt so special and loved ūüôā

2018-08-24 06.58.21 1.jpg

Food!

Not much else is new¬†with us. I think¬†we might be nesting? At least I am. All I¬†want to do is clean everything, cook some meals, and¬†wash the baby clothes and blankets/organize. Yeah, that sounds like nesting. Oh, and get in some last month snuggles¬†with Ruthie. She’s just a little angel.

2018-08-24 06.58.20 2.jpg

Baby girlllll

Today is going to be a busy day as¬†we have our baby class! Yay, I’m so excited to learn some things and relieve some of the stress I’m currently feeling. I feel like I know nothing! So that should be fun/exciting.

Other than that, hoping to get some baby laundry detergent today, a rotisserie chicken, and an iced Americano and clean the shit out of the house.

Catch ya next week peeps!
