This past weekend was super fun and eventful, kicking off the first day of summer with a BBQ for Aaron's work friends. Everything was super easy and fun and it was nice to have some time to just relax together.
Some fun things I did for the BBQ:
|chalkboard sign in backyard- can do this with any old picture frame & chalkboard paint.|
|All-American fruit kabobs--perfect for 4th of July parties!|
|Made this sign last minute out of a cardboard box. Just cut out the triangles, spray painted them with chalkboard paint and wrote on them with chalk (I used twine for the banner)! I thought it was cute for a backyard BBQ.|
Getting to spend some time with Elle was nice too, even if we were surrounded by other people playing beer pong together, I always enjoy time with my sister!
|Spending a couple of hours together tanning at Lake Hemet|
As if the week couldn't get any better--celebrating being 6 months pregnant!
Last week's pregnancy update:
Weight gain: 12 pounds
Symptoms: At the end of this week I really started to notice my feet hurting (do I need new shoes??) if I’m on them all day. Also my legs get sore if I’m walking around too much as well.
Changes: My body is definitely feeling and looking more and more pregnant each week! They say after 20 weeks baby starts growing at a more rapid pace than ever and starts putting on fat. I definitely felt the difference with my body this week.
Clothes: Running pants and tanks. Embracing the bump rather than covering it up.
Sleep: Can’t get enough of it.
Missing: A cold beer on a Friday night (& a pair of jeans that fit just right)
Cravings: What am I NOT craving? Tuna, baked potatoes, grapefruit, GRILLED ARTICHOKES, crème brulee (it’s beginning to become a problem), and iced decaf mochas! Anybody have weird pregnancy cravings?
Best moment this week: Having a BBQ on Saturday for Aaron’s work friends and getting to see my sister and meet her boyfriend! Did I mention I even got to play beer pong?! Obviously no drinking on my part (hey pregnant women can have fun too!)
Looking forward to: Aaron’s mom coming out here this Saturday!!!!! I am so excited to see her and have someone play with my hair, and have girl talk with for a week
