Life lately

Thanksgiving has come and gone and Christmas is 15 days away! I still have gifts to get and I haven’t wrapped a thing and placed it under the tree!

Are there any other last minute people out there besides me?!

So I know I am uber late on a Thanksgiving post but I was so proud of our spread because this was the first year the hubs and I actually cooked the meal! Both of our parents weren’t able to spend it with us so we hosted some friends and cooked some of the meal, and our friends brought some dishes as well.

I have to say my hubby’s turkey breast came out delicious and I was SO proud of my mac and cheese! I hope you all enjoyed your Turkey Day! Now we’re working on planning our Christmas dinner…do you have any traditions or foods you prepare each year around the holidays?

Our Turkey Day Spread! Yum! 

20 Week Baby Bump [Yes I am aware there’s a pair of boobs behind me on the screen…bad photo timing!]

Here’s my current pregnancy update:

  • How
    far along: 
    22 weeks – more than ½ way there!
  • How
    big is baby: 
    About the size of a spaghetti squash, weighing in at
    almost 1lb
  • Weight
    gain: 
    Not sure, next MD visit is next week. We’ll find out if I
    packed on some Thanksgiving pounds!
  • Sleeping:  It
    is hit or miss but my pregnancy pillow really helps. Now that my belly is
    getting bigger it’s a bit harder to get comfortable.
  • Food
    cravings: 
    Nothing really
  • Food
    aversions: 
    Still avoiding garlic.
  • Missing: Adult
    drinks. Went to my company’s holiday party this past weekend and had to
    drink juice or ginger ale while everyone else enjoyed the open bar…Le
    sigh. I also really miss making spiked hot chocolate with the hubby around
    this time of year.
  • Symptoms: Feeling
    pretty good, I’ve been taking it easy and trying not to do too much. I
    have some aches and pains here and there, but that’s normal.
  • Doctor’s
    appointment: 
    Next week!
  • Movement: Baby
    is definitely on the move! I have no idea what s/he is doing in there
    sometimes! Having a dance party is my guess! I love feeling the kicks
    though.
  • Gender
    / Names: 
    Beautiful baby girl J
  • Best
    moment of the week:  
    Got in some sweet cuddle time with my
    son over the weekend, trying to enjoy the times when it’s just the 2 of us
    since he’ll have a baby sister soon.
  • What
    I’m looking forward to: 
    Hearing
    the heartbeat at my next appt! It’s my favorite part
  •  What
    I did / Got for baby: 
    So the hubs and I did break down and get
    one outfit! But I’ve been really good at not caving in to buying ALL the
    adorable girly clothes they have. I can’t say the same for my mom and
    sister though…they’ve def been buying up a storm! My next goal is to work
    on our registry!
